Hampton Inn & Suites Lakeland-South Polk Parkway
Ranked #1 of 33 Hotels in Lakeland
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 25, 2013

We stayed here for the weekend in April for the fourth time since it opened. We visit Lakeland a lot due to family in the area and prefer staying at the Hampton Inn & Suites rather than imposing on relatives. The location is perfect -- right in the heart of a fabulous shopping and dining area called Lakeside Village. Our favorite restaurants and favorite new bar are located in the Village so after a day with family we are able to end the fun at any of the many offerings then simply walk to our room. The area itself is very pretty, clean and safe. The hotel itself is everything wonderful you expect from a Hampton Inn. Beds are amazing, rooms are big, breakfast is plentiful and staff is always extremely friendly. This past weekend we were there was the same weekend as the Sun and Fun Fly is so the property was totally booked but we never felt like it was. We also had the extra little touch of being able to see the planes fly in from our third floor room BUT no noise! We definitely recommend this hotel and will of course stay here again. (But maybe NOT during the Fly In as rates in Lakeland "take off" during that period.)

Four years in a row? We cannot thank you enough for being so loyal. As you pointed out, Lakeside Village is the nicest setting for a hotel. That added to the wonderful product that Hampton is, makes our hotel an ideal location for a variety of guests. We truly appreciate the positive comments. Rates do go up during Sun&Fun all across town, but we are very competitive nevertheless. We look forward to seeing you again. Sincerely,
Quentin

Chose this hotel because it was near SEU for a college tour. Squealed for joy when we entered the property and saw numerous shops and restaurants all within walking distance. Felt safe enough to send Teen daughter and friend out bathing suite shopping. They had a blast swimming in the outdoor pool that night. Can't wait to stay here again next year.

The noises in my 3rd floor room were minimal, unlike many hotels. Although this is not a five star hotel, I gave it a 5 rating because the price was good for a hotel of this quality. We were very comfortable in the rooms with very clean beds and constant room temperature. The breakfast was nice, and the area had lots of nice shops and restaurants within walking distance.

Second year my friend & I have stayed here, using a group rate. We would pay the normal rate to stay at this particular Hampton Inn. The location is wonderful - can walk to any number of restaurants, stores & movie theatre. You can even catch a bus as the stop is a short walk thru a few parking lots. The hotel is maybe 3 miles from the Lakeland Center & close to the polk Parkway. Breakfast buffet was very good especially for a do-it yourself breakfast bar: waffles, scrambled eggs, cereals, fruit, danish, breads. I liked that guests need a key to enter the rear & side exit doors - gave me a good sense of security. Room was clean, refridgerator kept everything fresh.

Room Tip: We loved the king room with sofa & kitchenette overlooking the rear parking area - good to see t...

Thanks for the review. We are delighted to hear that you came back to us. A loyal customer really makes us proud. I don't know if you had a chance to experience it, but there has been a great addition to Lakeside Village: a Brass Tap bar offering more than 300 beers on draft along with live music.
We hope to see you again soon.

The accommodations are average but not average price - the price is much too high for this average hotel. I don't recommend this hotel for this reason. There is upscale shopping in walking distance and good restaurants, but that doesn't make it worth double the price for me.

Room Tip: Didn't notice much difference in rooms.

Hello and thank you for staying with us. I am saddened to see that you thought we were overpriced. January through end of April is our high season here in Lakeland. We are priced competitively with all the other hotels in town. Given our upscale location, along with all the free amenities including Hot breakfast, we truly believe our rate is competitive. I hope that you will consider us in the future.
Sincerely,
Quentin

Spent a week in Lakeland to watch college baseball. Hotel was terrific- excellent service from Miss Mary at the desk and all staff. Very clean, big rooms, really comfy king bed, and great thermostat control! Good free breakfast and coffee, skip the eggs, stick to the waffles. Area is very well attended and kept clean. The hotel's location is excellent, right off the highway but surrounded by a very nice outdoor shopping area. Great for sunshine walking, window shopping, and happy hours. On a rainy day eat ice cream and catch a movie. The only drawback was that ESPN kept going out on the TV, weird reception as other reviewers have reported. Tips: 24 hr coffee/tea in the lobby, and yummy choc chip cookies in the afternoon, right out of the oven; go have a meal at Grillsmith, you won't be disappointed. Definite return next year!

Thanks a lot for the review. It appears that you enjoyed your week to the fullest, taking advantage of everything the hotel and its surroundings have to offer. Mary is in fact terrific, thanks for recognizing her. We apologize about the reception on the TV going out. Our TV system had a defective part, but it has been repaired. We are thrilled to hear that you would come back...

This hotel is very comfortable, very clean and a very pleasant place to stay if you are doing business in the Lakeland area. Shopping is close by, in case you forgot something at home, many good restaurants of many types and even a movie theater if you have time for that. Location is near the highway, so it's easy to get to.
