Recent guest reviews

Beds were broken, killed bugs in room, Tv broken. Would not stay here again

Staff was great. The room wasn't as nice as advertised as on TV, but was comfortable.

No vending machines with water, no bottles of water available unless you were an elite member. Spring water and Styrofoam cups. Towels were dirty (I actually went to walmart and bought towels) and the room smelled. I picked up febreeze while at Walmart too. Staff was courteous.

The beds were extremely comfortable and the showers had great pressure. There was a bit of a smoke smell on the first floor, but the upper levels were smoke free. Breakfast was good and generally we had a great stay. Definitely worth the price!

Love our room. Very clean. Limited TV channels, this is a problem. As always loved their mattress.

5 minutes from destination, easy driving route. good value and served its purpose

The room was clean and comfortable. The people were very friendly

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.

nice room. good location. staff friendly. I will be staying here again

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

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.

Wonderful place to stay. Super nice and clean. The staff was nice and helpful. I will stay here again!

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.

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.

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.

Great staff, very friendly. The room could have been cleaner definitly not "homey." During my stay the family next door was smoking weed so the whole floor stunk! Overall it was good for the price, but I'll be staying somewhere else next time.

The location is great; right off the interstate and near restaurants. Friendly staff

It was a good value for this hotel. The staff was friendly and the room was pretty clean. Breakfast was OK.

Nice hotel to spend the night in to break up long travel. Kids loved the pool!

The rooms were very nice and clean and updated and all the furniture was matching they looked very nice. All the employees were very nice and helpful.
