“Do not ever ever ever stay in this hotel...”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 November 2009

I write this review with mixed feelings because the staff (owner/operators?) were nice and attentive. They even let us switch our rooms initially... But the hotel overall, and specifically the rooms, can best be described as disgusting...

We were in Columbia to see a college football game at the stadium and the hotel's location is great. A short walk to the stadium...

But the room. Floating cigarette buts in the bathroom sink. An musty odor that has me debating whether to burn my clothes. Assorted stains on just about every wall or surface. A "clean" towel with a giant brown stain in the middle. And the shower curtain. The inside of the white shower curtain was near-black with mold and mildew. I expect to have recurring nightmares of the shower curtain, possible requiring therapy...

Any option in Columbia is a better option than The Hearth...

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2008

We found this hotel through the magazines at the Welcome Station. The price was inexpensive, but I would have rather spent a little more for better accomodations. It was near to where we were going in Columbia and actually drove by a couple other places and decided not to stop at those.

The lobby was small but looked OK. The clerk was friendly and efficient.

Our room was another story... It was just plain tired. The furniture was all banged up. The curtain didn't have hang properly so there was lamp light all night long. The air conditioner was quite loud when it turned on. We needed the "white noise" because of the busy street and the hotel is in the flight path. The bathroom light wasn't very bright and the shade was burned- not very attractive. The beds were full-sized. One bed had very thick pillows which were great if you wanted to sit up in bed. Light came in under the door because it didn't seal well.

We were the only ones in the breakfast room at 8:00 which we found odd since the hotel was supposedly fully booked. The breakfast was usual fare for a small operation. We found enough.

I wouldn't stay here again.

  • Liked — Close to where we needed to go
  • Disliked — Room appearance, flight path and busy street (noisy)
