“The Best if the Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2011 via mobile

I stay at many hotels throughout the year. This is the BEST Hampton Inn I have ever stayed at and when anywhere near Columbia this IS the hotel of choice. I choose to drive an extra 30 - 45 mins. from surrounding cities to stay at this Hampton Inn due to it's Friendly Staff, clean and neat rooms and great value. This is a must stay if staying anywhere near Columbia. The entire staff will make you feel warm and welcome.

I check into this place after having left the Holiday Inn Express in protest, where the rude staff and the sloppy service was presented in the body of a brand new ritzy hotel. In comparsion , this Hampton Inn is a quaint little place, but with the most fantastically helpful, professional and friendly staff I have seen anywhere in the world of hotels that I stay at for my business.

The rooms are small, but beautiful and clean. Beds are immaculate and wonderfully comfortable, the bathrooms well appointed, and the hotel sport sa clean and cute swimming pool. The shuttle service is likewise fast, available and business friendly. The internet is excellent and reliable. They offer working printer and computer in their business niche, only feet away from where they have the fresh cookies and fruits out for guest to help themselves with at all times.

The staff is so professional and friendly that I had to compliment the management personally so that they value this item that is so often and so sadly missing from even some of the best and most expensive hotels: civil, mature, friendly and knowledgeable staff, instead of jut the pea-brained, rude "pretty legs" they appoint upfront as poor excuse for professional staff

Their coffee/tea bar is an absolute delight: great selection of regular and flavored coffees, a most impressive selection of teas and of course, the sweets.

I cannot more strongly recommend this place to anyone visiting Columbia, SC. The amenities, the friendliness, the comfort and the peace in this place is just wonderful. I left so rested and so happy.

Room Tip: Fantastic: friendly, clean, well equipped and restful place.

This was a very good Hampton Inn. You come to expect that all Hampton Inns are clean and have decent service. This one was no exception. I stayed here along with my family and many other people who were attending my wedding that weekend. The sales manager was very helpful and assisted me with getting a block of rooms for everyone.

The room itself was very impressive and really nice. The staff was very friendly and tended to any need that we had. The location is convenient , very close to the interstate on the outskirts of Columbia. The value was great with the breakfast in the morning.

BOTTOM LINE: Great Hampton Inn! I would recommend this property and would definitely stay here again. My expectations that i had of a Hampton Inn were certainly exceeded on this stay.

We were attending a function at The Wildwood Country Club and the hotel was one that they recommended in addition to positive reviews. Another guest mentioned the less than attractive neighborhood behind the hotel, it was quieter than the interstate. The hotel was very clean and comfortable. On Saturday morning, the breakfast staff pulled everything around 9:45. The hot items were almost gone by 9:30. Sunday morning, the regular staff put out the breakfast you would expect and didn't clear things until 10:15. Overall, we would stay here again.

Finally, a hotel in Columbia worth staying at! My family, from 3 parts of the US, rendezvoused here for a funeral. We did not need a crummy hotel to add to our stress. The accommodations were perfect: helpful/professional/kind staff, accommodating dining/sitting area for family meetings, plenty of accessible snacks, a business center with internet and copier, spotless bathrooms/fridges/microwaves, comfortable beds, no noisy patrons, and an excellent deluxe hot breakfast. Don't bother trying any other hotel in this area!

Room Tip: The interstate and city in front of the hotel is more attractive than the backyards of the neighbors...

This hotel was GREAT! We stayed here on the way to Myrtle Beach and it was just a delight. Everything was super clean and a wonderful staff. It was after hours and we asked the lady at the desk if they had any milk in their "suite store" for our 22 month old daughter. They didn't technically but the lady said to bring her sippy cup down and they would fill it up for her from the kitchen at no charge. I thought that was so sweet of her to do. It was definitely above and beyond in my opinion. We would definitely stay here again in a heartbeat!
