This place had everything we needed and was the best property we stayed at on our most recent vacation. The Public area is spacious, staff is friendly, room is gorgeous with comfortable bed. Only problem was that we were just passing through and staying one night. Oh yes, the location is good and the parking is nearby and free

Hotel's Favourite
I'm a little late with my review, but I dare not leave feedback for the staff who catered to my family and our needs during one of the most heartbreaking times of our lives. My family and I flew from all over to gather for my dear grandmother's funeral. From day one, Deshaun and Ashley have been very sweet, accommodating and supportive of whatever requests we needed. The events manager (forgot her name!) was also a huge help in letting us have the private repass in one of the conference rooms. We stayed for 2 weeks ,having to extend our time to help situation my grandmother's affairs and Ashley was very helpful in assisting us with multiple rooms and keeping us all near each other. While not all of the staff were as friendly or helpful, I am making it a point to call out those who were. We had a few housekeeping issues during certain shifts, but again we don't normally stay in local hotels for such an extended period of time, so I guess it was to be expected. We made the most of it and were grateful for the time we were there. Oh, and I dare not shout out the bartender, I think his name was Troy?! He was such a sweetheart and made some of the best Henny cocktails I've ever had. He consoled me on one of my bad nights missing my granny and he's a great listener! Thank you so much for those of you who helped and aided with my family during our time of need.

Friendly staff, clean room, and a complimentary breakfast. Checked the boxes for all the necessities. Only issue we had was the shower head was broken and shot water all over the ceiling, but the staff said they'd let maintenance know when we let them know at check out.

Room Tip: On site parking is great for the area and it's within walking distance of quite a lot of places.

We recently stayed in room 402. Room was clean with plenty of towels, microwave, small fridge and smaller coffee pot. We were visiting our son so didn't spend much time there. Good: location can't be beat. Easy drive to West Columbia, lots of restaurants within walking distance, Publix across the street. Great: Staff was all very friendly and helpful. Everyone greeted you and were quite polite. Breakfast each morning was wonderful. Great time and money saver. Meh: No maid service the entire time. No one emptied our garbage cans or refreshed out coffee maker or made our bed or gave us fresh towels. I thought that was very strange but I understand that most places are shorthanded on staff so I chalked it up to that I would/ will stay there again.

I’ll start off saying I avoid writing negative reviews. Being apart of the service industry, understanding the staffing shortage and wage increase it’s challenging to keep up in this environment. So I am a hyatt globalist, Hilton Diamond, and Spire Elite (travel quite a bit), and something that has never happened in all my nights occurred. First, hotel is extremely basic. Nothing bad/nothing amazing. Just clean. It’s right on the side of a very busy road, so request a room on the parking lot side to get some sleep (or earplugs). There is a parking lot with free parking. When you park, there is no sign anywhere regarding having a parking pass. When we checked in, a lady talking on her AirPods checked us in, gave us a key and there we go. So imagine my surprise in the morning when we had 15 minutes to make a wedding brunch that our car was missing. Better yet, while standing there two other guests also came down to their car missing. Overall, 13 vehicles were towed from the lot. Now they did give complementary rides over to the tow lot (35 minutes away) but seriously? Plus they did not have record of our car leaving their lot, we had to head there and look around to find our car. No apology, no free water, nothing on their website. Just horrible communication and worse customer service. There are plenty of hotels in Columbia. Choose any of them but here.

There is nothing fancy about this hotel, but it's not trying to be fancy. It's offering very nice rooms, good service and value. Which is what you get here. So, we were pleased overall and had a very nice stay.

This hotel was average at best. I stayed here with my family of five for a concert at the Colonial Life Arena. The pros: The ladies at the front during check in were very nice. Also, the rooms seemed really clean and there were plenty of towels, blankets, etc. There was also a shuttle that drove us to the concert. We found though that we could actually walk back from the concert more quickly than waiting on the shuttle. The distance to the concert venue was a plus. The cons: The biggest con is that the hotel is right beside a very busy road that is noisy all night. It's loud with traffic, but also seems to be the route that emergency vehicles take. Lots of sirens and loud engines. There are also so many street lights right outside the window that the room doesn't actually get dark even with the blackout curtains. Also, the parking is extremely tight and some of the vehicles in the parking lot just made their own spots and parked wherever they could find. So, this hotel is just average for me, but I would not recommend due to the fact that it is VERY expensive for what you get. If you are going to pay such a high price, pick a hotel that you can actually get some sleep.

A comfortable room in a hotel that could use some updating. The room was clean and the staff seemed to be doing a conscientious job of cleaning. The hotel is well located near restaurants and the State museum. The desk staff was friendly. There is a free breakfast, and while not extensive, does provide eggs, sausage, bagels, coffee and juice.

I was very disappointed with my stay at this hotel. It is old and every aspect needs modernizing and updating. The AC is old and noisy. The bathroom has poor lighting and old fixtures. There are no outlets by the night tables in the room. The television is poorly placed so that you can’t see well from the sitting area or bed.  The bedding is old. I had a large room with 2 sinks but the shower is narrow and floor slippery and there aren’t any nice amenities in the room.

I 100% agree with the post below that is hotel is in desperate need of a remodel. We stayed for parents weekend at USC. The hotel was dirty and service was non-existent. We had 2 request that were simply ignored. Our mattress was probably older than our son with a huge dip in the middle. This is the oldest Spring Hill Suites I have ever stayed in & completely diminishes the brand in my opinion. I would only stay here if it is your only option.
