Stayed here on business. This hotel is right in front of the convention center. Right from the start, the staff was very friendly! Check in was a breeze and the room was wonderful. Very spacious and clean with upgraded amenitites. Their breakfast is probably the best I've ever had at any Hampton Inn. On our last day, we left really early and the staff had to-go breakfast bags waiting for us in the lobby. This hotel is in the heart of the Vista with great restuarants and shops close by.

I would have given this a 5 star but to pay for parking is CRAZY, especially when you are paying 229.00 for a room that you are in for less then 24 hours. I did complain at check in and instead of comping the parking. I was told to read the fine print. Parking was close to 13 dollars, again for less than 24 hours. It wasn't busy or crowded the Thursday night we were there. Room was clean and well decorated. A small issue with our refrigerator was fixed promptly.

We look for Hampton Inn & Suites whenever possible and this was no exception. We were looking for somewhere quick and easy to stay when trying to avoid Tropical Storm Bonnie. We were able to get a room quickly and easily and did automatic check in. We found the inn quickly and easily and were surprised to see a gate at the parking lot for it, but went in and parked fairly easily. The room was nice and clean. Staff was friendly.

Rates were raised for this week, so very high. Breakfast eggs and fruit were terrible. Not enough carts at check out, had none when we checked out. Wine is sold by the bottle, but no wine glasses available. Only paper coffee cups. No outlets available in the pool area (problem if you want to charge anything) Staff was very friendly and the rooms were very comfortable. Location is excellent.

I love the Hampton brand and stay here when I can. This is a beautiful little hotel in Columbia, SC. I booked it because of the location. The rooms were large and clean and the beds were fantastic. The staff was very friendly. The only criticism I would have is that on the Gervais St., the door to the lobby is a tiny door with a sign that tells you to park around back. So when you go around back, the lot has signs that tell you you'll be towed without a permit. It wasn't clear if I needed... Read more

We booked a room here primarily because it was one of the recommendations of the hosts of the wedding we were attending. We always enjoy our stays at Hampton Inns, but this one was particularly memorable for one reason: Jasmine!

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.

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 from a downtown hotel - if coming to Columbia, this is a place I would absolutely stay again.

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 Louies just down the street. You really can't wrong here.

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, but in going for minimalism, they seem to have left out places to hang your towels.
