I have to be honest here. I've stayed at five different places now in Hampton, this one comes in probably fourth. I usually try to avoid in-season but this time I couldn't.
We literally got the last room available, ground floor just off the lobby, pretty much IN the lobby. Other than a bedroom on a moving train, the smallest room I've ever stayed in. Relatively noisy from the rooms above. Clean though. Mattress was very much sagged to a pit in the middle - that that had a lot to do with the average rating here. Bathroom was clean but difficult to use as sink had no space to put anything near it. Wireless was spotty, sometimes good, sometimes cut out and disconnect.
Location is actually very good and despite claims to the contrary we had a limited beach view.
Staff and crew was really good, very friendly and accomodating. I felt like it was overpriced for mid-week for what we had, but this was in-season and I'll admit I'm spoiled with other deals we've found. The Ashworth next door makes everybody else look like a great deal. Parking here is a little easier than some and additional spaces are available for a reasonable price, so if you're a multi-vehicle family this makes it a much better deal here than elsewhere.
Had torrential rain during our visit and the roof leaked...right into the bathroom sink. From the rust stains in the ceiling this was not a new episode, it's a problem with the deck above.
