Reviewed September 3, 2013

From all the hotels I've stayed at, I have to admit this has to be my favorite. If you find yourself in need of anything from information to toothpaste, the staff jumps right on it and gets anything you need.

Room Tip: Get the suite or ocean view rooms. It's like being at home.

Ms. Kara Lundgren is an incredible hospitality professional and operates a fantastic hotel. I went for a short get-a-way and the Hampton Inn & Suites Islamorada certainly was a great choice. It's highly recommended!

Excellent hotel, staff, and location on the ocean. Outback restaurant attached. Great poolside Tiki bar and entertainment. Would definitely recommend and stay there again. Close to many attractions, restaurants and activities. Be sure to ask for a room on the top (5th) floor-- the gulf, beach, and ocean views are fantastic.

We were staying with my son & daughter-in-law in Western New York and they organised a surprize 5 day break to this hotel for the four of us We flew into Fort Lauderdale and hired a car. The journey down was easy. We arrived at the hotel early afternoon. We had a large lounge with a kitchen area with fridge and microwave, two bedrooms and two bathrooms. It was comfortable and very clean. The staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was included and the range on offer was very good. The pool area was clean and led out on to a sandy area with deck chairs and hammocks. The Tiki bar served snacks and drinks all day long and this was good. The hotel has a charming gift shop and items were very reasonably priced compared to other outlets. The Hampton inn certainly had our vote and we will visit again.

Stayed there one night to break up the ride to Key West great location right on the highway, they have a beautiful pool and beach area. Breakfast is the standard continental breakfast that you get at a Hampton. We relaxed by the Tiki bar while the kids went swimming. I would definitely stay there again.

Nice staff, beautiful and clean beach and dock area. I would stay there again. Check in and out easy. Pool area and pool sparkling clean. Outback Restaurant and bar is a nice touch. Standard breakfast fair for a Hampton Inn.
