“Not up to Hampton Standards”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

Hotel is in poor condition and I was disappointed in my stay. The rooms are just tired. A recent refresh had been implemented but it did not cut it in my opinion. I stay most often at Hilton Brand hotels and Hampton Inn is my primary choice and I typically like the experience. This hotel is located off of a road underconstruction and is a little difficult to get in and out of. The Hotel appears to be an older vintage that has had a refresh but it just didn't cut it in my book.

Folks at this location are wonderful and provide great service to meet everyone's need. They are friendly, courteous and happy. Hampton Inn facility is just what you would expect in any Hampton Inn. Trip advisor need 200 words in review. But I don't know what else I can add. Other than it was wonderful and I will stay there again.

This hotel has a great location. It is close to restaurants and shopping malls. I would definitely stay here again! If you are coming to Charlotte on business, vacation or any other trip I recommend you stay at the Hampton. The rooms are very clean and the staff is very helpful and friendly.

We traveled to be with friends for a ministry event and had a wonderful surprise when we checked into the hotel! Clean and nicely decorated lobby, nice room with a comfortable bed, clean bathroom and lovely help. The breakfast was amble and satisfying even for a diabetic! Can't wait for our next trip.

My husband and I were in Charlotte to visit relatives just after Christmas. We stay in Hampton Inn on most hotel trips. The staff was very friendly and tried to be helpful, but this HI is very dated.

The night coffee was cold in the lobby. The coke machine did not work on 3 floors..later, the lady from the front desk located a coke for us. There was only one light switch in the restroom. Of course, I did not notice the light over the mirror was burned out until bedtime. They offered to switch rooms, but when we went to the new room, the neighbors were very loud and we decided to stay in the original room.

Breakfast was not the normal Hampton Breakfast..they did have breakfast sandwiches you could heat in the microwave.

This HI room was 1/3 smaller than normal. The bed was comfortable but the comforter was very lumpy. Still, the staff was very nice.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that is in a quiet area. I do not know where that would be.

Future visits to this site will probably be great- but currently, there is a massive remodel going on! The lobby was a disaster, check-ins were in a first floor room. B'fast was in a hallway. Not what we expected at all....

As all the Hamptons this one is good, the only issue while my stay is that it was under renovations, so there was no lobby, no dinning room, but people tried their best to make things easier. actually the lobby was inside of a room and breakfast are was in a type of 2 rooms.
