I stayed here during the week leading up to Gasparilla festival and they evidently priced it accordingly. The breakfast room is cramped and thrifty, fitness center on the second floor is barren and turning left off Horace onto Falkenburg in the mornings can be hazardous. Although the breakfast features typical Hampton Inn amenities which are adequate there wasn't much space available in the dining area to find seating or standing room at the high table without bumping into fellow guests. The fitness center has a treadmill, a recumbent bike and an elliptical in front of a tv which is loud because the floor has no carpeting and the accoustics of the room are poor; no free weights or other options there. The reception was friendly but they wouldn't hold luggage during a Saturday night while away because they stated the hotel was unsecured which led me to wonder about the general security. Generally the place needs an interior facelift, especially considering the price paid for the room. I didn't feel there was good value here.
