My credit card number was stolen by one of the employees. Charges were made beginning the day I checked in and continued until the day I checked out. I only noticed this after I got back home, so please be careful.

This is a serious accusation and what I can't understand is why the hotel wasn't contacted and the General Manager hadn't been made aware that this occurred? This review was left yesterday, which was a week after your checkout date, with something this serious, we should have been notified immediate upon your discovery of this so we could have tried to help you get to the bottom of it. I can assure you that we have an honest staff here at our establishment and have never had an incident such as this happen before. Now, I can explain that if you use a debit card, a hold is placed for incidentals that will show up on your statement, but this is only an authorization, no charges have been made for this. This is something that automatically happens at check in when your card is swiped. This is only 25%, but this is normally lifted within 5 business days of your departure. I'm baffled that if this case is being investigated why no one has contacted the hotel to speak to management and try and resolve it? We'd be more than happy speak with you on this matter, so please feel free to contact managment.

Good location. Closest we could get to Martinsville for the race. About hour drive to track. Always enjoy staying at the Hampton Inn whenever we can. Great value although we paid a premium for the race weekend. Always a great free breakfast. Watch out for the deer driving back in the dark!!!

Bugs in room and stairways. Bathroom was not clean. The air conditioner/heat unit blew on me the whole night and was extremely loud. Constant slamming of doors. Big truck parkerd in front of lobby at 2 am and remained there all night. Will never return to this inn.

This Hampton Inn is in Gretna, not major city. I wish the rates were lower. I stay there once a month. Many tmes for just one night. It is a remote area with very little restaraunts. The staff is always very friendly and helpful. I stay there once a month and it's consistently good service.

The location of the Motel is perfect for me..It is located between my brother and sister who live in Gretna..The motel is easy to get to..The rooms were very clean, the beds were clean and comfortable. The loby is great to meet friends and have a cup of coffee.. All of the workers were very friendly and polite.

Clean, well equipment and comfortable room and hotel. Staff was very helpful when asked for places to eat. They were always there to help if needed. The breakfast was nice. We enjoyed our stay and will stay there again in 2014.

The room was very clean and spacious. I recommend you reserve one with 2 queen beds instead of the one with just a king. Our two queen's room also had a refrigerator which apparently the one king does not based on both, what another couple told us, and the room descriptions on their web site. This is the second Hampton we have stayed at (the other Myrtle Beach - I never got around to reviewing it) where the free breakfast was disappointing. The scrambled (?) eggs were like egg pellets and fairly tasteless. And again there was NO BACON nor SAUSAGE. What they had was something described as sausage and gravy that I think they just waved some sausage over the gravy and a few bits of sausage fell in. The waffle maker worked well and the waffles were quite good. There were lots of varieties of good coffee, the pastries were decent and you could make toast and there was oatmeal. All in all a very nice, clean place to stay, with good service, if the breakfast is not a high priority. Oh and apparently because Gretna is so far from civilization, they can't get U.S.A. Today paper delivered out there - not a show stopper for me since the internet connection worked fine.

Room Tip: If you want a refrigerator in the room, get the room with 2 queen beds. And oops, I should not have...
