We stayed at the Econo Lodge while visiting my son at Fort Jackson for Graduation. It is very well located to Fort Jackson and the surrounding area. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was also very well maintained and cleaned

This place is terrible. All around bad stay. Lots of workers stay there as well as it had police there for multiple calls the night we stayed beds and rooms were nasty. Hardly any parking. Don't believe me then take the risk. And it was way overpriced.

This hotel was nothing like the pictures. My room was horrific with wooden boards as a bed frame, drywall peeling in the restroom, and the door to my room (108) look as if it was kicked in previously! Please do not stay here!

We were checked in quickly by a very polite and friendly woman. She read my online requests (refrig/microwave,... More
