“Excellent motel choice--weeknight dinners are great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

The staff is always friendly and the rooms are spacious and well-appointed. Amenities like pool, exercise room and free laundry are nice (although the washers and dryers have been ill-used by guests that clearly don't have good habits). But the weeknight manager's reception is awesome, with real food, beer and wine.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

my son graduated from fort jackson in january. my other older son and my 9 year old grandson accompanied me out to south carolina for the ceremony. i have never been to this area of the country before, and when he first left for basic training last october, i knew i would be going out for graduation, but at that time, i didn't know exactly when graduation would be, how long i would be staying, or who would be going with me. i was planning on taking my grandson, but i wasn't sure who else would be with us.
i don't stay in hotels frequently, and i wasn't at all concerned with what hotel chain i stayed at, i was more interested in what hotel i could find that met all of my requirements, with my main requirement being i knew i wanted to be somewhere easily accessible to fort jackson. i also wanted a hotel room that would be big enough for whoever ended up going with me, someplace preferably with a kitchen so we could save some money by cooking meals, and i wanted someplace that was a nicer hotel that we could hang out in during the day if the weather was bad, preferably a hotel with an indoor pool. i didn't want to get stuck in a small, one room hotel room with nothing to do in the middle of winter.
i took a long time and really compared hotels on tripadvisor, and from reading the reviews, this hotel looked like it would be a really good option. my only concern was most of the reviews talked about the close proximity to usc, but there weren't too many that talked about being close to fort jackson for graduation. i did find a few, and i they all said fort jackson was easy to get to from here, so i went ahead and booked the queen suite at this hotel.
i'm so glad i did! the hotel was great. i had originally booked the room for mid-december, but the graduation date changed to mid-january because of the holidays. the hotel easily accommodated the change. we brought food with us so we could do some cooking, but with the free breakfast and supper, we didn't even need most of it. the bed was the most comfortable bed i've ever slept in. the free laundry services were a great added bonus that we took advantage of the night before we left. the pool wasn't huge, but my grandson loved it. the hotel was easy to get to and easy to find. our room was on the side of the hotel that faces the highway, but we didn't notice any road noise at all. and my main concern, which was being close to fort jackson, turned out not to be a concern at all. the front desk told us how to get there, and provided us with a card that gave explicit directions how to get there on one side and explicit directions how to get back on the other side. it was about a 15 minute drive, and it couldn't have been easier! everybody was friendly and helpful throughout our whole stay. after we checked out and left and were about an hour down the road, my son happened to remember a magnet he bought the day we road-tripped to charleston that he had left hanging on the fridge. he called the hotel, and asked them if anybody happened to find it when they were cleaning the room, if it could be sent to my house. about a week after we got home, the magnet arrived at my house in the mail. he was really glad to get it back, and i was really impressed that the hotel made the effort to get it back to him. they could have easily have not even looked for it and we would have never known. the magnet only cost him $1, and they spent $.90 in postage to get it back to him. that gesture in itself was above and beyond what customer service should be in my mind.
i don't know when or if i will be back in this area of the country again, but if i do, i will definitely stay at this hotel. and if i'm traveling anywhere else in the country and there is a staybridge suites in the area, i will definitely check them out.

Dear azdreaming,

Wow! What an awesome review! We cannot thank you enough for taking the time to share some feedback with us. First, please tell your son congratulations! Graduating from Fort Jackson is an incredible accomplishment and we are so glad that you decided to stay with us at the Staybridge Suites during your trip to Columbia for a family celebration at the graduation ceremony! We love spending time with soldiers and their families during this exciting time. We cannot thank you enough for the kind words about our convenient location near Fort Jackson, complimentary breakfast served daily, complimentary evening socials available Monday – Thursday, and excellent customer service. Just like you explain in your review, we encourage all of our guests to contact us right away if they realize they have left something behind at the hotel. This way, we can do our best to find the missing item and get it in the mail right away. Thanks again for all of your time and feedback.

The suite is huge. It was clean. It had a full sized fridge, stove, dishwasher, and microwave. A door separates the bedroom from the sitting area with the pull out couch.....nice privacy when traveling with kids or early risers. Lots of closet room, nice shower, quality towels and sheets. Queen beds...comfortable. Provided hot dinner and breakfast. I've never stayed with this hotel before but now it's my hotel of choice. It very close to the city's river walk park. You can walk to it...go if you get a chance. We saw lots of turtles in the water. Provided hot dinner and breakfast.

We recently stayed at this hotel as a home base for travelling to Augusta Georgia. The large suites are clean roomy and suitable for 4 adults. It is conveniently located near a highway and a short drive from USC. This hotel would be a great choice for a weekend golf trip or a central location for travelling to Augusta, Charleston, or Savana.

Dear dpharm,

Thank you very much for the positive ratings and kind words! We are so glad that you chose the Staybridge Suites Columbia as your home base while traveling back and forth to Augusta, Georgia. We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed our spacious, clean suites and convenient location. We are located near Interstates 20, 26, 77, and 95, making us a great stopover location for travelers interested in visiting popular Southern cities – just like you mentioned in your review! In fact, we encourage travelers to turn their quick stopover into an extension of their vacation so that they have time to visit exciting Columbia attractions such as Riverbanks Zoo, USC, and the beautiful Lake Murray. Riverbanks Zoo is ranked one of the top 10 zoos in the country by Tripadvisor, so we hope all of our guests have a chance to check it out during their stay! Thanks again for all of your time and feedback. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us and hope that you will come back to visit us again soon!

Sincerely,
Staybridge Suites Columbia Management Team

Our suite was very clean and beautiful. It had a full sized fridge, stove, dishwasher, and microwave. The cupboards were stocked with dishes, silverware, glasses, etc. A door separates the bedroom from the sitting area with the pull out couch. (Mom and Dad can have some privacy- a definite plus!) Since we stayed during the week, we had complimentary breakfasts AND dinners. They also offered complimentary wine and beer. What a nice way to unwind after a day of sightseeing! The complimentary laundry was also very much appreciated. They have a nice small pool, and have an array of dvds and boardgames to borrow. The staff was very friendly and professional. Highly recommended!
