Not a pool but a large hot tub which was fine for me. They call it a pool but the water is 104 and has bubbles. A litte issue with sticking doors but a beautiful facility and very friendly staff.

I made a reservation for a Studio room and was given a different, smaller room upon check in. I was charged the same price. The hotel staff told me that third party reservations do not always carry over correctly to their system. It took multiple phone calls and messages for the manager to get an additional room to accommodate all of us. It was extremely frustrating. And we had a large roach in our room to top it off.

Great room and location. Our stay was very comfor

Pros: Location and cleanliness.
Location: A lot of high-end restaurants just outside the door. Harry's was very good and recommended.
The hotel made sure all our needs were met. We got better treatment there than some pricier hotels.

This was a very nice hotel. The staff was welcoming and helpful.

The only negative thing was the pool and whirlpool area. The pool was small and the whirlpool was under construction. I did like the fact it was a salt water pool.

Good hotel, great location.

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
The Hampton in is conveniently located in Gainesville. Just close enough to the University but not actually on campus. Its not close enough to walk to the stadium during a football game but close enough for a cab or bus.
