“Not very clean”
Reviewed 1 December 2011

This is an older property which claims to have been refurbished. I did not find the rooms clean - shower curtain was dirty, slip mat in bathtub was not clean, etc. This property is rated 3 stars through AAA, but I definitely disagree. Just wanted to share what we found.

I was in Columbia for business a week long trip. The carpet had just finish being clean so it was wet. They say hot breakfast but its just oatmeal and waffels that are hot. Everything else is cold. Covers were dirty and sheets were questionable. I wont stay here again for $85 a night and that was at a discount price. It Should be $50 a night.

Not too far from where my husband needed to go. VA hospital was super close. Directions were super easy. Front desk was nice and spoke multiple languages, which i thought was awsm. Enjoyed the indoor heated pool and hot tub, since my husband has a bad knee. Will come and stay again.

I checked in with the other guys that are on assignment with me and we noticed that the sheets were dirty in our room. They gave us new sheets to put on the beds. I told the young man we are not making our own beds I want a new room. They moved us and then I noticed that there was a dirty tub, a half used roll of toilet paper and no replacement roll, sticky substance, like someone spilled juice on the night table. We were so tired we just decided to stay. I went back down to the front desk to get some more towels because ther was only one set in the room and no wash clothes, and there was a man at the front desk going off about bed bugs! He said that he had been bitten all over his head (he was bald, you could see the bite marks on his head and neck) and all over his body and he was pissed off. i asked the front desk clerk if we checked out could we get our money back, and I was told no because we had already been in the room too long. So we loadded all of our stuff up and took it to the trucks so we wouldnt bring any bed bugs home with us and stayed until check out. When the girl in our office booked the rooms, she booked them there because they DID NOT ACCEPT PETS and Pete is allergic to dogs. So we are walking to the vending machine and we see a woman walking 2 little dogs on a leashdown the hall. I asked her if she was staying here and about the dogs, and she said they knew she had the dogs and it was okay. So they lied about not accepting pets. When we were leaving, a lady was asking her boyfriend or husband what bedbugfs looked like because she was pretty sure she saw 2 on the pillow.

SO BOTTOM LINE: THEY HAVE DIRTY SHEETS AND BEDBUGS AND THEY SAY THEY DONT ACCEPT PETS BUT THEY WILLL TO GET THE MONEY!

Reviewed 20 July 2010

We stopped overnight on our way back to Florida, and chose this hotel because of the discount we clipped from a travel magazine. The room was $69 per night, and was a good value for the convenience. The staff was courteous and readilly accepted the coupon (unlike the hotel next door).
When we entered the first room, we immediately discovered a strong smell of smoke even though it was supposed to be a non-smoking room (302). We were given another room immediately after our request, and it did not have the same problem (312).
After spending a few hours winding down from a long ride, we began to notice that the room could use a bit more attention by the cleaning and maintenance workers. Mostly it was in the form of wall smudges, cracked furniture, and carpet stains. The beds and bath were clean, so there was no immediate concern.
Overall, I would say in the day and age this is the type of accomodation you can expect for a cost of under $70. A clean place to lay your head, and tub without mold to shower in. Worked for me.
