“Quiet Hampton Inn”
Reviewed August 15, 2012 via mobile

My wife and I stayed at this Hampton on a trip to Maine. The hotel had to be one of the quietest Hamptons that I have ever visited. The staff went out of their way to be helpful. At night my wife needed a glass of milk to take with her medications and they opened the pantry to get one for her. That service is much appreciated!

Let me just say this review is based on expectations from a business traveler for a chain hotel, catering to business travelers.

My room was clean and comfortable; linens, bathroom were all in fine working order. The staff was fine

What wasn't so good
- About half the TV stations didn't work; HBO, ESPN, CNN, Fox News all did not come in. I asked the front desk and they said they just got a new system and it wasn't working right. Some channels did work (cartoon, disney, some local networks...)
- The A/C is very loud, so loud that you can't hear the TV (the channels I did get) when its on
- The internet connection was very poor, extremely slow through their Wayport network. It was slow to browse, slow send email attachments, and don't even think about trying to stream a netflix movie.

Overall, i'd much rather have a comfortable bed and hot running water, which this Hampton did just fine. But these minor things really irked me and I will look elsewhere next time i'm in NH.

We stayed here in April 2012 and had booked rooms based upon our last pleasant experience in April 2011. This is nicely run, clean and close to many restaurants and attractions including Kittery where we were going to.

I highly recommend staying here if you are in the area.

I recently returned from a wedding weekend for a good friend from high school and college. The Hampton Inn did not disappoint in accommodating the needs of a large number of guests from out of town.

Although we booked a room with a single bed, they gave us two beds but that was not a problem. The continental breakfast in the morning was standard but they did have delicious chocolate chip cookies upon arrival on Friday afternoon. Although it is a little on the pricey side, I'd stay here again if in Dover.

This was the second time we stayed at this hotel. Both times our stay was very nice. The staff was friendly and accommodating, the rooms comfortable and clean and quiet. Hampton Inn does a nice job in laying out their floors and sound proofing the rooms from street noise. The air conditioner was super quiet. Unlike some hotels where the air conditioner make load noises as they cycle on and off. We did not hear slamming doors - fortunately we were are a floor where the other guests were considerate of others. At our request we were not located in the areas where a sport team and wedding party stayed.

The breakfast food was varied and adequate. One area of improvement to consider are the bath towels - they could be a little larger. Our compliments to the manager and the staff - this is a well run hotel.

Room Tip: We call ahead and request a room in a quiet location o the hotel. Sometimes this works and other tim...

I was in Dover for a one night stay that was all business. This location of Hampton Inn was very clean and fresh, and the public areas were extremely well kept. I appreciated the extra room in their breakfast area, and they didn't have to try and squeeze tables tightly together.
The location was also very convenient to resturaunts, local businesses, with great access to the highway. I'd recommend it highly!

Room Tip: On the third floor at the end of the hall tends to keep noise levels down.

Came up here for a week-end swim meet with our 9-year-old, and we'll be back. Quiet (despite most of the swim team staying here), a very comfortable room, and extremely practical.

The best thing about this hotel, as far as the team was concerned, was not the nice, warm pool, but the large lobby/breakfast area, which served as an informal meeting area/dining area and rumpus room. It was large, comfortable and perfect for just hanging out.

Also good, from our point of view, was the hot breakfast. We had to be at the meet at 6:15 am (!), and the breakfast started, supposedly, at 6:00 am, so we thought it would be a tight scrape. But the management was practical and customer-friendly, and the food was out and ready before 6:00 am.

The objections? Well, it's a Hampton Inn, not one of the more upscale brands in the Hilton lineup. So the in-room coffee was pretty thin, the fittings not quite sumptuous, etc., etc. It was a cold day in June, and we could NOT manage the heat properly, so I woke up in the middle of the night dreaming of global warning, I kid you not. But it's a minor complaint; you know the drill already if you do a lot of chain hotels.

All in all, though, a pretty good experience at a fair price. This is apparently the default hotel for our Boston-based swim club, and I can see why.
