Really fail to understand the negative reviews of this small Hampton Inn (40 + rooms). We stayed for two nights and were very impressed both by the quality of service and the room rate. We booked directly through the Hampton Inn web site. Yes, there are rooms whose windows are obstructed by the roof of the entrance canopy which does look like a bit of an architectural after thought. However, our request for a different room was immediately accommodated and we moved to the rear of the property overlooking the car park. This side of the hotel in very quiet with no traffic noise whatsoever. We had twin queen size beds in a large room with a very well appointed bathroom. Every thing was exceptionally clean and the towels etc were of superior quality. The breakfast was more than adequate and there were plentiful supplies of coffee, tea and fruit juices available all day in the lobby. The pool is small but during our stay we saw no one using it. We could have had it to ourselves. The internet is free and there is a computer and printer in the lobby for the use of guests. All the staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful.
The hotel is 5 minutes by car to the beach and convenient for access to the University.
We have used Hampton Inns on many occasions in the past and would rate this as one of the best we have stayed in.
