Reviewed 30 March 2012

Your standard Holiday Inn Express which was very clean and good staff. I do agree with other reviews that the rooms on the road side are a bit noisey. I would request an odd number room as the even numbers face the road.

Room Tip: Request and odd number room as they are on the parking lot side and not as noisey.

The Holiday Inn Express & Suites provides and excellent place to spend the night while in Columbia. The rooms are large and clean, the members of the staff are friendly and accommodating, and the hotel is well situated to visit the South Carolina State Museum, the State House, and a number of restaurants located in the downtown area. Breakfast is provided each morning and at nights there is a manager's reception. This is a friendly place. I would return should I find myself in the Columbia area.

Not having been to Columbia, SC before, I feel I was very lucky and made the right choice with this hotel. Holiday Inn Express hotels are very consistent with their service, amenities and cleanliness and this hotel provided everything as advertised. This location provided free parking and easy access to the local sites, including the University of South Carolina. It was only a short $5 cab ride to the convention center and surrounding bar and restaurant scene.

The bed was very comfortable as it is with all the HIE properties...and I mean, real comfortable. The walls are a bit thin and adjacent room noise was easily heard. Other than that, I was very pleased with my stay and would not hesitate to do it again. Columbia is a very nice small city and worth the effort to visit.

This motel is close to the Vista section of Columbia and convenient to downtown and the University. We did not have a problem getting around. It is new, clean, well run with a very friendly staff. Full breakfast was excellent.The pool and exercise rooms are minimal. We had a room on the main road side of the hotel but were not bothered by traffic noise. It appears to be a good value compared to other motels and hotels close to downtown.

This hotel is just on the west side of downtown Columbia, near the restaurants on Gervais St. and not too far from the Statehouse. The big problem is traffic. Both streets at the intersection have several lanes with lots of traffic, all in a hurry to get someplace. If you plan to walk anywhere, you have to do some planning, as some of these streets have sections with no sidewalk.

The hotel itself is fine, with nice rooms (although you can't open the windows). They have a small guest laundry (one washer and one dryer). The breakfast was outstanding with fresh scrambled eggs, bacon and biscuits. The staff was friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: The rooms away from the streets in front and on the side are quieter.
