Hotel is in very good shape and has a friendly staff. Room was very clean and comfortable. Location is very convenient and felt safe. There was, however, a problem with noise.

This was an overnight stay only while traveling. I've stayed at better Holiday Inn's than this. There was no hand towel holder so towel just sat on sink.

I stayed at this location for 13 days for a business trip. It was the best. Excellent staff. Excellent housekeeping. Excellent breakfast attendant. Small business center (one computer w/printer). Fast & Free Wi-Fi. Close to the interstate, shopping and dining.

If you are traveling to Columbia or Fort Jackson I highly recommend this hotel. The two customer service gentlemen, Tony and Bernard are consummate professionals; both went above and beyond to ensure we were taken care of. I have traveled frequently both in the US and international, and I have never experience such courteous and professional customer service while staying...

Normally we stay at Hampton Inn and are usually happy with our visit. Last year we did stay at the Hampton next door to this Holiday Inn. I was going to do the same this year, but the woman I talked to about a reservation was not friendly, also the price was higher and they don't have a tub/shower combo,...

My husband and I needed a place to stay on our long trek to Myrtle Beach, and this was the best stop!

BUT if you are a light sleeper...
