Nice Hotel

I stayed there during a friend's wedding and it was conveniently located to the wedding venue and the staff was super friendly and efficient plus the rooms were very nice and clean. I would definitely stay there again if I had to be in the area.

One Night Only

Check in: We had a late check in and the woman working the front desk acted as if we were inconveniencing her and she was quite rude. Decent room for one night. Everything in the hotel seems very old and worn down. It is pet friendly which is good if you have pets, but not good if you are just trying to get a few hours of sleep before you finish the trip to your vacation destination and someone's dog continues to yip and yap. Thank goodness for the loud AC to drown that out! Amenities were OK. Was traveling with my infant son and needed to warm water for a bottle and when I opened the microwave it smelled like buttered popcorn. Bathroom was clean. Subpar hotel breakfast... Met need. Check out: Staff rude and unfriendly. Overall, my family was able to get a few hours of sleep before we continued our trip. We will not return to this hotel. I strongly believe I could find better quality for about the same price.

Quiet Time

I wish the Hotel had a traffic light entering and leaving EXCHANGE PL. It is the only hazard I encountered. The second shift staff were friendly, but the first shift front desk staff were like no smiles or greetings, I HATE MY JOB.

Trip to USC

My family and I stayed at the Country Inn & Suites by Carlson, Columbia, SC for the first time. Everything was fine except for the pullout couch. My son slept on it and he complained that it was uncomfortable beacuse he could feel the springs on it, other than that it was a pleasant experience.

Okay

This hotel was located in a great place for us (visiting Ft. Jackson for graduation). The staff were helpful, let us check in a bit early which was much appreciated. I would stay here again, though I did notice several things that were not what I expected from a Country Inn/Suites. 1) There was a strange smell in the room...not sure what could be done about it, and it wasn't terrible...just noticeable when you entered. 2) Fitness room has a total of 3 pieces of equipment and two of them were not working...it was also very hot in there, and didn't seem to be a way to turn on air, or even a fan in there. Also, the vending on the second floor is not really vending - no machines in there, just an ice maker. I went to the 3rd floor, and it was the same. Finally found a vending machine on the bottom floor, and when I put my quarters in, it told me it wasn't working :-( So...ended up going to the front desk to get my bottle of water...not a major deal, but not what you expect. I would stay here again if the price was right, but it was a bit disappointing.
