Great place to stay. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. In-room wifi leaves a bit to be desired, but overall great hotel and excellent location

After a long & tiring flight, “Awesome Location!” is the 1st thought that came to my mind when I reached at the Inn at USC. This hotel is located near to the USC campus in the downtown Columbia, SC. The location is just right; within walking distance to the state house while both the Vista and Five Points are less than a mile distance.

The hotel is big & for the 1st time finding your room may look difficult at the structure of the hotel looks somewhat like a maze. For me, my room was located on the 3rd floor while the laundry was located on the 2nd floor at the extreme end. I was there for extended stay & hence this long to & fro walk to laundry was a little annoyance but still manageable.

I booked/ paid for a King Bed room however due to my extended stay I managed to negotiate it to King Executive Whirlpool Suite plus 2 complimentary passes to riverbanks zoo & garden at the price of a King Bed room.

The hotel serves breakfast in the morning with hot cooked to order eggs/ omelets which is included in your room rate. The hotel has small fitness center however it does not have a swimming pool.

In my opinion the property deserves 3 star for its quality & amenities; however I’ll add another 1 star for its friendly staff & the awesome location. Additionally I also owe 1 more star to this property due to room upgrade & free passes to zoo & hence the 5 star rating.

Finally, if the lack of swimming pool does not bother you much this property is a value for money in the heart of the City!

We were dropping our son off at college and were not at all familiar with the area. The location (on campus) was perfect and the staff was very friendly and helpful with suggestions and directions.
