“Decent for the cost”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

We stayed here for Spring Break. Big reason was for the pool. It was really small and always seemed cloudy and not clean. The kids did not mind, of course, but I thought it was yucky. Overall, the experience was fine for a Hampton Inn. Decent breakfast. Hotel was really busy because of St. Patrick's Day and Spring Breakers like us. Service was friendly, room was clean. Also, the queen bed sagged to the middle terribly. Made sleeping uncomfortable.

Dear AnneLeawood;

Thank you for bringing your pool experience to our attention. We are working on the issue and appreciate your feedback. We apologize for any inconvenience during your stay.

We do run a high occupancy at this location; St. Pat's Day & Spring Break, combined, do make it a busy time.

Please come back to experience our clean rooms and interact with our friendly staff. If you have a bed that is not to your liking, please let our Front Desk know - we will do whatever we can to make your stay comfortable.

We Love Having You Here!

This Hampton is located next to Forest Park in St. Louis, which is where you'll find the St. Louis Zoo, St. Louis Art Museum and the Missouri History Museum--all of which have free admission. The park itself is also worth driving around. The hotel is about 10-15 minutes from downtown St. Louis where the Arch, Eugene Fields House and Toy Museum, Busch Factory Tour, and Busch Stadium are located. This Hampton also has plenty of free self parking (the downtown Hampton charges for parking). It seemed a popular hotel for families with young children, and breakfast every morning was a crowded affair. I was there four nights, and all but one morning I had trouble finding a table to sit at, and various items ran out, though the staff seemed to be dilligently trying to restock as quickly as possible. They also opened a conference room for additional seating when it wasn't booked. The desk staff was very friendly and efficient. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and I slept very well. I would stay here again the next time I'm in St. Louis.

Dear ChrissyHny;

Thank you for your nice review. I couldn't have said it any better!

We are located in an Urban District, on the outskirts of St. Louis, and have the luxury of complimentary parking. Most Downtown properties do charge a nightly parking fee.

Yes, we are a family friendly hotel, and fill quickly for Spring Break, Summer vacations, etc. As you mentioned, Breakfast is always a popular hot spot!! We do our best to keep the area stocked and clean.

Please come back and enjoy our Fresh & Clean bedding. We Love Having You Here!

Hampton had extremely helpful/friendly staff from the front desk to the maids!! Great location as far as getting to St. Louis sights, w/ a lot of helpful info. from staff. Really great complimentary breakfast. Nice clean rooms. We enjoyed our stay here in a suite. Only negative was that the pool was a bit small and often crowded.

Room Tip: The suites are nice and offer some extra room, microwave, small fridge, etc. We had a great view of...

Was visiting for a wedding and so lots of people in town and staying here. The hotel did not miss a beat. Everything was great! The staff was wonderful and very very accommodating. The rooms were perfect. The breakfast was nice and the common areas were wonderful. We have a big family so togetherness is a priority and they made it one too!

The most friendly Hampton Inn we have stayed at! The rooms were clean, bed was like home, pool was clean and warm for our grandkids, breakfast was very tasty with a great variety, and the staff in all departments were friendly. Great location and free parking. This was the best place we have stayed in St. Louis over the past 10 years.

This Hampton Inn is one of the best, if not the best, we've stayed at. It is exceptionally well managed with trained, pleasant staff from front desk to breakfast room. Though the property is six years old, it looks like it opened yesterday. Common areas are spotless and well maintained and our room the same. The location is unbeatable for visits to St. Louis. It is across the highway from Forest Park with the marvelous zoo and art museum, etc, a bit over five minutes to superb restaurants on The Hill, a few minutes to Clayton business district and many other parts of the city offering great shopping, hospitals, etc. And, it is a good value.

Room Tip: We liked our room which was a double queen suite at the end of the hall. Excellent natural light wit...
