I was concerned when I read some of the reviews regarding the homeless population at the Denny's Diner next door. We parked in the back and yes they are there, openly smoking marijuana and cruising the lots on bicycles. And yes they made me uncomfortable but I was not panhandled or approached and I was already aware that SC has a large homeless population. But unless you are hanging out in the parking lot I don't see an issue.Our vehicles weren't tampered with and I felt "safe." The Inn is typical Hampton, although it's the smallest Hampton I have ever stayed at. The staff is professional. Especially the two J's..Jason and Jonathon? Apologies if I have the names incorrect you both are an asset to the hotel. BOTH super helpful with directions, even walking me out to the front to show me directions and offering very valuable advice on traveling, providing me with maps which they highlighted to ensure I would find my way. And let me check in early after a LONG drive! Rooms and breakfast same as always, this "chain" is consistent with sevice, comfort and cleanliness. This will be "my" hotel in SC until my son graduates.
