“Great experience!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

Our only complaint with the hotel is that it is not conveniently located to dining & shopping. The horrendous Tampa traffic makes this a problem.

However, everything else was great. The staff was completely accommodating, the room was comfortable, and the complimentary breakfast was very good. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this location.

This hotel work out wonderfully before our cruise out of Tampa. Free shuttle from the airport, free wifi, continental breakfast and friendly staff. The hotel was a great value and we were really happy with our stay here.

Good walks near the bay. Close to the airport, but not so close that you hear the airplanes taking off and landing. Easy access to the highway system. Short bridge ride to St. Petersburg. Has a number of good eateries near by. Very competitive prices. Positive and forward leaning staff. Room are Ok though they could use some TLC. That being said I would stay there again, if back in the area.

The hotel was conveniently located to Tampa Airport; the check-in staff and other employees were very gracious and helpful. The young woman at the desk was extremely helpful to me with the wireless set-up and even went beyond what would be required of her in her position.

The condition of the hotel in general was pretty shabby--dirty carpets, showers that didn't work or had parts missing, amenities minimal. I didn't get the sense that the hotel had updated its facilities in some time; however, my room was quiet and serviceable, minus the comments above. The best aspect of my stay there was the helpfulness of the staff--they were marvelous.

Room Tip: Ask to see the room before you check in.

asked for king non smoking with refrigerator , got twin beds no refrigerator for same cost(with reservation)
hot water in shower was non existent
wall paper was hanging off of walls
carpet was either in the middle of being replaced, or was torn and disrepaired.
no good help from the desk personell about the mistake (on their part, I showed them the reservation confirmations)
go to a cheap motel in a seedy part of time....you will pay a lot less, but they obviously might try harder.

I can only assume the good reviews were from a different time period as this place is falling apart in January 2013.

Room Tip: don't trust their reservations desk. manager won't help you until the next day.

I am very sorry for the your disappointing experience you had. Since the hotel was purchased in June, and new management is in place, I can assure you that your next experience will be completely different should you decide to stay with us again. We will be starting on our renovation soon, and we are excited about all the improvements we will be making.

The staff was friendly and the hotel is conveniently located for quick access to Tampa airport. There were plenty of nearby opportunities for recreation and entertainment. Clearwater just 15 minutes west. Parking tight for larger vehicles.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights and found this to be an agreeable place to stay. As with all Hampton Inns, the quality was good, the room was clean, the complimentary breakfast was satisfying, and this location was great. It is close to the airport without feeling like an airport hotel, and there are decent restaurant choices in the area, as well as by a short drive to Clearwater or Tampa proper. As indicated by others, shower water pressure could be better, but otherwise, it was a very pleasant stay.
