My sister nephew and myself stayed. The night we got there at 1am there were 4 men standing outside talking about drugs. When we got upstairs there was dirt in our bed we had to change all sheets and blankets ourselves. I went down to get coffee the next morning poured my coffee and there was stuff floating in the...

My BFF & I stayed here during our girl's weekend. The staff was nice and helpful. We met a few other people who were staying at the hotel also, and they were very friendly. The hotel is right there by Two-Notch road, where EVERYTHING is, (restaurants, gas stations, the movies, the mall, the hwy). Our room was nice, nothing too... More

We stayed here a few years ago while attending basic training graduation and decided it would be a good place to stop on our way back from Disney. That was a mistake. 4 years ago we had a nice room that provided a decent night sleep. This past December I got out of the bed, grabbed what pillows I could... More

WARNING; this place was full of drug dealers and hookers. It was Masters week and all other hotels were sold out within @ 1 hour radius from Augusta and consequently we were only able to secure a room at this motel 6. BEWARE; when we pulled into the front entrance there were a number of questionable type of individuals "hanging... More

First impression was the party going on outside. A large group of intoxicated thugs running around the lobby screaming about the need for security cause someone just fired 2 shots. 13 hrs of driving, I just paid my $49, clutched the grip on my S&W .40 and proceeded to my room. How bad can it be. Just need sleep. Well,... More

The friendly staff was the only upside of this hotel. I had previously never stayed at a Motel 6 and certainly never will again. This property is dirty, dingy and and they nickel and dime everything. No facial tissues and the bedding was blood stained. No shampoo provided but you can vend a miniature bottle for $2.00. Wifi is available... More

I was very impressed with my experience at Motel 6 Columbia East from the front desk/ check in to the overall experience. The friendliness of the front desk personnel made me feel like I was home. the lobby and room was very clean. Thank you very much for a great experience.

This place wasnt great but wasnt the worst...It was on a very dark unlit road past another motel which wasnt very welcoming and when we got there, there were tons of people loitering. I was only checking my mom in here so I felt worried leaving her at first & staying across town for the BTC. But, the hotel staff... More

Stayed here for one night while attending a BCT graduation at Ft. Jackson. Very clean Motel 6. Personable staff. Well managed and convenient to the Interstate. Much better than most other Motel 6 operations I have used before. Paid $49 with tax. Soap provided but nothing else. Bring your own shampoo. Vending machines downstairs. Two 'Waffle Houses' within a mile... More
