I discovered this hotel last year as they offered special rates for the Nashicon anime convention and was pleasantly surprised. So, knowing that, I booked a stay at the Hampton Inn for this year's Nashicon as well. We were given room 414, a room with two queen beds that was impressively large for a "standard" room. Since my stay last... More

Great location, great internet service and unexpected free beer and pizza from Liberty Tap Room served at 6pm. The staff was friendly and the hotel was clean. There are plenty of great restaurants within walking distance.

Our accommodations were adequate and a typical Hampton Inn room. The location was good for the university and downtown area. The manager's reception in the evening gives it an extra star for the drinks and fresh salsa with chips. The rate was very high due to the Masters Golf Tournament in Augusta that week (making it $259 / nt), but... More

Room was as promised except for a microwave that was mentioned on the corporate site. Dwight allowed me and my 2 year old who was worn out from a day at the zoo, to check in a little early. Due to a slight misunderstanding, we thought there was an indoor pool, only to discover it was outdoors and very chilly.... More

Stayed here recently for a nearby office event. The location was perfect for a meet up after our event as it is close to the local night life. Room was clean; quiet and offered a free breakfast. Front desk was helpful and friendly. Will be back.

We used this hotel as a base of operations for driving to Augusta for The Masters. It's a little over an hour away. No issues with traffic during our drive times. The location of this hotel is great, right in the middle of many good restaurants (and many with awesome craft beer selections!). Breakfast was typical of this tier. Nothing... More

Great place for USC games or the Masters. Conviently close to resturants and local nightlife. The free wifi and breakfast is a plus. Rooms are nice, up to date, and clean. Only draw back is the price. Although, we stayed there during the masters. I am sure they raise prices for special events everywhere.

I generally prefer staying in Hampton Inns and had hoped this one would meet my expectations. I was traveling for a work conference and was sadly disappointed to find out I could hear every word of every drunk person partying on the street for two of the three nights I stayed there. Lots of people, motorcycles and loud cars made... More

First the good...this is a nice hotel in a great location. My daughter had a event taking place at the convention center and this hotel is about a 5 minute walk. You have to pay $12 for parking but I didn't think it was a big deal. The rooms were clean, at least we thought. My two year old has... More

We stayed here while in town on a number of business related activities. The hotel is close to many restaurants, the convention center and USC. Very clean, quiet, good breakfast with lots of choices. Attendants very friendly and always replenishing items. Breakfast area is nice too, more homey and less cafeteria like. Interesting that it's smoke free yet we observed... More
