    « Will be back when in area »

    Have stayed her several times and will continue to return when I am in the area. Good location. Good eats in area and the staff is awesome. Would be a plus if they offered smoking rooms but I will return even though they don't.

    « Great Location »

    We stayed one night. The hotel is small but convenient. It is clean and the staff is very friendly. It is located just a few blocks from I-26. The breakfast is your typical fare. We would stay here again when in Columbia.

    « Excellent location and service »

    Always look for a BestWestern wherever I go. And always recommend to family and friends. Rooms are always clean and neat. Breakfast has a variety of choices, You never go wrong selecting BestWestern to stay for family or business trip.

    « Comfortable place to stay the night »

    We were on a driving vacation where we were staying only one night at each location. Best Western is our motel of choice for its consistent quality and value. We did not get to use many of the amenities, but the Wi Fi worked well, the beds comfortable, and the breakfast had good choices. We were very satisfied.

    « Very nice place! »

    We really liked this hotel. Very modern, very well-kept. The room was spacious, we had a king size bed. It was comfortable, quiet, and felt safe. The inclusive breakfast was good, but we are northerners and not fond of biscuits and gravy. We ate elsewhere. We come through here every year and we plan to stay here again.

    « Good stop on our way to Florida »

    We spent one night there on our way to Florida and it was very conveniently located and had a nice surrounding area. Very good hotel for the price. Definitely would stay again in the future and would recommend it.

    « Stayed 2 Nights! »

    Stayed 2 Nights! Had a good stay! Clean and comfortable. Spacious rooms. Breakfast was available with a variety to choose from. A couple of restaurants within walking distance. Easy in and out; plenty of parking.

    « NICE! »

    Stayed one night on road trip. Friendly courteous staff. Hotel clean and well maintained. Very affordable! Breakfast was not huge but adequate. Really good orange juice. Good biscuits with sausage gravy.

    « Hurricane Home »

    Due to hurricane Matthew we evacuated our beach condo in Garden City, SC. Being a regular Best Western customer I chose this property. The entire South Eastern coast was under mandatory evacuation. The management at this hotel went far out of their way to make a full hotel of people comfortable. From the front desk, the room attendants, the breakfast room people, even the front desk, made everyone feel special. Imagine, not knowing what you are going home to or when. We were made to feel that the people who managed this hotel cared.

    « Good Overnight Stay »

    Stopped for the night. Easy access off the highway and super fast check in. Very friendly desk clerks. No frills lodging with free continental breakfast which was the usual fare. It was okay for an overnight stay. No issues.

    « Will be back when in area »

    I have stayed here couple times and will be back when in area. They were sold out due to the coastal evacuations with the hurricane "Matthew" coming in but still kept everybody happy. I will be back here for sure when I am in the area.

    « Taking a licensing exam »

    The Motel was less than a mile form the exam site. For the intended purpose of my trip, the room was quiet and comfortable, and the service was exemplary. The only disappointment was the hair dryer. I'd suggest you bring your own.

    « Parent's Weekend Stay at USC »

    This property was clean and our room was ready when promised. Overall this facility would fall into the basic lodging category (no lounge or food service outside of free breakfast). Public areas and hallways were clean as was our room. This was a college football weekend, but sound & excessive noise were never an issue. The staff was very friendly. While there are not many amenities within walking distance, it is conveniently positioned just off of the I 20 & I 126 intersections. Downtown Columbia & the USC campus is less than 15 minutes away. The above mentioned breakfast was fairly basic, but for this hotel class and price point, this property offers EXCEPTIONAL value. I participate in many other upscale hotel rewards programs, but would not hesitate to stay at this facility again due to its overall value.

    « Graduation/Family Day »

    The professional service and the locale of your hotel fit exactly what I needed. I was very pleased and accommodated for the cost of my stay. I will consider Best Western Hotels & Resorts first in future travels.

