Staybridge Suites on Hager

We stayed at Staybridge Suites last night and it was an overall good experience. I got there at 2:45 and check-in was at 3pm and only being a few minutes early, my room was not yet ready. I went ahead and checked in and the lady at the front desk said she would call me when the room was ready. Around 4:30 in the evening, I took the liberty of calling them myself because I never did receive a phone call. My room was ready at this time and we returned to check in. Our room was nice, comfortably spaced and had a full kitchen and separate bedroom with the King bed. The cabinets looked a lil out of date but no big deal. The bathroom was small to get in and out of but there was a separate vanity area which makes up for it. The shower had great water pressure but there wasn't a tub. The towels were a bit rough, not very soft to the touch. The bed was fairly comfortable, not the best, but better than some others I've stayed at. The WiFi was fast and easily accessible. We went for a dip in the pool before bedtime. The pool area was kinda small, not a lot of chairs set out and the pool was salt water which was good but it only went down to four feet deep. It was heated which is a bonus but there wasn't a hot tub on site. We overslept and didn't get to try the breakfast buffet in the morning but it looked like there would've been a large variety by looking at the setup. The seating area was large and had plenty of seats for many guests. I liked that the weekend breakfast buffet served til 1030. Overall the experience was satisfactory.

Well maintained, helpful staff

Clean room, helpful staff. A bit far from downtown (5-10 minutes drive). Entrance to parking lot is also a little confusing from Huger Street. Only complaint about the room is that the curtains did not close in mine. Otherwise, though, a great option for an affordable place to stay in Columbia.

Getaway

The stovetop didn't work properly yet when I complained the staff didn't accommodate well at all considering the kitchen was important in my hotel choice. I do however believe if I would have been given another room my stay would have been pleasant.

College Orientation

This hotel is great. Having to be out early in the AM to get to orientation the breakfast they serve is just what you need. No need to make an extra stop. The rooms are spacious and the dinners hit the spot after being out all day. This is my spot to stay when i am visiting my son at USC. Go gamecocks!

double charged!

I booked this hotel through Orbitz...I have stayed here before and usually enjoy my stay but this time my room did not smell fresh...there were hairs all over our comforter...but the biggest issue was the fact that the hotel charged my credit card...even after they knew I paid for the room in full through Orbitz...careless mistake.
