We stayed at this location to be close to a sporting event with a very early start.
The location was easily found by my GPS and the hotel in a commercial / residential area on I-10 but set back a bit, so does we did not experience freeway or other surrounding noise inside the hotel. There is plenty of parking near the hotel. Check in was quick and easy. There is a nicely decorated, moderate sized inviting lobby with a small front desk and nicely appointed common area. (Breakfast area) They have coffee and tea available 24 hours a day.
The hotel has a small guest laundry. (Coin operated) as well as a small gym with few pieces of cardio equipment, weight equipment, etc. There is outdoor pool and sunning area. They have a nice business center with two computers and a printer/scanner. The hotel has free internet access for guests and we found it to be speedy for hotel service.
The rooms are nicely decorated roomy, and appear to be recently remodeled. The beds are typical Hampton Cloud 9 (nice beds) but have old 27" CRT TV's, but plenty of channels. The climate control works well and you can leave the blower motor on for white noise while the climate control is still functioning. Bathrooms are well equipped with plenty of storage space but a tiny amount of counter space. Our room had a microwave and fridge. The room was quiet and had no noise from outdoors.
The area has many types of dining options nearby. (IHOP next door)
The breakfast area had plenty of seating in the morning and they were even accommodating enough to start breakfast at 5am due to the early sporting event starting nearby. Typical Hampton breakfast. The day we stayed it was omlettes, sausage, biscuits, pastries, cereal, juices, coffee, etc. They did not have the "on the run bags: with an apple, muffin, cereal bar, water, and mints as it was the weekend but they do have these available on weekdays. Checkout was easy.
We would absolutely recommend this location and would stay here again if we needed to stay in the area. The staff was always very friendly and always asked if we needed anything. Room rate was very reasonable given the area. Given the mixed review's I was unsure what to expect but was very happy with this location.
