Hotel is great! Rooms are nice, clean and toiletries are some of the best. Breakfast is also very good, with enough choices and seating. The breakfast attendant is cheerful and helpful. Parking, on the other hand, is inadequate. On both nights of our stay, we returned late from our conference at another hotel. We had to go to the desk and ask them where we could park, as the lot was completely full, with much double parking. The first night, I was asked to double park. The second night, I was finally, after about thirty minutes, told to park in a handicapped spot. There were two other vehicles also awaiting parking instructions. The arm for the parking lot worked improperly, so I think that anyone going to many of the bars in the Vista were probably parking there.

Dear Gail N.,

On behalf of the staff and management team, I want to personally thank you for choosing our hotel for your recent accommodation needs. We really appreciate you taking the time to write a review for our property on TripAdvisor. I am sorry to hear about your recent experience with our parking lot, that kind of situation is not typical of our Hampton. We have made arrangements with the local business' around our property for overflow parking to prevent this situation from happening again and have since fixed our parking gate so that it operates properly. Thank you again for staying with us and we hope to see you again soon!

We came to Columbia to go to a play at the Kroger center & we could park our car & walk everywhere. We had dinner in an excellent Italian restaurant right across the street. The gentleman who checked us in couldn't have been more helpful!

Location is downtown right near USC campus. A lot of bars and restaurants near by. Very close to one of the main roads. As a result we heard a lot of street noise in our room on the 2nd level (people talking, loud car stereos, etc.). Our room did not have a refrigerator in it. Also there is a 12 dollar parking charge and access to the parking lot is confusing given the street the hotel is on (check out Google Maps). I probably would have stayed @Harbison road but the organization I was with booked here.

This hotel was perfectly located beside our even venue at Columbia Convention Center. We were able to leave our car at the hotel and walk to our venue as well as the nearby restaurants. I needed to go to CVS and found that it was only a few blocks away within walking distance also! Love the location! I would definitely book at this hotel again!
