Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Grasshopper1959 Staff was Great
There were a few small problems that came up. They were mostly, things that occur from day to day business, not because of poor staff or management. We had a toilet stop up and the card reader to get into the pool quit working. In both cases the staff was very pleasant and quick to respond.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dennis' Grandma Best Experience in a Long Time!
The entire experience was outstanding. I was attending a conference and had to be at an early meeting. The front desk checked my luggage until I was able to check-in. The entire facility was always spotless. The meeting rooms had needed equipment and seating for everyone. We had two buffet breakfasts and one served luncheon and all food was hot, beautifully presented and delicious. Staff were always on hand to offer assistance. The Sports Bar was reasonably priced and very good. The room was spacious, internet was fast, bed and chairs were comfortable, and the TV Channels were varied. All-in-all I would recommend this facility without reservation.

Other than a fire alarm (false) going off immediately after we entered our room, the stay was great. The room was in great shape and you can not hear any noise from the hallway. The breakfast buffet provides a wide selection and the staff were very attentive.

This location had good rooms. Up to date and clean. It had an amazing fitness area. More that what you see in many fitness centers! Only thing missing at this location is a Hot Tub. It would have been nice to enjoy this amentity.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Soccermom2three Very eye appealing, great service, excellent stay!
I booked this hotel for soccer teams for Show me games. It was very nice, they blocked our group together. Had extra staff on hand. They didn't mind the 9 & 10 year old boys running around playing durin the day but enforced the quiet time. The pools were nice and adequate group areas. One complaint is the doors were thin and could hear noises thru them as people walked by. Hotel room was clean and updated. Was the best stay in Columbia so far and will definitely be back again!

Holiday Inn and ( HI-Express) are known for their cleanliness; you know about what you will get wherever the location is. HI Express offers great complimentary breakfasts as well. I used HI wherever I stayed overnight in my career. Now that I am retired; I continue to stay overnight if available wherever I may end up for the night during my leisure travels.

WHILE THE HOTEL MAY LOOK DATED ON THE EXTERIOR, IT WAS WELL APPOINTED AND QUITE UP TO DATE ON THE INTERIOR. STAFF WERE FRIENDLY AND ATTENTIVE. ALL REQUESTS WERE TAKEN CARE OF IMMEDIATELY. ONLY CONSTRUCTIVE FEEDBACK IS ON RESTAURANT SERVICE WITH LARGE CONVENTION GROUPS. IT WAS APPARENT THAT THE RESTAURANT STAFF WERE OVERWHELMED AND EMPLOYEES FROM OTHER AREAS OF THE HOTEL WERE USED TO ACCOMMODATE THE LARGE NUMBER OF DINERS DURING THIS CONVENTION AS THEY WERE NOT WELL TRAINED OR ADEQUATELY VERSED ON RESTAURANT SERVICE OR FARE OF MENU.

I have nothing to add to my review,.except the food service in the restaurant could have ben better. Many people had to wait a long time for their food and this caused complaints with our delegates.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Sherlock7437 They could do a lot better.
I wanted a nice hotel in which to visit with my daughter, a student at Mizzou. This hotel was disappointing, mostly because of the staff. Examples:
1. Check-in happens at 3 small desks, floating in a large room. It's difficult to tell what they are, and the people standing there certainly did not make it obvious that they were there to help customers. Just smiling and asking if I needed to check-in would have been an improvement. Often, they were talking to each other rather than to the guests. And sometimes the desks weren't even manned.
2. Food: I ordered breakfast each day. The first day it came without the orange juice and biscuit I had ordered and paid for. The second day, those were there, but there were no butter, no jam, no salt and pepper for my eggs. The 3rd day I got everything, by specifying everything that should be on the tray, including salt.
3. Cleaning rooms: The first day no one cleaned my room all day. I called and asked for service twice. The third time I was emphatic, and they finally sent someone up to help.
The 2nd day they left the food tray from breakfast in the room when they cleaned it, meaning I returned hours later to congealed eggs. They also did not refresh the towels.
4. Attitude: There is simply no common courtesy at this hotel. For example, when I requested a few more minutes for check out, I was told no. However, when I came downstairs, no one was checking anyone in, so I doubt they were overrun with new customers.
The exception, an important one, is Kimberly. She helped me with my bags the first day, and was the person who cleaned my room the first day after I complained 3 times. She was respectful, pleasant, and very effective at her job!!! I wish they could see that the person with the best understanding of customer service was a low paid employee who was simply very kind to me.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by FamOfFourPlus Disappointing
The room was more humid than if you were outside and we're in Missouri in SUMMER. I'm not sure the dated bathroom has been cleaned thoroughly in years. The grout was disgusting. The "convenience shop" smelled like body odor all the time and offered very few conveniences and the poor cashier had to keep re-ringing the purchases because she lost her place every time she had to stop to answer the hotel phone lines. We called a bellman to request an assistance cart and no one ever came so we carried everything out on our own and in shifts. The bright side was Is'eh at the front desk at check-in.

My son and I walked into the hotel lobby to check in. We were taken care of immediately. Going up to our room, was easy because elevators were near by. When we arrived at our room, the room key worked.! Our room appeared spotless and clean. The shower in the bathroom was impressive. The lighting in the bathroom was great plus a magnifying mirror was available BRAVO
The room was superb! The whole breakfast experience was delightful.
Thank you for a great stay.

The bed was comfortable and the building was beautiful, however warm water one morning and only cold water the next led to a negative experience. Additionally, the guest with the barking dog didn't help the experience.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mwarner1144 This place is beautiful
Not being a fan of traveling on a Sunday, I was floored when I arrived at this hotel. The front desk attendant ( James ) was fabulous. Courtious and very efficient with my check in and his information of the surrounding area was very valuable the next morning. I would like to call him out for his service, he was a joy. The restaurant food and service was also fabulous, fast service and very tasty food. The fitness center was THE BEST I HAVE EVER SEEN AT A HOTEL. I am talking health club quality. That was very suprising to me but I was very greatful. Had two fantastic workouts in there. The equipment and machines all were something out of Powerhouse Gym. I guess I should not be suprised, after all the exterior is only the beginning to the pride the ownership and employees have in the property. I will definatly stay here again if I have another client meeting with the Uiversity people. Thank you for your hospitality and the overall pride of ownership your entire staff has in the property. Very refreshing to see that in this day in age.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by pj1957 Great service but room was in need of update
The suite we had served its purpose. The entire family(15-30 people) was able to meet in our room the night before the wedding. The bar area and dining table were great places for everyone to catch up. The rest of the furniture in the room was dated and in need of replacing, but my understanding is that many of the rooms had been updated and ours was probably on "the list".
