Stayed here for a USC football game, and have been several times before in years past. It is not a "destination" hotel, it works for a place to come in and out of when you go somewhere in Columbia.
The basement parking works fine, it is tricky and yes you have to be careful for about 10 seconds. The basement door stayed locked and I always had to use my key. The free wireless worked ok, unless someone else was online downloading a large file and slowing the whole system. It could use some speed, but worked best in off peak times. Hey, it was free.
I did not eat there, but did not expect to. Hotel is within quick walking distance of The Vista. Great location to walk to from this hoel. You won't find a more affordable hotel anywhere in this area. The beds were OK, the showers were great. I did not have a fridge, wish I did but did not expect one. There is a place to have a cheap breakfast a block down at Drakes Duck In. Try it.
No problems with the TV, several channels, the usual ones you expect-ESPN, TWC, local channels.
I saw nothing "scary" or any problem people that would not be in any other part of downtown. Columbia needs to run those people off for everyone's sake.
I will return. It was nothing special and I got what I paid for. Nothing more and nothing less.
