Reviewed June 19, 2012

We stayed here for the first week of our 2week trip to Florida. We have used Hampton inns in the past and always find it to be a good brand. Really comfy beds and spacious rooms with handy laundry facilities on our floor. The free breakfast is excellent with a good choice and even FRESH fruit, it gets busy but the staff are excellent and very organised. The hotel manager is very much hands on at this property and it shows. They where replacing the hall carpets when we stayed and the whole thing was very much planned around the comfort of the guests, the guys laying the carpets where also very courteous.Well done Hampton Inn.

My son and I stayed here for one week.The rooms were excellent with super comfy beds.The bathroom door hit off the toilet when opened ,but as both of us are rather slim it was never an issue getting in and out of the bathroom.Breakfast each morning was plentiful with a good choice.The shuttle bus to Universal was very handy although we never got the return shuttle as we were always finished at the park before the first return shuttle.We walked back from Universal a couple of times and never felt it was too long a walk.The hotel is ideally situated just off of International drive and only a few minutes walk from wet and wild.We didn't have a hire car but made use of the i-trolley and lynx buses.My only criticism of the hotel is there were not enough safety boxes at reception for the number of hotel rooms.Our room number was put on a waiting list but we never got use of a safety box the whole week we were there.This meant we had to carry our passports,all our money,return plane tickets etc. with us everywhere we went which is not ideal when going round theme parks.

Dear sunshine0111
Thank you for your great review! We appreciate it! I’m glad you enjoyed our comfy beds and clean duvets. Our guests love our free shuttle to both Universal and Disney. Sorry about the lack of safety deposit boxes but I wanted to let you know we have ordered more and are in the process of putting them in. This should be complete after our first floor renovation in late summer that includes expanding our breakfast room to make room for more guests! We hope to see you again on your next trip to Orlando

Warm Regards,
Kelly Hutchinson, General Manager

We stayed in this hotel for one night. We were satisfied. The breakfast was good. It does get crowded, but they have the whole thing very organized.

The bed was comfortable. The room was clean. The refrigerator and microwave in the room were very convenient.

We would stay here again.

We also take pride in providing fresh and clean bedding for each of our guests. Our duvet covers and sheets are fresh for every arrival!

My husband and I stayed here after visiting Universal for the day. It was a great one-night stop! Check-in was very fast. We had the standard king room and it was very roomy and very clean! Bed was super comfy! Breakfast was great!! It offered scrambled eggs, biscuits/gravy, waffles, fruit, muffins, bagels, danishes, etc. We would definitely stay here again!! It is very convenient to universal studios; right down the road; no need to hop onto I-4.

I've stayed in quite a few Hampton Inns for business travel and while it wasn't bad, it wasn't the best either. Initially I requested a King Bed but upon check in was told that room wasn't available because it had issues, so I was put in a room with two Queen beds - no problem, no big deal. I was going to sleep in the bed closest to the a/c unit but upon pulling back the covers a tiny bug scurried across the sheet which freaked me out with worries of bedbugs (it wasn't - just a tiny spider or something), but it caused me to pull up the sheets to check to be sure. The mattress pad was covered with hairs and had sweat stains on it - quite gross! Fortunately the other bed was much cleaner. Putting clean sheets on a soiled mattress pad is like putting lipstick on a pig. I left a note for the maid to change the mattress pad and she did, but checking the maid's cart next morning, it is quite obvious that a change of mattress pad between guests is not a standard practice - it should be! The duvet cover is clean for each guest - isn't the mattress pad just as important?
Aside from that the bathroom was quite cramped and the water was slow coming in and going out but that is due to the age of the hotel, I imagine.
Overall, the stay was fine and the room appeared to be quite clean. The buffet met the brand standards. Oh, and I was short changed in the vending machine!

Room Tip: Check under the bottom sheet before you get in the bed!

I stayed in this hotel for 14 nights with my boyfriend in June 2011 and it far exceeded my expectations. I booked through expedia, and whilst it wasn't the cheapest hotel, it was very reasonably priced and gets a far better customer rating on expedia than hotels that are A LOT more expensive.
When we arrived after a long day of travelling from the UK we were greeted by a very friendly lady at reception who handled our check-in very efficiently. Without exaggerating it took less than a minute, it was great. The hotel and pool is very clean, our room was spotless, the photos aren't deceiving at all, it really does look that good. There is a complimentary breakfast which has a good variety of food. Two hot items usually, pastries, fruit, cereal, toast, waffles, muffins etc. plus free coffee all day. There's also a shop in the foyer which has all the essentials plus souvenirs and some snacks.
The location is great, it's literally a 2 minute walk to international drive and less than 5 minutes to the nearest i-ride stop, which is stop 7. There's also a Denny's right on the corner which is open 24 hours and a Walgreen's.
The hotel provides free shuttles to Disney and Universal, as far as I can remember there's an early morning and late morning shuttle, and a few different times to choose from in the evening also. The only problem for us was that the last shuttle leaving Disney doesn't leave late enough to allow you to watch the magic kingdom fireworks, so we got a taxi back that night. I've had this experience with other hotel shuttles as well so it is not just the Hampton Inn.
I really loved this hotel, and I will be staying here again this summer :) and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants amazing quality for a reasonable price.

We recently spent 13 nights at this hotel which was a great base for doing all the Florida parks. Our room was comfortable although slightly cramped for 2 adults and our 2 teenage children. Some of the decor needed a little attention but, overall, it represented good value for money. The breakfast was plentiful with a good selection of offerings each morning but it did get very busy in the breakfast room. Free tea and coffee were always available at any time of the day which we appreciated. All the staff were friendly and helpful and the maid did a good job in keeping our room clean each day. The free shuttle bus to Disney always turned up on time and took 30-45 minutes to get to Epcot. The time varied according to the number of other hotels it was collecting from. It also arrived to collect us from Epcot on time, which hadn't always been the case when we had previously stayed in Orlando, so that was a big bonus. We didn't use the free shuttle to Universal as we found that we could walk there from the hotel in around 25 minutes. Wet and Wild was only a few minutes walk away. There were plenty of places to eat nearby and there are also Lynx and I-Ride trolley bus stops close by.
All in all this is a very well run hotel which I would strongly recommend to anyone going to Orlando.
