I was in town for a night, and had visits in West Columbia and at USC, this hotel was perfectly located on the main street in town (Gervais St).
The hotel itself was just fine. The room was nice, not terribly noisy inside despite being on the Gervais side, bathroom was clean. The front desk staff was friendly enough - nothing to write home about, but very pleasant. Plenty of parking, although it was a bit odd to have to walk to the main door (which was along the driveway without a sidewalk) after 10pm. I understand the security issue, there's just no sidewalk to get to the main door from the parking lot.
I never understand why hotels under $100 offer free continental breakfast, and anything above has to charge, but whatever. (I booked through hotels.com, so I still paid less than $100.) I didn't pay for the breakfast buffet, but I'm sure it was nice. The wifi was still free, so that was good.
Again, I was just here for a night, and for a cheap hotel that's walking distance to USC, the Statehouse, and the little historic district, this is where to stay.
