There's nothing blatantly wrong with this hotel... I've just stayed in many newer Hamptons that make this one seem outdated.
My room was mostly clean (the comforter really needed to be washed). The bed was excellent, and the shower was good, but the A/C was old and made rattling noises.
I didn't like the room layout -- I like to use my laptop at a desk or table where I can see the TV. That wasn't possible in this room, I had to sit on the couch to see the TV. The wireless internet service was very good.
Breakfast was typical for Hampton -- biscuits and gravy, muffins, toast, etc. The hotel location is very good, close to many restaurants but far enough from the highway to be very quiet.
If you can afford the rate difference, I'd strongly recommend the Embassy Suites over the Hampton. Lubbock's Embassy is one of the nicest in the chain.
