This hotel was a wonderful value with caring, friendly staff. The 1 bedroom suite was clean with a fully functional kitchen (no oven, just hotplate, full fridge, dishwasher, etc). Laundry room across the hall was very convenient! The grounds are lovely with a beautiful spot on the Atlantic and location convenient to everything in Islamorada and beyond. Hot tub and pool were well cared for and always plenty of lounge chairs and hammocks. This hotel is not extravagant but a fantastic value for the money. Delicious complimentary breakfast, too! We got a kick out of the variety of wildlife that visited the dive-shop on the grounds for treats...friendly egrets, iguanas and squirrels. My only complaint would be to someday replace the cheap plastic stacking chairs on the balcony with something nicer and more comfortable.

Location of the hotel is excellent and the staff appears to really enjoy their jobs and care about their guests. We have stayed twice before in the 2 bedroom, 2 bath. The room is perfect size, the pool area is charming and well kept. They also have a massage person outdoors by the pool, a beautiful beach (man made) but they all are on the Atlantic side. The beach area is kept clean, lots of chairs, hammocks and the outdoor area is very tropical. It feel like you are at a resort. If you are going to Islamorada you should most defintely stay at the Hampton Inn.

The fact that this Hampton Inn had an Outback attached is wonderful. But the rooms were great, it was quiet, the view was great (but it rained) and the staff was friendly. We had made reservations prior to arriving and were checked in without delay. The weather was horrible, but the atmosphere was great. We would definitely stay again.

Everyone at this hotel was super friendly and we had a huge room with a balcony and ocean views. The lobby, breakfast area, common areas and pool are all updated, but the rooms are in serious need of updating. The beds were lumpy, there was some rust in the baths, very dated decor. I didn't think the price of the room matched the quality. I would probably stay here again, but not at the $279 night fee I paid. I also would recommend better eggs at breakfast they were a weird consistency and make soda complimentary with breakfast. I don't drink coffee and had to buy diet coke from snack shop.

Room Tip: Ocean side

Hampton is awesome across the board. Location, condition of hotel, beach, pool, everything was amazing. I will be back there soon. Food at the cont brreakfast was always good. There is a boat ramp on the property and a nice dock. There is also a facility that rents jet skis too.
