This is a great clean updated hotel with fried my staff. We've never had any trouble at all. Its right off the interstate and close to the doctor I travel into town to see. The little bar and restaurant is nice and affordable. This our go to place in Columbia.

This was your average Holiday Inn. I had a fairly large room, everything seemed clean and well kept, it was also a good price. The main reason I am rating this hotel excellent is because of the service, the young ladies at the front desk (I believe it was Kelsey and Brianna) were so welcoming and they went above and...

We stayed here last minute and they were very accommedating. Room was very clean and nice. And employees were very friendly. When we said we saw them on trip advisor for a discounted price, they matched the price without a problem. Lots of ammenities, but we did not use any of them.

This hotel will not let you down and I'm particular to put it mildly. It's clean, modern, quiet and I could keep going. Booked online minutes before my check in and got a great rate. If you are familiar with Columbia, this hotel's location won't bother you. It's a mile and a half from everywhere you want to go without... More

This is an older hotel but has been re-modeled within the last few years. It is right off of I 70 near the university. This is a very large hotel with plenty of parking. I went to the sports bar on property and the food and service were very good. I had breakfast the next morning, it was real good,... More

Marissa F, Front Office Manager at Holiday Inn Columbia East, responded to this review

Enduroride, This is quite the lovely review, but I'm afraid you have us confused with another property! Our property just turned 5 years old this year and has actually never been remodeled. In addition, our restaurant serves made-to-order meals instead of a buffet. I'm fairly certain your review was intended for the Holiday Inn Executive Center, also here in Columbia... More

This hotel is very well maintained and the staff is very kind and accomodating. My kids felt welcomed. The breakfast vouchers are well worth it as the breakfast menu includes almost everything you would find at any restaurant. We had omelets everyday that were delicious. Our server was friendly and remembered our drink preferences by the third day! We definitely... More

Holiday Inn east was nice as most holiday inns are. The staff were all very friendly. Room was very small and organized oddly. You could not open the entry/exit door if the closet or bathroom door were open. Breakfast was decent and included a credit for staying at the hotel (almost free). Overall was a nice stay, just wish it... More

Very nice hotel. It was impeccably clean, well organized, and located in an area handy to all you need in town! Staff was extremely friendly and willing to help. Food in the downstairs restaurant was quite good as well. This hotel is a great value, and we will stay again when in the area.
