I will never stay at this motel again! Room was dirty, things were broken, & staff was incredibly rude to my family, including my children. Continental breakfast was a joke. Do yourself a favor & find someplace else. Anyplace else!

Never showed up at a hotel to be locked out and have to stand outside to wait for the staff to wake up to come let us check in. Horrible customer service. When it was time to check out we had to wait for them to wake up once again to check us out. There was never anyone at the... More

The rooms were clean and the Staff were pleasant. The price was right but don't expect a mini Fridge in the room. The free breakfast was strictly Continental with no frills.

The room was nasty. Carpet was so dirty your feet were black if you walked on it without shoes. Air conditioner sounded like a freight train was coming through. Luckily, we only stayed one night as we were heading to N. Myrtle Beach. The "breakfast" was a stale muffin and bitter coffee. UGH!

There is no closer hotel: it is one block away. The door to the rooms face outside. The rooms were clean, but not spotless. Lots of locks on the doors, and I used them. I did not feel scared from predators, more scared of the bugs I saw crawling outside on the porch. There was a hole in the floor... More

I usually trust the Choice Hotels brands. In this case I was horribly wrong. The room was in need of a renovation. Peeling paint, areas of "touch up" paint in a different color. Mold in the bathroom, the towel bar was broken, tile was in very poor and disgusting shape. When I woke up, I had red marks on my... More

Having two years of experience in a hotel in Cincinnati, OH--- and being a college major in Hospitality Management--- I know the difference in a well maintained hotel and a dump. This place was, without a single doubt, a dump. I had reserved two rooms for my family--- we were coming from Ohio to South Carolina for my older sister's... More

I stayed with a small group in 5 rooms while in Columbia for a class for 2 nights. Upon arriving, the boy at the desk was very helpful and friendly. Lobby seemed clean and so did the pool area. This is an older hotel so don't expect all the bells and whistles especially for the price. The parking garage was... More
