The cleanliness and consistency of Hampton Inn is often what drives return visits. Count on modern rooms and free breakfast. This location is 1 mile from the beach. Rooms with two beds or spacious suites with whirlpools and sofa beds are great options for families. All rooms come with a flat-screen HDTV, a mini-fridge and microwave. Take a trolley to the sugary sand beaches with beautiful, blue-green water.
Captain Andrew’s Marina, for fishing and diving charters, and St. Andrew’s Recreation Area, for hiking, fishing and snorkeling, are close by. The hotel features an outdoor pool and hot tub, as well as a fitness center. Grocery stores are close by, and Pier Park is a short drive for shopping, dining and entertainment. Kids love WonderWorks, Zoo World and Shipwreck Island Water Park. Nearby Shell Island is a natural reserve where you can swim next to wild dolphins in crystal-clear waters. Call to request cribs or highchairs.

I stayed in a handicapped room on the second floor down the end of the hall. Why these rooms are not on the first floor near the lobby makes no sense to me. It was very difficult for me because I have mobility problems and use a cane. The room was clean and comfortable.
My room was exceptionally clean. It smelled fresh. The A/C filters look like they had been power washed that morning. I was really impressed! The breakfast buffet was definitely a notch above other hotels, too. Lastly, I was very happy with how we could walk to local restaurants.
