Reviewed 21 September 2009

I stayed at this property for one night while in the area on business. I purchased a king room with a separate sofa bed for the AAA price of $90.14 plus tax.

The property is located just off I-71 in a busy area of Grove City. There are numerous other hotels/motels nearby. The area is congested but has extensive dining options.

It is obvious that this Hampton was built in the early 1980s. It is small, has limited service features and appears a little tired. Owners have obviously spent money on trying to keep things fresh, but the property is what it is - and that is minimal at best.

Check-in was easy with all documents ready. The desk clerk was helpful and polite. My room was on the second floor and I was a little surpised that the place did not have an elevator. Sure it is only one extra floor, and I have no ability problems, but others may have and all "deluxe business rooms" are on the second floor.

The facility is very clean, but the hallways have the peculiar odor of "old motel". One of those things that you can't pin down - but you instantly know what it is. The business center is, literally, four feet deep by three feet wide. One chair and one PC fills the place up. No fitness center, small breakfast area, and no restrooms near the lobby are but some of the challenges the property faces.

The room was of the typical motel variety. It appeared that it formerly housed two double beds and had been converted to a king and a sleeper sofa. Bedding was standard Hampton, carpeting was clean and in good shape. Furnishings were a mixed bag with some newer pieces alongside furniture with ample wear.

The bathroom was spotless, updated and had standard Hampton amenities. Water flow was adequate and hot water arrived quickly.

Breakfast was typical for the chain with a blend of hot and cold foods. The breakfast area was clean and the hostess seemed to stay busy.

Check-out was a prompt affair and the clerk was polite. The final bill was accurate.

This is not a bad place for a one night stay, or even longer. It is clean and meets basic needs. But with Hamptons across the country moving to a little higher standard, this one is getting left behind. I would not be surprised if the building doesn't end up with a new name on the sign and a shiny new Hampton somewhere nearby.

Have family in area and have stayed at this hotel several times. Price is reasonable and the staff is helpful and friendly. Needed sewing kit and lint roller and they had them right at the desk (complimentary). Continental breakfast is generous and good quality. Requsted first floor and was not a problem to get it. Good location and very clean. Will stay again.

We stayed here overnight after going to a concert in Downtown Columbus. Price was great. The room and bathroom were clean. Easy to get in and out of and it is close to lots of good places to eat - some in walking distance. Only bad thing was the breakfast was not too good. The fruit wasn't ripe and the "hot" offerings were lukewarm - but we didn't stay here for the breakfast.

we had business in the area. We stayed for 5 days and there were 2 rooms for our group. The hotel is very clean and the staff is very friendly. This was our second stay at this Hampton, and we were very pleased. There is a lot to do in the area. It is very close to shopping and restaurants. The hotel breakfast was good. They do have hot choices at Hampton Inn. They offer something different each day - eggs, biscuits and gravy, some kind of breakfast pizza. They offer the typical items - danish, bagel, oatmeal, fruit, yogurt, cereals and juices. The breakfast hostess was very sweet. The breakfast area has a lot of tables and is very clean. The hotel is quiet. We will stay there again.

this is a nice clean hotel and the front desk staff is friendly. Our room was fine for the one night stay. The price of the room is some what high considering the area. It would be nice if they offered a shuttle service to and from the outlet mall which is across the street. The breakfast was just fair.

The hotel management apparently do not want Good Guy Car Show registratants at this hotel. No security and cars were damaged after an altercation with management, after they approved use of the water hose, and then threw guests out of the hotel after using the water hose. This was during the August 2007 Good Guys show in Columbus. Beware!

I stay at Hampton's and Holiday Inn Express' almost exclusively because they are usually clean and comfortable with the basic amenities such as iron/ironing board, hairdryer, upscale soaps & shampoo's, larger tv's and micro/refrig.
This Hampton Inn is not as nice as some of the others where I have stayed. It is clean and that is the most important thing in my opinion. The tv was only 25". The bathroom was a little small but other than that it had a nice king bed and sofa. A desk and chair with fair wireless service. There are a lot of nice restaurants nearby and shopping centers. I was just passing through and spent the night here. If I had to stay in that area again, I will probably check out the Drury Inn across the street from the Hampton.
