“Will definitely stay again.”
Reviewed November 16, 2013

This is exactly what I was looking for. I was traveling with two small children and needed a no frills but clean, quiet place to stay. Property is kept clean, rooms are small but there are microwaves and refrigerators in the rooms(this was a necessity with the kids). The breakfast is adequate and the staff is super friendly and accommodating. I'm very pleased with our stay.

Got a grate rate to stay here on a Saturday night when the chickens weren't playing at home, I imagine the rates would be about triple on home football weekends. Parking lot is kinda small and crowded, but the hote,l even an older one was nice and comfortable and staff was very nice and friendly, even gave away one of my thousand point awards for good service to the young man that checked me out, so I really enjoyed my stay here. safe quiet location in a suburb of Columbia and close as can be to just about anything.

We are glad you decided to stay with us while in Columbia., SC. Our rates even when our
SC Gamecocks play at home are still affordable, for we not increase our rates so much that our non football traveling guests can not afford to stay with us, and or come back.

We also strive for great customer service 100% of the time here at the Comfort INN Columbia, as as you mentioned in your comment you received.

Again thanks for choosing us to stay for you could have chosen any other hotel to stay at during your visit.

Thanks,

Timothy a. Fields

The gentleman that checked us in and out was extremely friendly and accommodating. I called first just to get a price, after telling me a very fair amount, I told him we would try to make it there that night. Not knowing, either way, he STILL held a room for us because he knew we had been driving awhile. Upon check out he asked if there was anything he couldve done to make our stay even more pleasant. His kindness was plenty. All he asked was for us to call back and tell him. The rooms were extremely clean and were equipped when anything you would poss. need. The tub/ shower looked brand new. The room also had a chair w/ a foot rest, which my husband appreciated greatly. They were also very accommodating to our child's service dog. The staff is awesome. I know I've said a lot about them but that goes a long way in making anyone's stay nice.

Older property and clean, but upkeep has been cheap. Paint spots on furniture and on floor tiles. Parking lot is snug. Internet problems in evening - perhaps there's too many people downloading videos. Bedding is comfortable, but older. Heat/AC was relatively quiet. Room is relatively small. Staff is friendly.

We were in town for parents' weekend at USC and waited until the last minute to book a hotel. Because of the high hotel demand in the area, room rates were very high -- we paid over $100/night for this hotel. Upon arriving, the front desk staff was very friendly and got us into our room right away. As we entered the corridor to our room the hotel stunk of cigarette smoke. The room was outdated and in need of TLC. The bathroom door was covered in wood veneer that was missing in spots and peeling. The towels and linens were very well worn. The room was very warm. There are individual heat/ac units in each room that needed to be turned on. While the room eventually cooled down, the unit created a fair bit of noise which is annoying if you're a light sleeper. The free breakfast was fine if you stuck with packaged items like oatmeal and yogurt but the hot food was poor quality as were the watered down juices.

Your views and others of our hotel we take seriously. As a Representative of this hotel I want to ensure that what our guests think of us is positive, while most who stay with us view us as a great stay mid tier hotel and great value as it relates to rate especially for this market.

We are not a perfect hotel, however we strive to be better than most. We value and respect your observations of our hotel and I have shared your comments and observations with ownership and management and be rest-assured these area will be corrected.

Again, I thank you and we value your input and hope that you decide when coming back to the area you will choose us to stay.
