Our family attended a wedding weekend in Columbia and we booked 3 rooms at the Chestnut Cottage Bed & Breakfast From the moment we stepped into the parlor of this historical home we met the owner Mary Sparrow and was immediately delighted we had selected this remarkable B&B The house is loaded with history, beautifully appointed furnishings & the best of charm!The guest rooms were large, beautifully decorated with small touches like flowers in our room, bottles of water, chocolates, etc

but my favorite touch was the delicious breakfasts served every morning gathered together in the dining room Another favorite was the front porch swing and the rocking chairs As you know, a swing soothes the soul and the porch was magical at night!If your plans take you to Columbia, just call Mary she can tell you everything about the history, sites and dining in the area – she is an encyclopedia of knowledge My family can’t wait to visit Columbia and enjoy the pleasure of what the Chestnut Cottage B&B adds to ones life – Culture, Comfort & true Southern Hospitality!

The most beautiful place we could have stayed on our overnight trip to Columbia Mary was so accommodating and made our stay here wonderful! The property is so rich in history and adorned with beautiful antiques Our room was clean, spacious, and even stocked with complimentary waters! Patticake, the resident cat made our night in the cottage even better! I would recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone passing through or planning a stay in Columbia

It is also within a block from the Township Auditorium, making our trip to the concert we were attending a breeze Thank you for the lovely time, Mary We will definitely be staying here again

Had a great stay! We stayed in the Garden Suite room and it was a perfect space for us for one night! Mary had the room ready to go for us right when we got there After we left, I had forgotten my glasses and called Mary and she was super helpful and found them for me and sent them in the mail She was so sweet and awesome! Would definitely recommend!

Tamara Keitt

Such an awesome stay! All the staff were very hospitable, and willing to answer questions happily The hotel/room very clean The lobby makes a great area to meet up for drinks or hangout with friends

The only negative thing but also positive is that the hotel is located less than 5 minutes from one of the best hospitals in the city Therefore you hear ambulance sirens frequently We still were able to get great sleep! The shuttle service was ready when we needed and got us to the airport in great time!

Joey Boyack

Traveling from Louisiana to Virginia we needed a break and started Googling hotels in Columbia We usually try to stay at Hampton Inn while on the road but surprisingly the reviews for the 3 I looked at were disappointing I looked into this Hilton Garden Inn and it sounded pretty good and we figured we’d give it a try

This hotel was probably one of the nicest hotels we’ve ever stayed at Both front desk employees were friendly and polite The hotel looked brand new, very clean We got to our room and it was very clean We got the king bed suite (only $9 more than regular) and it was huge! I was glad to see they had a bar/restaurant in this hotel as we were hungry, and although there were plenty of places to eat in the vicinity, we had been in the road for 9 hours and just wanted to relax The bartender was nice and held conversation with us and others we saw sitting at the bar And the food was good and not too expensive either! Had a quiet night and we’re back on the road again Definitely a place to stay at if you are in the area #1…super clean! #2…friendly staff, especially the lady (Gayla, I hope I got your name right) that checked us in!

Melanie Henderson

This is a very nice hotel The rooms are spacious The bathroom and shower were really nice as well

My only complaint was the breakfast The bacon and sausage was burnt The Belgian waffle that says “cooked to order” came out of a cellophane wrapper Then they had the audacity to charge $11 for what equates to a glorified Eggo The location was right off the interstate which very convenient Overall the hotel is really nice with beautiful decor I would stay there againwithout eating the breakfast

Wow I understand $95 bucks a nights for basic, but this is worse Room stinks of what I can only hope is old cigars

Holes in my curtains When I fall into my bed all I feel is springs Springs you say? Surely that can’t be true But it be true Horrible mattress and pillows worse Surprisingly, the hot breakfast is decent Avoid this joint unless desperateyikes

Nina Brown

The room seemed cleaned and it was a nice size While i was visiting family the sink in the bathroom backed up and flooded which left the floor wet as well as under the floor boards When i returned i alerted the night time clerk and he assisted with towels

