Close to Fort Jackson - NO Housekeeping Second Day!

Overall the hotel was close to Fort Jackson, and was comfortable. However: There was NO housekeeping on BOTH of my rooms the second day we were there! No beds made, trash emptied, bathroom cleaned, dirty towels removed, fresh towels left, etc. When brought to the managers attention (via email as she wasn't there in the mornings or evenings), all I received was a letter under my door, with a corporate answer and one night for one room reduced by $20.00 (we were there for 3 nights) for my inconvenience. There was NO attempt to contact me personally! That's why I gave them one star!

Great for Ft. Jackson graduation

Went to see my husband graduate from Ft. Jackson Army basic training. The location was great. You literally hop on the highway and go a few miles and you are at the base. The staff was okay. Not over friendly. Room was clean. Beds were very comfortable. Definitely would stay here again.

Great place to stay for Ft. Jackson Army basic graduation

First off the staff was friendly and very helpful. When I checked in, the lady gave me a map and directions to my husbands Army graduation at Ft. Jackson. It was literally a 5 minute drive from the hotel to the base. The room was very clean. The view wasn't great but didn't matter to me. There were many restaurants close. The beds were very comfortable. The complimentary breakfast was okay. Overall I liked it and it was great for the price.
