This property exceeded my expectations in all areas. Friendly and helpful staff, great breakfast. Located in downtown with many walking distance local options for food and drink. Big Lou's pizza is a must stop along with the Hippodrome Theatre.

We stopped here on way to Atlanta from Sarasota area and stopped here with no reservation. We loved the cool location and was able to walk to dinner. The staff was amazing. When I checked out I left my laptop and case near the valet. They found it for me and kept it safe until a friend picked it up... More

Been staying at this hotel everytime come to UF- nice facility, clean room - they could do a better job at front desk - it's a nicely located in downtown- with a lots of option for restaurant. It's overprice for sure. I like their corner rooms- backside rooms are not quite.

I used to like staying here because it is very close to good restaurants and night life, and there was an included happy hour daily with complimentary beer and wine. But the beer/wine has been removed, the internet is intermittent and slow, and there are homeless people outside of the hotel very close to the entrance making safety a concern.... More

Location and Parking: The location of this Hampton is great if you want to be in downtown Gainesville. There are many restaurants and bars for you to enjoy just outside your door. But like most downtowns, parking is an issue. The Hampton does not provide parking for its guests. It does provide valet for @$15.00. There is a city garage... More

Traveling late back to Vero Beach and it was time to get off the road. All other properties were booked up so we tried the Hampton and got the last room. The suite was a real treat. The sleeping area felt cozy just like home. Breakfast was good but the service area was very small and the layout confusing. Might... More

We had a really nice room. Checked in for 2days to see my son for his birthday. Suite was great and clean. I thought it would be nice to stay near downtown restaurants. I had no idea the homeless problem was so bad at this location. If you have to self park after valet closes down at 11pm be sure... More

Very happy with this hotel (Gainesville, downtown). Walking distance to tons of restaurants and bars downtown, short drive to nice parks and museums. Staff was friendly, and as always (at least in my experience), the hotel was clean.

A group of friends stayed here to celebrate New Years Eve in downtown Gainesville. The hotel room was very nice, spacious and clean. It is close to a lot of restaurants and nightlife - all within walking distance so no need to drive car. The hotel has valet parking or you can park in a parking lot a short walk... More

We've been staying with Hampton Inn for a while now and this was the best so far: great location, super clean and fresh, and nice facilities. It's true that parking is paid, but it's downtown, and we found a free spot on the street around the block - no big deal. The reception clerk provide a map with local restaurants... More
