“Pleasant Stay”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

My choice is a Hilton Property and generally a Hampton Inn.

This was very clean and staff pleasant and professional. It appeared that a portion of the property was updated but not the bathrooms or furniture in the rooms. But, there were no complaints on comfort or cleanliness at all. The pool and spa are not available as they are being updated - which seems odd for the summer time when families travel.

The breakfast is typical of many Hampton Inn's these days with the microwaveable meal becoming the standard. It is not unusual nor unexpected. After all, this is not a restaurant and they are miles above the continental breakfast that first became popular a number of years ago.

Fresh coffee, fresh fruit, juices, milk, yogurt, breads, cereals and now breakfast sandwiches and here they have a waffle maker for fresh waffles. It isn't something one can fault. The breakfast area was well stocked and clean and above the average motel type of establishment. One can always pay more for a room if they want a typical cooked to order breakfast.

This location was hard to see from the highway but eventually did appear as one continued down a road covered with trees. I followed the signs and there it was. There are not a lot of dinner options without going out a bit at this location.

This is a location I would recommend but is not as updated as some of the locations I have visited.

My wife and I have stayed at this hotel numerous times when visiting family in NC. The breakfast is always excellent and the area is open all day with some snacks, coffee, water, and juices always available - plus cookies! The hotel has been managed by the same man for several years and he does a great job in training his staff and seeing that the hotel is periodically upgraded to retain a new look. The rooms are always very clean and comfortably large. Conveniently located at Exit 85 on Interstate 40. To me, there is no better hotel in this area of NC.

Room and facility was fine. Typical of Hampton Inn. I have used HI almost exclusively for over 10 years. I realize that the breakfast is not now nor has it ever been high end. But, I have come to expect a certain quality in the free breakfast. This place is a joke. They have no "fresh" food. All the hot meals were in a refrigerator with a picture on the wrapper of what was inside. There were microwaves for you to heat up your food. Result was terrible. Also, all pastries that my daughter tried were stale. So we ended up with cold cereal and waffles. Should have complained but we just left in search of food. Other than this the place was fine but for the cost they could at least move up to the level of other HI's.

We've stayed at this Hampton several times over the past few years and It's a good dependable place to stay. I stay in Hilton properties quite often on business travel and they are my first choice. This was a weekend trip for my wife and me. Staff was friendly and helpful. Hamptons typically are predictable and almost always a good stay, but predictable is GOOD. You know what to expect. This is a good choice for this part of North Carolina.

We always try to stay at a Hampton Inn because you can depend on them being consistent. I always feel comfortable staying, the rooms are always very clean, the beds are comfy, and I love the fact that they launder the bed duvets between guests!

If you happen to need lodging in Marion or surroundings and you have a car available, it's a choice you won't regret. The staff is friendly, the rooms are comfortable, and they provide ample choices of breakfast items with the complimentary breakfast. They also provided cookies, chips, water and fresh fruit throughout the day. This was a great value. Marion itself doesn't have that much to look at or do unless you happen to be there for a wedding as I was, but it's not terribly far from Asheville, 28 miles. All in all, an experience I would repeat in the future, if I found myself in that region again.
