Very nice

Pros: The breakfast provided is wonderful and the staff for breakfasts are very efficient.
Cons: Better communication between front desk and cleaning staff (blanket note above).
Location: Convenient to our son's dorm and the downtown area. I like the Village Inn next door, too.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Hampton Inn. Our only problem was that the comforter on the bed was rather heavy and a little too insulating. I asked the front desk clerk in the morning to have a blanket sent to the room so that we could replace the comforter with a lighter blanket. She promised that she'd make it happen. By the time we got back to the room at 10 pm there was no blanket, so we had the heavy comforter again. The breakfast provided is wonderful and the staff for breakfasts are very efficient. Loved this part of our stay. All in all, a very good experience.

Hello Diane, First of all, thank you so much for leaving us with some feedback. I am happy to hear that our hotel's location met your needs, and that your breakfast experience was enjoyable. i will certainly share these feelings with the breakfast team. However, I am troubled to hear that you mad a request for a new blanket, but no blanket was provided. I will let the front desk know that better inter-departmental communication must take place. Hopefully this mishap will not change your mind about staying with us in the future, as we look forward to it! Sincerely, Adam Barksdale General Manager
