This place was seriously amazing. We pulled up to this small hotel right off the freeway (as most of the major ones are in Richfield) and had no clue what to expect. As soon as we walked in we got a great feel for the place: our room was quite large with a beautiful big window which let in plenty of outside light as well as a squeaky clean bathroom and a strong, fully functioning, shower head (not one of the usual wimpy hotel showers), and big comfy beds. The room was extremely comfortable and reasonably sized but, most of the all, the beds were fantastic.
As for the facilities, I'm normally not a fan of indoor swimming pools but this one was an exception with its large windows surrounding the facility and a high standard of cleanliness. The whole place had none of that nasty humid chlorine smell that I expect from indoor pools. The hot tub also upheld the same standards.
Though the workout room on the first floor was pretty small and basic, all of the machines were brand new and there was enough room for me to stretch without feeling cramped. There was also free tea and coffee in the lobby which was a great perk throughout the day.
There was a small laundry room on the second floor with one washer, one dryer, and a soap dispenser with different varieties to choose from. As we'd been touring the national parks for a few weeks at that time, we decided that risking the laundry facilities would really help to decrease the dirty clothes pile and provide for the rest of the trip. Surprisingly, it was only a dollar to run each machine and everything, again, was really clean and easy to use.
As for food, there isn't much choice aside from fast food and a big sign for Wingers next door so we went a few freeway exits down to Frontier Village Restaurant which had pretty good food with decent prices and was only a 5 minute drive down the freeway (which is right next to the hotel but which you would never know was there if you couldn't see it).
I've never stayed in a Hampton Inn before but now i'll be on the lookout for one the next time I have to stay overnight in a hotel. I hope each is as wonderful as the Richfield branch. I WILL ABSOLUTELY BE BACK
