The Hampton Inn in Portland, TX is a great place to stay. Superb accommodations with an excellent staff. The breakfast is awesome too! Staying here was a great break from the normal hotel because they go above and beyond to make you comfortable.

Nice clean hotel near the highway. Happy Hour and breakfast. I enjoyed my stay. The workout room was clean and had good equipment, but I did not have time to enjoy this room. The business center was clean and functioning. The room was large for one person and had a nice area to lounge next to the bed. I spent most of my time on the desk doing homework. The desk area had plenty of plugs for my computer, iPad, and phone. I only stayed one night, but I would have been comfortable staying much longer.

I had to spend 2 nights without sleep due to very loud noise from the old fridge. I had to complain 3 times, and finally with I had made up my mind to leave did they switch this fridge to that from other room. Pitty the person occupying that room. Also the water is too soft to take bath or was hands. You would be tired of scrubbing your hands and body. Did not like any of the pillows either.

Thank you so much for taking the time to provide us with your comments. We do take feed back seriously and have already taken steps necessary to address these situations.

We strive to provide clean, fresh rooms with amenities 100 percent of the time and want each guest to be satisfied with each stay. We do have a water filtering system and it does feel softer than tap water if you are not used to it.

I want to apologize for the noise your in-room refrigerator made, I personally had this unit brought to my back office so that I could determine what was wrong with it and still have it in use for the back office. Sometimes we do have to replace items in the rooms and they may be brought in from another room to accommodate a guests on short notice but our goal is to make sure you have all the amenities we offer. We don't have "suites" but do provide appliances that you get in a suite Hotel.

I personally will be discussing this incident with all of my staff and do appreciate you bringing this to my attention. This is an opportunity for training and growth.

We do value you as a guests and hope that should you be in the area again, please give us another change to provide you with everything you can expect from a Hampton property.

Appreciated the duvet covers, comfortable beds, and large rooms. Liked having eggs at breakfast. Internet service was better at the Rockport hotel than Portland, Texas. Staff very helpful, especially in getting information about severe weather conditions.

I found the staff very friendly and helpful at the Hampton Inn in Corpus Christie. They made you feel welcomed and helped you feel at home. The Happy Hours were a delight with plenty to eat and drink.

Stayed for Ingleside Renaissance Festival nearby... was very impressed with the spacious rooms. We stayed in the double bed suite with sleeper sofa--room layout was perfect for our party. As we will most likely make an annual tradition of going to the festival, we look forward to seeing your friendly staff year after year. Great breakfast spread, too--much more than coffee/tea/toast! Thanks for the BACON!!!
