I stayed here in early August 2012 for a quick business trip. It was clean, affordable and very well situated - in the Vista, walking distance to lots of great restaurants and across the street from Starbucks. Easy, free parking too. Room was immaculate and breakfast was decent. Would definitely stay again.

I was in Columbia for 4 days by myself on business. This hotel was perfect. It's in a great location: several restaurants in walking distance. Since I was by myself, and I didn't feel like going out to dinner alone, I ordered takeout from the restaurant next door (Liberty Tap Room) every night. Food was very good. The hotel is... More

I can't believe that I didn't have time to write this review earlier. I was in Columbia to visit USC with my daughter. The hotel was very nice, clean and in a great location.

Hotel is clean and managed well. We were in town for USC visit and staff was very accommodating with late check out request. Even put a 'do not disturb' tag on our door for maid. Breakfast very good. Many places within walking distance to eat. Very quiet hotel, slept well.:)

We stayed at the Hampton to attend a wedding downtown. Check in was easy, and the lobby had cookies on the counter as well as coffee and tea.

I was planning a fun night out with friends in the Vista, and although we live in Columbia, we live on the other side of town and wanted a place to stay in walking distance of all the places we wanted to go.

The State house is very close-I was unable to go to the tour because of time, but looks like it is worth going. USC is very close, it was raining or I would have run there. My room was clean....
