After traveling several hours from south Florida my wife and I decided to stop in Columbia for the night. We looked ahead and found this Hampton Inn. It wasn't but just two days ago that I made a comment to my wife that I have never been disappointed in a Hampton Inn.
When we arrived we were greeted by a woman who was very nice, could not have asked for a better greeting. After getting our keys we began to walk down the hallway to the elevator and couldn't help but notice that the carpet in the hallways seemed as if they haven't been vacuumed in several days. There was dirt along the ceilings and about 60% of all the doors in the hallway were filthy.
When we arrived at our room there was a lamp shade that was desperately in need of being replaced, spots all over the end tables, hair in the bathtub, the tile leading into the room hadn't been swept. We thought about just staying and dealing with it for one night but after only five minutes decided that we were not going to spend the night and we went down to check out. I have never called customer service before on a hotel and haven't even thought of doing so with any Hilton hotel we have ever stayed in, needless to say I did just that. We checked into another Hampton just north of our previous location and couldn't be more pleased with not only the location compared to W. Columbia, but the hotel in general.
Again I appreciate the courtesy of the staff, but really would recommend working on the sterility, tidiness, and cleanness of this hotel.
