If you need to be in Gainesville for a few days, this is the best place to be, because of its convenience to the downtown area with many good restaurants, a microbrewery, and a theater within a few short blocks. The only problem is parking, or having to pay a high fee to park in the garage. But it is... More

I can not say enough great things about this hotel! The staff was pleasant (Rosa at the front desk is a doll), the room was immaculate, the bed comfortable, the complimentary breakfast was delicious, the valet attendants were friendly, accommodating and helpful, and I came and went about 30 times in 2 days. The lobby was inviting and friendly and... More

Oh my GOODNESS! Talk about friendly and accomodating staff! The room was spotless, the staff was ever so friendly and helpful. Valet parking attendants were spot on and quick to get our car no matter how many times in a day we came and went. I was honestly blown away by the exceptional quality of this hotel. At breakfast I... More

We stayed in this hotel in March, 2014. We were pleasantly surprised. The hotel was very clean, friendly and in a great area. I loved the happy hour, breakfast and breakfast on the run if you don't have time for a full meal. Very accommodating.

2nd time staying here. Felt more like a boutique hotel, rather than a "normal" Hampton Inn. All aspects of the service were great and the condition of the property was predictably clean. Complimentary breakfast was great. Insider tip: There should be free parking nearby (I arrived Sat and departed Sun) if you don't mind walking a block or two, although... More

This is a nice little gem in the heart of Gainesville. It is nice to be in the middle of good restaurants and entertainment. There was a bike event happening when we went and the hotel was very busy but it was very quiet in the room. We enjoyed everything from check in to check out! Very polite staff, very... More

I recently stayed in Gainesville for business - the company made the reservations (the main reason for why I was staying in the Hampton Inn). That being said, Hampton Inns are usually pretty reliable and this one was no different. Firstly, the location is great! It's in downtown Gainesville and relatively close to the airport and hospital. It's surrounded by... More

After my first stay at this hotel, I thought I found my go to hotel in Gainesville, things have changed in the short time that I last visited. The hotel now charges for parking, which I hate. They did not have my room ready when I arrived, despite my Hilton status and the person who arrived after me was able... More

The staff was informative and courteous, the rooms clean and fresh, we loved the beds and linens. We will stay ay Hampton Inns again. We enjoyed the happy hour, and also the free breakfast, and took snack bags for our road trip.

Great Stay, Clean Hotel, Great Suite, Couch, Walk in Shower. Will stay here again. Internet connection was weak and kept cutting out. Needed it for business. Did not report the issue though. Will take advantage of continental breakfast next time.
