Except for the exterior, nothing about this property resembles a Hampton Inn. The quality, decor, amenities, breaky (the sliced smoked sausage and mini muffins are amazing), and rooms are far above a standard Hampton.
We needed a room to sleep 4 (2 adults and 2 teenagers); the king bed with the additional wall cabinet bed (yes, its a cool as it sounds) easily slept 4 people. Unlike standard fold out beds, the full wall bed was an actual mattress and very comfortable!
The staff were extremely helpful and polite. We had a nice chat at the end of the standard breakfast time, and the staff didn't seem bothered and rushed.
The staff were very helpful, the complimentary dinner was excellent (pulled pork sandwiches) and wine/beer. Nice stay! Bed was comfortable and bathroom was clean. Good location, will stay again. The only downside was that the furniture was dated, but everthing else was excellent!
