We stayed at the Inn at USC for a visit to Congaree National Park, which is about 30 minutes away. The inn is beautiful with outdoor courtyards where you can sit with a drink or book. Our room was very clean and comfortable. The hotel is really spread out, and I was surprised at how quiet it was -- we didn't hear any noise from rooms around or above us, and there was very little noise in the hallway. The breakfast that is included wasreally good, and the cooked items were hot and fresh. We would definitely stay here again!

Great location if you are visiting the University of South Carolina. Friendly staff. Very good breakfast.
We had a King suite with a pullout sofa. Everyone slept well and the rooms were quiet and clean.

The hotel lobby and nearby parking areas were under renovation when we were there. The WiFi was spotty in the lobby area. And, the front desk wasn’t that great at offering directions. (I needed to find a drug store or a grocery store and the clerk was nice, but completely unhelpful).

But, we would stay here again.

This hotel is located right on campus so it is perfect for being able to spend time with students during class breaks. Also the hotel has a free shuttle which you can use within a three mile radius. That is a great service since parking is limited and costly. The hotel itself is very quaint with southern charm. Loved the front porch with the rocking chairs for relaxing. All that being said there were some things that I was disappointed in and that explains the three star rating. The rates were on the high side and parking was an additional charge which I feel was an unnecessary charge since the parking facilities are on hotel property. Also the room cleanliness left a lot to be desired. There was mold under the soap holder in the bathroom and the caulking was also moldy. Dirty glasses left lying around on porch railings our entire visit. Breakfast was included but when we arrived at 830 most of the menu items were gone. They were replenished but not without feeling like we were a bother. Loved the location but the amenities need improvement.

The Inn at USC is amazing! The staff is very helpful and friendly, the hotel is clean and comfortable, the morning breakfast is super tasty and the hotel is beyond convenient to the U of SC-Columbia campus.
