“Great Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

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 well worth just accepting that issue.

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 every amenity I needed was right there. I will be coming to Gainesville for the next 4 years and will definitely stay at this hotel. The downtown area had so many great restaurants within 2 blocks of the hotel, yet the room was quiet and I never heard a peep from outside.

I will be coming back to Gainesville in June and will definitely stay here again.

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 was sort of wandering around looking at the selection. The kitchen supervisor approached me and asked, " would you like a fresh, warm biscuit?" and handed over one from a tray she had just taken out of the oven. Mmmmm. Coffee 24/7 was a huge benefit. Breakfast was moderate but well done.

The pool was a bit small and the jacuzzi was not open, but we had no plans to use it anyway.

Only negative is that the heating unit in the bedroom was very loud. I would have gladly turned it off at night but my sister (who weight 90 pounds soaking wet) was "cold".

Over all the BEST stay I have had at a hotel in a long, long time.

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 weekdays you might as well just valet or be prepared to walk a few extra blocks. Great restaurants/bars close by, yet the room was very quiet!

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 clean room with a great view! If you need to stay in Gainesville for a game or whatever, this is the place to stay!

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 lots of dining establishments (lots of variety!) and is not far from the Hippodrome. It's a busy area, but there was virtually no street noise to speak of.

The hotel itself is clean and well-maintained. The front desk staff were very helpful and quite friendly, and I have no major complaints about the room or my stay. The hotel was very quiet and I got a very comfortable night's rest. One perk (for me): free internet. And for me, at least, the internet was very reliable and had good connection, so no complaints there, either. I also appreciated the continental breakfast.

If I'm in the Gainesville area in the future, I'd be willing to stay at this Hampton Inn again.
