When we checked in, the young man at the front desk was very polite and efficient. When my husband & I walk into the lobby, it is as if we walking into a family's home. Very inviting! Your morning breakfast was excellent. Barbara keeps the eating area extremely tidy. She keeps the food fresh and warm. She greets everyone and...

This is a typical Hampton Inn, and it has the amenities you'd expect: free parking, wifi, little pool, small workout room with a few treadmills, breakfast. This is a consistent chain and did not disappoint. We picked this location because we wanted to visit Tucker Wildlife Sanctuary, and it was convenient. We attempted another visit earlier in the month, but...

Not friendly staff, poor service, the management tried to cut costs in every single corner. The fan in the bathroom was very laud and we could not turn it off. The cleaning people would not put new soap or shampoo in the room, so every morning we had to ask for it. The people serving breakfast would not refill the...

Early check out - due to some issues with work I had to check out of my hotel room five days early. I pre-paid for my room a month and advance and they would not refund for the days I was not staying at the hotel.

Consistently good. Very predicatlble. Reasonably priced for quality. There is a Hampton at most of our travel destinations. We always look for a Hampton and we usually find one near our route or ourdestination.

This hotel is in the middle of nowhere. I originally booked it with Hilton Honors points because it looked to be near Newport Beach. The beach ended up being 45 min away. The hotel room itself was smaller than most and the bathroom was straight outta Motel 6. The only thing it had going for it was the shower head....

Clean rooms, comfortable beds, good breakfast and other amenities. Problem is the staff and their lack of ability to accurately book a room for a medium size group that had a block of rooms there. Two families didn't get their room booked when one would not think it that difficult to do. Also they couldn't figure out how to split...
