This Hampton Inn is very well run and is always consistent. The rooms are great, the beds are comfy and the staff is very welcoming and helpful. The location is great, right off the freeway. The grounds are nicely maintained and the value is terrific.

Stayed at hotel for sister's wedding. Great staff and amenities. Rooms were simple and clean. I was able to sleep! The bed and pillows were great. One problem,the entrance door and the bathroom door were too close together.

Everything was perfect except a hair on my blanket. Food was fine for the price I paid. There were waffles and eggs. The location was perfectly 5 mins away from my NCLEX testing center. There were no toothbrushes so bring your own. Room had plenty plugs for devices..very roomy!

Room was on the ground floor, away from the freeway = quiet. The room was relatively new and clean. A/C was noisy, the bathroom had literally NO counter space. TV was fine, OK internet, and free breakfast with several choices. I would stay again/

Service was very friendly and accommodating. Great breakfast. Just had a room that had some mold and wall damage and a toilet that screeched as it filled. It was nothing real serious just not what I expect from a Hilton property.
