“Very nice place”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Only reason I did not give it a 5th star is because the breakfast lacked a lot. Room was very clean, and looked pleasant. Loved the stairwell to the 2nd floor. Hotel staff was nice, and engaging.

Breakfast was not so pleasant. I was going to eat the grits, eggs, and bacon. None of the 3 were worth eating. Grits were dry, eggs were microwaved, and bacon was so thin you could see through it. Orange juice machine basically gave me water with orange coloring in it.

I ended up eating a bowl of raisin bran and drinking apple juice which was ok.

Room Tip: I got a single King. Very confortable.

This hotel is not in the best of locations and the only perk is the airport is close.
Be sure to get something to eat before you get settled in because there is only a
very few options. Most Country Inns are friendly and I did not experience the same here
as other locations. Could be an off day. I probably would not stay here again.

We've enjoyed staying at this location many times in the past 10 years and the staff has always been friendly and helpful. However, our late January stay found room 121 in need of repainting and carpet cleaning. Also, the fridge was full of water due to faulty defrosting. With several newer but higher priced hotels in the Columbia area, this hotel needs freshening up to bring us back again.

Nice, clean hotel with excellent staff. The location is convenient to the CAE airport, and above all the best choice in the airport proximity. The city of Columbia is at an easy reach, as the hotel is close to I-26. If you're stuck on foot, a couple of food choices are within walking distance. Traveling often for business, this hotel meets all my needs. Upgrading to a suite, especially if you have a prolonged stay, is worth the extra space to sit and work - flat screens in both the sitting area and the bedroom. The internet connection in hotels is usually a frustration point, but the WiFi connectivity here is strong, consistent, and easy to access (no passcode from the desk is needed!). Good value for the money.

We were attending the Army Basic Training graduation and this hotel was conveniently located from Fort Jackson. Everyone seems to be very nice. Room and public areas were clean. The pillows are smaller than conventional pillows and this caused me to loose some sleep.
Jacuzzi and pool were not working, but again I didn't come here to the pool and Jacuzzi.
On a side note for people visiting Fort Jackson, there are two hotels inside the base.

Came in late at night, check-in was fast and efficient. Did receive keys which didn't work but got it sorted quickly at the front desk. Fitness room was on par with what you find elsewhere in these category hotels. Standard US continental breakfast, not impressed by the plastic cutlery and plates though. Was asked for a form confirming my Carlson Friends&Family rate at check-out which I tried to explain does not exist but the man at the front desk was adamant I had to bring one to use the rate. Clearly he does not know how the Friends&Family rate works. As a Silver Elite-member I rarely appreciate having to argue at the front desk in the morning.

We stayed here for three days for the Univ of South Carolina graduation. The location is good, midway between the airport and the university. Maybe an eight minute drive to the school. The hotel was clean and the room was fine. To its credit, the hotel pool was open and heated perfectly. Breakfast was what you'd expect: not high end, but serviceable, with both hot and cold foods, three juice choices, and three coffee choices. What kept the hotel from being rated "excellent" was the wi-fi. Not good. Hard to get on it, and once on it, you could lose it at any time and have to start over. Aggravating. If you don't use or need a computer when you stay here, then I highly recommend the hotel. They're hard-working and attentive. The desk is accomodating and friendly. And it's right off Interstate I-26.

Room Tip: There's no airport noise, so don't worry about that. You're less likely to hear the high...
