Reviewed April 18, 2013

Very clean and well kept. The continental breakfast was ok. Location is excellent. Close to the freeway. Bars and restaurants are in walking distance. Shopping center is close. The staff was friendly and helpful.

We were very surprised how nice this was for a discounted $70 per night. Rooms were very clean as was the pool. The employees were very nice too. We would stay there again the next time we go to Columbia SC.

We stayed here because of its willingness to take dogs and because it was for only one night. Those conditions made it manageable - barely.

We were in town for a concert at USC and did not want to board our two dogs. We had a two bedroom suite and it had a pullout. That was a real positive as it made it possible to spread out. But overall not "high quality" furniture, flooring, bathroom fixtures, tv, etc. My real complaint is that the internet was very slow. The 3 TVs during the NCAA tourney also helped make it bearable - we watched 2 games while my wife watched Say Yes to the Dress!

If it had been for more than one night, it would not have been acceptable.

Also, and this is both a pro and a con - there are a lot of retail stores, two malls, and lots of food establishments in the area. Therefore, while the location is very convenient it also makes it a very congested area. We found it tough to get out of the parking lot and it took about 15 minutes to get back to Route 26 to go downtown.

Would I stay again ... if it was for one night - maybe - but it does need a facelift and a better router.

Room Tip: End units that overlook Rt 26 are noisy.

The hotel is close to the highway and many great places to eat! It is also in a quiet area so you get great quality sleep. The hotel staff made sure we had everything we needed. Definitely would stay here again!

This is NOT a pet friendly hotel. They will not clean your room if you have a cat. They do not seem to have this problem with dogs. Front desk staff will look you in the face and tell you that they will make sure that your room gets cleaned but it never does. I was forced to stay here extended stay due to a house fire by my insurance company - I would NEVER stay here of my own free will. Service is terrible, walls paper thin, you can hear the people next door in the bathroom. Interstate is right next door and extremely loud. Parking lot is not big enough for hotel. Spend your money elsewhere.

Not up to Marriott standards, old, stained and tired...borderline dirty, we boooked it originally because it was a Marriott and because the price was decent for a gameday weekend. They were cleaning some sort of smelly leak out of the hallway carpets, and the entire place smelled of mold and mildew. The place needs a complete overhaul. Front desk person could care less about much.

I found the staff to be very helpful and nice, The room was clean and for the money it was a great value.Lots of shopping and resturants nearby. Movie theatre in walking distance. I was most impressed with the wonderful front desk staff. Louise was on the desk and was most helpful when my son left something in the room,she went out of her way to have the room searhed and the item returned. I would stay there again.

Room Tip: Away from the entrance,rooms were quiet
