“Exceptionally Clean with a Five Star Staff!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

I had my apprehensions, without knowing the area, but this place was great! We arrived close to midnight, after a long ride (7 hrs) from the other side of the State... Checked in with no problem. Room (2 double beds) was exceptionally clean, but as soon as I used the commode...it almost overflowed! Went down to the front desk, and asked to change rooms....no questions asked, no debating, the gentleman behind the desk just pleasantly changed my room to another! That room was as clean and nice as the first! Not huge, but well laid out and the beds were so comfortable you didn't want to leave! SNOWY WHITE duvet covers on the beds, too! The Continental breakfast had a ton of options, from typical OJ & steamy hot dee-licious coffee, to croissants, yogurt, fresh fruit and waffles! Would have had breakfast both days we were there, but we're visiting with relatives and went to Lenny's (a few doors down)...which is a totally fabulous breakfast place - great breakfasts, reasonably priced, with a wonderful wait staff!! Only drawback was transiting US19, but can't fault the Hampton or Lenny's for that...and it's easy enough to gain access from going around Gulf to Bay...just check your directions to make sure you take the service road closest to the underpass! It's a one way Service road that runs parallel to 19!

Room Tip: If you have someone older, who has trouble walking, ask for a room either close to the elevator, or...

Traveled to Palm Harbor for Thanksgiving and chose this hotel. Really nice room, grounds beautiful, heated pool, hot tub, and free breakfast (more than continental) Price, was VERY reasonable, employees helpful and polite. Will definitely stay here again. construction on US 19 confusing, but could not hear from inside the room. Good experience.

We stayed one night after arriving into Tampa for the start of our vacation. We initially had some trouble getting to it because of the roadworks on Highway 19, but once we figured out how to reach it, there was no trouble - and also no noise at all from the busy road, so the soundproofing system must be very good. The room was spacious and very clean with lovely fresh duvets and a brand new hairdryer in the room. The pool area is wonderful - a large pool with many comfortable sunloungers and separate waterfull/tub, all surrounded by immaculately kept gardens and a small putting green and gazeba area. A nice touch is the dozen or so rocking chairs on a shaded patio area. I wish we had had more time to enjoy this! The breakfast was also very good with a good selection of items including waffles (the waffle pans were brand new and sparkling), omelettes, muffins etc. I would certainly come back to this hotel again as it is also centrally located for the malls further up the US 19 and also not so far from the beach area. A really nice stay.

From start to finish, this was a bonus hotel. Chosen by the almost proverbial "Eeny, meeny, miney, mo" method, the elegance to cost ratio was amazing! All of the attributes of a Hilton property for a fraction of the cost of a normal Hilton stay made this 10 times as nice as "budget" hotels charging only a few dollars less. The quality of furniture, the comfort of pillows and mattresses, the attention to detail in nearly every area (except the poorly copied room map!), the eagerness to serve, the hot / cold breakfast with a dedicated attendant constantly cleaning, restocking the food, and emptying the trash, the well-cleaned and available pool, the nearly meticulous landscaping...Very nice! And for those of you who might scoff, the price was just $69 per night for a Fri-Sun stay.

Room Tip: The general rule of thumb: Upstairs and away from the parking lot. Here, that didn't even matt...

Wish the water pressure was stronger. Nice breakfast buffet style. Liked the scrambled eggs with ham and cheese. Would have liked a newspaper, although it was a Sunday.
The pool area was immaculate!! Bring the children for the pool floats.
Beds and pillows very comfortable if you like down and softness.
Would have liked a mini frig.

Nice Hampton with great beds, and excellent staff. Breakfast was more than expected and changed daily. Pool area was very nice. Down side was the highway construction causing noise and confusion. A bit of a ride to beaches but plenty of dining options and shopping close by. Need vehicle to get anywhere. Not walker friendly.

I like this place. The value is very good. Prices are usually pretty good. I like staying here and then driving to the beach. It is not a far drive at all, maybe 10 minutes depending on traffic. Really worth the savings compared to staying close to the beach. The hotel is very nicely landscaped, the pool area is very inviting. Breakfast is quite nice, friendly staff. The only complaint is the rooms, they are a little smaller than I would like. They are nice and clean, just small. Will definitely stay again.
