At its core we're talking a Hampton Inn. Anyone who has stayed at one before knows pretty much what to expect. It's not the best Hampton, it's not the worst Hampton, but you're paying for the location (and the fact that there are not a ton of options in Columbia itself). Both times I've stayed I've had problems with the... More

Located in the Columbia Vista, this hotel is near excellent dining, the capital, the university and the convention center. Rooms are newer, nicely furnished. Was VERY impressed by the number of electrical outlets with USB chargers in the outlets in the room. Have never seen a hotel with such consideration for the number of devices, travelers, especially business travelers need... More

Yes it is clean, yes you get your Hilton Honors program points. However, some changes need to be made concerning staff, organization, a level of professional culture, and attention to detail. Troubles with uncomfortable pillows and a tricky HVAC thermostat made for a restless night.

Like all the other US hote of its category, very standard, with the few following points to mention: - very good location in downtown Columbia (everything at walking distance, unusual in the US), - getting old but rather well maintained, - breakfast better than average, - rooms on the street quite noisy.

We love this hotel! Clean, convenient and affordable. Great service too. The manager stood in a parking space for ten minutes on a cold day so we could move our car. They even have a free happy hour and breakfast. Lots of great restaurants right outside the front door. Rooms are very clean and modern looking. Will stay again!

This was a perfect hotel - very clean, staff was very attentive and helpful, ideal location near everything you would want. I had to park a car, but there was plenty of parking available the days I was there.

Good location but very high per night rate for what you get. For 220. 00 per night you would expect a nicer place. Want stay here again. Had to call front desk at midnight to get them to quiet down teenagers playing in the halls running and screaming.

Nice complimentary breakfast. The room was very clean and quiet. Perfect location. Costs more than I usually pay, but it was a business trip to the convention center which was right next door. Nice soap and shampoo.
