“Another great Candlewood!”
Reviewed 11 March 2012

We stayed here twice and it is just like all the other Candlewood Suites. Very friendly staff, kitchen and in a great location for restaurants or groceries. The consistency of the Candlewood is remarkable!

On our way back from the Keys, we needed a room that was pet friendly and somebody referred us here. Rick, at the front desk, was EXTREMELY helpful and friendly. The only drawback is that we needed to be up early and the "neighbors" liked to stay up late and party. Between that and the hard mattress. I did't get much sleep. The room was very nice and clean and the price was very reasonable.

I really wanted to give this hotel a higher rating because of the cleanliness and staff. But why do you come to a hotel? To sleep. Well, it's 3:00 AM and I've been awake since 2:00 because of a lousy mattress. I was like a kid on a sliding board---no matter how close to the edge I started, I slid downhill to the crevice in the middle of the bed, We were in a "studio" and it was decorated nicely and very clean. The person who checked us in was courteous, helpful and friendly. But I still can't get past only getting 3 hours of sleep with a long drive ahead of me today. My one other complaint is there are no luggage racks and no where to put your open luggage except the bed (if you aren't in it) or the floor. Please invest in some new mattresses and luggage racks!

My name is Antoinette and I recently stayed at the Candlewood Fort Jackson over the Thanksgiving weekend. First and foremost on behalf of the Baskerville family we would like to tell you thank you for the comfortable and wonderful stay. We are very thankful for those who gave up their special time when everyone should be spending time enjoying their family to extend their hospitality to me and my family. Many of us have not seen each other in over a decade and it really made it easy, and comforting that we were able to bring our family and stay at this hotel. My brothers family and I stayed their previously to visit my father months prior to this trip, and although it was one night and all we really got to do was sleep; we were very excited to learn that this was the hotel booked for the family for Thanksgiving.

The staff was friendly and very welcoming. I want to give a special thanks to Hira (please forgive me if spelling any names wrong) she probably took like five calls from me alone making changes and confirming reservations. She was very friendly and accommodating on the phone and no surprise in person. I really want to thank Tawanda who checked me in late on Thanksgiving and she was very bubbly, welcoming and made me feel very important. She had a big smile on her face when I came to the desk, and just made the check in quick yet personable. Thank you Tawanda because I work in a hotel at front desk too, and it feels good to be the guest and have such a great experience, and also reminds me that front desk attitude and presentation of self can make a difference between a gooD and bad experience and will help me in my duties as front desk too.:)

Thank you to Ms. Shannon whom I just spoke with before making this review just to thank everybody for a great stay. She was very nice and pleasant to speak with on the phone.

I know things do not always go right in one place all the time, and people may not always have the same experience at any given place. But just those few people represented their hotel to the fullest on one of the most special days where most people are enjoying time with their family, so keeping a great attitude and displaying such professionalism I will definitely recommend this hotel to anyone going to this area. I will definitely return, and Thank you Candlewood for making our Family time In Fort Jackson Special!!!!

KUDOS AND KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!!!!
