Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by amy1215 ROOM WAS FILFTHY
I would like to start by saying what this hotel is doing right, breakfast. It was very well done, someone was there making sure all stayed clean and filled. The rest is unacceptable. My first question to the check in clerk was " are the beds comfortable, my husband has a bad back" Contrary her reply "yes", They were one of the most uncomfortable beds I have ever slept on. The room was FILTHY! Dust covered everything, there were fruit loops behind the chair in the room, that had been there quite a while because they too had dust on them. I thought because there was construction this may not be the norm until i saw the bathroom, there was a rotted part in the bathtub, stains on the walls, it was not the quality I expected from Holiday Inn.

It was cold the evening we stayed there. The room heater cycled a lot...a bit annoying. But other than that, everything good to great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The Duck Great stop between home and Florida
My wife and I travel to Fl. and back home and this HIE is mid-way for us. Their comfortable beds and quiet rooms allow us to relax before continuing on. The staff has always been very cheery and helpful to us. We get no surprises and thoroughly enjoy our stay. The morning breakfast is always great and the people very attentive to our needs. Never thought of staying anywhere else!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Susan B 65 Upset!!
I was perfectly Ok with the rooms and the service. What has happened though is, I booked 2 rooms for Dec 19th for on our way to Florida. My daughter and children then could not come so I changed that reservation to 1 room. No problem. At that same time I cancelled our reservation for Jan3,2014 for 2 rooms on our way back from Florida again because my daughter and children were not coming with us and we knew we could drive further than that on our first day of our return. I called direct to Blythewood and I cannot find my written cancellation number so I am out the money for 2 rooms on that date. What doesn't make sense is I only had the 1 room for Dec 19th so that 1 room did get cancelled. We own 2 weeks at Holiday Inn Vacation Club. Because ,way after the fact , I cannot find the cancellation number, I am being penalized for the cost of 2 rooms.
I am extremely upset over this matter.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tambi Our best overnight stay in a long time
By far the nicest place we've stayed for the value. The staff was extremely courteous. The hotel was clean and roomy. The breakfast had a wide selection of fresh foods available. An overall A+ experience, even with having seven children!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by NLFL WiFi not accessible from the room.
I had a room at one end of the "wing" we were in. WiFi was not accessible from the room, but worked in the lobby. Therefore, there was poor coverage in some of the rooms.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by TravelBug13 Convenient Location
This is a convenient location as we were traveling north to WV.
We were very disappointed with 2 issues--the first being NOISE!
It was like the folks next door were in the room with us. Secondly, I am not sure that our room had been cleaned thoroughly from the previous guests. I pulled the shower curtain back and a dirty wash cloth fell from the shower bar. There was dirt and hair in the tub. After 2 attempts to call the front desk with no answer, I just cleaned it myself. ( I carry Clorox wipes with me!) We were very tired and it just seemed easier.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Anne11 Very unhappy stay
After we were settled in our room we found out there was a large birthday party planned for that night in the 2 rooms next to ours. We had to pack everything up and move not only to a different room but 2 floors up. Very dissatisfied we were put in the room to start with. Then the room they moved us to had a very noisy heater that kept us awake all night and there was no hot water in the shower.

Room was very nice & very clean. Linens and spreads like new. Checked in at 3:00pm and left shortly after and returned around midnight to find 0 place to park. Night clerk went out of her way to help. Actually mived her own car in order for me to have a secured space. Breakfast buffet was nice until the pancake machine ran out of batter at 9:30am. When this was brought to the attention of the attendant she said that it was too close to closing to put more in it

The only issue I thought of was the football game going on right next door, which made it a little loud when trying to sleep. Other than that, it was great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mynickname123 Slept like a baby
What a nice place. The entry way, hallways, and rooms were in excellent condition. The breakfast attendant in the morning was very responsive, and they even offered turkey sausage.
The best part of the stay was checking in. I was checking in late, and my credit cards where having an issue going through. The front desk person (can't remember her name) said that it could be the machine causing the problem and not my cards. So, she suggested that I just go to my room, and we'll rectify the situation in the morning. In the morning it worked. I was very thankful for hitting the hay, rather than staying up waiting for the machine to work. It made my next days' drive a lot easier.
I'll be staying here again, good location, nice place, and great people.

I came in for parents weekend and decided to stay out near some family friends. Very quiet and accomodating to my needs. Just a little housekeeping issue when I first got to my room, but staff notified mgr. and were very apologetic. Great place to stay and will definitely return when I visit my college student!

I visit Blythewood often because its in the middle of where I live in Charleston, SC and where my family lives in NC. I usually stay at the Comfort Inn down the road but after staying here at the Holiday Inn Express, (HIE) will definitely be getting all of my business from now on. The staff is excellent and the place is spotless! Nice, comfortable rooms, with a nice, comfy bed.

The staff at the desk were friendly, professional and efficient in handling our check-in and checkout procedures. The room was well furnished, clean, comfortable and quiet. The breakfast offered had a good selection and was kept hot and fresh by the staff. A good value and a recommended stay if you are in the area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NJexplorer Great experience fabulous healthy breakfast option
I drove from Florida to NJ with my daughter and 3 grandchildren. This was the 1/2 way mark. We got connecting rooms, and the staff could not have been more helpful. A highlight was the healthy breakfast option. All three children need gluten free products. Beth who helped us at breakfast was wonderful. The gluten free bagels were a huge hit. The hotel was a comfortable oasis in the middle of a long tiring journey. My husband and I always stay at this hotel when we go back and forth to Florida and we have always been very pleased with the service and accomodations.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by decco Room 101 - Good Bed - Nice Room
Bad experience checking in.Arrived app. 3:00 pm and no one was at the Front Desk. I looked around and saw a person in the Breakfast Area licking her fingers and motioning she would be over.Upon arrival I gave her my name and priority number and that I had a reservation and had stayed several times a year here. She looked on her computer and announced very loud "I did not have a reservation and must be mixed up!" I excused myself and went to my car for my computer, which I showed her my reservation confirmation EMail. She again very loudly, "There is a mistake somewhere and we don't have a room for you! With that I said you better check and make sure that a room might be empty. Sure enough, she said Room 101 was available. People like this you don't NEED! By the way, my bill was more than the confirmation amount. Had a Good nights sleep and a very nice breakfast the next morning. Oh - for dinner we ate at Lizards Thicket and very good. Amazing Menue!
