“Great location & Service”
Reviewed April 4, 2014

Our third stay while in Columbia. There twice a year doing relief work. My wife usually accompanies me. Although she has access to our car, she prefers to walk downtown or to the local college for tennis while I'm at work. This Inn is clean, reasonably priced and has a staff that goes above and beyond for their guest in every way possible. They are service oriented and appreciate your business.
A/C was loud, but didn't need it much as the weather was cool.

Room Tip: Not to worry, the staff will assign their best available.

This was the best sleep we had on our cross country drive. Not sure if it was the comfortable beds or due to 4 days of driving.

We were first given a large room with 2 queen beds & easy chair. It smelled freshly painted. AC worked okay but the button for continuous fan did not work. When asked about moving to another room due to the paint fumes, Olivia was very helpful and came up to the room with new keys rather than us going down to the front desk! However, when we first entered that room, it smelled of cigarette smoke. Olivia was still around & thought it was just paint we could be smelling. But then as she stepped into the room, she could smell the smoke odor too. This was a completely non-smoking hotel & she was surprised to smell the smoke. So we assume that either someone did smoke in there or some of the rooms used to be smoking room & they’ve converted to 100% non-smoking. We opted to go back to the original room since we would rather deal with paint fumes only. They need to do more than just paint if they’re converting previous room to non-smoking.

Overall, very nice clean room. Beds were quite comfortable. Breakfast was good.

This is my third time staying at this particular Best Western location. The convenience to the interstate system, the appearance of the facility, and the personable staff have made this my preferred "home away from home" when I am traveling in the Columbia, SC area.

this was a very nice Best Western. it is being renovated and updated but that was not a problem. The staff was very nice and helpful and the hotel is very near downtown, which is why I was in Columbia for stuff going on downtown.

I have been very pleased with this location. This was a return trip to Columbia for business and is the second time I have stayed there. Easy access to both I-26 and I-20. I will stay there again when traveling to this area.

We stayed here for one night on our way home, and for the (Haywire) price, it wasn't bad. The only thing I'd warn against is that the room doors slam if you don't hold them until they're shut, so it can get a little loud in the morning, but in all not a bad place.
