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! Lots of places to eat and... More

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.

This is one of the nicest Hampton Inns I have been to. The hotel appears newly renovated, and is very clean. The staff was friendly and professional. It was close to numerous restaurants and there was plenty of nightlife close to the hotel. For anybody looking for a nice, reasonably priced place to stay in Downtown Columbia, I recommend this...

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
