Make yourself at home in our Holiday Inn Express® hotels in Florence. In no time you'll sampling sweet local pecans or exploring the history of cotton along the South Carolina Cotton Trail.
This bustling South Carolina city is famous for being the home of Young Plantations, where groves of tall pecan trees produce flavorful varieties of pecans. Our Florence hotels put you near the Young Plantations Outlet store, where you can sample pecans unadorned or in gourmet flavors, and buy your favorites to take home. See colorful folk art paintings by native son William H. Johnson, part of the collection of fine art at the Florence Museum. King cotton long fed the fortunes of the rural South, and a trip along the South Carolina Cotton Trail is an enlightening step into the state's plantation past. Explore museums, homesteads and cotton fields in the market towns along the Cotton Trail, which starts in nearby Bishopville, a short drive from our Florence hotels.
For a down-home taste of South Carolina, stop by Willis Produce and Country store, which sells such local fare as boiled peanuts, country ham and homemade jams and jellies. Shop for bargains at the weekend Florence Flea Market, or buy fresh strawberries and bouquets of flowers at the Pee Dee State Farmers Market, open year-round. Sample barbecue, South Carolina style, at the steaming buffet table at Roger's Bar-B-Q House. After a good night's sleep at one of our Florence hotels, check the calendar for current musical and theatrical performances at the brand-new Francis Marion University Performing Arts Center.
Book your stay in our Holiday Inn Express Florence hotels in November for the Pecan Festival in downtown Florence, or in June for aeronautic acrobatics at the Pee Dee Air Show and Festival.

Holiday Inn Express & Suites Florence I-95 @ Hwy 327
We have stayed here before while visiting our granddaughter at FMU. Will continue as long as she is in school.[Less]
By ATA Shooter
This was our 2nd stay at this Inn. Last one 5 years ago on our way to FL. This time on our way back. The pool and work out room was a welcome site after 11 hours in the car.
Only negative I have is[More] a lack of towel racks and fan in the bathrooms. Other than that, great place and we will definitely stay again if we need to pull off the road from a FL trip.[Less]

quite facility,comfortable stay, pillows to soft, overall very clean and will return in the near future[Less]
Above average room, cleanliness, friendliness and service.
I slept in and that tells how comfortable the bed and pillow was and it was as quite as I have ever experienced.
The icing on the cake was[More] SHARON at the front desk, she was charming, helpful and her smile made my day! I hope that management will give her a hug from my wife and I.[Less]
Florence SC not IT
Good hotel but somewhat pricey. This is South Carolina, not Italy! The hotel was chosen because it is completely non-smoking. But smokers were right outside the front door upon arrival. How about[More] having no smoking outside as well as in.[Less]
Staff and Service
Very friendly front desk staff. Noteworthy is I forgot my wallet in the room and the maid, Ms Jean turned it in with every cent included.[Less]
