“Hampton Inn Tampa / Ybor City/Downtown”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

We spent the night here for our 4th wedding anniversary so we could crawl around Ybor nightlife without worrying about driving home. The room was clean and nice and the pool was rather large with plenty of room to do some laps. There is also a computer area where you can use their PCs to go online. All in all it was a nice stay, however, they knew it was our anniversary and there was supposed to be an anniversary basket but there was not. When we called downstairs they said sorry we'll get something up for you and nothing ever came. Anyway we had a great time without having to worry about the late night drive home of about 12 miles.

They have an excellent staff. my experience has always been very pleasant. Lots of nice Restaurants within walking distance and the Trolly is a block away for transportation to other restaurants and the water front. The trolly ride is an experience in itself.

This property should be a model for the Hampton brand. Great service, clean rooms, rooms as advertised, good breakfast, free cookies at night, and free shuttle to the cruise port. We stayed prior to a cruise, and will stay again next cruise. The staff are very friendly, they actually had warm cookies at night, and best of all it's only a half mile or so from the port. At night we found several restaurants just down the street, and had an enjoyable walk. The property itself was very clean and up kept. This is an example of a well run hotel. Shuttle service was free and fast. I would suggest this property anytime you are in Tampa.

Booked this hotel for one night pre cruise leaving the port of Tampa. The location is great and they have a free shuttle to the port in the morning, you just have to sign up for a departure time at the front desk. Its also located near some good restaurants that the shuttle will take you to ( within 3 miles) for free . Pool and room was clean. Staff was friendly and informative. only downside is that our party that was traveling together asked for rooms close by when we booked but that was honored. Breakfast in the morning was also good and the food area was clean.

My experience here was 100% positive. Clean and comfy bedding and pillows and friendly, accomdating staff. Shuttle service was so helpful. The hotel is right in the center of Ybor City with many cool restaurants, shops and nightlife. The hotel security is appreciated, especially for a single, female traveler.

I thought the location was awesome, right on the 7th Ave, the main drag of Ybor City. The hotel itself is decent, nothing special or exciting, especially if you take the location out of the equation. I felt the room felt and looked generally clean, but there were some greasy marks on the headboards, some creepy stains on the carpet near the beds, and some big black scuffs on the walls. The room was pretty quiet, except for the occasional train and trolley outside. The staff were all great and took strides to ensure our happiness. The pool is decent, but on an overcast day, was really cold, even when the high had been over 80 that day. The pool is situated between two tall buildings, so I doubt it has much chance to warm up through out the day. A solar warming system on the roof would help a lot. The beds were comfortable and clean, but the pillows were like marshmallows! They were big and fluffy to start with, but once there was a bit of pressure on them, they collapsed. The towels in the bathroom were falling apart and left little bits of fabric all over you after drying off. They also had a musty smell to them. After the first night, we requested new towels and they were definitely better, but still felt cheap. The shower was kind of sad, with poor water pressure and a nearly non-functioning shower head. While trying to change from a misty shower to a rain-like shower, I inadvertently pulled the whole shower head right off the spigot! Anyways, overall, the hotel was a good experience. I would recommend it to anyone who isn't too picky and plans on spending most of their time out and about. The beds were nice and the staff were great, there were just a few things that need to be fixed up to make this a "Very Good" hotel instead of an "Average" one.

Very clean bed and room. Also convenient location to tampa. Staff was helpful in finding me a chinese restaurant. Breakfast waffles were awesome! Parking garage fills up fast. Get there early or you have to park across the street.
