My experience with Hampton Inn Gainesville was phenominal. The room was comfy and the breakfast was fabulous. The staff made me feel very welcomed. I enjoyed the festive decorations as well. It felt almost like home.

Dear Jennifer M,

Thank you for such an amazing review! We love it when our guests refer to us as their home away from home!
We work extremely hard to make everyone's stay as comfortable and hospitable as possible. We understand working away from home can be difficult and try to compensate for you.
Once again, thank you for choosing to stay with us and for your great review!

Come back to see us!

Safe Travels,

Ryan Tate

We stopped overnight on our way to south Florida. The hotel was clean and up to Hampton standards which isn't always the case off of I-75. Check in was quick and staff was knowledgeable of places to eat. We ended up staying in and having food delivery from Texas Roadhouse. Breakfast was as you would expect and fast. Overall it was an easy stop for us and a quiet nights sleep. Wi-Fi was super fast and the microwave/fridge were used as well. We will probably use this stop again.

Dear scorpette,

Thank you for taking the time to rate our hotel. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay with us and that it was convenient and up to par with the Hampton Standard!

I'm glad you took advantage of the discount from Texas Roadhouse as well as the delivery to the room. We work hard to get special perks and love to see our guests use them!

I hope you find yourself with us next time you're in the area!

Safe Travels,

Ryan Tate

I had a bad experience with the General Manager at this location. He was unwilling to work with me when I needed to cancel my reservations. He charged me for 2 nights stay even though the hotel was able to resale the room. He would not even consider giving me credit towards a future stay. It did not matter to him that I'm a Hilton Diamond Rewards Member, he was only interested in making money for his franchise. I can't imagine how he treats other customers.

Thank you for taking the time to post your comments. I regret that you did not stay at our property but rather are rating us on the restrictions associated with your reservation. It was a special event weekend that required a full prepayment and 30 day advance cancellation policy. You agreed to those terms when you booked for the Gator Football game weekend. I certainly understand that plans change, however the policy was enforced.

I believe that had you had the opportunity to stay with us you would have found our customer service outstanding, as reflected from other guests comments. We love our guests and enjoy the fun filled Gator football weekends we host for them.

We certainly would welcome you to stay with us in the future.
Safe and Happy travels!

Note: The GM at this property is a female so I am not sure who you spoke with, but they were just following the restriction policy.

Nice Hotel - Breakfast could have been better not up to usual Hampton Inn standards. Could just have been the day I was there. I usually LOVE Hampton Inns. This was a business trip and the conference hotel was booked so staff booked at Hampton Inn. Lots of great shopping and food choices around hotel.

Dear Naomi B,

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. Feedback always helps us improve.
I'm sorry our breakfast was not up to par, we usually go above and beyond the Hampton requirments when it comes to our breakfast. We usually receive great comments about our breakfast. I certainly hope it was just a bad day and not the norm for that morning.
just to instill hope, we are about to launch our brand new "Breakfast Remix!" If you frequent Gainesville, I hope you come back and try us out again. I'm sure you won't be disappointed. On top of that, I see you were traveling on business and do not have a corporate rate with us. Give us a call and we would be delighted to set you up with a special rate!

I hope to see you soon!

Safe Travels,

Ryan Tate

This is an excellent Hampton Inn. It looks very fresh, like it's just been built, or remodeled. The lobby is small, but it has a nice area to eat. We played cards at one of the tables before retiring to our room. It was well equipped and the beds were very comfortable. The bathroom was spacious, and the water pressure in the shower was great. Breakfast was fresh and plentiful. The location is good - tucked away from the busy street, and yet close to a lot of shopping and restaurants. We enjoyed our stay here and would recommend this hotel to others, and would stay here again!

Dear jeffb1650,

Thank you for taking the time to give our hotel such a wonderful review!
We did just finish our renovations about 4 months ago and I'm glad you like it! It was certainly a process but well worth it!
I'm glad you enjoyed our breakfast and it is only getting better! We are currently working on our "Breakfast Remix!" Be sure to come back for a visit and try the new style out! And don't forget your discount at many eateries near us!

Hope to see you soon!

I have stayed at this Hampton Inn many times since it opened a few years ago. The location is excellent as it is right off I75. It is nearby restaurants, shopping, and University of FL. The rooms are lovely and always very clean. Noise has never been a problem. I always sleep very well, however, I also travel with my own pillows. The staff is friendly and helpful. This past weekend we were there and they had decorated for fall and Halloween. And, the cookies were delicious.

Everything was first rate at this place, as you would expect for a hundred fifty a night. Beds and baths were very good, reefer and microwave in rooms, "free" breakfast was excellent-- you won't go wrong if you can afford it...Miss Gloria liked the vesry nice bathroom and the comfortable bed.
