I booked this hotel for my sons (3 and 11) and I to stay while my oldest attended USC camp. It was as expected and reviewed. No frills, safe, clean. Workers were renovating inside which was not an inconvenience. The workers were all considerate and pleasant. The pool was closed for 3/4 nights which was an unexpected inconvenience. I only...

Thank you for your review of the Fairfield Inn & Suites Columbia Northeast! I am sorry to hear that you were inconvenienced by the pool being out of order during your stay.

Columbia was our target from FL on the way up to NY. As usual, we stop at the "Welcome Area" for SC, and picked up a Hotel brochure, and from that picked this Fairfield (we've stayed at a number of these and like the experience). Slightly difficult to find but no big deal. The check in lady definitely lacked warmth,... More

Not my favorite hotel. Marriott quality inside, but the neighborhood has nothing to offer. The hotel is hard to get to and there is nothing near by. Will I stay here again...don't think so.

Nothing really out of the ordinary with this FI. Bed was comfortable, staff was friendly and helpful. The included breakfast was typical of FI fare, so nothing unexpected there. All in all, a good stop on a week of traveling from south GA to VA.

There is no hotel signage at the I-26 exit and the actual street signs are very small to read, especially in heavy traffic. Keep your GPS handy but be prepared to take a wrong turn or two! The attentive hotel clerk was very patient with us as we called him several times for directions.

Dear TNTRAVELER003: Thank you for your comments about signage to our hotel and the need for better signage. We have billboards, highway exit signs, bench's, trailblazers and even have a sign in the church yard where you turn. It can always be better and were always looking for ways to make it better and easier for the customer. We appreciate... More

We were driving home from Florida to PA and wanted to break up the trip, which is never super easy when traveling with 2 dogs. Columbia was a good stopping point so I looked for a pet-friendly Marriott that wasn't too far out of the way (i.e. off the highway). The Fairfield Inn looked like a good option - and... More

Stayed just one overnight in route to other places. Room was clean and inviting. Update bath was a pleasure. Breakfast was a little disappointing. No eggs. They did have waffles and biscuits. All in all it was a nice stay and I wouldn't hesitate to stay again. Front desk staff was very efficient and welcoming.

The biggest problem with this hotel was its location. It is SO close to the interstate, with LOUD truck traffic all night long. If you want to WALK to a restaurant, it's a lonely, dark walk, at least in February. And we did not find the listing of nearby restaurants on their website to be very accurate: one restaurant listed... More

Fairfield Inns are always a good choice for an overnight stay. This one in Colombia, South Carolina about half an hour from Congaree National Park, is no different. Breakfast was good and ample. I always enjoy getting the included USA Toay.