He stated the hotel was at it max and i could not be moved The sheets had a stain which i had to put towels over to sleep i check out of the hotel before my original check out time I contacted the hotel manager Monday morning and she stated to email her the photos of the room and i did I followed up twice which i still haven’t received a response I booked through a 3 party vendor so of course, they don’t care because they’re only getting a percentage of what i paid which is probably more than booking through hotel myself The location of the hotel was the best highlight, close to highway, across the street from the mall and on the same lot as walmart and other brandstore

Laura Bibby

Where do I start Ok We got there for an overnight stay, we were impressed with the nice lobby and polite staff so we paid the $165 for a room

When we got to the room, we opened the door to a smell of stagnant, moldy air, a huge puddle of water in front of the fridge, torn curtains, a broken side table, broken headboards, questionable stains on the couch, damp towels and bed sheets, and an OdorStop machine running on the deskAll three of us started coughing uncontrollably, presumably because of the mold, and decided this was not going to work We called the front desk and were able to switch roomsThe next room, while much better, still smelled of mold, had a dirty towel in the bathtub, and the plastic coffee filters provided didn’t fit the coffee makerAgain, staff were very nice and accommodating which is the only reason we give this place a 2 star For $165 for a 12 hour stay, we’d expect a much better experience than what we got This place needs some serious TLC

Shane Hutton

Great stay at this Residence Inn! Dorian was so helpful and accommodating His level of customer service is way above the norm I actually called before booking and he was the reason I booked this hotel

The hotel was nice The AC worked extremely well on a very hot day Comfortable bed, quiet room and good breakfast This hotel checked all the boxes for a good nights rest

Phe Smith

The staff was friendly but I would not stay here again The rooms need to be upgraded and deep cleaned The chairs were frayed and stained while the cracks of the bathroom have seen better days

The room smelled stale so we had to keep the window open to get some fresh air The hot food was good but the fruit and juice were not good There is not enough parking at the front of the building

Good hotel for young people traveling with dogs If you are not that, you probably will not care for this place Elevator and second floor smelled of dogs, room didn’t have a clean feel or smell

Very dark dated rooms Loud guestsThey put a lot into first floor amenities aimed at the younger crowd I was there for one night for business There are better options for business travelers in downtown Columbia

Jack Claypoole

The Aloft served as the host hotel for our recent family reunion It’s central location allowed for folks coming from five different states to not have to rent cars since it’s in walking distance to food and activities The Aloft team took outstanding care of our crew for four days – everything was perfect

Attentive, friendly staff and super facilities

TL Reynolds

Excellent room for low and reasonable price Everything exceeded expectations There is also artwork on the walls from local artists available for purchase

In the rooms, drybar is the sponsor of all bathroom soaps/loations Parking is around the corner and it is cheaper if you pay at the garage than hotel if not using valet services This was our first time staying at Aloft and we look forward to our next visit!

I loved the location, it was close to anything you’d want or need as far as dining and shopping The lobby and public areas seems to be renovated which is great I knew the hotel was older by the one functioning elevator

We had a two queen beds room It was spacious! The carpet and the bathroom were super dated Overall, nice experience 👌🏾

joey desilets

The location was conveniently located next to some nice restaurants and stores The staff was very nice The food was excellent

The mini store in lobby was way over priced The hallways were hot and have this mildew smell The room itself was decent The whirlpool tub was nice being a tall guy it’s not easy to find a tub to take a bath in The shower could use some help water temp is awesome but that shower head sucks no pressure and it sprayed everywhere except down The bathroom gets hot very quick with door shut due to no working vents Toilet had some flushing issues Electronic door lock stopped working properly The room had some nasty stain brown stain on the floor that was sticky to touch after stepping on it Pillows were very nice Bed was horrible felt every spring in the mattress my wife having back problems this bed definitely didn’t help Woke up so sore and unrested Found cigar clippings all over the floor next to the bed

G Marie

Bad experience from the beginning Drove 3 hours to stay one night, as my son has a tournament for Taekwondo, and we couldn’t even park b/c there was an event at the hotel leaving NO parking for guests The receptionist ignored me for at least 2 minutes after I arrived at the desk

There were NO other guests at the desk, and she appeared to be on her phone She knew there was no parking, but was basically like “I have no solution for you” Rooms smaller than expected, stains all over the floor, and the bed’s sheet have holes All the money we pay, they should be able to afford new sheets! I should have brought my own sheets! Probably wouldn’t choose to stay here again Too expensive for poor service, no parking, and dingy room Disappointed!

