Great people and a great location in lovely small but upscale southern town. Small disappointment was the main lighting in the suite did not work. Reported this as we were checking out and the staff said they knew about it which surprised us. Otherwise, Hartville is a lovely place to visit and the Mantissa is directly in the center of this beautiful jewel of a town. Thanks!! John Gerlaugh

Hello John Gerlaugh, Thank you for sharing your experience in Hartville and at the Mantissa. It sounds like you had a generally positive stay despite the small disappointment with the main lighting in the suite. It's unfortunate that the issue wasn't resolved before your stay, but it's great to hear that you enjoyed the location and found Hartville to be a lovely place to visit. Hopefully, the staff will address the lighting concern promptly for future guests. If you have any other feedback or questions, feel free to share!

Customer service was outstanding. The location of hotel offers lots of choices to eat and drink in walking distance. My family really enjoyed the room and the looks of it. My wife enjoyed the sleep number bed the most of all. We were able to have Continental breakfast also.

This was our 2nd stay and both times were enjoyable. Very clean, lots of space, keyless entry, large shower, soft towels and lovely wood flooring in our King size room. Didn’t get to use the rooftop this time but it’s a must next time. Definitely our spot when staying in Hartsville. ❤️

This amazing boutique hotel is absolutely adorable! The rooms and the lobby were so modern & SPOTLESS CLEAN!!! The shower was large with plenty of hot water, the towels were nice and soft. The 2 separate rooms were perfect - we had 2 rooms, 4 adults and 2 teenage grandchildren, everyone had their own space. The closet was awesome, but the very best thing was how comfortable the bed was! Will stay here again, will not even look to another hotel to compare the price. It was fantastic and met all of our needs.

Stayed with a party of 6, 3 different suites. Everything necessary was provided, very nice that the living area could be closed off from the sleeping area. Beds were very comfortable, everything was very clean. Only stayed overnight but there was lots of shopping in the downtown area and the hotel was convenient to many businesses and restaurants, all within walking distance. Rooftop bar was a nice gathering spot, with a very attentive bartender. Not sure how many guests they had but never heard or saw any. Our room was right on the street, 1st floor, and no street noises. The HVAC system worked very nicely; it happened to be abnormally chilly the last week in May but the heater had our room toasty within an hour of arrival and kept perfect temperature the remainder of our stay. Clean bathrooms--LOVED the sinks--and clean kitchen, along with the supplies needed should one want to eat inside the suites. Very pleasant staff and very pleasant experience. Would definitely recommend the Mantissa. We went for GSSM graduation at Coker College facility. Although the weather wouldn't allow, it was an easy walk to both schools.

We were in Darlington for the NASCAR race and stayed at the Mantissa in Hartsville. It's an awesome hotel located downtown with several fabulous restaurants just a few feet or across the street away. The staff was very friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. Will most definitely be staying here on our next stay in the area.
