Enjoy the great outdoors close to the Hampton Inn on the Lake at Harbison hotel in Columbia, SC. Our award winning property, ranked #1 in the state, just completed a full property renovation summer 2017. Request a free bicycle and helmet, and ride the paved trail along Lake Harbison adjacent to our hotel. Our pet loving families enjoy the short walk around the lake. We offer comfy and convenient accommodation for guests attending a conference at the Columbia Conference Center only 2 miles away. Walk to Columbiana Center Mall, Columbia's largest shopping district, and dine in one of our many restaurant options. Admire nature at Harbison State Forest, or take the family to Frankie’s Fun Park, just a mile away. Still need more? We're just minutes from the Historic Columbia Downtown District home of the USC Carolina Gamecocks, multiple state museums, sail on Lake Murray or take short drive to Historic Newberry.

I enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The room was nice, clean and the staff was very friendly. I also enjoyed breakfast! I stayed at the hotel for two days. It's easy to access right off the highway and close to the mall.

My wife and I stayed here 11/30/18. Our room was much larger than a lot of the newer Hamptons we've been staying in - - the easy chair and ottoman was nice for my wife who has been having a lot of knee pain. The hotel is nicely decorated and clean. The staff is very helpful

Good morning, Relax21143257119, Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback from your recent stay with us. We pride ourselves on our property, the cleanliness of it, as well as the level of service we provide. I would like to start off by saying I am truly sorry that your experience at our hotel was not exceptional. I hate to hear your check in did not go as you thought it should. Due to our guests' privacy we typically do not state in the lobby what rate you are being charged due to it being a public area. It is upsetting to hear that your keys kept de-magnetizing as that is an issue we hardly run into due to using RFID keys, so thank you for letting us know! As for the initial authorization on your card I would like to say I am sorry for the miscommunication. As a hotel we authorize a little more than just the room and tax on your card to make sure we have a card on file that will authorize in case you charge anything from the treat shop to your room or if any damage is done to the room. However, it is just an authorization and upon checkout the remainder of the authorization is returned to your card. I apologize for the authorization of $184.40 as that was a glitch in the system during night audit. I have spoken with Ben and the reason to why he said he would not be able to do anything for you that day is because banks are closed on Sunday - however he did call our merchant and get the authorization reversed on our end and as quickly as we could. I hate to hear that he was not thorough with you and that his service was lacking - Ben usually gets positive comments about his customer service, so I'm surprised and disappointed to hear you received anything less than that. Saudia is the young lady you spoke with so I am happy to hear you enjoyed her as she is a great asset to our team. I believe you have spoken with another member of our management staff this morning and that he is helping you get your authorizations released into your account faster than the typical 5-7 business days. Thank you again for your time and feedback, and again apologize!

We traveled to Columbia with our high school wrestling team and spent 1 night here. Very clean and friendly. They were very accommodating for 12 rooms, room was a nice size and so was the bathroom. Breakfast was available, easy parking and close to interstate.

I would say 6 - 8 miles. Not that far and an easy drive on I-26 and plus I believe a nicer and safer area than closer the River Banks Zoo. Lots of restaurant and shopping on Harbison Blvd and I grew up I the area.

Thank you for helping with great answers! We are on the Northwest side of Columbia, the fort is on the Southeast side. Not a terrible drive if you're not traveling typical rush hour times. Our pet policy is very welcoming, but we do ask for only 2 pets per room, no restrictions on breeds or weight. When you check in we do ask for you to register your animals and provide us with cell phone numbers. We cannot allow dogs to excessively bark as it disturbs other guest around the room, but we will try out hardest to help assist you with any challenges!

Not too far from Fort Jackson but Fort Jackson is huge. There are no restrictions at the hotel. All rooms are pet rooms except I believe the top floor.

"Hotel is pet friendly - - I understand they are not allowed on the 5th & 6th floor if that is a concern."
"Not sure anymore about receiving requests"
"Corner suite with lake view is worth the splurge!"
"Pets allowed floors 1-4, no pets floors 5-6."
"Pick an upper floor on back side to the east for view of lake"
US$ 124 - US$ 207 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