    « Pleasant surprise »

    Who would think a reasonably priced hotel would offer free breakfast service and have comfy beds AND have great service to boot? What a gem this hotel is -- easy to get to, very good security, friendly staff (the woman who checked me in remembered me from a visit a month ago!), and a clean, comfy room. Need to stay in Columbia? You can't go wrong here. Really good value.

    « Very satisfied customer of Best Western »

    Very satisfied customer. Will recommend to people I know who are visiting Columbia, South Carolina. Grounds are well manicured, parking is very good, rooms quiet, hall way clean and presentable. Location is close to retailers, restaurants and major roadways leading to Atlanta, Agusta, Charleston and other cities near and far.

    « Double billed »

    I stayed in this hotel the middle of August. The room was prepaid. I showed them the prepaid receipt and they wanted a credit card on file so I gave them a different card. They charged both cards and when I called they denied that they did it even though I tried to fax them copies of the card statements. I just filed a dispute and let them fight it out. The girl who took took the cal obviously could care less.

    « Not as clean »

    Was disappointed in the quality of the room and the breakfast area. One of the staff members was really creepy. Check for mold/mildew and working irons. I was able to get a room switched the next day, but it would have been nice if the night attendant could have moved me.

    « Just ok »

    We got in at 11:45pm. We had been driving for 7 hours and very tired. The gal at the front desk was not friendly. I was not sure where to put the luggage cart. She made a point to let me know that it did not go by the front door like most hotels. The breakfast was less than average. We did not eat the breakfast. Room was ok

    « Vacations for the first time »

    I will be back if I'm in the area, friendly staff clean rooms good variety of breakfast and they their always looking if you need anything or if need to refill milk, when you come back to you room like we did after a long day with kids, the lady at front desk skyway always smile. I like this place.

    « Stop over on FL to TN road trip »

    We stayed here in the middle of July for just one night. The hotel is older and in need of some repairs. We had two rooms and both the doors were hung slightly crooked and we could see outside the room into the interior hallway. The fountain in front of the hotel had a knife in the water at bottom of fountain. It was a little unnerving. As a positive, the staff we encountered in the evening check in and at breakfast in the morning were great.

    « Will be back when in this area »

    First time at this location. Was a pleasant stay. Price was good also. Will be back for sure when in this area. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Several good places to eat in this area also. Wish they had smoking rooms though.

    « Overnight visit »

    Was in the area visiting colleges with my family and stayed just 1 night . Room was very clean, hot component of breakfast consisted of waffles and eggs. The staff was extremely courteous and promptly filled breakfast items

    « Nice place to stay »

    Very nice place to stay. Rooms were a good size and the staff was great! The beds were comfortable. They had a variety of things to eat at breakfast. It was very quiet. It was very convenient to where I had my conference. Will definitely stay again.

    « Clean, good value stay »

    Hotel staff all very friendly and helpful, clean room, some room updates, furniture a little dated but over all clean and comfortable, very comfortable mattress, typical breakfast options, food fresh and clean. Very good value for the price and comparable hotels.

    « We Liked It »

    It's not in the ~best part of town however, the staff was great, helpful and always accommodating. Check in was real fast. We needed a room on the first floor and we were given one. The room was clean and my wife commented on the nice smell. The bathroom was clean. My wife was happy to find out that an Indian restaurant was next door. Our son loved the pool. It was well kept and ready for our young'in to splash. The breakfast was good and complete with everything you might want to eat. We would probably stay here again.

    « clean and pleasant stay »

    Clean and plesant stay. Staff was professional and efficient. I liked the express checkout. Room was clean and well appointed. A goodnights sleep and on my way. Good location off highway. I like the newer furnishings and the use of two sheet cover which can be wash vice the older quilted coverings.

    « First time here...good room »

    Everything turned out alright here for my stay. Had a toilet not flush issue that they came and fixed. Room was very good. Breakfast area is a little cramped. Selection was fair. I would stay here again if price was right. Easy location to USC area

    « Clean and comfortable »

    We were there one night, very happy with how friendly the staff was and how clean the property and room were kept. Sleep like a baby and in the morning had a good breakfast to get us started they had a great selection waffles, fresh fruit, biscuits and gravy and much more.

