Clean and nice people
The was not on in our room and it took awhile to cool down
Friendly and helpful staff, nice accommodations
Smoking room are horrible!! Hotels I have stayed at always seperated the room real good but these were next to each other. My child found a used bandaide in the sofa bed. So they need to clean better. Basically the walls are thin and can hear a lot.
The hotel was clean & was in a good location.
I booked this room for my son and they wouldn't let him stay there because he didn't gave a credit card.... I lostxxx . Very unhappy about the while thing.
This was my second time to make a reservation here. The first time was ok, except that when I checked in they gave me a key to a room that was still occupied and I walked in on strangers. It took about an hour for them to find me a clean, unoccupied room. I forgave them and decided to give them another chance. This time, with just hours until my arrival, they called and told me that the they had OVERBOOKED and that they no longer had a room for me. I had made the reservation online months in advance and they were kicking me out that day! They offered to get me a room at another hotel for the same rate (I asked) and I said fine. The other hotel (Comfort Suites) was wonderful. When I went to check out the next morning, though, the rate was quite a bit higher. I called Hampton Inn to see what they wouold do about that, since I had been assured that the rate would be the same. I was rudely told, 'That's too bad. That's just what happens when you reserve online sometimes.' I don't know how a hotel can just cancel your reservation without any real notice. I will certainly never stay here again, much less make reservations online at any Hilton hotel (it was through Hilton's website) again. Very disappointing.
