Reviewed 17 October 2010

Meeting up with relatives; rented one "suite" and one room, Two adults and one toddler in one room, two adults and two toddlers in the other. The "suite" was just a room with a cheap convertable bed (the two-inch matress type) on the other side of a half-wall. The bed was comfortable enough, but the pillows and linens were cheap and shabby. There were no blankets; just a sheet and worn bedspread. Television was the older model; the A/C unit was the older model, not very effective, but very noisy. I went to the lobby to get blankets, and was told there were none,but I could have a bedspread or a matress-pad. There were no toiletries in the bath except for soap and shampoo, and the towels were old and scratchy. There was no A/C in the lobby or the hallways. There was a free breakfast, and it offered a nice variety of the usual: boxed cereal, hot waffles, fruit, etc.. The manager was accomodating, and gave us adjoining rooms, and she allowed us to check into quite early in the morning. There are no accomadations for children; no cribs, no cots. I would not stay there again or reccomend this hotel to anyone. There are plenty of other hotels in the area for the same price.

This hotel is not in the scenic part of town and frankly, you could get closer to many of the attractions of Columbia. But you wouldn't get such a great bargain. We had a nice time at this place. It was very, very quiet, although from what I could see it was starting to fill up for parents' weekend at USC. The breakfast was just fine - the waffles were delicious. The room was immaculately clean, though I thought the furniture a bit dated. When we asked for the maid to forgo a cleaning and just leave towels and coffee, she did. The bed was comfortable; the pillows were fine. The internet is iffy but free and there is a terminal in the lobby for everyone to use. There are in-room AC units that are loud but we sleep with it off anyway. We had business at USC and this is a bit of a haul, especially during what is a thick rush hour. But it's convenient to a couple of freeways as well as the zoo. And if you like bowling, it's right next door!

Our Grandson's baseball team made it to the World Series held in Lexington, SC. Our Team chose The Best Western Executive Inn & Suites in Columbia, SC for our team and families. When we arrived, there was a large sign welcoming us all. Check-in was quick and effiecient, the rooms were wonderful. They were large and clean and stocked with clean towels, soap, shampoo and coffee. Everyone was very friendly and there to accomodate us. I am not a morning person so I never experienced the continental breakfast but was told by my Step-daughter that it was great. All the kids on the team loved it. I did love the coffee that was available all day. The staff held a pizza party for our team and coaches which was great. They displayed action pictures of the team in the lobby and made sure the lobby was comfortable for us all. Housekeeping did and excellent job keeping all our rooms cleaned and stocked.

Our stay here was well worth the rate. When the weather was hot, there was a pool for us to use. There's also a small fitness center on the premises. An ample continental was included and was always fresh.

The 2 best things were the management and the facilities. Management was always very responsive to our needs and issues and always with the utmost courtesy and a sincere smile. The room, as well as the common areas, looked newly renovated and extremely clean and fresh smelling.

We definitely would return again.
