Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DOT J GREAT EXPERIENCE
This Holiday Inn Express is an excellent place to stay. I stayed here about 2 years ago, and I guess I had forgotten how nice it was. The staff was so cordial, the rooms were very clean and had plenty of space. Just a great atmosphere. I will recommend this hotel to any one. It's like staying in a 5-star hotel at very good price.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Useless2 Clean, looked new, and two elevators!
My first stay at this particular HIE but it was well kept with a friendly staff. Every area was spotless and I loved the fact that it had two elevators instead of just the usual one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by QualityTraveler64 Normally a GREAT Place to Stay, But...
I frequently stay at this hotel for work and normally it is a great place to stay. What few problems I have encountered have been fixed to my satisfaction or higher. However, during this visit there were SEVERAL children staying in the hotel for a baseball tournament. I understand the excitement of playing sports, traveling with friends, and so on from being a child myself and as a parent when my son played sports. HOWEVER, there is no way my parents and/or the chaperones would have allowed me or other children to: run in the hallways, jump on the beds (overhead quite the story during breakfast about that night of excitement), throw food down in the hallways, REPEATEDLY ring the doorbell (handicap rooms), yell at each other from one end of the hallway to the other, sit at the tables in the breakfast area long after I finished my meal while others could not sit down to eat, and my favorite example of how rude and disrespectful the behaviors reached--throwing a sports drink bottle at a hotel employee.
I would like to suggest that the hotel either not allow these teams to stay, charge extra and hire security, have additional staff members, and/or rent the entire hotel to the teams so other guests do not have to endure the experience.
I will give credit to the manager and staff for doing everything they could to address the problems. The first night the running and yelling lasted well past 11:30 pm. The next night, things were quieter (still loud--just not as loud) and the noise ended earlier, and the third night also had improvement. Our final night there was when I had enough and yelled down the hallway at 9:30 to ask the people to stop yelling at each other and to be quiet so people could relax and sleep. It was a very quiet night on our floor. :-)
Kids will be kids, but it is the responsibility of the adults with them to help them learn how to act in public and take the needs of others into consideration. There is no reason for the behaviors we were forced to endure. Plus, I am guessing that the baseball league would not approve of these behaviors. In my area children and parents must sign a code of conduct each year. Maybe this organization should either enforce the one they have, or implement one with these teams.
The hotel has a great indoor pool, small exercise room, single washer and dryer, comfortable beds, clean rooms and common areas, snacks for sale in the lobby, & a free breakfast with several choices (e.g. pancakes, omelets, bacon, sausage, turkey sausage, french toast, toast, bagels, yogurt, grits, oatmeal, juice, coffee, tea, hot chocolate, and more.
It is located near several restaurants and only a short drive for shopping.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone, BUT I highly suggest checking to see if there are any events in the area that will cause large groups of children to stay. PLUS ask for the 3rd floor so you can't hear people walking/running above you at night.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by travelingMary2 Fantastic overall epxerience
This hotel was a great Holiday Inn. It appeared pretty new and was very clean. The pool was an indoor pool so it was available for use no matter what the weather outside was. The complimentary breakfast was great and the staff was very friendly and attentive. We checked in late and the clerk at the front desk was very nice and helpful. Despite the fact that there were many teens and college students there because of a baseball tournament that was occurring in the area, the rooms and hallways were pretty quiet. We didn't hear a lot of noise from either side of us or much hallway noise all night long. The business center was stocked to be functional...the printers worked and there was paper in one. They also have an area where you can buy snacks so that was nice as well. It is close to a TON of restaurants and shopping as well. I would stay again.

I enjoyed my stay. The only thing I will suggest is that the waffles be warm/hot. They were cold everyday. The internet was most likely overloaded. The front desk should know how to say no and a nicer way. Housekeeping was awesome. Very nice. Outside of these items, I loved Holiday Express.

Holiday Inn Express was our first choice when selecting a hotel on our motorcycle ride across the south. We were greeted warmly and efficiently. Our room was clean and comfortable. We were able to recover and prepare for our next day on the road.

We stayed at this property as we had to attend a funeral in Florence. Very convenient to everything in Florence. Would highly recommend. We applied Priority points to our room rate. Originally we made the reservation for May 2 and 3, but checked out May 3. We were charged for 2 nights instead of one. Can you please credit our card for $40 for May 3, 2014. Thank you.

I was overwhelmed by the kindness and the courtesy of the staff. I came in town for a funeral and was extremely pleased with the ease of check in and check out. The room was positively lovely, I have absolutely nothing negative to say. Their breakfast is not one of those warm up your waffle breakfast either, it was an amazing biscuits and gravy, bacon, sausage, everything kind of breakfast. In all my travels for business and leisure this stay tops the charts. Absolutely great staff, great rooms, great value, extremely pleased! If you are looking for a place in Florence area this is perfect. Indoor pool and hot tub also, well maintained facility includes business room, meeting room, laundry room, and workout room! Just really great, it's not often to have a super awesome experience so I wanted to take the time and let people know! Enjoy your stay!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by SuperPoser Average Hotel
I stayed at the HIE in Florence for work. The hotel was nice and the employees were friendly. But, there was a large black hair on top of the bed, visible without moving any sheets or pillows. A hair or two seems to be the average these days, so that’s what I’ll give for the overall rating. I mentioned the hair to the front desk at checkout.
If you stay at this hotel, I would suggest requesting a room on the top level. My room was on the second floor and I could hear kids running around on the third floor in the evening.

The hotel staff was really helpful and attentive. The room was nice and clean, the bed was comfortable. Kids had fun in the pool and I enjoyed the fresh coffee, even at 11:00pm at night.
Hotel was busy as it was the Valentines weekend and we did have to make a couple of requests to the front desk to have some kids running up and down the halls. The staff took care of the issues immediately.
Nice property, our daughters entire softball team stayed here and we all had fun.
