“Excellent”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

This is one of a myriad of relatively new chain motels in the area. Last time in the area, we stayed next door at the Fairfield Inn, which we found to be very good. The Hampton Inn here is no slouch. We felt it to be excellent. The hotel was attractive, clean and inviting. Check in was pleasant and painless.

I had asked for a room on a high floor away from the elevator and vending. I got it.

The room was very good - the bathroom had a great shower. The bed was comfortable. And the headboard of the bed is up against the bathroom wall - away from your neighbor's headboard. The Marriott Courtyard had been doing this for years, I am glad to see Hampton Inns following suit.

Th\e highlight of the hotel, to me, was the breakfast room - really spacious and well appointed. The choice of breakfast items was very good and the items were laid out well.

Since my first experience with Hampton Inns in early 2000's, I have never had a negative experience. It is my first choice. They are great. In 2005, I could not find a motel in the Ocean City, MD area. I had no GPS or smart phone back then. We called Hampton Inn on the cellphone and they directed us to the closest one. Since then, I always look for a Hampton in the area.

We stayed at this hotel in the past week. I told my husband that this hotel is rated well because they have a special touch. From the front desk at check in being done very well, to the phone call to check if we had any needs, to the morning breakfast being above average for continental, including the lady who worked in the breakfast staying on top of the food and kitchen areas to keep it clean to finally having an impressionable time in the weight room with fresh towels at each piece of equipment along with disposable earbuds, this hotel was tops. We look forward to our next return.

We like to stay at Hampton Inns when the price is equitable to other moderately priced hotels in the same area. We have usually been very satisifed with thier accomodations, cleanliness, and friendly staff. This Hampton was as nice as any we have stayed in over many years. We would have to agree with with another reviewer that we were not greeted by the most friendly staff at the front desk. This is not an easy hotel to get to off the interstate, but is worth a good night stay!

The room we very nice and clean. We had two of our grandsons with us and they were very impressed with their experience. The breakfast had many items to choose from. The staff was very knowledgeable of the area and promptly gave us any directions we needed to find places we wanted to visit.

This location is at a very busy location but is tucked away as to remove you from the traffic and all the goings on but still puts you close to shopping and many, many eating places of all types of food & price. The staff is friendly and helpful and the rooms are always clean and well furnished!! The breakfast is nice and the help is pleasant and helpful!!!!

This hotel was very conveniently located near a big mall, popular restaurants and the freeway. The staff was pleasant and friendly. The beds were comfortable and the room was clean. The breakfast was fresh, tasty and plentiful. Computer room was great to check in and print airline boarding passes. 24 hour coffee bar in lobby very nice.
