This is an older Hampton, but it is still in good condition and met most of my expectations for a property of this type. The room was clean, breakfast was standard for a Hampton, and it’s a pretty nice place overall. However, there are some things that prevent me from giving a review any better than average. First, the A/C in my room mysteriously stopped working overnight during my first night. The thermostat on the wall simply went dead and the A/C stopped. I told the housekeeping and they overrode the system from on the unit for the last two days. That helped considering it was mid-July and temperatures were over 90 for my entire stay. But, my biggest beef regards the excessive phone fees that they are charging. When I got my bill at checkout, I found that they charged me $2.05 per call for using the room phone to make 1-800 number calls. I've been to other hotels that might charge between 25 cents and $1 per call, but it is always clearly spelled out ahead of time. I saw nothing whatsoever about this--nothing written on the phone or told to me at the front desk. All Hamptons that I have been to prior had free local and 1-800 calling. And at $2.05 a pop, they must be making a profit of about $2.00.
I’d recommend the place to others because there are so many bad places, and Hampton is never one of them. But, for the most part, it is simply an average hotel.
