I was in town for a business trip. Usually stay at the Hilton which has always been a great experience. Hilton was sold out so I chose Hampton Inn instead figuring that this chain is usually pretty decent. Well let me tell you. I arrived to bedbugs. I didn't notice it at first but I had bites on me the... More

Saltwater pool was excellent. My kid really loved it. Easy access to restaurants. We walked two blocks to Longhorns. The breakfast area was clean. There was a nice variety of items to choose. Maple sausage was a bonus.

This property is right on par for what I have come to expect from Hilton. The staff however puts this property heads above the rest! Friendly and helpful are drastic understatements. The location in historic downtown Columbia is perfect. You are only a short walk to dozens of restaurants, bars, shopping and even a museum or two.

Greeted by a very friendly staff when I entered the door and the hospitality never ended. Room was clean and well appointed. I suggest a room that is not street side for a quite nights sleep, maybe a street facing room at a higher level may be better than the second floor as it was a bit loud at times...No... More

Great Location - Great Staff. Very helpful; we left something in the room and it was brought down to the desk; made for easy retrieval. We were able to get back on the road quickly. Great access to restaurants and campus.

We like Hampton Inns, including this one. They reliably meet our needs. This one had good fruit for breakfast. ThIs was move in weekend at the University of South Carolina, so the house was full of parents and students. It is in the midst of the Vista restaurant and entertainment district.

Overall it was a great stay at a newer hotel. The rooftop lounge was nice with great views of the city, and Felicia in dining services was very kind and helpful. I didn't like that self parking wasn't available.

Clean facility reasonably priced. Close to everything. Staff very friendly. Stay here whenever I am in Columbia. Highly recommend it. You cannot go wrong by staying here. Only complaint I have is that you have to pay for parking,
