Hotel staff and valet personnel were courteous, and very helpful. I cannot say enough about the valet, as we had some strategic issues and they worked with us during the 4 weeks that we were there. The hotel staff accommodated me regarding the type of room I needed, going above and beyond - we went to 4 different rooms before... More

This is our 3rd year staying at the Hampton Inn Downtown for a Florida Football game and as always excellent service. This hotel is located within walking distance to a bunch of bars and restaurants, which is nice when coming from New York. In addition, the free shuttle to the stadium is a wonderful service that makes going to games... More

Aside from the excellent staff, cleanliness, and good accommodations - this is the only hotel in Gainesville with a reasonable number of food and drink options around it. You don't have to hole up in your room and pass the time, a lot of short walking options for all manner of things. The weekend rates are steep during football season... More

We needed to stay in downtown Gainesville for an art show and chose the Hampton Inn for it's convenience. It was an excellent choice, not just for location, but also for the quality of the service we received and the room.

Lovely spot on Main Street. Very clean and comfortable rooms. Hotel staff friendly and courteous. Parking is a little awkward especially for handicap due to having to walk to the parking gararge. I would definitely stay here again with my family.

Thanks so much for taking the time to complete the guest survey and post a Trip Advisor review. I see you stayed with us during our Downtown Festival and Art Show. This is the only event where the city closes off all downtown streets and we don't have our usual valet parking available. If you need any kind of help... More

Like many others, we were in town visiting my son at UF. This hotel has to be the best option if you want to be right in the middle of downtown. It is clean and the staff is very friendly. Upon arrival, after a long drive, we were greeted by "Happy Hour". That was a nice surprise. I believe it's... More

We were passing through Gainesville and were so charmed by it's downtown that we decided to stay the night. The Hampton Inn Downtown appeared to be the only hotel that was truly "downtown" and that is why we chose it, but were pleased upon checking in. Very clean with polite and helpful staff. Comfy mattress and better than average breakfast.... More

As we arrived early we were allowed to get right into our room & took a nap which was so needed. 2nd floor has continuous coffee at the breakfast station. This hotel is walking distance to everything great in Gainesville.
