I have stayed at this property many times because of its great location near campus, and I've never had any issues. This trip was different. I was out with family members early in the evening, and when I got back to my room around 8, I discovered that my tv didn't work. I called the front desk, and after trying twice, staff finally picked up on the third call. The hotel was not busy, so I can't imagine that the phones were ringing off the hook down there. She sent a maintenance person up to my room (by this time it is 8:20pm), but he couldn't fix it, so he left, saying he was going to get me a new tv. Then crickets. I waited for 45 minutes, and by that time, I didn't want anyone back in my room. I called the front desk to cancel the service request, and she said, yes, she had tried to call me to say that the maintenance staff didn't have the tools to unbolt the tv, so did I want another room. She didn't try to call me. I was sitting there the whole time. My room phone didn't ring. My cell phone didn't ring. I heard nothing. If you don't have the tools, the skills, or whatever, to fix something, then just be honest and say so right away. Don't leave a paying guest hanging for almost an hour, and certainly don't LIE about your behavior. I've always enjoyed staying here, but when I stayed at Hilton Garden a few blocks up the street several weeks ago, the service was stellar. I'm not sure I'll go back to Hampton Inn.

Hotel's Favourite
The room was lovely, clean and comfortable. The front desk staff and all staff I encountered were polite and professional. Finally the breakfast was delightful, warm western omelettes, waffle station, sausage, oatmeal and crispy potatoes, I couldnt have asked for a nicer way to start the day. Will definitely be returning

I was very pleasantly surprised by this Hampton Inn. Hampton Inn is always consistent, but this stay exceeded my expectations. We were greeted promptly by a very friendly staff. Then, a few hours after arriving I received a text asking how our room was and if we needed anything. I requested a few more pillows, which were brought to our room within minutes. The shower had great water pressure, and there were plenty of towels. I also had a chance to layout by the pool, and was happy to find beach towels provided. At breakfast, everything was available, and well attended by two staff members. The hotel is in a great location, in the center of Downtown Columbia, walking distance to many shops and restaurants. I would definitely stay here again.

One night on the street side which was noisy. Very conveniently located hotel and very clean. Parking was hard to locate, and even then, not sure which was the main parking lot. Check-in was slower than it needed to be, and the desk was almost annoyed at my questions. The food was fairly good in the am.

The first challenge here was access. The hotel fronts on Gervais Street, but you have to access the parking lot from Lincoln Street. They have gated parking, but you can press a button to be buzzed in when you first arrive. After that, your room key can be used to access the lot. The sign said that guest parking was $14 per day. Check in was fairly quick. We got a room on the 4th floor (of 5). They had multiple luggage carts of at least 2 different types (I saw at least 4 total), which I pay somewhat more attention to now after staying in a larger place that only had 1... The hotel seemed quiet. Rooms toward the back would probably help in this regard. The location is on a main street in town, about 2 - 3 blocks from the state capitol building complex. It is a short walk (5 minutes or less) to a large number of restaurants or bars in the area. If you are here on a weekend, the Soda City Market is located on (mostly closed for just pedestiran use) Main Street starting about 5 blocks away. Breakfast was included with the stay. It started at 6 a.m. on the Saturday we were there for it. I'd say it was about average for what hotels are providing now, post-Covid. I had enough to eat, anyway. Our room was fine; we only had one bath towel for some reason, but we didn't notice until it wasn't convenient to request a 2nd one. The bed was comfortable. I've stayed in 3 different hotels now in / near Columbia. For staying in the walkable radius of downtown, this is a good option.

The hotel was located on a great location, walking distance to all kinds of restaurants bars and shops. We were there for only one night but really got to enjoy the city. The hotel was clean and the staff was very friendly. We had no issues.

I really love the beds. They are clean and comfortable. You will sink right in. If you like soft pillows they have them. I just prefer my medium firm pillow from home. I like that I could adjust the temperature in my room. One down side was that the TV remote didn't work for changing channels.

This Hampton is in a great location to walk to restaurants and events near downtown. The facility was good, but the staff at this Hampton and the location really made this a good stay. If I need to come back to the area, I won't hesitate to stay again.

We have stayed here numerous times during our daughters college experience-- This time we stayed 3 nights with 2 rooms at $4000 for graduation and the rooms were very dirty- used towels left in bathroom- mirrors streaked, dust everywhere , trash overflowing in all our cans. I called down to front desk to ask for more toilet paper, towels and cups and 3 hours later no response--- Told we had to come get them ourselves. Elevator would not come to 3rd floor- we had to take steps multiple times! Free breakfast closed every time we went to eat. Really a disappointment for an exciting family trip for graduation.
