“Great Hotel but beware of Peak fishing season”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

I'm a faithful Hampton Inn supporter and always pleased with the quality. The prices are usually higher but I think worth it. However, in Okeechobee I was charged $153/night (in Okeechobee???) when I normal pay $90-109 per night. I stay at this one a lot because its close to my branch business. They claimed that it was peak season, though the hotel was far from being full. I would expect that they would treat someone who stays there so much better in these circumstances. I would check expedia to see how it compares with the Holiday Inn Express down the road.

Dear Lee G,

Thank you for taking the time leave a review regarding you recent stay with us at the Hampton Inn Okeechobee, as we appreciate all feedback. I can understand your concern about our rate, as it may have been lower in the past. Okeechobee is a seasonal city, hotel rates are typically higher during the first four months of the year due to demand. Both of the major hotels in Okeechobee, the Hampton Inn and the Holiday Inn Express are offering very competitive rates. Even some of the smaller motels in the city are offering very high rates. We want to make sure you get the most value for your money, which is why our HOT On The House Breakfast is included in the room rate, along with free hi speed internet access to our fitness center and a heated swimming pool. Unfortunately, we do not have set rates, and they are subject to change. I know you said you stay at our hotel as is is close to your place of business, if you would like to discuss a negotiated rate, based on the volume of room nights you will produce throughout the year, I will be happy to talk with you.

We understand that you have other choices , and thank you for making Hilton family of hotels your preferred choice.

I called to get reservations and spoke to Richard who was a DELIGHT! Very accommodating, helpful and enthused about his tasks. I booked because of his attitude.
Upon checking in, I was happy to see the same Richard. VERY nice again. Terrible helpful, even going so far as to secure some items in the hotel freezer for me.
The room was spotless. Very well appointed and lovely. Couldn't ask for a nicer stay. If we ever go back, I will be sure to book us there. We didn't use the pool but it looked very clean and inviting. We did use the on site laundry and happy to not have to cruise town to look for one. Very happy with our stay there.
When we left the following morning, the landscaper was out, trimming shrubs. He offered to help load luggage for me! Service above and beyond!

Room Tip: ask for parking lot side, away from Applebees.

My family stayed here while on a vacation/fishing trip. It was great. Room was clean, wife felt safe and comfy, and the truck/boat parking was great! It is better lit than any of the other hotels in Okeechobee.

The staff is always pleasant and helpful beginning with housekeeping to the breakfast lady.The desk people are very willing to assist in anything I have asked them such as places to dine or even directions and that gives me more time to fish!

Right in the middle of everything in Okeechobee, a walk through the parking lot to Applebees. A very clean (like new) hotel with a wonderful, friendly staff. Affordable with breakfast and internet included. If you're a fisherman and you have a trailer and a boat, there is parking available. Overall: a very nice hotel at a reasonable price, what else could you ask for?

Disappointed our little pet dog could not stay with us. She is extremely well behaved but we had to leave her at our son's home. We will probably return visits in the future unless we can find a facility to keep our doggie with us.

We stay at this hotel several times throughout the year on business. This is a great hotel with a wonderful breakfast. It is clean, safe, and looks good. The staff is helpful and Mrs. Lois at the breakfast area is a real blessing. I think it has just changed ownership and hope the new owners will keep it just as nice as it has been for years.
