This hotel is right off I-26 and easy to get in and out of the exit and on to downtown.
We were there on the Memorial day weekend when it was quite empty. We found the front desk welcoming. The whole staff were cheerful and helpful to the guests unlike some hotels I stayed where they seemed grumpy. All rooms were suites and hence quite large. The bed was comfy. My wife loved the fact that every room had a microwave and we could heat our food easily.
The breakfast was quite good. Fresh coffee was available in the lobby throughout the day.
It had a nice swimming pool that my wife and daughter enjoyed. And a hot tub too. There is an outdoor patio in the rear that we could sit and have some nice wine / beer (from the Walmart and Sam's Club just behind the hotel that one could walk within a minute).
The hotel is in the final stages of renovation and the only evidence we saw was in the elevator. This is a good place to stay if you are in Columbia for a few days.More
