We only stayed 1 night but the place is very clean. Nice place to stay. Everyone we saw was very nice. Will probably stay right here every trip to Columbia. The breakfast bar is very well stocked to be so small.

Yes, there is a social hour but it is very very limited 2 glasses of lite beer pre-poured for you. And some pretzels. And it's Mon - Thursday. Hope this helps. I skipped it and went to Gervais Street instead.
