Situated in the hometown of legendary comedienne Lucille Ball, this hotel is located near all things ‘I Love Lucy.’ The Lucille Ball Desi Arnaz Museum & Desilu Playhouse is located nearby, along with Chautauqua Lake. The Erie International Airport is about 45 miles away. After a day of touring famous television sets and costumes, families can head back to the hotel and spend some quality time by the indoor pool. The kids will love to take a dip while the adults relax. The comfortable guestrooms and suites feature king or queen beds, a coffee maker and a flat screen television. Additionally, the spacious suites feature a sleeper sofa, a mini-fridge and microwave. Cribs are available upon request. Complimentary Wi-Fi access is available in the guestrooms so there is never a concern for kids or adults about staying connected to work, home or school while traveling. Families will love to stay each morning off right with the free, hot breakfast buffet that offers items like eggs, waffles, hot and cold cereal, fruit, yogurt and more. A fitness center and guest laundry facilities are available.

Hampton Inn is generally our go-to hotel when we're traveling because they're pretty much always clean, quiet, comfortable and reasonably priced, and because we're members of the Hilton Honors program, but this particular Hampton Inn exceeded the average. We stayed in a King Suite (Room 404) and it was a huge room, comfortable bed, great blackout type curtains, reliable temperature control, and a nice sized shower (which is important when you're over 6 feet tall). Two sinks in the room, a large closet, fridge, and a few other little amenities. We only stayed two nights and didn't spend a ton of time in the room, but I'd certainly stay here again.
Great check in service, hotel very clean from top to bottom.,Rested well and breakfast was awesome. Loved the mini waffle. Next trip will,try the chocolate ones! Always stay here when,in the Jamestown area.
