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

We enjoyed everything about this hotel. Beds were comfortable, large rooms, bathrooms large as well. Complimentary breakfast had lots of variety and great coffee. Located close to all restaurants on Main Street. Really enjoyed it, would stay here again, if ever back in Gainesville.

My hotel was very attractive and located in an area with good restaurants that one could easily walk to. The hotel was very clean throughout. My room was nice, and the bathroom had a lovely furniture vanity. In convenient spots in the hotel, colorful small sofas and UF pictures let one sit and contemplate that one was truly in Gator...

Arrived late in the evening after driving 5 hours and circled the hotel looking for a place to park and check in. There is no place to park for check in. In fact, there is no parking unless you want to park in the detached public garage next door and walk past the homeless people asking you for money in... More

Stayed here recently on business. It is right in town making it convenient for walking to downtown dining options. The parking is apparently limited to valet which adds to the cost by $14 currently. I usually rely on a local Y for lap swim, but this facility has a swim spa--essentially a swimming treadmill. This is great for fitness, but... More

As I will continue to travel to the market for business, I will continue to consider the Hampton as it has a great location. But the bug and dirty linen has me thinking twice. Just a little gross. Which is unfortunate as the rest of the hotel was friendly, nice, and great location.

There is no parking lot at this hotel. The only choices are either valet parking $14 or the municipal parking structure around the block for $9. I did not know this before arriving. It was convenient to use the parking structure but I did not see that on the website.

The room furnishing are nice, but a little worn. The beds are super hard. Housekeeping was way too early for me. The hotel could be cleaner but it was not awful. Front desk staff was capable but did not make me feel welcome, or that it was a pleasure to greet me. I would definitely stay someplace else next time.
