Staybridge Suites Columbia
Ranked #7 of 94 Hotels in Columbia
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 29, 2013

The hotel is located about one mile from the downtown restaurant area and college campus. If you are retired military this is less fifteen minutes from the Fort Jackson front gate. We had the two bedroom suite. Nice small common area with a kitchenette and front room area. Two separate bedrooms and each had a bathroom. We were in front towards the main road, but did not have any noise problems. Stayed on a Thursday and Saturday nights. Despite being a Platinum Priority Club member the male desk clerk on Thursday night did what he had to, but he was cold and not that welcoming. The female on Saturday night was very accommodating.

I lived at the Staybridge Suites Columbia for 4 1/2 months from May 21 until September 30...yes, you heard me correctly! I did say 41/2 months while on business travel.

It became my home away from home and met all the expectations I could have had for long term stay in a suite hotel, i.e., staff was extremely friendly, in-suite kitchen worked great and housekeeping was always efficient and well done.

As you will read from others who have reviewed this Staybridge location, a casual but usually delicious Monday-Thursday buffet dinner is served, as is a pleasant breakfast buffet all throughout the week. This type of benefit really means a lot to long term guests and business travelers like me. It meant being able to work all day and, if I didn't feel up to it, then not worry about having to cook or go out to dinner. It was also a big savings to me!

The facilities are a newer construction, suites are furnished with modern things, and everything was very well kept and worked for me during my stay! Laundry room did get crowded when the hotel was full but this was not usually a problem for me. It is also very conveniently located near downtown Columbia and the Vista for bars & restaurants and is a mere stone's throw away from the major freeways.

The General Manager at the time of my stay was Drew and he was always very polite, friendly and helpful (especially with my numerous requests for help with preparing invoices for expense account reporting).

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND STAYBRIDGE SUITES COLUMBIA FOR BUSINESS OR PLEASURE TRAVEL!!!

The staff is always friendly and the rooms are spacious and well-appointed. Amenities like pool, exercise room and free laundry are nice (although the washers and dryers have been ill-used by guests that clearly don't have good habits). But the weeknight manager's reception is awesome, with real food, beer and wine.

my son graduated from fort jackson in january. my other older son and my 9 year old grandson accompanied me out to south carolina for the ceremony. i have never been to this area of the country before, and when he first left for basic training last october, i knew i would be going out for graduation, but at that time, i didn't know exactly when graduation would be, how long i would be staying, or who would be going with me. i was planning on taking my grandson, but i wasn't sure who else would be with us.
i don't stay in hotels frequently, and i wasn't at all concerned with what hotel chain i stayed at, i was more interested in what hotel i could find that met all of my requirements, with my main requirement being i knew i wanted to be somewhere easily accessible to fort jackson. i also wanted a hotel room that would be big enough for whoever ended up going with me, someplace preferably with a kitchen so we could save some money by cooking meals, and i wanted someplace that was a nicer hotel that we could hang out in during the day if the weather was bad, preferably a hotel with an indoor pool. i didn't want to get stuck in a small, one room hotel room with nothing to do in the middle of winter.
i took a long time and really compared hotels on tripadvisor, and from reading the reviews, this hotel looked like it would be a really good option. my only concern was most of the reviews talked about the close proximity to usc, but there weren't too many that talked about being close to fort jackson for graduation. i did find a few, and i they all said fort jackson was easy to get to from here, so i went ahead and booked the queen suite at this hotel.
i'm so glad i did! the hotel was great. i had originally booked the room for mid-december, but the graduation date changed to mid-january because of the holidays. the hotel easily accommodated the change. we brought food with us so we could do some cooking, but with the free breakfast and supper, we didn't even need most of it. the bed was the most comfortable bed i've ever slept in. the free laundry services were a great added bonus that we took advantage of the night before we left. the pool wasn't huge, but my grandson loved it. the hotel was easy to get to and easy to find. our room was on the side of the hotel that faces the highway, but we didn't notice any road noise at all. and my main concern, which was being close to fort jackson, turned out not to be a concern at all. the front desk told us how to get there, and provided us with a card that gave explicit directions how to get there on one side and explicit directions how to get back on the other side. it was about a 15 minute drive, and it couldn't have been easier! everybody was friendly and helpful throughout our whole stay. after we checked out and left and were about an hour down the road, my son happened to remember a magnet he bought the day we road-tripped to charleston that he had left hanging on the fridge. he called the hotel, and asked them if anybody happened to find it when they were cleaning the room, if it could be sent to my house. about a week after we got home, the magnet arrived at my house in the mail. he was really glad to get it back, and i was really impressed that the hotel made the effort to get it back to him. they could have easily have not even looked for it and we would have never known. the magnet only cost him $1, and they spent $.90 in postage to get it back to him. that gesture in itself was above and beyond what customer service should be in my mind.
i don't know when or if i will be back in this area of the country again, but if i do, i will definitely stay at this hotel. and if i'm traveling anywhere else in the country and there is a staybridge suites in the area, i will definitely check them out.

The suite is huge. It was clean. It had a full sized fridge, stove, dishwasher, and microwave. A door separates the bedroom from the sitting area with the pull out couch.....nice privacy when traveling with kids or early risers. Lots of closet room, nice shower, quality towels and sheets. Queen beds...comfortable. Provided hot dinner and breakfast. I've never stayed with this hotel before but now it's my hotel of choice. It very close to the city's river walk park. You can walk to it...go if you get a chance. We saw lots of turtles in the water. Provided hot dinner and breakfast.

We recently stayed at this hotel as a home base for travelling to Augusta Georgia. The large suites are clean roomy and suitable for 4 adults. It is conveniently located near a highway and a short drive from USC. This hotel would be a great choice for a weekend golf trip or a central location for travelling to Augusta, Charleston, or Savana.

Dear dpharm,

Thank you very much for the positive ratings and kind words! We are so glad that you chose the Staybridge Suites Columbia as your home base while traveling back and forth to Augusta, Georgia. We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed our spacious, clean suites and convenient location. We are located near Interstates 20, 26, 77, and 95, making us a great stopover location for travelers interested in visiting popular Southern cities – just like you mentioned in your review! In fact, we encourage travelers to turn their quick stopover into an extension of their vacation so that they have time to visit exciting Columbia attractions such as Riverbanks Zoo, USC, and the beautiful Lake Murray. Riverbanks Zoo is ranked one of the top 10 zoos in the country by Tripadvisor, so we hope all of our guests have a chance to check it out during their stay! Thanks again for all of your time and feedback. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us and hope that you will come back to visit us again soon!
