We lived for a while in Gainesville and wanted to bring our new grandson to town to meet everyone. The staff was just wonderful in setting up a room for us to meet with everyone. They made sure we had everything we needed and were comfortable.
I also travel for business and stay at Hamtons a fair amount. This is one of the nicest I have stayed at. i particularly like the breakfast this one provides.

A 3 star hotel at best. Not a 4 star hotel. Clean rooms. Quiet and located right off 75.

It will still take you 20min and 4 miles to the center of town in bumper to bumper traffic most of the day/evening
to get to center of town in traffic.

After a paying a whopping 187.00 a night because of a UF scrimmage game in town (what a joke - was visiting a student in school and not attending this game) and could get no other reservations at any decent price in Gainesville - NO 3 star hotel anywhere in Florida is worth 187.00 per night.

I saw people shellshocked upon arrival
when they were quoted this price. Its shameful and despicable that these 3 star hotel jack the prices up for a weekend night just because they are booked. I feel violated as a customer to have to pay these rates and would not recommend paying more then 125 per night in any 3 star hotel anywhere in Gainesville. My stays at the hampton inn will be limited from here on out. Had to get 2 queen beds and could not get reservations at the downtown hampton. The pricing of hotels in Gainesville reads like a conspiracy to extract the maximum from the paying customer. The quality and availability of accomodations in Gainesville leaves a lot to be desired and they are in desperate need of large accomodations at reasonable prices for visiting family members in this college town.

Dear worldtraveler34645,

I'm sorry you think we do not rate higher than a 3 star hotel. we certainly do our best to please every guest that walks through our doors.

During certain times of the year traffic is terrible in Gainesville, we are nicknamed the NYC of Florida. During our summer months, it is not quite as bad.

The rates, as with every hotel in Gainesville, are set far in advance. As soon as we know special event dates the rates are set accordingly. We understand not everyone attends the special events, but I doubt you expect hotels in New York to change their rates for guests visiting during New Years but has another agenda.

Once again, I'm sorry you were not pleased during your visit and hope you will give us, or any Hampton, a chance to reddem our name in your eyes.

Safe Travels,

Ryan Tate

Business traveler looking to stay with in the per day limit. Picked this location for price and just off the interstate. Checked in after a long day on the road, the two ladies at the front desk were very friendly. All of a sudden I was in a better mood. Nice location, clean room and good breakfast. There's one's on my list next time I travel to Gainesville

Room Tip: great location-just off the interstate. Near restuarants.
