Bed was lumpy. Linens scratchy. Toilet made a loud screeching noise when flushed for about a minute afterward.
LOCATION: Location is ideal for parents and families visiting USC. Property is centrally located in Columbia downtown. Easy access to campus and restaurants.
ATTACHED PARKING IS JAMMED: The parking lot was very crowded and the layout of the lot meant it took us almost 30 minutes to park given the backup caused by people checking out. SLOW SERVICE: Breakfast was delicious, but we had to ask three different people for refills on coffee. 20 minutes later we finally got a carafe. DATED FURNISHINGS/SMELL IN ROOM: for the price, the room dated and in disrepair. The carpets are worn and pulling from the walls; the refrigerator sat on the floor directly and was barely cold; the bathroom was dated with a moldy shower curtain. Room overall had a very musty smell. If they had not been sold out, I would have requested a room transfer.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location was great and the bar and restaurant area were nice. The valet service was quick with getting our car. Nice spacious room.
Location is great
Lack of available parking - room is 45 minutes to get into the parking lot with the backup Room smelled like dog urine and was in disrepair Furnishings, carpet overall dated and lacked cleanliness
We came from Virginia to SC for Family weekend at USC. Per my reservation/confirmation email, our check-in time was 4:00 p.m. Upon checkin, we were told that no rooms were available and that we would be put on their wait list. I asked to speak with the manager and was told that he was upstairs in the hotel helping the staff clean rooms, which I highly doubted and believe that he was hiding from all of the unhappy guests. We were told to provide our phone numbers and would be called when our room was ready. No one ever called. We finally checked in around 8:30/9:00 p.m. and asked for a credit for the trouble that was encountered, much less the time we lost from the room. We were told that because we booked with booking.com that there was nothing they could do and asked if we wanted complimentary water bottles instead. Really? The so called Assistant Manager was rude and could really care less. The Manager was still nowhere to be found. The room was small but comfortable, nothing spectacular, especially for the high price paid. I believe the prices were significantly raised for this weekend (price gauges). I stayed at the Courtyard a month prior for way less and was much nicer and the staff were more friendly.
