If you understand that Hampton Inns are the budget option from Hilton then you should know what to expect here. As the brand is new to the UK, I think some people are expecting too much when seeing the Hilton name. Think along the lines of Premier Inn for a comparable brand.
I had a one night stay here at the start of March 2014 for 50GBP. I chose the property for the proximity to East Croydon railway station as you can see the hotel from the platforms! Leave the station by the new exit towards the London end of the platforms, walk down to the end of the path and turn right. You will see the hotel along on your left.
I was checked in quickly and my Hilton Gold status was recognised with complimentary water and chocolate bar. However I know others who have received either nothing or just water so not sure what the official policy is here.
My room was clean and comfortable and free WiFi a bonus over a certain purple coloured hotel nearby!
As others have noted, the rooms are not huge but that's not what I would expect from a budget brand. I had an undisturbed nights sleep.
Breakfast is included in all rates (again a bonus over the nearby chain) and was reasonable with hot and cold buffet selection. The breakfast area does get busy but trays are provided if you wish to take breakfast back to your room.
All in all a good stay and I will happily return in the future.
