Trial and error has taught me that Hampton Inns are always dependably nice. This particular one is exceptionally lovely due in large part to the staff. Their friendliness, helpfulness and attention to detail made me feel like a VIP! You can't beat the location if you are visiting the university, have business in the city, or dining out. When I come to Columbia, this hotel will be the ONLY place for me!

Fabulous staff, clean accommodations, comfortable environment, centrally located to all of downtown Columbia. If there's a better value in Columbia I dare you locate it. As a huge fan of Hampton Inn everywhere, I rate this particular hotel among the top facilities in the USA. Only wish my travel plans could have allowed me a longer stay, however, I'll be back in a month and will certainly treat myself and family to the privilege of Hampton Inn, Columbia at that time. I am considering selling my home and moving into this hotel ( I jest ). There are not sufficient accolades to cover my experience .

One of the best Hamptons I have stayed in, and I stay in at least 40 per year. Staff was great, hotel was clean and the local restaurants are within short walking distance.

Working in Columbia with a film crew of 9 this Hampton Inn provided everything we needed.
Great rooms, breakfast and many restaurants within walking distance to choose from. The staff was the most helpful of any I've encountered. We spent 4 nights there then drove to Charleston. Rather than spending 2 nights in Charleston, the crew voted to drive back to Columbia HI and end our road trip on a high note.

It was a great pleasure accommodating you and your crew!

The location of this facility is fabulous. Right in the heart of great restaurants and night life which was perfect after we moved our daughter in to her new apartment for her upcoming senior year at U of South Carolina. An abosolutely great experience and booked a room for an upcoming football weekend.

Dear IKE48,

Location, Location, Location! We do take pride in our "location" and it's always good to know that it was most convenient for you. I'm sure after a long day of moving your daughter into her apartment, the last thing you want to do is TRAVEL to a restaurant.
Thank you for your loyalty to our hotel, and we look forward to accommodating you throughout the year for future USC football games and other special events!
