Basically, this was all we have come to expect from a Hampton Inn; friendly and helpful staff, well-maintained and clean public areas and guestrooms, nice variety of breakfast choices. But there was a very nice surprise at check-in at this hotel. They offer shuttle service to the downtown restaurants. This was such a bonus in an unfamiliar town, not to...

We encountered several problems at this hotel. The A/C stopped working in our room, the night employee locked the automatic doors early so we had to bang on them to check in, the TV satellite didn't work most of the time, the bed was horribly uncomfortable, and the bathroom sink wouldn't drain. No microwave or fridge in room. The juice...

Excellent hotel to consider if you're coming to Charleston, WV. Priced below other more elite hotels, but delivers excellent service, beautiful guest rooms, and affordable rates! Conveniently located close to restaurants and local attractions. Also easy to get to right off the freeway.

B Moore Charleston WV Review to attend a football game at WVSU in Spetember 2016. The staff was friendly and the atmosphere was warm and welcoming. The location is directly off the highway but wished it was closer in towards downtown. You had to drive to restaurants.

Loved our stay at the Hampton in Charleston. Lots of happy surprises - lovely crisp clean room, delicious walking-distance food at Noah's restaurant, unexpected spectacular fireworks over the wide peaceful river, a pretty blue bridge, lively happy painted columns, lots of flowers, fresh air, upbeat interesting people, real-together families. Wish we could have stayed longer!

We stayed at the Hampton Inn, Downtown Charleston for four nights. Vickie, the manager, and her team couldn't have been more helpful, obliging or hospitable. Nothing was too much trouble and their assistance and advice made our stay in Charleston a thoroughly enjoyable and comfortable one. We'll definitely stay here again the next time we visit Charleston.

The staff was awesome! They were extremely helpful in assisting with transportation and great local eating establishments. The room itself smelled HORRIBLE like some previous water damage that went unfixed. The room was very dated. I stayed in 2 different Hampton Inn properties back to back and the the two are day and night, Charleston being the night.

The website advertises a pool but it was closed for remodeling, maintenance. Whatever you want to call it - the pool was closed. FALSE ADVERTISING! Parking lot is small and tricky to exit to the freeway.
