Staff is genuinely concerned about your needs. No lukewarm repsonses.

It was a very pleasant stay n just outside the downtown area!

Hotel was located in a great spot. 5 mins from Ft. Jackson. We booked this hotel because to attend family day and our daughter BCT GRADUATION. Hotel was quiet and best of all is right across ftom a Walmart and McDonald's. I will most definitely stay here with family again.

I was only there for one night, but it was wonderful. The room was nice, the kitchen area looked as if it was recently upgraded, the bed was comfortable and the staff was nice and being on garner ferry rd meant restaurants and stores were in walking distance. I will say that the few negatives were that my room door was difficult to open, but it wasn't major. The second thing is that a lot of the guests are there to attend soldier's bct graduation so it was always people walking around but once in my room I didn't hear anything.

We were a quite surprised that when we checked in the hotel did not have any of the rooms as described by our registration form we did on line. We were told we would have 2 queen beds and a roll away bed, but the room had only 2 double beds. The hotel informed us they did not have any rooms with this description. We made it work by putting our 4 year old on blankets on the floor. (We had sent in the information that there were five in our party. We will probably not stay here again with this number of people. The rooms would be very nice as they were clean.

The staff was great! All of them. The room was large and comfortable.

This is a great place for a family to be comfortable in. Our room was large and clean. The staff was very nice.

Checkin is very slow. $75 pet fee. No continental breakfast. There are certainly better choices, but we booked at the last minute so had to take what was available. Never again !

We stayed for a week for my son's graduation ceremony @ Ft. Jackson ,,,our stayed was okay ,nice location ,we spent time walking around and got the chance to take the bus to downtown ..my only complain since I am kind of short the sink in the bathroom is too high that I needed a step stool,lol

The rooms were clean and nice. The staff was polite and helpful. Relatively close to downtown and stadium. Will stay here again if going to another concert at the stadium.

It is close to Ft Jackson (driving), so getting back and forth over graduation was painless. Free gym, laundry service, and in suite kitchens made staying affordable. It was good enough that I will always have a preference for this chain.

Hotel room was small but clean snd has everything u need front desk are friendly. Close to the base and airport very convenient

Very friendly staff , clean, enjoyed it very much , I will go again anytime .

I made hotel reservations to spend some alone time with my fiancè after he graduated BCT at Fort Jackson. The staff was extremely welcoming as soon as we walked in and the room and amenities were fantastic. Would definitely reccommend this hotel to other Army families coming into town for Family day and Graduation. :)

Great location, Price and Staff! I would definitely recommend this hotel to other families coming for a fort Jackson graduation!

Hotel is clean, staff excellent, it is considered extended stay so maid service is weekly. We were there for three days, hence no maid service. It is about 10 minutes from gate 2 of Fort Jackson. The room was equipped with a full fridge, stove, microwave and dishwasher. Everything we needed was near by.

great hotel! very good rates close to army base,great staff

I went to Ft.Jackson to see him graduate and spend time with him. Your hotel was one step ahead of me at everything except ONE! I would get back late and your handicap parking spaces always had cars that didn't belong there!!!!!!One night your security guard really helped e out by getting that person to move his SUV.Hats off to him.

Went to Ft. Jackson Boot Camp Graduation to see son. Very close to base. Very clean. We are from Texas so he really missed barbecuing. We really enjoyed the patio with the barbecue grills, he was able to barbecue, relax and enjoy the outdoors. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We look forward to staying at Candlewood Hotels again.

Everything was clean, but beds were on the soft side.
