This hotel was average. The landscaping and common area carpets need attention. This hotel is a little below standard of this brand of properties.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kahless Great location and staff
We primarily used the hotel to avoid the morning rush hour traffic in trying to get to the Columbus airport. The shuttle worked beautifully, the trip to and from the airport was great. We were much less stressed.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MC_2014 Everything good spoiled with a horrible breakfast.
Rooms are wonderful, staff is awesome and friendly, the problem is the breakfast is BAD BAD BAD, that's the complaint in general by must customers, they promised to renew the breakfast in May, I was there the first week of May and is the same burnt gravy and burnt scrambled eggs, they just added a few apples and that's it, please fix the breakfast, go to another Hotel and copy theirs, everyone complains about the breakfast here, do something RADICAL, other than that is all right. Don't reply to my message, fix the breakfast for good instead.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Aaron39 Worst Holiday Inn Experience Ever
My wife and daughter were traveling for dance, so I told them to stay at the Holiday Inn as I have been platinum in Holiday Inn for business travel for the past 6 + years. I have always been happy in the hotels I have stayed and thought they would be comfortable at one as well. Apparently, this was not the case at this establishment. The suite that I booked for them apparently was very outdated and there were bugs on the wall and floor. After calling me, I convinced her to call the front desk, and they came up and captured the bugs, but knowing that the bugs were there made it very hard for them to relax or get a good nights sleep. The next morning, they went to the breakfast area and was disappointed by the lack of variety and quality of food. I would look for another hotel if in this area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stormin' Hotel in general
We enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Inn Express Columbus Airport. The hotel in general and the guest room were very clean and presentable. The staff was great and very willing to help with any problems which we did not have. The bed was comfortable and the shower was great. The hotel was quiet at night. We did not eat breakfast at the hotel as there was a Bob Evans right next door. I was surprised at the low price of the room since it is right next to the airport. The planes coming in and out did not keep us awake. Thanks for an enjoyable stay.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by DomerSM Not the best IHG property in the area
I've stayed at this Holiday Inn Express property a few times before, but I can't say I would recommend it. There are nicer properties around town. In my most recent experience the hotel had my status wrong upon, when I asked them about it they just used an excuse that the computer hadn't updated, and didn't check to see if there was a mistake. We'll see if I get my bonus points... Unfortunately that wasn't the end of it. This hotel is a little dated, and on my first night the room was very noisy because of wind kicked up by a storm. Upon close inspection I realized the window wasn't latched because of some loose screws on the window latch. I did the best I could to get the window sealed with the limited tools available to me at the time. I mentioned it to the front desk in the morning and they said they would take care of it, and they did not. No big deal, my temporary job did the trick for my stay. In general it dark and dated hotel, a bit lackluster when dealing with guests, the breakfast selection isn't as good as another HI express down the road.

Nice hotel close to Columbus airport and Easton Town Center. Pool is nice but no hot tub. Breakfast area is small but they did a wonderful job of keeping it stocked. Pull out sofa already had sheets and a blanket on it when we opened it up, that was a first for me.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Joe6216 Holiday Inn Express Columbus
When I travel I usually stay at Holiday Inn Express and I have to say my stay in Columbus was fair at best. To start with getting to the hotel was a challenge the pot holes in the access road have to be some of the biggest I have ever seen! The hotel appears to be older and hasn't been remodeled lately and kind of needs it. They do not offer any gifts or perks for platinum card members. Breakfast was very worn out no variety same options everyday. I know the Holiday Inn menu is pretty universal, but other hotels change it up by changing items every other day--bacon/sausage/biscuits gravy/eggs etc. Just a ho-hum stay, but Columbus/Gahanna, Ohio are kind of tired ho-hum destinations. So the hotel fit the community. The one plus is that the hotel is very close to the airport and the plant where I have to work.

