We stayed here for a weekend retreat. This location was located conveniently to the interstate, tucked back in behind a couple of other hotels.
We arrived on a Thursday evening, late, and I reserved a King Suite. We were in room 323, which is all the way at the far end of the hallway, the other end of the hotel, next to an elevator that thoughtfully only runs between 7 AM and 9 PM. The room was adequate for our needs. Having stayed at a Hampton Inn before the fresh duvets are very nice because you know they've been freshly washed. However, our duvet every night was verrrry lumpy - like our daughter's stuffed animals were under every square. It was kind of funny, but the covers were definitely lumpy. The room itself is showing a little sign of wear - chips in the tub, a couple of wall marks in the bathroom and the dresser drove us batty. Top drawer in bedroom would not close if there were clothes in it. We'd close it, and it would open itself, over and over again. Also kind of funny.
Living/kitchen was very nice. If I had one request in the kitchen it would be to turn the fridge/freezer doors to the other side. They opened from the wall and were hard to get into.
Breakfast was pretty standard fare. Normal Hampton Inn offerings, which were just fine. I really like the big counter/table in the lounge area for just chilling out.
I would like to see the manager's receptions offered on days OTHER than Tuesday and Wednesday. And one night there were cookies at 5:30 (Friday night) but the other nights there weren't - which I didn't understand why.
Also want to add there was a huge wedding there that weekend and they didn't bother/interfere with us a bit. The management on this hotel is good. Would stay again.