    « False detail information on web page. »

    I was actually told by the front desk clerk (A self proposed Language Specialist, she took it in college), and then by the manager, and reinforced by the customer service at Best Western Customer Service, that the Title of the room was an error in interpretation om my part. The title for the room was "DOUBLE KING SIZE BED-PULL OUT SOFA BED-SUITE." This to me meant that there were two king sized beds and a pull out sofa bed. I was told that they didn't even have any room configurations like that in the hotel. The room had one King Bed and a pull out sofa. The sofa was a small double at best. The room was clean, but we had to ask for more towels and pillows. There were none provided for the sofa bed. The was a miserable start to our first night of our vacation. With children and an aging mother-in-law, we did not have a comfortable stay. I was told by the staff that I could get and additional room, but would have to pay for it. Having been in the hotel business for many years, I did not get any sense of the staff wanting to be accommadating me as a guest. It appeared to me that there were empty rooms in the hotel that evening: an additional room could have offered either complimentary for the misunderstanding or even at the cost rate to use the room.

    « Pleasant Surprise »

    On the way home from St Augustine Florida, Columbia ended up being the exact right place to stop in order to avoid arriving home too tired. Had not tried this Best Western before but recommend it 100%. Everything in good order, the AC rescued us from a long day on the road and the HBO had a movie we had wanted to see but missed. Added bonus was the outstanding Indian food next door!

    « Great stay, clean and comfortable »

    Easy check in and out, clean, quiet, good breakfast bar. Great pool. Free newspaper, vending area clean, good selection, ice machine working good. Will book this stay again this year. Nice restaurants close by.

    « Great value and service »

    Hotel very nice with with wonderful desk attendants. Very convenient to I 26. Easy walk to restaurants. If you like Indian food, the restaurant next door will be a treat. The hotel was a great price quality ratio. Very pleasantly surprised by appearance and quality of room given price range. Would expect to pay 50% more for the quality and location.

    « clean, friendly, comfortable sleep »

    Was very please with my stay, very clean, beds comfortable, quiet but thought a little pricey for a Best Western as it is my usual choice of hotels when traveling...although would use again if in the area...

    « Nice stay »

    This Best Western was very neat & clean. Easy to find & get around from. Plenty of things to do around the area. Not extremely far from downtown, but a little drive. Room was nice, clean & staff was very helpful & pleasant. Would stay again.

    « Good in a pinch »

    We were late in booking a room for our grandchild's graduation so stayed at the Best Western. It was a good choice for meeting my criteria for a budget hotel: clean, quiet and safe. But it wasn't great. It appeared that the building had been recently remodeled which was good but the furnishings seemed to have been bought from some discount wholesaler. They were cheap and misfit for their use. It was like the owner had to fill the spaces with some kind of furniture and didn't want to bother with how it would look. The breakfast was limited, biscuits with gravy and very greasy sausage patties and the usual breads/muffins/cereals and a few pieces of fruit. There were only 4 tables to sit at. I didn't check to see what they had on the second day, we just went elsewhere for breakfast. So, would I recommend it? Just like I say in the title, In a pinch I can stay here but I would check out my other options first.

    « Very helpful staff »

    Jasmine at the front desk was delightful and helpful for this travel weary person. She was able to suggest a large number of great places to eat and was always nice and smiling. I was surprised she worked in the evening and was back in the morning for the breakfast group. I had an allergic reaction in the room, but everything appeared and smelled clean, so I don't know that it was the hotel's fault.

    « Nice spot »

    Awesome service beyond a 4star welcome. Very convenient to highway and other attractions. Room was very clean. Very nice stop when traveling plenty of parking. Front lobby also clean. How could you ever complain about free breakfast. I would definitely stay here again.

