Perfect location close to the convention center, tons of restaurants, simple but clean, super friendly staff, excellent coffee available 24 hours a day, fresh breakfast, free wifi, great value! We literally parked the car and walked around downtown all weekend. Safe and very family oriented.

Great location. Had a wonderful time downtown. Enjoyed the nightlife a bit and everything is pretty much within walking distance. It's the best location if you plan to attend a concert or just want something good to eat and to have a great time.

We stopped in Columbia on our way home from Florida to visit family. I was quoted a price of $199.00 with free parking. When I checked out they said they would email me my receipt which never came. When I checked my bank account later in the day they charged my card $250.00. The room/ breakfast was nothing special. What...
