We stayed here for a night as part of a driving tour of South Carolina and Georgia and thought we'd give the hotel a go on the basis of TA reviews. All in all it was a bit of a mixed bag - I think the people behind the hotel are trying to do the right thing, but we would... More

Our young people who traveled from all over the south had the best experience ever - and we have been to alot of places over the years! Awesome staff, helped us get chairs for our meetings, the rooms exceed our expectations and our guests... More

I was a bit hesitant to stay in 5 Points and next to the rail line ... But Claussens exceeded expectations on all levels. The room was clean and simple, but tastefully decorated. The bed was one of the most comfortable hotel beds I've slept in anywhere. Thankfully it was before school started, so 5 Points wasn't hopping with students.... More

Don't expect luxury accommodations but you will get luxury 5-star service from every staff member you meet. My room was simply decorated. Bed was plush and slept comfortably and the upgraded shower heads made the shower that much more relaxing. I'm not in Columbia often. It will most definitely revisit the exquisite charm known as Claussens the next time I... More

Went by reviews of the hotel, but didn't live up to reviews. Worst stay and poor nights rest. Issues: Front entrance door is worn and needs painting - its your first impression, TV remote won't work in bed given that the TV sensor is so high, room darkening shades don't work when you have a safety light coming in from...

We were on a long, multi-day drive returning from our summer vacation, and We could tell Columbia was going to be the best stopping point the following evening. A little searching led me to select Claussen's, in part because it looked like a break from the roadside chains and in part because of the opportunity it afforded to see a... More

Being dedicated to a chain we were skeptical but Claussens was amazing. The staff were very friendly and more importantly eager to help whenever needed. We stayed in an upstairs room but didn't have the loft they described but was still cozy. We did peak in while cleaning and will be back for one of those beautiful treasures!! I did... More

I have been traveling to Columbia for 4 years and have typically stayed in another hotel but decided to try something different that was closer to my daughter's apartment. I was pleasantly surprised. The room I booked was a king standard and it was lovely. The bed was comfortable and the room was very clean. There was plenty of parking... More

The staff were friendly and helpful but my suite was was decorated in Modern Danish Discomfort and a bit shabby. The bed was uncomfortable and the stained contoured living room chair was uncomfortable as was the desk chair with a hole in the seat. The phone is upstairs in the bedroom so if you are working at the desk downstairs... More