    « A good deal »

    Highly recommended. Very friendly and helpful staff. Would recommend it to anyone. Very clean with a good breakfast nothing too fancy but an excellent value for your dollar. Only about 10 minutes from downtown/statehouse area with lots to see and do in the area.

    « Not bad, but... »

    We almost died. I'm not sure if this is a exaggerated statement or not but we laid back in our bed (hard, from a long day) and one inch from our heads was (see image). Other than that it was typical and typical is good. I took away two stars for the death screw. Otherwise 3.5/4 stars.

    « Stayed April 2016 »

    We had a pleasant stay. the staff was friendly and overall the hotel was clean. the first room we checked into smelled like someone had been smoking in it and the air was stale. We asked for another room and was given one right away. Some of the furniture is getting a little worn. The hotel was clean and the breakfast was good.

    « Stayed One Night For The Masters »

    This is a good hotel to stay in if you want to save some money and have an easy commute to the Masters. The hotel is right off the I-20 and it's a straight shot to Augusta, National and at 6something in the morning, no traffic (I stayed on a Tuesday Night). I booked the hotel months in advance and paid a normal rate (About $85 w/tax for a King and about $90 for the double I booked for a friend). The closer to the tournament, the higher the price (I saw it go up to maybe $170ish). Sangita at the front desk was very friendly and helpful but extremely overwhelmed because the hotel was at full capacity. My biggest complaint was the air felt very stale, as if it had smokers at some point. There wasn't too much I could do to alleviate the smell. However, for one night as a place to only sleep before the tournament, it is a good value.

    « Leisure Stay »

    The manager of this hotel was very pleasant and accommodating. The room was clean and comfortable, and the rate was good. Breakfast was fair - not as good as other hotels where we have stayed. We would stay here again when in Columbia, SC. It was convenient to major roads.

    « Good value »

    Not a great location, but safe and a great value for the area. Within a short drive of lots of shopping and restaurants. Large room with a micro fridge. Just as nice as a typical Hampton Inn but at a much lower cost.

    « Great place near Riverbanks Zoo »

    My family spent one night at this location while visiting Riverbanks Zoo. We found the property to be clean and comfortable. The hotel is a little older but is well kept, and It is located less than 3 miles from the zoo. There are several dining places and shopping close by. We didn't use the pool due to it being to cool yet, but it looked clean and inviting.

    « Extremely nice Hotel »

    Stayed at this hotel in early April this year. The hotel was very nice, easy to find and the staff was very hospitable. I checked in the Wednesday before the Masters Golf Tournament started, so we paid a somewhat premium rate, but I would not hesitate to stay there again, and I recommend this hotel to anyone.

    « Great hotel and wonderful staff »

    We stayed at this hotel on our way to our destination and I must say it was a pleasant stay. The manager Sangita was very friendly and very nice. She assisted us and went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed. The rooms were nice and had everything we needed. I really enjoyed the breakfast. They had many options and it was freshly made and kept hot. I will definitely be visiting this hotel again.

    « Needs to be Updated »

    The staff were all friendly and helpful. Stayed here a few nights while we attended the Masters in Augusta, GA. The hotel is only an hour from Augusta. The price was right and the hotel was clean. The breakfast was decent. Our room was extremely small from other Best Westerns we've stayed in, but had everything we needed.

    « Dated »

    Jasmine, the desk clerk was an excellent employee. Late afternoon arrival & when I told her the hot water for tea was lukewarm, she immediately got piping hot water. Additionally, she brewed decaf coffee for my husband. This hotel seemed like an old property that has tried to be spruced up. The breakfast was mediocre and not enough tables and room for all the guests the morning we were there. The room was big enough, not dirty, had a good TV, good bed, WIFI worked fine, but the furniture seemed old and the room just felt dark and dated. Although the lighting was good, it wasn't a room in which we would want to spend a lot of time relaxing. If you are just stopping overnight to get a decent night's sleep ad leaving in the morning, it was fine and no complaints about our stay.

