Thank you for a wonderful stay. I wish Hampton could work out an arrangement with UF to provide a bus shuttle service from Hotel to O Dome. This would cut down on traffic and make the visit perfect! This location is great with regards to restaurants. Hampton has started a valet service which was a fantastic idea for this spot,... More

Great places to eat within walking distance of hotel. Great staff, went above and beyond, gave recomendations on places to eat and why, very nice and helpful. Staff made me feel like a VIP. Made sure everything was perfect during my stay. Clean, quite and comfortable rooms. If I am ever in Gainesville again, I will stay here for sure.

Great location near a variety of restaurants, great staff, convenient, and centrally located for my purpose for being in the Gainsville area. The rest of my comments are to get to 200 character. Nice hotel.

We stayed at this hotel while visiting family nearby for Thanksgiving. Downtown Gainesville was very empty that week. Regardless, I requested a quiet room since I have young children and was placed on the 6th floor away from the street. There were no disturbances. Also, the hotel has recently established valet to the parking garage as most complaints were having... More

Booked this hotel for a birthday weekend/football game weekend with 2 other families. We have stayed at Hampton Inns before so knew what to expect. This hotel, although a mid-priced chain, really exceeded what we thought we would get. When we checked in late on Friday night, there were cookies and cupcakes waiting!

You really can't find a better place to stay in Gainesville unless you happen to live there. I graduated from UF several years ago and up until recently was able to stay with friends in graduate programs. Now that they've all graduated, the Hampton Inn was the next choice. The staff were incredibly helpful, the room was comfortable and clean... More

Great experience! Clean and very helpful! The breakfast had a nice variety of fresh fruits, yogurts, egg dishes, and we could even make waffles. The bed was very comfortable. They actually wash all bedding in each room after each guest's stay...including the beds you don't sleep on.
