Carolina University Inn, Columbia
Good3.0 / 5
Convenient to Univ of South Carolina
This is one of just a few reasonably priced hotels near the University of South Carolina. You can walk to the middle of campus in 5 minutes. While the hotel is a bit older than most, the rooms are comfortable and the people there are friendly and willing to answer any and all questions about the area.

Poor1.0 / 5
Anywhere else is better than this place.
This is one of the worst hotels I've ever stayed in. Dirty, rundown, and unhelpful staff. Not a great combo.

Good3.0 / 5
The staff was friendly, Room was clean, awesome location for us stay at for Freshman USC Orientation. I would recommend it rather than staying in the parent dorm for orientation. If you don't mind a 1 mile walk to campus you could easily walk. Breakfast was weak(mini muffins, fruit, coffee)