    « Pretty good bang for the buck. »

    Stayed one night during masters weekend and left for course early Sunday morning. The TV in the room was nice sized and was able to catch the 3rd round Saturday before leaving out early Sunday. Average breakfast, but the staff was extremely nice. Great price for the weekend and about 1 hour from Augusta National, which is well worth the drive rather than spending 300+ a night staying somewhere closer.

    « Time for an Update »

    Recently stayed here on a trip to Augusta, GA for the Masters. The hotel is only 50 minutes from Augusta and the price is right. The only problem is it is a bit outdated and in need for an upgrade. Upon entering the room it was awfully hot and stuffy and had that musty smell. Tried to open a window but they don't open. Had to rely on the A/C unit which we did. The breakfast was fair. No eggs, just grits, biscuits and sausage patties for hot food along with the usual bagels and cold cereal. Everyone at the hotel was extremely pleasant as well. With a little paint and some new furniture for the rooms this place would be great.

    « Not totally satisifed »

    Staff were pleasant. Room was OK. Carpet smelled old. Exercise facility was very poor. One bike, one treadmill with a "hitch" in the belt, and one elliptical that creaked constantly. No weights at all. Stairwell door dampener didn't work and constantly slammed when used.

    « Above and beyond »

    Customer Service employee Sangita Patel assisted us with sending and receiving important documents regarding the sale of our home. Our agent did not have access to fax service late in the evening and Sangita used her own cell phone to handle all of the material. She had a most caring and helpful attitude. Five stars for her!

    « Outstanding manager!!!!! »

    The hotel itself is older, but was clean and had comfortable beds. We had a nice sized refrigerator as well as a microwave. The TV was large and flat screened. The temperature was a little tricky to adjust, as the units were older, but we finally got it right. I can't say enough good about the manager........she was incredibly organized, orienting a new employee, replacing coffee carafes, giving us directions as well as helping us decide on a dinner destination. Then the next morning, she was at the elevator when I was pushing the luggage cart down the hall, and she insisted on helping me get it on and off of the elevator. All of this with a big smile on her face! She is worth her weight in gold!!!! The only thing that bothered us a bit was the was higher than usual because it was Master's week.

    « A Decent Place for a One Night Stay »

    My wife and I were on our way to Charleston, but our hotel reservations didn't begin until the next day. There was a pile-up on I-95 the day before, and every hotel we called or stopped at had no vacancy. We turned around and drove all the way back to Columbia; this was one of the craziest experiences we've had traveling. This was the only hotel we could find with vacancy, and we actually got the last available non-smoking room. It was $122 for the night, which is more than we are accustomed to paying for a hotel of this caliber. It was clean, the bed was comfortable and the breakfast was sufficient. It served its purpose for us, but it would have been nice if it were a bit cheaper. It also had an interesting stench that lingered in the hall and in our room.

    « Slippery tub poor internet »

    I found the tub/shower to be very slippery and after spending 3 days on a bus traveling from Southern Idaho to South Carolina, for my son's graduation, a hot shower was top of my list of things to enjoy. Instead of enjoying a hot shower I found myself concerned for my safety as I was worried that I would slip and injure myself and that nobody would know until the morning cleaning lady came. I do not expect to be worried that I am going to fall down and get hurt so many miles from home when I stay at a motel let alone a Best Western this stay was my worst hotel stay in my adult life. I expected much more of a Best Western especially an Executive Inn & Suites. Internet was too slow to Skype, My son wanted to Skype with his sisters after his graduation from Basic Combat Training but the internet was too slow to provide a good connection.

    « Friendly staff and clean rooms »

    My wife and I have stayed at this hotel on a couple of different occasions. Both times were very pleasant experiences. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the rooms were clean. The breakfast area is small, everything was fresh.

