Hotel was close to the state park. We were there for the Starved Rock Marathon and hotel was only a few miles from the start line. Great time of year to go to the park, waterfalls, flowers, birds, it is a great area to visit.

If your looking for a well maintained helpful staff hotel this is the place. Stayed for 5 days and it was great. The complementary breakfast was delicious and if you needed a to go bag cause your running out the door the host in the front lobby always has some ready. Also after a long day of work they have fresh baked cookies and freshly brewed coffee.

This is a nice hotel. It's very clean, friendly staff and big rooms. Great, real breakfast in the morning, not just grab and go type food. It's not super close to Starved Rock but close enough. The hot tub came in handy after a long day there. I'd definitely stay here again. I have nothing negative to say about it at all.

Hampton Inn Ottawa offers great breakfast selections including eggs, yogurt, waffles, and choices of coffees which is important to business person. Bedding is comfortable so I had very good sleep during my stays however the walls are very thin so I can hear the noise next room. I unwillingly overheard some embarrassing noise next door, fortunately I have earplugs with me.

Stayed here for 1 night with 2 rooms. The pool was small, but clean and nice. There was also a hot tub, which is nice. The rooms were clean and nicely furnished. The free breakfast is really nice and has something for everyone. The exceptional part of this hotel was its front desk manager on duty. He was really personable and ensured guests were enjoying themselves.

Showed up I have for a tough day to travel on I 80. The place was friendly, there were travel restaurants around including Cracker Barrel. Most of all they like dogs. There was no pet fee. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. There was a terrible storm the night we are there the power went out and the staff gave all of the guest flashlights who ask. They were very supportive.

The rooms at the Hampton Inn are well-kept and clean. They do wash all the sheets, including the comforter, which is nice. The bathrooms are spacious. HBO is included in the TV, as are many cable channels. The pool seemed nice (small), but the hot tub was closed due to repairs. We had a specific room request, and the staff recognized our request and made sure we got it. Front desk was always staffed by friendly workers. Room service was equally friendly.

I have stayed at this hotel many times and it is always the same. Clean, Quiet, friendly staff. Convenient to I-80 and state parks as well as the river.

Consistent Hampton quality in terms of the guest room, bed, linens and restroom. While the pool areas were adequate, we thought the complimentary breakfast was lacking in terms of proteins over other locations that we have recently stayed. Cigarette smell in the bathroom was noticeable and was not dealt with by staff in a timely fashion. Overall, good stay...comparable to the Fairfield and Holiday Inn Express nearby.

We stayed here recently and were very pleased. The hotel was extremely clean, the rooms were large and comfy and clean, the lobby and breakfast area was clean and modern, and the complimentary breakfast was very good (hot items, not just packaged rolls and bagels). Definitely a great place, worth the few extra dollars compared to other properties.

Sort of struggled a bit during the night and early morning as I heard the neighbors alarm through the wall and then around 8 am the cleaning staff -- with our do not disturbed sign on our door -- decided it was a good time to vacuum next door to us.
