“Ahhhh, Just What I Expected”
Reviewed 27 September 2013

I mean, really... don't you want a hotel that is exactly what you're expecting? I mean, sure, once in a hundred hotel stays you'll have your expectations exceeded, but generally, you want to walk into one of the Hilton Hotels and have it be exactly what it's supposed to be. You'll have a nice person greet you, have coffee available all day long, have a big room with a huge TV, fast Wi-Fi, and thick walls (and don't forget good water pressure). And this Hampton Inn knocks it out of the park -- comfortable, quiet, all business people and even a not totally disappointing breakfast. See? Perfect.

As the title suggests, the Hampton Inn in Kalamazoo is a pretty avergae Hampton Inn. It appears to have undergone a renovation a few years ago and you'll find it up to par for cleanliness, comfort and utility. It's close to the highway, making it an ideal stopover for business travel and has a few places to eat nearby.

The only rooms with microwaves and refridgerators are the suites, but that's not uncommon in this tier of Hilton properties.

My only serious complaint is that the workout facility absolutely sucks. Two treadmills, an eliptical and medicine balls. The worst part, though, is that some genious decided to put the electrical/phone/internet closet in the room inside the workout area. Anyone in IT knows that the IT closet gets very hot, so their solution was to leave the combined door open and set a fan blowing hot air directly into the workout room. Seriously guys? There's a nearby Swat Fitness that will sell you a day pass for $9 and their facilities are great. Don't expect to get a decent workout in the sweltering 80 degree workout facility at this Hampton Inn.

Excellent Staff, Clean accommodations, nice rooms. Staff went out of their way to make sure I was taken care of. Beds and bath were cleaner than what I keep at home. Complimentary breakfast was fresh and area kept clean at all times. There was always plenty of Breakfast and no empty serving trays. There were also room trays to assist in bringing Breakfast back for your other room guest.

The room was okay and the public areas and breakfast lobby upgraded so they are really nice. However, we had a broken lock on our door (the deadbolt engaged each time the knob was turned to open the door). When we pointed this out to management, they said we were not opening it properly (we had to jam it down and jiggle it to work it correctly). The internet is also painfully slow and drops off repeatedly. It would be easy to fix both, so I am dinging them on it. On the bright side, the rooms were clean the complimentary breakfast was good.

My husband and I stayed here and we were pleasantly surprized on how welcomed you felt the minute you walked in the door! After we checked in we received a call from the front desk asking us if our room was up to our expectaions. Never had anyone do that before! It was superb! The hotel is very clean and the bedding is very nice! Also surprising was the wonderful breakfast. You will not be dissapointed staying here! We will go back. Thank you for the pleasant stay!

I would not hesitate to stay at this hotel. We found the staff friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and the furnishings were in excellent condition. The complimentary breakfast had many choices.

Overall our room was in good shape (a deluxe suite with kitchenette and couch). There was a wedding on and college orientation while we were there, but there was still enough food at breakfast. The 'takeaway' breakfast bags were better, with the apple, granola and a water. There isn't much around this hotel, and it's well away from WMU and Kalamazoo College.
