Hampton Inn Columbia-I-26 Harbison Boulevard
Ranked #2 of 93 Hotels in Columbia
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 August 2014

Looking for a place that includes my beloved dog is no easy task! We came to visit family in Columbia, and this place is very, very nice! The front staff is more than pleasant, and the warm macadamian cookies are excellent! You may think a place that accepts dogs will not be clean, but that is not the case! I'm pretty hard on a hotel's cleanliness (check my other reviews), but I was very pleased (it wouldn't hurt for housekeeping to knock the dust off the pipes behind the toilet occasionally, but still). Despite having a room that overlooked the parking lot, the room was very quiet. We ordered takeout and could eat together as a family in the breakfast area. The breakfast was nice! good selection (the eggs weren't my favorite, but lots of other choices). The lake outback was fantastic--take the time to walk completely around! But if friendly ducks and geese freak you out, be warned. But they are friendly! There's lots of turtles in the lake, too. My son loved the pool area, and we enjoyed the covered porch area too. I don't know if it's the dogs that make everyone friendly, but this was a very nice place!

We always stay at the Hampton Harbison now when going through Columbia. After 8 hours in the car, you have your choice of relaxing by a very attractive outdoor pool, or getting some much-needed exercise walking the shady paths that wind around the adjacent lake and residential neighborhood. That is what keeps us coming back. Definitely a unique location and setting. There is a mall and plenty of chain restaurants just a minute away.

We have travelled numerous times with our two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels and this is by far the best hotel we have ever stayed in. The staff was very helpful and friendly and our pets were treated better than most hotels treat humans. We will definitely stay here the next time we come to South Carolina.

We travel with our 2 dogs through South Carolina many times and need to find a pet friendly hotel.
We hit the jackpot with this one! It is located just off I-26 exit 103 Harbison Blvd. It is located on a beautiful lake with a well lit walking path all around the lake. When we checked it the staff was so friendly and greeted our dogs. Everyone who worked there seemed to be true dog lovers. The front desk person was even babysitting a very large friendly dog while her owners went to dinner!
You fill out a card describing your dog just in case it gets loose so they will know who owns it. They do NOT charge anything extra for having dogs too! The hotel was just remodeled in March or May and everything is so clean and bright. There is no dog smell either. Our room was nicely furnished with a very comfortable king bed,a couch and footrest, a desk, refrigerator and microwave. There was nice carpeting throughout and a large flat screen t.v. with all the channels available including HBO. There is free WiFi throughout the hotel. Their rates were very resonable. Our room was $112.00 per night. They also have Hitlon Honors.
When it came time to walk our dogs, there was a beautiful, well lit walking path that went all around the lake. The dogs loved all the smells. There is also a nice bar-b-que and outdoor seating next to the pool and an exercise room. A large shopping center is just across the highway with many restaurants available. The hotel offers a complementary hot breakfast served every morning along with a free U.S.A. Today newspaper. We were so impressed with this place that we will stay here every time we pass through. Even though many dogs were staying here, it was a very quiet hotel too!

Room Tip: All the rooms were very nice. We were on the 3rd floor overlooking the parking lot but the room had...
