Horrible experience with housekeeping and never got a comp. too bad for the Hampton Inn I will never ever stay there again. The location is great and the front desk staff was nice but the housekeeping was awful. I would never pay $190 per night for such a filthy room. I was disgusting he had to sleep on the floor

I spent one night at this facility and was very pleased with the location, service, and quiet experienced during my stay. This hotel is located in the center of the downtown area of Gainesville. This allows for easy walks to many restaurants located nearby.

We came for a one night stay in gainsville and had a wonderful time. Really enjoyed the location of the hotel. Really good restaurants nearby. Hampton Inn breakfasts are one of are favorite things and it did not disappoint. Would love to come back sometime!

My family and I stays at this Hampton due to a funeral at a downtown funeral home. We picked this hotel due to it's location and out good experience with Hampton Inns in the past. We found the room clear and quiet. The included breakfast buffet was adequate to get us going for the day. I would stay at this Hampton Inn again when we visit Gainesville

We always chose Hampton Inns when we travel. Their comforters and pillows are awesome! The complimentary breakfast has a wide selection, something for everyone. The employees are very friendly and accommodating.

I have to travel to Gainesville for business. The hotel is a perfect location and the staff is fantastic. Couldn't be any nicer or more accommodating. There is no bell staff, but the hotel is small enough it is manageable.
My only "negative" is that there is no room service, but there are numerous restaurants nearby and frozen dinners for purchase in the lobby - if your room has a microwave, which some do. The only delivery food service I saw in the hotel's book was for a burger joint down the street.
The parking garage is not the most convenient, but it is acceptably close if you can drop off and pick up your luggage at the hotel's front door if it is more than you can manage for a block or so.
The king "suite" is laid out well for working - with two chairs so colleagues can work on either side. Those rooms have both a refrigerator and microwave, which do help for the late working night when you realize too late you haven't eaten. No cutlery or plates but plastic cutlery is available at the front desk. Paper towels are provided under the sink near the refrigerator, which is helpful.
The beds are comfortable and in sum, a very comfortable spot.
