First off, this is my third time staying here in roughly 2 years, so before I get into details on my stay I definitely see it as a place worth staying when in the area. With that said, Somerset lodging options consist of primarily "dumpy" hotels/motels other than the Hampton Inn and maybe one or two other places.
On all 3 stays I've had here, I'd rank it anywhere between 3 and 4.....out of a possible 5. Each stay was fairly consistent with similar goods and bads each time. Front desk staff were friendly and efficient. They seemed to have no problem striking up conversation with customers and seemed down to earth. The rest of the staff I encountered were not so friendly.
Our room itself was a decent size and for the price we paid we feel like we got a solid deal for the peak of the summer season. Cleanliness wise the room was in fair shape. I did notice a solid accumulation of dust above the fridge and microwave. The bathroom seemed clean with plenty of towels on hand. The bed (KING) was huge and comfortable.
On the not so clean side were the hallways which were in serious need of vacuuming and the elevator which needed some mopping and wiping down badly.
The lobby area itself is small for a Hampton Inn and I knew it was setting up for trouble come morning. The hotel was booked up pretty well and the free breakfast was a madhouse with nowhere near enough seating for all guests. There were people eating on the floor in the lobby, near the elevators, etc. I just worked my way through the crowds, grabbed some food and went back to my room. The breakfast area/floor was messy with the people slopping food and beverage all over the place. This hotel really needs to consider more space for its guests otherwise mornings are often going to be chaotic like this. Also, I'm still trying to figure out the point of an outdoor pool in Somerset, PA? I bet it is usable 3 months out of a year...at most.
Anyway, if you can look past the chaos at breakfast and some cleanliness issues (primarily outside of your room), then you'll have no problem staying here. This definitely ranks as one of my least favorite Hamptons I stay at, but it's good enough given what few options there really are in the area.
