Comfort Inn Ft. Jackson Maingate
Ranked #47 of 93 Hotels in Columbia
Reviewed 23 April 2012

Do not stay at this hotel. It is the worst I have ever seen. Stayed here on April 6 in a "suite". Bedding was adequate but there was blood on the ceiling, peeling wallpaper, a broken clock held together by tape, moldy bathroom, the finish worn off of the tub, yellow toilet. Wi-fi didn't work. The pool was murky with hair floating on top and a pipe from the pool as laying on the cement next to the pool. The hot tub has been filled with cement, but the controls are still on the wall. The place is in complete disrepair. If I hadn't driven 15 hours to get there, I would have left. Trust me, DO NOT STAY HERE!

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else!

Just there on the 11th of April. Feces and hair on toilet seat. Hair all over shower curtain and shower. Cigarette burns in the bedspread. Sheets with sheared spots in them. Chairs so dirty that you could not tell the color of material. Looked behind and at baseboards surrounding room and found that no one has cleaned behind anything in the room for ever. Food in fridge from last time someone stayed in the room. I would never stay there again and I don't know why Comfort Inn lets them keep thier name on the building. Disgusting place!!!

Room Tip: The brand new Holiday Inn around the corner is much better!

This is one of the worst hotels I have ever been in. The room was dirty and smelled like sewer. The toilet would run every once in awhile. The bathroom facilities looked like they had been there since 1950. The WiFi was very inadequate! The only thing the room had going was a nice flat screen TV. Also the woman that cooked and served breakfast was very friendly and nice. She needs to be employed by a better hotel.

Room Tip: Don't stay in any of their rooms if they are like the one we had Room 116.

We needed a place to stay for a few days while we were enjoying the Fort Jackson ceremony for all the soldiers graduating the week of Jan 17-20 2012. We thought the room was fine for the money. Beds were cozy and the pillows were the best so far in hotels that we stayed at. They had a nice hot breakfast which consisted of eggs, sausage gravy , sausage patties, bagels, donuts, toast, fresh fruit, juice, cereal.
Only complaint was bathroom door hit the toilet when you went to open or shut it.
Yea room could of been cleaner, but its not like we were staying in it all day, just long enough to sleep get up go to fort jackson come back later in evening. Did enjoy the pool and hot tub.

Room Tip: stayed on the 3rd floor, really didnt hear alot on noise.

This is an older property which claims to have been refurbished. I did not find the rooms clean - shower curtain was dirty, slip mat in bathtub was not clean, etc. This property is rated 3 stars through AAA, but I definitely disagree. Just wanted to share what we found.

I was in Columbia for business a week long trip. The carpet had just finish being clean so it was wet. They say hot breakfast but its just oatmeal and waffels that are hot. Everything else is cold. Covers were dirty and sheets were questionable. I wont stay here again for $85 a night and that was at a discount price. It Should be $50 a night.

Not too far from where my husband needed to go. VA hospital was super close. Directions were super easy. Front desk was nice and spoke multiple languages, which i thought was awsm. Enjoyed the indoor heated pool and hot tub, since my husband has a bad knee. Will come and stay again.
