"Convenient to Ybor's Nightlife"
This hotel is located within easy walking distance of all of Ybor City's restaurants and nightlife. The hotel entrance is hard to find. While the address is 7th Avenue, parking is on another street that can be hard to find initially. We actually entered the parking garage and left the car before taking an elevator up to the lobby to check in. Its convenient […] enough once you know where you are going though. They also had no problem with early check ins. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Extremely busy and 'special event' weekend, but staff made up for inconveince I first experience. Registration was having computer issues, so after 3 attempts, I finally got a room that wasn't already occupied. They were sincerely apologetic about the entire situation and inconveince for myself and family....especially since we had to tote our luggage […] back and forth each time. Management immediately 'comped' ALL my charges during my stay. This is not what I expected and truly appreciate and would highly recommend staying here and plan to do so for next 'special event' in the area! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The front desk clerk was extremely friendly and showed real southern hospitality. The room was clean, bed was very comfortable and anything we asked for was done in a very timely manner. I would suggest this hotel to everyone & yes, I would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Home away from home"
The entire hotel staff (front desk, maintenance, driver and housekeeping) was extremely friendly. The continental breakfast was perfect and very satisfying. I would stay at this hotel again if I am in the Ybor City area.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel for couples and families."
We really enjoyed our stay, we will be back. Our room was not ready, so the comped our parking and served us cocktails. Very nice place to stay and service is impeccable.Genuine Expedia guest review
Liked the free breakfast. The room was pretty decent in size. The pillows were not good at all- if you suffer from neck or shoulder problems, you might want to bring your own. Nice that it was a secure hotel because the surrounding area was shady and there were many night-owls creeping about. Easy to get anywhere in Tampa from there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"big mistake to book this hotel"
Well, let me begin by saying that anything complementary or good that I could say about this hotel as a result of our one-night stay is and will be overshadowed by the fact that we ended up staying in a smoking room through no fault of our own. Suffice to say, the hotel was quite difficult to find – with all the road detours and having to navigate at […] night. Upon our arrival, there was no direction to find the entrance to the hotel. Hotels.com mentioned an additional charge for daily parking. What hotels.com did NOT mention was that parking space was very limited and it was “first come, first serve”. Upon entering the hotel, we were quite surprised to find out that the hotel was fully booked and that we were placed in a smoking room. This accommodation was contrary to the fact that we booked a non-smoking room in advance of this stay. Furthermore, I found it appalling that the front desk personnel were not even slightly concerned or sympathetic to the booking mistake. They could’ve attempted to make assurances like, “we will contact you ASAP if a non-smoking room becomes available and we will transfer you immediately”, or something of the like. A simple “sorry” was all we received. In a nutshell, we felt like we were staying inside a dump. The entire room smelled, including the bathroom. In conclusion, this hotel stay was a big mistake. It will certainly be our last booking this hotel and it was certainly not worth the premium price we paid for the stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Terrible Service and Dirty"
We were given the room we booked when we checked in, a King Suite non smoking. Five seconds after entering the room the desk called and told us we had to move because our room wasnt guaranteed. They moved us to a tiny, double bed, smoking room that smelled so bad my nose and eyes burned. My feet stuck to the floor and the AC continuously turned off. […] The only apology from the desk "Let me know if you need some febreeze or something." We had a very important obligation the next morning downtown our we would have been O-U-T. This place is terrible. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel for those that like to go to Ybor."
I really dont care about a hotel being luxurious just as long as it is clean. Thats what this hotel is..."clean." Great location and within walking distance of the bars and restaurants. Their breakfast buffet is good and they have a complimentary trolley that will take you to channelside. The beds are comfortable and each room has a good size refridgerator […] and microwave. Also has great wifi signal for those that travel with their laptop. The security seems good as you have to use your card key to get in through every entry and is required to use the elevator. The only thing thats not convienent is that parking is limited. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I picked this hotel for its location, i enjoy nightlife, and in particular i enjoy being within walking distance to a local epicenter of it. Thus it was a perfect fit in that regard. What i didn't expect was for how clean and comfortable the rooms and hotel would be, or how just simply friendly, welcoming and professional the staff at all levels were. […] If it was within their pervue to help, they would do so without hesitation. My room was large and comfortable, the bed had a dream inducing soporific effect that was wonderful after some late nights. Suggestions for improvement would be to up the quality of the scrambled eggs at breakfast, not that it matters as everything else is fine and tasty, but the eggs seem to be oddly out of place where everything else is quite good. Also increasing the internet bandwidth to the hotel would be nice as it can get painfully slow at peak times. All in i recommend it if you want to be close to the fun in Ybor, and downtown is only a quick trolley ride away Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Tampa before Naples"
In Florida to go to a meeting in Naples and decided to spend an extra day in Tampa before going on to Naples. Very nice area and close to everything.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel but why the parking fees?"
