“YBOR Hampton Inn”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2009

This was a good hotel with the exception of the confusing front entrance off 7th Ave. We stayed here prior taking our cruise. The hotel provides a free shuttle to the port and a $5 dollar tip covered the 4 minute drive. YBOR city itself is a crazy place on a Saturday night. It is in walking distance from the hotel, even at night. I'm a cop and didn't feel naked without my gun. Highly suggest eating at Fresh Mouth restraunt, 5o's style diner. Lots of different shops on 7th Ave and if you're in the mood for a tatoo or cigar you'll be in heaven. I would steer clear of the cross-dresser though. Overall, go place to stay pre-cruise. Taxi service from the airport is a flat-rate of $25.00 versus $20.00 per person on the Super Shuttle. The room was spacious and had a comfortable bed. I would ask for a room that overlooks the port (nothing fancy though) better than the view of the vacant building on 7th Ave.

My husband & I went for a little weekend getaway. We had never been to Ybor City & we were happy to see a Hampton Inn there. We try to stay at HI's when we travel. It was clean, had a fabulous bed, breakfast was included and the staff was extremely attentive. We enjoyed walking through the historic district and took the electric streetcar to the Florida Aquarium and the Channelside area. We also enjoyed dinner at the historic Columbia Restaurant that was within walking distance. The nightlife was great for people watching. We also saw a movie at Centro Ybor. We will definitely be back.

If you are planning your 4 or 5 day cruise from Tampa, consider this hotel for Cleanliness, Value, Free Shuttle to Port, Discount Tickets to Busch Gardens, Great Nite Life for young and older adults, Free Complimentary Breakfast, Excellent Service, Etc.. Kudos to BRYAN CLANCY (Manager). When making my travel arragements, I founded it was cheaper to arrive a day earlier and leave a day later when booking a flight for my family of four, also less stressful when timing your flights. So the kids got to go to Busch Gardens Tampa, twice (Your Second Visit is Free) Do some shopping, site seeing and relaxation, to make for a wonderful vacation experience.

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
