A very new hotel, and such it's clean. Staff is very helpful and nice. Bed is comfortable. Free wifi good signal. Free breakfast that is not spectacular but adequate. Location, excellent. Parking valet overnight is $10. Heated salt water pool is available. Personally, I think they could have been a little bit more modern as far as room design goes,... More

After being turned away from a Hampton Inn that was full we were routed to the Hampton Inn at Gainesville along I 75. When we arrived at that location the desk clerk was running an audit so we would have to wait 1/2 hour to get a room (it was already past midnight). We then ventured to the Hampton Inn... More

After arriving as road weary travelers, we were so happy to be greeted so nicely by Chris at the front desk. He seemed to know who we were before we said our names; it was almost like magic! Our room was beautifully cleaned, sheets and duvets were soft and just washed . The breakfast staff could not have been more... More

We were in town for my husband's University of Florida convocation weekend. The room was perfect with enough beds for the five of us and very comfortable - which was very welcome after an unexpected layover in Houston. Breakfast was excellent, service was great and would stay again!

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.

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!
