Recently renovated, this all-suite hotel offers plenty of amenities that all families will love. There’s the free food offerings, like the hot buffet breakfast each morning, and the snacks and beverages each Tuesday through Thursday at the evening Social. Then there’s the indoor swimming pool and spa, plus board games like Battleship, Candy Land, and Chutes & Ladders. And, when needed, there’s even the free guest self-laundry facilities.

This Staybridge Suites checked every one of my "need in a hotel" boxes, things like plenty of available AC and USB outlets, an exhaust fan in the bathroom, hangers that actually come out of the closet, room climate control that really works, an incredibly comfortable bed, pillows, and linens, a full-size refrigerator with an icemaker (!), and so much more. The room was very spacious and didn't feel at all crowded. The breakfast buffet had a lot of choices and something for everyone. The staff is helpful and very friendly. Every area of the hotel is clean and lovely. This is my 4th year coming to Columbia for the Roots festival but my first time staying at Staybridge Suites. It's the only hotel I'll ever stay at from now on. I'm already looking forward to my next visit. Thanks for an incredible 4 nights, Staybridge!
(A note about location: If you're coming for the Roots & Blues & BBQ festival at Stephen Lakes Park, you can't beat the location of this hotel. Take a right out of the driveway, another right at the end of Keene Street onto Broadway, and a short drive to the park. It couldn't be easier or more convenient. Also close to downtown.)
Highly recommend!! My boyfriend and I booked a night at Staybridge Suites on our cross country road trip and were amazed with our experience. The hotel itself is very clean, comfortable, and easy to locate - worth the value for sure. We arrived super late at night around 1:30am and were greeted with a smile by James, who was sooooo helpful, friendly, and accommodating to us. He answered every question/concern we had and made us feel at home immediately. I can't sing his praises enough, he should get a raise!! The other staff members we interacted with in the morning, Jordan and the GM, were super sweet as well. We will be coming back and recommending to all our friends staying in Columbia. A++ 10/10
