I have stayed at many Holiday Inns over the years. This hotel was clean, quiet, comfortable, safe and convenient. The breakfast was good and what we have come to expect.

Great service and clean rooms. Very close to all things north of the city. This location is popular for business travelers, so book early. The staff at the front desk were helpful and made certain I received the best rate for my trip.

Was in Columbia for a business meeting. Arrived in town prior to check in time but as I was passing by property I took a chance they could accommodate an early check in. Tony, the receptionist was extremely accommodating. The room was excellent. The breakfast was standard breakfast fare but was very well prepared and presented, Highly recommend
