“Great staff, okay rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

First of all let me say that I concur with the other reviews on here that this hotel has some of the best and most friendly staff members I've ever been around. They're always saying hello and the Australian lady at breakfast in the morning was extremely sweet to my young children and my wife and helpful in getting us squared away.

The location of the hotel is right between the Westshore and International Mall and very close to most anything you need. Breakfast in the morning was pretty good and I even opened up extra seating in the meeting room when it got crowded.

I only really has two complaints and they aren't major: the first is that there was always a funky musty smell in the hallway going to the lobby on the first floor. And the second was that we actually had to wear flip flops around our room because the floor was very sticky for some reason. I put my shoes on and my feet stuck to the bottom of the soles.

However I could not get over the friendliness of the staff and everyone, even the shuttle drivers were very nice and welcoming.

We stayed here for a week. The staff was almost like family when we left.

The breakfast selection was wonderful and we enjoyed eating and chatting with the staff.

My only complaint is that when we left my husband and I were covered in bedbug bites all over our legs.

We really enjoyed our stay except for the bedbugs.

I am a little alarmed to hear about bedbugs. I can assure this will be something I will personally check into, although, we haven't had any complaints of bedbugs.

Otherwise, we are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us! We hope the next time you are in Tampa, you will choose our Hotel.

Very happy and friendly staff... Never been to a property where everyone says good morning can we help you with anything. I got picked up from the airport in a quick turn around time. Was offered to be taken to get something to eat if I was hungry which I was so worked out great.. I enjoyed my stay and definately will be back again ...

Stayed for only one night and the driver and night auditor made me feel so welcome. I got picked up from the airport by the nicest man. He was kind considerate and really made the passengers feel welcome.

My name is Alan Crellin. I'm a regular at this fine newly renovated Hampton Inn. Paul the GM, his AVP Matthew and their very attentive staff are all so extremely friendly and helpful. They have created a first class service hotel that makes business travel a whole lot easier and more pleasurable. Thank you all guys especially Jenn!

The hotel has good rooms and is in a quiet neighborhood. Good access to a number of restaurants. Staff is very helpful and is five minutes from the airport. Rooms are a little dated but overall a very good experience
