Gross and unsanitary Staff was nice and receptive of the critiques, but it boggles my mind that they even allowed for someone to be placed in a room like this I found a cockroach too

There were hairs on my pillows and comforter The comforter has stains on it and a hole in the middle There was notable trash from the previous guests on the ground Did not look like it had been vacuumed Big red stain on the carpet Chair stained Lampshades stained and gross Mysterious orange stuff in random places, most notably on the thermostat and picture, but it was other places tooThe ice machine was broken and there were limited beverages in the vending machine, and the ones on display looked gross Walls were also super thinI stayed one night and wish I hadn’t because I felt gross the whole time Ended up having a minor allergic reaction to something in the room too

Everything was perfect and comfy We didn’t wanna leave!! The room was so much more than was expected!!! We got a king suite with a sofa bed, and ended up with a room with 2 large beds as well as a sofa bed!!! The biggest bathroom we have ever seen in a hotel and a nice kid friendly pool area The wifi was a little weak and all of our devices were unable to be connected, but I was still able to set up and watch my firestick

Plenty of eating places around, breakfast smelled great even tho I didn’t eat anything Its the most comfortable and peaceful hotel I’ve ever stayed in, and this is including a Hilton located in the same area I will definitely be staying again!!!!

I actually booked this hotel by accident but I decided to at least examine the assigned room before changing to my original intent As it turned out, the room appeared clean, the bed seemed comfortable, the A/C was working properly, there was a microwave and refrigerator, as well as an iron and ironing board with a new cover — so I decided to stay My experience was great

The motel seemed heavily booked but there was no abnormal noise from all of the traffic The front desk personnel were friendly and I was struck at how much they seemed to care about the quality of my stay I didn’t realize they had a breakfast each morning until I was checking out at the end of the week, but what I saw at that time appeared to be a quality breakfast in the motel dining area In the future, I will not hesitate to use this property again and I want to say thanks to the motel staff for doing such a great job

Taylor Marlow

My fiance and I had the most fun in this room Compared to any of the other hot tub rooms in a 10 mile radius and the pricing of it it is hands down unbeatableThe hot tub itself is the biggest I’ve ever seen

Every time I get enough points from staying at the equality inn on Augusta road or Clarion I always go to this hotel Using my choice hotel reward points

tessa Trammell

It was over priced for quality and they did not honor the pricing I was quoted with choice who does their booking My bathroom had water leaking from the wall into the floor if you ran the sink It is a smoking room and the vent fan didn’t work so you lose privacy leaving the door open to air out

maintenance was supposed to come for water leak and vent fan nobody showed 3 night stay the staff was very friendly except for one very rude man at the front desk We killed 3 roaches tonight We check out in the morning One in bathroom, one by the little by the small couch and one on the lamp shade by the bed It was a quiet stay for a populateded area That was goodWe were assured wifi never were able to connect We were assured there were smart TV’s that we could use our prime and netflix on there are not any smart TVs here, misinformation Front desk blames who does their booking for misinformation I was given the wrong Check in time and advised if I extended an extra day it would be at same rate I extended after my first day at front desk but it wasn’t in the computer so I was thought by other front desk employees to be checking out had to do another reservation even after working with me some it was a much higher price The quiet is all I recommend and the friendliness of staff except one very rude man at the desk and I wouldn’t recommend the breakfast no matter if you show up when it starts in middle or end the lady is sitting talking none of the hot food is prepared and she acts like the world is going to come to an end to provide it, maybe shes a volunteer and we really did inconvenience her Dang she had me apologizing to her for asking her to get food put out very bad attitude The things you fix yourself are available but not the hot food unless you ask her to make it 3 days my husband was able to get one biscuit and one slice of sausage and that was a few minutes after breakfast started So bojangles, he had to buy when he was supposed to have free breakfast available here before he left for work He said she was sitting talking my same experience A guest had to show me how to use the waffle iron and he loudly complained to her that there was no hot food that morning I guess she’s paid to hold conversation I had to ask her to make me eggs she had an attitude about it There was supposed to be eggs sausage and gravy and hot biscuits that morning she was sitting at a table talking and there was 2 biscuits no sausage no gravy at 7 am The service manager gave me a slight discount for the last day stay that is still $20 above what I agreed to before all of this She was nice but no no no never ever again unless someone comes thru in a much better way Still great cleaning ladies just awesome and all front desk nice but one rude and the lazy woman who was in charge of breakfast

I stayed at TownePlace Suites for about two weeks in July because I had a son in ICU at the nearby hospital Every aspect of my stay at the hotel was flawless The staff, especially Shanna at the front desk, were very competent, eager to be helpful and sincerely concerned about my son’s condition

The facility is one of the most welcoming hotel I have been to in regards to the various sitting areas inside and out I particularly liked the community grill area and took full advantage of it on several occasions It felt like a nice gathering area for many of the guests after a long day I would recommend this hotel to anyone The quality of the facility was only surpassed by the friendliness of the staff

Rocksy Rae

Room was great! Very clean! Front desk staff was super nice and helpful! Very spacious! We requested a check-in earlier than the normal 4pm and was able to check-in at 12pm! Very accommodating! Outdoor pool isn’t very big but still great! Highly recommend if you are in the area! I’m giving the actual area 4 stars because it’s not the greatest location but it appears to be developing nicely Bojangles,Freddy’s, Dunkin Donuts and the hotel owned gas station (which is very nice) conveniently share same parking area with hotel so that was a definite plus Overall, we were very happy with our stay! Would definitely stay there again and also will be looking for this hotel in future stays on other vacations!

