Bed was very uncomfortable. Hard as a rock. Although very clean, parts of the room and hotel were worn and not in great shape. Breakfast, again very clean conditions and maintained, was mediocre at best. Minimal compared to some similar hotels. But, it was stocked well and kept full. Hotel was “ ok” and clean, just not the highest I have ever stayed in.

I would like to offer my sincerest apologies for the bed being uncomfortable for you! We care about our guests here at Hampton Inn, and we hate it when there is a problem with one of our guests. I will do everything in my power to ensure it does not happen again. Additionally, I hope you were satisfied with how the hotel employees handled your problem. I hope that you will visit us again the next time you visit Columbia!

My only issue was the location of the room. It faced an area of the city where a new hotel was being constructed so there was noise very early in the morning right outside of my window. If the hotel property was not fully booked, they should pay attention to NOT put people on that side of the hotel. If I was across the hall, I'm sure it would have been fine. I was only there 2 nights or I would have asked to be moved.

Front desk staff were very nice and all had a smile on their faces when we saw them. They have a nice snack and beverage area too. The place is in a great location and they have their own parking area.

Love it every time

Pros: Everything
Cons: Double check the power outlets to make sure they work.
Location: It has the perfect location but for the price I am not thrilled with the parking fee.
Every time I've stayed here I've loved it! This last time a few of the power outlets didn't work but this wouldn't be a deal breaker for me. Every other time has been perfect! And they serve a great breakfast :)

Great downtown location!

Pros: The location to many local eateries was a definite plus.
Cons: Down pillows were nice but not to our liking.
Location: There are many bars, restaurants, and desert eateries within walking distance.
This hotel was recently renovated and all of the needed amenities are up to date and current with the times. The front desk clerk was very accommodating when we arrived way too early and wanted to check in. After 10 minutes, she found us a lovely room.

The hotel made us feel welcome. They were very helpful.

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet
I really like Hampton Inns for the price, cleanliness, great breakfasts. I have found them to be the best deal for the money. I always look for one in the area in which I am traveling unless looking for a resort experience.

The staff is always welcoming and attentive when I stay there.

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet
I travel to South Carolina at least once a month and I have always stayed at the Hampton Inn. The one time I did stay at another hotel closer to where I needed to be I regretted it the entire time. I will now only stay at the Hampton Inn when I am in Columbia.
