Right Next to UT-Martin
Posted Sep 27, 2016
The Hampton Inn is right next to UT-Martin. We were down there to visit our daughter who is a student at the University. The staff is friendly and prompt. The price was decent. The room was clean and well lit. My 11-year-old daughter enjoyed swimming in the pool. It's close to everything. Overall it was good but not great.
Things to improve upon: The bedding is nice, but the mattress itself is almost rock hard. I had to take one of the queen duvets off the unused bed, double it up on my bed, lay the extra top sheet across it in order to soften up the bed. A nice pillowtop bed would be very welcome. The breakfast is disappointing. The scrambled eggs look good, but they taste like powdered eggs - yuck. The breakfast sausage isn't regular brown sausage in patties or links but rather thinly sliced traditional rope sausage. Not terrible, but not the sausage I was expecting. Yogurts are half-sized portions. Coffee is decent. Having stayed at quite a few Hampton Inn's in various locations over the past 6 years, this seems to be a downward trend for the entire chain. The breakfasts have definitely been trimmed back on quality and quantity.
