Hampton Inn Roanoke Rapids

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 1, 2013

I made a reservation and received a "confirmation" number from Hampton Inn Roanoke Rapids in North Carolina for a "Room Type: 1KING STUDY SOFABED NOSMOK". Confirmed!! When I arrived I was told "sorry, all king size beds are booked". I said, "I know, one is booked by me". I was then told, "none are available", a classic bait-and-switch tactic. Then, when I came into the room on the sixth floor, my "free wireless Internet" connection had a weak signal of one bar and kept fading in and out due to the very weak signal. Lastly, the shower head, forget having a "pulsating" shower, it did not work! I am only giving two stars because the room was clean and the shower had hot water.

Room Tip: Lower floors have stronger wireless Internet connection.

We stopped just for an overnight at this Hampton Inn. It is an easy on and off I-95 just about 8 mines south of the Virginia-North Carolina border. General appearance of the hotel was clean and orderly. Room was clean and comfortable. I was afraid that the proximity to the Interstate might produce too much noise but, in fact, the room was quiet. Breakfast buffet was very good and the staff was very friendly and attentive. I had to move my room because the first room had a shower only and my wife wished to take a bath. We were put quickly in the room right next door with a minimum of effort. You can walk to a Cracker Barrel restaurant which is in an adjoining building.Overall: good stay, clean room, friendly staff.

Bed and linens were comfortable and updated. Bathroom was clean. Tv was flat screen. Furniture was very old, crappy and wobbly. Free breakfast was ok. I've had terrific free breakfasst at other Hampton Inn locations so i was a bit disappointed in the crumbled eggs and funny tasting sausage. So I went on to try the Oatmeal- yuck!- totally overcooked and disgusting. Settled for prepackaged name brand yogurt. My 21 year old daughter was happy with her freshly made waffle though.

Room Tip: There are a lot of hotels in this area. I chose this one because i am a member of the Hilton Honors...

this is probably one of the best accessible rooms I've stayed in. First of all, it was HUGE. Lots and lots of floor space, very large bathroom, nice workstation and plenty of room around the beds. Also, this hotel still uses bed frames that use actual legs and not bed boards, which is a big bonus for me. I travel with a hydraulic lift that needs to go underneath a bed in order for me to get in and out of bed. More and more hotels these days are beginning to use bed boards that go all the way to the floor all the way around the bed. I understand that this is to save on cleaning costs since, that way they don't need to clean underneath the bed. But it also makes it impossible for anyone needing assistance in and out of bed, unless you travel around with wooden blocks to prop up a bed, which we do.

However, as I said, this hotel still uses proper bed legs in their handicapped rooms, so big kudos to the management of this property!

Also, I read elsewhere that the accessible room was "very noisy". This wasn't my experience at all, and we stayed on a Friday night. The room was very quiet even though the hotel was fairly busy and I got a great night sleep. This will definitely be a stopping point for me if I travel down south along the East Coast again.

Also, as a side note, even though this property is not listed as having a hotel, directly across the parking lot is a Cracker Barrel which is in easy walking/rolling distance.

Our family felt the Hamptonality at this hotel. Not only is the staff amazing, their attitude was amazing too! Would recommend this hotel to anyone. Also, the elevators are very fast!! I was having a awesome conversation with the front desk! They even let me help with some chores. Overall a fantastic hotel. :-)

Room Tip: "Suites are clean" "Try to be on the side away from I-95
