Reviewed 18 February 2012

A friend and I stayed at the Hampton Inn - Meriden for an annual bowling tournament last weekend (mid-February). In previous years, other hotels in the area have provided less than mediocre service: charges for everything under the sun, less-than-clean rooms, etc. Therefore, the Hampton Inn was a truly a very pleasant surprise: reasonably priced accommodations with a warm decor; spotlessly clean rooms; a well-stocked breakfast room; no extra charges for wi-fi or late check-out; and most importantly, a friendly staff that was genuinely eager to make our stay wonderful.

Quite unusual was the conversation on the ride home: “Wow, this year’s hotel was great. The staff was so nice.” Need I say any more?

We were at this hotel as part of a bowling tournament, and not only was the room immaculate, stylish and comfortable, but the breakfast was lovely, and the staff was uniformly friendly and highly accomodating. It was a convenient and relaxing stay. Nice job, guys - we hope to be there again next February! Shout out to Kim - who removed her work gloves to shake my hand!! :-)

While the rooms were a bit on the small side, they were clean and cozy. Staff was extremely friendly and very accomodating. Great value for the money...I am definitely going to stay there next year for my event!

We stayed here this past weekend and were so happy this place was chosen as the host hotel for the event. All the hotel staff were the friendliest I have ever encountered and checked on us during our stay to make sure we were happy. Warm cookies on the desk for us greeted us when checked in! The room we had was one of the cleanest we have stayed. The free wi-fi was also faster than some hotels that charge. And the good morning breakfast was one of the best we have had in a long time. Definitly recommned this hotel and would stay there again!

Thanks so much for writing a review about your stay. The warm cookies are the best aren't they? I always get hungry when I smell them in the lobby. It is truly a pleasure to hear from our guests especially when they have a great experience like you. We hope to welcome you back soon!

My best,

I stayed at the hotel for a nearby bowling tournament and I couldn't say anything negative about the accommodations or the staff. The rooms were clean, well-maintained and updated. The staff was always absolutely courteous and responsive. I'd stay there again in a heartbeat.

We stayed here for a tournament and we were so happy they chose this hotel. The checkin in was superfast and the reception staff were the friendliest I have ever encountered. They even had warm cookies on the desk for us! The room we had 231 was spotless and even nicer than some 5* hotels we have stayed at. The free wi-fi was also faster than some hotel where we have had to pay for it!

The morning breakfast was plentyful and fresh and the offering of the 24 hr coffee, tea and hot choclate in the lobby was welcomed!!

We cannot wait to stay there again next year..if I could rate this proprty more than 5* I would
