Thank you for staying with us at our establishment. We are sorry that so many inconveniences occurred during your stay, however I do feel the need to let you know that we do have a meat offering on our breakfast bar every morning, as this is a Hilton requirement. We do write down what is served each morning to avoid repeating the next day and I did check your stay dates to verify this. We do not allow large vehicles to park in our main parking lot. Sometimes, yes, they will park in the lot to get checked in and settled, but our front desk staff does make sure they are moved in a timely fashion. If this was not the case, I truly do apologize. As far as the cookies, Hilton has made these optional with our Hampton Inn brand. Now, we do still try to put them out often, but sometimes our desk clerks do get a little busy and don't think to do this. But, usually at a guest request, they will go ahead and take care of that! We hope that this has not give you a negative opinion of our hotel and we look forward to your return!

Very nice and very clean hotel. We only stayed one night but i would recommend this hotel to anyone. The bed was comfortable and i could tell they had washed the comforter which is a huge plus. Breakfast was very nice with a large selection. Also staff was very welcoming and friendly. We would stay here again in the future.

I have stayed here several times while attending a 2-day horse show in nearby Chatham. This Inn is easily located right off the highway. The Inn is always impeccably clean. We have always enjoyed the wonderful complimentary breakfast which serves everything from hot oatmeal, bagels, yogurt, waffles, etc.

The Hampton Inn in Gretna, VA is a mixed bag. The price is right. The fitness center is great. The service is OK (some efficient, some really slow). However there are two areas that really make your stay here really suffer. First of all, the walls are extremely thin, so you can hear everything in the rooms next door. I could hear my neighbor snoring all night. I heard the person above me every time they moved. Every footstep…. This is not a place I would ever stay again if I did not have to, but the choices are few and far between. When you can't get a good night's sleep, it is really is not worth staying here. The free breakfast could use some Starbucks coffee and some fresh fruit. The breakfast is very basic. However, the fitness center was great.

Thank you for choosing the Hampton Inn Gretna/Altavista/Chatham as your place of lodging. I apologize that you were not throughly impressed with your stay. I am sorry that you was not able to get a good night's sleep. You are absolutely right, this can definitely make for a long day and is not satisfactory. When it comes to our breakfast, we do have certain items that Hilton requires us to have daily and this cannot be changed by individual hotels. We do have fresh fruit served every day as this is something that is part of our options, along with 50+ other items. We do have many foods and beverages to choose from ranging from cereals, yogurts, fresh bread and danishes, belgian waffles, a "hot" item that varies from day to day, as well as coffee, tea and many juice options. As I said, we do apologize that your stay was not satisfactory, but we hope that this will not be the case the next time you are in our area. We look forward to your return!

There was a mass entrance of horse show girls and moms as I came into the hotel. The woman at the desk was overwhelmed but took a minute to call for help for me. Also offered me a snack later in the evening for the extra 10 minutes that I waited. My room was clean with white Duvet ,sheets ,pillows and towels.Everything was well appointed and outside offered a nice area to walk my dog complete with bags. i would go back anytime if I was local to the hotel.

Thank you for being so understanding of the situation. It can be very overwhelming when we have a full house and sometimes things can progress at slower speed than normal.

We are glad that you enjoyed your stay here at our establishment. We look forward to your return!

We were welcomed by a dear sweet lady at the desk. Sorry, I forgot to get her name. She was very helpful, and the room was nothing short of great. Can't say enough nice about the location. The breakfast hostess also was a delightful person. Just be sure to have dinner before you come; there are not good places nearby at least that I could find.
