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...

Having two years of experience in a hotel in Cincinnati, OH--- and being a college major in Hospitality Management--- I know the difference in a well maintained hotel and a dump. This place was, without a single doubt, a dump. I had reserved two rooms for my family--- we were coming from Ohio to South Carolina for my older sister's...

I stayed with a small group in 5 rooms while in Columbia for a class for 2 nights. Upon arriving, the boy at the desk was very helpful and friendly. Lobby seemed clean and so did the pool area. This is an older hotel so don't expect all the bells and whistles especially for the price. The parking garage was...

I have been in law enforcement for over 26 years and worked narcotics a large percentage of that time. This hotel was the nastiest I have ever been in. We checked in and checked out within 10 minutes. The bed was beyond description. The bed skirt was covered with stains and debris. I could go on. The smell of the...

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...

I booked this hotel back in March for a Men's Conference located at the Colonial Center in downtown Columbia. I stayed there August 3rd and the hotel was sold out. I knew this might possibility be a dump, but wanted something cheap and within walking distance to the Center (it was about 5 blocks away). I guess I get what...
