“Highly recommended - nice, clean hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2009

My family and I have stayed numerous times in this hotel. It is a home away from home. The staff is always very nice and helpful. When you arrive at the right time, there might be freshly baked cookies waiting in the lobby for you. There is always coffee in the pot, so you do feel welcome, most especially after a long car trip. The breakfast area is one of the nicest and well configured that I have seen. There is an island table alongside the middle of the room with bar seating. There are tables for 4, as well as couch seating with a coffee table. Breakfast is more than adequate, and there are hot choices - omelet, sausage with gravy usually- as well as cereals, dairy, fresh fruits, hard-boiled eggs. If you are in a hurry, they have breakfast bags to go at front desk. The rooms are always clean, spacious and nicely appointed. Mini-fridge and microwave is standard, as is hair dryer and iron. Beds are comfortable, pillows are plush and very comfy so you can be assured of a good night's rest. The only thing that might be considered a negative is there are not a lot of restaurant choices nearby. Other than that, this hotel is absolutely wonderful and the kind that, if you go there often enough, you are bound to make friends with the staff.

I stayed at the Gretna Hampton Inn with my wife and two small kids on our way back to DC. This Hampton is brand-new, well maintained, and has a very responsive staff. The management knows what they are doing and the staff are equally capable. Our room was spacious and clean, with new furniture, a large television, and an immaculate bath/shower. In our online reservation, we had requested that a crib be placed in our room. The staff had a crib ready for arrival - no need to ask twice!

Breakfast was a good experience- the room is well-designed. There's a "highboy" table that seats about 12 people in the middle and several 4-person tables and couches surrounding the central table. The most popular items were the eggs and sausage, so we had to wait a few minutes to get eggs. The attendant made them as fast as her equipment would allow.

In short, our stay at the Gretna Hampton was the perfect end to our vacation. It gave us a "soft landing" and we arrived home feeling refreshed.

Nothing beats a new hotel does it? This one was nicely decorated and very clean. The service at the front desk was very friendly, efficient and accomodating. The free breakfast buffet was great and gave you many options, not to mention the area it was served in was very spacious. I was in the hotel business for 10 years and I was impressed. We were going to stay closer to Lynchburg but found out about this hotel and I'm glad we found it.

My only complaint was that I felt the mattress was a bit too firm for my taste but I realize comfort is relative. I have definitely slept on harder mattresses over the years where you wake up with pressure points and back/neck/side pain and this was NOT the case here thankfully. I also realize that when a hotel is new the mattresses are ALWAYS firm at first and after time and use they do lose some of the firmness. Other than this - perfection!

We only stayed one night but will be back in a couple of months and we will definitely be staying here again! Good job Hampton Inn Gretna! Next time I hope to be able to explore the beautful area in which it's located.....

After looking around for a place to stay that was a reasonable distance to a triathlon my husband was participating in, I decided to book this hotel. What a great place! We asked to be able to extend our check out time so he could clean up after the event and they were gracious about that. The room was so clean and comfortable. We had a great nights sleep. The breakfast the next morning was amazing and the variety was huge. This is a gem in the middle of the country. I would stay there again.

Recently stayed at the Hampton Inn, Gretna and it was fantastic!

This hotel opened mid-September, so needless to say, it's quite clean and fresh. Rooms are large, with walk-in showers, flat screen TV's, very supportive beds, and a great facility to boot!

Front desk staff, cleaning staff and the breakfast lady were very accomodating, and it's right in line with the Hampton Inn quality. The only recommendation I have for the hotel is to put something to cover up the electronic temperature control in the room. It's on the wall across from the bed, and has a fairly bright blue and red lights, which were quite bright when all the lights were out. I'd also probably change the location of the phone and clock. The clock was on the wall side of the bed, and the phone was on the room side of the bed. No big deal, but i'd imagine most people traveling today use their cell phones more than the hotel phones anyways.

Didn't have a chance to try the hotel's wireless, as my Verizon Wireless data connection worked great.

This hotel is right off Route 29. If you're coming from Danville, it's a little hard to see and you could miss it, but if you're coming from Lynchburg it's easy to see, and is quite a sight...new hotel in a sleepy town like Gretna. Progress is great!
