“Great staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014 via mobile

We stayed here pre- cruise. We got a great rate which included a late night airport transfer and breakfast. The room was small but fine for our family of 4 for a night. Any longer would become tight. The breakfast was good. Staff was great. In our haste to get to the port we left an electronic device in the room. We noticed it missing after boarding. We called the front desk and told us it was secured by housekeeping. We picked it up after the cruise.

Overall a good stay at a Hampton Inn, they are always reliable. This is definitely a very good location if you need to be close to the airport 5 minute drive to return rental car.

The rooms themselves were clean but very compact. All the basics were there plus the extras you find in a Hampton such as plenty of power outlets, a good iron, excellent breakfast, and fast free internet. Don't know the square footage but I would guess under 200. Had to move desk chair to get to closet, had to shove bed to pull chair out from desk. I was here 3 nights on business and did not spend much time in the room but it could get a little tight for 2 people.No business center but there is a stand up computer in the lobby to print boarding passes. One other items of note there are dehumidifiers in the room that needed to be emptied each night. At first this seemed a little odd but considering the climate it added to the comfort of the stay.

If you are walking after dark be warned their are some adult clubs in the area. Did not have any issues and they had security/parking out front of the clubs bur some might find this an issue. Also the parking lot was very full, don't expect a normal spot arriving after 9PM

I am a big fan of Hampton Inns, and as usual the service here was professional and friendly. However, the bath drains were wearing out and the rooms neat some refreshing, but were still very clean. The van driver, Joe, was fantastic.

For those flying into or out of Tampa, this is a great place to stay. Distance to airport is less than 2 miles and there is a gas station about 2 blocks away. Drive to the end of Laurel St and turn right. I have repeatedly stayed there when renting a vehicle to return at the airport. The gastank is full and there is no extra charge. The staff is friendly and greets you, the rooms are pleasant and clean and the breakfast is great. Oh, yeah, the internet is free too, and it actually works well.

Right from the beginning of our short visit to the Hampton Inn at the Airport to the early morning departure , we were not disappointed.. The reception desk personal was bright and quick… The room was fabulous and yes I mean fabulous.. not only clean but decorated so pleasing to the eye… they do not miss a quick… every comfort of home plus.. On departure the early morning breakfast was perfect for us… also the free shuttle service to the airport was done on time and right.. they have a wonderful driver by the name of Mark Griffith who makes the short trip so pleasant.. all in all… this is the place for that business or pleasure stay, near the airport.. we'll be back..

We had an early flight so wanted something close to the airport and this hotel did not disappoint. The staff was friendly and helpful. Check-in was unbelievably quick and we were settled in our room in minutes. Gave us a map of nearby restaurants and good directions. Left too early for breakfast but restful sleep in a clean, comfortable room. Lots of clean, fluffy towels and comfortable beds.
