After our experience this weekend, I went back and read the reviews. I am mystified that anyone could give this hotel more than possibly two stars. I'll explain. We had reservations at this hotel for two nights this weekend. We were traveling with another party, and we had four rooms between us. Two of those rooms would not open with... More

This hotel is very clean and comfortable. The rooms are nice size and they are pet friendly. There is a nice place to walk your dogs in the back. The breakfast is excellent with eggs (real ones!), bacon, sausage, grits, biscuits and gravy. Everything was hot and fresh. Close to all the restaurants.

We stayed one night to see our grandsons soccer game. Our room was spacious with a king bed. The bed was comfortable and had refrig, microwave and coffee pot. Maintenance was average. The "hot" breakfast was better than most. The hotel also had a well equipped workout room.

My wife and I stayed at the White Columns Inn for 5 nights while visiting family. The lobby shown on the Web site shows very well. It is an older Inn and is a bit outdated. The rooms are showing wear. And while it is conveniently located it could use a makeover. However, the price made it acceptable.
