“Horrible rooms & service!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

I will never stay at this motel again! Room was dirty, things were broken, & staff was incredibly rude to my family, including my children. Continental breakfast was a joke. Do yourself a favor & find someplace else. Anyplace else!

Never showed up at a hotel to be locked out and have to stand outside to wait for the staff to wake up to come let us check in. Horrible customer service. When it was time to check out we had to wait for them to wake up once again to check us out. There was never anyone at the desk. Also we had to kill a roach as soon as we got in the room. The only good thing about the place was the bed was comfortable.

The rooms were clean and the Staff were pleasant. The price was right but don't expect a mini Fridge in the room. The free breakfast was strictly Continental with no frills.

The room was nasty. Carpet was so dirty your feet were black if you walked on it
without shoes. Air conditioner sounded like a freight train was coming through.
Luckily, we only stayed one night as we were heading to N. Myrtle Beach.
The "breakfast" was a stale muffin and bitter coffee. UGH!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2009

There is no closer hotel: it is one block away. The door to the rooms face outside. The rooms were clean, but not spotless. Lots of locks on the doors, and I used them. I did not feel scared from predators, more scared of the bugs I saw crawling outside on the porch. There was a hole in the floor and they were playing in my room when I entered, but scattered out and stayed out while I was staying there. The bathroom floor, behind the door, had not been swept. Parking is underground, which is nice and they let you keep the vehicle there the next day, even after check out. Breakfast was nice and they were friendly and accomodating with the pastries. Pool is outdoor and seasonal.

I usually trust the Choice Hotels brands. In this case I was horribly wrong. The room was in need of a renovation. Peeling paint, areas of "touch up" paint in a different color. Mold in the bathroom, the towel bar was broken, tile was in very poor and disgusting shape. When I woke up, I had red marks on my body from where the springs on the mattress were.

We stayed here for the LSU vs South Carolina game and found the place very helpful,it is downtown Columbia.We walked everywhere even to the game(2 miles away).We had the King suite which is actually 2 rooms(rooms 514&515).It has a living room with a bathroom seperate from the bedroom which has a king bed with a Jacuzzi tub in the room and a 2nd bathroom.So people stop complaining at least I did not pay $200.00 a nite.Plus the parking is free.
