Check-in was fast and hassle-free. This was important, as I was not entirely sober, having spent the day with wenches, lords, and other inibreates (is that really a word?) at the Renaissance Festival in Tampa. We asked for (and got) a room away from the elevator, and it was quiet. The bed was comfortable, the pillows were so comfortable we took them apart to find the make and model the next morning. I was especially pleased with the heat/cool controls. Very effecient & quiet. There is the garbage bin noise at 9:00 AM (as mentioned by another reviewer), but we did not experience hallway noise. The "hot" breakfast is pretty standard fare, with bland eggs and tasty sausage. The rest is as usual. The staff was friendly, but not especially accomodating. They seemed to have a job, and do it, but not really liking it. A shame, as that is the difference between 4 & 5 stars.

Room Tip: Get a room as far away from the elevator as you can

It was worth driving a little further north to stay at this Hampton. The property is nice, the hotel is updated and taken care of nicely. The staff was very friendly and efficient. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Super clean rooms. Spacious and comfortable. The included breakfast offers a nice selection as well. The staff were very friendly. A great place to overnight or to spend several days if staying in the Tampa area.

We chose this Hampton because of its location and bases on a prior stay here about 8 years ago. While nothing went terribly wrong, this was not a typical Hampton experience for us.

The hotel was under-staffed and the front desk clerk was clearly stressed - but thankfully not rude. We were upgraded to a suite, so that was an appreciated bonus. However, our request for extra pillows went unfilled.

The room had very worn furniture, including a chair that barely had any cover left. There were a variety of other nuisances - blinds that wouldn't fully close, stiff and loose bathroom fixtures, and un-vacuumed halls. There are renovations underway, so if you stay here request a renovated room.

In the future, we will probably seek other Hampton (or similar chain) options.

For this trip, I was going to be at the hotel for a long duration. The first part of the trip was for business and the second half was personal as we may relocate to Tampa. After a long day of travel, I was very surprised about the evening Manager's Reception. My thought was that there would be snack, finger food items. I was very surprised to find enough food for a meal and wine too. What makes this evening reception extra special is Nikole! She was a very welcome comfort for travelers. She was attentive to everyone. She takes care for you like family. Nikole was also attending the front desk on the weekend evenings. She was still great to the customers, taking care of their needs. Mary, at the front desk, was very accommodating. She was very helpful with all my request. Also, at the weekday breakfast, Pam was very kind and helpful. The breakfast offers something for everyone. If you leave hungry, it is your own fault. The hotel is in a nice, quiet area. The grounds are very nice. My room was also very nice. I asked for a room with a microwave and a refrigerator, which both came in handy for this long trip.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the elevators and vending for best comfort at any hotel.

Had a really bad experience at a small locally owned motel in Sanibel. I was looking for a motel that was mold-free, and I found it here. Everything was clean and fresh smelling. The carpet was clean and I could walk on it with bare feet. The area is quiet and felt safe. Would definitely recommend.

Lots of hotels have an evening reception or hospitality offered, but at the Hampton, Nicole is what really makes theirs special. I was welcomed (and encouraged and invited to attend), she used my name and most nights I was there received better service that I would at a sit-down restaurant when the employees work for tips on your individual bill. With no check at the end of the event she is just motivated by making the guests feel welcome and happy and she does it wonderfully!
