Consistent with other Hampton Inn properties. It's why you choose Hampton Inn. They just installed their digital key program as well. Close to everything in down town Gainesville. I bet it would be fun to stay here for a game. Valet parking.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 7 December 2016

Valet Parking was prompt and staff was courteous. End-room suite was spacious, immaculate, and comfortable. 2nd floor breakfast lounge and workout center layout provided a great space to have breakfast and get some morning work done before heading out. Great location in the heard of downtown (about a 3-5 minute Uber ride from campus). Within a two-block radius of this...

Brad M, General Manager at Hampton Inn & Suites Gainesville-Downtown, responded to this review

What I wish every Hampton was like is music to my ears. Our location is perfect for business, dining, and access to the University. Our staff is committed to exceeding our customers expectations. Our renovations are days away from completion. We look forward to seeing you again soon to experience the new Hampton Inn Gainesville Downtown. Thank you.

UF parents will love the location and value when rooms are available but booking she's requires persistence and patience. Restaurants nearby are good quality and great value, valet service is both convenient and reliable.

The Hampton Inn in downtown Gainesville is the most well maintained, cleanest Hampton Inn I ever have stayed in. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful - similar to what you would expect in a hotel costing much more.

Good location, close to restaurants etc. No on site parking but valet service offered. Room and amenities were excellent although cooling was a little noisy. Bottled water available on arrival. Excellent breakfast.

This hotel is in the perfect location for dinning out and visiting the college campus. The staff is friendly and the rooms are nice. Free breakfast where can you go wrong. I felt it was a little pricey for the amount of time but I do not regret my choice and would stay again.

Stayed here one night on business/pleasure trip and it was generally very good. Nice, modern, clean, pleasant staff and great breakfast, cookies and snacks.drink selection. In the thick of downtown, so great location with interesting local flavor in surrounding area. Would have given it five stars but the pool was down for maintenance. It's off-season, I understand, but it's also...

Lovely little hotel right at the heart of downtown Gainesville. Surrounded on all sides by an array of restaurants and bars. A super nice pizza place is also present just next to the place. So the location for me was ideal. The staff was very helpful and funny. Since I had flown in from a snowstorm ridden Boston, the weather...

This is not a full-service hotel..no room service and, despite the misleading photo, the advertised "pool" is ideal for Munchkins. The location in downtown Gainesville is close to restaurants, bars and the University of Florida. The "Hilton" beds are too high for children, smaller-stature adults (I'm 5'5" and had a hard time "climbing" onto my bed), and the elderly -...

Loved the location and the hotel. Nice view from the 6th floor. The pool is a bit small and in an alleyway. The breakfast was great, and had nice, long hours of availability. The maid service was amazing.
