Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 90 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect! This is a terrific place to stay and I'll be sure to stay at a Staybridge Suites again. For this trip I used a free IHG night my first night here. The staff still treated me like I was a king. The spacious, smartly-designed room was very helpful for my business trip, and wi-fi worked very well. The software in the business center needs to be updated, but that was no big deal because I just used my own stuff in my room. The staff assigned me to the room that is closest to the front desk on the first floor, (115). This worked great for me as a business traveler, as I was up early each morning. I wouldn't recommend that room for vacationers who like to sleep in, just because it's close to where breakfast is served and it can get noisy during the social. I really enjoyed the convenience though, as well as easy interaction with other guests. Upon check in they gave me 500 IHG points just for showing up, then directed me to the free cookout social. My expectations at IHG properties continue to be high, and yet the properties repeatedly exceed those expectations. Well done! July 23, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Mistake staying here Overall the place is ok if was like a red roof in or budget hotel. Reserved a room with a door to seperate bedroom and living room. When i arived was advised none are available and gave me another room. I had been out of the country for three weeks and my girlfriend was leaving the next day for a month. We both have kids so the door was kind of important but no such luck. The breakfast was ok but compared to the same priced competitors it is poor. Lastly the pool area need some fresh air coming in as too hot and chlorine high for sure if stay in there. I did like the gym and the laundry area as they were both nice. July 23, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Extended Stay The hotel grounds were great for our stay. We were in a group of about 40 and had room to hang out, talk, and bbq. July 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great place! Great hotel, I'll be back. Staff was warm, service was prompt, location was prime, and the room was immaculate. July 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great We love this hotel. Just wish it was in walking distance to shops, restaurants, etc. It has everything that you need and the front desk people are wonderful! July 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great bed and great service I would stay here again and recommend this hotel to others. July 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Sanctuary After a Busy Day This Hotel is often hard to get into, due to it's excellent performance. While the location is on a very busy intersection, and the traffic noise can be noticeable at times, the staff are excellent in their desire to welcome and accommodate you. Rick at the front desk is superb. He always has a smile and remembers my name, and goes out of his way to make sure I am taken care of. I am always recognized for my IHG status, and offered all the amenities that go with it. Because it is in the heart of downtown Columbia, the social makes it so easy to kick back and enjoy a wonderful meal, and just "stay home" for the evening. Also, due to it's popularity, it is often hard to find adequate seating at the breakfast and social, and the kitchen staff is often hard pressed to keep up with food for the demand. I try to stay here every trip I make to Columbia. You should too--but save a seat for me at the social !! June 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best in Columbia I am very familiar with the area as I spent a great deal of time here with my grandparents as a child/teen/young adult and then as a student @ Carolina. This hotel is in the heart of the city near all of the awesome downtown restaurants and night life. The staff is SUPERB! They were kind and polite and it seemed genuine. Everyone that I encountered during all three of my stays seemed happy, not a fake happy either. I highly recommend this property and I will be back for business and we may return for family time too. June 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great place to stay. Very clean and well kept. Only down sides were the AC did not seen to follow the thermostat setting and the bed was on the hard side. Other then these minor things everything else was great. June 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great time Confortable beds and we had a great stay. We were there for a swim meet at the college and it was a great location. The kitchen was awsome for cooking for hungry swimmers! June 23, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Outstanding Decor Don't be fooled by the small hotel lobby area as the hotel has great amenities. The access to the interstate and downtown Columbia cannot be beat by other area hotels. The room was a great size for one and could probably accommodate a family of three. The king-sized bed was comfortable however I prefer having two king-sized pillows as to four small pillows. June 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A nice place to stay I would recommend Staybridge Suites to everyone. They know how to treat people with respect. The hotel is clean and updated. Would definitely stay again. June 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Helpful and Friendly Staff Stayed here for 5 nights. Originally 3 night stay. Rick (front desk) was able to secure us for 3 more nights due to work issues for us. Their whole team there is great. Breakfast in the morning was great. Always a good variety. Dinner (social time) also great. Staff sure does know how to make someone feel like they are always there first priority. Always asking if there is something else they could do for you. I even was able to get to know some of the housekeeping staff who kept our room clean and well stocked. My husband has already booked this hotel for the next month for work. So we will always book this hotel when in Columbia. Thank you again for your hospitality. June 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Would stay here again Was here only one night for a concert so wasn't at the hotel very much, just to sleep but I was glad to be able to come back to it. Very clean, nice rooms, everything I needed. I would stay at another Staybridge without hesitation. June 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mr. Kevin Wilson My wife and I stay at this location quite frequently on business and have stayed there at least once per month for the last two years. