After my first night in the hotel I kept thinking how nice it was. The lobby looked new and clean. The room is big with a comfortable bed; the pool is nice; the breakfast was great. I planned to give the property a 5 of 5 review. But then, on my first full day of the stay, I left the hotel in the late morning and returned in the evening to find the room hadn't been serviced. The bed was unmade; the wet used towels were still in the bathtub; and my smelly trash was still in the cans. I went to the front desk to ask why the room wasn't serviced and was told the hotel only services rooms on request. I've stayed at hundreds of hotels and this is the first time I've ever heard of one that assumes you don't want housekeeping! This fact seems too important to not bring to the attention of every guest during check-in. UPDATE: Subsequent to writing my initial review, I learned Hilton changed their policy so that most of their properties in the US default to no housekeeping. I think this is a terrible decision which they've pretended is responsive to customer preference when clearly it's a cynical cost-cutting initiative. I still blame the hotel for not asking if I'd like my room cleaned. Especially when they see someone check in with a toddler, they should reveal you won't get garbage removed or fresh towels unless you specifically request it.

Hotel's Favourite
We were passing through Nebraska and stopped there for a few days. Front desk receptionist was accommodating, helpful, acknowledged our Hilton Diamond status and we were in our room in no time. The hotel seems to be new. Our king bed was super comfortable. Interaction with staff throughout the whole stay was pleasant at all times. Everyone was nice and professional. We went shopping, out to eat, sightseeing and enjoyed refreshing pool and relaxing hot tub in the evening. Breakfast was still not what it used to be due to pandemic, but hopefully it will be back to normal during our future stay. Hotel is facing a busy freeway, but we stayed on a quiet side.

Has been a while since stayed at Hampton. Was nicer than I remember. Had handicap accessible room which was quite big. Breakfast was good. Is in good spot where easy to get on highway and restaurants and gas right nearby. Couple issues to note. The shower chair was not in room. Had to ask for one and the one they gave us had seen better days. Was beat up a bit. Also the sink counter was not level. I think that someone had pushed down on it and was not properly repaired. So if you were using sink and got any water on the counter it would run off onto the floor which was annoying. Beds were comfortable

Had an overnight stay on a recent road trip. The hotel looked very new. The room was very comfortable would be very nice for a longer stay. The breakfast was very good, the food was always hot. Convenient access to the interstate, but without too much highway noise.

This is the 2nd time I've stayed here and it will probably be the last. The only credit I give is to the front desk staff who are always friendly. Not always quick though. My last visit was for a business trip. I arrived late, and when I entered into my room it was still dirty and in disarray from the guest before me. Ew. So I had to go back down to the front desk and request a new room. The front desk attendant said that "they had a new house cleaner" that was till learning the ropes. They were nice enough to put me in a suite to the trouble. The suite had be "cleaned" but was still disgusting. The couch has visible stains all over it, the furniture and decor was extremely outdated, there was some gross nasty sticky stuff all over the table legs and feet, and there was hair in my bed. I felt gross just staying there. And they charge $119 a night? What a rip. Never again. Stay anywhere else.

Checked into this location to visit family and on business got there a little early the lady at the front desk said let me check and see if your room is ready she quickly make sure it was finished and got us into our room it was large and comfortable and very well appointed. When my wife and I came down she asked if we were headed to dinner we said yes and she asked if we needed any suggestions that was the second positive thing she had done for us and we had only been there a couple of hours. When we came back she asked how dinner was. We were there four nights she worked three of the days she always remembered us and asked what we had going on that day and if it was anything fun. The gentleman that worked the evening shift was equally friendly and recognizes the people that are there more than just one night and always has A pleasant word and asked how your day has been. I will be back in this area at least three or four times a year and this will be homebase when we visit, very comfortable bed very well appointed room no reason to look anywhere else.

We were traveling across country from Michigan to Utah. We arrived and were expecting a good stay, no indication of a problem at check-in. We soon learned there was no hot water. If your into the benefits of cold showers, this is the place for you!! Get that endocrine system flowing!!

Good centralized location, staff was nice and both easy check-in and check-out. They had grab and go breakfast or you could order it made-to-order. Good options overall. Lots of traffic and people, so a busy hotel.

The room above us was so loud and jump on the floor and running across the room. Not quiet sure what was going on up there had to call the front desk twice to get it resolved. Once at 11:30pm and once at 12am. My 11 year old who had a basketball tournament at 7am the following morning couldn’t fall asleep till 2am when the noise finally stopped. Worst sleep we’ve ever had in a hotel. Ever!
