“Outstanding customer service, clean and close to everything”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

I have stayed at the Ybor City Hampton Inn in the past. This is my favorite Ybor city hotel because of how friendly and responsive the staff is and how clean they keep the hotel. Even though the hotel was finishing a complete renovation, they still managed to keep the hotel very clean and very quiet. The hotel has plenty of garage parking and outside parking across the street from the garage. Checking in was very fast with the staff being very friendly. My room and the hot tub in my room was very clean. My shower was dated and had a little bit of mold. I'm guessing they haven't renovated the showers yet. Breakfast was always great with fresh fruit, eggs, waffles, bacon, yogurt and everything you would expect in between. I used the pool once and it was very clean and maintained well. If I had an issue, the staff was very responsive and fixed the problem immediately. What sets this hotel apart from other Hampton Inn's I've stayed at in the past is the customer service. Whether you are talking to housekeeping, the front desk, the shuttle driver or the breakfast crew, everyone has pride in what they do and are very happy to talk to you. I hope Hilton takes note of this hotel because it should be a model for how a hotel should be run. A special thanks to Bonnie, Brittney, Angela and Yuval for your excellent customer service. I look forward to seeing you all on my next visit to Tampa.

Room Tip: I've been happy with all of the rooms I've had at this hotel.

We had a great experience with both the cleanliness of the hotel and the efficiency of the staff. Our only complaint was that the snacks in the commissary area were very expensive. This is a minor complaint and the only one we had.

Love the Hampton Inn in Ybor City. This is my favorite place to stay when working in Tampa. Excellent hotel in a great location. Ybor is great because there are so many places to eat and drink within easy walking distance.

Overall great staff. They attended to my needs quickly and with a great attitude. Getting to the lobby from the street was a little tricky. Lobby was nice. The breakfast bar lack luster but served the purpose.

This hotel always has great service. They always do their very best to please. Not so sure about the smell in the room hallways?? I like this location because there are many good places to eat within walking distance. The area may not be very kid friendly depending on what your cultural tolerance level is. I find it to be great people watching. The area is very central for Tampa if you are traveling for business.

Just spent one night at the Hampton Inn Ybor City. I usually don't stay in Ybor because of prices but this time I got a good rate so I decided to give it a try. So Glad I did. I did not realize they were going thru a renovation... I assumed it was in the final stages of a Grand Opening as everything looked Brand New. The lobby, and the Common area for breakfast is Beautiful.
I was upgraded to a suite which was very nice. Everything again felt brand new. I almost wondered if I was the first to stay in this room. Hell I even wondered if I was the only one in the hotel a couple of times.
As the title says, the only reason I did not give a perfect score was the fact the construction and workers were there all afternoon and evening working.
The pool area was small, but nice. The gym was small but the equipment looked to be new or almost new and in good shape.
Good security makes you feel safe and secure in the hotel. Room keys needed to access just about any door that leads outside.
My Room was comfortable and clean and overlooked the Ybor City Trolley Station. Kinda cool.
I will definitely stay here again when I come back if the rate stays competitive. Can't wait to see what it looks like when they are done.
And they DID NOT charge the parking fee since I am a Diamond Member, for all you Road Warriors out there.
Also, recommend you go to Spaghetti Warehouse for dinner. Really Good !!
