Located less than 30 minutes from Sarasota, this Hampton Inn is situated on the banks of Manatee River and the Gulf of Mexico beaches are less than 12 miles away. Shopping outlets, restaurants and museums like the Florida Railroad Museum are all near this chain hotel as well. The large outdoor swimming pool is ideal for playing and relaxing and is surrounded by lounge chairs and tables with umbrellas. The fitness center is a good place to keep up with workouts too. The 115 spacious guestrooms feature a mini-fridge, microwave, flat screen television and free Wi-Fi to stay connected. The guestrooms feature one king or two double beds and some of the guestrooms also feature a sleeper sofa. A complimentary hot buffet breakfast is available to kick start each day and if your family is in a hurry grab an “On the Run” breakfast bag instead. The breakfast bags are available Monday through Friday.

Hampton Inn in Ellenton did not disappoint. Hotel staff wa as friendly, rooms were clean and breakfast was good. Only concerned was hotel was full and parking was tough but a hotel employee gave up her parking spot for us Saturday evening!

Very clean. Staff is amazing. So kind and accommodating to families with younger kids. Great breakfast. Despite lots of sports teams there during our stay, very quiet at night and orderly and efficient breakfast service. Will definitely stay again.
