“stay and sail”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2014

The hotel was a great place to spend the night prior to going on a cruise. Parking was in an enclosed garage and had no problems at all. Shuttle to Port of Tampa was efficient and speedy. Breakfast was a nice bonus and overall I would return there for the same deal. Hotel was undergoing renovations at the time. Didn't do much but sleep and leave the car there but the rate was a decent deal as well.

Great little Hampton Inn in a location convenient for access to downtown for business and Ybor City for an excellent selection of restaurants. The staff is outstanding! I've stayed here several times and every staff person is consistently friendly and helpful. I'm impressed!

The breakfasts are good. The parking area is small, but convenient. The security measures are sufficient enough to make me feel comfortable when traveling alone.

This is my hotel-of-choice in Tampa.

We could not be more pleased with our stay. It is located on the main strip in Ybor where all the action is at night--pubs, restaurants, discos, etc. We loved that there was hot daily breakfast as well as a swimming pool. What made our stay even more pleasant was the incredibly concerning and amicable front desk staff, namely the various black women who were/are simply the best.

We were in town for a small surgical procedure at Tampa General Hospital and selected this hotel at the doctor's recommendation. We were there for three nights, combining a little pleasure with our primary purpose. The facilities are top notch and the room was very comfortable. Breakfast was exactly as expected, very good. The shuttle driver was most accommodating. The streetcar stop was right across the street. The decor reflects the Ybor neighborhood history. It was very easy to get around the city from here. All in all, we had a most comfortable stay and will definitely stay here again.

I spend one night with my family of 3 before leaving the next day on a cruise. The hotel is in great location and easy to get to the port. The hotel provides a free shuttle for drop off and return. Coming back from your cruise make sure you go to the parking area for buses/vans (pick-up is across the street from the cruise terminal near the garage). I had a longer wait than normal because I was not in the right area. The hotel is less than 10 minutes from the port. You can even leave you car parked at the hotel for an extra fee. Look for the special on the hotel website.
The room was clean, the breakfast the next morning was the normal Hampton Inn breakfast, but a lot people if you wait to eat right before they close. Check in and out was easy.
If you have time and want to experience Ybor.. You are right at the gate to the “city”… the streets are full of fun and some great sights. Not recommend you take small kids to some party hubs.

Room Tip: Coming back from your cruise make sure you go to the parking area for buses/vans (pick-up is across...

I am a real person and not some computer generated prompt writing some flowery review or fabrication. In all seriousness, this hotel reinvigorated my faith in the ability of hotels to put out a quality product altogether. Everyone was helpful, the staff was on point, and the convenience of the hotel cannot be beaten. I would highly recommend this hotel to a person traveling to Tampa. It is close to the restaurants and shops in Ybor and only a few minutes away from downtown.

My husband and I stayed here the night before our cruise because of their "park & cruise" and we had a wonderful time and will be doing this again every time we cruise out of Tampa OR are looking to stay in Ybor. The hotel was clean the staff was wonderful and my husband who is picky beyond belief when it comes to bacon and usually won't eat it since it is NEVER crispy enough to his liking went back for more...I think he would come back for just the bacon. We had a wonderful stay and we want to say thank you!
