Two family members and I stayed here the night before we ran the Hartford Half Marathon. We needed a cot for the room - instead, they gave us a free upgrade to a suite. The room was very clean and quiet, and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We all got a great nights sleep. The price was right and it included breakfast which was a plus. If we do this run again, we'll definitely stay here.

Have stayed at the Hampton Inn in nearby Manchester CT several times, and didn't even know the East Hartford one existed. A very pleasant surprise. Location is quiet -- away from the Buckland Hills shopping hoopla, but just a short drive if you want a little retail therapy or wider restaurant choices.
We did have a problem in our third floor room due to a noisy exterior A/C (on the roof?), but that was pleasantly and satisfactorily resolved by the front desk staff.
An enlightening observation: as I was walking through the lobby sitting area, I just happened to see a staff person thoroughly cleaning the public telephone located there. Maybe that's standard service, but I was very favorably impressed.

Room Tip: You might want to avoid the third floor rooms due to exterior A/C noise.

Very easy to find right off of route 84. We enjoyed a quiet night even though we arrived late. The breakfast was good and the staff was very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this to anyone, regardless of family, couple or solo.

Just across the river from downtown this is a convenient location, affordable and stafff is knowledgable and helpful in every way. As a regular traveller that frequents Hampton Inns this one has all the expected Hampton Inn features. I particularly like the shape and convience of the workstation/desk in the room. Outlet right there, elevation and shape comfortable to work at.

Hotel was convenient to highway and city, easy to get to and easy to get around the area. Hotel was very clean and comfortable. Bathroom was nice and big. Staff was very pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was fine, not gourmet but definitely adequate and enough choices. Overall good value.

The staff at this hotel were very friendly and helpful! The room was super clean and the beds were pretty comfortable. The only thing that I was shocked and disappointed about was that there was no fridge in the room. Also , I guess a family was renting a room to hold a birthday party for their son. There must have been over 10 boys under 11 with some adults in the eating area where my family and I were quietly enjoying the food we ordered in. This large group of boys were also in the small, loud pool area. Needless to say, we did not use the pool at that moment. LOL.

I'm sure the above situation is not the norm (just a bummer it happened when we were there) so if you're looking for a clean and comfy place to stay with amazing staff...this is it.

On another note...breakfast was wonderful as always with Hampton Inn's. Round the clock coffee and hot cocoa are a nice touch at these hotels.

Oh...and be sure to bring yourself a cooler for your room! ;) I would have given this an "EXCELLENT" review if it weren't for the lack of fridge and the party going on.
