Stayed at Hampton Inn for three nights in mid-May 2007. Stayed in a room on the third floor facing a Walmart parking lot.
The rooms are average size. I stayed in a room with two Queen beds. The bathroom is nice sized with a tub and shower, and lots of fresh towels. Comes with a "coffee maker" and hair dryer in bathroom.
The beds are very comfy and quiet. Housekeeping did a good job freshening up the room each day. Housekeeping begins at 8:00 am, so I recommend you put the "do not disturb" sign on your door at night if you want to sleep in.
The indoor pool is nice, no lifeguard needed. Used the exercise room once, decent with treadmill, bike and elliptical machine. Pool and exercise room included in price of room.
Now the bad:
Was woken up each night at 3:00 am by the Walmart parking lot sweeper. The sweeper was very loud, sounded like an airplane idling on the runway ready to taxi and take off. Even with ear plugs in the loud noise reverberated throughout the room. The sweeper circled the parking lot until 5:00 am each night. Needless to say, two hours of my night was spent listening to the noise, and I had trouble falling back to sleep after 5:00 am.
Asked the front desk clerk if anyone has ever complained about the noise of the Walmart sweeper and she said "NO." I highly doubt that but, whatever...
The "free" breakfast is so so. Had it two mornings I was there (one morning could not get to it because I slept late because of the Walmart sweeper). Breakfast is served 6:00 am - 10:00 am. If you go to breakfast after 9:00 am (as I did because of the Walmart sweeper problem), not much is left, and they don't seem to refill.
I will not stay at the Hampton Inn in Belle Vernon again mainly because of the noise problem. Would have rated it higher if it was NOT located near a Walmart.
If you are sensitive to outside deafening noise at 3:00 am each morning waking you up, I recommend you not stay at the Hampton Inn.