I arrived at this hotel about 11PM when their room check in computers down. The staff tried several different computers. I realize this happens. But, train your staff for a backup plan (how to assign a room and key). I waited over 15 minutes for a key after along day fo traveling. Thsi experience left a bad taste in my mouth for this HIE which I usually find very well run. Management should have a backup plan. PERIOD!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by deanomite44 Great Hotel
I have stayed here a few times. I like the hotel as it is near the airport and convention center. I like to work out and they have a N/C membership with a local gym. The rooms are clean. There are only two things they could improve on:
1) Breakfast. I don't eat the cereal becasue they are all sweeted. Why they don't offer Cherios, I have no idea. Also, only bananas, no fresh fruit. But that is typical Holiday Inn Express
2) The driveway is full of huge pot holes and has been this way for years. They need to be fixed before someone breaks part of their car.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jkitsmiller2 Very convenient for the airport
This HIE is very convenient to the Columbus airport - it is just a few minutes away. They also have a shuttle to/from the airport.
I have stayed here several times and they are very good about recognizing me as a Platinum member and I often get a complimentary upgrade.
They are doing a lot of remodeling so it is looking a little more up-to-date.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mimi7335 Glad we choose this hotel
We needed a hotel to stay at the Columbus airport for a next day flight. The hotel was a perfect solution. The room was very comfortable and we especially liked the quiet heating element which at some hotels is very noisy. The breakfast was more than adequate and the free airport shuttle was a plus. Our only problem was a call to the room at 4 am that was a mistake. We had asked for a 7:30 shuttle and it was marked incorrectly. Otherwise all was good.

Bed very comfortable. Very quiet and peaceful. Bathroom quite small and needed hand grip to get into the bath/shower. Privacy drape across window didn't work easily. Tray in bathroom for coffee service wasn't clean. Towels exceptional. Kleenix in bathroom only had two tissues. Front desk staff quite helpful with any requests.

I travel to Gahanna quite often for business. I choose to stay at this Holiday Inn because of the comfort and convenience. I like the fridge so i can go to the Kroger across the street and stock up on drinks for my stay. Lots of places to eat close by, some within walking distance. The beds are comfy, rooms are clean and I receive consistent great service. Great value for the price.

This hotel is very convenient when flying out of Columbus airport. The comfortable beds allow for a good nights sleep and the wonderful breakfast is a great was to start the day. The staff is welcoming and friendly. I also appreciate that the airport shuttle goes directly to and from the hotel rather than stopping at other properties.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Seas Found a big moth like bug on my pillow!
Everything was good until we went to bed and I found a big moth like bug on my pillow. I didn't sleep well after that thinking there might be more bugs in the bed. We did the park and fly package and when we came back to the airport and called the hotel for someone to pick us up the person at the hotel said that his driver called off and had us take a taxi. I was kind of put out by that because when we first checked in the woman behind the desk said that they didn't hire drivers that had to come in for just that. She said that anyone at the hotel could drop us off or pick us up at the airport. It's really unfortunate that this happened because I really like staying at the Holiday Inn Express when we fly out for vacation once a year. We normally stay at the Cleveland ohio location and have never had any of these problems.

We had an excellent experience at this Hotel. This was the cleanest hotel that I have been in a very long time. You could even smell the freshness in the sheets/towels. This hotel let us check in early which was great because my elderly mother was extremely worn from our trip. The breakfast was awesome.

Highly suggest this as your place to stay. Close to Bob Evans and Big Boy. People at front desk were helpful with suggestions for hometown restaurants and directions. We had many relatives in for a funeral and the owner of this property allowed us access to the breakfast room so we were able to visit in a comfortable setting in the evenings. The children enjoyed the clean, warm pool. A very nice hotel. Did not hear one negative comment from any of our family about their stay. Rooms were nicely decorated.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TonyTraveler Not up to Holiday Inn Express Standards
Very disappointed. I have stayed at Holiday Inn Express many times and found them to be clean, affordable, accommodating and all stays left a very favorable impression.
I was traveling on business and can stay in Hotels more expensive but since I wanted to be close to the airport for an early flight I told my Admin to find a HIExpress close to the airport. This property was far below the standards I had come accustom too. The room was out dated, the beds were uncomfortable, the room smelled of smoke, the staff was indifferent and the cost of the room was about 40% more than what I was accustom to paying. I woundn't have minded the higher price but with the poor accommodation it certainly wasn't justified.
My recommendation would be to avoid the HIExpress. The chain is good but this one needs some work.
