“Can't beat this for the price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2012

Stayed here for four nights for a wedding. Very nice hotel. Appeared to be recently renovated. Everything you would expect from a Hampton Inn (nice breakfast including oatmeal, free wifi, good TV selection, microwave/fridge, etc.). Special mention to the hotel staff: every staff person I encountered was professional, friendly, helpful, and courteous. I was very impressed with thaat.

Funky room layout with french doors leading in to the bathroom. I was traveling alone so it was not a problem but I could see if you had a family trying to maneuver the double doors for privacy could be a problem.

Nice bonus for families with kids (or big kids): they have a water slide!! Kind of random, but a bunch of us, young and old, had fun with that!

All-in-all, you won't be disappointed. As a side note, there are a lot of restaurants across the street and down the road so you won't go hungry, either.

Room Tip: Rooms are pretty big, so unless you need the extra sleep space there's no need to ask for a suit...

OK so I have to admit Shelton Ct would NOT qualify as a resort town.

However, for a few nights to attend a class reunion (or for wedding party guests - lots there) this is the place.

We all probably have stayed at a Hampton Inn at some point and of course it's a chain so they are all created equal.....some I guess are MORE equal than others, WOW welcome to Shelton!

As soon as you enter you're greeted with VERY urban/chic decore.
It's NOT uncomfortably so, in fact it's quite the opposite - more of an ahhhhhh........

The room is spacious and they have the, "new duvet cover program", in that it's washed after each guest departs!

Also included was FREE wifi in the room, microwave and fridge.

Talk about cost efficient, this is the place!!

The next morning off for the FREE breakfast.
OK, so I'm sure it will be the usual cereal, muffin coffee/juice program.

BUT WAIT!!!!! This is the Shelton Hampton INN!! Expect MORE for FREE!

I'll skip the obivous items already mentioned and jump to the very nice.
Cut fresh fruit, premeasured cups of waffle batter for yummy fresh ones and then -
drum roll please!!!

Real cooked cheese omletts.
Just cooked sausage pattties.
Combining the two make for an awesome cooked breakfast.

Just amazing - oh and if you do have kids they will love the pool slide too.

With all of these freebies along with the best price that I found in the area - this place is a HIDDEN GEM!!

Room Tip: Maybe ask to be far from the pool. That area is sooooo funnnnn for kids, it may be an issue for you.

Our family like to use Hampton Inn for its value and the breakfast that includes at least warm eggs and hot waffles.

This property was apparently renovated in 2011. The new decor is nice chic design.
The room is awesome that includes a separate area for working table & coffee area.

The rally cool feature is a 2-story water slide in the pool area that kids would love.

We used this hotel as a one night stopover. Bed was really comfortable, room was spacious & well appointed. It had a separate seating area & the TV could swivel between the seated area & the bed. For the type of stay we made it was more than acceptable, perfect even. Free WifFi, breakfast inclusive etc. It is defnitely great value for money & I have stayed in many very good (& some bad hotels). The breakfast included muffins, bagel, cereal, orange juice, mini omelettes, youghurts, etc. a self-service affair using disposable cutlery, not gourmet but not terrible either. It is about a 20 drive from Yale so we used the opportunity to have a wander around.
So thumbs up from me!

Throughout our weeklong trip I was looking forward to staying here for our final night because I had read such positive reviews on TripAdvisor. Unfortunately, I was disappointed from beginning to end. When we pulled up late at night after a long drive and walked in, bleary-eyed, to check in, the woman at the desk was on a phone call with a guest who was having trouble logging into the internet. She didn't look up from her call to acknowledge us nor did she ask the person to hold for a second in order to tell us she would be with us soon. She just ignored us and kept talking and talking. When she finally gave us our key and we went up to the room, my heart fell. I had splurged for a "suite" with 2 doubles and a couch. It was NOT worth the splurge. It was incredibly overpriced for a basic chain hotel room with 2 beds squeezed into an awkwardly shaped space. The tiny bed I was supposed to share with my husband (the other bed was for our daughter) had a very wheezy air-conditioning unit hanging over the covers and blowing into our faces. It was so loud and uncomfortable, I chose to sleep on the lumpy pull out sofa. The bathroom was really just a triangulated cut out of the room, right next to the beds, accessed by two doors. The layout was strange and uncomfortable. The breakfast was very basic. The location is nothing special except if you want to do suburban shopping at Walmart. I would not stay here again.

My extended family all stayed here for a memorial service for our mother/grandmother/great grandmother. Beautiful hotel. Great staff. Clean rooms. Good breakfast. Very spacious and clean lobby/sitting area. Best hotel pool ever (and I have been to many with my small children). Lots of shopping and dining nearby. Would go there again in a heartbeat. Thanks for the nice visit to the area. Great place. Kudos.
