We stayed here while visiting a friend in Fulton, MO. I cannot express how pleased we were with everything - the beds were incredibly comfy, the room was immaculate, the staff were friendly and cheerful, the food at Kems, top notch! We had been on the road for 10 days before getting to Holiday Inn Columbia, and our stay here...

Wow, what an incredibly flattering review, Meg M!! Thank you for complimenting our staff, cleanliness, and Kem's Restaurant! I'd apologize for ruining you to all the other hotels but sorry, not sorry! I'm so happy to hear we exceeded your expectations and certainly hope we get to have you back. By the way, thanks for help "exterminating" our little critters!

Checked in early evening, no line to wait in and greeted very friendly. Check in was very quick and I was given a great room on the top floor. Getting to the room was easy and once inside I was very pleased with the cleanliness.

I have always been greeted by friendly, professional staff when I check in. The restaurant manager Dan, and his staff, create a relaxing atmosphere every visit. I tried a new menu item, Salmon BLT, fantastic! Keep up the great work, looking forward to my next visit.

Thanks, barry b! Our staff is very hard-working and it's always so rewarding to see our guests take the time to leave us such kind reviews. I can't wait to show your feedback to Dan and rest of the crew at Kem's, we're equally excited about our new menu! We, too, look forward to your return!

This Holiday Inn is one of my favorite places to stay. The beds are the perfect combination of soft but firm (wish my bed at home was like this), the restaurant makes a perfect omelet, and the staff is always welcoming with a smile. A couple of times per year the Missouri Gideons holds our state cabinet meetings here because...

Spent one night here. Nice clean room however, the bedding was terrible. Need to throw out the sheets and mattress pad. Was like sleeping on a bag of laundry. Told the front desk, hope they do something about it. About 3 miles to any decent eats.

This hotel has 8 Tesla chargers conveniently located at the rear of the hotel. They give Tesla owners their lowest rate and a 10% discount on food in their excellent restaurant. Extremely friendly staff at both the front desk and the restaurant. Great place to stay.
