“Almost perfect”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Myself and friends stayed here last week before an upcoming cruise. The hotel itself was great. Everything was clean and the rooms were above average! The free breakfast was also really good. The desk clerk, Bonnie, however; was a different story. She was hateful and sarcastic everytime we came in contact with her. Everone else on staff went above and beyond to help us. When we returned from the cruise I called the desk to ask about the shuttle back to our vehicle and cringed when Bonnie answered my call. She was, once again, rude and sarcastic when I asked my question. I really wish I could give this review the 5 stars the hotel deserves.

The Hampton Inn in Ybor City not only is in a fun location, but the cruise and park special makes it a great deal! I stay here whenever I leave out of Tampa for a cruise - it works out so well! I stay and enjoy the sites of Ybor City for the night, then take the hotel shuttle to the cruise port and back. My vehicle is parked in a safe location and the convenience is unbeatable!

We stayed here in April for one night before I cruise,the location could not have been better.the hotel is at the end of the strip filled with restaurants Bars and clubs anything you need it's here.now back to the hotel the rooms were a nice size and very clean the staff was very helpful with things to do where to eat and so on.then in the morning the hotel shuttle takes you to the cruise port that only takes about five minutes to get to the port is that close to the hotel.so go have fun and enjoy!

My wife & I stayed at the Hampton Inn & Suites in Ybor City this last weekend.

We were in town for a concert and had heard that Ybor City is a fun place.

First, Ybor very exciting with LOTS of dining and bar options. On a weekend night the scene is a little young for us. For a younger couple it would be great.

The Hampton was like every Hampton. Clean, a good value, and friendly. We were especially that the noise and excitement of 7th Avenue did not spill over to the Hampton. Our room was quiet and calm and exactly what we wanted.

Breakfast was free and worth every penny. Parking is skimpy and the odds are good that you may end up parked on the street.

The bottom line is that we like Hamptons and would stay at this one again. We also agreed that the next time we are in the Tampa area, we will staying on the Beach.

I was very pleased with our chose. Very helpful staff. Forgot flat iron and was driven to drugmart to purchase another. Enjoyed Ybor street. Ate at the Buffalo Wings for dinner which was a popular spot and good food. Just a walk up Ybor. Free shuttle was nice to drugmart and port.
Very well scheduled and just a short time to get there. Quiet. Again nice to have breakfast included beginning the day. Love the fact that duvet covers are changed! : ) I am a Hilton Honours member and it's nice to rely on the same basics. Beds are always comfortable!

The people were very nice and I had a nice quiet stay. Limited parking though. Should be free because of that difficulty. Otherwise the room was nice and the bed was very comfortable. I only stayed one night so I didn't get around to using the internet or tv but the shower was easy to use.

We stayed overnight at the Hampton Inn while driving between FL coasts for the purpose of dining at Berns Steakhouse. The parking was convenient in the property garage ($8/night). The room was big and well appointed and clean. Nice amenities, big TV, free Internet, free newspaper and complimentary breakfast. The pool and small workout area were a nice addition.
