"I was called back to Atlanta before nightfall, so had to check out same day, but everything seemed like it would be a very comfortable stay. The people working there were very outgoing and friendly, and the manager was intent on seeing that everyone got what they needed to make their stay pleasant, even down to making sure a couple of little girls who didn't understand the soda machine, didn't lose any money in it. I thought that was exceptionally nice."
Bill from Lawson, MO US rated Red Roof Inn Columbia East Ft Jackson 8 out of 10 on April 30, 2006
"I didn't like the cable setup. The remote control did not work very well. There was not a microwave or refrigerator available so I would not recommend this hotel to people with small children."
