“Close to Disney and Sea World”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

We chose this hotel based on its excellent location. We did not expect the full hot breakfast. This was a pleasant surprise. The room was furnished with a microwave and refrigerator with two queen size beds and very comfortable. There is another selling point where they launder the duvet covers every day. The rooms seem to have been soundproofed after a recent renovation. We have never had bad Hampton Inn experience anywhere in the country.

We normally stay on-site at a Disney Vacation Club resort, but we have used our 2013 points and decided to try a hotel to make it easier to also visit Universal. In my opinion, here are the pros and cons, particularly with respect to this Hampton Inn vs staying on-site at Disney:

Pros:
Much larger room, Much less expensive, Easier check-in and parking, Free breakfast, Better access to non-Disney restaurants, Much easier access to Universal and Sea World, Faster and easier access to airport, Much more quiet, Much more convenient to access grocery stores (after you eat heavy meals at theme parks for several days, the importance of this will become more evident).

Cons:
Less richly themed (obviously), Access to Disney parks much less convenient (especially Magic Kingdom, which is a serious pain to access if not staying at a Disney resort), Much smaller and much less exciting pool, Much less of an immersive Disney experience.

In my opinion, this hotel was an excellent value. We definitely prefer staying at the Disney resorts, but this Hampton Inn is a great choice at under 1/3 the cost per night!

It's not a 4/5-star hotel, so don't expect a grand entrance. Their space is efficiently used without waste of space. It's perfect for those who want a nice, clean, comfortable place to recoup after a long day outing. It's not shabby either. The check-in desk service people are all very professional, responsive, helpful & efficient. They have everything you need. The breakfasts include a few hot choices along with continental choices. The coffee is excellent. I'm a stickler for cleanliness, & I felt comfortable in all aspects in the room & throughout the hotel, no ick factor anywhere. The room & the pool are not huge nor the concierge desk, but they all work great. Complementary shuttle service to Disney worked out well for us. We made the set schedule work for us. There was only one time when the shuttle was 15 minutes late. They service another hotel, so they're big buses. We asked for transport services to SeaWorld & the airport. All was done for us right away. They usually don't call Yellow/Checker cab, I'd say for good reason. We used a taxi cab from the airport, & we had to tell the guy how to get to the hotel with our GPS. The 2nd yellow cab driver was on his cell phone most of the drive. Neither of these drivers was called by the hotel... we sought them out on our own. The hotel was a great choice close to Disney & SeaWorld.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights last week and loved it. Check in and check out were both a breeze and the front desk staff each time were superb... Courteous, and interested in what we were up to and how we enjoyed our stay...heck, we even received an email from Ashby wishing us well and a safe drive home after we had left. I was really impressed with the beautiful lobby and eating area. The pool area was lovely too, although it was too cool to actually swim we did enjoy sitting out there. Our room was spotless, which is very important to us, so we were not disappointed there. It was great and appreciated also to have a fridge and microwave in the room. The location is great too actually...nice to be a little bit away from the excitement and congestion of the main road and a great location if heading to the east end of International Drive (ie for shopping the outlet mall or going to Universal) as you can just head out Palm Parkway/Turkey Lake Road and miss a lot of traffic, congestion, and lights. Was perfect. We would definitely recommend this hotel to others and stay here again sometime in the future. Thank you for a great place to wrap up our vacation before heading home.

Great location not too far outside Disney boundaries. Free basic breakfast is a plus in this area. Check-in was quick and easy and rooms were clean. Only stayed for a quick night when passing through Orlando, but would be a good property for a Disney visit.

We stay in lots of Hamptons throughout the year...and this by far was the biggest disappointment! We needed a room for one night during spring break because the resort we were staying at the first week and the resort we were staying at the second week could not accommodate us for Saturday night. Usually we are greeted cordially and offered drinks and snacks as gold HHonors members. That evening the person checking us in seemed frustrated and confused. I realize that we were there during a very busy weekend but he seemed very unsure of himself. Instead of the two bottles of water and two small snacks we are usually provided with, he offered me either one drink....or one snack. When I expressed surprise at not being provided with one for each of us, he said it was the company policy and that he had to account for every item given out, and he showed me the list he had to compile. Again, I understand that this hotel is often full of families with children....and that they probably could not hand out snacks for an entire family but why bother to hand out anything to gold members if you have to be so stingy. The rooms were OK...not the greatest Hampton.....tonight staying at a great Hampton on Jekyll Island....courteous....clean.....and great location.

Checked in late after drive up from South Fl. Very easy. Front desk was nice. Room lacked some decor but was clean. TV was real clearand in HD. A nice feature. A/c worked well and hotel is quiet. Close to Disney and other attractions. Hotel food was ok. But it was free. What do u expect. Received extra pillows when asked. Thought the 25 charge for a cot was a little steep but it is what it is. I would stay again.
