Overall, it was an ok place to stay. We knew it was a pet friendly place, which was good b/c we had our Maltese as well but our room smelled like big wet dogs and dog poop! I think that a hotel that also except pets should clean the carpets every time someone leave out! We were there b/c our... More

La Quinta hotels are wonderful, in that they allow at no cost for you to bring your pets with you. However, this hotel does not offer rooms large enough for you and your pets to stay, without problems with space in your room! It would also behove La Quinta to allow customers who make reservations on line, to be able... More

Nice clean room. No charge for my pet. Nice clean comfortable bed, clean linens, clean carpet etc. Closet was a little musty smelling but other than that nice room! Stayed in a king executive room with a fridge, microwave. Very nice.

Upon arrival the power was out so we had over an hour wait until we could check into our room. That made for a late night. A generator or other backup power system for check-in would be nice if this is a common problem. Breakfast variety was lacking but good quality.

Nice hotel, good breakfast, dog friendly. Decent location, close to numerous restaurants, gas stations and about 10 minute drive to two local breweries (River Rat and Swamp Cabbage, both well worth a visit).

Have stayed here several times on our way back from Miami. Good value for the money. The rooms could be a little updated. Breakfast is always good, as with all the LQs. Would definitely stay here again in the future.

We stay at this hotel a couple of times each year when visiting family in Columbia. The rooms are always clean, staff members are friendly and helpful, the location is convenient to the interstate, and there are plenty of dining and delivery options. The free breakfast is a cut above the usual rolls and waffles, with eggs and bacon available.... More

We phoned ahead and made reservations to ensure a bed after a long day of driving. We were well attended to and was almost overwhelmed by the welcoming of the young lady at the front desk. She was extremely helpful, kind and warm....a welcomed change from a lot of places I frequent. The room was spacious with the TV the... More

Betty!!! Betty, is the most awesome front desk lady ever! She's funny, helpful, and sweet as can be! She needs a raise ;) I am here right now for my son's graduation from Army basic training at Fort Jackson. The room (117) is great! Bottom floor, right across from the breakfast room and vending machines (yet still quiet at night).... More

Arriving late, we were greeted very well and check-in was fast; our room was clean and beds were very comfortable. While retrieving items from my car, there was a uniformed security individual walking the property; area was secure and well lit. Breakfast was a full hot breakfast that was well supplied with different foods. All staff were very friendly and... More
