From the time I walked through the doors of Candlewood Suites I was treated with such warmth, caring and professionalism. Your front Desk staff was knowledgeable and friendly, caring and very professional. She made sure she shared all the wonderful admenities with us and she reassured us if we needed anything it would be her plesure to serve us. My room was very clean and pleasant. It met all my expectations.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by sneezing and snotting under construction
I called directly to the hotel for my reservation. I arrived around 4:30 to check-in. After swiping my debit card the clerk hands me a letter stating the hotel was under construction. The smell of the carpet glue was terrible. They started around 8am the next morning hammering again. I called the hotel advising them they should warn the guests when making a reservation the hotel is under construction so they can make the choice to stay at another hotel before its too late in the evening after arriving in town expecting a supposedly good nights rest. If the construction doesn't wake you up the housekeeper will knock at 9am to see if you're still in your paid up until 11am room.

I had a pleasant experience with your hotel. From front desk staff to clean room. I was here visiting my son while he was here for training at FT. Jackson. We were lucky enough to be in the same hotel and my experience was great. The room was clean and comfortable and the staff were very friendly and helpful.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Donna E Stolen Tires and Bad Customer Service
During my stay at the Candlewood Suites in Columbia, SC, we had the tires stolen from our vehicle and the staff member Isabella was not very helpful this issue. I had to ask her several times to contact the police and the operations/cooperate manager to assist with this issue. The police responded and we were informed that there were cameras on the outside of the hotel which is alarming to me. The staff member Isabella at this time was very unconcerned about this issue and then was made aware by another guest that his car was stolen also. The operations manager was acting as if she had NO authority to refund or provide us with free nights stay since she stated that they are not responsible for anything that happens on the outside of the hotel.
Please make sure that you ask about cameras, theft, or damages to your vehicle when you check in.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Cathy326 Hotel felt like a ghost town.
We stopped here with our dog on the way to Fla. Nobody was there and it felt very eery. Our toilet didn't flush after the first flush, they did not serve any breakfast, and we felt like we were the only ones there. Parking lot was empty. Staff was very friendly though.We would not recommend this hotel.

My wife and I were pleasantly surprised. Doubly so, as she is very fussy about hotels. My only complaint would be that the drapes did not close to block out the light. Otherwise, I was very pleased. Special reconition to Karen, who was helpful, pleasant and knowledgable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DJnJL We will be back
This was our 2nd stay, each being approx. 1 week. The location is fantastic -- easy to get to, lots of shopping, restaurants nearby, and within 10 minutes of everywhere we wanted to go.
Everyone on the staff that we had contact with was courteous, helpful, friendly, and kind. We had a few 'special' requests and they were dealt with promptly and to our satisfaction.
Other pluses: 24 hour availability of coffee; speed and reliability of the wi-fi; enough plugs to charge all our electronics; ample closet space with plenty of hangers; the kitchen amenities -- loved having a full-size fridge and plates/utensils available; very reasonable rates.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bend442 Overall positive esperience
Based on my experience, the staff at this location showed true concern for their customers. Although we only stayed one night, it appeared the staff and those who were staying for a week or longer were somewhat of a family.
Our stay was pleasant with one minor item that we had with the room resolved very quickly. Again, the staff showed they cared about their customers.

I have stayed at the hotel three times but the last time was the one that swayed me from not staying there again. The staff is great but the rooms..not so good. The furniture is badly worn and not nice at all in the room that I stayed in during this last visit. This was in the second room. The first room was not good at all and I had to be moved due the heater not working at all in the first room. The overall quality of the hotel is not good at all now that I have seen it three times The painting is horrible.....it is in dire need of being udated. I think they should spend more money on the inside and less on the outside where they just had the entire lot paved. If they could cleanup their act......it would not be a bad place for the money.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KC102813 Excellent Service
The woman at the front desk went above and beyond to help me. I tried to make the reservation online to get the best rate but my credit card needed updating so I couldn't. Online said there were non-smoking rooms but there wasn't. She took me to view (smell) several rooms to find one acceptable. She gave me the rate online after I tried several minutes to update my credit card without success.
!! She was TEN STARS Excellent !!

This hotel is a great place to stay if you will be staying in a hotel for more than two weeks. It is great for business or leisure. The staff is very friendly and personable. They were very accommodating to me and my Husband during a very stressful time when we sold our home and was waiting for our next home to be built. We will definitely recommend this hotel to others!

Conveniently located for anyone working at Ft. Jackson. Also close to plenty of restaurants, shopping, and the downtown area. The staff was super friendly and accommodating. The laundry facility was a definite plus for a long-term stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ProudArmyGrandpa Great Service
My wife and I stayed here 3 nights to attend our grandson's Basic Training graduation and family day. From the very start the front desk staff (Karen) was exceptionally friendly and helpful. She made sure that we knew how to get to the base, called to make sure that our room was acceptable, and even hand delivered our "frequent stayer" rewards form to us. Our daughter arrived the following day and Karen again provided exceptional check in service plus made sure to congratulate her on her son's (our grandson's) graduation.
The room itself was comfortable and clean, though we did find a couple of cigarette burns in the linens. The fridge was full sized so it accommodated our sodas, bottled water, and coffee creamer quite easily. The coffee pot is small, but it did make enough for 2 cups. I also liked the fact that they provide "to go" coffee cups with lids.
The only thing lacking, and this really wasn't an issue for us, is that there wasn't any type of breakfast. While some may find this inconvenient, I personally did not. There are plenty of places to eat within walking distance, and the fridge and pantry will hold plenty if you want to stock up. There is a Wal-Mart about 1/4 mile away, which is where we picked up our sodas, water, and coffee, so we could just have easily bought milk and cereal, toaster waffles, oatmeal, etc. had we wished.
From the hotel it was about a 7 minute drive to Ft. Jackson, so I would say that the location was very good for the reasons that we visited Columbia. Once we were able to take our soldier off base, we still found that all of the places that we wanted to go were no more than 20 minutes away, including restaurants in the downtown area and the airport. There was no ambient noise (railroads, freeways, etc.) so room was quiet at night.
Overall, I found this to be a good hotel and would definitely stay again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 123Tiff Not What I expected
I have stayed here in the past for business trips and the quality was excellent. This time the front desk agent was extremly helpful and kind. However, the sheets on my bed had lint on them which made them rough fro sleeping. You could tell that some of the towels need to be replaced because they are yellow and stained. I went and purchased towels and hand clothes for bathing. I booked the room at 79.99 for the first night and was tricked by reservation into thinking that the second night was the same. It was 92.00 and I was not aware of that until I checked in. Being that I paid thru advance purchase, the front desk informed me that there was nothing they could do to help. I wanted to cancel the second night or either get the same right. Nothing could be done. Things like this left a bad impression and I don't think I will be returning.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LKKM Staff is Awesome
My family and I recently stayed at Candlewood Suites for two weeks while waiting to move into a new home. The staff at the Columbia hotel was SO awesome!! They were extremely friendly and accomodating. We felt so comfortable and at home in the hotel. The hotel was very clean and we had all of the things we needed to make our stay comfortable. The only reason we are not rating our experience five stars is that there was a damaged recliner chair in our room that we felt should have been replaced before our extended stay. The door to our room was also damaged upon our arrival making it more difficult to open the door with the hotel key,
