2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

My daughter and I came for a graduation at Ft. Jackson and did not know the area so we picked the Country Inn & Suites because of its looks from a photo on the internet. From the moment we stepped into the hotel to the moment we left we have been very pleased with our choice. The hotel staff was so pleasant and always with a smile. There is coffee, tea and coco in the lobby 24/7. When we walked through the lobby doors of the Inn it was so homey and inviting. Our room was very clean and welcoming. The bed was a little soft for my taste but my daughter loved her hers. The outdoor grounds where the smokers went is kept clean and maintained several times a day. The hotel has a business room that supplies a computer and a printer. How nice it was to check in for our flight and print our boarding passes. I would love to return for another visit and to stay at the Country Inn.

Overall experience was great. Breakfast was just ok. There are a lot of construction people that stay there so the parking lot was always full of big trucks which made parking difficult at times. When I first arrived some of those workers were sitting on one of those trucks at the front entrance drinking and having a social event but they didn't bother anyone.

We stayed for one night on a college tour. The hotel was clean and the staff was great.

It was unfortunately that we were at an intersection and who was it with no blackout curtains.

The staff was so personable and friendly! I felt like home when i was there. They greeted me by my first name every time i walked in. The breakfast was ran by just 1 person who was so sweet and kind and helpful. Only thing was that the hut tub was down the whole 5 days we were there. Other then that, it was a perfect stay and we will be returning every time we travel back to Columbia SC.

Clean room,comfortable bed. Good breakfast. Will stay here next time I am in town

Only problem I had was when I took a bath, you can see the stains in the toilet. The room was not clean once, even though I stayed for 4 days. Everything else was wonderful. Staff was awesome

Awesome place to stay , came down to fish Lake Murray and couldn't find any cabins or lake houses that were reasonable so we stayed here and everything was great from the staff to the rooms , we would leave the hotel around 5:30 am and they already had fresh coffee made . Will be going back .

Enjoyed suite, as it allowed us to relax when we arrived early in afternoon.

My hotel room was filthy, smelly, dirty, unclean bathroom. I noticed the hotel elevator was dirty also, some of the similar issues to my room.

Everything is just the way I like it. Bed,TV, work station or just sitting enjoying the night was all good. Breakfast was great and the people are the best

we went for our daughters 13th birthday. she and I were doing the passport to purity study. we needed privacy. this hotel had a separate bedroom, which was perfect! great weekend!

We stayed here for the University of South Carolina Parent's Weekend trip, and the venue was great. Quick check in, easy access from I-26, and only 15 minutes to downtown with moderate traffic. The room was large, clean and comfortable. 5he breakfast was well stocked and good. The pool/hot tub area also looked nice, though we neglected to bring our swim suits so we couldn't use it. This hotel is also very close to almost any type of restaurant you could want, as well as shopping. We will definitely be staying here again.

The hotel staff where very friendly each time I entered. Rooms where clean and grounds looked great.

This hotel was great! Friendly at check-in, very clean, great breakfast and a very attentive hostess. We had to stay somewhere for a night as the water was shut off in our condo building.

Staff did not check id's or credit card to check in. Night staff too busy watching TV in the breakfast room to take care of guests. Rooms were dirty at check in. One shining star is the weekday breakfast staff person.

The Hotel was at the perfect location, quite, away from the interstate and close to restaurants.

The evening staff sat around watching TV, while claiming to be too busy to folliw up on a guest'request. A large pile of towels which had been used to clean up after someone being sick, sat in the hallway all night. When requested to take care if these towels, I was told they were too busy. The only good thing about my stay here was the breaskfast staff during week. what a treasure.

Error was made at check in, however it was corrected and we received an upgrade in room type for our inconvenience which worked out better. Customer service was excellent.
