Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Unhappy Hoosier Noisy and no sleep
We had the misfortune of staying here on a busy weekend. They were full and unable to handle the load. We were placed in a room next to the elevator and were kept awake all night by the noise of the elevator going up and down, sounded like a drill. To add to the noise, groups of teenagers were in the hall way talking loudly. When we went down to breakfast, there were so many people there, we couldn't get food and went out. Also, due to the capacity crowd, our room never got cleaned. About 4:30, housekeeping was close to our room, and it was so late in the day I told her to just give us clean towels and forget the rest.
Hopefully under normal conditions, this hotel does a better job.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jo048912 Excellent service, comfortable Rooms
We stopped overnight and were welcomed as soon as we entered the door.
The rooms were clean, beds very comfortable. There is some updating that needs to be done. Some wallpaper coming away from the wall, the top to the AC came off, but nothing that deterred our stay.
The breakfast bar was good. Many choices. I didn't like having to get assistance to make pancakes. The whole idea is do it yourself and eat so we can get back on the road.
They do need a pool!
It was good enough that we stayed in the same hotel on the way back.

They charged my card before arrival. After I arrived the night auditor was slovenly, took time to greet me, did not acknowledge my Rewards Status and did not direct me to my room nor gave any information about the hotel.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Liquor Rep Room not cleaned and poor breafast selection
Room was not cleaned after the first night, I was overcharged $40 for the second night and still have not received credit on my Amex. Breafast selection was poor and out of date. Its time for Holiday Inn to revamp their food selection.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Kelly from GA Not your typical Holiday Inn Express!
What may have set the tone for this visit was walking through the designated smoking area which is right outside the front door. You cannot enter or exit the building without walking through smoke or getting that smell in your nose.
My son found what we initially thought to be hardened stool in the toilet, but it turned out that the toilet was scratched and worn, but it was not appealing to the eye.
Finally, the noise from the elevator will definitely interrupt your rest if you are in a room adjacent to this area. (My room was #107, and boy was it loud and annoying).

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Athens1055 Friendly and accomodating staff
The staff was so very friendly. They did everything in their power to ensure our stay was comfortable and to our satisfaction. They went over and above the "southern hospitality" normally shown in the south.
This was my first time staying in a Holiday Inn Express and I must say I was pleasantly surprised, will definetly stay at another Holiday Inn Express in the future.

I really enjoyed my stay at the Holiday Inn Express. The Staff was very friendly. The rooms were large and comfortable. The room was also very clean. On my first night I had dropped the keys to my car in the parking lot and recieved a call about 5 minutes after I returned to my room letting me know that the maintenance man had found my keys in the parking lot and wanted to get them to me. This was my first visit to South Carolina and it was an overall great experience. The Holiday Inn Express is also conveninently located to shopping and many resturaunts.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RgHer Good Location for shopping
Nice location for shopping. Staff was very accommodating and recognized Gold Status. A few concerns: Inadequate internet, fan in bathroom, AC seemed to not cool according to thermostat. I reported these concerns on checkout and was told: Internet - was out and Time Warner was working on it. Fan in the bathroom: Is set on a timer. No information in the room about bathroom fan being on a timer. We couldn't even find where to turn it on. This is a bit difficult for females using hair dryers and other hair appliances. We turned the A/C down to 68 and it never got anywhere near this.
On the Up Side - The room was decorated nicely, was clean, bedding was very comfortable. Breakfast area was very nice.

Only drawback is that the fan on air conditioning and heating unit is on constantly to circulate air. Need to convert their system so it is controlled by thermostat. Room prices are highly inflated during Masters week but that is the norm in the area for hotels and golf in that area during that week. Have stayed there several times over the years and will probably return again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perk127 Wonderful Staff/Accomodations!
A huge Thank You to the staff at the Holiday Inn (211 Lanneau Ct., Columbia, SC) for making our stay such a wonderful experience. We (total of 6) felt right 'at home' for the 4 nights we were at your hotel. The breakfasts were truly wonderful and we all appreciated the cookies at night, and fruit in the breakfast room to eat whenever - a great snack. We were greeted every morning #by the smiling staff# with a friendly greeting, and the same treatment in the evenings. After we checked out and were returning to NE, I realized that we had left an important momento in one of the rooms. After a phone call, the item was located and mailed to our home. It arrived promplty! The staff went 'above and beyond' their job to do this for us! If our travels ever come close to Columbia, SC; we will definetly stay at Lanneau Ct. again. Thanks to all for making us feel that we were 'home'!

A great place to stop for overnight. It's what you would expect from a Holiday Inn Express -- clean, well appointed, friendly staff, and, of course, that breakfast in the morning. All at a reasonable price.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by NotHappyWithThisHotel Dissappointed
Stayed at a HIX for 5 days prior, stopped here before a long drive thinking the breakfast would be good. Checked in, no hot water or coffee... Breakfast, was gross...the eggs were so runny and wet they could not be picked up with a fork, the juices were very watered down, the food selection was not good- the pancake machine didn't work. Very disappointed and hungry, I left and went to McDonald's to get breakfast. For what I paid for the room -which was over priced for an older hotel, and my expectation according to my previous stay at another HIX this was definitely not up to par- next time passing thru, will probably choose another hotel.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JKinSC Friendly Staff, but that's about all...
I've stayed at HIE's across the country, and unfortunately this wasn't one of the better ones. The room was very dated, and not clean at all. The bathroom walls had holes in them, and the furniture (bedding, sofa, tables, etc.) needed replaced or updated.
On a positive note, we did get a good nights sleep, which is the ultimate goal of staying in a hotel, but I'd prefer that the room is clean, as well as comfortable...

I have been a weekly guest at this property beginning the first week of January. I am always greeted kindly by Macaulay at the front desk. The manager, Melanie, is always friendly and asks that I let her know if she or staff can do anything for me during my stay. The Tuesdy evening Managers Social is a great way to end a busiy day at the office w a snack and drink. This is a very nice touch and a big reason I stay at the property each week. Internet speed could use some work, breakfast is basic but always fresh. I will stay at this property whenever I am in Columbia. Very convenient to dining and shopping. Macaulay is the shinning star at this property for her professional approach and friendly nature. Evening staff should adopt her demenour. Melanie is a great Manager.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hoot2konig Initial courtesy via of Cell phone
With winter weather driving threatening and darkness approaching in unfamiliar territory with two Holiday Inn Express facilities in the area, I called via cell the first one showing on my GPS to get clarity on location[ We were approaching near three major interstate highways intersections.] The calm,courteous, confident voice of the female on duty was reassuring/calming as I received perfect clarity about location and directions for shortest distance to arrive there. That was the beginning and that type of courteous, helpful staff continued throughout our stay. The manager special on Tuesday night (the night of our arrival late and not planning to go out again in the current weather conditions) was another perfect fit for us and chicken wings, Greek salad, and drink of our choice available as soon as we were registered and in our room.
Personnel, to a person, were equally courteous and willing to extend help in any way; personalities of staff and cleanliness and quality of food served, and the comfortableness of the of facility keeps us coming back to Holiday Inn Express as we travel for business or pleasure. Sincere thanks.
