Very clean hotel with a nice welcoming staff. Arrived during the afternoon food offering and my family enjoyed the coke in real coke bottles in a tub in the lobby. Valet parking is required and a bit expensive for a college town, but their really in no option to self park. The room was clean and well maintained.

If you are visiting the University of Florida this is the hotel you want to stay at. The staff is friendly and helpful, the rooms are well-appointed, comfortable and clean and the location is walking distance to the best restaurants.

We chose this location to stay overnight for an appointment with a physician at University of Florida. The hotel is convenient to the University Hospital (8 minutes drive) yet in a great downtown section, out of the usual madness of chain restaurants and fast food. Lots of fantastic local eateries on the same block, makes for a great stroll and... More

We stayed at the Hampton Inn for one night. Although the hotel was fully booked, our room was quiet. The bed was very comfortable and every corner and space was immaculate. Breakfast which was included was better than most. All hotel employees we encountered were very friendly and professional. This hotel is very well run and maintained! We would definitely... More

Great location, great restaurants and bar scene downtown. The staff was very helpful. Breakfast is fine, except I will note that when items ran low close to end of the breakfast time, there was no "reloading."

The Hampton Inn and Suites has an excellent location (close to great restaurants and bars), comfortable and clean rooms, and nice perks (like free gummy bears in the lobby). Came with a conference group meeting at UF, and would definitely recommend this hotel.

Nice property, great downtown location. Cookies, snack, and water are a nice touch in the lobby. Coffee service was present as well. Parking is a tricky thing, but manageable. Room are good size, but the bathroom could have been cleaner. Don't like sitting on the throne and seeing hairs on floor and in the tub.

I have stayed here a few times over the past 5-6 years and in the past had great experiences. I travel a lot and stay in hotel rooms approximately 200 nights per year, so I have a lot of other hotels to compare to. During my recent stay, I was very dissatisfied with the service I received. The hotel is... More

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.
