Business Traveling

Front desk was very friendly. The only complaint that I have about it was the pillows were kind of small and they reminded me of oversize throw pillows for a couch. I'll be bringing my own next time but other than that, great experience. Room was clean, breakfast was free, and it was in close proximity to Blythewood and Columbia.

Just gross feeling

The hotel feels dirty and smells terribly. We had bugs in our room and the entire floor smelled like smoke (even though it was a non-smoking room). Gave me a bad experience with La Quinta

Will not go back again

I book rooms for our company employees and will not book this room again. This hotel is in a questionable part of town. I would never send my female employees to stay there. This was a 3 night stay. The room was not clean and when something was spilled on the extra bed we pulled the covers etc off and housekeeping just made up the bed without changing the sheets. The floor was not vacuumed and when something was said at the front desk we were told to take it up with with the booking site there was nothing that could be done. The following day we pulled the sheets off and put them on the floor and they were taken away but no new sheets put on. When the front desk was told we were told the form showed the room was cleaned that day. When we insisted they come look at the room they acknowledged the room was not clean and put new sheet on but there were holes in the sheets. The manager apologized but said there was nothing he could do becaused we booked on line. Apparently they are not happy with people who book thru online booking sites because they kept bringing that up.

Slightly below average hotel

The hotel seemed to have a smell of old beer and throw up in hallway. May have just been by chance. The room was pretty nice. The staff was rarely at desk and took a long time to check in.

pretty good for thr price

We paid 62.00 for a room that was less than a 10 minute drive from University of South Carolina, which was our final destination. Plenty of food places, not too noisy, the room was far from fancy but it was clean. The only cons I have are the weak breakfast and the smell in the room. You could tell someone tried to sneak a cig in the room previously, and the odor never left. Overall a 4 from me considering price. Also, if you have young kids that want to swim, I would veer away from here because the pool was iffy.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

If you are going just to tour USC this is a great place for a cheap price since it is so close. Just one highway exit down.

Great for a night or two...

Driving up to it, the location is a great to use the word, "rachet". I thought it wasnt' in the greatest area, very dirty surrounding areas. Upon my check in, they told be it was one of only five La Quintas left that allow smoking rooms...gggrrrreeeaaaaatttttt. I nearly got a smoking room but the staff was so nice and gave me another NON-smoking room. The room was clean, the bed was comfy, and the breakfast was great if you were in a hurry. It certainly wasn't the great La Quinta or hotel I have ever stayed at, but the staff was great and the room did it's job for the night. Overall AVERAGE.
