Located a short walk to Congress Street, with its many bars, shops, and restaurants, this pleasant hotel offers spacious, well-appointed rooms and excellent service at a decent price. The lobby area has an antebellum feel, with tropical accents and a large breakfast room where guests can enjoy the usual Hampton Inn hot or cold morning fare. The rooms include a desk area, small refrigerator, coffee maker, and microwave. Bathrooms are roomy and have a large shower. Mine was showing its age a bit, with inexpertly applied caulking and some wear around the bottom of the shower door, but it wasn’t a major problem. The staff are very friendly and helpful (I was allowed to print some documents in the manager’s area). There’s a small outdoor pool and patio, plentiful parking, and free WiFi throughout the hotel. There’s no bar or restaurant, but a few amenities can be purchased at the desk. Adjoining the hotel is a gas station and mini-mart, but avoid the mini-mart: much of the merchandise has no labeled prices, especially the wines, and the somewhat ill-tempered cashier “looks up” items on a computer to give you the prices (I suspect he just makes them up on the spot depending on your tourist-like appearance). I “tried” prices on some wines and they were outrageous: $23 for a bottle that normally costs $8-9, and $16 for a bottle of really cheap stuff that usually goes for $5 in WalMart or elsewhere. Instead, do what I did: turn right out of the hotel on Oglethorpe (not left), and walk about three blocks to another gas station with a larger market, where everything is very reasonably priced (and labeled) and there’s a good selection: I bought half a gallon of Dasani water for $2 and bottle of Barefoot wine for $7. There’s also a walk-in refrigerated room for cold beer, wine, or champagne. Send a message to the unscrupulous owner of the mini-mart next to the hotel and don’t shop there. But do stay in the hotel.
