“Dirty Pool”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

Pool was horribly dirty when we arrived (Wednesday) but by Friday night it had been cleaned for the weekend guest. We were so annoyed because our 3 year old wanted to get in the pool and couldn't because it was so dirty. We were checking out on Saturday, so we were not able to use the pool ;( Apart from that though everything else was fine.

I am sorry to hear that the pool was dirty Abigail S. We do clean the pool on a daily basis to make it as clean as possible for our guest enjoyment. With it being cleaned everyday and our recent new paint coating, our pool is cleaner than ever. I do apologize for the pool not being at its best on your stay and I will make sure that it gets attention everyday. I am glad that everything else with your stay was a success and we look forward to helping you out in future stays at The Hampton Inn Elizabeth City.

We were traveling to OBX for the first time with a special needs family and this hotel was perfect place to stop for the night before embarking in an early departure for the island. Convenient location for restaurants, shopping and gasoline and easy access for the final leg of our trip.

Our stay was for three nights. We were satisfied with the amenities in general. The front desk staff was very helpful in finding the info on local and nearby Visitors' attractions. The room was clean and security at the hotel was great. We would certainly recommend this location to our friends and family.

Above and Beyond the best hotel experience in many years. The Staff was very welcoming and helpful. The room was wonderful and quiet even though it was the closest room to the elevator we never heard the elevator. Breakfast was delightful. Check out was a breeze. Best Hotel experience in many years and I stay at hotels about 20 times a year over the past 10 years.

Thank you Jim H for all of your great comments! My name is Dave Winslow and I am the new General Manager of the Hampton Inn Elizabeth City. We really try our best to go above and beyond the call of duty when it comes to service. The new breakfast has a massive varitey that changes daily to give different flavors each day rather that the same food each morning. Our front desk crew will be flattered to hear the kind words you wrote. Thank you again and from all of us here at The Hampton Inn Elizabeth City we love to have you here!

Hampton Inn is one of my favorite business class chains, and this hotel met my expectations. The staff was courteous and the hotel was clean.

This looks like an an older property that has been recently remodeled/refreshed. The lobby and breakfast area look new - very nice and open. The breakfast is what you'd expect at a Hampton, including just about anything you'd want in a continental breakfast plus some hot items. Some reviewers have noted that the rooms are a little small, but our handicap accessible room was spacious. The bathroom was OK - I've seen more upscale bathrooms at newer Hampton Inns. The carpeting in our room and the hallways appear new.

If I were passing through Elizabeth City again, I'd likely stay here.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
"Any port in a storm" is an old seaman's saying, but if you're actually caught in a storm, try to make it to the town that surrounds our Hampton Inn® hotel in Elizabeth City. Why? Well, first of all, we're a harbor that offers a huge array of services. You'll find shops, docks, stores, and restaurants all along our waterfront. And second? We're home to the United States Coast Guard. They're just six miles from the Hampton Inn hotel in Elizabeth City. While you're in town, make sure to explore our gorgeous neighborhoods. Many boast Greek Revival, antebellum, Italianate, and Victorian homes and businesses. Those who love golf will find championship links within just a few minutes of our hotel in Elizabeth City. Lastly, if you pull into our town by boat, don't be surprised if you're greeted by a friendly welcome party complete with roses. It's a long tradition here in town-started by two private citizens in 1983 and continued by Elizabeth City's "Rose Buddies." It's yet another reason why we think you'll agree that the Hampton Inn hotel in Elizabeth City is in the friendliest harbor on the Eastern seaboard. ... more   less
