“Hit up the bar.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014 via mobile

Tina will make you feel at home. This is a close knit bar, service is top notch. I thought i was home eating the special saving money. When entering the restaurant you are in the spot light. A special thank you to Tina, for remembering my name drink and even hummer.

Thank you for the great review and taking the time to write it. We will be sure to let Tina know you recognized her in your review! We are happy to hear she stood out to you on your stay. She works hard to remember her guest and what they like. We are pleased to know that you like the food we offer in the restaurant too. We like to change our special every day to give our guest a variety off the normal menu. We hope you will get to return soon and have a great year!

We needed to get off the highway during a heavy rainstorm and decided to stay here for the night. Very clean, comfortable room and beds. We had an issue with a noisy neighbor at 1am and the hotel security took care of it promptly. The staff was very helpful and friendly!! Would stay here again if needed!!

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We are glad you stopped and stayed during the bad thunderstorm. The hotel is conveniently located right off I-77 and half a mile from I-20. We are happy to know the hotel was to your liking. I am sorry to hear about the noisy neighbor in the other room but glad to know security took care of the noise issue. We keep staff around the clock to ensure our guest have a pleasant stay and rest. We are glad to know you would return again and hope you get the chance to do so. Have a safe travel and great summer!

Great place. Everything always stays clean very helpful staff. John Taylor was great at maintaining everything. I would recommend this location for everyone. Very pleasant experiences here. The establishment overall is very clean. The sheets get changed everything day. There's a laundry room downstairs, very convenient. The little store downstairs is decent priced.

Thank you so much for the review and taking the time to write it. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your time here at the hotel during your extended stay with us. Our staff works hard to make sure all guest have a memorable experience. I will be passing along the comments to John to let him know of his job well done! I am always happy to hear when the staff stands out for the guest to make their stay better. We do have a guest laundry room downstairs for use and a dry cleaning service that will pick up and deliver back in the same day. We offer a 24hour sweet shop to purchase items a guest might need during their stay but not want to go out to the store for. We offer a variety from simple candy bars to microwavable meals to everyday needs like medications, cups and umbrellas. We hope you will get to return again! Thank you again for the wonderful review. We hope you have a safe travel and wonderful summer!

Very good place to stay for business. Very adequate restaurant and bar on site for convenience. The rooms are well sized and quiet for a good nights sleep. Bathrooms are large and up to date. Could use more light in the rooms.

Our room was large with a king bed and sofa bed. The room had a cabinet for a microwave and refrigerator but there was no microwave (when I asked I was told that only queen bedded rooms had microwaves. Perhaps this was a price saving decision as the cabinet in the king bedded room we were in would have accommodated one!! The furnishings were beat up with the hard furnishings in a bad state due to years of vacuums being dragged against them. I had read in past reviews that this hotel and been remodeled and is well maintained but that isn't what we found. The headboard above our bed was very unattractive, as the vinyl was pealing and it looked as though someone had a dog in the room at one time because a corner of the headboard appeared chewed. Our room also had a shower instead of a tub. When I asked I was told that a few of the rooms had been remodeled to include showers but that info on which rooms had showers wasn't current in the computer. The grime around the shower door in our room indicated the shower had been there for many years. It may be past time to update the computer. The bed slept fine. We booked a rate with breakfast and the best thing I can say about the breakfast was that it cost $9. Juice was not included in that price. They had very overcooked (browned) scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon and potatoes as hot items. Cold choices were boxed cereal, an assorted fruit plate, assorted pastries/breads and yogurt. There was no other egg choices (nobody cooking to order) and no pancakes or waffles. The dining room was very dreary and I felt that I was eating in an economy hotel that advertised "full hot breakfast". Ya'll have probably seen the highway signs. For the price of the room plus breakfast ($109) I didn't feel I got value for the money. My advice if you stay here: get the best price you can find that does not include breakfast and eat somewhere else.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the remodeled rooms and be aware that king rooms have no microwaves and that some roo...

Thank you for the review and feedback from your recent stay. I am sorry to hear our hotel rooms did not meet your expectations. We have done many changes to the rooms as the guest reviews state. We would greatly appreciate it if you could email us and let us know which room you stayed in so we may look into and get these issues fixed. You can email us at guestservices@hicolumbiasc.com. We do offer a hot and cold buffet as well as a cook to order menu. We hope to hear from you soon and I hope in the future you allow us another opportunity to improve upon the perception you have of our property at the moment. Have a great summer.

The house keeping was very very professional. I like the fact that the head house keeper was very energetic even though the work can be backbreaking. I don't think the housekeeping department gets enough recognition for their hard work. So I wanted to take the time and to say THANK YOU!!!!!!!