    « Good hotel and good breakfast »

    Stayed at this hotel for my wife's cousins wedding. Had a great time, staff was extremely helpful, hotel was clean, food was great in the morning, and the Wi-Fi was fast no complaints here. Great bowling alley next door, also great distance from the airport. Near a lot of great attractions.

    « Stayed for 1 night - OK. Breakfast seating area is small. »

    Good location off the interstate and close to downtown and the zoo. Friendly staff, and clean room. Breakfast area which is adjacent to the lobby is tight for the size of the hotel. There are few restaurants adjacent to the property.

    « Good place to stay »

    If it weren't for Jasmine who works at front counter, I might have left and found a different hotel. Jasmine was faced with an issue and made a decision to fix it and she did. Great work Jasmine. I made being away from home a little better.

    « Comfortable room and superior maid service »

    The hotel is nice, breakfast is just OK and usually needing restocked, coffee generally out unless Jasmine is working in which case no worries the breakfast and coffee will be available. Maid service is truly superior here, probably the best I've ever seen, also they prop doors when cleaning rooms so you don't hear doors slamming constantly every 5 minutes all morning like at many other hotels. Beds were comfortable and noise level was fairly low. The neighborhood was definitely concerning... A trailer with UTV on it was stolen from parking lot the first night we were there. You might plan to drive a ways down the road before choosing where to stop for gas etc. No convenient places to eat, but there is a Walmart close by.

    « Great! »

    I had to change my check-in date due to my meeting time being changed. It was done with ease- will definitely be back! The people were nice and everything was clean. I told my wife we would definitely be back to a Best Western if we ever needed to come back!

    « Leisure Time »

    Spending time with Grand Children is a wonderful benefit for Grand Parents. This trip was just that! This Hotel a offered great balance in price, convenient location, and features. The staff did a great job.

    « Funeral Family Member »

    Great service by staff/ asked if there was anything they could help with. Facility was clean and extra towels were placed in room upon request. Very quiet and centrally located to restaurants and business.

    « Sleep Easy »

    Pulled into the parking lot exhausted, the girl at the front desk could not have been nicer. She put me right at ease, told me how to get to a restaurant for a quick bite, and was just completely sweet. The room was extremely clean, the entire hotel was extremely clean and I had the best night sleep I've had in a very long time , the bed was wonderfully comfortable! It was very quiet there and I felt like my vehicle was very safe in the parking lot. I cannot tell you how important it was to me! The next morning the girl at the desk, a different girl, was also extremely sweet and even offered to help me carry my luggage out to the car! If I am through this way again I will definitely stay here!

    « Hotel Review »

    A pleasant experience. Large room with proper desk and chair. Plenty of outlets. WiFi worked great as did TV. Very nice and comfy. Shower had grab rail. Standard Southern breakfast with biscuits and gravy; not for me, however - no warm eggs or bacon. Area is iffy but right between two interstates and a bowling alley right next door!

    « Columbia Best Western »

    No problems.......Great staff, building, lobby, and amenities. Room was nice and clean. Hotel was close to major roads, as well as gas, food, and stores. I highly recommend and would stay here again if in the area.

    « Quiet overnight stay »

    On our way home from Florida, we stayed at this location. The friendly staff, very clean room, affordable prices, convenient on and off to the interstate made for a very quiet and relaxing night before heading north. There were great restaurant choices nearby for dinner which made the stop a good one for us. Would recommend this one to anyone and we will definitely stay here again.

    « VISIT »

    this was our second stay in the past six weeks. and like our first stay it was an excellent experience. everything that we needed was supplied and all the questions that we asked was answered promptly good job

    « Not up to Best Western standards »

    There were no pictures on the walls. The room had a musty odor and the carpet seemed damp. The breakfast was very minimal and there was very little seating. Some renovations seemed to have been done, but could have been better.

    « Very good as always »

    I always stay at a Best Western if there is one near where I need to be. The beds are among the most comfortable I have found. The front desk lady, Tynasia, was very courteous and helpful, finding all appropriate discounts. The continental breakfast was satisfactory and check out was simple. Highly recommend.....

