You would be about 4 miles from the nearest beach on sort of a convoluted route to get there - hotel going east to US 1, north on US 1 to SE 17th St , east on 17th St and across the bridge at the Port and then a curve north along Seabreeze Blvd. to get to our southernmost beach area- but the most popular beach area near BeachPlace would be an additional mile or so north of that- so 4-5 miles- if you need to take a taxi , it would be at least $10-12 taxi fare in each direction. No beach with walking distance at all. and there's really not much going on in the Hampton Inn area except other chain hotels that primarily "warehouse" cruisers the night before. Your Hampton is one of the nicer motels there from a cleanliness standpoint , but very few dining or shopping choices nearby it . Unless you taxi somewhere I think you'll be pretty bored.. All the "free shuttle" hotels are pretty much in that same situation.
