“Some Disappointments”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

I usually stay at Hampton Inns when I travel for overnight softball trips. The hotel was about a 12-15 minute ride from the Ed Radice Softball Complex, so in that way it was fairly convenient. It was also close to some nearby restaurants (1.5 miles) like the Green Iguana and Logan's Roadhouse. The beds, as usual, were certainly comfortable, and although it was near the airport, I rarely heard planes taking off or landing. The first day we left the hotel at 7:30 and told the front desk that the hot water in the bathtub was leaking pretty badly, and since it was hot water, it was costing them some money. Even when we left two days later, the leak still wasn't fixed, even though I reminded them twice more. As I said, the first day we left at 7:30, and when we got back around 1:00 p.m., the room still wasn't serviced, which I thought was pretty unusual since they didn't appear to be very busy at all. The second night we returned, and there was water all over the lobby area by the coffee station, and one of the employees said that ever since they removed the carpet and replaced it with tile, they've had problems with leaks around the baseboard. Towels were placed in several places to soak up the water, so obviously my bathtub wasn't the only place that leaked. My stay was not unsatisfactory, but it wasn't a "typical" Hampton stay. It doesn't seem to be a very busy place, so you shouldn't have any problem with getting a room ($89.00 for the King study: Senior rate).

Room Tip: Even though this place is considered "Airport" -- I wasn't bothered by airport noise.

I usually love Hampton Inn, but I was very disappointed in this one. The staff was great, but the facilities were in dire need of deep cleaning and upgrading. By far, not your typical Hampton Inn. This appears to be an older place bought out by Hampton Inn.

This is a great hotel and was worth the money. It was very close to the airport and stadium. My husband thoroughly enjoyed the complimentary breakfast. He got to make his own waffles which he enjoys greatly. I thought the bed was extremely comfortable and had a wonderful sleep. I had stayed at this hotel in 2012 as well and had a good stay at that time too.

Best quality of the place is a very friendly and helpful staff. From arrival to departure, they went out of their way to make my stay pleasant.

Location isn't the best as it is off a toll road, but readily accessible to major streets in Tampa. Complimentary breakfast is okay. Weather was a bit cool that weekend so I didn't get a chance to try the pool.

Will definitely consider for future trips to Tampa.

We are consistenly pleased with our stays at Hampton Inns across the country. It is definitely our hotel of choice. Hamptons have a great value for the cost. We would reccommend Hampton Inns for our family and friends.

Great place near airport. Don't hear planes or traffic noises. Pool clean with handicap accessible chair. Breakfast bar well stocked. Nice lobby with energizing colors and inviting seating areas. Will stay here again.
