We have been here for several months, today we had the good fortune of having Lizzie assigned to our room for housekeeping. Not only was she friendly, her service was outstanding and by far the best we've received while here.

My family loved the location to phenix city and columbus. The rooms were immaculate and the service was super friendly. The free breakfast was hosted by a wonderful lady. She took care of everyone and made us all smile. Check-in was very easy and the staff were all charming.

This was a very nice hotel and arguably the best Holiday Inn I've stayed in (some are just dumps). The rooms were very nice, service at the counter was prompt and friendly. And the breakfast range was a bit larger than most.

I've stayed here several times for business. It's a nice hotel, offers a good value for the money. Everyone of the employees I've encountered has been very nice and accommodating. The location is not the best for great restaurants or entertainment but downtown Columbus is only a couple miles away. Recommended.
