Check in went with out issue and I was in a nice, clean well decorated room. I slept great the room included a microwave & fridge. Pretty friendly staff although it seems a bit...

Unlike most desk clerks we have encountered, we found the one at this property to be very impersonal. She seemed more concerned about being "professional" than friendly. Our room was clean, quiet, and well lit. The property has its own restaurant. There are not many other dinning choices without driving back to Columbia. We have stayed at many Holiday Inn...

I'm sorry the representative you spoke to seemed impersonal, I'll be sure to take this to our next front desk meeting to talk about it with the team. While there aren't a lot of businesses in the immediate vicinity of the hotel, it is just about a 5 minute...

My wife and I were in town for a wedding and I have to say the whole place was clean and neat. Our room was large, clean and comfortable.

We visited Columbia for Parents Weekend and a Tiger game vs. Delaware State.

Upon arrival, the staff was very nice and welcoming. The lobby was new and open. The room was clean. I had dinner in the on-site restaurant. The flat bread pizza was quite tasty! The location is right off expressway. However, there is nothing around the hotel. After exploring the area, it is not far from very far from populated areas...

The hotel was clean and staff were enjoyable upon check in. We just stayed for one night and spent a large chunk of that time at the game. The only negative would be that the bar only stayed open until 10:30. The game started at 6:30 and when we showed up and wanted a nite cap they were not open...

Sonny A, Thanks for staying with us, and thanks for sharing your feedback! I'm pleased to hear you liked our staff, and the overall facility. It is true that Kem's Restaurant closes at 10:30, but the bartenders may use their own discretion to extend that time, especially if there's a crowd at the bar.

Upon arrival, I waited at the counter for approximately 10 minutes before I called the hotel number. As the phone was ringing, the front desk clerk emerged from around the corner and apologized but said she was not feeling well. She did get me checked in quickly and on to my room. My room was a little smaller than I...

Mike M, Thank you for the 4-star review, and I'm terribly sorry about the poor first impression. I'm happy to see your room had everything you needed and a spacious bathroom. For a larger room, you may be more interested in a suite. I'd recommend the King Business Suite, which is one of our largest rooms in the hotel. I...

Good hotel for a business trip. Quite in the evening at the bar so if you want just your business partners there you can. The best part was the breakfast.
