Overall this hotel is great. But during my stay it had a bad odor on the 6th floor that seeped into the room creating a very unpleasant smell. Also the front desk charged me for a dry cleaning that wasn't done, I found out after I was trying to put my suite on that it was returned dirty and not ironed. Still waiting on my refund it's been 4 days.

Overall facilities and room were great. Nice, clean and updated. Hotel staff was courteous. Only complaint is that even though the restaurant was nearly empty service was very slow at breakfast - couldn't tell whether it was the wait staff or not as although they were not enthusiastic it appeared the issue might have been more in the kitchen. Another customer couldn't wait for her meal and had to leave before it arrives.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MizzLivinMyLife Foul Odor
Usually, I enjoy may stay and looked forward to returning for my monthly business trips. I greatly appreciate the convenience of your hotel to I-77. However, my last visit (October 21st) there was a horrible odor on the 6th floor. This foul smell permeated from the hallway into the room. It made my visit rather uncomfortable. I couldn't relax in order to get a good night's rest.
I hope when i return on Nov. 17th, the foul odors will be gone.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Upsetexguest Not so warm welcome
Upon checking in the front desk agent, Brian, was nice but not friendly. I looked past his smug demeanor and went to my room. Maybe 30 minutes after checking in I realized that I forgot to pack scotch tape for a project I was trying to complete during my stay. I called guest services and spoke to Brian again and asked him for scotch tape, he said sure and told me I could come downstairs and get it. When I arrived back at the front desk for the tape Brian was checking in two guests. I stood at the desk and waited for him to complete his check-in with these guests and he looked up at me and says wait a minute. I smiled at him and patiently waited. Once the guest he checked in walked away he hands me a paper and pen with housekeeping employees names and signatures. I asked him what it was for and he said you want your check right. I then informed him that I did not work there and that he didn't remember just checking me in and told him that I just called and asked for scotch tape. He un-empathetically apologized and handed me the scotch tape. I was so insulted and felt as if he thought I did not belong at the hotel unless I was cleaning up after someone and I work for Microsoft by the way. I will not being staying at this Holiday Inn for I feel my money nor my presence is welcome. The Hyatt and The Marriot are within less than a mile radius.

