Steps from the lively square around the Palladium Theatre and any number of good restaurants (we recommend Liquid Ginger but Harry's also looked great), this hotel showcases Gainesville as a lively college town. For us that always spells fun even though our college years are long, long gone. The staff was superb -- knowledgeable, friendly, and really with it! We...

This hotel is an exceptional property located in the "new' downtown area of Gainesville, Florida. There are terrific places for dinner, drinks and music just steps outside the hotel. The staff is excellent - very polite and helpful without being cloying. If you are going to be in Gainesville, I highly recommend this hotel.

This hotel is by far the best place to stay downtown. It is right in the middle of everything. It is clean and ever so well-kept and the staff is top-notch. The rooms are extremely clean and comfortable and always made up when you return in the afternoon. The staff is very kind and always ready to help and extremely...

We stayed at this Hampton Inn while attending our daughter's graduation. The hotel was very clean and offered a continental breakfast. It was also located right on the town square within walking distance to restaurants.

I was greeted warmly be every member of management, reception and staff. The manager generously offered a conference room for me to meet with a client. Everyone smiled! The location is terrific, close to courthouse, downtown offices and many restaurants.

The hotel overall was pleasant as one would expect from accommodations like this. Breakfast and staff were ok, but certainly not great. My room unfortunately had ticks, likely in the bed. I reported finding a tick on me both mornings. The first morning I thought it was possible that I picked it up outside the prior day but reported it...

Thank you so much for being our guest, you business and feedback are highly appreciated. That having been said, I am sorry that we did not leave you entirely with a positive impression of our hotel. We have had our pest control company examine the entire floor to make sure and bug issues are found and resolved. There is no...

Situated in historic Gainesville with lots of restaurants, shops and bars within walking distance. Staying on a Wednesday night was a treat, as Gainesville hosts an urban farmers market just outside Hamptons front door. Room was clean and I will definitely be back. I used digital checkin and the only comment that I have is that you can't tell which...

I have stayed here three times. I love the place. Nice rooms. Great location. Clean. But, here's the reason for the bad review: I made a reservation 10 months in advance of the stay. It required a $399 deposit, refundable if cancelled in advance of stay. I cancelled the reservation online, seven months before the stay, receiving a cancellation confirmation...

We enjoyed everything about this hotel. Clean, beautiful décor, food, linens and the staff. Britanny gets 5 stars. The location was ideal [downtown Gainesville]. The night life was great. The parking was ideal, could have been closer to hotel, but the trip was outstanding! We ate, enjoyed the night life and rested. What more can you ask? I forgot, we...