I’ve stayed here several times while in town on business The staff is always friendly and competent The beds are soft and comfortable

However, the beds are king sized, even when some of the rooms are really too small to accommodate a bed that size In a couple of rooms, the bed was so large that I couldn’t pull the desk chair outThe refurbished building is beautiful, the basement Starbucks is convenient, and the rooftop bar is a very cool experience But the building shows it’s age in some of the fixtures

Melissa

Outstanding historic building formerly a bank Lobby has the original bank vault which leads to a cozy bar Beautiful corner suite with views of downtown

Room was very clean, staff were friendly and ready to make recommendations for the area Hotel has an amazing I got rooftop bar with amazing city views Tons of great restaurants all within walking distance, very clean and safe downtown area If you manage to travel on the weekend they have a street market every Saturday every week of the year with lots of art vendors, food truck, fresh flowers and musicians There is valet parking that cost $24 a night plus tips No restaurant on premises, loved our stay and definitely will stay again!

jasonbwell

I loved the architecture of the building It really has an old school vibe Location is awesome

My only issue is parking They do offer valet Amazing view from the rooftop bar but no food There are tons of options within walking distance The Starbucks below it is the coolest I have seen Kind of has a speakeasy vibe The elevator will take you straight to it It’s unique and for that I say it’s worth a stay I will be back

First, this is booked by my husband’s company and hopefully this will be the last time we are here because the first three weeks were not greatconsidering the paper thin walls and constant noise along with the neighbors getting high but this time is awful The second room tonight and the place is just ghetto They half cleaned and the beds are lumpy & made without a care looking all used and wrinkled

I’m exhausted after traveling all day so changing from one room to another that’s just as bad- with no cart to carry any of our luggage- is just entirely unacceptable We will not recommend this place and will let the company know never to book here againThe breakfast is awful with no variety and the coffee is lukewarm at best by 6am

Keioshya Brown

When I checked in the agent was abrupt and seemed distracted from her taskshanded me the keys and didn’t say what room I was assigned to or anything of the sort The auditor however went above and beyond to provide whatever the guest’s may have needed

She always greeted me with a smile and let me know I was welcome there I was alone so this was very much appreciated The room was very clean and trendy while the TV was a smart TV that allowed you to log in to streaming services such as Netflix or Hulu Will definitely stay again

Jason Zheng

The house keeping workers are unprofessional, it’s under quality of Marriott brand management I placed the “Do Not Disturb” tag on the door handle during my stay, the housing keeping person till knocked on the door to check if I was going to checkout, my sweet dream was broken at 8am, I told them that I would check out at noon since I had been woken up The worst part was that envelope I told them to not bother me until my check out time, they still knocked on the door to rush me checkout at 11:15, this is unacceptable

I will never come back to this place again, and continue to post low quality review on internet for other guests caution, not being victims of worst hospitality experience

No hotel is perfect, but when every effort is made to try for it one must be thankful The staff is amazing as other guests have said in their reviews Recently I stayed at an Extended Stay in Baton Rouge which I wouldn’t wish on anyone

Compared to that, this place is luxury livingI have been here for four weeks in two separate stays over the last month and total of three different rooms If I may share things to improve, two things The TV has major lag time in each room Takes like 3 seconds or more to respond to the remote, even asked for new batteries but every room the same Not sure what data needs to be streamed for corporate but even scrolling through menu is so slow it will make you angry The last item is like most hotels, some motion sensor in the room will shut off the AC in the middle of the night so save energy so I tend to be hot and yet to make it through one night without waking up in total heat around 3:30am A simple walk in the room and it comes onOverall four stars with suggestions Thanks much to the staff

