I chose this hotel becasue of it's proximity to the University of Tennessee for a football game. The hotel offered online check in and digital key. I was able to get in earlier than expected too. That was a plus. Room was spacious and clean. I just would liek to see Hampton Inn stop offering the silly paper straws. The offer frozen fruit smoothies but the silly paper straw doesn't work. They give me plastic utensils and plastic cups but the only allow me one choice in straw. If Hilton wants to offer stupid paper straws, please offer plastics one so people can have a choice. Other than the paper straws, the hotel was great!
We stayed overnight on our way through town. Nice hotel, no issues. Check in and out was easy. We endded up in a very large room. Easy to miss if you aren't careful looking for the entrance though....
