“Nice Little Place”
Reviewed July 18, 2014

We came here to stay while visiting my fiance during his graduation from Basic Training at Ft. Jackson. The room was clean and near Texas Roadhouse and Dunkin' Donuts so there are a few eating out option convenient located. The bed was comfortable and we were near the pool ( we didn't go in, but there were several kids who seemed to really enjoy it).

Nothing spectacular, but does its job well

Room Tip: Try getting a room away from the pool if you go to bed fairly early so loud children don't poten...

Congratulations on your fiancé graduating basic! We are very pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay here at the Wingate by Wyndham Columbia/Ft. Jackson. There are many places to eat on two notch road one of them being Texas Road house which is right up the hill. The pool is very refreshing and maybe next time that you’re in town and stay with us you’ll be able to experience it.

Jodi, Krystal and Amanda are what I would call the top of the customer service food chain making the experience great. Not only was the experience amazing but they got the job done when asked for something. I would stay here over and over when in town. Building was secure and great location to everything. Clean rooms and friendly staff made this one experience one to relive.

Nice and clean in a very good location for Fort Jackson (right off I-77 and 5 miles) Complimentary breakfast wasn't bad at all.

English Muffins, Bagels, Toast Bread, Muffins, Fruit, Yogurt, Scrambled Eggs, Sausage, Grits, Cereals, Waffle Maker, Coffee, Milk, Chocolate Milk, OJ and Apple Juice.. I am probably missing stuff but there's enough variety to get you going and the food was fine for included with hotel stay.

My only issue is how bright it was outside our window because of Texas Roadhouse next door and the Pool. The curtains let in a lot of the light from sides. Beds were fine but only doubles..so could be a bit confined for two.

Would stay at this location again if needing to go to Ft Jackson or Columbia SC area. Or a Wingate in general when needing a hotel.

Visited July 4th 2014, for family reunion near this location. My wife, her sister, and 83 year old mother made the trip. First the ugly - We were greeted at the front entrance by what appeared to be a state trooper with a very friendly hello. Once we enter the hotel lobby however an argument erupted between the hotel clerk and a young woman standing in the lobby with a young child. After a few minutes listening to the exchange it appeared that the woman was an ex-employee demanding her money. The child was playing unsupervised throughout the lobby. The exchange continued for some time until the woman decided to call the police. This went on the entire time we were checking in. I'm aware that things like this happen, but it would have better served the hotel and staff to speak with this woman at a more remote location of the hotel. I did not bring my 83 year old mother-in-law in during this exchange because things were getting Ugly. I finally decided to leave and come back later after the officer solve this problem. On the way out the police were arriving. Next the Bad. The only other bad part about the hotel was the location near the train tracks. Every morning about 5am the train would pass and blow it's horn just enough to wake you. I'm an early riser, so it did not bother me, but my wife likes to sleep later and have trouble getting back to sleep when she awakes like this. Now the Good. Great room for the price. Clean, air condition works well, shower was perfect, enjoyed the breakfast, staff was friendly, check in and out was easy. Other than the train even the location was good. There is a mall near by and several places to eat with different menus. Outside pool was clean and computer and copier available, and a place to work out. The review would be a lot better if not for that opening event.

Staff was unfriendly, abusive. Paint peeling off walls, bathroom sink was cracked in half, dirty, bathroom has a sewage smell, AC was either too cold or sticky hot. Breakfast was horrible. Worst eggs.

My mother and I stayed here while visiting for my brother's basic training graduation. The first night was ok and the bed was comfortable. However the next morning I discover that there was a spot of dried blood on the comforter. Clearly it had been set in for a while and was very noticeable. This comforter should have been thrown out and the housekeeper was obviously too lazy or didnt care enough to make sure that a stain free c ok mforted was on the bed. The manager took care of the issue but it was still very disgusting. Dont think we will be staying here ever again.
