4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

I recently spent one night here for business and it was very nice. Extremely helpful staff, clean well appointed room and excellent location. Would definitely recommend it. Rooms are all easy to access and no playing parking lot roulette to be near the right door.

Room Tip: If you have serious smoke allergies, do be warned even the non-smoking rooms still have a bit of od...

I thought this Hampton Inn was a little nicer than many I have stayed in. Our room and bathroom were large, wifi connected easily, the beds were very comfortable and the room was unusually quiet.

The lobby area was nice and large enough so it didn't feel crowded even during the breakfast rush. I liked that there were several stations set up - one counter for eggs, one for waffles, one for oatmeal and cereal, so you really didn't have to stand in line. The pre-made omlettes were fine and the oatmeal and fresh fruit were good. Coffee and tea were always available.

The pool was a typical small pool but looked nice and clean. I was sorry I didn't get a chance to use it. I would stay there again.

Room Tip: Even though we were near the elevator, it was very quiet.

Recently stayed at the Hampton Inn Polaris to attend Winterfair. The hotel was a little more than I normally would have wanted to spend for just one night as a means to spend more time shopping, however, this hotel won me over. When we checked in, they had cookies waiting and the room was extremely clean and very well maintained. Not only did they have the basics but there were conveniences such as a place to charge cell phones, Kindle, etc. on the nightstand and wipes to sanitize the phone and remote. The linens and bed were cozier than what I have at home The staff not only recommended a restaurant, they supplied me with a coupon for it - that has never happened to me before. Another review of this hotel mentioned something about a refrigerator and a microwave in the room. Our room did not have either of these, but I assume that perhaps that review was referencing a suite? In any case, we weren't in the room long enough to miss either. Breakfast the next morning was excellent - lots of choices and, once again, staff right there to offer plain scrambled eggs as well as a fancier version of the same thing - no they weren't the real thing but hotel breakfast bars aren't set up for that either. I would definitely return and kudos to all the staff for their excellent attitudes toward customer service. What a treat to find people so willing to help.

Another clean, well located Hampton Inn. No surprises. Friendly, helpful staff. Breakfast was standard fare. Beds were comfortable and room was quiet. Location was easy access to interstate. Pricing was a little on the higer side of the other Hampton Inns we stayed at on this trip. Definitely plan to stay here again.

Good for a hampton inn, about what you'd expect. Friendly, efficient service at check inn, upgrade to a large room was a nice bonus. Room was clean, bed comfortable. Shower could have used a little more pressure, but that's just a personal preference. Room location was very quiet, which was nice. Dissapointed that only 1 cookie was left at 6pm at the front, but hey if you are going to offer them, have enough available. Also, disappointed in the breakfast. Breakfast sea had plenty of room, but limited selection compared to other hampton inns, just went with a bowl of cereal. These little things are the reason this was a 5 on the rating.

We stayed a weekend for a sporting event. The room was clean and quiet. It was spacious because it was the handicapped version. A good choice if you like to spread out. Beds were comfortable and the TV was an appropriate sized LCD with a good selection of channels. Very nice little details like antiseptic wipes if you want wipe down the phone and remote as well as a sticky note letting you know the bedspread and blankets were cleaned for your stay. These usually leave the bed first when I travel.

Breakfast was good and the staff kept it well stocked during the entire breakfast period. They worked really hard, but were cheery and pleasant the entire time. Good people. The entire hotel staff was friendly and engaging. The only drawback to this hotel was the funky access. The lot connected to an access road that only allowed you to turn right at either intersection. The good news is that this configuration really minimizes drive by traffic since it is so out of the way. I felt confident my vehicle would be intact and present the next morning. Another plus was the ample parking spaces in number and size. No door dinging is a plus.
