I stayed here 4/20/13 I had booked through their website. When I arrived at 5pm the line was long and when it was my turn the computer was down, I requested they not give my room away since I needed to go to a wedding and that I would return after. The clerk Stephen said no problem they would hold my room until 2am. The hotel had a softball league staying there so many teenagers were about. When I returned at 9:30 pm I again waited in line and the people ahead of me were having difficulties apparently their booking wasn't available and they were going to have to switch rooms during their stay as well as have the wrong room the first night. I am usually patient, but when it was finally my turn the hotel didn't have the room I had booked available(king non-smoking) and wanted to give me a double-double. I told them I had paid more for a king and that is what I was expecting, the clerk called over another clerk and offered me the double-double again. I explained that I paid extra, and am a priority club member, that if I couldn't have the room I had booked, I would like a partial refund, or additional club points. Magically they found a room for me then. The room was large, clean, nicely furnished, well updated, and the bathroom was huge. I was able to enjoy a long soak in the tub, with nice soaps from bath and bodyworks. The breakfast buffet was tasty with lots of options. The wait staff in the sports zone was fast and friendly. The low carb ice cream in the sports zone was really good. The location is next to the Columbia mall and the interstate so it's very handy. If the check in had been better I would have upped my review score.
