Hotel was updated and well maintained. Staff was helpful and accommodating. Room was large and clean. Beds were comfortable. Hotel was in a great location, within driving distance of many local attractions.
We stayed during a holiday week and this hotel was fully-booked. This is a small remodeled hotel with a contemporary look and feel. No pool, and no coin-laundry. Closest (decent/safe) coin laundromat was about 10 minutes away.
Breakfast - Good Hampton-Inn breakfast with their new breakfast yogurt smoothies. My personal favorite is the tropical mango smoothie. It reminds me of a mango lassi.
Room - Smelled damp. The issue was brought up to the Hotel Front Desk Manager who passed the info to Housekeeping. However, due to our stay being a holiday week, the Housekeeping Supervisor was unavailable. Housekeeping sprayed air-freshener and provided temporary carpet fans with the door and window closed. We asked a Housekeeping Attendant if there is anything else they could do, and I was informed that the Supervisor is off, thus, nothing else can be done. The carpet was dirty and the shower head was rusty/moldy. This was an uncomfortable stay for us.
Location - There is a nice park next to the hotel, which was really wonderful. Plenty of food options around, and within 15 minutes of many attractions.
Service - The Front Desk Manager that checked us in was great! Knowledgeable of the area, and helped us find a parking spot two nights in a row.
Unfortunately, I do not plan on returning to this hotel and will try a different hotel next time.
