The Easton location seems to be a typical Hampton Inn, five storeys tall, half a mile from US-33 and down the street from a Walmart. Nothing exceptional here. But while I was staying there on July 22, 2011, in the middle of the great eastern heat wave, a transformer on a pole near the hotel exploded, knocking out much of the Hampton's power supply. The three staff members on duty did a wonderful job of reporting the problem, reassuring guests, checking safety hazards, identifying which rooms had working air conditioning and/or lights, moving people from stifling hot rooms into cooler ones, processing guests who decided to press on to other locations rather than staying for the night, handing out bottles of water, and smiling all the time. It can't have been easy for them, since the computer system was among the things that lost power, the workload was far higher than a typical night shift would bring, and by mid-evening they were sweating themselves as the lobby got hotter. I was really impressed with their attitude and their service.
On an unrelated note, there is a diner across the road from the Hampton, called "248" after the route number, where the food is much, much better than you'd think by looking at the building. I had a herbed salmon dinner that was just scrumptious. (It does not seem to be humanly possible to walk from the Hampton to the diner -- I had to drive, although the straight line distance is only a couple of hundred feet.)
