“Cozy and Accommodating Bayfront Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

My husband and I were able to get away for a couple of days to celebrate our anniversary, and decided to home base in Key Largo for a weekend. We chose the Hampton Inn Key Largo for its location and complementary breakfast. (Just down the street is the Pennekamp State Park, where we definitely recommend the half-day snorkeling trip!) And although it doesn't have the same "curb appeal" as some of the flashier hotels and resorts in the area, it is clean, well maintained and recently renovated.

The breakfast is simple but varied (waffles and other pastries / breads, fruit salad, yogurt, oatmeal, eggs and breakfast meat), and there is complementary tea and coffee in the lobby at all hours, and complementary cookies in the late afternoon. The rooms, public areas and grounds are all very charming and we enjoyed the small bay front with its swimming and kayaking access (you can rent kayaks from the front desk), and friendly fishermen who are happy to talk about their catch. You can also watch some beautiful sunsets while lounging out on the chairs provided. Just be warned that the waterfront becomes a huge smoking area after dark, so we didn't stay too long for lack of fresh air. Right next door is another small park with a short boardwalk into the mangroves where you can watch the land crabs scuttle about. There are also plenty of anoles (native) and baby green iguanas (not native) underfoot. We didn't see any manatees this trip unfortunately, but another guest said they made an appearance a few days before our arrival.

The first night of our stay, we had a couple of problems with our particular room. The walls are not at all sound proof, and we could clearly hear the guests on both sides. On one side was a family with little children, and on the other side were several enthusiastic adults who liked to stay up late and get up early. So unfortunately we didn't get much sleep that night. We also couldn't get our wi-fi connection to work unless we were standing in the entryway next to the door. When I brought up the situation to Shanquell at the front desk the next morning, she offered a complementary upgrade to premium wi-fi service and to a different room for our remaining night (since both of our neighbors were booked for the rest of the week). We had to pack up all our things and leave them in the room on a luggage cart (to be moved into our new room after it was cleaned and while we were out and about), but we couldn't hear our neighbors at all in the second room - so it was worth the trouble.

Overall we had a nice stay and would recommend the Hampton Inn Key Largo for its location, facilities, amenities and friendly, helpful staff.

If staying in Key Largo... you have to stay here! I'm in the hospitality business & I must say this Hampton has the most friendly staff! From Don (& Mango) - housekeeping - front desk - maintenance - breakfast...All receive an A+!!! This is also a beautiful hotel & a great middle spot since we also visited Miami & Key West. Will definitely stay here again if coming back to the Keys & refer friends & family as well!
(Only issue we had was with the internet. The signal went in & out all the time. Other that that...all excellent!)

Very clean, nice amenities, hotel staff super nice. All bed linens, including duvet covers are washed between all guests. The bathroom was very nice with a huge open shower! Continental breakfast wasn't bad. Hotel has a tropical feel to it. Would definitely stay here again!

Every time we stay here we have the best time!! Manager Christina Gilbert makes sure her guests have everything they need. Don and parrot Mango at the beach bar serve delicious mango smoothies:). Great for anyone family friendly. Watch amazing sunsets from the beach, relax in the pool, get a nice work out in their fitness room or rent a kayak. There is always something to do if you want to or you can relax. We are Repeat visitors for years and we will be back. We travel with a teen and she loves it!

The Hotel is superb! Quiet and very relaxing. We checked from June 22, 2014 for 9 nights with Lucy at the front desk who was very friendly and courteous. She set us up with the rooms we wanted and explained the hotel layout. We had two rooms. One for my wife and I and one for my two teenage children. The rooms are exceptionally clean and very comfortable. The beds are comfortable. Our room was directly over the pool and it was quiet although we were not in the hotel for most of the day. Our kids had a room facing the rear parking lot on the first floor and it was great for loading and unloading all of our gear each day into the car. Breakfast is a FULL spread and Jeanie who sets up breakfast works very hard to ensure that everything is always available. Jeanie offered suggestions for area attractions and was an incredibly helpful and very friendly young lady. She truly cares about her breakfast guests and it shows. The dinning area was always clean and the buffet spread had many choices to choose from. Both hot and cold. For that matter, the entire staff is very friendly, courteous and cares about their guests. I kept my boat trailer in the parking lot at no charge and they never hassled me about were it was parked. I loved this hotel and it deserves a 5 star rating. I will return again without any hesitation. "Ron Y"

We just came home from our 4th year of visiting this hotel. We had a fabulous time with Don, Mango & Paul. Everyone was extremely friendly, always had smiles on their faces. We will be going back in September and continue to make this our annual vacation spot!!

Room Tip: We always get a room on the pool side, it makes it easy to go to the tiki bar and the beach.
