Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Deni 8 A great stay
After a long flight from LA I was pleasantly greeted and welcomed. I walked into a clean well lighted room with the most comfortable bed and a selection of pillows.
Upon waking I dined on a breakfast of many choices.
After work I enjoyed a swim in the pool, perfect temperature, to refresh me.
Front desk staff was helpful and friendly, greeting me each time I came in, and loaning me some supplies I had forgotten to bring.
I enjoyed my stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sheldon42 Weekend in Sumter
I lived in Sumter for several years and stayed at several other hotels which were disappointing. This was the second time I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express and the service was even better than before. The problem last time was the lobby was being remodeled so it was not as welcoming. This time it was totally different. The staff was extremely polite and friendly. The room was clean and comfortable. Even my wife enjoyed her stay and she is very critical of hotels. The hotel is situation within walking distance of many eateries including two steakhouses, four restaurants, and several fast food restaurants.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JB137 Excellent Stay, even with not-so-excellent Fitness Center!
Overall, this was a very comfortable and relaxing stay. The hotel was cleaner than I'd expected, though the stairwells could use a little work. The rooms (at least the one I was in) was very clean and stayed that way throughout the trip. The housekeeping staff was particularly generous and Ms Deb took wonderful care of working around my crazy schedule to support caring for my room. The variety of breakfast options were quite delicious! Which, of course, made the shoddy fitness center even more disappointing with only 3 pieces of cardio equipment. The hotel is very close to Shaw, and right in the middle of several great lunch/dinner options. Also nearby to shopping outlets and the Sumter Mall. I will certainly stay there again!

We booked a number of rooms here for our son's wedding and stayed ourselves for a week. The staff was more than accommodating to our families' needs, going out of their way to allow us to enjoy the reunion and festivities. I've stayed here a number of times previously and I've always found this to be one of the cleanest and best kept of the entire chain. Raj, one of the managers, could not have been more hospitable and understanding as more guests showed than we had planned for. Great job, Raj, and the rest of the Holiday Inn staff!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mands456 Bad cleanliness first room when we checked in - changed room - thereafter better.
The first nite when we checked in there were some previous guest's dirty socks on our floor and the floor had not been vacuumed under the hassock. Also, when I took a shower the tub did not drain. We went down to the desk and we were told they had no other rooms but when we said we were packing they found a room for us.
Thereafter for 5 nites we had very good service in our relocated room - clean and very good breakfast.
Also, the first few nites the elevator floor was not vacuumed - after a few days it was taken care of.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PGCP Great service; good upgrades.
The service is always great. The renovations have been quite good as well, but the cleanliness can leave one to question a bit. They try for the most part, but the extra push would help to really send this hotel in a class all its own given the town its in and the other options available. The best and most quality hotel in the area. Friendliest staff. Perhaps a better housekeeping staff leader would serve them well to carry them over the top.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tom is my nicknname Excellent service and comfortable room
The service provided by the staff was excellent and the room was quite comfortable. The location also provided good access to numerous shops and restaurants. However, the hotel does need extra baggage carts as two carts were just not sufficient for a hotel the size of the Sumter location.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by fordtruckguy great room just had a bad experience with my rewards point reservation
I claimed my rewards night at 10 that morning and we arrived at the hotel at 545 and they said they couldn't find it. So then I had to pay for a room. Which ended up being 2 two charged to my card and I had to call Ihg to settle it on Monday morning. Clean and very nice rooms though.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sandya01 great staff and rooms
All the hotel personnel were extremely friendly and helpful. The property is recently renovated and very clean. This is mostly a business hotel during the week, so it is quiet at night. The breakfast is very complete with lots of choices. They actually added apples to the breakfast fruit because I asked!

The stay was great. My room was clean and comfortable. A co-worker had recommended this property because it was just renovated. The hotel was right next to Outback Steakhouse, so that was great. My stay was excellent and the hotel was beautiful.

I stayed her for my grandfather's 60th birthday party. I was very surprised. Seems like they just finished renovations. The hotel is extremely modern. The décor was very welcoming and modern. I loved my room. The décor was just so gorgeous. Overall, the service was great and the rooms were very clean. Kyle at the front desk helped me check in early in the morning so I would not have to wait until 2:00pm. I will return.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Paul2010 Going downhill
I've stayed at this property dozens of times before. The qualtiy of service has been going down since the renovation late last year. During my last stay, the coffee machine in my room wasn't working and they didn't have another one they could send to the room. When the faucet in the sink was turned on, there was a hammering effect when turned to the cold side. There wasn't a table lamp between the two beds in my room so I couldn't read in bed. The breakfast is the same old every time, 365 days a year. I've given enough chances to this property. No more....

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jeff1210 Superbly run Holiday Inn Express
Because of the amount of traveling I do I stay in hotels all over this country. Clearly the Holiday Inn its Express in Sumter, South Carolina cannot compete with some of the Luxury hotels in major cities or vacation destinations. However, for the weary traveler who wants a clean place to stay, a complete breakfast buffet and a staff whose courtesy and kind is extraordinary this is the hotel for you. It is a joy to discover a hotel that still cares about the details and meets the needs of their guests going above and beyond the call of duty.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Business Travel-March2014 Rooms not cleaned and serviced
On the first night of my stay at the hotel, I went to check into my room and the 2nd floor hallway was littered with remodeling tools and products. I had to move many items, including mattresses to get to my room. Very unsafe condition, especially in case of emergency. After bringing this to their attention, no action was taken. The next morning, we had a fire alarm around 0400. I was on the same floor as the fire. Before leaving for the day, I asked if the hotel would be open for guests that night and if the rooms would be serviced and cleaned of the fire smoke and soot. I then called back around 1100 and the hotel staff verified that my room had been cleaned. I arrived back at the hotel shortly after 1700 and my room had not been serviced in any way. I still had dirty sheets w/ soot from the fire, soot was everywhere in the room. The room had not been cleaned at all. I notified the hotel staff and they did not offer me another room, or even to clean this room before I called it a night. They simply said sorry. Completely unacceptable to not clean a room, especially after the smoke/soot that was all around the 2nd floor.

I stay at this location for business a lot and haven't had issues until after the renovation started. The toilet had rust stains in the bowl, also holes in the wall, 2 of them to be exact, not all the way through to the next room but you could see inside the wall. Another disappointment I have for this location is the fact that you only get a bottle of water for being a rewards member, at every other location they at least give you a snack with the water. For the price of the stay amenities should be top notch I believe and they just aren't.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mark10 Surprise we're in the middle of a renovation!! Feel free to use the stairs if you want to get to your room!
Much to my surprise they were in the middle of a renovation project. Lamps littered the hallway. The elevators were not available because flooring was being redone. All in all, I paid full price for less than complete accommodations. Overall, extremely disappointed. I choose Holiday Inn Expresses specifically for the consistency and it was not there this time.
