“Business Friendly - Great Beds”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

The location of this hotel was key for me as it is centrally located to our customer and great area restaurants are close by and easy to find. Further, the hotel is set back off of the main road and next to a Wingate so traffic noise at night was no problem and parking was ample and free.

You can expect the "standard" Holiday Inn services with this hotel such as a free hot breakfast (which I did not try) and free high speed internet. The beds are quite comfortable and the room I had was clean. Overall, I enjoyed my stay at this Holiday Inn and would be happy to stay here again if I am in the area.

NOTE: There is a same-day cancellation policy for these rooms which is convenient if you have to change locations at the last minute as minute as we did. If on business you may want to avoid HI Express, Fort Jackson which charged us full price for rooms we did not use.

Room Tip: The hotel is set back a good way from the main road so any room may be fine here.

We spent 4 nights at this hotel and enjoyed it very much. The beds were so comfortable and the breakfasts were great! When my grand daughter had a melt down at breakfast, one of the staff brought her a little cup of treats. Everyone was so nice. The hotel is right in the middle of shopping - the mall is right across the street and there is a tunnel under the street if you want to walk there. We would stay here again

Front desk staff and all staff we encountered were very nice, which was a refreshing change from most hotel experiences we have had. Outside appeared clean as did the lobby. My husband and I were traveling with my in-laws, so 4 adults shared a room for 1 night. We were assigned room 103. The room had a weird odor which we noticed immediately. It is best described as Playdough - just weird. We barely put our bags down and looked in the bathroom and the floor was covered in water. Not sure why. We wiped it up and it just made things seem gross - not knowing why the water was there or how it got there. Yukk.

In the room, Turning the a/c up, we noticed stucco missing from above the unit, maybe from moisture damage? The room definitely had a moisture issue.

The bathroom had NO vent fan, which was weird. It REALLY needed it. The bathroom held moisture like crazy, it was really bad and needed a fan. There was moisture damage in the bathroom and the bathtub had a large chunk of porcelain missing from it - which was kind of gross really.

There were several obvious areas of moisture issues.

But again, staff was great. Breakfast in the morning was really nice compared to most hotels - they had a lot to choose from. 2 of us are vegetarians and had no problem eating.

We would come here again - just hope they decide to add bathroom vent fans. Room was really very expensive for what it was ($200 for 1 night), even after a AAA discount.

Melissa_October,
Thank you for your review. We appreciate the compliments about our nice team. We are sorry to hear about the inconveniences that you experienced on this particular visit and would like to thank you for bringing these concerns to our attention. We were sold out every day this past week due to the Masters Tournament, so housekeeping was busy right up until check-in time making sure that each and every room was cleaned thoroughly. The last step of the cleaning process is to mop the guest bathrooms, so it is likely that the floor had been freshly mopped right before your arrival. The guest bathroom does come equipped with a fan that runs from 6AM - 10AM and 6PM - 10PM daily. Our General Manager has shared this review with our maintenance team to ensure that any potential moisture problems are taken care of immediately. We will take a look at the bathtub as well. Our rates do vary based on dates and availability, so we encourage travelers to call the hotel as soon as they know their travel dates to lock in the best available rate. Thanks again for all of your time and feedback. We look forward to seeing you again in the future so that we can provide the excellent accommodations that you and all of our guests deserve.
Sincerely,
Holiday Inn Express Columbia Management Team

Macauley is always pleasant and professional each time I ck in and ck out. Manager Melanie is always visable and available. Great Mgrs reception on Tuesday evening after a long day at the office. Beds are very comfortable and great to have both soft and firm pillows to select from. Evening staff should look to Macauley for how to treat guests in a friendly professional manner. Very convenient to dining.

Appearances, front desk staff, room size, bed comfort all as expected. But it was the details.
Had to pull the refrigerator out from under a shell to open the top of the coffee pot? Once brewed, the coffee was weak, better at breakfast. The light in the bathroom was a shop fixture without a lens. The handicapped grab bar for the shower was outside of the shower? Even with the curved shower curtain, still a shower in a tiny tub. The bottom of the tub was curved and make standing awkward. The room door was not sealed to the frame and let in hall light and sound. Just shoddy construction. The orange juice at breakfast was orange colored water.
Would be nice if there were hooks for clothes

RdennisA,
Thank you for your review. Our goal is to provide excellent accommodations and customer service to each and every hotel guest. Therefore, we are disappointed to hear that you feel we did not live up to those high standards on this particular visit. We appreciate your time and would like to thank you for bringing these concerns to our attention. In the future, please feel welcome to contact our front desk team if you encounter any difficulties during your stay. If something is out of place or not working correctly, we will do our best to solve the problem immediately or find a new room to better meet your travel needs. The coffee served on our complimentary breakfast buffet is the same coffee that we serve in our guest rooms, so it should taste equally delicious. There are different measurement options listed on the packaging so that guests can achieve their desired coffee flavor, but guests are always welcome to enjoy the coffee in our lobby if that is more convenient. We also have several handicapped room types available at our property in which the handicapped bars follow ADA standards. In the future, we will gladly reserve you a room that features handicapped bars both inside and outside of the tub. Thanks again for all of your time and feedback. We have shared this entire review with our General Manager. Our maintenance team is working on replacing the light fixture as quickly as possible. We hope that you will stay with us again in the future so that we can provide the excellent accommodations that you and all of our guests deserve.
Sincerely,
Holiday Inn Express Columbia Management Team

I broke a heel on my way to stay at this location. I was promptly checked into my room and the GSR informed that there was a rack room shoes in the mall across the street. Our room was perfect. Never heard another guest the whole stay.
