Great location to all restaurants, stores and the interstate and yet quiet. Great size rooms to move around in with out stubbing your toes and very comfortable. The staff was very helpful and with smiles on their faces. Breakfast was very accommodating and good.

Stayed at this hotel for a month and loved it. It is extremely clean and well maintained. Our room had a full desk area and a kitchen with microwave. The breakfast selection is plentiful and includes a selection of hot entrees (they change each day) as well as cereals, bagels and other pastries etc. In the afternoon they have complimentary cookies and throughout the day coffee is available. There are guest laundry facilities and a small shop where you can buy snacks. Did not use the pool but... Read more

Oh, my goodness, the crew does so many things right that it's easy to lose track of the merits. I shall endeavor to itemize: 1) Consistent with my previous visit about 6 months before this stay, I first was impressed by the décor. The architect clearly set a goal of going toe-to-toe with rival hotels beyond the Hampton brand and succeeded. 2) One of my regular gripes with Hampton properties is that general manager skimps on staff at the front desk. All too often, I have arrived at a peak hour... Read more

This is the nicest Hampton Inn I've ever stayed at. The staff was extremely friendly and the accommodations were excellent. The breakfast was typical of this class of hotel but overall I would highly recommend this place. It's in the corner of a large retail area with plenty of shopping and eating place and is 20-30 minutes to the top Florida beaches along the Gulf coast

This hotel is located in the middle of all sorts of shopping and great restaurants. A few miles north, there is an outlet mall, too. When returning after working all day, I was greeted at the door to freshly popped popcorn, soda, and freshly baked cookies. The rooms are of the standard Hampton Inn quality and cleanlines.

Staff and an inviting lobby make a home away from home atmosphere a plus at this inn. It was a bit of a challenge for my GPS to work the way through the shopping center to get to the facility but worth the winding way back.

This hotel is in an excellent location for food, shopping, etc. Nothing extraordinary about the level of service. However, I can't say that I lacked anything. Rooms were pretty clean (my only gripe is that the room had been previously smoked in). I never made it to the pool, my roommate DID enjoy time at the gym. Breakfast was adequate.

I frequently stay at Hampton Inns because they are clean and they serve a very good breakfast. This stay was not up to par for the chain.
