If you're looking for a clean, friendly, affordable hotel to stay in the Columbia area, look no further. I've stayed at some very nice hotels (Hilton, Hyatt, Marriott) with all the amenities in my travels but this one is by far the best for customer service I've experienced...EVER. Hotel is fairly new and is kept spotless. The staff is very friendly and more than accommodating. If there was a rating above Excellent, this Hampton Inn would get it.
