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...

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.

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.

A former student's wedding had us awaiting the ceremony and we chose Hampton Inn & Suites for the closeness to the setting. The front desk was helpful and valet service went over and beyond to accommodate our coming and going. Fresh healthy lemon water and chocolate chip cookies were available in the lobby. Our room was comfortable and my husband...

The Hampton Inn & Suites in downtown Gainesville is a fantastic choice -- especially if you are attending a show at the Hippodrome Theatre, a mere short walk away. There are also excellent restaurants within a two or three minute walk. So it's perfect for parking the car and walking.

Great stay enjoyed the pizzeria downstairs and many bars in walking distance. Fine wine and dinning close to the room. Beds was very comfortable and view over looking pool was great. Staff was nice and helpful

This was the blocked off hotel for the conference I attended. It was very modern, up-to-date, and the staff was extremely nice. They were naturally nice, not fake-nice. The room was clean and efficient. I wish hotels didn't have dark carpets, but oh well. I enjoyed my stay and would stay here again! The hotel is within walking distance of...

Walking distance to most good restaurants. Not far from UF. The staff is very nice, as well as the valet service. I would stay here again when in Gainesville. The rooms are nice, beds are very comfortable.
