I picked this hotel because it had high speed internet and a free breakfast, and it was about half way between Gulf Shores and Miami which was our next destination. I was a little surprised to see orange and grapefruit trees in the inner courtyard next to the pool (2nd photo). In Florida, the outdoor pool can be open year round. The hotel was full.
The hotel is 3 stories and has an elevator, but the elevator doesn't sound too healthy. The rooms are exterior rooms, which means that you walk to them via a balcony from the elevator, instead of walking down a central corridor.
Unique Quality: The high speed wireless was a joy, and enabled me to upload the hundreds of pictures that I took in Mobile which I couldn't do while we were in Gulf Shores because of the unreliability of the wireless there. We had the usual Hampton Inn amenities - free breakfast (which they now call On the HouseTM hot breakfast), or Hampton's On the RunTM breakfast bags (Monday-Friday), lapboard for writing or using a laptop computer, coffee maker, iron and ironing board, and complimentary in-room movie channel. Local calls are free and there is no surcharge for using a calling card. The clock radio appeared to have preset stations playing specified types of music.
Hampton Inns do not usually have restaurants, but a restaurant is usually nearby. We walked to the Lone Star Steakhouse rather than driving in search of someplace more exotic because we didn't want to lose our parking place near the elevator.
