"Better Expectation"
I have stayed at a LaQuinta before and the room I had was very nice. This particular Inn reminded me of a Motel 6. I really expected the place to be a Holiday Inn at a cheaper price. the room to be bigger and a little more upscale. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable so that was a plus.

"Hotel stay for family affair"
Hotel was about what I expected given the previous ratings of other guests, the location and the cost. It's unfortunate that it is the guests that can ultimately effect one's hotel experience. The hotel itself is in fair condition but could use a renovation project as well as or a very thorough and detailed cleaning.

"Fine short stay"
My wife and I drove in from Charlotte NC and stayed her to attend Parents Weekend at USC in Columbia. Access to/from I-77, I-20, and SC-277 could not be easier, and it's quick drive into the center of Columbia. The lobby is tiny, but the room was comfy, clean, and nicely appointed. The free carb-only breakfast was not our style, but we took the short walk around the corner to have a fine inexpensive breakfast served by a delightful waitress at the Waffle House. We would definitely stay here again.

"Disregard for non smoking reservation"
Reserved non smoking room and walked into very smoky room. There were also dogs and cats barking and meowing on the hall. When I complained about room the receptionist offered to spray it which would not have solved problem. Finally was moved to another room

"A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing"
This hotel is way overpriced. We stayed here because we have a dog and cat and were passing through on a cross country move. I would never stay here again. The entire place wreaks of cigarette smoke. It's grimy and the mattresses sag down ridiculously in the middle. No joke... the middle of the mattress was at least 5 inches lower than the sides. Thankfully it was a cooler day because I don't think our AC worked.

"The Best!"
The best motel I have ever stayed in. The T.V. Was of highest quality (Samsung), the A/C was digitally controlled and maintained set temperature, the furniture looked new with easy to open drawers, the beds were comfortable, the complimentary breakfast was the best ever with many choices. Loved our stay at this La Quinta! It was a quiet location.

I got this hotel for my mother in law and her friend who came to visit. It is good for the price, AC works, good breakfast, pool, and accommodating staff. However, the halls smelled so bad. I think it may be bc pets are allowed, which is fine...just stinky.

"Adequate"
This as an older hotel that looked like it had some renovations done, but it did not compare favoribly to other LaQuinta hotels we have stayed at. Dirt was noticed on the floor as soon as we entered our room, the ice maker on our floor did not work, and a mouse was seen in the dining area when we had our continental breakfast.

"Hotel OK, some of its' guests, questionable."
Overall, it was an uneventful stay, relatively quiet, which is what I needed for that day. My only real complaint was when I stepped from the elevator onto the second floor, I was hit in the face with the most pungent smell of marijuana. I guess people don't make an effort to hide that sort of thing anymore.

"Hotel stinks !"
As we entered our non smoking room, we were hit by the unmistaken odor of stale cigarette smoke. (Room 326) I reported it to the front desk and asked if we had been given a smoking room by mistake. They said we had a non smoking room and the smoking rooms started at room 330. I asked if the supplied ash trays in there smoking rooms and they said yes. I told them that we had found an ash tray of theirs in our room. The front desk attendant said that he would report it to his manager. No other accommodations were offered and no adjustment to our bill was made. The "breakfast" was less than satisfactory. (green hard boiled eggs were the only protein available) I usually don't mind "ruffing it " a little, but this was too much. I paid for 4 rooms that day (326,322, 312, & 224) as I and my golf partners made our way to our destination. It will probably be the last time I stay at a La Quinta.

"Clean comfy overnight"
My daughter and I stayed here one night prior to a campus visit to Univ of South Carolina. It suited our needs perfectly, as it was an easy drive getting to the hotel from I-77 (we flew into Charlotte) and in the morning it was just as easy getting to downtown Columbia via I-20 and SC277. The room was clean, the bed was comfy, and free parking was ample and close. We did not try the included breakfast so I can't comment on it. The only minor glitch was that there were no hangers in the closet area. (Why do people steal hangers?)

"Very pleasantly surprised"
It was fantastic! I've never stayed at a La Quinta before but if they are all like this one, I'm going to go out of my way to stay at them more often! The outside looks a little dingy but the inside was very clean. The staff were extremely nice and polite and it didn't seem forced, they were naturally good people. The room was very big and comfortable with a nice desk and comfortable chair. The TV was very new and was ACTUALLY HD versus most hotels where it's not as clear as HD. The bed was very comfortable (we brought our own throw blanket and they made the bed with that on it, I loved that!) The bathroom was updated and there was a lot of water pressure. The location is fantastic, literally a minute to I-20. We were down for Masters week and it was perfect. Great place to stay!

The hotel was good but I had a bad experience with my debt card being compromised an hour after I used it at the hotel the preson at the desk was the last time I used my card before I went to lunch with my son who was graduating from the Army . The fraud charges started at 10 am we went to lunch about 12:15 pm that's when I found out when my card was declined at the restaurant .I called the card company to find out they closed my card. I got back home with little or no money from SC.

Perfect location.... Very nice staff. Night security guard was very nice and helpful. I got a non smoking room, but could smell smoke in the hallway. Made me sick. I think all non smoking rooms should be on the same floor. Drink machine should be kept full at all times. Water pressure could've been stronger. Other than that, it was an enjoyable stay.

"Good and bad"
I was very pleased with the hotel location near a gas station and PLENTY of food options. I was also very pleased that I was able to bring my dog. There was only a tiny bit of areas that the dog could use the restroom. There were no clean-up bags available, which meant there were dog bombs that needed avoiding. The breakfast was okay, yummy hot waffles, and the rest were breads, make your own grits and oatmeal, cereal... more 'continental' style breakfast. (No frills) The staff was VERY kind and friendly during my 3 day stay, but my room was not as clean as I would of liked upon arriving. The fridge was full of food from the previous guest. and the freezer was iced over so badly it eliminated about 33% of the fridges usage. In the drawers there were card holders (3 total) from previous guests) as well as a bill from a previous guest. The room was not fully vacuumed with candy under one chair and dog hair and dust bunnies around the room. Under the bed was a plane ticket from months ago. The bathroom had hair on the floor and in the shower, mold around the bathtub stopper, as well as a male sized toenail clipping greeting me on the floor. I did not complain. I felt I 'got what I paid for' and it was my fault for booking a three day stay so late that the nicer area hotels were full. The noise level was acceptable and the stay was decent, especially for the price. My dog was happy and I let out a heavy sigh, cleaned up and took it for what it was. Those are the facts of my stay.

Don't know why it is called "Ft. Jackson." Not really that convenient to the Base. Bed overly soft - bad for tender backs. One employee in the morning to check out and maintain the inadequate "breakfast bar." Just not a great experience. Would have thought more of a LaQuinta!

"Nice dog friendly hotel"
We were traveling from Florida to West Virginia. Needed to stay the night at a dog friendly hotel. The price was good as LaQuinta does not add a dog fee. The rooms were clean and good for the price. We stayed at same hotel one our way home also. The breakfast bar was adequate. Nothing fancy but did include waffles. The staff was helpful when needed. On way home, we actually were able to use a coupon that we picked up along the way which really made the stay real economical.
