“Average Hotel Stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2014

Normally stay at Hilton properties right outside Airport -- but were all full. Hampton is an average property and rooms were OK and comfortable. In window A/C did not work fully and struggled to keep room cool....high speed on unit did not work. Frig worked but fell out of furniture every time attempt was made to open it. Staff was very friendly and accomodating -- breakfast buffet was somewhat sparse and not what I've come to expect from Hampton chain. Overall a good hotel but will continue to stay at Hilton properties by airport.

Tip: The hotel sits in a very-high traffic area come early morning commutes so be aware and plan accordingly. Took quite a while to get from hotel just to the Interstate which is less than a mile -- also recommend if commuting to downtown take major roads and stay off of Interstate. Was much faster and easier to get to when coming out of hotel parking lot.

Great place to stay. Very clean, comfortable, good, helpful, and courteous staff. I also stay at the Hampton Inn in Tallahassee while on business. Same great staff and same great service. This trip I am going to my son's Master's Graduation Ceremony. I AM SO PROUD. IVY LEAGUE SCHOOL GRADUATE.

The staff was helpful and pleasant. We were visiting relatives for one day before heading back to NY. The 2nd floor hallway smelled like a dirty ashtray. The footstool in the room had no padding and the bed was not as comfortable as every other Hampton Inn. The breakfast attendant also pestered every guest for a good evaluation.

Thank you for selecting our hotel for your recent stay. We have listened to your comments and are in the process of reviewing our hallway air freshener system and will also look at the mattress in the room where you slept. Since our mattresses are new, this concerns me very much and may indicate a broken frame. I appreciate that you've brought it to our attention. All of your feedback is appreciated and I thank you for taking your time to submit your comments.

Hotel was comfortable. Front desk staff friendly and helpful. Complimentary water and cookies were great. Rooms were clean with comfortable beds. Breakfast was not up to Hampton Inn standards. Would stay here again

What can I say , I am so happy I stopped here . I was looking for a great location, great staff and very clean hotel, and that's exactly was I found and more. The staff is super kind and provided me with great customer service. They were able to answer all my questions, I'm from out of town and did not know the area at all. The Beach is 10 minutes away , it's such a great location, so close to the airport, and lets not forget every single restaurant you can think is minutes away. They even have a shuttle. The employees are very helpful, and greet you with a smile. The room was super clean and the perfect temperature.
I called home and told everyone this is where we will stay the next time we decide to visit in Tampa!!!! Very Happy Quest :-)) Will most definitly be staying again, Thank you Robert, Zakeya and David !!!!!!

This is a nice Hampton Inn property that I recently stayed at on a business trip. Good proximity to airport and Ricardo at the front desk was very responsive to any requests and inquiries. Would definitely stay here again when staying by airport.
