“Clean, Neat, Easy to Find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

I found this hotel to be very clean and orderly. My room, King suite was very nice. The refrigerator kept everything cold. The TV and remote worked fine. I loved the desk area, it was great for charging all of the electronics. One side of the bed had electrical outlets and USB ports but the other side didn't. It would have been nice to have them on both sides since we both had phones and computers to use while we were lying on bed watching TV. The breakfast was good and hearty. On Sunday we couldn't have used a better protein than sausage gravy. Bacon, sausage or ham would have been nice. Every afternoon they have fresh popcorn in the lobby. I LOVED that. We didn't use the indoor pool but it looked very clean. The exercise room was very neat and comfortable. When we came back late one night we did have trouble finding a place to park. It was in walking distance to a mall and a few dining places. We walked to the Civic Center for an event with no problems. The digital thermostat on the wall was great, it was so much easier to control the temperature in the room.

Room Tip: The rooms towards the back of the hotel are quieter and have a better view.

I like staying at Hampton Inns because the facilities are always clean and the staff is friendly. I love the breakfast bar which allows me to have a meal without having to dine out. I have chosen Hampton Inn for other family members when they are traveling or visiting me in Indianapolis.

We stayed here ironically during the same weekend the Antique Roadshow was in town, so the hotel was packed with attendees for that event. The rooms have been nicely upgraded, except for the bathrooms. There is no fan in the bathroom to avoid fogging up the mirror, and the hairdryers are some of the smallest, least powerful I have encountered. The hotel is motorcycle friendly - they let us park our bikes under the covered entryway instead of in an uncovered parking spot. The front desk staff at night is friendly, as well as the morning breakfast crew. The breakfast is standard Hampton Inn (waffle maker, eggs, cereal, bagels, etc.) and there is no evening happy hour. The location is central to the major highways and the river. There aren't any nearby restaurants (within walking distance) that are open past 10pm so if you arrive late your only option is pizza delivery (which was not very good). Be sure to ask for a room that isn't facing the highway since you hear highway noise all night long no matter where you are, but at least if you're facing away from it the sound will be somewhat minimized.

Room Tip: As noted above, ask for a room away from the highway as there is constant traffic even into the wee...

Found the help VERY friendly and anxious to please guests. Shuttle service excellent. Breakfast could use some meats with the eggs. TV could use some movie channels. Over all this is a good place to stay

Attended US Marine Corps League national convention. This property was located close to host hotel and provided excellent shuttle service to the host hotel. The room was adequate, but was a little small compared to some Hampton Inn rooms. The room was clean and well furnished. However, it did not have a refrigerator, which would have been helpful.

Nice place and have stayed many times over the years but problem after problem this time... reservation wrong, sewage smell in room, door lock broken, breakfast problems with broken equipment and a staff that could not wait to shut it down. Will go here again but expect these problems fixed.

As usual, this Hampton Inn did not disappoint. The staff were very friendly and the accommodations excellent as usual. I love Hampton's breakfast, especially the sausage. As far as the room goes, the pillows are nice, nice, nice, and I am so glad we have the modern TV's now.

Room Tip: I like lower level rooms near the swimming pool, but that's just a personal preference.
