I traveled to Columbia on business, and found that the major hotel chains were 100% booked. The only rooms my colleague and I could find were at Claussen's. I stayed on a Sunday-Thursday in July. Several circumstances have led me to write this review. I am not a complainer, but I can only take so much. The hotel staff has... More

I love this unique hotel that was once a bakery. The rooms are larger than most hotels I've stay at and I love the lofts with the spiral stair case. Having breakfast delivered to my room was a plus. This place is a must stay if you come to columbia it's close to everything.

The Inn is lovely. We stayed in a suite with spiral staircase with impressive modern furnishings (except for the platform on the platform bed which had very sharp corners). The continental breakfast delivered to the door was very tasty and more generous than one would expect. Mr. Friendly's restaurant right next door was very good also and there are numerous... More

The inn is a converted bakery and they kept that authentic feel to the hotel. It is on the national historic register. Only 28 rooms but cozy and well kept. It is within walking distance to small shops and some of the best restaurants in town. We stayed on the first floor and the room was so big and had... More

Dear retiredLinda, Our goal is to provide a cozy and personal experience for all of our guests. Since we are a 29-room property we can add finer touches that bigger hotels are not able to accommodate, such as a nightly wine and cheese reception and breakfast delivered to your room, complimentary, every morning. We thank you for sharing your comments... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Inn for one night. It was nice - our room had a patio. Everything was clean, and the king size bed was comfy. Staff were helpful and friendly. It's a cab ride away from the Vista and Arena, but there are bars and restaurants within walking distance.

At first blush this dated brick building doesn't appear to present itself as a boutique hotel. Once inside the sweeping staircase makes you realize this former bakery factory has quite a bit of charm. The entire hotel was reserved for a wedding and what a wonderful job they did to make it a great experience. Manager Amy and front desk... More

Claussens is definitely the best place to stay in the downtown area . The rooms are comfortable and very unique. You may stay there on several different occasions and enjoy a different room experience each time. The location is great for biking, running etc as it occupies a space right in the middle of Columbia's most scenic neighborhoods. Dining options... More

Was booked there through my company and didn't know what to expect, but I was made to really feel welcome by the concierge Allison. I was very impressed with how friendly she was. The free glass of wine at check in was nice and the delivered breakfast also rocked. I suggest them highly.

I was booked at this location for by an organization wooing our business. New to Columbia, it felt as if I were just a tad too much out of the way. I would have preferred a standard business hotel such as the Marriott, Sheraton or Hilton downtown and closer to the Statehouse. With that said, room was comfortable, air conditioning... More
