Even though this hotel is convenient to the Hard Rock Casino, it would not be my first choice of hotels in the area. This is an older property with extremely dark rooms mostly due to the décor. If you are going to paint all the walls dark brown and light brown with heavy dark furniture then it is necessary to... More

The hotel staff was amazing, especially Charles. The rooms were clean and beds were comfy. I always stay at a Hilton brand hotel and this has become one of my favorites! This is a great location and great price.

Hotel was very clean. Excellent Breakfast Buffet. I felt good rate for the quality we received. Location was great right off of I4 and only an exit away from I75. There is a Bob Evans within walking distance. There is a travel center with a few fast food offers within walking distance also. Great Stay.

Stayed at this property for 2 nights, room with 2 queen beds. It was convenient to convention center (~15 min) and a few exits from fair grounds & casino. My room was very clean with comfy beds (I prefer slightly firm) and decent-sized bathroom with enough towels. The A/C was a little annoying because it blew across the nearest bed,... More

Staying at the Hampton Inn (Sneffer), was a excellent experience. The hotel was clean, parking was easy and the room spacious. The manager and her team were extremely helpful. The only downside (and not a big one), is the hotel is 10 miles away from the Downtown Tampa, but the traffic getting to and from was minimal. The rate for... More

We stayed at this hotel with a group for a weekend event at the Tampa Convention Center. It was a quick and convenient commute, only about 10 minutes away. The complimentary breakfast is always a bonus and the rate was a good value. The rooms were clean and the beds were very comfortable. One of our kids inadvertently left their... More

It seemed that this property was trying to cut expenses in ridiculous ways - limiting bread, tea and hot chocolate to the guest. Limiting towels in the room - we had four in our room but three towels. I had the distinct feeling that this was by management directive.

TPAHS, Manager at Hampton Inn & Suites Tampa East, responded to this review

Hello Keith, I certainly do apologize that you felt our hotel was limiting the items that you wanted from our complimentary breakfast and coffee bar. If our staff was not replenishing the items quickly enough, by all means do not hesitate to bring it to mine or the staff's attention and those items would have been quickly re-stocked. Sometimes it... More

This Hampton Inn was a clean and updated. It is located close to the State Fair Grounds and the Hard Rock Casino. The rooms were average. I found the walls thin and heard a lot of ambient sounds from the hall and adjoining rooms. I was less than impressed with the front desk staff. The representative was a bit short... More

This hotel is nice, but showing its age. The staff was very nice and most helpful. Room had all the basics and the bed was very comfortable. Pet-friendly with some nice sit-down restaurants right next door or adjacent to the hotel. The free breakfast was welcome, and the house coffees were unexpectedly good. Only 2 exits away from the State... More
