I was grateful for front desk staffer Maggie's help beyond the call of duty when I left a drawer-full of clothing at the hotel. She ensured I got my things back in a super-timely fashion with a very detailed, personal level of help.

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.

The hotel was recommended by a family member. We liked all the restaurants in walking distance. I didn't like not knowing were to park. They offered valet parking but no sign were to park. Parking was not free unless you found a parking spot on the street. There was a parkIng garage .

The hotel was nice, the parking garage is close and not as expensive as expected. The room was quiet for the most part. Harry's Seafood next door is fantastic. Walking more than a couple of blocks away can be scary as the area is quite run down. We enjoyed our stay except the bed was too hard.

New and well maintained hotel with all the amenities typically found at a Hampton. In the heart of downtown. We brought bikes and rode them to UF on bike lanes. UF is very close by. Immediate downtown area was vibrant with many restaurants to chose from.

The hotel is right in the heart of downtown, convenient to the restaurants, etc, by walking. Very nice hotel overall. The room prices had gone up quite a bit since there were events in town that weekend, but the room provided was fantastic. Have stayed here several times and would recommend this hotel to anyone else.

Good bet for interestig, central location. Valet made suggestion for cost-free parking, which I appreciated, and offered to alert if the parking police tagged my vehicle. Remarkable! Efficient, friendly service experience throughout, and very acceptable breakfast even though I have high standards. Nice, modern feel without being cold.

Great location. Nice, newly decorated rooms. Good breakfast. This was our 6th stay at this hotel. We look forward to returning to Gainesville for the Gatornationals. We will try to book here again. While in Gainesville, try Amelia's Italian Restaurant. It's a block away for the Hampton Inn. Very good for dinner.
