Led by the front desk staff, specifically Annie & Ed, this hotel makes a "Road Warrior" feel at home and takes care of you. They don't act like they care, they TRULY CARE and ACT on it!!

Hilton have standards, and they are well kept also in Hampton Inn. The room was very clean and conveniant. The staff was friendly, check in and check out were fast. I stayed for one night on my way south, and was with a car, so it was very conveniant.

I went to this hotel due to a training event in Wilmington. The hotel was very clean- probably the cleanest hotel I've ever stayed in. The staff was very attentive and helpful. They also cooked up the best breakfast I've had at a hotel. Kudos to the staff and management.

Hampton Inns are a go-to brand for me because they never disappoint. This stay was no different. At this particular hotel I encountered extremely helpful and knowledgeable staff. The breakfast was really extensive and the dining area super clean.
