The property is wedged into one area with two other hotels and across Ohio 43 from a few more. Nothing made it stand out from the cheaper places on the same side.
I normally stay at what I term "high end mid hotels," such as Fairfield, hampton, Holiday Inn Express and the like. Although this hotel had the "Hampton" name it was truly not much than Super 8 or Days Inn, in quality.
The rooms had some of the richness normally found in Hampton Inns but there was lots of plainness too. The bathroom and shower, while clean did not have a "just cleaned" look. One could tell that the bed was going to be lumpy by just looking at it, in its "just made" condition. The looks were not deceiving. Lumpy is as lumpy was. The carpet was splotchy and ready to be cleaned. The biggest complaint was the thin windows. Loud trucks and motorcycles were heard all night roaring up Ohio 43. Luckily I could not hear individual traffic on I-76 but could still discern the drone. The interior hallways were boiling hot. The daughter's room was almost unbearable by clicking noises from the air conditioner.
Reception was good and the breakfast was a bright point.
Long story short - I shoulda shopped around. An okay night's sleep but not worth the rate that I paid....
