The staff at the front desk were incredibly friendly, helpful and personable. They seemed to genuinely love their jobs. The women who worked the breakfast were openly rude, seemed annoyed to be there and appeared to hate their jobs-not really the type of behavior you want to interact with on your vacation. The rooms were nice, but would be better with more hooks available for towels and clothing and a fridge for snacks and restaurant leftovers.

Clean & Comfortable Room

Pros: Clean and close to destination.
Cons: No issues.
Location: On the main strip in Traverse City, a little away from "downtown" not convenient to walk for shopping or restaurants. But that wasn't our goal.
Room was ready for us when we arrived, bed was very comfortable and all the amenities in the room were satisfactory. Very nice breakfast offered to its guests.

Very nice hotel

Pros: Hotel staff
Cons: Update/paint the Pool area, kind of dingy paint on walls and pool/hot tub had rust stains.
Location: Lots of things to do in Traverse city. From local home grown breweries to 3 different local distilleries. Food is abundant. You should not go hungry.
Check in was a breeze, took less then 5 minutes. Staff was very friendly. Room was on second floor, Yes they had elevator, and was very clean and up to date décor. Twin beds made up with soft sheets and comforter. Bathroom was clean with no noticeable defects. Pool is located on 1st floor and is large enough to swim laps but shallow enough for kids to play in all areas of it. There was a hot tub, and it was very nice. Comfortable 104f temp.

Very convenient location.

Pros: Location
Location: Endless possibilities in Traverse City and surrounding areas. Beaches, boating, hiking, wineries, shopping, music........
Love the location of this hotel. It is directly across from the beach/playground. Did find the room to be a little on the small side. Decent variety for the free breakfast buffet. Front desk help were friendly and helpful.

Best Deal in TC!

We stayed in this hotel on our yearly weekend getaway to Traverse City in the fall of 2011.  We have stayed at a lot of 2-4 star hotels in TC over the last decade on many trips to TC.  All of them could not hold a candle to this Hampton.  I heard it was remodeled the year we stayed there and it showed!  It appeared to be brand new, and one of the cleanest hotels I have ever stayed in.  (I am very picky about cleanliness).  We had to stay at another hotel in 2012 because this one was booked, but from here on forward we will be booking this hotel for our yearly trip well in advance so we are sure to get a room here!  It is easily the best value in TC!  The breakfast is good as well.
