The Inn At Claussen's is on the very edges of both the University of South Carolina and the vibrant area called 5 Points. Our whole family had just stayed at The Claussen for 4 days last weekend for our daughter's graduation. Go Kate & our beloved Gamecocks! When we come to Columbia we do try and stay at The Claussen...

We arrived about 1 am and Herbert at the front desk was terrific. With a child at USC, we've stayed at other local hotels, but this one has been the best. Right near Five Points, it's within walking distance to everything.

I really liked the location and the cool architecture and various rooms. I had a porch and the old style factory was very cool. I would highly recommend this location. Awesome rooms, and really good service. Not your ordinary stay. But it can get quite hot on really hot nights, and no A/C on the main factory floor. Also I... More

Dear Macy, Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us and upcoming guests. The next time you are here ask to see other rooms; with 29 rooms, and no two rooms being the same, you get a different experience each time. Again, thank you. Regards, Amy More

Drove right past the Inn because the giant sign carved into the building says Claussen Bakery so I got sidetracked. The staff is great, the room clean. Ok there is a train track right next door but I heard two and I was out like a light in my comfy bed. Ate at restaurant attached to rear of hotel. Starbucks... More

First stay at this hotel while son deciding if he wants to attend USC - the answer was yes, so we'll be returning. Easy walking distance to USC and great on sight restaurant. Rooms a little quirky but nice.

Dear Virginiahome64, We are delighted to welcome you to the Gamecock family and happy you will be with us the next four years! Each and every room is decorated differently. This is one of the many elements to make our hotel so unique from the others in the area. Feel free to ask the concierge to let you see other... More

Booked a room here while visiting USC with my daughter. The building was so cute and pics on the website looked great. This inn could be awesome but misses the mark terribly. We stayed in various inns and hotels over the 6 days we were in South Carolina and this was the worst by far. Apparently during the Master's, many... More

Very comfortable and good sized room in a delightfully up-dated historical building. Best location to choose if hitting the shops, delis, pubs,clubs and coffee houses in Five Points is your goal. Nice touch: breakfast is delivered to your room at a time of your choosing. Afternoon wine and cheese service another gracious touch. Actually, we had a glass of wine... More

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!
