“Wonderful hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2012

This was a beautiful hotel! We had a beautiful King Suite, very clean room well supplied with everything we needed. The staff was very helpful, including the breakfast staff. The breakfast was very good, I love the waffles! I would recommend this hotel to anyone!

Room Tip: The King Suite was very spacious. It even had a full kitchen! A very nice room!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2012 via mobile

This was my first time in Tampa and I picked this place by price. If you want to be near USF Tampa or Busch Garden, perfect location. But other than that it's 30 mins from downtown Tampa and the area is older. Some restaurants, but not a huge selection. The hotel needs major renovating. Yes, the tv is a flat screen, but the furniture is worn and falling apart. The bathroom is old and the blowdryer on the wall would not dry my thick Asian hair. The only saving grace was the service of the staff! First example, I received packages at the hotel, the front desk person actually carried them to my car without even asking. Second, I was eating breakfast. This is buffet style and I got oatmeal. The staff without asking got me a spoon!

I would recommend for families, but not for business travelers.

Typically, you can count on Hampton Inn for good service and clean, comfortable rooms. This one was no exception. Nothing at all to complain about. Hampton Inn seems to deliver a consistent experience no matter where you are. The area around this hotel is quiet. Nice area for walking/running. Lettuce Lake Park is just down the street. Great place to get some exercise and see some wildlife. I got a great night of sleep and a nice complimentary breakfast in the morning. Not many restaurants in the area, but the place is convenient to the university and there are more dining options in that area, which is just a few miles away.

We had a good stay, the hotel was decent, the staff was very friendly. The continental breakfast was good, they had a good amount of options, bagels, toast, english muffins, oatmeal, fruit, muffins, eggs, and waffles. Tues-Thurs evenings they have a managers party where they serve food and beer/wine.

We used the shuttle to Busch Gardens, it took about 20 mins to get there. The shuttle was easy enough to schedule the night before we went to the park. We called for pick up, we didn't have wait very long!

All and all, the hotel was good and I would go back. .

The hotel was nice and completely acceptable, Nikole, who was in charge of the manager's reception in the evening went above and beyond to help everyone enjoy their meal. Maria Jose' in housekeeping also did a wonderful job. When I asked for a refrigerator for my room, one was brought up within 10 minutes. I did have a couple of complaints. The air conditioner did not seem to be cool enough at night and the lighting in the room was dim. Also, I noticed an odor coming out of the drains in the bathroom. Overall I was quite satisfied with the hotel and would stay there again.

This Hampton Inn was the best one we have ever stayed at. The staff here, especially Nicole and Roy, are exception. I will definitely stay here again when in Tampa. The hotel was beautiful and the set up of it was very good. The dining room was spacious and food was great. Decor was good. We got a really good deal with the hotel and Busch Gardens (including a day of meals for the family). We loved it.
