Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Bobs626 Not as good as once was!
I truly hate to say this but we have stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Columbus many times over the years. Our experience has gone from superb to "we need to start looking elsewhere".
At our last stay the sheets smelled like a chemical and the room was not as clean as we were used to.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mck2013 Just sorry it was only one night!
The room, pool area and breakfast were perfect and staff was even better.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Outsider2 Best Place to stay in Columbus
I lived in Columbus for over 30 years and now have to stay overnight on occasions because of business. It is a very comfortable place to stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Scrapbooker926 A nice experience
Friends and I were in town for a weekend of scrapbooking and chose this location for lodging. A good choice, property was clean and well kept, the front desk personnel were efficient and friendly, room was great, having a hot breakfast on a cool Nebraska morning was a good touch, and being on the highway was convenient. The only downside of the entire experience was when we checked in, I was told that the rate I had booked the rooms at had gone up after I had booked. Fortunately I had printed off a copy of the reservation confirmation, so the lady honored that rate. I don't remember seeing anywhere on the website where it said that the rate was subject to increase and I would be charged the new rate. But everything else was great! We'll stay there again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Heirloomz Very good except...
We love the Holiday Inn Express hotels and stay whenever we can. Check in was great and the ladies at the desk were awesome. My husband travels for Walmart and I always ask for late check out since we are priority members. I was told I could leave at 2 pm, but the manager called at 12:45 and asked me to leave. Said they were booked that night and the cleaning ladies were ready to leave. As a priority member, the hotels always let me stay until 2 pm. This was very disappointing.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LoFreq56 The HIE that all others are compared!
The best HIE there is (that I know of). The only one with a "Manager's Reception". I've asked other HIE if they have a "reception" and they looked confused and say, "What?". The staff is genuinely friendly. I stay @ Columbus several times per year and always stay @ HIE. Thanks for making traveling better.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 645576 One of the nicer places in Columbus
Great staff. Hotel and rooms are good quality in line with other Holiday Inn Express locations. Price was a bit high for a town not near any major industry or tourist attractions. If you stay here, ask for a room away from the main road as there is a truckstop across the street. Obnoxious traffic noise from 6AM to sometime in the evening. I checked in quite late (1AM) and had planned to sleep in before checking out, but the annoying sound of semi engine brakes, cars and trucks with no mufflers accelerating, and general traffic noise meant I had to get up at 6AM. It was actually quite loud up on the fourth floor. Of course, if much better windows were installed, it would probably remedy this.
