I booked my stay with Travelocity including the fact that I was traveling with my dog. You gave me a price and I agreed to it. When I checked in, I was told there was a $75 non-refundable pet fee. That was NOT part of my agreement with Travelocity. Luckily, my dog is a support dog that the Hampton Inn cannot charge for. When I agree to a price with Travelocity, then that is the price I should pay. There should never be any other charges!!!!

Alecia at the front desk was warm, welcoming, and accommodating. Pool was nice and breakfast was good with a nice variety of options. Although the property sits close to a busy highway, our room was very quiet.
