    Great hotel and location

    Extremely friendly staff, hotel room was spotless and decorated so uniquely. Lots of places to walk our pooch too. I’ve stayed at another Graduate in Athens GA and had a similar experience. I highly recommend.

    Double charged for room

    BringFido charged me for the room then Graduate charged me for the room. I'm still waiting the manager of the hotel to contact me. I'm still waiting for the refund.

    After 2 very sketchy places, we found the Graduate, and it's AMAZING! Staff is dog friendly, and room is super clean and cute. Do NOT stay anywhere else... stay here.

    Great welcome for our pups!

    The staff here did an excellent job to explain the pet procedures and made a big fuss over our fur kids. They proactively assigned us a first floor room for ease and were very thoughtful.

    Lovely setting

    It was a very pretty hotel. Lighting in the room was lacking. There was a cost for parking.

    Wonderful Hotel

    Hotel and staff are very dog friendly and the accommodations are EXCELLENT. We particularly love this hotel’s location right adjacent to USC where our children attend school which makes it very convenient for when we visit. That said, this is where we would stay in Columbia even if we didn’t have students at USC —- it’s that nice!
