If you just want a hotel close to Ft. Jackson with many restaurants and stores nearby, this hotel is perfect.

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants
Cons: older hotel in need of remodeling, smaller rooms
The room is average, a little smaller than typical double rooms, but was clean. However, we soon discovered the drain in our shower was clogged, the ironing board was broken and we woke up to a roach in the shower(not that uncommon for SC). When we informed the staff, they were quick to fix our problems, and we didn't encounter any other issues the rest of our stay. The hotel is convenient and does have the indoor pool, but could really use some updating as far as rooms and amenities go.

We accommodate many guests each evening, and we strive to make their night’s stay a satisfying one. The principal goal of our hotel is to provide dependable service to all of our guests at reasonable prices. But, it’s only through their eyes that we can accurately assess the quality of the accommodations and services we provide. Kind Regards Sherry Anders General Manager

location misleading as advertised

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet
The location is about 30 minutes from Fort Jackson.So was disappointed with the long drive and wait in traffic to get to graduation.1/2 mile is not correct and thats why I choose this motel.Room was ok remote didn't work well and fan in bathroom broke bed too soft.The breakfast was good and staff were helpful and friendly.Excerise room at my house was better than theirs.Wish someone would have submitted honest commit for me to read before i chose to stay there.

Very discussed

Upon arrival at the hotel, I realized I had not packed a tube of toothpaste; I went to the front desk explaining my situation, that I had forgotten my toothpaste and also if there was somewhere I could get toothpaste to buy. I was told there was nothing he could do. Anyway, walked over to another hotel with my 5 year old daughter in tow and bought a toothpaste. When i was ready to check out, I was reading the bochure, and it mentioned that they provide shampoo, deoderant amd toothpaste in the event you do not have. I then went downstairs and ask why is I was not offered the toothpaste when I told them I did not have any. I was told I did not directly ask for a toothpaste and they only offer if you ask directly. I let them know that was not good customer service because they could have simply said here is a tube of toothpaste, I don't know in what other way I could have asked for toothpaste. I tought they were extremely selfish and inconsiderate. I would never stay there again.

Basic Graduation Stay

Would stay again. Hotel and room was clean and comfortable; however, the carpet needs to be cleaned. Free breakfast was good. Very convenient to Ft Jackson.

Basic Training Graduation Stay

Hotel was disappointing. I've stayed at Comfort Inn and had suites in KY and PA. and enjoyed them. I paid for what was advertised as a suite but it wasn't. Room just had a small partition with a small sofa that was not a sofa bed. Not very clean, A/C was very noisy and there was a security light right outside the window preventing you from darkening the room at night. The quilts actually seemed soiled. Breakfast was a joke as you couldn't get a seat and the selection limited. The waffle maker was in front of the coffee and you had to hurdle people to get coffee I was very disappointed. The front desk personnel were however helpful.

Great experience

Stayed here for son's graduation at Fort Jackson. Very convenient location, close to highway, also close to restaurants and supermarket. Staff was friendly and very helpful. Room was clean, bed was comfortable, tv was great. Continental breakfast was awesome - better than most. Pool was clean and washer/dryer was very helpful with my son's mound of laundry. When dryer was broken, manager let us use the staff dryer instead of having to go to laundromat we didn't even ask, he just offered. Would definitely recommend and would stay there again if ever in the Columbia area.

Close to Ft. Jackson

The hotel was excellent and very clean. The comp breakfast was nice. We stayed at the Comfort Suites for graduation from Basic Training. The travel time to Ft. Jackson was at the very most 10 minutes. The hotel employees were very friendly and helpful with recommendations for dining options. FYI--on graduation day, leave early for Ft. Jackson, and you will have a stress free morning. Make sure you have a picture ID to gain access to the Base.
