Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SMiskin Our Stay
I loved how the staff catered to us when we needed a taxi or someone to unplug the tub (our fault not theirs) The bed was sooo comfortable and the room temperatures manual were nice as well and not ontop of your head. I felt very much at home and relaxed.

This hotel is about a 20 minute walk from the downtown area of Columbia, so it is a nice location. Proeperty itself is clean and inviting, all of the staff were VERY pleasant and accomodating.

My 2nd visit to property. Great location to Zoo & gervais area...five points if you're a young adult looking for a fun hangout area. Room smelled a lil smoky (this is a non smoking facility) or stale probably from the AC unit. I did notify the front desk of the odor, b/c I wanted to ensure they knew I HAD NOT smoked in the room & later bill me for cleaning charges. Desk attendant was very apologetic & stated she would notate this in my portfolio. Overall very pleased, this is my "go to" property when visiting Columbia!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Abaybay CLEAN AND COMFORTABLE!
My boyfriend and I was in Columbia for a Life In Color event, and we knew we needed a place to stay, but didn't want to splurge. Well we stayed in a single king size bedroom, and it exceeded our expectations! The room was spacious, and very nicely decorated. And the bathroom was was stocked with necessities. Everything was very organized and had a relaxed feel to the room. And the breakfast in the morning topped it all off! And the staff helped you if you asked, which I loved because I don't like it when people are checking up on me constantly. If we are in the area again we will definitely stay there again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lucas4107 Staff is very good
This is good value for the price, especially if you are visiting your student at USC. Close to VISTA and sports venues

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Plater1 Room Conditions
The room issued to me was an upgrade which is automatically awarded simply due to Platinum Status. This room is by far sub par for condition in comparison to the other rooms. There is some maintenance taking place in the room but maybe that is why it was sub-par.
Bottom line is this Holiday Inn Express is generally one of the best properties in the US. I've stayed there at least 15 nights over the past few years. I would have rather had just a standard clean room vs an delapitated upgraded room.
This particular hotel is by far the most rigid on maintaining the owners expectations rather then the clients. As most business travelers are aware, plans change from time to time and this hotel requires 24 hour cancelation policy which is not reasonable for business travelers. Would like to see them be more aware of the business traveler constant changing schedules and don't upgrade a person to provide more space, if cleanliness will be sacrificed.
