“Not up to Hampton standards”
Reviewed 27 February 2014

I stay at lots of Hampton Inns. I keep going back because they are usually pretty good rooms for reasonable prices. This one fell short. I had problems after check-in when they put me in a different room than what they recorded at the desk. therefore, my Internet access didn't work (you have to put in your room number) until day two (I had work to get done).

The breakfast was okay, but it was like the "People of Walmart" in there - with guests in their pajamas and similar (not Hampton's fault, except for allowing it). The bathroom facility isn't very good. No water pressure in sink and shower.

The biggest disappointment for me was the fitness center. There was one decent treadmill, and one non-working electronic stationary bike. That's it. Nothing else at all. Way below the standards that I expect from a Hampton.

Quality of bathroom not up to par for the money charged. Water flow is poor. Shower flow was impossible to get it right. Shower curtain sagged badly into the tub. Complained to the front desk but no action was taken during the remaining two days of my stay.

The rooms are beautifully painted, and the beds were so comfortable. I was pleasantly surprised to find a gorgeous and comfortable white bedspread, instead of those ugly, itchy, floral-patterned ones.

Don't hesitate or think twice when in the area about staying at The Hampton Inn Carbondale. It's nearest competitor, The Holiday Inn, can't meet the level of superior service The Hampton Inn provides.

The Jessie (Ma) Houston Prison & Prison Ministries of Rainbow PUSH Coalition make a yearly 1 month tour of the Illinois Department of Corrections Facilites each year in February to bringing 'Black History' to the 'Offenders". We have such a history here in the United States that many are not aware of. Without a History A People Perish. The Hampton Inn's in each city have been our welcoming, comfortable, well price home away from home. Good food and variety.

A tremendous Hampton facility. Excellent staff, clean facility, bright furnishings. Convenient to everything in Carbondale, especially nearby dining. Highly recommended. New breakfast items have made mornings very nice. Good coffee. It was a great family experience.

I primarily stay at Hampton Inns so have lots of room to compare. The hotel remains under renovation (wondering how long that is going to go on for?) Breakfast was good, rooms clean, beds comfortable as is standard for Hamptons. My surprises came on the following issues . . . Check in clerk wore no name tag, I was placed in a smoking room even though I booked non-smoking online (they did switch my room), the room had a lot of issues with cracking and peeling around the ceiling border, the noise from the road through the window was very, very loud~~I was able to run the fan on high which quieted most of the noise, but I found it surprising, it almost sounded as if the window was open. There was some type of sports group there from ISU which created a lot of hall noise, girls in and out of each others rooms and up and down the hallways until midnight. This is not the hotel's fault, but since this is in a college town I imagine this is a common problem. I would avoid this Hampton in the future.
