    Facility was clean throughout

    Not convenient going left from facility and breakfast was minimal in comparison to other Hamptons we've been in. Housekeeping personnel were not friendly.

    Noisy hallway - people coming in late and very loud!

    Breakfast was the best of any location we have visited

    The extra blanket in the closet had a stain... And might have been clean but the stain grossed us out.

    Breakfast, staff, extended checkout

  • 8.2

    The breakfast had a good variety of food and the small things they do such as bag lunch bag of goodies is not seen in other places.

    The first floor near the elevator was cigarette smell when we were there. Someone must have smoked outside and thrown the cigarette in the trash can on the first floor next to the elevator.

    Staff was extremely friendly and helpful!

    The roll away bed was extremely uncomfortable and therefore we did not use it. We were there for a wedding and arrived back late the 2nd night and didn't want to ask to have it removed.

    Staff was excellent and very friendly.

    bed sloped a bit and pillows were not comfortable.

    My son was the traveler on this occasion - he had an overnight stay at the hotel to get to the medical school for an interview - he reported that the hotel staff was absolutely helpful - gave him access to the hotel conference room facilities - computers to get his reports completed - he was able to enjoy the snacks that evening and he had a good breakfast - everything at the hotel was pleasant and comfortable Dr. Rogers Govender