Vernon Kelly

This property is very clean and fairly new My initial check-in wasn’t very pleasant but the management staff made sure I was taken care of as far as my room and billing arrangements Housekeeping is a little inconsistent but generally they do a good job

This Marriott TownePlace Suites property is light years better than the one in Aiken SC

Young staff very friendly and helpful for food recommendations Service excellent Awesome room

Bed very comfortable and bedding soft and luxurious Towels very thick and fluffy! Decor on point! Pet friendly! Delicious food! Will go again! Loved the place! Caroline and Ryan at front desk were awesome! We also got in on the $30 summer special! That was a real treat to customers and I hope you do it again even though the website crashed!!! We will definitely be back! Enjoyed the city Columbia SC!

Mikayla Smith

I stayed a couple days ago with my daughter to do a tour really early and the over night manager was such a big help with directions and how to navigate where I needed to go on campus We really need more people like this she was such a sweetheart I hope this compliment gets to the young lady on overnights

She is a wonderful example for the hotel

Dej

Upon arrival on Saturday 7/9 evenjng time I was amazed at the beautiful decor but unsure about the front desk service No one was present at the door and when she did return she didn’t say much during the check in process Maybe she was new or tired, didn’t get her name but I will say the front desk staff on the morning of Sunday 7/10 was very kind and helpful 🙂 We decided to grab a bite at the bar before hitting the road and the food was delicious

The bartender Finley was super sweet and friendly and provided our dog Jackson with a drink of his own while we enjoyed ours ♥️ I also had the chance to meet several housekeeping team members who were working hard at keeping the place spotless and they were also super friendly! Thank you Finley and Sunday morning front desk staff for being so kind We will definitely be back Oh and we loved the room the bed was very comfortable but the pillows could be a little firmer 🥰

Heather Poff

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 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!

Heyward P

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

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

Helmer Korb

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

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

Sue Knapp

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

Pat P

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

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!

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

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

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

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!

I always like coming to stay here, the staff helpful and greet you with a smile The rooms are clean and comfortable The hotel bar has great selections, I miss social night and hope that will return

The pool is awesome wish they had a indoor pool as well William was very helpful and didn’t complain no matter how many times we needed him

Beatrice Hatcher

Room was not as expected and you had to pay for breakfast The lobby area is beautiful, but for the rest of the hotel, it could be a lot better considering how much you pay to stay there It was something that could have been cleaned, like the dresser, other than that it was okay

For me it’s minor things that the facility needs to address and they would be okay

John Washington

The room was very large with a living area and nice bedroom Some of the lighting in the living area and bathroom did not workThe remote control in the living area was missing a battery and did not work

They do have an on-site laundry, which is free, but you will have to purchase detergent and dryer sheets at the front desk

I travel often, and I guess I’ve gotten used to being in less-than-nice hotels I read the reviews and decided to stay here for a night last week while I was passing through I was so impressed that I felt like I had to write a review

Check-in was smooth, quick and Camaro at the front desk was so pleasant They even checked on me after I got up to my room to make sure everything was satisfactory The room was very clean, comfortable and spacious I stopped down for a quick breakfast on my way out the next morning and even the staff working there were incredibly friendly The breakfast was great with lots of choices, delicious hot coffee, fresh fruit and a wall unit to fill my water bottle before getting back on the road Needless to say, I wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again They’re doing everything right Excellent experience

The location of hotel is excellent for traveling with a dog The hotel itself is bright, clean, tastefully decorated and staff is friendly I have a 70 lb dog and she likes to walk a lot

There is a nice amount of grass area for walking the dog around the hotel But the best Bonus is a lake sits behind the hotel for the community of Harbison This lake has walking path around it as well as paths into the neighborhood so one could walk a few miles on safe paths Awesome!

Bed great Front desk person great at check in Would be a 5 star but there were issues

The shower curtain had black hairs all over it The bath sink was incredibly slow to drain The coffee station had no creamer or stirrers I believe one packet was already opened The TV had a black spot on it Damaged probably by someone cleaning it incorrectly Really irritating No Do not Disturb hanging thing for room Lastly, the room would vibrate occasionally Sure it was a AC/ heat unit somewhere out of whack The room was nice and somewhat clean Just several maintenance items needed attention Room 313 I should have known
