We were on a long, multi-day drive returning from our summer vacation, and We could tell Columbia was going to be the best stopping point the following evening. A little searching led me to select Claussen's, in part because it looked like a break from the roadside chains and in part because of the opportunity it afforded to see a bit of Columbia. It turned out to be a fantastic choice. Everyone we interacted with was helpful, from making reservations, to Allison helping us find a great place to eat in walking distance, to Allison again treating us to our evening glass of wine, to the included room delivered breakfast.
We were traveling with four kids, so we actually had two rooms. Both were very clean, more upscale than the standard fare, and roomier than an average hotel room. We travel a fair amount and stay in wide variety of hotels, and kids and the adults were enthused by this place. Mama and Dada liked that we could put the kids down and then enjoy our glasses of wine directly outside our rooms in the lobby/lounge. We didn't make great use of it, but we also liked the set up of the connected porches out back of the first floor rooms.
Yes, there is rail line out the back end of the hotel, but it was not a problem for any of the six of us. We liked it, actually.