My wife and I stayed at this Beautiful Hotel on our way home to Florida from Michigan. I believe it is one of the best Hotels I have ever stayed at. I have done a lot of travel in my day for business but now travel for fun.
I'll stay here again. You can't go wrong, It's a great place with great staff.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Sarah911c Horrible restaurant service
Most of the staff at this hotel were extremely friendly, with the exception of the server we had in the restaurant. She was one of the rudest people I have ever dealt with. Every interaction we overheard with her and other customers was rude a well.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by UnRewarded2 Extremely Disappointing Experience
I had one of my most disappointing travel experiences with the staff of this hotel over the recent Labor Day weekend. Our family has been traveling a long distance frequently over the past several months and has been staying at a particular Holiday Inn Express hotel in Blythewood, SC. As we traveled home on Sunday we decided to spend the night instead of complete the long 13 hour journey in one day. As an IHG Gold Card Member, I made an online reservation, unfortunately, at the wrong Holiday Inn hotel. I immediately followed up with a call to the IHG Rewards desk. A representative made two attempts to contact the hotel to cancel my reservations due to my mistake. The hotel Staff was unwilling to cancel my reservation and indicated they would charge me for the full amount regardless of whether I stayed there or not. I was shocked at the inflexibility, especially for a loyal rewards member.
We decided to stay at this hotel. When I checked in, I again shared my disappointment about their inflexibility and it went on deaf ears to both of the Management staff there. Their only response was – “At least you’re staying a full service hotel - Ha-Ha". This full service hotel had no microwave in the room, a temperature control that would not cool properly, an elavator that was broken, a bathroom door that would not remain shut along with a distracting damp smell. Some “full service hotel”!
Again - very disappointed with my experience and with the IHG Rewards Help desk to resolve the situation. This hotel is bad for your Brand Holiday Inn. Up to this point, I’ve had very favorable remarks about Holiday Inn. This experience has certainly soured my opinion of your Company.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BizzTraveler44 Convenient location and good perks
I work in the Columbia area and have tried many hotels. I come back to this location because I like the access to both I-20 and I-77. The hotel has a good lounge and restaurant that I can sit with my clients and have a business conversation. The service is always good and the hotel has a "new" feel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by H20Diver Great location nice hotel...
This is our second visit within 6 weeks. We have business in Augusta and use this hotel it as a stop over. Staff is very welcoming when we arrive at midnight.
Rooms are very nice. I would without a doubt stay there again.
Breakfast was made to serve and very tasty..they also had a breakfast buffet but we opted for the made to order breakfast.
Check out and check in was easy. Very nice hotel.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by brenda5 Poor facilities
I realize I did not have a reservation, but I was told there were rooms available, and they had bathtubs. The first room I was given was right by an exit door where people were standing outside smoking...not good for me as I'm alergic to cigarettes AND the shower was the type that water just sprayed onto the floor. Had I used it the whole bathroom floor would have been wet!
The 2nd room wasn't much better...No cigarette smoking but the toilet ran every time someone else in another room (don't know where) flushed their toilet. There was no tub, again. No hot water either!
The refrigerator was terribly noisy, and vibrated against the stand it was set into. Did not make for a quiet, peaceful night.
The facility is run down and needs to be re-furbished, especially for the astronimical prices they charged.
I did not receive any recognition or requested upgrade for being an IHG REwards member.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PKJ1 Comfortable Room
Room was good however pillows were not adaquate for a king size bed. *Elevator needs an air freshener and some air--hot ride to the 6th floor. * Did not eat any food so have no comment or rating.
I would stay here again but would request the 1st or 2nd floor only.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Airman1656 Room was not cleaned well, but staff was helpful
Upon arrival at 1:00 AM after driving for 5 hours, we discovered that the toilet had been used. We asked for another room with 2 beds because we were not sure if the room was properly cleaned from the previous guests, and they had none. The front desk sent up the security man with new linens and cleaning supplies. We spent the next almost hour helping to change linens and cleaning. It was a LONG night and we were very tired in the morning. The night staff was very apologetic and the manager offered us a free breakfast in the morning. If they can get their act together, it could be a very nice place to stay.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Tina456 Restaurant - Lounge
Our stay started with no issues then the next morning we decided to eat breakfast at the hotel. We had to wait approx 5-7 minutes to be seated, even though there were several empty tables. When we were finally seated, we waited 10 min for the waitress to get our drink order then another 20 min before she brought us our drinks back and took our breakfast order. We watched other people come in and get served before we did. We watched the waitresses run around like crazy trying to serve everyone. But again, the restaurant was not full. The waitresses were very nice and apologetic but it was ridiculous that it took 1.5 hours before we even got our meal. I did end of speaking with the manager regarding the incident.
Nice room, but don't try to eat there!

Everyone was very courteous. Very beautiful decor, I loved the lobby furniture and how the rooms look like they could be in a home improvement magazine. My sister and I talked about how we were walking around in our white socks and they didn't get dirty on the carpet. Yes, we felt that comfortable. Wi-fi was faster then I have at home, loved that! The complimentary shampoo in room and the towels at pool side was excellent especially after a swim.
Thanks for a great stay,

This hotel is convenient, located just off the interstate. It is quiet and comfortable. I like staying here when I am in town. I hope they soon renovate the HVAC system to reduce the buzzing noise that is constant. Still, that would not discourage me from staying at this fine hotel.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MaggieC Not what I was expecting...
The bed was not very comfortable at all. When I lay down, I immediately sank into a gully in the mattress and had to sleep across the bed instead of the normal position. The pillows were good examples of why I always carry my own pillow when traveling. I prefer to use my own shampoo and made the mistake of leaving the cap on the counter, even though the bottle was plainly visible in the shower but the room attendant threw away the cap anyway. So I had to drive around South Carolina for two more days with a full, open bottle of shampoo in my cup holder. Also, the internet connection was so slow that I finally gave up on doing any work and watched TV. For the experience, it was very over-priced.

I was so tired and so down. The staff made me feel like I was important. I was given a cold bottle of water soon as I checked in. I needed that. The bed was great. The hotel was so quiet after 11pm I actually looked out in the hallway to see what was up. It was so clean. It was the best experience I have had in such a l long time. Maintenance people were noisy during the day, loud and didn't keep their door from slamming, but it was nice to hear them laugh. They were happy. Could have been quieter, but they were happy. Thanks Folks, but a good sleep.
