Do not let Fort Jackson in the name of the hotel fool you. I accidentally made a reservation for this hotel thinking I was staying on Fort Jackson. The General Manager would not speak with me and denied a reimbursement even after IHG guest relations contacted them on my behalf. I did not have transportation to stay at this hotel...

While traveling from Florida to our home in West Virginia we needed a rest from the several hours of driving in the pouring rain. Located this hotel on Trip Advisor and drove to the easily accessible location just off I-77. The lobby was beautifully decorated (and not drabby as a reviewer stated). The color was typical southern charm. The desk...

The rooms were clean, front desk in afternoon and evening very nice. Breakfast has good and clean. Everything was good. Hotel capacity was only 30 rooms booked so it was quiet. So I was told by the breakfast lady. Internet worked well.

This hotel was pretty good. Unfortunately, upon entering our room we found a roach in the bathroom. But after we exterminated it we didn't see any other bugs. The room was spacious, and the beds were fairly comfortable, but soft for me. There was great bedding. The sheets and comforters were soft and very comfortable. The bathroom was very nice,...

Greeted by a most enthusiastic Dan who quickly accomplished registration and issued room keys . The brown colors of the hallways made for a gloomy looking venue. Further gloom in the clean black and red room illuminated by the limited light the new federally required light bulbs provide. A most unusual step down wrought iron separated desk area featured a...

New hotel with friendly, professional staff offering level of service appropriate for mid range hotel. As a Platinum member I received an upgrade to nice kitchenette with seating area. Although there only one night, I used the fridge and read on the love seat instead of in bed.That was nice for a change. I cannot comment on the breakfast as...

Room was clean, beds were actually comfortable. Quiet, breakfast was decent, it also served some hot breakfast items. I would go again if I where in that area. Indoor pool is always good when you have kids.

Very nice and convenient, right off of 77. Very clean and.friendly staff. Loved the layout of the room and love the ceiling fan in the room. Would stay again. Not a great choice of restaurants in walking distance though, but pizza delivers, lol.

Martinez, Georgia
Reviewed 19 November 2016 via mobile

Nice facility. Welcoming front desk area. Entrance to hotel off of Garner Ferry is busy and hard to find due to many other hotels and business signs. Parking is lite. King bedroom had ceiling fan, pull out couch and two TVs. Bathroom big and comfortable. Will come back.

My wife and I stayed here when we saw Pearl Jam. We try to stay exclusively at Holiday Inn Express and this is by far the worst. Not in the best of areas and the people working there were not as helpful about things as they usually are. And this is the 2nd time I saw Pearl Jam, first in...
