“A pleasant surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2012

It's ludicrous to compare this price point against the 5-star hotels - I try to compare among similar properties.

Apparently, it's been refurbished, at least in part. Clean, quiet, eminently comfortable room and a great bargain at the price (not crowded - no next door neighbors and so cannot comment authoritatively regarding noise level.) Staff was remarkable - every one I encountered was friendly and genuinely helpful. The breakfast buffet was generous and healthy with a nice daily variation.

Absence of a restaurant was mildly aggravating, and the nearest off-property was a long walk. "Business center" featured one computer and a B/W printer - not generous, but both worked perfectly. Desk personnel happily took care of USPS mailings, FedEx pickup, and arrangements for cab to airport. Every request was handled with pleasant (at minimum) exactitude.

Bed was comfortable, air conditioner slightly noisy, TV new, shower volume a little sparse, complimentary internet was fast. In all, it was pleasant travel housing, and was well above average for this type of property, at least for the term of my visit. Not the Taj Mahal, but certainly no dive.

The meeting room was very nicely appointed, and attendant service was continually "on the mark." Hampton's regular caterer provided three outstanding luncheon meals during 3-day seminar.

This hotel was very clean. We have stayed here before and also the Holiday Inn Express next door. This hotel was almost empty and they had rooms booked all together. The wall are very thin and you can hear everything that goes on in the next room. The next time we will be going back to the Holiday Inn Express I tried to save a few bucks this time and I won't be cheep again.

This is a very old Hampton Inn located in a not so great neighborhood. I travel frequently and always use Hilton properties whenever possible so I have seen my fair share of Hamptons. It is in need of a complete refurbishment and I would recommend finding something else if you can.

The walls are thin so bring earplugs. It's also next to the 80 fwy, though I didn't hear it from where I was located (mid-way in the back). The room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was pretty good, they served a different egg and meat option everyday (e.g., scrambled eggs, omelet, sausage, biscuits n gravy) along with make-your-own waffle, cereal, etc. Midweek they even offer a free happy hour, that's a nice touch. However, I wish they had a workout room, but I guess that might be asking too much for the price...

I'm a Hilton Diamond member. I've seen a LOT of Hamptons; this one is subpar.

I'm writing this review from my phone, because the in-room WiFi is so clogged before 11pm that I can't get a wireless signal. My colleague advises she contacted the front desk and was told connectivity is only guaranteed in the Lobby. Wireless access needs upgrading. This is a business-class hotel and in room WiFi is more the norm than not.

Room amenities are basic. Standard bed, desk, and armchair. TV has very limited channels - all in Standard Def - and HBO's audio has been jacked up so all the characters on whatever I'm watching sound like they're underwater.

In room microwave's turntable wobbles and clunks around while in use.

Bathmat is gray (not white) and a bit tattered.

Overall, the experience is just subpar. It's clear this property just does the minimum to get by. Don't expect anything above the franchise basics at this Hampton.
