“Recommend for USC Families”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

The room was clean and a good size, staff was friendly. The free breakfast and afternoon beer/wine and appetizers a plus. Also close to USC and downtown. I'd stay here again.

We were moving our daughter into college from up north and the rolling carts were invaluable as we had everything she was moving to school with in the car and moved it into the room.

I log a lot of hotel nights for both business and pleasure. I rarely just LOVE a hotel and can't remember the last time I wrote a review. This place just feels comfortable. The floor plan and decor really work. Lovely granite, stainless and cherry wood. The attention to detail is amazing. Full length mirror, TV set up was great - big TV that swiveled from couch to bed, intuitive remote, list of stations. The AC was wonderful. Bathroom very nice and bed comfy. Staff is friendly and awesome breakfast with some rotation. I got this hotel on Hotwire. I think it's probably on the far edge of the central/downtown area. It's a bit out of the way but you can't really be in Columbia without a car and nothing is too far away. The Riverfront park is next door and a BEAUTIFUL walk!

My family recently stayed at this property the weeked of 9/7. It was hubby's bday and we wanted to do something on our own yet still travel with the kids. The property is IMMACULATE and the staff were beyond accommodating. The property is very accessible to the insterstate and other surrounding Columbia venues. The suite itself was MORE than enough room for our family of 5. Beds were soft and furniture/decore had the modern touches (granite counter tops and stainless steel fridge-the provided dvd made a nice touch). The glass shower stall was a nice touch as well. One of the sellling features for me, was the phone in the indoor pool area. Not only did they have a phone right at the pool, but posted above the phone in clear lettering was the name of the property and the address. (Anyone who deals in safety/emergency situations knows that during most emergencies-especially away from hm-knowing where you are to get help to you is crucial.) That just shows to me that not only is this property concerned about the stay being pleasant, but SAFE. THIS WILL BE OUR GO TO SPOT FOR COLA ALWAYS! THANK YOU STAYBRIDGE OF COLA!

We stayed here when going to see our son graduate from the U.S. Army Ft. Jackson Basic Training, which was about a 15 min easy drive. We loved that breakfast & dinner were both INCLUDED in the cost of our stay. The last thing we felt like doing was seeking out a dinner spot after traveling all day so having dinner included right at the hotel was great. In the morning we had to get up fairly early to hit the road so having breakfast before we left was very convenient. The food was hardy including grits, eggs, sausage or bacon, waffles, cereal, milk, juice, muffins, toast, coffee, etc....Each night they have a new menu and the food was really good! One night we had Pepper Steak over rice...yummy! Also during dinner hours there was wine & beer are included at no charge! Our room was very spacious for a family of four, it was very nice having the small kitchen and living room area separate from the bedroom. Our room was just a standard room, nothing fancy but it sure felt fancy! The hotel also offered a couple computers and printers to use in the lobby area and free laundry facilities. The hotel had a pool but no hot tub, that's the only reason I gave it a 4/5 review. The staff at this hotel was very friendly and accommodating, we would definitely stay here again!

They work very hard to accommodate the guests in the hotel. They go above and beyond to help their guest have the best stay possible. We stay here every time we go South Carolina (daughter is in college there). The manager of the food went out of her way to ensure that we had breakfast food, because of our dietary restrictions. We were impressed before, but we are fans of the staff now! See you in November. The Washington family

Room Tip: All rooms are great.

First off, we stayed for 3 nights. We are from Columbia and had work on our house being completed.

The staff is great. From check in to check out.

The location is right in the heart of downtown Columbia.

Housekeeping, not so much. Our couch had 7 holes in it that ranged from a golf ball size to a grape fruit size.

The doors to the bedroom would not close.

They only cleaned our room once. They never replaced the towels, always had to go to front desk.

Breakfast was bland with powdered eggs, microwaved sausage and greasy bacon.

This seems like a business hotel which I do not usually stay in. Not sure if that was the issue or not.

Love this hotel. Excellent service. And beautiful rooms. Only paid $129. For two queen beds, living area, and full kitchen. Shower is gorgeous. Couldn't ask for anything else from this hotel. The room is super clean as well as the hotel grounds.
