The Hampton Inn is coveniently located close to interstate 80. It’s a 30 minute drive to the wineries from the Napa Valley. The hotel looks very modern. The check in was very friendly en the people of the reception are very helpful. Across the reception desk you find two computers on which you can access the internet for free. If you got further in the hotel, you enter a large atrium. This atrium is very large, and all the rooms are located around the atrium. The rooms are large, but if you book a single room suite, then you expect something bigger. The beds are very comfortable. The room is equipped with air conditioning, an alarm radio, a coffee maker, high speed internet access if you have a laptop, television, and a phone. The bathroom was large and clean with all the necessary amenities.
The breakfast is complimentary and is served in the atrium. You can find hot and cold items on the breakfast buffet. You also receive a free newspaper every morning. The hotel also have a pool and a fitness room. We did not visit the fitness room, but the pool was a bit spartan and located on the side of the freeway, so very noisy.
This hotel is a good value, but not so cheap. We paid $107 without taxes per night. If we come again to the wine area in California, we would stay here again.
