It was clean, the beds were very comfy and the decor was also very nice. It seemed to be updated and NOT beat up... More

My husband and I stayed at this Hampton Inn for 5 nights so we saw a lot of people coming and going. This is a nice, well kept property. The parking is tight because it is near many restaurants in the Vista area of Columbia. During the evening hours it is very hard to find a parking space if you... More

My company had a Christmas party last year at the Convention Center. The location of the Hampton Inn was perfect and within easy walking distance (even in heels) to the Convention Center and to near buy restaurants and bars for the after party. They were doing service on one of the elevators. It was a little slow. The hotel was... More

Hands down, the Hampton is the best in town. Centrally located, sounded by Columbia's historic Vista and just down the street from the Colonial center arena. I'm eating the best breakfast I've ever had at a hotel, Starbucks is across the street and there are a tremendous number of restaurants within a short walk, including the Oyster bar and Uncle...

The occasion was for my son's wedding. Many of the guests and family are from out of town. We always choose a Hampton Inn for traveling. This venue was exceptional. The staff was exceptionally friendly and accommodating. Jasmine was especially bubbly and welcoming. Location was super for exploring downtown Columbia. The rooms were great. The breakfast was hot and delicious.... More

Stayed here for 1 night in July and everything was very solid. The hotel is right in downtown Columbia, centrally located to USC as well as many bars and restaurants. Rooms were clean and updated, exactly what you would expect from a Hampton. If anything, the lobby area was a bit small and crowded, but that is to be expected... More

We found the staff to be extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and average size. They were well stocked with towels and toiletries. Breakfast selection was excellent. It is within walking distance of numerous restaurants. Our only confusion was in not knowing that check-in was at the rear of the building and that it was acceptable to enter... More