Kendall Christian

I’ve stayed here a few times when in town for work If you have a pet, the rooms are not as clean unfortunately Biggest issue is the temperature in the gym

3rd time I’ve stayed and it was over 80 degrees Today at 6:30 PM I addressed the issue with the front desk and he informed me that it wasn’t working to yet come back later and tell me it was changed from 71 to 78 degrees earlier in the day So you lied about it being broken because you didn’t want to take the time to change it? They put care into happy hour for guest but will not accommodate a temperature for a guest in the gym As a Marriott Bonvoy member I try to stay loyal to the Marriott brand because of the dedication to the service and care of the staff, but the level of care here is definitely more of a 1 star establishment

Cindy Boe

We arrived after 4:00p and had to wait 2 hours for our room “to be cleaned” The front desk personnel were not friendly and when not checking someone in they sat in the lobby staring at their phones When we were finally able to get inside our room it was FILTHY

Hair on the bathroom floor, HAIR ON THE SHOWER FLOOR, carpet stains, dead bugs, stain on sofa bed and desk chair and a toy left behind from former guestThe room was dirty and in an unsanitary state We went to the desk and informed the two employees They barely responded nor acted surprised We left the hotel

So I hate to write a bad review but I absolutely wouldn’t go back I was given my room and went up to unload and someone was already in the room I walked into someone else’s room

Shower had hair all over and the shower curtain had mold And I was only there to sleep was gone most of the time But front desk was left unattended and the employees that waited on me were friendly but didn’t seem to know exactly how to help Check out was fine the employee was kind and friendly

Heather Morris

We had a very poor experience here We checked in approximately about 6pm We go to our room to find it hasn’t been touched since the last guest had left

The bed wasn’t made, trash cans full, towels on the corner in the bathroom floor and the fridge was full of leftover alcohol andfood We called the front desk and we were told they would send up housekeeping immediately We asked to be switched to another room and were informed they are completely booked We waited thirty minutes and no one showed up We again called the front desk and they said they would page housekeeping A few minutes later they called to let us know they were switching our room I asked, once we went to the front desk, why did they tell us they were booked if there was a room available The employee explained that a guest decided to leave I don’t buy it, but it was clean and amazingly it was right next to our previous room I understand places are short staffed but just provide me with good customer service and be honestI have pics but they won’t post

Sharon Czeresko

First off, the entire staff was extremely helpful, hardworking and friendly If this review was solely based on staff I’d have no doubt given a 5 star review However, the property itself is in extreme need of some help

Just feels old, tired and begging for a deep Clean Stained carpeting and walls, trash in the halls and poor lighting Very little in the way of supplies (even the snack market was a bit sparse And the elevators (aside from being slow) were loud and scary Overall, the room itself was fairly clean, but still felt dark and tired Stayed here years ago and I guess I’d expected it to have been kept up Definitely convenient location and I felt safe inside and out of the building Just not what I would have expected from a product with the Hyatt name Likely wouldn’t choose this hotel next time I’m sorry, wish I had a better review

We stayed on north side and we heard a few sirens when we first got to our place of the 4th floor We thought we might hear that all night long but we both didn’t hear any street noise all night It’s a give and take being close to freeway

The room is very nice The only area I dropped a star was the bathroom I don’t know why the builders didn’t put fans in bathrooms Without fans, you end up with more wear in the bathroom Compared to other hotels on our cross country trip, this was one of the better bathroomsFood/breakfast was great Bacon crispy, nothing was empty at 9am And they had someone servicing the area as neededThe stairwell didn’t have a/c, but was clean Shows the that hidden areas are getting cleaned Someone here is managing very well this hotel Thanks!We’d stay here again

Nicole O

Overall, this is a very nice hotel, but it could be better Just left Saturday morning The breakfast is excellent

