Great location, you can walk to all the spots in downtown. The hotel is centrally located. The staff was very friendly and the rooms were spacious and clean. They put out cookies everyday and that was a nice touch. The breakfast had many items to offer. I would stay here again and recommend it as well.

The staff is outstanding at this property. The location, downtown Gainesville, is perfect, as there are numerous restaurants and bars within easy walking distance. Property has a nice work-out room, including free weights. Pool is small, but pleasant and sunny in the morning. Hotel is in very good shape. Most outstanding feature though is the staff. I'm continually impressed by... More

Toilet doesn't work 3 of 4 days/ nights and no one can call a plumber? Tell me again about the 100% guarantee... To be handed a plunger and asked if you'd like to keep it doesn't give you a warm feeling...not offered another room? Comped one night is not 100% guarantee.

Stayed for business in August of 2014. All staff were friendly, courteous and professional. Room was clean, bathroom was clean. Nice bed. The valet parkers/drivers were also courteous and friendly; quickly retrieving my car each time. A "Manager's Reception" type event each night from 5 to 7 PM with snacks and free beer & wine was nice. The restaurant right... More

I cannot recall ever staying at a Hampton Inn, but chose this hotel because of the proximity to my friends house. I loved the stay. The room was spacious, very clean and extremely comfortable. The staff were very friendly and inviting. The downtown location is a huge plus, because after we spent our time with friends we finished the evening... More

This Hampton hotel offers all the great stuff I've come to expect from Hampton and is in a great location also. Walk-able to a nice variety of shops, restaurants and more. The breakfast room is really nice and the food was fine.

I chose this hotel as it is in the Hilton family as a function of rewards, and that it is directly across the street from the civil courthouse. Free breakfast that is better than most hamptons, very helpful staff.

To experience the essence and culture of the city this location is perfect. Shopping, restaurants, nightlife, plays are within walking distance. It's appropriate for any age with great amenities like the workout room, business center and salt water pool. I always feel safe with a security guard on duty. Great staff and well run facility.

We travel extensively and rarely have stayed at a Hampton so were not sure what to expect. This property was a pleasant surprise; clean, spacious, quiet and well situated right in the heart of town and opposite a good restaurant - Harry's (with a very attractive waiter - Joshua, who really looked after us!:) It was a great change to...

Spent a night at the beginning of a road trip with my daughter. The theme for the stay started at the front desk when the receptionist who checked us in was either management or fresh of the training scheme. He managed to compare seeming sincere, friendly, welcoming and efficient in one effortless piece of work. The room was unremarkable but... More
