Great service and very clean, modern hotel. I was impressed with the breakfast and the size of the rooms. You will not be disappointed. I was also pleasantly surprised with the fitness room. Also, the hotel was competitively priced.

Stayed here overnight on a trip North. Location was great as was the quality of the room and breakfast for the price that we paid. Front desk staffer Jason was very cheerful during our late night check-in and a welcome to weary travelers.

Hello WilliamD,

We thank you for choosing to stay at our property & for taking the time to fill out a trip advisor review. We greatly appreciate all the good words! Jason, one of our front desk night auditors, has just recently received Employee of the Quarter & our outstanding "FISH" award, which are both an outcome of his friendly & fun personality and service style. Just by you recognizing him and his service he will receive an additional "pickle" award. We hope you will have a chance to return to the property again soon.

With gratitude,

Mellisa Ayer

We used this for an overnight stop over and it was everything we could have hoped for. Pool was nice as was the room, however as a light sleep I was disturbed time and time again by people going to their cars in the earlier hours. Breakfast was ok at best.

Dear Andy_DE21,

We greatly appreciate you choosing to stay with our hotel while visiting Columbia, SC. Overall I do hope our service shined enough to have you return on your next visit.

I am not sure as to where your room was located, if on the first floor parking lot side, however we do regret hearing about your challenges after check out. Upon a future return be sure to ask for a lake side, high floor. These are our most quiet rooms and I am sure will help you achieve a restful nights sleep. If you typically stay Hampton keep your eyes out for changes, we are always finding fun innovative ways to add flare. Just this year our property specifically has added 3 types of yogurt, to included Yoplat Vanilla Greek yogurt.

Safe travels,

Mellisa Ayer
Director of Sales

We often stop in Columbia, SC, as it's a good middle-spot between our home and Atlantic beach towns, such as Hilton Head Island. We have food friends in the Columbia area, so we're always on the look-out for hotels -- especially Hilton/Hamptons since we're Hilton Honors members -- in the Harbison Blvd. area. This one turned out to be an exceptional find!

First, we arrived to be greeted as Hilton Honors members and were informed that we were the "Hilton Honors Customers of the Day." Doesn't sound like much, but we were upgraded from a two-queen room valued at $130/night to a one-bedroom suite overlooking the lake (along with kitchenette, bay window, huge shower with double shower head and amazing, large two-person jetted tub) worth about $250.00 / night at our original booking price. Staff was incredibly welcoming and even gave us a bag of snacks and goodies that my kids enjoyed all the way to Florida!

The fabulous room was only part of the great deal we had here. In addition, the pool was the warmest we encountered on our 12-day trip, which is hard to believe since we spent time in Columbia, Orlando, Ft. Lauderdale, and even Miami! Additionally, the outdoor areas are incredible here and are like what you'd expect at a Hilton Hotel. There is a huge outdoor living area with fireplace, large built-in grill, overhead canopy, wicker tables, chairs, lounges, and so forth. It is also on Lake Harbison with a wonderful walk-around trail, and the hotel has two adult and one child-sized bike available for a ride around the lake. Ducks are everywhere!

On our return trip from South Florida, we stayed again. This time, we had a king-sized bed and queen sized pull-out sleep sofa along with microwave and mini-fridge. This was great for a family of four.

Breakfast was, as always, included in the price, and while we ordered out for pizza late upon arrival, there is a mall as well as a multitude of restaurants in very close proximity (such as Applebee's, for example).

Our ONLY complaint -- if even you can call it that -- is that the free Internet is a little bit spotty through the hotel. However, the good news is that they also offer you a free wireless connection to ATTWireless, which is much more reliable than their Hilton connection. Thanks to this, we had no problem whatsoever, staying online.

While this Hampton is a bit more expensive than many Hamptons, it's much more like a Doubletree in that the staff, outdoor areas, and interior accommodations are VERY upscale. We highly recommend this property to you. We will certainly return!

Dear LoveBeagle,

We appreciate your kind words and most exceptional review. It is always delightful when our guest have a chance to enjoy the property in full. We would like to think your review is a perfect snap shot of our hotel, service and accommodations. I have already shared your post with our department heads and staff.

So glad your family were able to experience one of our suites as guest of the day-it is always a sweet unexpected delight when we have the opportunity to surprise our guest. As for the internet, I know exactly what happened. As you mentioned, there was Hilton Honors and AT&T Wireless-we switched this year and we are waiting patiently for the splash page to disappear.

We invite your family to keep our hotel as an annual trip on the way to vacation and look forward to seeing you again next summer!!

Safe travels,

Mellisa Ayer

Our family stopped at the Hampton Inn, Lake Harbison, on our way to Orlando from Pennsylvania. After many hours on the road, we were extremely happy to hike or bicycle (the hotel has a handful of bikes available for its guests to borrow) around the lake. My photos do not do the lake justice; it is a lovely spot, with small docks protruding into the water, the trail circling, and a playground on the opposite shore from the hotel. The room was neat and clean, as we expect from Hamptons; the staff was friendly; the breakfast enjoyable. Overall, a great stay, and we would certainly visit here again.

We were only there for one night. Room was nice, clean, and cozy. Fitness center has state of the art equipment. Only bad thing was there was no free weights. Breakfast was really good. They had both hot and cold choices. Overall I would stay there again.

Dear Syntow,

Thank you for your simple but well put review regarding your stay at our property. We are delighted your top 3 words to describe your overall experience was Nice. Clean. & Cozy... all wonderful descriptions of our hotel and staff! Our Fitness Center was newly renovated (phase 2 of a 3 phase project) and I am sorry to hear you missed out on working with free weights. If we have the opportunity to host you again be sure to ask the front desk agents about our two offsite fitness facilities-one within walking distance- totally complimentary to our guests. Being fit is important to us and Hampton and I am thankful to hear you charged up on your Rest, Fitness and Breakfast! Hope you enjoyed your visit to Columbia, SC and we look forward to hearing from you again soon!
