Otis Series 1 At The Hampton Inn & Suites in Augusta West
This Hampton Inn is 1 of 2 that we actually squeezed in on my 2016 Summer Hampton Inn Tour (over Labor Day Weekend which is kind of the official end to Summer.) With fall starting this week, this is the last upload of my 2016 Summer Hampton Inn Tour which totals out to be 28 Hamptons in 8 different states. I enjoyed the tour and hope you all did too. This doesn't mean it is my last upload of a Hampton Inn, just the official end of the summer Hampton tour.

This was one of our stops in Augusta. This hotel had a unique set up for business center. 3 computers on round table in lobby area.

Hampton Inn Woodruff Road Greenville, SC HD Re-Take
When we were in Greenville, SC last month, we stopped by this Hampton Inn even though we had already filmed the Dover elevator there back in 2011. They had done some renovations since the last time we were there so here is a HD retake of this particular Hampton.2016-08-28 21:11:27
Found Another Elevator (Otis Hydro Fit) In Vestibule Area At New Courtyard
At first, I thought this must be a growing trend to have elevators in the vestibule area but the use of this particular elevator actually makes more sense than an elevator going up to the room floors. Check out this video to see what the purpose of this elevator is for.2016-08-27 21:11:27
New Firepit at Hampton Inn Tunnel Road, Asheville, NC
Shout out to Andrea Coon & her fine staff for all they do. Earlier this month, I stayed at Hampton Inn Tunnel Road for a couple of nights. While I was there, Andrea gave me a couple of souvenirs from their recent renovations. Remember the "welcome to Asheville" that hung on the back wall at the front desk? Andrea gave me those letters now that they are not using those anymore because they have a new backdrop for the front desk area & she also gave me the picture of the Asheville map that hung out in the vestibule area. On one of the nights we stayed, we took time to enjoy the new fire pit out on the outdoor patio and we took a short video clip of it for ya'll. If you haven't seen the video I uploaded earlier of the new renovations, click on this link 21:11:26

Wrapping Up The 2016 Summer Hampton Tour
Wrapping up the 2016 Summer Hampton Tour with a full hotel tour of this Hampton Inn that used to be a Holiday Inn which is kind of ironic because when the very first Hampton Inn was built and opened back in 1984, it was owned by Holiday Inn, Inc. Hilton acquired the brand in 1999 in a merger with Promus Hotel Corporation which by that time had ownership of the Hampton brand. Special thanks to Brandy at the front desk, it was nice to meet you & thanks for letting your "Hamptonality" shine through. Hope you all have enjoyed the "Summer 2016 Hampton Tour" video series on my channel as much as I have enjoyed exploring the various Hamptons this summer & even though the summer is coming to a close, I am looking forward to seeing more Hamptons in the near future & when I do, I'll be sure to share those videos with ya'll. Thanks for watching. This summer has been great and I hate to see it coming to an end but alas school time has already started back for me. I will upload videos as often as I can as I still have some regular elevator videos from the summer that I haven't gotten uploaded yet so stay tuned for those.... For more pictures of this Hampton Inn, check out my FB album at 21:11:23

Full Hotel Tour of The Award Winning Hampton Inn in Lincolnton, NC
Summer 2016 Hampton Tour continues with a full hotel tour with GM Vicky Connelly who some of you may remember her as the GM from the Hampton Inn & Suites in Mooresville, NC. Vicky showed us the 2 different room types that they offer at this Hampton Inn in Lincolnton, NC. In the video clip, you hear me talk about the queen room being similar to the one we just toured because Vicky did show us a king and also a queens (each had a view of a car lot out the window) so then she did show us a 2nd queen room on the front side of hotel that had a view of nice trees so we just included the video clip of the 2nd queen room along with the king room for this video tour. For more info on this award winning Hampton Inn, be sure to check out their website at 21:11:21
New Courtyard By Marriott in Asheville (Near The Airport) NC

Full Hotel Tour of the Hampton Inn & Suites in Kenwood, Ohio
This particular Hampton Inn & Suites on our "2016 Summer Hampton Tour" is one that we actually stayed at. Brand new hotel that opened I think in April of this year. As you will see in this tour, this one has a more modern look than most Hamptons. In fact, this is the first Hampton that we stayed in that has a sliding door for bathroom which also is used for the closet door as well. If you are ever in the Kenwood area, this is the hotel I would recommend.2016-08-12 21:11:18

1927 Historic Lake Lure Inn In North Carolina
Thanks to Alfred & Angie Foster for letting us know about this place. The movie Dirty Dancing was filmed at Lake Lure. The Last Of The Mohicans was filmed very near here at Chimney Rock.

This is the machine room for the Signa 4 TKE elevators at the Hampton Inn in Lincolnton, NC. Not sure what happened towards the end of the video file.

Westinghouse Elevator at Macy's Store in Haywood Mall, Greenville, SC
I believe this one is a Westinghouse but I could be wrong. This one has been somewhat vandalized but still runs good.2016-08-04 21:11:13
Great Wolf Lodge In Mason, Ohio Lobby Elevator
This elevator was extremely busy so the video is kinda choppy for that reason but also because we were having issues with cell phone memory thinking it was full when it wasn't so we had to switch phones during the process of this filming. We did get to ride a little by ourselves so we did get a good cab view & an overall impression of the elevator. We filmed one of the side elevators here too and that one has photos we took around GWL. Here is the link to that video 21:11:12
Hampton Inn in Lexington / Hamburg I-75 Kentucky

We don't usually shop at malls but we stopped at Haywood Mall since they have a new Cheesecake Factory there and so we decided to have lunch there and then we walk through the mall and filmed HD retakes of the anchor store elevators. We had filmed here back in 2011. I have a Facebook follower who lives in Greenville, SC but I can't remember his name and I had looked for his messages in my inbox to let him know we were coming but I have a lot of messages in the inbox and it has been awhile since I have heard from him. Sorry I couldn't remember your name, but if you are watching this, this one is dedicated to you.2016-07-31 21:11:09
US Elevator At A Very Unique Hampton Inn Location In Caryville,TN
Once an outdoor corridor hotel that has been renovated to be indoor corridor. This Hampton Inn is located on a hill that overlooks a lake with beautiful scenery & live llamas in a gate on the backside hill plus it has a lot of interesting artifacts on the outside grounds with some of them used in the movie Roots & had come from the estate of the author of Roots, Alex Haley. There's also local history inside like the jacket that has a bullet hole in it that was worn by John Ayers in a local whiskey raid. You can click the link below for more on that particular story plus visit my FB photo album page for more photos of this Hampton that didn't make it into the video. We were walking down the hallway and housekeeping had left several doors propped open so we snapped a photo to show you the new closet/bathroom door that some of the Hamptons are using now (the Hampton we stayed at in Kenwood, Ohio had these types of doors so stay tuned for that full hotel tour coming soon)

The Ark Encounter in Williamstown, Kentucky Does Have An Elevator
Yes, the Ark does have a public elevator although it is encouraged to use the ramps and leave the elevator for only those who truly need it. The staff were very friendly and I even got to see the service elevator (that was not operational that day) The Ark Encounter is a great place to visit and tool in explaining how Noah's Ark could have looked liked inside & out. It also addresses the questions raised of how Noah & his family could have taken care of the animals etc. For the photos we took of our visit there, you can check out my FB page photo albums at these links
