Nice property plenty of parking. On issue is road noise

Great stay!

Was very clean and comfortable beds. Good size rooms. Close walking distance to restaurants and grocery store. Staff was very friendly.

Very friendly and helpful staff. No hot/cooked breakfast.

The place was excellent and very clean. Nice staff

The hotel definitely exceeded my expectations. It was very nice, clean, rooms were modern and updated. Would totally stay here again anytime!

The staff was extremely helpful and always had a smile for the guests. The breakfast bar was great, the attendant kept everything clean and stocked. Our room was clean and neat.

The worst hotel bed we have ever experienced! We woke up sore from where the springs were poking us. Rooms are oddly shaped and the bathroom doors do not close completely and are opaque glass. It would be fine for a single person but as a family it was awkward. You can hear and see the outline of everyhing happening in the bathroom. The breakfast was good, staff was excellent, pool was the smallest I have ever seen at a hotel.

Walkable to cool area with bars and restaurants. Very clean and new feeling decent breakfast set up. Kids and parents both enjoyed the stay.

My family and I really enjoyed our stay. We will definitely stay again!!!

The hotel is in the Vista area of Columbia and very close to USC's campus (not walking distance for most people, but a quick easy drive). Clean rooms and good breakfast (included in room price) were some of the best features. We had a great visit and this was a good location to stay for a reasonable price.

This was our 3rd stay at this hotel for a swim meet. Check in is always quick and easy; rooms are spacious; breakfast was hot and ready before the regular time, which was great for all the swimmers at the hotel. Cons: nowhere to hang towels in the bathroom; rooms aren't very soundproof--we could hear doors banging on our hall all night; they have the old school air conditioners that click on and off all night--no option to just let the fan run.

I had no issues with the room; however, when I was checking in I was told that not only do they have a Mastercard on file (I do not own a Mastercard), but they were showing that I had not already paid. Luckily I printed the receipt and brought it with me because I can't afford to pay twice! It worked out fine, but it worries me for future use of a traveling site rather than making the reservation directly with the hotel.

Pleasantly surprised how clean and new the hotel is. We were driving through en route to Charleston and wanted a cheap but decent hotel in Columbia for the night that was close to some good restaurants. Ultimately this hotel is sort of in the corner of the Vista, but the big free parking lot made it well worth it. Even going to dinner in Five Points was a breeze. If we went back to Columbia, we'd probably stay here again.

We wanted to see the historic area of Columbia and this motel was within walking distance. The staff was very friendly and made excellent recommendations regarding places to eat and things to do. Wish they had a hot tub/whirlpool.

We've stayed a number of times here, and the location is perfect when visiting our son at school. Easy access to the Vista for entertainment, and only a short distance to campus.

I have stayed at this hotel many times in the past....I usually love my stay here...I love the decor...and the beautiful open lobby....however, this stay was unusually disappointing. There were 2 large groups staying at the hotel....people were congregated in the lobby, talking so loudly that I could barely hear to check in....water from the swimming pool was everywhere...in the lobby...hallways...and elevators....Finally, when I arrived in my room it had an odor and the toilet would not flush properly....Again, I'm usually a fan of this hotel....but this stay was very disappointing.
