Room comfortable, bathroom clean. Staff courteous and helpful. A bit pricey relative to other Hampton Inns but then it is downtown and close to FSU. The rate of $14/night for valet parking is excessive, should be no more than $10. The overall experience was a good one.

Have stayed here several times. People are always helpful. rooms are updated and clean, breakfast is pretty good for being included. The best aspect is the great location, by restaurants, bars etc. No issues, would strongly recommend if like a more central location.

As a compliment to the Hampton organization, I will no longer bring my own pillow. The ones provided by Hampton were perfect. The reason I tend to bring my own pillow is that "most" hotels have terrible pillows. Hampton accommodations were so comfortable it was like sleeping at home.

The staff is a real nightmare, they have absolutely no customer service skills they really need to be trained in customer service. They ended up trying some sort of lock out on me a Hilton Honors member with over 100,000 points and a clear record of constant and continued stays with their hotels. Then even after the issue was supposedly... More

Although the hotel seemed relatively busy, we were not bothered by sound anywhere in the hotel. The staff was friendly, from front desk to housekeeping, and the breakfast was even more plentiful than I've seen in other locations. The only minor thing about the room was you could tell there had been a leak on the 6th floor at some... More

I come to Gainesville both for work and study, and this is by far the best hotel in the area. It is also within walking distance to most restaurants downtown Gainesville. I have stayed in this location about 7-8 times and will keep returning. I usually arrive late afternoon and the staff is always friendly and very helpful. The valet... More

The Hampton Gainesville Downtown was very nice during the Christmas Holiday. Staff members were exceptional, especially since they worked the Holiday. We enjoyed the location because of the Downtown restaurants and bars which were festive.

I always check TripAdvisor before booking an unfamiliar hotel. This one was rated #1 in Gainesville. If this is true, Gainesville may want to take a long hard look at how badly they want anyone to come visit. My husband and I are on vacation, so we were looking forward to relaxing after a long drive. We pull up in... More

Hampton does a good job with its brand, nice comfy room. This one is downtown Gainsville, very pleasant, nice staff in the middle of the night. This is the only part of trip advisor I don't like. Min of 200 characters
