This hotel was a pleasure to stay in. The bed was very comfy and the room spotless. I was impressed at the variety and quality of the complimentary breakfast buffet and 24 hr snack store. There was coffee and tea available at all times as well, and delicious fresh baked complimentary cookies.

We arrived at 3:30 a.m. and this hotel staff was pleasant helpful and courteous to see that we could get to our rooms and get our needed sleep for the rest of our journey to New Hampshire. This venue is extremely clean and our stay was absolutely wonderful. The staff deserve high applauds for their polite manner and friendliness.

The breakfast offering is very good with plenty of hot items (eggs, meats, pancakes) and healthy option (fruits, oatmeal, yogurt). The Tuesday evening reception was wonderful, with chicken, veggie, qunioa, soup, and wine. There...

This was the best Hampton we have stayed in - inviting pool and exercise area, updated and very clean facility. Very nicely updated room and quiet! Staff friendly, energetic, and upbeat. We hope that other hotels can come up to the level of excellence that we experienced here.
