This was our second stay at this Hamton Inn. The first one went without a hitch, and seemed to be a good place to stay for a couple days because of its location.This time, not so much.
When we arrived, and were assigned a room, workers were there changing all the locks. They pretty much made the hall carpets filthy which we assumed would be cleaned up. They never were while we were there. Shortly after we got in the room, and started unpacking, they advised that we had to change rooms because the new lock was not working. We got the keys to the new room, and moved our things. That evening I left the room to get some ice. My wife was in the room in her nightgown, and since I was coming right back, she didn't bolt the door. While I was getting ice, some people with bags were complaining that the front desk had given them keys to a room that was occupied, with somebody in the room. When I got back to the room, I found out they had barged in on my wife in her nightgown. The next nighe we were going out to a dinner dress up affair. When we went to put on our formal shoes, we couldn't find them. We checked the car in case our memories were faulty, and then realized they must habeen left in the closet in the other room since that was the only thingwe put in the closet before we were moved. Thinking we may have to go to the formal affair in our sneakers, we went down and talked to the desk. They checked the lost & found, but they weren't there. The desk clerk then disappeared, and shortley came back wioth our shoes, which we changed in the lobby. While we were thankful to get our shoes, it seems like they should have figured out they were ours when they were turned in. I couldn't get on the internet using our new room number, so on a whim I tried the first room number, and got on. Later on I decided that parking in the back would be closer to our room via the door back there that said use your room key to get in. Of course it didn't work, so I walked around to the front. We had been been willing to put up with just one small trash can in the room, covering up the air conditioner, which blows directly on anyone sitting at the desk, no safe, the new trend with a duvette (not sure that's the right word) on the beds, where you have your choice between being too hot, or too cold, etc., but the other problems will have us staying elsewhere on our next trip to my native area.
