“Location was super because there was so much to do close to the hotel!”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

After having some bad hotel experiences with unchained hotels I decided to go back to what I know and can expect form Hampton Hotels. I was not disappointed. We stayed 5 nights for my daughter's volleyball tournament and to visit Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure. Service was efficient and friendly. This is an older hotel, but they are doing their best to update it. The lobby/breakfast is very modern and inviting. We had 3 teens and one adult in the room for 5 days and it began to get pretty cramped. The rooms were a little narrow and the bathroom was small, but the vanity outside the bathroom helped. Having a refrigerator and microwave was wonderful. We brought microwave popcorn and mac and cheese which saved a lot of money on snacks. We could also eat our left overs the next day which saves another meal. We had a few issues with a blinking light that was not caused by the bulb, but when I told the desk they sent someone to repair it very quickly. The breakfast was always fresh with lots of variety. It does get crowded so have someone find a spot to sit and take turns getting the food. Make sure you are not late. when they say ends at 10:00 they mean it. Everything is put up and gone. The location was close enough to the OCCC where my daughter was playing and had so much to do within walking distance or a quick drive. One thing to consider, if you are planning to lay out, the hotel blocks the pool in the summer and does not get on the pool until 11:30 or so. One sunbather put her lounge chair in the parking lot where there was sun until it got on part of the deck and pool. This is important to parents when your child is in the late pool/bracket/wave and you only have limited time in the morning at the pool. I was very pleased with Jay who helped us get discounted Universal tickets. He was very friendly, and helpful without being pushy and he got us a better deal than we found anywhere else. My son and nephew are older teens and were able to use the shuttle while I was with my daughter at volleyball. They would usually get on the 10 or 11 shuttle and never had an issue of not having room. I was very pleased with the hotel and the location. A few other members of our team stayed at some other hotels and there service and locations were not as good. Another reason to use the shuttle to Universal is that parking is $17 for basic and $22 for Preferred a day! Park one of the days when you want to stay late because the last shuttle departs at 8pm. If we return to Orlando we will stay here again!

First of all, don't be fool, this hotel is not within walking distance to Universal Studio...You will need to drive 3 minutes or take the free shuttle bus.

Nice and friendly staffs... Good breakfast, clean, guest laundry machine on every other floor...

I will strongly recommend it if you do not want to pay the premium for the on-site hotel...

Nice staff, always greeted us and helped us feel welcome. Fitness room not a priority--treadmill not working then when fixed developed another problem. Hot tub not functioning--was that due to it being July? Would've liked to soak after walking all day. Ticket person was not very friendly although she might not work for the hotel. She got frustrated because we couldn't decide on something right away and because we bought tickets online for less.

As always good breakfast and free shuttle to universal. Room was Average. Service was great. And Guest laundry on every other floor was big help. Rooms can use upgrade. Bed was nice. Proximity to Universal is great. Its a 20 minute walk. Not advisable in Summer. Close to 3 Halal Restaurants if you are a Muslim. Close to downtown as well.

Room Tip: Next to Wet & wild. Also 3 Halal Restaurants within 5 minute drive.

Green Features: Recycle towels and sheets. Not sure about laundry appliances though. Did use energy efficient lighting.

All together it was a good stay. Lots of foreigners (mainly Slavic/Russian dialects spoken by staff and visitors - we heard thar more than we heard English lol) but the stay itself was a comfortable one. Front desk was friendly, and no matter how much hot cocoa we asked for they gave it to us w a smile. Breakfast was very good both in variety& quality. Location was great just minutes away from Universal Studios etc. Oh and Cudos to the Free Shuttle Service driver -Medesto I think his name was, he was very entertaining and informative and his dedicated service really stood out in a positive way - thank you.

Stayed here 1 night whilst travelling for work.

Arriving quite late, check in was great and quick. The staff were very attentive, and asked if they could help with my bags, which after a long trip makes life easy.

The room was comfortable, though I think the building is a bit old, and showing signs of its age. Scuffed paint, tired carpet, older fittings. Nevertheless the room was clean and warming. One thing I really like about the Hamptons is most have shower screens, instead of curtains.

I left before breakfast, but the rooms were quiet, and carparking was easy and access though the side doors makes it easy to get the luggage to the car.

Room Tip: Try and get a room near the side doors on the ground floor. Easy to get in and out to the car.

We stayed at this hotel for five nights. Our room was on the fifth floor and was very quiet. There were five people in our party and I found the room to be spacious enough for all of us. The fifth person used a rollaway. The room itself was clean and comfortable but the beds are hard. The staff was friendly and helpful. The free breakfast in the morning was a good value. The furniture in the lobby/breakfast area is nice, bright and cheerful. The coffee is always fresh and available. They had white chocolate macadamian nut cookies for free in the lobby that were to die for. Very yummy. There are plenty of outlets in the room for your electrical devices. It was a very hot week in Florida so we were happy the air conditioner worked great in the hotel and room. The duvets will keep you toasty at night even with the air on at it's coldest setting. There were four plump pillows to each bed. There is a small microwave and fridge in the room so that was useful for snacks. There is a convenience store located next to this hotel for your late night cravings. The internet was fast and free. There is self parking. We would get back late at night and there would always be at least one open parking spot. If you leave the room in the afternoon, you need to let someone know if you will need your room serviced or you may not get it. We left late every day and only got maid service once on the day before we left. The bathroom is very small but was not a problem for us. There is another sink outside the bathroom which helps. The only negative thing we had a problem with was that the water pressure while showering was very low which took us twice the amount of time to shower as usual. That was annoying. Overall it is a great hotel for a good value and I would not hesitate to stay here again.
