At check in the staff was very friendly and helpful. The king suite was spacious and clean. The bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was better than most similar hotels. There was a nice selection and variety, especially liked the hot cinnamon rolls. Our only complaint was the noise from several nearby rooms that had children that were traveling together...

After traveling from Atlanta to Charleston and then from Charleston to Columbia, we were exhausted. We were greeted by a very nice gentleman behind the counter. The room was nice, the hotel was clean and the staff were awesome. The only bad thing is that we asked for a good barbecue restaurant and they recommended Dickeys on Two Notch Rd,...

We travel a lot and are gold members of HIC so customer service is super important. When we checked in last night Bernard was overly nice and super accommodating. Went above and beyond and was super kind. Thank you Bernard. In the morning I stopped for breakfast as I always do and due to dietary restrictions I can only eat...

My wife and I stayed here for 2 days during son's graduation from Fort Jackson. The staff was friendly, the room was updated and the breakfast room attendant was the friendliest and most helpful I have experienced at any HIE! The room was good size, bed comfortable, and had a kitchenette. The only thing I would have liked is larger...

We visit Columbia several times a year...this will our "go to place". Beautiful rooms, great breakfast, and an accommodating staff. Much better than the usual HIE. Good area with lots of places to eat- the hotel even provided a list with summaries of fare..a nice touch for the weary traveler. Thanks so much for a great stay!!!

My husband and I stayed just 1 night because we were in town attending a wedding. Alex and the entire staff here were very helpful and understanding as there was major flooding taking place during our stay. The free breakfast was tasty and plentiful. The room was clean with a good sized refrigerator and microwave. A very pleasant experience there!

We have spent nights in more upscale hotels, but this place competes with them all with the "down home" courtesy, politeness and professionalism. The front desk clerks, Olena, David and Bernard were very friendly and helpful. The room was very spacious, very clean and comfortable. It also had all the amenities that the larger hotels make you pay nightly for....

Not a " cookie cutter " appearance inside or out , with different and pleasing accessories ( like the figurines outside the spacious breakfast room ). Great location too, just off I -20, but in a quiet locale. Just up the road ( but across the street) , is the yummy Maurice's Piggy Park. Check in was a breeze by...
