“3 star hotel - decent clean rooms - quiet - rates are grossly overpriced - read below”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

A 3 star hotel at best. Not a 4 star hotel. Clean rooms. Quiet and located right off 75.

It will still take you 20min and 4 miles to the center of town in bumper to bumper traffic most of the day/evening
to get to center of town in traffic.

After a paying a whopping 187.00 a night because of a UF scrimmage game in town (what a joke - was visiting a student in school and not attending this game) and could get no other reservations at any decent price in Gainesville - NO 3 star hotel anywhere in Florida is worth 187.00 per night.

I saw people shellshocked upon arrival
when they were quoted this price. Its shameful and despicable that these 3 star hotel jack the prices up for a weekend night just because they are booked. I feel violated as a customer to have to pay these rates and would not recommend paying more then 125 per night in any 3 star hotel anywhere in Gainesville. My stays at the hampton inn will be limited from here on out. Had to get 2 queen beds and could not get reservations at the downtown hampton. The pricing of hotels in Gainesville reads like a conspiracy to extract the maximum from the paying customer. The quality and availability of accomodations in Gainesville leaves a lot to be desired and they are in desperate need of large accomodations at reasonable prices for visiting family members in this college town.

Business traveler looking to stay with in the per day limit. Picked this location for price and just off the interstate. Checked in after a long day on the road, the two ladies at the front desk were very friendly. All of a sudden I was in a better mood. Nice location, clean room and good breakfast. There's one's on my list next time I travel to Gainesville

Room Tip: great location-just off the interstate. Near restuarants.

We stayed at the Hampton on the way to Disney. Within a mile of the hotel is EVERY kind of food that you could want!!! Easy on and off of Interstate.The room was excellent, the staff was helpful and friendly and the price was fair. We started our day with a very nice breakfast.We will stay at this Hotel again.

Very good - convenient access from I-75, Smooth check-in, excellent wifi, good breakfast, clean, convenient access, nice duvets, only downside was that only one of two treadmills was working. Highly recommend.

Hampton Inn of Gainesville, FL was so easy to find right off I75 with no cross city travel. Tucked back away from a main blvd. it offered quiet relaxation in a clean and pleasant environment. Stay here if you are passing through. It's great.

The Hampton Inn in Gainesville Florida is a wonderful place to stay. It's directly off I-75 so the location is great for UF or Newberry. Staff is super nice, clean, hospitable Inn, with a welcome lobby, complimentary breakfast and coffee bar. Rooms are adequate space with clean furnishings, new bath fixtures. It was very easy to enjoy a night's stay there.
