Convenient

Convenient to Gate 1 of Fort Jackson, can get to family day, graduation day quickly. Convenient to town. This is an older facility, and worth its price. Bed was comfy, warm, room clean enough, bathroom spotless. Facility shows its age, but, hard to beat for the price and convenience to the Fort.

Sons graduation getaway

We stayed in this hotel during our sons graduation and family day. We found it to be quite run down and a bit dirty. Not everything in the rooms we booked worked properly. One night came back and our rom key didn't work so had to go to the office to have it reset. Not what you want to have to do at the end of a busy day. All in all at the end of the day it was just a place to sleep at night, shower in the morning and go about our day. If we ever head back that way we will choose different accommodations.

Very expensive

The room was too small, the restroom too. The door key did not work well. In general the hotel looks in bad condition. The computer in reception was not working.

" Not Worth The Price"

it was to pricey for it quality> a friend book a room at the extended stay which has better quality, and a more comfortable setting at the price of a little over forty dollars.With a pool and the same distance.!

Not the best bang for the buck

The only benefit to booking here is its location to Fort Jackson if you are going down for BCT Graduation. Other than that, the staff barely spoke English and not friendly. The rooms were adequate, though very small. The door to our room did not close properly and lacked a security lock. All it had was the typical swing arm. You could also tell that the key cards had been reused instead of deprogrammed and reprogrammed as arrows were drawn on them and worn. Beds were very uncomfortable and pillows were extremely flat. Sits just feet from the roadway, noise was extreme.
