Want to stay near the Charlotte, North Carolina action without shelling out the big bucks? The Hampton Inn & Suites in Concord is just the ticket. A stay at the Hampton means that you’re staying in a super safe location surrounded in great shopping, plenty of dining, the SEA LIFE Charlotte-Concord Aquarium, and the Charlotte Motor Speedway (NASCAR races). To visit the fun in Uptown Charlotte, you’re a breezy 23 minutes away from the city.
Kids will dig the outdoor pool and the adults can restore tired travel-muscles in the outdoor whirlpool. Guestrooms have a small fridge and microwave, and beds are wonderfully comfy. The complimentary breakfast is lavish and lobby seating is decked in an upscale vibe. Wi-Fi and a shuttle service are both complimentary.

I have stayed at the Hampton Inn back in 2015 and I recently just returned again in July 2019 while I attended a course. The staff are helpful. There is a nice reception every night with some snacks and 2 free drinks.... definitely did not realize that until my last day.
Fitness centre is rather small. A few cardio machines and minor spa ball. No free weights sadly.
Continental Breakfast is included which starts daily at 6am. There is a good selection with healthy options (protein yogurts, fresh juices, fresh fruit), make your own waffles, breakfast pastries, cereals and daily hot specials.
Coffee/Tea seems to always be available which I love as I am a coffee drinker morning, noon and night.
There are also to go lunch bags that the hotel
Includes which is also super convenient.
There are cookies and snacks in the lobby.
Rooms: Very comfortable and spacious rooms. Fridge, microwave, coffee machine were included. Plenty of fresh towels. Some essential were also supplied Incase you have forgotten (shampoo, conditioner, body lotion). Bed was super comfy.
Pool: I did not utilize the pool though it was outdoor and rather small. There was also a jacuzzi.
The front entrance was under construction so we were entering from the back side.
Shuttle service was available which was very convenient.
Within walking distance to Texas Roadhouse, Jim and Nick’s BBQ, Sonic, Zaxby’s, the Waffle House and a few other places nearby. Across the freeway you had even more options and just a 5 min ride away (if that) was Concord Mills Mall with tons of shopping and restaurants available.
I would definitely stay at the Hampton Inn again.
Thank you again for a lovely stay.

Near a lot of excellent restaurants to chose from, not to mention very close to the Concord Mills Mall. Great price for the room, too. Evening reception is good. The biggest plus about this hotel is it’s location to a lot of great businesses and things to do.
