Did not know what to expect, but from conversations with others, this hotel beats the local Hilton hands down. Not only are the room rates cheaper, but breakfast and wi-fi are included, coffee all day, free cookies in the afternoon, and free alcohol from 6-7pm Mon-Thursday! Brilliant for conference access (60 seconds walk to the convention centre) and only 20... More

This is a very good place to stay while visiting Columbia. Distance to the airport is about 20 min drive, depending on traffic, bedrooms are large, WiFi is free (IPhone connection intermittent but netbook fine), great breakfast (included) and free coffee, fruit and cookies all day long! It is very convenient for the Convention Centre. However, it is not cheap!... More

Hotel was in a convenient location to restaurants, shopping, bars etc. Hotel was very clean and would definitely stay there again. Location is very easy to get to from Interstate Highway 20 to its downtown Columbia South Carolina location. Parking is somewhat limited but we were able to walk to restaurants, shopping and bars when we needed to. I would... More

I booked this room for the Texas A&M v. S. Carolina game knowing that Hampton Inn's were nice clean hotels. I was pleasantly surprised to see that this hotel was exceptionally clean, with evening drinks and a great breakfast! The location was also outstanding as there are numerous upscale eateries, and sports bars within walking distance. The only odd thing... More

Clean, quiet, comfortable and in a location you can walk to many evening places in a very short walk. Seemed to be very safe area and would stay here again if I had business near this area. Very surprized how quiet it was to sleep even though many businesses open late in area and the streets had plenty of cars... More

We stayed here for a weekend while dropping our son off to college. The hotel was clean, the staff was friendly. The pool could have been better. Very small and not very welcoming. It looked a bit neglected. Such a great location, near lots of restaurants and shops. I would recommend this hotel, especially if you don't plan to swim... More

The room we checked into, was recently renovated. The new carpet/glue smell was so strong it burned my eyes and nose. We had to air out the room before we could go to sleep.

The team at this hotel is great and makes you feel very welcome. I was welcomed to my room personally by the Area Director of Sales Holly Boozer. The leadership at the hotel makes it one of the best Hampton Inns in the country.