The pool should be cleaned by staff more often We went in it a couple of times and we had stranger’s hair wrap around our arms and legs (gross) and there were bird feathers and bugs in the water The only other thing I had an issue with is housekeeping We were told housekeeping does not clean the room until the third day of your stay, and you had to request it They should come every day unless you have the do not disturb sign on the door Or at least every other I’ve never stayed anywhere where I had to wait until 3 days into my stay and then call and request housekeeping Location is very convenient and the bed was very comfortable

DAVIS ELITE ATHLETES

We stayed at the Wyndham location and the stay itself was good 2 issues 1 was handled the other was a pure lie1

Sheets had a NASTY stain on it (Manager on staff was awesome and helped us)2 We were literally In the pool and were told they needed to add chlorine and we could go back within a few minutes 2 days laterpool was not open The pool was the main reason we choose this hotel because of the 114 degree weatherIt’s unfortunate but the rate wasn’t adjusted Such is life

Everything was great but I am mainly writing this review for Shay, the very helpful and friendly lady at the front desk She has been absolutely wonderful Efficient, kind, and diplomatic

In my two day stay at the hotel, I could definitely tell she works hard and aims to please Customer service skills at its best I travel quite a bit and I rarely write reviews but this one was certainly warranted

Mindy Stephenson

We were recently guests and 5 stars isn’t enough

We arrived well after 10pm after driving all the way from Columbus Ohio and not stopping and the front desk made sure we had something to eat when we got there and the staff here is OUTSTANDING! They were so kind and offered the best service I’ve ever had from a hotel Room was fabulous and I can’t stay enough about this place!! Worth the money Every penny! They even let us park the 26 ft U haul right in front of the hotel because I was worried someone breaking in the truck Hope to be able to stay here again!

Valerie Lloyd Golson

I surprised my husband for his birthday with an overnight stay at “The Trundle Hotel” and it was exceptional in every way Upon entering the Hotel you are greeted by “Shay” not a ray of sunshine; but the sun itself! What ever other assistance is needed; your friendly all a round “Mr Fix it” John, is there to help you too

These two young people are truly “assets” to the establishment We also had the pleasure of meeting the Owners and found them to treat every guest with respect and wanting to make sure your stay is everything you want it to be Don’t be fooled by the exterior, the enterior decor is so warm and inviting No two rooms are alike Please come inyou will not be disappointed! We cannot wait to make our next reservation

Friendly staff 5/5Now let’s get to the roomBed super soft my boyfriend and I both where out like lights We did have a King sweet and im pretty sure we stayed in room 310

It was clean, probably one of the nicer BW we have stayed in in quit some timeBathroom I really wanna give a 45 shower was AMAZING, it has perfect water pressure and they know ya boy likes it HOT The only downfall of the bathroom was the toilet It was connected to anything so when you sat on it, it moved a lotThe nature of our stay was just one night decided not to drive home through all the storms and found this place for a great price I would honestly stay here again and hope the toilet was better secured

When checking in I told the lady at the desk that my husband smokes and where were the designated areas She told me where I initialed the parts where it says smoking in room is $250 charge

My husband smoked outside but when we left they added $250 to my charge card They said they can prove he smoked in the room I asked the how, The answer was they do this all the time and they charge when people smoke inside I asked about the dope smoke smell in the hall and she says they charged everyone that smokes So I guess because I stated up front there would be a smoker in the room and the halls reeked of smoke when we arrived I was on the list So just to forewarn if you smell the dope smoke on your way in just know you will be charged whether you smoke or not If your clothes smell then be prepared to have a charge whether you smoke in the room or use their smoking area I am a non-smoker and I did not smell anything in our room at anytimeso just saying

Law Abiding

I thought it was a new hotel but once I started examining closely, I could see it it’s beginning to show some age It wasn’t horrible by any meansThe bed was too soft for my back and the sheets and pillows were average at best

Lots of parking, small pool and no breakfastOverall I’d do it again for a short stay

Convenient, yes We stayed here 1 night Memorial Day weekend Did not receive a request to submit a review so posting here

Can not recommend this place Tiny, tiny fridge in room The Starbucks everyone raves about was NOT open the night and morning we were there They aren’t kidding about nothing being in the area, so this was huge For the price we paid ($200 for 1 night), free coffee, tea and ice water in the lobby seems the least they could have done

