Good Location - USC

Pros: The staff was friendly an dthe room was clean.
Location: There are a lot of restaurants and stores however at first the neighborhood looks run down but as you look around it is just rebuilding.
The staff at the hotel was very helpful and friendly. The location is excellent for getting to and from the University of South Carolina. The hotel is right off the highway and we liked it.

5 miles from downtown town Columbia, SC.

Our visit was in Oct 2015 for one night. The hotel staff were friendly and checkin/checkout was a breeze.The hotel looked clean but could definitely use some updating, like the hall carpet was worn and the lobby wasn't to inviting. The bed was comfortable and we got a good night's rest.The room had a small frig,microwave,coffee pot and hair drier. I feel as though we got a decent hotel for a reasonable price considering other downtown hotels required a two night stay and $200 plus per night.From this location we got to the colonial life arena really easily by using GPS using alternative route.

Won't stay again or recommend Ramada

We felt the hotel was dirty, unfriendly staff and poorly maintained. No towels at the pool for two days. We asked 3 times for towels. Bathroom was nasty, and toilet was broken. No continental breakfast as advertised and price was higher than advertised. We thought Ramada was a higher end hotel, but we have had far better at motel 6.

Ramada Limited - What the name implies

Our stay was limited to 1 night. The hotel was limited. Two stories, no elevator. It was clean. It was quiet. The breakfast was the usual waffle, yogurt, mini-banana nut muffins, fruit and little cereal boxes. The coffee was not bad. Bed was comfortable. TV was older model, but worked fine. The stay was fine, and I would stay there again, for the price. Staff was very friendly, if under-staffed a bit. Easy access from highway, too. Convenient, too, if you know Columbia at all. The price and the convenience might be the two strongest points they have.

Good for the money

The front desk was friendly and the rooms were clean. A little outdated, but a good deal for the money. Free wireless. I would stay here again.

Great Experience

The hotel was clean and the beds where very comfortable. The breakfast was great especialy the home made waffels. The location was very handy to the airport and Fort Jackson. We where there for my son's graduation.

Liked it a lot for the money!

04/03/09-04/06/09 Just came back from a stay there and I liked it a lot! The rooms was clean, the carpet was also clean (big deal in my book) I had the non smoking room with king size bed and it was comfortable. Had a coffee table and small writing desk. Microwave was clean and small fridge kept your drinks cool. Only minor thing I can say was the window room faced a brick wall! Would have been nice to have view with all the flowers that was in bloom outside... Like I said, minor. Had to run up and down stairs 2 nights to the front desk and get my key to work. Other than those minor things; Price was reasonable and I would recommend the stay there.
