We upgraded our room to a suite with balcony. I am super picky about my hotel rooms. I just loved this place. Everything about it. No pool though. Staff is wonderful.

We live in Columbia and were looking for a special place to spend a romantic evening out for our anniversary. The Inn at USC was the perfect place! We had a king suite with a balcony. Room was large and very clean. Bathroom was huge with a seperate tub and shower. We loved sitting on the balcony after dinner. Landscaping was very pretty. Even though it is in the area of the university, there was very little traffic around the hotel and it was quiet. Parking was very convenient and the staff seemed nice. The breakfast buffett was very good. Only complaint is that I wish their website gave better discriptions of the rooms available. They have several different types of speciality suites, but give no info or pictures about them. Maybe we would have booked one of those rooms if we had some sort of info about them.

The Inn is a unique hotel in Columbia, SC on the campus of the University of South Carolina. You can't beat the convenient location, the overall quality, and the amenities. If you're looking for a place to stay in Columbia, be sure to consider the Inn. Many other hotels in the area charge extra for parking and for breakfast. At the Inn, you get great parking and a delicious, cooked-to-order breakfast with your room. Part of the Inn is a historic home that's been beautifully renovated; the rest of the hotel is new construction (opened summer 2005) built to match the quality of the original house. Staff is wonderful and very responsive to any requests. We've stayed at the Inn many times, beginning just after it opened, and every experience has been great. We find it gets better and better all the time. Rooms are very tastefully decorated and the beds quite comfortable. You'll love the front porch with rocking chairs and the terrace areas.

Room Tip: Look for specials on the Inn's website.

We stayed at the Inn at USC while visiting the University of South Carolina with our son. The location was fantastic, right across from campus. The staff was friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the comfortable and beautifully decorated sitting area in the lobby. We will definitely return to the inn.

We were attending a wedding and most out of town guests stayed here. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Only major issue was that our room was not cleaned on Saturday. Called front desk around 3 and she seemed cold to my complaint. We have a 2 year old who was going down for a nap and when housekeeping did arrive, all they could do was change out towels as they could not wait until the kiddo got up from his nap. If a room is not cleaned by 3pm, something is odd about that.

I spoke to the front desk staff member later that night and she said she would let the manager know-never heard anything about this. The property is pretty well kept. Carpets, moulding, etc. is showing some wear, but this ain't the Four Seasons so don't have high expectations. Great location on the campus.

Other than the room not being cleaned, I would stay here again.

Thank you so much for your comments concerning your stay at our hotel. Our housekeeping staff is usually here until 5pm most days. Although we try to get to all of them early, on busy days there are rooms that we may not get to until after 3pm. I hope that when you're visiting Columbia that you'll stay at the Inn at USC again.

The desk clerk apologized for the evening cookies crumbling. She explained they were too hot, just out of the oven. That is an indication of the concern of the staff for making sure guests are comfortable. I consistantly found hotel employees well-trained and competent, but above all happy to be of service. That was true from the room maid who wanted to be sure she would not inconvenience me, to the cook who checked twice about what I would like in my omlette. The free breakfast is indeed as good and extensive (eggs, cereal, fruit including the freshest berries, toast, pancakes, hash, potatoes, and on and on) as other reviews have said.

The public spaces in the hotel were clean and the furnishings seemed new. Rugs, curtains and so forth were in excellent condition. My room was up to date (it even had a microwave) and the bathroom sparkled. I have only two negative observations to make, both minor. The wireless Internet connection was slow during the working day, but when I tried it once in the early morning the speed was satisfactory. The second is really pickey, but the hotel provides each room with a listing of TV stations. This list should identify ETV as the PBS station for out-of-town visitors. A quick call to the front desk straightened this out for me, so I am not sure of how much of a complaint it is, but it is something that I believe could be better in this friendly and well-run hotel.

I had a room with a king size bed. The room was clean and extremely comfortable. Included in the room were a refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker. Though my coffee maker was broken. The inn is right alongside the USC campus. I was there at the slow season, so it was very quiet and peaceful. The Inn offers champagne, snacks and cash bar in the evenings. The staff was amazingly hospitable and the inn itself is just beautiful.
