The employees answering the phone and at the reception desk were very pleasant.
The room was almost spotless. There were a few specks on the carpet here and there.
The building is a little old. However, it has been pretty well maintained, and, at the time of my stay, they were replacing the wall air conditioning units with thermostats. Thank heavens they had not replaced the white coverlets with those new white Hampton Inn coverlets that are steaming hot, or the bathroom and closet doors with that new Hampton Inn hanging barn door that does not close the bathroom. Excellent.
I never knew that those little Hampton Inn convenience-store style areas were fairly reasonably priced. This was a life-saver as I was running late on arrival and there are no restaurants around the hotel. Actually, you have to get your car out anytime you leave the hotel as there is nothing around; residential areas are mostly hidden behind light industry. Your only way in or out is a driveway on North Avenue, which is a divided highway at this point, so you must drive in from the west and leave to the east. This was still one of the better locations for access to Wheaton, which has no hotels that I know of.
I got a free cookie in the lobby. I like free cookies.
The included breakfast was standard-issue Hampton Inn hot buffet, which I like.
Overall our stay was pleasant, and I would return.
