Loved loved loved this hotel. I am a Hilton Honors member and try to stay at Hampton Inns when I can, because they almost always give me what I need: peace and quiet, a decent breakfast, free wifi, indoor pool/ whirlpool, exercise room, a price that won't break my wallet. This Hampton Inn hit it out of the park.

Five-star service to start. The desk clerk was so kind and helpful, even going so far as to print out some travel info for me. The room was delightful: clean, perfectly appointed, quiet. The pool area was well lit and the exercise room was the best I've seen in ages: elliptical, recumbent bike, treadmill, a great weight selection, mats, exercise balls, all in tip-top shape.

Wifi was speedy. Breakfast was delicious, with several hot and cold items,a good selection of fresh fruits and juices, and of course all the coffee, tea or hot chocolate you could want.

The location is perfect. Right off Route 80, but set far enough off the main road for peace and quiet. There are many restaurants nearby, and staff is happy to recommend a local place if you want to get away from standard highway fare.

I absolutely loved my experience here and hope to stay again some time.

I had stayed at this hotel some years ago and based on that stay, I decided to book again. I was not disappointed. Since my last stay, the hotel has upgraded. It had a very clean, fresh look. The staff was very professional. Staff aware of HHonors status and prepared for my arrival. Room was very clean and fresh. There is quite a bit of traffic in the area of this hotel, but it is easy in and out. Also very quiet. Another great Hampton Inn stay for me!

This motel is a convenient place to stop on our vacation trips. We always stop here on our way to Maryland, or heading towards Florida. It is close to the freeway and just a short drive to some good restaurants. The rooms of always been clean and the staff friendly and helpful. The handicap accessible room has an open frame(8) under the bed. That is a feature very hard to find and a necessity for me as I use ahoyer lift to get transferred from my wheelchair into the bed. Without this feature I could not stay here.

The deck clerk was very nice at check-in. She made us feel right at home. Check out the Starved Rock Park and if the first time do the tour first. Then check out down town Ottawa. If you are scout leaders 2 must see things: 1.Scout museum in town is good and only 3 dollars. 2.Check out grave site of William Boyd (He started boy scouts in USA) I think we are going to bring the scout troop back to stay.

My husband and I recently spent a weekend at the hotel. Everything look very nice on arrival. The washcloths were even folded into little flower petals. But, once we started using the shower we were shocked. My husband used the safety rail on the wall and it pulled away at the bottom. It looked as if they had only used caulk to attach it to the wall. When it pulled away, really black awful looking water drained out of it all over the tub. Then when he got out of the shower, the curtain rod moved all over the place. It too was only connected with glue or caulk. As you walked around the bathroom you could hear the tile moving. It was also loose and not put down properly. I think the cleaning staff is really doing a good job, but whoever does their repair work needs to go back to school.

This hotel was very clean. Refrigerator was actually COLD where in most hotels they're not. Bed was comfortable. Location had easy access. Would stay here again. Noise level from other guests was non-audible.

There are three hotels at approximately the same level at this intersection, the Hampton, a Marriott Fairfield, and a Holiday Inn Express. The Fairfield is relatively new but the other two were recently remodeled. We visit Ottawa quite often and have stayed at all three. While all three are acceptable, the Hampton offers somewhat better quality in terms of room furnishings, breakfast, etc. The pool, lobby, parking, etc. are fine and the hotel in general felt new, clean, and fresh since the remodel. The Hampton is tucked in a bit behind a Cracker Barrel and the H.I. The H.I. can be slightly noisier than the other two with local traffic to a nearby Walmart and other stores and some rooms at the Fairfield get some road noise from I80 - but not much. We prefer the Hampton unless the Fairfield or H.I. offer a decently better price, which is seldom. A nearby Super 8 will likely save you $20-30 per night. It is one of the better Super 8s so it is not a serious problem if the others are unavailable, but it is a definite step down in quality. The nearby Econo Lodge was a BIG step down; haven't stayed there in years and don't intend to do so.
