We stopped in Columbia on our way home from Florida to visit family. I was quoted a price of $199.00 with free parking. When I checked out they said they would email me my receipt which never came. When I checked my bank account later in the day they charged my card $250.00. The room/ breakfast was nothing special. What... More

I was unable to make it to my destination because of ice and snow. I decided this late Saturday afternoon. I called to cancel my reservations The rep I spoke with said she canceled my reservation and that I wouldn't be charged due to the reason being the weather. But the next day I received an e-mail with the charges.... More

This Hampton Inn is only a few blocks from the SC Capitol. There is a Starbucks across the street and numerous bars and restaurants within steps. You will have plenty of dining options nearby. I have stayed here several times and always found the property clean and the staff helpful and professional.

Very gracious and courteous staff. Clean, accomodating and enjoyable. Very much recommend this as your "first and only" choice when visiting Columbia, SC. In town for family to see USC Gamecocks basketball game. As alumni, we were able to walk to Colonial Life Arena and dine close to the hotel.

great location, safe and private parking, walkable to restaurants and other shops and entertainment. Quiet for a downtown hotel. Nicely decorated. Like the "happy hour" in the afternoon! Friendly staff and rooms have recently been re-done so very clean and new feeling.

rooms are well appointed and clean, however duvets are far too heavy to be utilized in Columbia and our room had only one blanket for two beds. Thus the title of the review, check the closet for blanket or (or in our case)blankets unless you want to call the desk in middle of night.

Staff was friendly and helpful. Room was clean, quiet and comfortable. Would stay there again when in the area. Free breakfast looked good, but did not have time to check it out. Located in the center of Columbia near nice resturants.

Room was small but nice and clean, gym was small but nice and had enough to work with. Parking was great and behind hotel, breakfast was good and served every morning. Great location for a quick walk to restaurants and night life.

I would stay at this hotel again. It is newly refurnished, the beds are great and linen is fresh and clean, as the rest of the room,. Though it is small, so if you have kids it might be tight, but for a professional or visiting parents to USC it's perfect.
