Really enjoyed our stay in this hotel. The location was perfect, right in downtown Gainesville. Even though we had to pay for parking, it was a reduced rate, and a guaranteed spot, so didn't mind that in the end. Would definitely stay again.

Very nice Hampton in Downtown Gainesville. Easily walkable to many restaurants, and staff gives good recs. Even though we were fans of the opposing team, we were treated exceptionally well. Fun game day reception with complimentary cocktails and snacks. Hotel was clean and staff was professional. Hotel provides a free shuttle to stadium on game day and Roberta, our driver,... More

This is the only hotel I now consider for business stay in Gainesville. My firm spends a lot of time recruiting at UF, so the location -- less than 2 miles from campus -- is ideal. (And no running into students at dinner/drinks!) The downtown area is safe, and provides entertainment and food. The hotel is clean and quiet, and... More

The hotel is beautiful. It is impeccably maintained and staffed with great people. We stay at this hotel several times per year, during football season, and couldn't be happier. The hotel is situated downtown, very close to quaint shops, several lovely restaurants and an array of bars that would fit anybody's taste. We are recurring guests, and as such, have... More

room was very small, clean but small and the price was crazy expensive for the services offered. will not stay at this location ever again. there was no restaurant or bar. I should have done more research before making the reservation. I blame myself for paying to stay here.

Had a very pleasant weekend stay for a HS reunion. The staff was friendly and helpful, the room was clean, comfortable and quiet, and when I forgot an item after departure they were very helpful in returning it to me.

Considering the wonderful review I wrote last month about my visit to the Hampton Inn Baltimore Airport, even I myself am surprised by how aweful my stay was at this particular location. This trip was a church trip set up to accomodate a bus load of people from Orlando. Unfortunately I joined the group later as I had to attend... More

Alex was awesome. She helped me with directions, a restaurant recommendation and with signing up for HHilton Honors. She was so friendly and professional. The room was clean, quiet and the breakfast was heartier than the usual stale danish and coffee. Great hotel
