“May be the best in Ottawa, but it's not saying much”
Reviewed 19 November 2006

Our group was in training in the area and had several rooms. The entire property reeked of cigarette smoke, even the non-smoking rooms. Several in our group tried to change rooms, but the hotel was booked.

Unfortunately, upon check-in, I found hair in my bed (the sheets had not been changed). While the front desk personnel was extremely helpful in meeting my request to change the sheets at 11:00pm at night, he also commented that this was the second time this week that they had this issue with housekeeping.

The hot-tub in the indoor pool area had a sign that said that they jets were broke, but that you were still welcome to use the hot-tub.

Also, the workout room had a bike and eliptical machine that did not have working electronics.

Breakfast was good....but this Hampton is not on par with the national Hampton image.

Typical Hampton Inn hotel, clean rooms, decent breakfast, free wireless - but the difference was a very friendly and responsive staff. Even though they couldn't meet all requests they handled everything very posititively. I will definately stay there again if in the area.

My wife and I stayed at the Hampton Inn in Ottawa for one night. We had a king size bed and our stay was fine. It seems to be a new hotel and our room was clean and not dated. There is a nice small pool and whirlpool. We have relatives in the area and have also stayed at the Holiday Inn Express which is right next to it. I think the pool at the HIE is better but the continental breakfast at the Hampton is better since they have more selection and even meat, at least on the weekend. This hotel is right off I-80 and there are some fast food selections and a Cracker Barrel (not my favorite) within waking distance and some more food chices down in Ottawa a few miles away. If you are looking for a drink, Shakers which is across the street form the HIE, is a local bar with a lively singles scene if you like farm girls, some of which are quite hott. In looking on the interent travel sites, they indicated that the hotel is not pet friendly but when we arrived there were people staying there with their pets. I would check with the hotel directly before you stay just to check their policy if you are bringing a pet. I give the Hampton Inn 3 stars because it is what you would expect, average but it is not a nice resort or the 4 seasons but rather a good place to spend the night if you are going to be in the area or need a place to spend the night on your way thorugh Illinois on I-80.
