Location was great. Tons of great places to eat just across the street. Front desk staff was super! Very friendly. Gave us dinner recommendations and answered all our general questions with a smile! Would definitely stay here again

We stayed here for a concert and couldn't be more pleased. The front desk ladies personally walked us out to the parking lot to help us find parking during the busy time, they gave us complimentary water at check in and recommended some places to go. The room was clean and everything we needed was in walking distance. I would... More

This hotel is located on Gervais Street - lots of restaurant choices. PLUS a grocery store 2 blocks away, which I frequent when here. It is also a few blocks from USC which means less traffic during the school year.

I was traveling alone and wanted to visit USC. I called 3 hours before I was going to arrive in Columbia. I, actually, called the Hilton. The very sweet local reservation assistant recommended the Hampton Inn. I was very happy she did. The location is exceptional. The welcome staff were very nice and helpful with suggestions about the town. My... More

I'm a Hilton guy so I always try to stay at their properties. Great downtown location. Surrounded by restaurants. Only 5 minutes to USC campus. Negative - charge $12 for parking and at night it's tight. You might end up on the street.

The lady, Okysana, who checked me in was friendly and very helpful. The staff was accommodating. They informed me of local dining choices and hotel amenities. I am quite satisfied with my stay and would stay there again. The room including the beds, pillows, and bedding were nice and comfortable. The towels and linens smelled clean.

This hotel is in a great location. It was in very close proximity of the Colonial Life Arena. Therefore, we walked to the Maroon5 concert which was very convenient. You could also walk to plenty of restaurants & bars w/lots of different options. The hotel was very nice and clean. The pool looked nice but we didn't use it b/c... More

The hotel was very nice and centrally located. Although there was plenty of nightlife very close, the hotel was surprisingly quiet. The only disappointment was that the refrigerator in our room was not very cold. Hampton has updated the decor in many of their hotels including this one. The room and bathroom are very tasteful and pleasing to the eye,... More

Neatly put together. Rooms very specious. Very clean. Nice lobby. Beautiful bathroom. Pleasantly enough towels. Would indeed choose this as a top pick for my next stay. Price was just right, right on budget, right on time.
