To be ranked as the 3rd best hotel in Columbia was surprising once I stayed here....but it is Columbia, the full-service properties here are in various stages of disrepair and this place is "pet friendly" so I guess they've cornered the market. You get the standard Hampton offering here which is a pretty clean hotel, great bed, nice pool, decent fitness room, and the free breakfast which is your microwaved/steamed eggs or "omelets", Canadian bacon or sausage, potatoes, yogurt, and pastries. Not something you would want to eat more than 1 or 2 days but it gets you through to lunch. This hotel had a really nice outside sitting area as well with a gas grill. A really pleasant place to hang out in either the AM or PM. It appears they have updated the lobby area and the guest room corridors with a modern look but it didn't really match the old formal casegoods in the rooms. That is my one desire for any Hampton...that it will be more "Hilton Garden Inn" like with their more modern look and great desks/chairs....they can keep that Sleep Number bed, however. The Hampton bed is much more comfortable!
