Not too bad

Didn't really have any complaints. Just not what I expected from La Quinta. But this building isn't particularly new, so that could explain it. But overall not a bad choice. Cheaper than the other hotels in the area and is a great hotel chain. 11 flat rate can fair to Ft. Jackson from here. Great spot

Fort Jackson Graduation

Stayed one night at this hotel for a badic training graduation at Fort Jackson. The room was pretty clean and well organised no complains there, however the hotel was rather difficult to find since it is in the back mushroomed by other hotels. There is also another La Quinta in the vicinity which only compounds the already existing mass confussion. The room I was given was very close to the elevator shaft which rattles the room and it was rather hard to sleep. The WiFi is terrible dont plan on getting anything work or school related done while you are there.

Fantastic Staff

Room was clean and comfortable. The Staff was amazing! So friendly and nice and helpful. They really made me want to move to South Carolina. A+ all the way! I always try to stay with La Quinta even when I don't travel with my little dog, just because they are pet friendly. I have never had problems with yappy dogs or messy rooms because of this policy. I would much prefer a motel that is pet friendly than one with wall to wall children. LOL!

Close to Fort Jackson

Staff were helpful and friendly. They gave us maps to airport and also restaurant information/directions. Breakfast was simple, but good. Proximity to highway and Fort Jackson was perfect for our needs.
