Microtel Inn & Suites by Wyndham Columbus/Near Fort Benning
Ranked #32 of 47 Hotels in Columbus
Reviewed July 24, 2012

Found this hotel due to the location and convience to Ft Benning. We really enjoyed our stay from the time we walked through the door to the time we checked out. The staff was very freindly and went out of their way to accomidate our needs. Tanethia and Linda were very acknowledgable of the area and suggested several places for us to visit and dine while in Columbus. Thank you so much for an enjoyable visit. If we have occassion to be back at Ft Benning we will be back. Did feel like the prices were a little high but after shopping around found then to be right in line with other hotels in the area.

The staff at this hotel was very friendly and our room was quite comfortable. I wish that the closet/drawer space had been bigger, but everything else was great. My husband, son and me found the complimentary breakfast to offer much more than we required. Upon our checkout, Taneathia, at the front desk, was very cheerful and helpful. After our long drive home to Texas, I realized that I had left some clothing items in a drawer in our room. I sent a quick email to the hotel manager,Ken Floyd, and received an immediate response by phone that my items would be mailed as soon as possible. Though my items didn't have a big dollar value, the hotel handled the situation like they did. I really appreciated the special treatment. I would highly recommend staying in this hotel when visiting the Ft. Benning/Columbus, GA area.

Room Tip: This is a great location to Ft. Benning. Three of us stayed in the room with 2 queen size beds and h...

Chose this hotel based on reviews, price, & distance to Ft. Benning since we were visiting for my brother's graduation from AIT. It's right off exit 3 so it's approx. 15 min. from the hotel parking lot to the site on the base where the "Turning Blue" ceremony is held. They do offer a discount for military family so just ask! The room was clean & water pressure was great. They don't put out complimentary shampoo, etc. but they do have a coin-operated washer & dryer on every floor. The pool was nice but small. Breakfast was ok. Staff was friendly. There's not much else in the area so be prepared to bring food with you or venture to Columbus to eat (about 15 min. away).

Good staff, we had 2 rooms, the main floor room showed more wear than the second floor. 2 queens, fridge and microwave for 80$ a nite with a discount. On the main road out of Ft.Benning, Yes we would stay here again.

Room Tip: 4 floors with an elevator, upper floors show less wear.

What a jewel. Stayed twice in last 2 months. Extended weekend both times. Booked multiple rooms. Very clean, great staff, excellent service. Booked four rooms for family. Everything was great.

Pool was clean (very important). Hot items on breakfast buffet were hot and the cold items were cold.

Make sure that when you book it is the St. Mary's rd. location. We had to move out of the Fountain rd. location as it was bad

Room Tip: All rooms were very clean. The single queen rooms are a tad small, but you are alone or just a coupl...

Had a wonderful stay at Microtel, the room was very clean, comfortable bed, minimal noise from hallway. Breakfast was good, more than expected to have served. All of the staff was so helpful and friendly, front desk suggested the Black Cow for dinner. The recommendation for dinner was nearby in downtown and was a wonderful choice for a good meal. I will definitely stay again.

The room was clean and as expected for Microtel. Check in and check out were fast and efficient. Upon check-in, we were advised that they add $1.50 per day for the safe, but if we don't use it, then we just tell them at check-out and they will take it off the bill. This was handled at check-out with no problem.
The location was convenient for everywhere we wanted to go -- Fort Benning, downtown Columbus, access to highway for Andersonville & Plains.
The room was very noisy - we could hear loud sirens outside on the highway, the TV in the room next door, the people walking around in the room above us and showering at 4:45 am, the guest laundry, which was right outside our room, has no door on it, so if someone is using it, we were hearing it.
Breakfast was also disappointing, because there was no milk. They had powdered creamer for your coffee. Sorry kids, if you want something to drink your choices are coffee, tea, apple juice or water. On the 2nd day of my stay, there were even less breakfast items available than the day before...it seemed as though inventory was running out and not being replaced.
We asked 2 different front desk staff members for suggestions of where to go get dinner, and neither one could offer any suggestions beyond the fast food restaurants in the immediate area.
