This is a first for Peyton, staying at a Hampton Inn. She’s never been to one before and she’s super excited. We are staying at the Hampton Inn in Shakopee, Minnesota and taking in a few of the fun fall activities there are to do around town.
The Hampton Inn is conveniently located right off of 169 and 13. This also makes it a great place to stay if you are thinking of staying a weekend in Shakopee and taking in some of the attractions like Valley Fair, Murphy’s Landing, Canterbury Downs or one of their other must-see stops like Sever’s Fall Festival or the Huge Yellow Barn Candy Store just a few minutes south in Jordan, Minnesota.
We arrived at the Hampton Inn shortly after 6 pm on Friday night. The first thing I noticed was how big and spacious the lobby area is. There is plenty of seating just off the front desk area for guests to sit and relax. This is also the same area they will be serving the complimentary breakfast in the morning. There’s plenty of seating and tables.
Once we checked in, we head to our room! We were on the 4th floor so we took the elevator and headed to the room. Upon exiting the elevator I noticed there were little plaques outside each room and each one had a different picture on it. I thought it was really cute! We were in the cowboy hat room but Peyton really wanted to stay in the flower room. I’m pretty sure they are all the same inside but having a cute photo on the outside really stood out to me. It’s a great way for those that are not great with numbers to help them remember which room they are in.
Inside, there were two queen beds, a desk with a good size fridge and a television. Peyton quickly claimed the bed she wanted to hang out and made herself at home. But we didn’t stay still for long! There’s lots to do right in the hotel. There’s a good size pool that is perfect for the whole family to burn off energy before bed in. Plus there’s a workout room for mom and dad. And if you got the munchies they have a pantry by the front desk you can stop and grab some snacks at.
The Hampton Inn Shakopee is centrally located to many eateries. Many are in walking distance but due to having to cross 13 I suggest hopping in the car and heading to them. While we were in town, we had dinner at O’Brien’s Public House. It’s about a 10-minute drive to downtown Shakopee from the Hampton Inn but once you get there, park the car and walk around. It’s a beautiful area and you can have lunch or dinner at O’Brien’s Public House.
