Staff was very nice. Good, clean hotel and pool. Easy on and off I70. Good place to spend a night. We stayed the night to go to a friend's wedding. Food was good in the morning. I over heard a man complain about the water pressure in the showers but ours was fine.

Pretty wonderful place. Gave us two $20 breakfast passes, iced tea and fruit infused water in lobby, and a nice, clean room. Had a decent workout room, except I wish (and my son wishes) they had had at least some weights in there. But it didn't detract from the overall experience.

James S, Thank you for your kindness! We love to hear the word "clean" in our reviews! On your next stay, you should ask the desk about our Anytime Fitness guest passes. We've made arrangements with a nearby gym so we can provide our guests with complimentary day passes if our workout facilities don't suit your needs. Hope to see... More

Stayed here many times. Just a couple of years old, very clean and nice. Staff is very nice-have a small resturant that is decent along with bar. Kind of out by itself in a developing area but only 5 minutes back to main Columbia exit. If you need to be out in east part of Columbia this is a good... More

3020, Why thank you for the great feedback! I'm so glad you've continuously enjoyed your stays with us, as well as Kem's Restaurant! We like the remote area for the peacefulness and lack of traffic. We appreciate the recommendation! More

Stayed here for one night. Everything seems new and in very good condition. Front desk staff were pleasant. Beds were very comfortable, at least for me and I am a bed snob. They have an onsite restaurant and the dinner my wife and I had was well made and arrived hot. They also have a full service bar. Breakfast in... More

Marine-0311-Grunt, I'm so glad your stay was an overall enjoyable one! We're very flattered that a bed snob like yourself approves of ours! Thanks for trying out Kem's Restaurant, too. The hiccup with your breakfast vouchers was completely our fault, and I am truly sorry. The rate you booked DOES include up to two vouchers per day, and we obviously... More

As a frequent traveler it is rare I take the time to review...but the staff at this Hotel just excellent from all levels. Housekeeping, dining room, front desk, management. I really enjoyed my stay. It was a tough business week..this staff with their friendly and helpful attitude eased some of my tension.

I found the staff at HIE to be one of the best. Help me when I got in. Gave me suggestions for a place to eat that wasn't their own restaurant. Spent time at their bar and grill. Great staff there as well. This is my new home away from home when I'm on business.

Jeff G, Thanks a million for such a fantastic review! It warms my heart to hear a guest refer to our facilities as their home away from home, and that's exactly what we're going for!

Everyone of the staff members I encountered were very helpful and friendly. The service was excellent from everyone there from the desk help to the maids to the restaurant staff. They made sure that I had a good visit and remembered my name every time I talked to them. The room was very clean and so was the overall hotel.... More

Stayed here for a small convention. I was placed in a handicap room (no idea why) with king bed, flat screen TV, small fridge, etc. The bed was comfortable, the shower good, lots of channels on the TV, and plenty of wifi to choose from. Staff was helpful, although all checkins were late (possibly due to another meeting leaving that... More

Why thank you, Old_Drum! Sounds to me like you had a pretty well-rounded stay!

This was a business trip. The 3rd or 3 I had to take. The first 2 times we stayed at a different hotel, and I enjoyed it and was a little upset when they changed it and had us staying at Hoilday.inn. however I was very impressed! The rooms were very nice, and I couldn't complain about them at all!... More

I spent a week here for work. 13 hour days at work, but I never had a complaint about this hotel. They were extremely pleasant and helpful. Scott at the front desk was awesome and everyone else I had the pleasure of meeting was too. I would highly recommend this hotel for business or pleasure.
