TripAdvisor Ratings

The negative reviews are no joke
March 09, 2019

Stayed here on our trip heading to Florida, my husband and I and our 3 teenage daughters. First off, when there are virtually no pictures of the outside of a "hotel", there is a reason. There seemed to be a lot of people hanging around. Mostly smoking and you could smell marijuana. I have never done a drug deal but it appeared that one was happening in the parking lot. I could be wrong but with the types of people hanging around it didn't seem out of the realm of possibility. My kids wanted to leave but unfortunately we had just driven for 16 hours and needed to sleep. Went in the room for my husband and I. Before we even opened the door you could smell the smoke. Hits you like a ton of bricks. And it's the smell of decades of smoking. You can put a sticker on the door that says "100% non smoking room' but you need to hire professionals to get rid of the odor because it is in the walls. The neighbouring room my daughter's were to be in smelled like weed and air freshener. I got them settled and went into my room. lasted about 10 minutes. The smoke was getting into my throat, I was getting congested and the smell was horrible. I was trying to sleep with my shirt covering my mouth and nose. I was also worried about my daughters, who were old enough to stay in their own room, so I ended up staying with them. They've put these nice looking bed spreads on to I guess give the look of a "boutique" hotel in the pictures but don't be fooled. There was a burn hole in the chair and what seemed to be a burn mark in the tub. The floor and mirrors could use a proper cleaning. The hotel clerk was very nice and very helpful, so there's that.

Great customer service
February 26, 2019

My 2 week stay here was excellent. My room (standard king) was clean, safe, and comfortable and I appreciated being so close to many restaurants and stores. The best part was the staff though - everyone was super friendly and warm, especially Queisha and Ms. Jae. Having such pleasant and fun interactions with them every day made a stressful time in my life much easier to deal with. I really felt at home. Definitely recommend!

The staff is phenomenal. Check-in was a breeze and their also PET FRIENDLY. The rooms were nice and clean along with FREE WI-FI in a quiet location. While staying at the Red Roof Inn Columbia East Fort Jackson, I received excellent customer service along with great recommendations for local restaurants and entertainment.

New Year's Eve nightmare
January 01, 2019

Our room was dirty, there wasn't any hot water when we first got there. We ended up using the microwave to heat water so we could wash some of the road off after traveling all day. The walls were so thin you could hear the person next door going to the bathroom. Horrible. We will never use this hotel again. Very loud with people celebrating the New Year.
