The Inn At Claussens has several unique touches: each room has a different decor with attached, quaint outdoor patios; complimentary continental breakfast is of high quality, (including the coffee!) and is delivered to room. There is also a complimentary wine and cheese reception each evening in their comfortable living room area off of lobby...and an extra bonus is their accommodating... More

I love this place overall -- staff is super friendly & the location is terrific. So let's do the "best" first, shall we? The building is on the National Register of Historic Places; so some of the inconveniences have to be overlooked because of the incredible charm. Not having an elevator is overcome by knowing where the park in order... More

The accommodations were wonderful, as were the people that work there. Particularly Allison and Eric. You have a choice of breakfast in the lobby or brought to your room, as well as delicious choices for breakfast. We really enjoyed our stay!

What a wonderful and beautiful place to stay. Each room has different décor, which creates such beautiful character. The entire staff was so friendly and extremely helpful. Great restaurants are on the other side of the hotel, so the location couldn't be better. What a fabulous place to stay! I will stay at the inn, each time I come into... More

The Inn at Claussen's was a nice change. The location was EVERYTHING. This was the main reason that I chose this spot. Everything that you need or want is in walking distance. My partner and I stayed for Valentine's Day. I purchased the special that the Inn was offering for that weekend, which included my choice of wine or champagne... More

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.
