Booked this hotel for a birthday weekend/football game weekend with 2 other families. We have stayed at Hampton Inns before so knew what to expect. This hotel, although a mid-priced chain, really exceeded what we thought we would get.
When we checked in late on Friday night, there were cookies and cupcakes waiting! The front desk staff is very sweet and accommodating. I got to my room (219) only to discover that it was not only next the elevator but the room right where the "happy hours" and breakfast takes place. In other words, the room was right next to the most happening place in the hotel! They promptly changed our room when I asked.
The room is your standard Hampton room. Adequate in size (we are 2 adults and 2 children) and clean. The bathroom has plenty of storage and is easy to maneuver.
The location of the hotel is THE BEST!! You are right in downtown Gainesville so are within walking distance to many great restaurants (Yes, Gainesville has those and a lot of them too!!) and a Starbucks! We did not get in our car all weekend! The hotel has a shuttle to Ben Hill Griffin stadium and they dropped us off behind The Swamp restaurant and picked us up right after the game at the Kangaroo gas station. Did not wait one second for the shuttle either!
Can't wait to go back to Gainesville and stay at the Hampton Inn Downtown (beware because there is another in town off of I-75) and GO GATORS!
