“WE had a GREAT TIME!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2009

My husband and another couple went down for the SEC tourny last week. We stayed in Ybor at the Hampton Inn. I was very impressed! The rooms were clean and nice, Very nice staff, and I felt very secure and safe. I recommend this hotel to anyone wanting the best of both worlds. Ybor and channelside. The troley station is only steps from the hotel door to take you to channel side. You can purchase round trip ticket for 5.00 dollars. Ybor night life only steps away in the opposite direction! It was such a great vacation!

We chose this hotel for it's proximity to the nightlife in Ybor City. Hotel is a typical Hampton Inn Property and everything was as expected.

Excellent beds, excellent front desk staff and close to many restaurants. They offer complimentary shuttle to/from the port, what is very convenient for cruisers.

Breakfast is average for a hotel in the US, very similar to the comfort inn breakfasts.

It would be nice to have a free shuttle to/from the airport... we paid 40USD for a taxi, kind of expensive.

  • Liked — comfy beds, complimentary inet access
  • Disliked — no shuttle to/from airport

The room was ok, nothing special. I always hate a place where you have to pay to park. Just incorporate that into the cost of the room. The pool is VERY small very limited chairs and sun. The night life seems to have become shady and nothing like it used to be. Not sure I would stay here again. Alot of other nicer places in town. The area can be be rather dangerous.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2008

The wife and I spent a night here while hitting the nearby clubs and everything was fine. The place was generally what I’d expect from a current Hampton Inn. The room was clean and in good shape and the hotel appears new and well kept. The folks at the desk were very nice and helpful. The entrance to the garage is on 6th Avenue and was a little hard to find. They also have a pedestrian gate on 7th Avenue to make getting to and from the clubs easier. The hotel was reasonably quiet. The most noise we heard was from a family with a couple of young kids in the morning. I didn’t hear any noise from outside.

The only minor gripe I had was the buffet. It ended at 10. We arrived at 9:50 and they were already out of a lot of things. We managed to scrape together enough to get by, but the folks who showed up at 10:05 were pretty much out of luck. Since this place is really tied to going out clubbing, it would be nice if the buffet was open a little later on the weekends, or at least re-filled shortly before it closes. Either way, I’d stay here again.

This hotel had a very nice, comfortable, homey feel. The staff was very helpful! I loved the lounge area. And they had a free hot breakfast in the morning. The con-you have to take a cab to get to the hotel/rent a car. The pro-they had a shuttle to take you around Ybor City and also to the cruise terminal (we stayed there the day before our cruise). The rooms were clean and very nice.
