I was very pleased with the Hampton Inn Columbia, Historic District. I usually stay at the Hilton, but had an unexpected problem with the reservation (they had no record or reservation) so I booked The nearby Hampton. The rooms were nice, but somewhat smaller than the Hilton and they do not take pets which is the main reason I prefer... More

I stayed 3 nights at this Hampton Inn. They put my room on the 5th floor, towards Gervais street and I thought I was going to die, the cars and motocyclists go up and down all night long, racing their engines and pipes, The 2nd night, I couldn't sleep and was fed up, she moved me at 2AM. Then, they... More

Dear Maureen, I would like to first thank you for choosing our hotel for your recent accommodation needs. Being in the heart of the Vista is great because you are steps from a multitude of attractions, but that also does keep us near the downtown traffic as well. On your next visit we could try to get you to a... More

This hotel was selected for its location and the proximity to the University of South Carolina. We were more than satisfied with the entire experience. There is a variety of restaurants within comfortable walking distance. For the value we were more than satisfied and would strongly consider staying here again in the future.

Staying in room 319 thru the weekend - no A/C - they tried to reset last night - now they are doing again - not going through one more night without - and of course the manager is out until Monday - should have stayed at a Marriott property - won't happen again!

I travel a lot for work but don't typically stay at Hampton Hotels so I was not sure what to expect when I arrived. I was very pleasantly surprised with the quality accommodations and customer service provided at this location. Speaking of location, this hotel is located within walking distance of the convention center and many shops and restaurants. Parking... More

I have stayed at this hotel several times through the years with my family and for business. It has always been clean and comfortable. Even last summer (2014), they kept the hotel clean and quiet while completely renovating the rooms. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the free breakfast is popular and filling!

I stay at this hotel when I am in Columbia on business because it's close to major freeways, the university, and historic section and is within walking distance to good restaurants and shopping. The staff are very friendly and courteous. WiFi is free and has good band width for large files!

Visiting our daughter at USC and stayed here for the first time. Great location for Vista, state house and the University. Friendly staff, clean rooms and convenient parking. Highly recommend Bourbon near the state house and COLA and Motor Supply in Vista for dinners.
