It was very disconcerting to find live roaches in the room and in the closet. We took video of live roaches, and killed one and delivered to front desk. When it was reported to the front desk, their "compensation" was Honors points. Found their lack of concern troubling. The location is excellent, right across the street from the Alachua County...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW

When I travel I prefer to stay at a Hampton Inn, so I've seen my fair share of their hotels. I always have a good experience with them, but of all the Hampton Inns I've stayed at this one was the nicest and most beautiful I've seen! It's in a lovely spot and the rooms are just so nice. The...

Great location in downtown Gainesville that is close to campus. Quiet area but lots to do within close walking distance. Hotel staff was extremely helpful and courteous. They were happy to answer my questions regarding parking as well as recommendations for local restaurants. Despite being downtown, parking was easy enough to find.

I've stayed at this hotel many times for business. I even stayed there for 6 weeks straight once. This last trip was terrible. New unfriendly staff. They act like they are doing you a favor when they check you in or check you out. Was charged for complimentary internet service. It's the only hotel downtown so I guess they have...

Stayed at the hotel for the night while visiting UF. Staff were great. GM stopped by to say hello and introduce himself. Rooms were clean and recently renovated. Would recommend you stay at this hotel.

If you are looking for a downtown hotel within walking distance of many restaurants, bars and nightlife, this is the hotel for you. We love being able to walk back to the hotel after dinner/wine. This hotel gives you the opportunity to do that. Many varieties of restaurants nearby. Also, on Wednesday nights there is a local farmers market across...

Good morning John M, That you for your great comments. Our location is indeed ideal for the visitor to Gainesville, providing multiple options in the evening as well as easy access to the University. The Farmers Market takes place every Wednesday, and the attendance appears to grow weekly. Next time you're in town, try the muffins at one of the...

Nice hotel, great location in the heart of town. You do have to pay for parking. Room was nice but had noise at night outside the window. Breakfast was good. Very convenient to UF and lots of restaurants and bars. We would stay here again.

Good morning Greg C, Thank you for your comments. Our goal is to exceed expectations and we may have missed yours.

This hotel is a sub-average Hampton Inn but it's located in downtown Gainesville. I had issues with construction in the hotel, room not being cleaned, and access to the hotel due to MLK-related activities in the city. There was no forewarning for the road closures or construction.

We stay at a lot of Hampton Inns and this one is very nice. The hotel is in the process of renovations so the lobby and breakfast area weren't completed yet.

Good morning PBJ373, Thank you for your kind words about our hotel and especially our staff. We have completed all of the renovations now and the hotel is spectacular. As you mentioned, our hotel is in an ideal location, close to both dining and the University. Please come back soon and see our "brand new" hotel. Safe travels, Brad

This was a disappointment. The hotel was under construction and the two slow elevators were almost not functioning at times. The tiny pool "spa" area was also used as a smoking area for workers and people off the street. The breakfast food was inedible, expensive parking. The fan in our room wasn't working. Too bad, as the location is good.

Bettinab739, Please accept my apologies for your experiences during your recent stay. As you mentioned, our hotel is going through a beautiful renovation and as a result, the elevators might have been overused.
