We were here to visit friend in the area. So we checked in, showered and met them for dinner. The front attendant was very nice, room clean and ready for us to get a good nights rest. We will be back again. They do have a full breakfast but we were meeting friends at an IHOP.

Was driving from New York to Florida, and stayed here overnight. many hotels right off I77 were full, and this one is a couple of miles off I-77 but the price was great, and the hotel is very clean and staff friendly. My only comment would be that the rooms could use a bit more light.

We stopped here before heading to Myrtle Beach. I found this hotel online. I was a little worried, since we have never stayed here before. But, it was nice and clean. My kids loved the pool. The only complaint is with the continental breakfast. If you don't get down there as soon as they offer it, it is slim pickings.... More

Here for a short stay during a graduation ceremony. On the side of a highway, the area is a bit noisy but centrally located. This unit is older, fairly well maintained. Breakfast standard. Lots of military use, and lots of young men around. They were well behaved. If I were a woman looking for a quiet place for business use,... More

We go to Columbia a couple of times a year to see my nephew, his wife and their small son. We have stayed in many nice hotels, but all were more expensive than this one. The location was convenient to the things we needed and lots of nearby restaurants and shopping, and also right on a major artery. The check... More

We stayed at this hotel for a solider that was graduating from Basic Training at Ft. Jackson. Check in was simple and easy and the clerk was speedy and gave us information to get to the base. The room was fine, nothing too fancy. The morning breakfast was good and had several choices. Our biggest complaint was the parking...there is... More

The hotel has great breakfast very friendly staff and is clean. The only thing I did not like is that I could hear the room above me walking around and it disturbed my sleep I guess the walls are really thin?!?!

We stayed here recently when we were at the Masters. Reservation process and check-in experience was terrific! Our room was fantastic! I was welcomed as a Priority Club member and we all received a nice welcome bag (my wife and our friends, who also stayed there). The lobby and breakfast bar area/commons are nicely decorated. Many selections for breakfast and... More

This was a nice hotel. Good sized beds, clean room. No complaints. The lobby is very nicely decorated, and the morning breakfast was better than I expected for a hotel. The rooms were very quiet with little hallway noise coming in. Overall, I would stay again. It is in a good location, surrounded by lots of restaurants and stores if... More
