We stayed there for a weekend. The hotel was very clean and the hotel stall was phenomenal except one older female staff working the nigh shift front desk. The check out time is 12 which gave us enough time to sleep and have breakfast. Breakfast was decent except the egg whites they provided, and the milk was not restocked for cereal. They do have a waffle maker!!! The location of this hotel is great, doesn't have the best view but it's close to a lot of restaurants near by which is great. There is a $50 deposit at check in which you get back at some point after your stay. Hotel was clean and decent prices! Most definitely staying there again.

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.
