Typical Hampton Inn. I was there for business.
The entrance off the main road was different in that it is shared by other hotels but I found it easy enough.
Currently under renovation but that did not bother me since it was not on the floor I stayed. I believe they are renovating the bathrooms. It may have been the reason I was not able to upgrade since a number of rooms on the top floor were affected (HH Diamond).
The staff I did get to meet were very nice. I did not spend too much time in the lobby area.
The room and other areas I did go to were clean. The room was a little noisy. It was a combination of the refrigerator, heating unit and outside noise that disturbed my sleep during the night but not too much. I also did not like the layout of the room. I like being able to watch TV and work at the same time. The way the desk area was positioned made me turn around to be able to see the TV. They did have a lap desk but I needed more room to work / write on so I was at the desk most of the time.
I did use the Fitness Center. There are 2 treadmills, a recumbent bike and an ellipse. I used the ellipse and even though I was able to get my exercise all of the controls did not function correctly.
There were a few places to eat close by but not too many (I liked the Mexican restaurant Salsitas). However, Highway 76 is very close and you can get to other places pretty quickly.
If in the area I would visit this Hampton Inn again.
