My wife and I stayed for just a single night at this hotel in mid-May 2017, but the trip was excellent. The service that the front desk provided was outstanding. We had forgotten a few things and they helped us out with all of them. They answered any questions that we had, gave us some dining recommendations, and were extremely...

In the past 13 months, I've stayed at this property four times, and I have three more stays already booked. The location couldn't be better - tons of restaurants nearby, and it's right off the University of South Carolina. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Standard Hampton Inn breakfast. Cookies in the afternoon at the front desk. Outdoor pool looks lovely...

Great location and overall nice Hampton Inn property. Shower stall in my guest room had mold on ceramic tile which was disturbing. On the upside, I left an item behind in the meeting room and a staff member retrieved it and shipped it back to me.
