I have stayed here several times when in town on business. The hotel and staff are great.
It is a convenient location for visiting the beaches and attractions. There are 4 restaurants within walking distance and more less than a mile away.

Good room, clean and comfortable. Helpful staff. Guest laundry - big plus on long journey - thank you! But please Hampton Inns STOP putting your coffee making equipment in the bathroom/toilet. Most unhygienic! There is plenty of room on the desking in the bedroom.

This is our third out of four hotels we're staying in on our mini road trip around savannah, north and south Carolina.

As with all our previous hotels check in was very easy and all the staff have been very pleasant.
The room is very nice, ours has got two double beds in it so it's quite big. Again as with all the previous hotels the room was very clean.
The breakfast is probably the only thing that lets it down, I just don't like eating with disposable plates, knives and forks. There wasn't a huge choice but I'm sure you'll find something to start you off, it wouldn't put me off coming back.
There seems to be an early evening special where free drinks are served, we've never been back in time to find out properly.

There's quite a few nice beaches within a short drive, if you get chance you won't be disappointed.
We had breakfast this morning, then went to the beach for a few hours, then bought some sandwiches from the independence mall, which is quite close then came back to the hotel for a swim and a sun bathe, so we've had a lazy day.
This was always going to be the lazy part of our holiday as we were going to try and go to the beach more often but today has been the first nice day since we arrived, all the others started with rain then cleared up about 4 in the afternoon.

We're off again in the morning for four nights in Charlotte NC

Thank you Hampton for a nice stay.

This hotel is in a nice neighborhood close to activities and restaurants. The Historic area was west of the hotel. Our room was clean, modern, spacious with good Heat/AC, refrigerator, microwave and free WiFi. Tom at the front desk was quite helpful. They provide a free breakfast, ample parking, outside pool and cookies. In the evening they had a beer/wine reception. I would go return.

We have stayed at the Hampton Inn by UNCW while our daughter was in school, and everytime we have been in town we have stayed here. The customer service at the front desk and staff throughout the hotel is second to none. There has never been any problems with our reservations and the staff goes out of their way to make you feel at home. This hotel knows what Customer Service is and Kurt and his co-workers at the front desk set the tone as soon as you walk in. If your in the area this is the place to stay!!!
