This La Quinta is located just off I-77. Even though close to the interstate, the rooms are surprisingly quiet. The hotel is currently undergoing renovations, which is good, because it is needed. The staff was friendly and efficient. The complimentary breakfast is about average.

Have stayed at this LaQuinta several times and it is one of our top picks when staying in Columbia. Convenient to downtown Columbia and pet friendly. If you're looking for a comfortable quiet place and not interested in staying in downtown Columbia, highly recommend this hotel.

I had to go to Columbia recently for a tax seminar. Unfortunately, many of the "better" hotels downtown were either booked, or had their rates doubled for some unknown reason. After searching for a bit I came by this hotel. It was a little bit further down Garners Ferry than I would like - but it was not terribly bad....

The staff here were friendly and very "up" at every turn. Now,this hotel is a very old building. The décor has not been updated. The rooms are okay but just not nice. The bed was over all very comfortable. The bathroom was 6 FT X5 Ft and the sink was outside in the entrance to the room. The toilet was...

The staff was very accommodating for an early check in. Room was clean and bed was comfortable! That is what is important to us. Great location for a SC football game. Will definitely stay again. Thank you!

We stay at this La Quinta Inn about once a month. It is economical and very nice. It is moderately priced and a good value. The property is a bit dated, but the staff are excellent. We are able to get promotional rates that make staying here a very good value.

This was our first time at this property, but it came highly recommended by a friend. We were not disappointed. The accomodations and the breakfast were both equal to any offered by a higher-priced competitor in the same area. Will gladly stay here again.

La Quinta's are always reliable as was this one. Easy to get to off the highway. There was no real area for a dog although there were poop bags (thanks). Everyone was friendly and helpful. Would stay here again.

We were hurricane Matthew evacuees. All of the employees at the hotel made our visit very enjoyable and much less stressful than it could have been. We would stay at this hotel again when in Columbia and would highly recommend it to anyone traveling in the area.

Room was relatively clean (could have vacuumed better around the edges) and the bed was comfortable. Bathroom was clean. Front desk personnel were friendly and efficient. However, the mildew smell in the room and halls and the high whine of the mini-fridge need to be corrected. The hotel is nothing fancy, but adequate.
