I have stayed at the SpringHill in Columbia multiple times. Every employee I've interacted with has been warm and friendly, and they make it a point to say hello or "Have a nice day!". The facility is always clean, the breakfast is well above average, and the pantry items for sale near the front desk are fantastic. There are endless choices for restaurants within a 5 minute drive of the hotel, including nearly every possible ethnic restaurant you could want.
I gave the facility a rating of four out of five because I find the beds extremely hard, and the exercise equipment is in terrible shape. Also, the pool is very small and not as well kept as the rest of the facility. Knowing all this, I have stayed here probably 10 times in the last year. I can overlook a few minor inconveniences to avoid a 30+ minute drive to other similarly appointed hotels.
