Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Coswa One small big thing
Stayed at this property about a year ago and the breakfast was outstanding. This time around it was just OK. Fortunately, the front desk staff continued to be exceptional.
Otherwise, a very good stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by VA703 Good Nights Sleep - Breakfast Needs Work!
Front desk and check-in went smooth, very polite. Room very good to relax in. Breakfast was another story. Out of coffee, creamer (small individual servings) and fruit (bananas). Breakfast hostess could have been more friendly. New pot of coffee eventually brought out.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kwitten A Decent Stay for the Price
The service in the breakfast area made one feel very welcome. After unplugging the old refrigerator, and stopping the loud motor noises, I did get some decent sleep. Staff needs more cross-training so that everyone understands the various pieces of the towel set in a guest room! Even is the "house keeping executive" is gone for the day, People should be able to get a bath mat!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JJK4 Comfortable and clean
This was a quick overnight trip. Rented two rooms, clean and comfortable Hotel/Room.
made reservations on line and asked for late check out but when I got to hotel was told I would have to check in the morning also, was not acknowledged as rewards member. Will not impact my decision in the future to stay at an IHG property. overall experiences have always been good at these hotels with few exceptions.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jrbighorn service and quality
We just stayed four nights here and we were very pleased. The room was large and well lit. It was very quiet and the bed was comfortable. The staff was friendly and very attentive. The breakfast was average but Pam the hostess made you want to come again with her friendly and helpful attitude. You should go just to hear her sing! I would certainly recommend this hotel to others.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Sojourner27 Total Disappointment
We stopped here after traveling on a 3 day long road trip on which each night we spent the night at a holiday inn express. All of the other hotels were extremely modern and nice. After driving through the night and being extremely tired we opened our room door and were thoroughly disappointed. The room looked very bland and outdated. The carpet was an eyesore. The rooms, carpet and walls really needed updating. However on the positive side, the staff was very nice and the breakfast was great

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ms. G Comfortable Room and Great Service
During my business trip, I enjoyed the hotel immensely. The room was very very comfortable, relaxing, and exceptionally nice. It was my home away from home. All of the staff was very friendly and helpful. However, Ms. Pam was by far the best hostess. She showed love, care, and interest in everyone that was there. She is truly an exceptional hostess. The location of the hotel leaves a lot to be desired but what counted was that the hotel shined in the midst of it all. Thank you for a superb stay and I look forward to Holiday Inn Express being my primary choice for future stays (personal and business).

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by RJT26 Rude breakfast attendant
I have stayed at this hotel about 4 times in the last year and have enjoyed my stay, most of the staff is pleasant and very helpful except for the breakfast attendant. I found her to be very obnoxious and rude. On this last visit, as I entered the breakfast area she said good morning to me 3 times because she wasn't listening each time I responded back to her. Each time she did it she got louder and louder and drew more and more attention to what was happening that she attracted the attention of everyone in the breakfast area. I did not appreciate it and I for one will never make a reservation at this hotel again. There are 2 other Holiday Inn Express hotels in the general area I strongly suggest staying at one of them.

Staff bent over backwards to be helpful, including opening breakfast early as we had to leave for a competition before scheduled hours. Would definitely go back again if price is competitive!

We were very impressed with the staff at this hotel. The place was clean. We originally planned to stay 2 nights since I had to have surgery but found out at 3pm the next day that I would not have to stay an extra night. We were able to check out early with no hassel. Awesome staff. The breakfast lady sang beautifully. :)

Staff was very friendly and helpful. But by far a woman named Pam who fixed breakfast went above and beyond! She made everyone feel at home and welcome. When we go on business we use Holiday inn all the time. But her caring deminor made being away from home that morning more comforting. From her smile, to her singing she is truly an asset. Overall stay was great, rooms were clean, and would stay again.

I'll happily stay here again if I'm in the area, hopefully a restaurant will open near the hotel too otherwise you have to drive a few miles to eat.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Three3s Overall a good place to stay
When I'm in the Columbus/Fort benning/Phenix City area I always stay at a IHG property. This Holiday Inn Express is nice and clean with plenty, well lit parking. The rooms are clean, neat and comfortable. The staff is helpful however, the young lady running the front desk the day I checked in was NOT one of the more knowledgeable ones. She was nice but seemed scattered and did not recognize me a IHG Platinum Elite member.
Also, for those of us that frequent your properties, the breakfast gets quite repetitious. And the powdered eggs...ugh. The whole breakfast thing seems to need a punch like custom omlets or some other item that can add variety.
There is no outdoor seating areas except for in front of the main entrance. Seating outside of the "closed for the season" pool area would have been nice. Maybe a patio area off to the side but in back of the building.
Summary: I like this hotel and would recommend it to others staying in this area.

We came to town for our son's team's baseball game against Chattahoochee Valley CC, so the location was perfect. Love the cookies at check-in. The room did not only looked clean but smelled clean.
My only complaint was the pillows - way too soft.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Amanda1093 Probably the best place in the area… but that's not saying much.
I'll start with the good. The room was clean enough, the staff was friendly enough and despite the hotel decor was mostly outdated, it still looked nice.
And then the bad… There was someone above our room doing construction or something when we checked in. It was loud as we were trying to take a nap and rest. I suppose these things happen, so I can't be TOO upset about that. The heater/AC was pretty loud. I thought most of the Holiday Inn's were updating to quieter ones? This hotel needs a little updating and TLC.
What really was disappointing was the breakfast. The eggs tasted rotten, and the rest of the food left much to be desired. My hubby and I are NOT picky eaters, but we couldn't eat most of it… yuck! Maybe just a bad batch? Anyway, a big reason why we love Holiday Inn Express is the breakfasts. We ended up leaving and going to a local restaurant for breakfast because it was so bad at this location.
I'm kind of disappointed I wasted 15,000 points on this stay, but at least it appeared safer than some of the alternative choices in the area.

I have been a business traveler for the past 35 years. My stay at this hotel was in the top 3 hotel stays I have ever had at a hotel in all of those 35 years. No joke. I am not exaggerating. This hotel property and its staff is the best in the business. From the check in staff, to room quality, to the "new car smell" of the entire facility, to the wonderful, wonderful breakfast staff, this hotel is top notch. I cannot say enough good things about this hotel. Great job by ALL! And their lobby Christmas tree was beautiful!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by nrsekelnic Overall good experience
The only reason there were not Excellent on everything is I had trouble finding the place. It's easily visible, but the directions via google maps were not accurate (not their fault!) Also, when I clicked on the telephone number link online, I only got a message saying the call could not be completed as dialed. I showed up in a very agitated mood, but the staff was so friendly that it quickly went away!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TrailGal Happy to return
We first were guests at this motel three years ago and are happy to again report its quality was excellent. 'We experienced friendly and accomodating employees, cleanliness throughout, and a very comfortable stay. I appreciated the discounted Ft. Benning rate given to our soldier's families.
The only slight disagreeable element was the air conditioner was loud when it came on.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by eeyore1234 Good, Clean Hotel with a very friendly staff.
We booked the suite with a king for 4 days/3 nights. The room was large and comfortable. The beds were very, very firm. If you like a firm mattress, this hotel is for you. The beds were too hard for our liking. The staff is very friendly and the hotel is on the main road.
We did not eat breakfast at this hotel on any of the days we stayed. The dinning room was always full, so we assume that the food was acceptable.
This is a Hotel that caters to the family and so expect the hallways to be noisy late at night and early in the mornings. This is not a Hotel if you want quiet and restful sleep-in time.
