Your Lodging Of Choice

Fort Jackson, South Carolina

If someone you know is graduating from Fort Jackson, you'll find staying at Staybridge Suites Columbia an ideal lodging choice. We're only six miles from the Basic Combat Training Center, which is responsible for preparing men and women to enter the U.S. Army. The day before graduation is Family Day where the battalion commander will meet you and talk about your soldier's experiences. You can also explore the army post and check out attractions like the Basic Combat Training Museum. That night, you can join your graduate for dinner at one of the fine clubs located on the post.

  • What is the closest airport to Fort Jackson?

    The closest airport to Fort Jackson and our hotel is Columbia Metropolitan Airport. To get to the Basic Combat Training Center from the airport, you’ll want to turn left onto Airport Boulevard, which is Highway 302. After about one mile, you’ll make your way onto I-26 South toward Charleston. From I-26, take I-77 North toward Charlotte. Get off at Exit 15 for Fort Jackson.
  • Do I need special paperwork to enter the army post?

    If you have a military decal on your car, you will be able to enter Fort Jackson simply by showing your military identification card. Without the decal, you’ll be asked by military personnel to present three documents: your driver’s license, vehicle registration, and proof of insurance. It's important that your driver's license is up-to-date if you want to enter the base.
