Good stay despite the current challenges. Very pleasant, helpful, courteous, patient, and professional staff. Would stay here again. Hampton continues to be a good brand standard versus Hilton’s newer hipper offerings.

This hotel is located across the street from The James Madison University Main Campus. The room had great touches to it to include a barn door that would cover the closet or bathroom, a Waterpik brand Showerhead - that was fabulous, an electric outlet in the bathroom that was a combo for electricity and night light all-in-one device. The two queen beds in the room were very comfortable. The complimentary breakfast, this stay, consisted of Western Egg Omelet, Beef Sausage Links, Turkey Sausage Links, Homemade Lightly Seasoned Potatoes, various cold cereals, various bakery items, white and wheat bread, bananas, apples, oranges, orange juice and cranberry juice. I think there was also waffles to be made, can't remember. There was an indoor pool and a weight room, also. I highly recommend this Hampton location.

Hotel upkeep was lacking. Somethings were very worn in need of replacement. There wasn't a suitcase rack. Carpeting was missing in places. Complementary breakfast was nice. Fresh popcorn was a nice touch in the afternoon.

Welcoming staff upon arrival. Parking lot lighting should be brighter. Clean room. Updated furniture (table). Replace the TV. It took 10 minutes to come on due to no signal. Nowhere to plug phone to recharge.

I felt like I was victim of the ‘bait and switch’… the room in the photo was lovely but the room I stayed in was a huge disappointment! Everything was old and dirty looking - the carpet was stained,and the bathroom had mold. I was tired from driving a long distance, so I did not complain. I would have also felt bad for the staff who were all so very nice. I think the biggest issue is I did not get a request to review the hotel from Hilton as I did the 4 other Hampton Inn hotels on my trip, all of which were wonderful. Maybe I should go back to being loyal to Marriott?!?

Not your typical Hampton Inn in regards to cleanliness. Lobby & elevators very dreary & could use a good cleaning. Rooms are small. Limited lighting, no clock. Everything is damp, probably because the bathroom has no ventilation.oh and the bathroom is right next to the beds, so forget about privacy. Carpets dirty. TV has limited reception and filthy remote. Only positive was front desk matched a cheaper price online. Too many options, go somewhere else.

This is by far the worst Hampton Inn I ever stayed at. It is TERRIBLE. Not only is it outdated, dirty and smelly, it also has an elevator that is held together with duct tape! And it doesn’t always take you to the correct floor. When I asked about it I was told “the wires are crossed, but it will get you there eventually”. What???? That’s insane!! The place smells like an old ashtray. The room was not clean. The ceiling had mold on it. A few places on the walls had a splatter of something and the carpet was gross. There was a copious amount of dust along the baseboards. The shower curtain I am certain has never been washed. The bed lines were ripped and stained. I sent a review to the hotel and all I got was “we have hired new managers” of this and that. Well obviously they are not up to par. I would definitely not ever stay here again.

This hotel is not up to the Hampton standards and I am shocked that Hilton allows them to bare the Hampton name. Only 1 of the two elevators worked and the one had things held together inside the car with duct tape. The room was very outdated & not particularly clean. The beds were definitely not standard Hampton issued beds…my back might never be the same. And there was basically no lighting in the room. The only lights were between the beds. The desk did not even have a light for working. We went to breakfast an hour before it was to be over and nothing was left. They literally had one person working in the breakfast area, so we left and had to eat our breakfast elsewhere. With all of the other hotel options in the area, I will not stay here again.

I don't know that I have ever stayed at a Hampton Inn that felt this old. The staff were friendly, but the rooms definitely need an update. Nothing major to report, just a bit aged. Breakfast was understaffed, so food was out and trash was full.
