Stayed here on a short visit but service was excellent; hotel was spotless. They do not have evening meals on site but Margie's Diner was a short walk and the teenagers could get a quick dinner meal and we never had to - those kids are always hungry!

The hotel was clean, the staff was helpful, the room was spacious, and the breakfast was hot; more importantly to me was the ability to check in online ahead of time and simply pick up my keys at the front desk. Time was of the essence on this trip, and that little detail made all the difference to us. Thanks...

Clean and awesome staff - from front desk to maintenance. Would definitely stay here again anytime we are in town! The breakfast was absolutely delicious - usually there's a ridiculous line/wait but it was well set up and there was plenty of seating. Highly recommend this hotel!

Other than this Hampton Inn being a much higher price than I'm used to paying at Hamptons, it was a nice stay. We like the Hampton inn experience as we typically take long trips that alternate camping and hotels. Laundry, pool, self serve breakfast, clean showers and rooms, safe environments and respectful staff. We did have to ask for a...

Expected clean; not sure it was. Desk staff and kitchen staff were positive and service was a priority to them. Room not so great; carpet vacuumed? Question the standard of cleanliness. Mattresses were very uncomfortable. In an accessible room - like we had the worse mattresses; too high to be able to get out of wheel chair with ease. Bathroom...
