I've stayed here twice now and it is a great hotel. Not super fancy but the staff if friendly, the rooms are clean and nice, and they have free snacks/drinks in the evening and free breakfast in the morning. You can't go wrong with the location either.

Located in a wonderfully safe downtown area this hotel meets and exceeds all of my expectations. It's close to the University of Florida campus, in the middle of incredible night life and a very comfortable stay. The staff is very attentive and friendly. The facilities are very fresh feeling and relatively new. Finally it is someplace that is really a... More

Selected the hotel for the location to downtown but would return for the service. We specifically recall exceptional service from Rosa, Chris and Sherri going the extra mile. But we have little doubt that high quality service is a priority for this Hampton team. This is a downtown location, so ask questions about parking. There are several, easy-to-use, options available... More

This hotel is very nice. A complete new remodel update from top to bottom. Everything up to and above the new Hampton Inn standards. Yay! Ask for second floor if you want to be on breakfast floor. The only major low point of this property is the area. While the downtown area has nice restaurants and nightlife the place is... More

This hotel is only 10 minutes from campus. There were several restaurants and bars in the area, some of the places offered discounts if you show your room key. Hotel was quiet and very nice breakfast area for a quick snack. Valet parking is $15.

I stayed here one night for business and it was great. Hot (and continental) free breakfast, free Wi-Fi, very clean, modern room/bathroom, and quick check in. Parking overnight is in the garage next door and that's a separate fee (paid about $9 for 1 night). I would be cautious if arriving very late at night, but there is security around... More

Can't really get a better spot to stay for downtown. Clean, friendly, etc. No guest laundry which is incredibly annoying for long stays if you prefer to do your own laundry. Not sure they set aside rooms for Diamond.

We were very impressed with the staff and hotel, having never stayed at this location before I did not know what to expect. All the staff were extremely helpful and accommodating. The location was perfect for us, within walking distance of downtown and UF.

This is my go to hotel in Gainesville. It's close to the university while still being in a fun downtown area. The rooms are clean and nicely equipped. This time I stayed on the second floor, which was convenient for the breakfast room on same floor. They hotel now offers valet parking for less that the overnight garage rates.
