My husband and I frequently stay at Hampton Inns, and stayed here to attend an event at the convention center, which is literally next door. The hotel is within walking distance of a number of restaurants as well. The hotel met the usual Hampton Inn standard of cleanliness, and although we are not big fans of duvets, we certainly appreciate that the covers are changed for every new guest. I believe that someone complained about the "square pillows," but a good shake is all that is needed to produce a standard pillow. The staff at the reception desk were very friendly and helpful. Because we did not happen to have a 9-year old child with us, we found the TV quite mystifying, but managed to tune in through trial and error. Breakfast included the usual Hampton Inn selections (and excellent coffee) but even at 8:00 AM, the scrambled eggs, ham and biscuits were rather dried out.

Room Tip: If possible, choose a room that does not overlook Gervais street, which is noisy.

Also we are glad that you were able to enjoy the complimentary coffee and breakfast that is served every morning. Again if there are any issues with the food for breakfast, please just talk to one of our wonderful breakfast attendants. They will do whatever it takes to make your breakfast a great experience. Lastly we appreciate you staying with us, and we look forward to seeing you again!

The Staff is excellent, they are very professional, helpful, and friendly. The location of the Hotel is great, in the middle of Downtown Columbia. The breakfast offers good quality food. The only suggestion for the hotel is that it needs to improve the parking situation, parking lot is too small.

During a recent visit to USC, where my daughter had meetings with professors for her upcoming grad program, we needed to stay overnight. We were fortunate to find this property close to campus in the charming Vista area. Our stay was very comfortable, though brief. On site gated parking was a plus. I would recommend this hotel if you need to be near campus - and check out the good restaurants in the Vista.

The service and staff at this hotel are consistently over the top. It is clean, accommodating and a good value. Location is right next to good hotels and it's walking distance to the college and the heart of the town.

Wonderful stay at this Hampton Inn. We were there with a group of friends for the SC Athletic Hall of Fame. The desk personnel were fantastic in helping us coordinate activities, the rooms were excellent and amenities were great. The location couldn't be better if you're attending events at the convention center. Restaurants are very convenient and within easy walking distance.
