6/10 Good

I'll start with this: The comfort level of the bed and pillows was amazing. Next....as soon as I initially walked into the room (709) I immediately smelled a very musty odor and the ceiling fan was on at a high rate. The temperature in the room was 76, so I turned it down several degrees to 74, and eventually to 72. The entire time I was in the room, the musty odor remained and the air quality in the room was a bit humid. I'm assuming the air conditioning filter needs to be changed or the unit needs to be sanitized?? Also, I noticed the carpet on the floor by the beds is quite old and felt oily as if it has not been steam cleaned in quite a long time. In my years of travel with Hampton or other hotels, I have never smelled a musty disgusting odor like this in a hotel, except for when I have traveled to a beach location that allowed pets. I will say the bed and pillows were quite comfortable and the bathroom was in good condition. Everyone at the front desk was very courteous and helpful. Next time I'm in Austin, I will plan on staying at Hampton Inn for its location and hopefully I will be housed in a room that smells fresher than the one I had and air quality that is good.
