I'm a frequent, frugal traveler on a budget typically looking for lodging bargain, always accompanied by Mike, now a gentle old soul of a Chocolate Lab. Recently having been treated terribly by the cheaper chains -- Super 8 and Motel 6 come immediately to mind -- I've been experimenting with paying a bit more in the hopes of having a more peaceful stay.
The Best Western Plus / Inn At Hampton met my needs completely ... though wouldn't likely do so during summer months. That's because I received a Hotel Coupons price that was in line with my expectations, in an area I assume is very price-competitive during off-season months. That worked very much in my favor: I was having difficulty finding a reasonably priced place to stay in the Merrimack Valley ... so I drove the 35 miles east to this place.
I found the desk clerk very friendly and the room comfortable, larger than most (with a kind bed) and comfortable. The place was pet friendly but I didn't mention Mike was a guest when I checked in ... but we came in a back entrance (with auto-opening door) that was very convenient. The breakfast was your usual fare -- somewhat dry scrambled eggs, greasy sausages, etc. -- but there were a few extras added, like French toast and home fries. The king room was quiet, and offered a fridge, microwave and a decent size television. The internet worked great. The property had great conference facilities and an indoor pool, with ample parking.
So ... a five star stay, given I had zero complaints and a comfortable stay. But as I say, my guess is you will likely pay more in the summer for a room here. less
