“Nice hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2014

We stayed for one night whilst visiting Tampa. It's easy to find and looks nice.
Parking was ok but not loads of it and we did struggle to get a space when returning to the hotel in the afternoon.
Quick and easy check in and out. No problems.
The room was lovely. Massive room and super big bed. Plenty of places to put things and hang clothes. We had a good nights sleep.
Breakfast next morning was ok. It's free but still a fair bit of choice. My only gripe was it's all served on paper plates and plastic cutlery but I think I'm just been fussy!
I would stay here again but the area round the hotel felt a little unsafe. Not sure if it's because we were tourists or it wasn't very busy but we read great things about ybor city and were abit disappointed. Don't let that put you off the hotel though!

Stayed June 2014, traveled as a couple

Ybor City Hampton Inn is located right in the heart of Ybor City. The Inn has great rooms and the service is impeccable. I was there for parathyroid surgery, scheduled at the Norman Clinic. The hotel staff made me and my family feel very comfortable. I only wish I had longer to visit. The staff are very helpful, for example; I needed a razor and shaving cream at 4:30 in the morning. I though I would have to buy it; NO, Wrong, it was complimentary. Again great service.

Great hotel if you want to stay in walking distance of restaurants at Ybor City. We took Amtrak in from Jacksonville, FL and were able to walk to the hotel from the train station in just a few minutes. Breakfast included w/ room is a great value. Le Creperia in Ybor City was excellent for lunch.

Now that I have your attention... If you are considering staying here... DO IT!. Great Staff, Great Breakfast with some of the BEST BACON I have had in years (no lie). It was thin, crisp, fresh and not greasy. It was meat candy... seriously. The pool was refreshing and clean. Loved having an evening swim. Coffee is always available and always fresh. I recommend the 'Robust' . Just love this Hotel!

I was here over the weekend with two teen girls for a concert event in Ybor. I haven't been to Tampa since college had heard mixed reviews about staying in the area. This hotel was perfect for everything we needed. This Hampton sits on the tail-end of the main street in Ybor City; which is a good thing, as the street can get pretty rowdy at night. There was garage parking ($8 a day). It is located right off one of the main highways so navigation was super-easy. The hotel itself appears to have been re-done and they are still making improvements. The lobby area is modern and check-in was easy. There are only two ways to get into the property and each require a room key to get in. Only people with room keys can operate the elevators which was a big plus for me safety wise. Breakfast was included in our stay and was the standard eggs, sausage, fruit, oatmeal, bagels, pastries, yogurt, cereal and waffle makers that are available at the same level of hotel. The rooms were large in size and the hotel uses Nutrogena bath products. The thing the stood out the most for me at this property was the staff. EVERYONE was helpful, nice, polite and seemed to love their jobs. Especially the breakfast food service women. The hotels prices for bottled water, sodas, beer and food were also very reasonable. The location of this hotel is perfect - you can walk the entire street down to the Columbia restaurant easily - I didn't need to us my car for the two days I was there. There is a pool area but it is very small - not the type of place to hang out and catch rays. Oh wait, I do have one complaint. The hallways in the room areas were very humid and hot. I'm not sure if there was an AC issue while I was there or that is just the way it is. Individual rooms were fine temperature wise.

We visited Hampton Inn at Ybor City before and after our Carnival Cruise. It is in a great location with free shuttle service to and from the pier, and was quite speedy. There is a Italian and Pizza place that delivers quite quickly to the hotel with very reasonable prices. The breakfast was very good and they have a 24 hour coffee station. We enjoyed it very much! Would highly recommend.
