Stayed 4 nights for a family wedding. Staff was extremely helpful. Rooms were great, hotel within walking distance of lots of restaurants. Breakfast area and food were above expectations. Parking was at a premium, and is now an added cost to your stay

The beds were low to the ground and the mattresses were completely worn out. I woke up with a throbbing lower back...not typical for me. They comped us one night and flipped the mattress...like that helped. The room smelled of ammonia for some reason....and it was so humid in the rooms. Fine in the halls but the rooms were miserable...others...

Hampton Inn is conveniently located by the state capitol building complex and the University of South Carolina. The breakfast items are very good and the hotel staff is friendly and helpful. The cookies at the front desk are a real plus, too.

“We chose a room on the opposite side from Gervais St. because we thought it might be a little noisy. Our room location was nice and quiet.”
