We stayed over a Friday and Saturday night. Street fair made it somewhat inconvenient, but the service if the staff made up for any exterior issues. Hotel is very clean and perfect location for downtown visitors.

This place surprised me - I did not expect a Hampton to be this good.. I reserved a suite and it was large and comfortable. If you are a business person doing work, I would recommend getting the suite. The rooms were very quiet and the beds extremely comfortable. The staff was always helpful and friendly. Lots of great places to eat or have a drink within a block. Thehotel is about 2 miles from the UF campus. I will definitely stay here again.

Only downside: one of the smallest pools I have every seen and you have to park in a parking garage around the corner – neither was a big deal.

This is a great location if you're working with UF, and the staff is great. I was there for 12 days for what could have been a pretty chaotic business trip. The manager and staff went the extra mile for me on a couple of things that made it a lot smoother. Breakfast is good too. Thank you!

I trust trip advisor explicitly, this site has never done me wrong. My hubby was a bit hesitant about the price of this hotel foe being in such a small town.....even HE was impressed!

Friendly staff, super clean and spacious (beautiful for the price), a really nice selection of free breakfast foods! And it is in the prettiest location. Nice restaurants across and down the street. We even got a coupon for a free appetizer at Harry's!

Oh, and the beds are to die for comfortable!

I was more than happy with the room and the staff. The room was extra clean and the staff was so friendly. All the eaterys around the Hotel were great! The breakfast was above what I expected and the breakfast to go bags at the front desk were so handy.
Over all when it is great it is great. Way to go Hampton Inn Team!
And Thank You very much!

room was nice. king bed ,free wireless,clean and updated
free breakfast was one of the best . Fresh waffles, eggs,sausage.
biscuits and gravy, cereal large selection of coffee and teas plus freshfruit and yogurt.
parking is around the corner
If you have buisness downtown this is the place to stay
downtown Gainesville is cute. but very small
we were here for convocation and move in at UF.
we would have been better off on the other side of town
where wal-mart, cvs,walgreens,the mall are. because we had to do some shopping before we left

I have now stayed in this hotel 3 times and will again when I return to Gainesvile. The hotel is new with nice rooms and amenities. Beds are very comfy; they give you free internet; and they have great cable channels. The rates are reasonable and include a nice breakfast every morning. It is located downtown in walking distance to the best Gainesville restaurants and is also near campus. I understand that the hotel books to capacity for Gator games - so book ahead.
