“Great for pre-cruise stay”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

Stayed one night before a cruise. I'm a long time Hilton Honors member but instead of using points for this pleasure trip I chose to pay using their very, very, reasonable advance internet rate. Free shuttle from airport. Very friendly staff. Received a complimentary bottle of water & cookies at check-in. Room was clean, quiet, and everything worked. Bed was comfortable. Convenient to just walk over to Bahama Breezes for dinner. Breakfast buffet was better than average Hampton. This place will be at the top of my list on next trip here.

If you are looking for a place to stay before/after your cruise from Tampa don't look anymore. This is it! Close to the airport and close to the cruise terminal with friendly and FREE shuttle. On top of that free breakfast. But what really makes this place special are the people working here. The reception staff were so friendly and helpfull. They took 7 pieces of our luggage (it was five of us) and stored it before and after the cruise in their tiny back room where they have printers, faxes and other office equipment. We basically filled up the area used by them to work. When we were waiting for our shuttle we were offered excellent cookies. All of these with big smiles and huge hospitality. Shariffa, a friendly soul behind the counter is an angel.

Great loaction, great staff and great ambience. I hate to share hidden gems but this hotel deserves it for business and pleasure-great spot if you want to hit Tampa and St. Pete. Front desk staff and housekeeping are very accomodating and pleasurable.

Just recently got delayed on our cruise due to fog and missed flight home. Had to scramble to find a hotel quickly. The Hampton Inn provided a shuttle from the port. The hotel was very clean, staff very helpful. We ate at a nearby restaurant that was very good, the Bahama Breezes. We were able to print out our boarding passes for next days flight and check our email all complimentary, and to top it off, breakfast and airport shuttle was complimentary!!!! Even at 5 a.m.!!! My flight was at 6:11am. and they made sure I got to the airport on time..

Check in was nice, arrived a little early and as a Honors member they had a room for me. Front desk delightful and welcomed us to the hotel. Shower before dinner couldn't get hot water and pressure that trickled from the faucet. Went to the front desk they sent maintainence up to check it out. After going down to the boiler and back to the room he confirmed there was a problem. They use a screw type and lever faucet that must have been defective and prevented good water flow and hot water.

Reminded them of the same problem the next morning at check out so the next guest doesn't have the same problem.

Overall a nice clean hotel, quiet and easy on and off the major highway. Unfortunately after a few hours driving and several hours Christmas shopping a refreshing hot shower would have been nice prior to dressing for dinner. And no, I didn't push for "Satisfaction Guaranteed," nor did they offer. If you go, check the shower before you unpack and settle in to your room.

My wife and I had to travel to Tampa suddenly for personal business. We had to be there in two days. We were lucky to find this hotel had one room available that would meet our needs. Most other hotels were already booked solid by the time we started looking for a place to stay that was close to the airport. After staying at this hotel for three nights, we wonder why it had any rooms available at all. This hotel is very clean, Has very comfortable beds wqith duvets and double sheets, has excellent housekeeping service, a terrific FULL breakfast, kind and caring hotel staff, two outstanding locations to grab lunch or dinner that are within walking distance of the hotel. This Hampton Inn is just a couple of minutes to the airport and the rental car agencies that are located within the airport itself. From the time we left the hotel to the time we were physically checking at the American airlins ticket machines, it was exactly 12 minutes! We highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Tampa and surrounding cities who want to be close to the airport. By the way, there is NO noise from planes flying over the hotel. The Hampton Inn folks found the perfect location for this hotel!

Room Tip: Always pick any floor above the first floor to eliminate the guest noise factor.
