Last Minute Surprise Deal

4.4 on September 06, 2012

We tried the downtown Marriott, Marriott Courtyard, and Fairfield Inn, quoting disappointing prices. We were surprised to find more for less in a local boutique inn.

Romantic Southern Charm

We spent one night at he Inn at Claussen's and were extremely please with everything. The inn had originally been a bakery and still retained just enough of it's heritage and character after being converted to a contemporary boutique hotel. We stayed in the bridal loft suite which was quite spacious with its living room and full bath downstairs and a spiral staircase up to the bedroom and half bath. The furnishings and decor were fashionable and tastefully done and the resulting look was breathtakingly romantic. The room and bath were impeccably clean. Every staff member was friendly and eager to see that our needs were met and that we enjoyed our stay. We had complimentary wine and cheese before heading out for dinner at Garibaldi's Restaurant which was just a short stroll outside the door. The next time we are in Columbia we absolutely will return. Loved it!!!

Great value!

A lovely boutique hotel in a great location. Our room was wonderful - very spacious with the bedroom upstairs in the loft. This would be a perfect base for an extended stay for business or leisure travel. Make sure you eat at Mr. Friendly's New Southern right next door.

Best night's sleep in a while!

We came to Columbia on Master's weekend, not realizing that Columbia would be just about booked up that weekend as well! We lucked upon this Inn online, and took a chance - and I am SO glad we did. The bed was extremely comfortable, parking was great, and though as we walked in late Saturday night, we could hear parties next door on the college campus, it didn't bother us at all in the room. The staff was excellent, and the whole place was very comfortable. We will be returning to town for a wedding, and recommending the guests stay here! The parfait for breakfast was delicious - a great appetizer for going out for a big breakfast later.

Amazing Getaway!

The Claussen was the perfect place for a romantic evening. We stayed in a loft room with a spiral staircase and a four poster bed. It was quaint like a Bed and Breakfast but private like a hotel. I absolutely adore historic places and it was awesome seeing the old Bakery being turned into a wonderful place for guests to stay. I browsed a lot of hotels in town, including the Sheraton and the Claussen by far exceeded my expectations with cost, comfort and quality. Didn't think I would be successful in finding a place to stay that didn't have that cold hotel room feel. We will definitely be making more romantic getaways there!
