First time staying at this hotel. I chose this cause the price was great and the reviews were equally as great. Location was very close to Universal. Room was nice. The free breakfast filled us up. I have no complaints about this place. I will stay here every time we come to Orlando.

Having just recently stayed at the Hampton Inn, I would like to just pass a few comments to anyone who may be questioning whether to stay or not to stay there.
The Hotel is excellent, the staff are very welcoming and really make you feel happy to be staying there. We stayed with our two children and parents and wouldn't hesitate about returning.
The complimentary breakfast ticks the right boxes if you dont want a full 'english'!!!!!
The rooms are cleaned every day and you dont dread that journey back to your room.
Every member of staff makes you feel welcomed and offers to help in anyway.
Well done to the management running this hotel.

This is a low price, clean hotel with great facilities considering USD90 a night. There was a small pool (clean) and gym, a free hot breakfast (very good, fresh fruit salad, good coffee, make your own waffles, etc) and free transport to local facilities including Disney World (saving heaps on cabs). Free WiFi was also included. Rooms were older style but clean with all the facilities you need. Our towels were crafted into rose designs each day, a nice touch. The staff are super friendly and couldn't do enough for us. The only downside at the price level is that you occasionally get college students staying and 'partying' which guests downstairs and away from us (fortunately) were disturbed by. Around the corner there is a Walgreens, Burget King, McDonalds, Hooters, various convenience shops/liqour shops as well as a great locals bar and puzza place. The stand out was an authentic mexican restaurant a 3 minute walk away serving excellent mexican and great prices. If you are looking for a reasonably priced hotel with good facilities and great staff, close to Universal, don't look past this place...

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the furtherest end of the corridor, also check if younger people are staying and a...

I would like to provide you with a balanced view of this hotel.

Parking was plentiful and was never an issue, but we were there off peak.
Check-in was very quick, the staff were very friendly and efficient.

The breakfast was great, as you can expect from a Hampton. The lady that looks after everyone (she is Czech) does a wonderful job and is very friendly.

The coffee was alway available and fresh, and there were fresh cookies available each evening. We went down to the foyer each evening for a coffee & cookie and used the more-stable internet access. There was a nice big clear TV there as well that the boys watched while we chilled out in the nice open comfortable foyer area.

The room was average and requires updating urgently. We were in Suite 516 (top floor) so maybe others had been renovated.

As nearby rooms were smoking rooms we could often smell the smoke, but it wasn't all that bad. I did ask the Manager about this and was informed that several rooms down from us were smoking rooms. We were offered another room without hesitation.

Internet access definitely was not high speed anywhere in the hotel. It didn't work at all in our suite, but it worked (low signal strength) when we went near the lift foyer. I did raise this with the Manager as well and was informed that Apple products (iPad, iTouch, etc) often have issues connecting to their network and holding on to signals. This turned out to be tru, I purchased a laptop at Wal-Mart and the laptop had no problems connecting, but it was still slow.

This hotel is in a 'family' location but does not have a laundry, which we found to be inconvenient. We should have checked prior to booking thus this is our problem, however we wanted to mention this in case other families are expecting a laundry, Reception provided us with directions to a nearby laundromat, but you need to drive to it (approx 5 min drive).

The beds were average, comfortable enough though. I would have expected a sheet change during our 1 week stay, but we had the same bedclothes for the entire week. The towels and face washers were replaced daily and were nice and clean. Although the bathroom and room were old-fashioned and out of date they were still clean.

My boys (11, 11 & 12) used the pool area and found it to be quite nice. There were plenty of clean dry pool towels available as well.

Nearby (very close) was Taco Bell, IHOP and KFC, and a short walk away was a shopping centre with Starbucks, Dollar Store, etc. I say the location is good for late meals, and very good for access to Universal. There is a free shuttle to/from Universal as well.

Would we return to this Hampton? Probably not. It really wasn't to our liking, but the staff were fantastic.

Suggestion to the Hotel: Commence an update to the hotel ASAP to bring it more into line with competitors in the area. You are in a great location, take advantage of this and fix the hotel up. You have a great team there.

Room Tip: Choose a lower floor near the elevators for better internet access. If possible, take your own pillo...
