Originally booked at another hotel because there were no vacancies at this Hampton. The other hotel was horrible so I took a chance and used my Hilton app to confirm that a room was available for the 2nd night of my stay --jumped for joy! Hampton Inn's are always my preference and this one did not disappoint. Clean hotel, friendly... More

I created a Tripadvisor account just to write this review. I've been complaining about the Wifi and I wanted to put a number to it so I just tested it. I didn't even get to 1Mbps on the faster network (attwifi)! http://www.speedtest.net/my-result/4616721324. (Could not test the slower one, hhonors, because speedtest.net won't even load on it). I gave the front... More

This hotel has been our go-to place ever since our daughter went to visit UF in 2013. It has never let us down. The staff is amazing, always helpful and friendly. It is ideally located close to restaurants and entertainment.

the Hampon Inn downtown is in a great location, Park your car or valet, check in, refresh and walk out side door to a choice of great places to eat within a 2 block area. Creole, American, Bar-b-que, sushi, desserts all within walking distance. Rooms are comfortable, and breakfast is free. Front desk staff is friendly,

While this may seem further away from UF campus, it is a great location away from the congestion of Archer Road. Easy to make way back to campus and plenty of dining options. The rooms are spacious (I stayed in one of the suites) with a lot of kitchen amenities (refrigerator, microwave) The only constructive criticism is that the dressing... More

Stayed just one night in this hotel when moving my son to UF. The staff was pleasant and helpful. The location is good - downtown, but not far at all from UF campus. Our room was on the 4th floor and was quiet. It was very clean with a comfortable bed. The amenities seemed good, but we did not have... More

not only is the hotel very nice and well situated for the business traveler, the staff is also very accommodating as evidenced when my luggage arrived damaged and they provided me tools to install the replacement handle that was shipped to me during the hotel stay --- and it didn't hurt that there were happy hour snacks and drinks available...

Considering the area I guess it's pretty good. Not a lot good or bad to say really. Clean enough, fairly well maintained for its age. Staff is nice and there is coffee in the lobby in the evenings also

This hotel is in the heart of downtown, so downtown restaurants and stores are all within walking distance. Very convenient. Also, the staff are all very nice and hospitable. I would definitely return if I am spending a night in Gainesville.

A colleague and I stayed at this hotel for a business trip. In short, this hotel had great staff, nice facilities, and a convenient location to downtown restaurants, Starbucks, parking, the University, etc. We would stay here again.
