Older hotel undergoing remodeling. Great location to downtown and very friendly staff. I would stay there again in future but I would make sure to stay on a floor that isn't undergoing renovation as it was noisy.

This hotel was filthy. Despite the fact that it was being remodeled, there was gum and other dirt on the walls, the windows were horrendous and the mattress and box spring were in need of replacement. I'd never stay here again.

Parking and area outside hotel is little sketchy. Hot breakfast was not looking too appealing and we ended up eating outside. If you only care about staying and get a room to sleep, it is a good option. Front staff was good and helping.

Thank you for the kind comments on our team members. I realize the liquor stores do not always make the best first impression. We are limited now with the items we can produce for breakfast, but soon our new kitchen will be completed. Sincerely, Beth Wuestefeld

My family & I were in Covington, Kentucky for a dance competition this past weekend and had reserved Hampton Inn about 6 months ago. This hotel is currently under renovations. I had hoped to get a renovated room however king rooms were the only rooms that had been renovated & the hotel was booked so we kept the original plan...

Thank you for the kind comments on our hotel staff! I agree, once we complete the renovations the hotel will be beautiful. It has been a challenge keeping halls and lobby free of construction traffic and we will be happy to be finished. I hope you did well in the competition! Sincerely, Beth Wuestefeld

Poorly trained and managed staff made this stay unpleasant. The hotel is going through a renovation. Staff will not lift a finger to make your stay better and have no problems lying to guests when asking for a reasonable accommodation.

Great place to stay. Real clean and comfortable. Our weekend trip was great. The staff here is willing to accommodate in any way they can. From finding us a cab for a ride to the city, to the local pizza hangout. Great staff.

We stayed one night back in November. Arrived late and as we were driving to the hotel it almost seemed as if we may have taken a wrong turn! The area is very dark and have to admit I was uneasy parking my car in the lot! It was totally fine though. The hotel was full that night. Re staff:...

I learned the answer during a recent stay. As mentioned in other posts, this hotel is under renovation. None of the new rooms are ready. It appears that all routine maintenance stopped long ago. Walls were stained and chipped. Carpet was greasy and sticky. Bathroom tiles and the hair dryer were coming off the wall. I checked out after one...
