3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2010

I arrived on October 25, 2010 and the indoor pool wa not working. I asked about it and they said they were waiting on a part. I stayed until November 4, 2010 before it was fixed. I don't know how long it was brokedn before I got there.

This hotel seems new or newly remodeled. Very modern style, like sleeping in a IKEA. I've stayed in SpringHills like this one before except for one weird difference. In our room, the bathroom was separated into two rooms. One room had the toilet and a tiny sink behind a frosted glass sliding door at the foot of the bed. Very weird and not at all private, as the door doesn't close all the way or reach the floor. Then right next to it behind another sliding door is the shower stall and another sink. Why didn't they eliminate one of the sinks and put it all in one room like a normal hotel? It was just strange and offered no privacy. Also, I could hear every car driving by and every kid running down the halls through the paper-thin walls. I wouldn't stay here again.

I loved this hotel! Big and clean rooms with refrigerator and microwave, great location (there's a Publix super market close to the building) ans AWESOME staff! I felt like they were my friends. If you're going to Columbia, SC springhill downtown might be a perfect choice.

I recently visited Columbia to take my daughters (ages 12 and 9) to see Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood on back to back nights at the Colonial Life Arena. We choose this hotel because it was relatively new, conveniently located and reasonably priced. We were not disappointed.

The hotel was at full occupancy because of the concerts and other activities occuring in Columbia during our weekend stay. Even so, the staff managed the situation well. We weren't disturbed at all by noise and found the place to be quite comfortable. The breakfast offered each day was a bit crowded but they never ran out of food or tables.

The rooms were modern but tastefully decorated and very clean. There was a large flat screen television, a comfortable sofa and the bathrooms were separated (shower & sink in one room, toilet & small sink in another room). This design worked out great for us.

One of the front desk staff actually went out of his way to drive us to the Taylor Swift concert. He did this after the first cab he called drove off before we could get into the car. He tried to call another cab but they were slow to respond. So....he loaded us up and dropped us at the front steps of the arena. He wouldn't accept payment of any kind and that experience alone sold me on this hotel. I would certainly return again and highly recommend it after our stay!

One of the most restful, quiet hotels. Tranquil colors and decor inspire rest. Great value . Best of all, is location for walking to many terrific area restaurants. Friendly front desk staff filled our request for a quiet room. Bed was heavenly to sleep in. Room and facilities spotlessly clean. The only reason I can't give five star for room & sleep quality- fan in room was very loud (rattled with annoying vibrations) for sleeping.

This is the 2nd time I've stayed at this hotel in the last few months and I will definitely stay again. Nice, clean rooms. Modern decor. Lobby was great, we sat and watched a little tv in front on the warm fireplace. Very comfortable beds. Love the shower and separate toilet area. Microwave and refrigerator in each room. Great breakfast. Not a huge room to be called a suite, but suited my family fine. Check in was a breeze, staff was always pleasant and location is great for anything downtown but not far from 126 or 26 if you need to get to other places in Columbia. Very nice and highly recommended!