    « Great Bang for your Buck »

    This BW is just on the edge of Columbia, SC. It is not plush or anything similar, but it is spotlessly clean and the bed was wonderfully comfortable. The breakfast was respectable enough for the very modest room price (under $100 with parking), and it included fresh fruit, cereal - whole and skim milk. I would definitely stay there again b/c I don't like spending huge sums on hotels when I can spend the money on other things. Very nice, friendly and helpful staff. Also - close to many different highways.

    « Poor Plumming »

    Experienced next to no water flow from the bathroom faucet. Later discovered the lack of water pressure was due to the base of the faucet had a major leak and the majority of the water was leaking down the back edge of the vanity and into the floor.

    « Nice Hotel »

    my experience at the Best Western was a good one. They had all the amenities i needed for my business travel and the room was immaculate . I would definitely recommend them to anyone traveling in the Columbia area.

    « Good Experience »

    Bottom line......I'd stay there again. Hotel entrance and room was clean, staff was nice, price was ok. If I were in the Columbia area looking for a room..... I'd go back. I can recommend it, based on my one night stay without hesitation.

    « FEMA Team »

    The hotel personnel were friendly and very helpful during my stay. The beds were comfortable and I appreciated having breakfast waiting for me and I appreciated having WiFi and a printer available.Best Western is one of my "go to" hotels. I was especially impressed with Sangita Patel's knowledge and graciousness.

    « Looking forward to coming back »

    The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel was located very conveniently to the Riverbanks Zoo and is not too far from downtown. The room was clean and the bed, comfortable. My next trip to Columbia, I will most likely stay at this hotel again.

    « Great Place! »

    Stayed three nights during the recent flooding in Columbia, SC. I have stayed here previously and had great experiences each time. The rooms are exceptional - extremely clean and very modern with plenty of outlets for laptop, cell phones, etc. Also has WI-FI,desk, recliner, microwave, refrigerator and plenty of lighting. Staff is great, also. I have no complaints and I'm very particular about my accommodations. An added bonus was the price was substantially less than comparable hotels. My highest rating!

    « Very comfortable »

    It was a nice experience. To feel at home, away from home! We were in Columbia for my cousin's son's graduation at Fort Jackson. My cousin and his wife are both blind and no trouble getting around. Each morning we enjoyed a nice breakfast and it was a nice way to start the day, not having to look for a place.

    « Hotel for Darlington Speedway 2015 »

    We stayed here after the Darlington Race in September 2015. It was the perfect distance from the track to get us halfway home. Clean, quiet, late check in just what we needed after a spectacular race.

    « Nice Place to Stay »

    We stayed one night at the property after the Southern 500 in Darlington. Compared to the rates for hotels closer to the track, we found our rate very inexpensive for only an hour drive from the track. The front desk staff was pleasant as we arrived at 2:30am after a long day of driving from Georgia in the morning and attending the race in the evening. Our room was nice, the refrigerator and microwave were a little dated, but the bed was comfortable and all the TV channels were in HD. You don't find many hotels, even pricier ones, with full HD programming. The hotel also offers free wi-fi in the rooms which was surprisingly strong and fast. We had one minor issue we thought need addressing with the room and the front desk staff member working when we checked out thanked us for notifying her of the issue. Overall, we plan to stay here again for next year's race.

    « Very convenient, clean, quiet and reasonable. »

    We like the consistency of Best Western properties and this was no exception. Very reasonable rates and great location along our route to the beach. Our room was nice and typical of Best Westerns. Clean, quiet and conveniently located, just what I was looking for. The staff was very accommodating. Breakfast was good.

    « Very Good Hotel »

    The hotel is neat and clean, but the beds were too firm for me. The room we were in did have an unpleasant odor like stale, musky type odor, but the room looked clean. Since we were extremely tired from travelling and needed only one night stay, we endured the odor in the room. I rate this hotel an 8 out of 10.
