“Good Hotel”
Reviewed November 1, 2011

This is probably about the best place to stay in Kinston - comfortable beds, average size room. Everything is clean, staff is friendly and has a great breakfast and evening snacks.

We stayed here between a visit to the Lenox Factory and a stay in Ocean Isle,NC. Love the free WiFi but even more importantly the entire facility is very clean. The breakfast foods are hot when the're supposed to be and cold when the're supposed to be and the lady working the room keeps it very clean and well stocked and she has a smile for everyone.

When we booked three rooms for a family gathering I was a little concerned because a previous TA reviewer had cited some minor issues there. But apparently they've been addressed because our stay was excellent in every respect. The rooms were fine, everything immaculate,their breakfast was plentiful and the staff seemed to go out of their way for us. I was especially impressed by a 5:00-7:00PM reception which offered free snacks,sandwiches, soft drinks and water. I've stayed in some much more expensive hotels that did not provide that and it was a very pleasant surprise. I hope they continue it because it's a very nice touch. I highly recommend the Hampton Inn, Kinston.

The lobby is very nice but it stops there. The internet is slow, old tv, remote did not work. As a Diamond Hilton i am use to nicer Hamptons. When I came back from dinner there was a group in the front of hotel drinking from brown bags. I did not feel comfortable or safe. The bed felt as though it was going to colapse. I do NOT recommend this hotel. The front desk person was very polite.

We stayed here one night on our way back from the beach. The hotel has some age on it, but the interior has been updated. Inside hallways are always a plus, and the rooms are clean and have comfortable beds.

We loved the breakfast, which includes pastry items and cereal, as well as waffles, eggs, and sausage.

We didn't get to use the pool or the fitness center. The WifI was fast. We had no problems while staying here.

The attendant who checked us in was very friendly.

I would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a first floor room.

My husband and I spent one night at this hotel. It is very clean, quiet and well located right on Hwy 258. We have stayed at Hamptons before and like their ameneties - great hot breakfast with eggs, bacon or sausage, fruit, waffles, etc. The beds are very nice deep pillow top only they are trying to use their old shallow pocket sheets. As a result, several times a night you have to get up and remake the bed because the bottom sheet and mattress cover won't stay on and end up in a ball under the occupants. We are not restless sleepers, it's just that the sheets are too small. The bathroom is lovely with granite counters but they are very small. If you want to close the door, you have to wiggle between the sink and the toilet. It is definitely a one person bath room - no such thing as one person using the sink and one person using the toilet. On the positive side, the staff is very friendly and pleasant. We would stay here again.

Stayed here late June 2011. Booked the room on Hilton points - this is one of the VERY few left in the lousy Hilton reward system that gives you a room for just 7500 points/night. Well spent, I say!

For a Hampton, this place is quite large - has an indoor pool and the best Hampton breakfast I have ever seen - and I use Hamptons in NJ, PA, VA, and NC quite often! They had a very competent breakfast staff, and had boiled eggs, fruits (oranges, even!), omelets, and much more available. Staff in general were pleasant and courteous; check-in/checkout seamless.

I have seen other recent reviewers complaining about the beds and the rooms being outdated. this was definitely NOT my experience! I say stay here if are in the area or need a roughly halfway stop between Myrtle Beach and DC/PA/NJ - you won't go wrong! And you will see the biggest tobacco fields in the mid-Atlantic, btw - all going to supply China, no doubt!
