“Probably poor timing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2014

We stayed here as it was touted with proximity to Busch Gardens. (It really isn't that close, but hotel provides excellent shuttle service). Huge downside: We didn't have hot water for the three nights of our stay. The hotel said a water main broke. The pool also wasn't heated. Be advised there are no restaurants in the area with exception of a Bob Evans which you'll need a car to get to. Staff was nice and breakfast (included) good. No central air but individual air units in room. They cycle on and off which may bother some.

Very good breakfast menu. Also had a dinner buffet Monday through Thursday that was adequate for a quick meal. The staff in the dining room was friendly and efficient. The fresh from the oven chocolate chip cookies were delicious! The all-day coffee bar was appreciated.

We have stayed here about a dozen times in the last 8 years. In this past year they have upgraded several things here, including: room door locks now use proximity cardkeys, the breakfast area and exercise room have been revised/upgraded, and carpet in rooms seemed new. This location is close to Busch Gardens and Lettuce Lake County park.

The Hampton Inn-Suites have the most pleasant personnel from the welcome receptionist to the breakfast area. We are vegetarians and the staff gave us scrambled eggs without ham - surprised and pleased. The suite was clean, spacious - we rested after a wet-cool day watching our UF softball girls win their tournaments.

We could not have been more satisfied with our recent 6-night stay and our suite at the Hampton Inn & Suites Tampa-North. The members of the staff were courteous, friendly, and helpful. Our suite was spacious and clean. We had 6 adults in the suite, and we all slept well. The two adults who slept on the pull-out sofa said it was very comfortable! Having a full and furnished kitchen with a full-size refrigerator and microwave was a real plus. The breakfast buffet had a good variety of selections each morning. I have celiac disease and must eat gluten free, and there was always something there I could safely eat. The dinner hour buffet was an added bonus, and we enjoyed the convenience of being able to eat dinner there in the hotel. Lastly, I appreciated Pam Calhoun's cheerful greeting each morning and her helpfulness with my questions about gluten-free items. Would we stay here again? Absolutely!

We just stayed here. So quiet. I never am able to sleep in hotels on my first night but did here!the rooms were immaculate and the staff nice. Only problem is weird layout and front desk didn't tell us which elevators to go to --odds and evens in diff places.
Breakfast was good. We were given a suite so great for family!
Location kinda remote but worth staying for all the plusses!!