The hotel and customer service was nice but after reviewing my credit card statement I was charged for two days of parking when I only stayed one night. After calling the customer service Rep couldn't explain why but credited my bank card. I was told there were no charges when I checked out. Always obtain a printed receipt even if you reserve through […] hotel.com. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We encountered some problems when we stayed 5 nights. For 2 of the days, we could not get the front desk to answer the phone to set a wake up call. We tried both the wake up button and the "O" button repeatedly. Also, one day the housekeeper did not come by despite the fact we were out of the room by 9am. Otherwise, everything was just fine.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
great experience, well maintained hotel with friendly serviceGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good for family and business?"
staff was helpful in accommodating my room request. Good, hot, Hampton breakfast. Conveniently located in downtown Ybor city. (Prepare to pay extra for parking.) For a great dining experience, go to the Columbia restaurant. Hotel even provided a shuttle there.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nothing fancy, but clean and nice"
This hotel is located right in the heart of Tampa's Ybor City. If you've never been, think New Orleans; that's what it feels like. Lots of old buildings with unique shops. There is a coffee roasting company down the street, and the smell of coffee is delicious. Also plenty of cigar shops along the street, good restaurants ... and if you want a tattoo, […] you'll have plenty of options! The hotel was clean, with very friendly staff. It isn't new, but it's well-kept and decent for the price. Room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast in morning was adequate, with lots of "standard" hotel free-breakfast variety, like waffles, muffins, fruit, yogurt. Good coffee. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Had a nice weekend stay at very convenient location for Ybor and Tampa. First time I ever had a problem with housekeeping/room service in not responding to plumbing scenario.Genuine Expedia guest review
Good breakfast, friendly staff, clean room and comfortable bed. Parking was expensive, and we usually had to park in the lot across the street (at no additional cost), but at least we had a place to park in Ybor and could walk to so many areas.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hampton Inn is one of my favourite hotels"
The stay was short but comfortable. Hampton Inn is a well run hotel chain and they just treat their customers with a lot of consideration. They are definitely one of my first choices when looking for a good value for your money.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Service was great and the location even better. The complimentary breakfast was tasty.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This was our second stay at the Hampton Ybor and for good reason: Excellent service, clean rooms and a perfect location. Located on historic 7th Avenue in Ybor, the hotel is a perfect base to explore Ybor City and Tampa. The hotel's staff is super friendly and always willing to go out of their way to help a guest. On this recent trip the parking garage […] was seemingly full, yet the staff walked through the facility to find/create a parking space for us. Honestly can't say enough positive things. Will definitely stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very welcoming hotel"
The hotel was perfect, great location and a staff that couldn't do enough.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good Hotel, Bad Location"
Just like my title states, Average Hotel but bad location. Upon arrival the front desk tell you not to go left because its the "Dark Side" it's never a good sign. We had a guy try and start a fight with my son as we tried entering the elevators. I did not feel safe in this hotel due to its poor location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Only negative would be not seeing the info about 8.00 daily parking charge.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not A Great Experience"
The room was not very clean, there was rust on the bathroom door, the carpet was old and ripped, and the noise was horrible. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good location for people coming to Ybor nightclubs"
We did not like the parking situation. It was extremely tight and there were clearly not enough spaces for the number of rooms in the hotel. Def not worth the $8.00 per night parking fee. Hotel is right on the busy 7th avenue portion of Ybor city. Walking distance to a lot of nightlife. Hotel has added security measures to ensure guest safety.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Internet, TV poof at best and COLD"
It took two calls and some work on my own to get the Internet Wifi working. Second call told me to use the ATTWifi tower instead of the HHOTEL (BROKEN) tower that the instructions from the front desk had told me to use. For the TV it always came on pointing at the Hotels ADD channel at almost FULL Volume and it normally took three or four tries before […] it would stay on long enough to change the channel and lower the volume. As for the beds if you like HARD beds this is your place. AND worst of all the the highest the AC could be set was 75 (I'm 60 and from florida anything much below 80 is COLD) and that ment it didn't auto-cutoff until below 70 so to control the temputer you hand to turn it off and on be the manual switch.

