This hotel is a nice, comfortable place to stay. A little pricey. Complementary breakfast was good. Particularly liked the oatmeal, nuts, fruit and hard boiled eggs. Enjoyed the location. Staff is very friendly and competent. No complaints besides an intermittent smell of sewage in the 4th floor hallway. Will stay here again.

I was in the area for a college reunion, and this hotel was centrally located between wine tasting in Paso and other activities in AG. Having a Costco right down the street was also very convenient. The staff was very friendly, and the accommodations were pleasant.

Hotel staff very professional, friendly and helpful. Room very clean and comfortable; bathroom very clean and staff was very helpful when we asked for an extra shampoo. The black out curtains very good and help get an extra hour of sleep.

Convenient and clean but too much road noise. Should have asked for a room on the other side of the building. Breakfast was just ok. The eggs really don't taste like eggs but it's typical of Hampton hotels.

I stay here once to twice a month for business. The hotel is fairly new. Very clean and comfortable. Great place to stay for business trips. Good restaurants and shopping close by. Free breakfast pretty good, coffee not so much. Luckily there's two great coffee houses with in a mile of the hotel.

We had most of the hotel booked for a wedding and the front desk was rude. The garbage was piled up on on the floors for 2 days. Andy and Steph the night crew told us to take out the garbage ourselves. Management does not return calls or emails. there are other better and cheaper hotels. Stay away from here
