Reviewed December 27, 2012

This is my fourth stay at the Homewood Suites in Columbia. Howard at the front desk is a true professional, and always greets me with a smile and check in was a breeze. Meals were good, and the rooms always are clean. I would recommend this hotel for anyone staying in the area. Although the rooms were clean. There are some deep cleaning items that need attention.. such as the celing fan and some minor cosmetic issues (doors need cleaned and or touched up with paint) the room has been updated with new carpet and paint. But the key items were spotless as always.

Thank you for staying with us a fourth time! We appreciate you taking the time to review our hotel. I'm pleased to hear our staff, especially Howard, made your visit memorable. We are completing our rooms refresh, and painting the doors and other items are on our agenda to be completed soon. Thank you, too, for letting me know about the ceiling fans. This is an item that is scheduled to be cleaned weekly, and I will follow up with my staff. We certainly look forward to your next visit with us, and thank you again for choosing our hotel.

This was my first visit to the Homewood suites, I usually stop downtown at the HAMPTON Inn which was full due to a gamecocks game.

This was a great hotel stayed for 5 nights, suite was a real suite with Kitchen area, lounge area office desk and seperate bathroom, all in all a spacious area.
The bed was very comfortable and sleep quality good due to the quiet location.
A free mangers dinner most evenings was very welcome along with a good hearty breakfast.
The hotel staff were friendly and helpful and the facilities, pool and Spa were great, very welcome at the end of a long day.
The hotel is right next to the Riverbanks zoo which is great for kids and also good fun if you have an afternoon to kill.
Right on th eInterstae exit its easy to get down town and takes only a few minutes.
This will be my preferred choice in the future.
Pricing was very reasonable too.

I stayed two nights at Homewood Suites for a recent business trip. I was pleasantly surprised at the size of the room - large suite with a full kitchen, living room and separate bedroom and bathroom. I don't know when the hotel was built, but it felt new. The room was very comfortable and quiet. The staff was helpful and friendly. They had a breakfast every morning and even dinner on several evenings (I didn't have the opportunity to sample the dinner). The only downside was there was not airport shuttle. The cab from the airport was about $25 with tip. Note: if you plan to walk anywhere from the hotel, there aren't any sidewalks, so you're better off driving/taking a cab. I enjoyed my stay here.

I have stayed with the Homewood chain many times while on business, so I look for a Homewood for overnight stays even if it is a little out of my way. I stop at the Homewood in Columbia on my way south on I-77. If you don't know Homewood, you basically have a small apartment with a full kitchen for the night. And a hot breakfast buffet is provided in the morning. The room and bath was clean and neat. Check-in was fine; luggage carts are at the automatic doors (Why don't all hotels have automatic doors?). The neighborhood is primarily car dealerships. The front desk staff can direct you to any restaurants you might need. I have stayed at this hotel for many years and the standard is maintained every visit I make there. The management and staff are to be commended.

Room Tip: I use a handicapped room and the staff has always been very attentive to my needs in this area. The...

I stayed at this hotel on a recent trip to Columbia, SC. I decided to stay at this hotel due to its affordable price and its location. The hotel is just a few minutes away from I-26, the zoo and about five minutes away from downtown Columbia. There are a lot of positives to this hotel, the first being the staff. Everyone was very friendly. I had to ask for a duplicate key to my room and the gentleman at the front desk made sure to ask to see my I.D. before issuing the additional card. This was wonderful because I have stayed in many a place where I've had to get an additional key or a re-key and the person at the desk activated it with no I.D. This made me feel safe and safety is important when you are traveling as single women.

The hotel has a hot breakfast and although it varies day by day, it is a real hot breakfast and the only thing you have to cook yourself is a waffle, but the waffle iron is very easy to use.

The room was great. We had a full kitchen with a standard sized fridge/freezer, a full sized microwave, coffee maker, toaster, two-burner stove and sink. There was a separate living room, bedroom with two queen beds and a nice sized bathroom. My only complaint is that it was difficult to have two people at the bathroom at the same time. But we were in a handicapped accessible room, so other rooms may be different. But the room itself was very clean, the bed and pillows were very comfortable. The room had high ceilings, and although it was 100 degrees throughout the weekend, the air conditioning kept the room comfortable.

The only con that I can think of is that the hotel is not near any restaurants. Now this may not be a big deal because they have a managers reception from Monday - Thursday, but if you aren't staying during those days then you have to fend for yourself.

Overall it was a great stay and I will visit this hotel again.

The hotel staff made us feel very welcomed. The room was very updated, clean, and attractive. The complimentary breakfast staff and the manager's reception staff were very courteous and attentive. The breakfast had lots of options and my entire family of four was satisfied. In addition, the manager's reception included a full dinner!!! They had complimentary meatloaf, rolls, corn, potatoes, and salad. In addition, they served complimentary wine! They checked on us as soon as we finished our meal, and immediately picked up our dishes. They also refilled drinks. In addition, they made sure that there was always food available. It was like being in an all-inclusive hotel. The staff members and the amenities were absolutely WONDERFUL. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
