When I was a child growing up in Columbia, we used to visit the Claussen's Bakery. So nearly 10 years ago, I was excited to see that it had been converted into a hotel. We have stayed there several times since 1997 and it is always a fun experience. The rooms are all different and nicely decorated, provide all the... More

I was in the area with my daughter. We were there to visit USC, which is right around the corner. The Inn was very quaint. The rooms very nice and clean. They deliver breakfast to your room in the morning, just fill out a card and leave it on the door. It was delivered in very timely manner. The staff... More

The Inn was lovely. Well appointed rooms with patios. Unfortunately it is located in the wrong place, literally right next to RR tracks. I provide only a 3 star due to what we paid and the annoyance of the trains.

I love this hotel, the bakery building, and the staff. The wine and cheese in the afternoon, and the breakfast to your room, is fun and a nice touch. The location can't be beat, within walking distance to bars and restaurants. The parking was free, although I didn't use it. I thought the rate was great, I booked on Booking.com.... More

One good thing in Columbia is The Inn at Claussen's. We stayed here in October, 2014 for one night and enjoyed everything about the Inn. The breakfast was good, the room was exceptionally clean and the location is very convenient. We are planning our next visit for March and are looking forward to staying here again.

My husband and I stayed at Claussens for a night and were disappointed by our overall stay. Booking the room (which was over $200 a night) was a piece of cake and sounded luxurious with many added bonuses to our stay...such as a bottle of wine, scheduled room service for breakfast the next morning, etc. When we arrived we were,...

We decided to try this place out because it was the near USC campus and our sons dorm and walking distance to 5 Points. While it is a boutique style hotel it is by no means upscale. We had reserved two queen beds and when we got there the very nice young lady at the desk informed us that we... More
