“Great location and rate”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 December 2013 via mobile

If you are interested in visiting the Ybor section of Tampa, you cannot beat this hotel. It is within a block of Ybor, the rooms are bigger than usual for a Hampton Inn, and the rates are great. Breakfast is what you would expect from a Hampton Inn, but the eating area is nice. Also has good parking garage and a pool.

We were in the room 30 to 45 minutes when the door opened as we were getting ready for the night and someone said oh sorry and closed the door. I open the door to see who was trying to get into our room and It was another guest that the front desk gave keys to our room. They were as surprised as we were. Luckily my daughter and wife had just finished getting dressed. The phone rang and the front desk clerk wanted to know our last name, time of check in and how long we were staying. No apology or explanation as to why they gave keys to another guest was given. I went down to get the keys reprogramed and really didn’t get much of an apology at all even after telling them how unhappy I was about the situation, maybe this is normal at the property. The room wasn’t bad but not good either, I found trash and loose change on the floor.

We were very pleased with the ease of location and were able to get to the Tampa Bay Times Forum. Also having the trolly seconds away from the hotel is an asset. The staff was very helpful and pleasant during our stay. The breakfast choice was good.

Nice hotel. Within walking distance to good restaurants. Used free shuttle to go to grocery store and cruise port. Friendly staff. Daytime walking was fine. Would not have felt safe walking at night but the shuttle was great and hotel security is very good. Cannot use elevator without key cards for added security.

My wife was in town for a conf at the TCC so this hotel was chosen. The hotel has a free shuttle within a 3-mile radius from 8am-930pm which was nice and the trolly stop was across form us. Parking can be a issue on a busy night, once the upper and lower level parking is full you have to get a permit from the desk for the lot behind the hotel. Food was ok, room was clean and quite.

Overall a very good stay.

Room Tip: Higher rooms are the best, on this trip we was given a 2nd floor room and it was ok.

The hotel has gone downhill quickly. Although the bed was made, I would bet the sheets were not replaced from the prior guest. Breakfast was horrible. Something has changed since my last stay 4 weeks earlier.

This Hampton is a bit in need of repair. The biggest complaint though is the trains that run close by. Nothing says vacation than being woken at 3 AM by a train whistle! And then again at 4 AM and again at 5AM.
They also charge $8 per night extra for parking and there is a vacant lot behind the hotel that charges $3. Breakfast is standard Hampton fare.

Room Tip: Stay at a different Hampton inn