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly and try to make your stay very enjoyable! June 3, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Overnight stay As I said in the questionnaire, the person who made the biggest impact on my husband and I was the 'Scottish' named gentleman on reception, he was first class. June 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Home away from home Husband says this is the only hotel chain we will stay at from here on out. Centrally located to everything and walking distance to a lot of activities. Very friendly front desk staff who went above and beyond on every detail, even calling local attractions for us for more information. Check in at 3 but our room was ready at noon. We were in a 2 bedroom king suite and it felt like a small apartment with just about everything we needed. Would have been nice to have a dish drain when we hand washed dishes and housekeeping never left us a dish rag so we used our extra washcloths. They did clean the room daily and made it look spotless replenishing our towels but they never restocked any of the complimentary items such as coffee, popcorn, or lotions, Our room was at the end of the building and we were right next to the main highway so traffic noise was significant but obviously not every room in the hotel will be facing that same direction. We didn't hear anything from our neighbors above, below or beside us which was perfect because we have 2 toddlers which means if we couldn't hear them, they couldn't hear us. That right there is a definite selling point for our next stay. Breakfast and supper were very good and had a nice variety. However the food ran out at supper so some nights it ended earlier then 7:30. The heated pool had a broken heater so it was freezing cold which was a big disappointment seeing as that was a major selling point on reserving this hotel. We were planning on tiring the kids out nightly by letting them swim but the water was so cold it would have been cruel to take them in the pool! We did choose to do laundry but over half the washers and dryers were broke so you really had to play a waiting game for machines. Overall even with the few setbacks it is well worth the money and with all the extras they provide, it really does feel like you're staying at home and not a hotel! Drawback outside of the stay itself is we did not know about their rewards program nor was it ever mentioned to us by any staff or reservation member. That being said we now cannot claim our stay and receive credit because we signed up after our visit. That's a lot of points and perks we lost considering we were there for just under a week. Not a fan of this policy, especially because it was not offered prior to checking in. I think you should be able to claim a visit within a set amount of time after check-out. April 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by All great We cannot say more than the full marks for all aspects. Thank you and we hope to return to staybridge in the near future. April 6, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hot Water Very nice facility, great cookout, nice staff & social atmosphere. Only negative was the water temperature is far too cool. Unable to get it to a "hot" state even when turned full on to hot. Water temp stayed warm. Also I had to remove debris or a water saver item in the shower head in order to get adequate flow so I did not have to hug the front shower wall to bathe. March 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wonderful weekend! Our first time staying at Staybridge Suites, and have to say, it was very very nice! Very clean, comfortable, friendly, & very helpful! Will definitely stay again! February 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by accomodations enjoyed my stay. staff was diligent. good location. will return January 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Lovely Place to Stay I really enjoyed staying here and the breakfast is wonderful. The only negative thing was the curtains. They are fixed to where they don't close and the light comes through the sheers plus I feel uncomfortable undressing with the drapes open. Front desk was very nice and we had a great stay. January 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Service Rick has been so helpful since I have been staying. The lady that works in the morning that prepares the breakfast is a sweet lady. The lady that works at night to prepare for the night dinner is always so helpful. January 4, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Overall Nice Place to Stay The staff was friendly and outgoing. The room was clean and comfortable. It was considerably more expensive than other local hotels but we chose to stay there because we have 2 small dogs and they bill themselves as " Pet Friendly ". Disappointed in the "pet friendly " , as there is really no good place to walk or exercise your pet. The Free breakfast in the morning was acceptable , nothing fancy but the coffee was good. Kind of disappointed for the amount of money we spent December 31, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome Whenever I need a hotel for business or pleasure, the Staybridge is always my choice for a hotel. The staff is always pleasant and willing to ensure that you have a positive experience during your stay. The hotel is within close proximity for dining and leisure activites. December 29, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Home away from home for the holidays We stayed here for 4 days during the long Thanksgiving weekend. We were comfortable and felt like we were at home. Plenty of room, accommodating staff and good food. The hot breakfast was wonderful and the cherry on top was the weekday cocktail hour with complimentary beer/wine and food. Even offered off-site fitness facility guest passes which we did use. Will definitely go back when we are in town again! December 6, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great service Everything with my stay was perfect. I will see you again. November 25, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by excellent staff in every aspect I was staying there for over 3 months. From the start of staying there I was always greeted with smiles and a warm home like atmosphere. The staff were always happy to see you and even learn the guests names. I was fortunate to have family come for a visit a few times and again the staff greeted them with open arms. The meals were always good and always plenty to eat. I have already recommeded the StayBridge to fellow coworkers and others. Thanks for making my stay as close to home as you could. Steve November 18, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by clean & quiet My husband and I needed a getaway. And you provided it. The room was very comfortable and super clean. We enjoyed our stay very much. The staff was very friendly and the breakfast was a bonus. Thank you for a lovely stay. November 16, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Overall a good stay Overall had a nice stay at this hotel. It's new and the rooms have up-to-date furnishings; it's a clean facility. Stayed for three nights and we didn't get our room cleaned after the second night. Reported it to the front desk when we returned to the hotel at the end of a long day and someone brought up some clean towels. When I reported my dissatisfaction at checkout, someone followed me out the door to claim that housekeeping tried three times throughout the afternoon, but they said a DND sign was on the door. This was absolutely not true, because I removed it when I departed the room in the morning, and the magnet was still on my refrigerator when I returned at 8 that night. The breakfast is nice, except when large parties staying at the hotel comandeer the entire dining area and linger for a very long time, preventing other guests from enjoying their breakfast. Not much you can do about that I guess. November 15, 2013
