Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Trikiwo Comfortable bed and great service
My husband, son, daughter and I spent 1 night as we were making a quick stop on our way to Virginia. The bed was very comfortable, the room was clean and the temp was just right. My kids enjoyed the pool and were very happy with their room. The bathroom was very clean and supplies including towels were available and clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Had a very pleasant quiet stay, no issues and I would definitely recommend this Hotel in Columbia.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by lulubele Weekend Convention Stay - nice hotel
Comfortable, clean. Really impressed with the new upgrades, especially the decor.
My only criticism was I was not happy with the restaurant having NO steak knives??? I ordered a nice steak and had to use a butter knife, plus I have joint issues. Not at all happy on that front,
During breakfast both days there wasn't enough staff to handle the little things. coffee carafes empty, no cups. place setting of tables, etc, for the amount of customers..

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SadieT My stay
First let me say when I booked my room I thought I was booking it in another hotel. When I read my confirmation information and realized I booked my room somewhere else I was going to cancel my room but decieded to keep my reservations there. It was the BEST decision I could have made!
The hotel was very nice, well laid out etc. But a building does not make a hotel it is the people that can make or break any business and the staff makes the place! I wish I could remember names but can not. The man who checked me in was so pleasant and friendly could not ask for better! He stated my room was all the way at the end of the hall and I guess he noticed I had some trouble walking and became short of breath. He found me a room that was closer and much appreciated! I ate dinner both nights in the restaurant the food was good again every one friendly and checked on me frequently but what makes it stand out in my mind was the waitress that served me both nights. When I went back the second night not only did she greet me warmly but remembered what I drank. There were many people she served so for her to remember was impressive. I am sorry this is so long but I just think the staff is great and other business should take note and all can learn from them. Keep up the good work and know if I ever have to come back I will make my reservations there on PURPOSE not by ACCIDENT!!
PS the only complaint if you could call it that was it would have been nice to have a chair other then a desk chair in the room a minor observation!

To all who are looking for a great hotel at an even better value, look know further. I have tried most of the hotels in this area over the past 8 months and this one is the best. Once I spent one night I knew this was a well run hotel. The personnal are"professional" and we all know this is a direct reflextion of how a business is managed. The rooms are clean and updated. The only worrie of mine is that too many people will find this gem.
Nice job to the management and staff.
Thank you for the many nights of stress free visits.

The pillows at this hotel are a nightmare. Tough to sleep and had a sore neck. There were four of them, you might as well have had bricks. Staff informed me new pillows were on the way? Hello?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Howey Excellent staff
One of the most outstanding traits I recognized was the staff's cares and concerns and their ability to truly listen....a lost art today. I had casually mentioned to Daniel at the front desk that I was there to handle some family matters. EVERY day he asked how things were going with my family. Daniel, although its a small thing it meant a lot to me that you cared and that you listened. For a carefree stay with a staff that cares and listens, this is the place to stay when you are in the Baltimore/Washington area. When I return, this is the only place I will stay. Thanks again...oh, and it didn't hurt that the rooms were very clean and the beds comfortable.

Stopped after traveling all day. I love Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express hotels. This one was especially nice, just having been re-done. The carpet in the room was brand new, the decor in the hotel lobby and restaurant was chic and up to date. The beds were fantastic!
Enjoyed my stay thoroughly and thought the rates were more than reasonable!

Last moment plans to stay 2 nights to see Redsox vs Orioles on our way back home to NY from Ocean City. Great stay. Ayaz on the front desk was awesome to say the least. Friendly and helpful. We ended up staying an extra night just to relax and let the kids enjoy the pool. Food was very good. Highly recommend this hotel and would stay again!!!

Excellent hotel. My wife chose it because of the renovations but we did not expect this. Very well appointed. The lobby was amazing. The staff was super friendly. Ayaz, (If I remember his name correctly) was very professional. Took care of us all the way. The other front desk staff were also very nice. Thanks for making our stay. We will be back.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by glass1man Quality Technican for O-I Glass
I have been coming here for 9 years, and I have seen alot of changes most have been great. The people I have come to know are like family which makes being 300 miles from home very nice. I have even brought my family up to meet the people there, so when I talk about my family and talk about the friends I have made there everyone can put a face to our conversations. I do miss the old bar we had, because it was very relaxing, unlike the resurant and bar now, which has only 5 seats ( compared to dim lighting and 12 seats we had before ) and the lighting is like being out in the sun, which is not the best way to relax after a day at work. Being by myself I do not like to sit at a table and would prefer a seat at the bar, but so few seats sometimes. I also wish the menue could change some. I also miss the chairs we had in our room before, because I have had 2 back surgerys and the chairs with the backs and foot stool worked much better for me, but they do try to up grade me to a suite when possible, which has a chair,if not I have to use the chair at the computer desk to rest my back. Now I have said my piece, I love the people there and I WILL NOT CHANGE. I have made many new friends whom travel like I do also stay there. We all talk about the things I wrote about, so I told them I would do the review. Thank you for hearing ( reading ) me out !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by nylispen Two Nights at the Holiday Inn Columbia
Our car broke down on the way south and we stayed two nights to have it repaired...The first room, 2nd floor overlooking the pool was delightful..the 2nd room, 3rd floor overlooking pool had a very noisy A/C unit. Disappointed that there wasn't a free b'fast as we'd just stayed at the HIE in Roanoke Rapids NC and had a wonderful b'fast at a lower nightly rate.
The staff are friendly and very helpful. The dinner was good, crabcakes were disappointing for MD crabcakes. Service was a bit off as they were having a big open house that night and staff were really nervous. Garnishes on the dinner plates would have been nice..i.e. lemon wedges with the crabcakes and wetnaps for the ribs (ribs were excellent).
Nice to have fridge in the room. Beautiful bathroom! Would love a microwave...had one in NC HIE room.
All in all it was a good stay for a good price.

I decided to go up to MD the night before my son was going to be sworn in to the army so that I could have a restful night, get up at a reasonable hour to be over at the army base by 9 am rather than fighting the DC traffic. The hotel is very easy to get to, the staff very helpful and friendly, the room was nicely appointed and the bed was very comfortable.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TravelingV3 What a difference a renovation makes.
The staff at this hotel is a great group. From the restaurant staff to the front desk staff everyone was a professional but more importantly pleasant. The rooms were very comfortable and had everything you would expect from a well maintained and well managed full service Holiday Inn. The only negative is for anyone who as late nights and wants something to eat the kitchen closes at 10pm which includes room service. But the food is better than most I have had in my travels. The Tuscan Chicken sandwich is really good along with the sliders. So eat early and eat well.
