“Average stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

This is definitely an older hampton property, the bathrooms were pretty outdated but everything was functional. When I arrived the front desk clerk was pretty ambivalent to me, didn't have the friendliest of attitudes but my check-in was quick. The bed was comfortable as expected and the carpet in the room seemed newer, but I would say that other areas of the room are probably in need of an update. It would be nice if they had a mini-fridge and/or microwave too. I specifically asked for a first floor room close to an exit, which they did accommodate. However, if you are looking for a quiet room do not stay near the elevator. I was not bothered by the noise, but you can definitely hear a lot of airplane noise and elevator noise. Not the worst stay I've had, but probably wouldn't go out of my way to stay again.

5:00 on a Tuesday night when most poeople are checking in afer a long day. The front desk clerk was no where to be found. Even after yelling "hello, is anyone here" for about 3 minutes the clerk appeared from somewhere other than behind the front desk humming away like she was just hanging out on a Sunday afternoon. Bathroom fixtures horrible. Bathtub dripped so loud I had to shut the bathroom door to get any sleep. No fridge in room. Come on Hampton Inn, this is Florida. Ice melts in minutes. Upon check out it took another Clerk over 5 minutes to get me 5 singles when I wanted some change. No sense of urgency at this hotel. Would not stay here again.

The front desk staff were very friendly and efficient. The room was very clean and cool, although the hallways were rather warm. The free breakfast was great and the breakfast person went out of her way to assist me. I highly recommend staying at this Hampton Inn.

Quick, efficient and friendly staff made my business travel run smoothly. I was even offered a cold bottle of water each morning as I left into 100 degree weather. I left with a "have a good day" and arrived with a "welcome" each day. Very friendly staff that understood the importance of service to a business traveler.

Went for just one night to see family and was really impressed iwth this hotel. The lobby was modern, and the rooms were extremely clean and smelled clean. The breakfast the following morning was wonderful and it was a great way to start off the day. I will highly recommend this hotel to others.

I usually stay at Hampton Inns when I travel for overnight softball trips. The hotel was about a 12-15 minute ride from the Ed Radice Softball Complex, so in that way it was fairly convenient. It was also close to some nearby restaurants (1.5 miles) like the Green Iguana and Logan's Roadhouse. The beds, as usual, were certainly comfortable, and although it was near the airport, I rarely heard planes taking off or landing. The first day we left the hotel at 7:30 and told the front desk that the hot water in the bathtub was leaking pretty badly, and since it was hot water, it was costing them some money. Even when we left two days later, the leak still wasn't fixed, even though I reminded them twice more. As I said, the first day we left at 7:30, and when we got back around 1:00 p.m., the room still wasn't serviced, which I thought was pretty unusual since they didn't appear to be very busy at all. The second night we returned, and there was water all over the lobby area by the coffee station, and one of the employees said that ever since they removed the carpet and replaced it with tile, they've had problems with leaks around the baseboard. Towels were placed in several places to soak up the water, so obviously my bathtub wasn't the only place that leaked. My stay was not unsatisfactory, but it wasn't a "typical" Hampton stay. It doesn't seem to be a very busy place, so you shouldn't have any problem with getting a room ($89.00 for the King study: Senior rate).

Room Tip: Even though this place is considered "Airport" -- I wasn't bothered by airport noise.