DO NOT take room 424

something on the roof above sounds like a nuclear plant stops and startsvery loud There is no parking in front of hotel so it’s a walk to your car (you can go through pool area in back but you have two security doors to mess with Shower design A+ water pressure F-(slightly better than a drip) Two small glasses of Prosecco $2400 without waiter Good location for expressway

My husband and I stayed a night here for the Elton John concert I was very impressed Felt like a newer building and had multiple entries that only opened with a room key so it felt safe

The staff were all very friendly and helpful The entire building felt clean and welcoming Our room was small but based on the photos I knew that going in The bed was comfortable and clean, the bathroom was clean and organized with towels set up and easy to get to I loved the dispensers for the soaps and shampoos The shower was beautiful and everything just felt nice The breakfast was so much better than expected You had your basics of yogurt, an apple, bagels and cereal, but they also had oatmeal, eggs, sausage, pancakes and English muffins Would absolutely come here again Easy check in and even easier check out Well lit parking lot and felt like a safe area over all Thank you so much!

William Andrew Sheppard

This is the second Tru in which I have stayed Much like the other Tru, it is decorated in a modern minimalist style Rooms are very small but clean and with comfortable beds

The lobby has a billiards table and an array of little nooks for reading or doing work Staff was very friendly and the hotel is located near the zoo and Saluda Riverwalk Only reason it is not 5 stars is the room size This is Columbia, SC, not Manhattan, there is no reason a modern hotel room should be this small

My favorite Hilton Hotel as a business traveler This hotel is older but has been well cared for and updated The rooms are spacious with very comfortable beds and nice furniture

The staff is always very accommodating and the parking is the best for a downtown urban hotel as it’s a secure garage attached to the lobby so if it’s raining you won’t get wetIt’s less then a 5 minute walk from parking garage to your roomRuth Chris is lobby is good and hotel is less then one block from many other restaurants

Gloria Gaillard

Our stay was enjoyable! The room was clean, and the staff was polite and friendly Dinner at the restaurant downstairs (Ruth Chris) was great The only reason for not giving a 5 star rating was because the mattress slips on the beds wooden platform and the pillows could be more comfortable

Otherwise a great hotel, very clean, very nice!

I said Hilton hotels All the time but usually lower end ones like Hampton inn when I’m traveling or going to see friends This Hilton Columbia center was fantastic Very clean very nice rooms and great amenities

But most importantly the front desk the people there were great the service was so good The person who helped check me in the first day saw me on the third day when I was leaving and remembered me and mentioned that I was able to get free breakfast since I was a diamond member Just the fact that she remembered me I thought was very surprising That’s what I call great service

We stayed at this hotel as a halfway point between our home and vacation destination It was exactly what I was hoping for A clean, comfortable room that provided a quiet, restful sleep

It was the most quiet hotel stay I’ve had in quite some time!Location felt safe and easily accessible We were able to find dinner nearby and had quick access to the freeway in the morning We utilized the pool, fitness center and hot breakfast All wonderful!

Jen Alegria

Great customer service Seriously! We came from California and stopped at several hotels and this was by far the nicest, cleanest hotel we stayed at all across the entire country! Buffet was awesome! Shoutout to Adam working the reception desk in the morning, the dark haired lady that got us checked in at night (didn’t catch her name) and the lady working the breakfast buffet that clearly took pride in her job and had it dialed in! Great team and highly recommend this place!

My wife and I had a very pleasant stay at The Hampton Inn Lexington According to the staff, the hotel is less than 2 years old It is the new style of Hampton Inns and is nicely finished

The staff was very friendly and accommodating and our room was nice and clean We had a handicapped room with roll-in shower; it includes a built-in, fold down seat and two shower heads This was very nice As you will notice from the map, the hotel is just off I-20, not in the middle of Lexington This location is very convenient for getting to Lexington or Columbia We arrived at a downtown church on Bull Street in less than 20 minutes If this location works for you, I highly recommend the Lexington Hampton Inn
