The sign outside said 'Hampton Inn.' The sign on top of the hotel said 'Hampton Inn.' And, no one at the front desk told us that this was not a Hampton Inn. In fact the only reason that I learned that this was not a Hampton is that I received an email receipt from Elba Inn the next morning. I... More

This is no longer a Hampton Inn though still retains the signage. I would have liked to give this hotel at least a rating of 4 given we had a spotless clean room, lovely decor, and a very quiet restful night's sleep. The staff were also very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was adequate. So many of the previous complaints... More

Upon check-in, I was disappointed because the check-in staff advised that they were privately owned and did not accept or give points for Hampton Inn stays. I don't know how they could advertise as "Hampton Inn" if they don't, but that was what she said. Regardless, it was the only hotel in town that we could find so we had... More

But then again, it could have been a whole lot better. I guess when you're the only hotel in town you can settle for mediocrity. The staff was a bit less than personable. But not exactly unfriendly. The beds on the other hand. ... Well let's just say, I'll be glad to get back to the pull out sofa bed... More

I am still waiting for a refund for the awful service and lack of knowledge that animals are now permitted since this is no longer a HAMPTION INN. I have been calling the manager since March and she keeps patronizing me by saying that she will look into it. I will continue to call until it is processed. The Elba... More

It was great when Hampton Inn, but if the owners don't pay the franchise tax then Hampton Inn drops you. Why they still have that sign up is beyond me. I was there not long after it became Elba Inn and they didn't have any WIFI and no telephone service. Almost a year later and it's going downhill. I observed... More

According to employees, this is no longer owned and operated by Hampton Inn even though the name remains. I have been here before and it was very good to excellent; but, not this time. I couldn't find my toothbrush in my overnight bag and asked for one at the desk. They didn't have any. Fortunately, after unloading everything in the... More

Stay away from this property! No longer a Hampton Inn, losing their franchise speaks volumes! Wireless doesn't work in room, yogurt put out past expiration date out for breakfast, staff unaccommodating and not friendly. Bugs seen in hallway and property has been allowed to run down.

This hotel is no longer Hampton Inn. It's Elba Inn and we stayed here with my son's swim team.

I stay here once or twice a year for business and was a little concerned when the hotel lost its affiliation as a Hampton Inn. That being said, my last visit a couple weeks ago was great! Yes, the staff is does not have the professional demeanor or perhaps expertise of an experienced hotelier, but they were very accommodating. My... More
