Quick overnight

The Microtel is conveniently located on the western side of Columbia. The staff was helpful but a little under motivated. They didn't pay attention when the coffee was low or gone, nor jump to fix the problem. Breakfast, as it was minimal, didn't get set up until 7. The room was OK. It was clean. It was small. Overall it was worth the 70 I paid. But it didn't exceed expectations.

This hotel is hard to access in and out. Building, rooms,and common areas all need to be tenovated ( as well as the breakfast). Rooms were clean so it is not a total bust, just not to the typical standards for a Microtel.

What did I reserve!

the hotel was easy to find off the Interstate. The outside appearence ws okay. The reception room ws "nice in appearence and welcoming.. Reception clerk young, knew her job and registered me , gave te key and directions as to which way to turn when I got off the elevator as well as a place to get supper. the room was small, neat but had a worn out look about it. It had the same lay out as ones I had stayed at on the way to and from Flordia. both were located on I 75. I almost decided to check out but decided to stay. It was quiet and I slept well. In the morning I went down to breakfast to find a very dissappointing array of food. the ceral look as if some one had fun playing in the remainds. there was a few piced of scrambled egg. nO cups were at the coffee pot which was in the reception area. I made a waffle and tht was good. Not much milk but enough to put in the coffee. Very disappointing. Not like the othere I have stayed in.

Thank you very much!!!

My spouse and I were taking a class nearby. The room was small, but very comfortable. We enjoyed our stay very much. However, I didn't like traveling so far to work out at the gym or go for a swim. Overall, Microtel's customer service, cleanliness, and location were excellent.

Good for 1 night's sleep

The air conditioner didn't work well and it was hard to flush the toilet because the handle was behind the poorly crafted counter top. We were traveling on a budget and it was ok for the night. The older gentleman who checked us in was wonderful, I checked in an hour before his shift ended but he gave me as much attention and info as if his shift just started. He even commented on the snacks that I had.....honestly his friendly spirit made the difference.

Run away from here as fast as you can!!

The moment we walked in the door there was attitude from the overly paid girl at the counter. The first room we had was DISGUSTING and the recliner was stained and broken, it was shoved against the wall to hide the fact until my 5 year daughter sat in it. There were so many things broken that I had to make a list to take to the front desk when I requested a new room. The man who showed us the new room was the ONLY good and decent part of the whole hotel. I spoke to other people staying there and the only ones who had no complaint were under the age of 25 and wore drug promoting t-shirts and their pants hanging down. It was the most disgusting place!! I would rather sleep in my car then ever stay here again. Run away from this hotel as fast as you can. Even $10.00 a night is to much to pay for this service.And you must bring your own shampoo because you only get two hotel bars of soap and no maid service.
