I've stayed here numerous times and I truly like this property. I have never experienced any problems and I will definitely stay here in the future. It's in a very good location and is very close shopping, as well as dining.

Rates are usually among the lowest for comparable hotels in the area. Located near the university & I-40. Walk to restaurants: Texas Roadhouse, BWW & others. Good internet speed, friendly staff and clean rooms.

Obviously Hampton Inn is not a 5 star hotel but I give it 5 stars for exceeding my expectations. Rooms were very clean, beds comfortable, Neutrogena soaps, great free breakfast included free of charge and hotel staff super friendly. Would definitely stay there again if in area!