It would have been more helpful to know about the transportation from the hotel to convention center earlier. I found it to be ok but would have preferred the shuttle to have left a little earlier since I had 8am scheduled Sessions. I worked around that issue.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very good experience. We like to stay in Ybor City when we visit Tampa as we can walk from our hotel to many bars and restaurants. The hotel staff were very pleasant and helpful and the room was very comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not For Families"
Not the best location for a family to stay. There is a train station right next door and the train sounds the horn in the middle of the night. The hotel charges you for parking. Also, parking is scarce so you might have to park in a lot across the street which could be dangerous.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Walking distance to anything in Ybor"
The hotel is lovely and clean. The staff is friendly and even went above and beyond to get us a wine opener. The only opportunity for the hotel would be to have more towels already in the room. We booked a room for 4 adults and there were not enough bath towels. The staff did bring extras to our room, but I would think they should already be there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Everything was nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My friend and I stayed here for one night. We were going to see a show at the amphitheater event facility. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the amenities were fantastic. Definitely will be booking here again for the next event!Genuine Expedia guest review
Stayed there with the family the night before going on a cruise. Ended up leaving my vehicle there because parking was cheaper and they offered free shuttle to and from cruise ship. No problem getting ride to ship.But when we docked I called to get shuttle. 20 minutes later I called back 20 minutes later I called a cab. They were good enough to reimburse […] me at the hotel but I lost an hour on my drive back home. Saw nicer places around cruise terminal. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"$8 per car when street parking is free"
Eh, it was okay. Wish I chose somewhere else though.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Place at an affordable price in YBOR"
It was A short but pleasant stay. The rooms are super clean and well appointed with a microwave and a fridge. the property offers secure parking for a small additional fee. The location is awesome if you want to be close to YBOR.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Stayed here due to its close proximity to both the amphitheater and Ybor City. Room was very clean, had a roll away bed brought up within minutes of requesting as were more towels. Staff very courteous and helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was clean, the staff friendly, and the free breakfast good. The hotel shuttle takes you anywhere you want to go, even to a restaurant. When you are finished, the shuttle will take you back to the hotel. There is a charge for parking. Remember to pull into the parking garage to reach the check-in entrance. The other entrance where the shuttle […] is parked is on the main street and you cannot safely stop your can and unload. The surrounding area is pretty seedy and you might not want you children to see the lastest in S&M gear displayed in one of the shops. Access to the convention center and downtown Tampa was great.

"Really Nice Stay"
I stayed at the Hampton Inn July 24-26 for the Bar Exam. The staff was very nice and accommodating. The shuttle took all the Bar candidates to and from the Tampa Convention. The room was comfy and clean. The area was quaint and interesting. I was satisfied.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Execellent service,Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Summer get away"
Hotel staff was GREAT, very impressed, very friendly and helpful. My husband and I were traveling with 3 kids and the roll away was there within minutes of us getting in the room. The rooms were clean and comfortable a little tight with all of us but it beats having to get a 2nd room. Overall I would recommend this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Extremely friendly, helpful staff who gave great suggestions re dinner options. I was also allowed to stay an hour past checkout time which was a fabulous treat. The room was clean and well air-conditioned which was great and the surrounding area was historically very interesting. I was very satisfied with my stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place to relax"
All the staff was very pleasent. The rooms were comfortable. The area is being revitilized and we loved it. We have already been talking about going back.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Quick trip for a wedding."
The hotel itself was as advertised. It was clean and a good value. The surrounding area is being made over and for now is not very attractive. There is great potential however the hotel is ahead of the area renovationsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Very nice for family stay however if you have young children (5 to 14) you might not want to stay here. Large alternative life style that is very open!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I was satisfied with my one night stay, but the parking situation wasn't explained to me when I checked in. I wake up the next morning to a bill for parking that has already been ran through my Visa for $8 and some change without my authorization. That made me feel like I was taken advantage of.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Good price, a block or three from most of the good places in Ybar City, the block the hotel is on is a bit sketchy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I really enjoyed the morning breakfast. The taste and quality of the food was excellent. I need to travel to FL again, and I am staying at a Hampton Inn.Genuine Expedia guest review
Comfortable and convenient to Ybor and the ForumGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location and value"
Only comment is they need to improve the parking situation and clarify costs for parking up front.Genuine Expedia guest review
