“Now this is the way it should be.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2011

I was more than happy with the room and the staff. The room was extra clean and the staff was so friendly. All the eaterys around the Hotel were great! The breakfast was above what I expected and the breakfast to go bags at the front desk were so handy.
Over all when it is great it is great. Way to go Hampton Inn Team!
And Thank You very much!

room was nice. king bed ,free wireless,clean and updated
free breakfast was one of the best . Fresh waffles, eggs,sausage.
biscuits and gravy, cereal large selection of coffee and teas plus freshfruit and yogurt.
parking is around the corner
If you have buisness downtown this is the place to stay
downtown Gainesville is cute. but very small
we were here for convocation and move in at UF.
we would have been better off on the other side of town
where wal-mart, cvs,walgreens,the mall are. because we had to do some shopping before we left

I have now stayed in this hotel 3 times and will again when I return to Gainesvile. The hotel is new with nice rooms and amenities. Beds are very comfy; they give you free internet; and they have great cable channels. The rates are reasonable and include a nice breakfast every morning. It is located downtown in walking distance to the best Gainesville restaurants and is also near campus. I understand that the hotel books to capacity for Gator games - so book ahead.

We've seen a lot of hotels in our 5 weeks in the USA but this was the best one. Excellent, friendly and helpful staff (esp. Dustin) / great clean rooms / a wonderful spa and a convenient downtown parking space / awesome spa/pool. Great restaurants and bars around the corner.

We have had the pleasure to stay at this Hampton 5 times within the last year and I hate to say this because I will probably have trouble booking rooms now…but I love this place! EVERYONE is so nice …rooms are clean, bathrooms clean, decor is well done, GREAT location, with drinks and dinner options steps away, parking garage just round the corner…it is our Gainesville home away from home. With one Gator in school and one more on the way there…we plan on making DOWNTOWN Hampton our home base.
THANKS Hampton…we will be back GO GATORS

Was attending UF Freshman Preview and selected the downtown location instead of the highway exit location which I've stayed at before and did not love (being kind). The downtown Hampton Inn feels and looks like a brand new hotel. The neighborhood is vibrant with energy flowing from all the bars and restaurants and parks that line the street. Front desk service was excellent at check in and every time I had to stop there over the 2 days I was there. Breakfast was first rate if you stay away from the gross eggs that every Hampton seems to serve (there must be one giant batch that they just keep serving day after day in all the Hampton's, I don't know--I never see anybody eat them) and stick with the fresh waffles and bacon. Room was perfect, clean, comfortable, nicely appointed well-stocked, quiet and everything worked. What more could anybody want for a reasonable price. It's not the cheapest room in town but it's top quality for a very fair price.

We made a pit stop here driving from Cincinnati to Disney when we could not stand to drive any longer. We arrived at 9 pm and worried about parking in a downtown setting. Luckily, there was a parking garage next door (5 dollars), which made it very easy. The hotel was great, and check in was a breeze. We didn't explore much, but the room was well decorated and clean (except for a few hairs I found under the sheets). We left early the next morning, but found that Gainesville is georgeous and the University of Florida is just minutes away. We stopped there to check out the field and campus. Overall, a great stop!
