A wonderful lodging in a terrific area if you are vacationing. My girlfriend and I plan to return to this hotel later this year, we enjoyed ourselves so much. What more can I say in forty some words/a few sentences?

The hotel was clean; staff friendly and helpful. We had an early morning issue and the staff was fantastic in their attentiveness to the problem. The rooms were large and clean. We did not utilize the breakfast due to food allergies, but it looked typical of any hotel breakfast. We were on the first floor right outside the pool. The...

This Hampton Inn is way over priced at $200 per night! The room is not worth half that amount. It is time for the Hilton chain to take a hard look at this Hampton Inn property and compare it to the other Hampton Inn's and price it accordingly.

The staff is nice and accommodating. The breakfast was nice and fresh. The breakfast staff were very busy due to a full house that night, but they were always smiling and happy. This trip we stayed at 3 different Hampton Inns they were all very nice.

One of the best Hamptons of all time. Updated guest room finishes in a fantastic location. Staff is very friendly and efficient. Wonderful weekend in Columbia. One of the largest and nicest Suite/Treats Shops I have ever seen in a Hampton. Appears to be new. Definitely recommend this hotel.

Was able to have many selections of the old downtown area, along with the hotel being "up to par". Staff was nice but not over the top. And the hotel was well kept and stocked. I will stay again for sure and make this my stay spot if I bring family this was some day.

This is an excellent hotel that is centrally located in the Vista neighborhood of Columbia. The hotel is within walking distance of downtown Columbia, the Government centers and many bars and restaurants. Highly recommended for a business trip or a quiet relaxing weekend.

I stayed here while attending a conference at the convention center. Everything about my stay was great. However, I wish I had known about the extra taxes that would be added to my bill before I checked out. I can't say that knowing would have changed my choice, but it's better to know about four or five additional taxes before...
