My wife and two nieces were traveling to Denver from MN and stopped to spend the night in NE. We didn't research hotels - just planned to stop when we we were tired so I was concerned about what we might end up with. I am pretty fussy. I am a regular business traveler and get pretty anal about the... More

Having been a weekly business traveler to Columbus, NE since Oct, 2013 and staying at the Holiday Day Inn Express Hotel from the start, I have absolutely enjoyed each stay. Everything has been par excellence at this hotel – friendly and more than eager to help staff (all of them!), clean rooms, breakfast, happy hour – everything! All in all,... More

The rooms were very large and extremely clean. The indoor pool and fitness center were also very well kept. The breakfast was amazing! Hot, fresh and well stocked. Staff went above and beyond. Excellent!

This Holiday Inn Express is excellent choice in Columbus Nebraska. It has good location, relaxing lobby area, clean rooms and Walmart store just beside the hotel. Personnel were very nice and service in the lobby area during Happy Hour was very good. They serve decent Happy Hour appetizers with draft beer or wine as well. I recommend it.

I stayed over the Labor Day holiday which was a disaster. The room I requested was not cleaned due to lack of housekeeping staff. The room I accepted was poorly cleaned, I had to clean the room to make it acceptable. The front desk clerk replaced the shower curtain because it was filthy. There were socks under the bed from...

The Columbus Holiday Inn Express is a nice place to stay. It does have a chlorine pool smell throughout the building but other than that, the rooms are nice. The staff was amazing during our stay. The lady who ran the continental breakfast was always so helpful (I was traveling alone with my 2-year-old). She would grab my daughter fruit... More

But sadly, that's not saying a whole lot. The room was huge, the beds were fantastic and there were plenty of pillows. The pool was fairly small, but I have seen smaller. There was more truck noise than I expected, but then I also expected to be harassed by the train, but I never heard the train. I was on... More

This is a very nice facility. Definitely the best in Columbus. There was a couple of snags with our room, however the staff took care of everything and really made us feel welcome. The beds were great and even though the hotel was full our room was quiet.

This is a newer Holiday Inn Express and comes with all the newer amenities. The rooms are bigger, very clean, the A/C is fantastic, and the hotel has a pretty great collection of DVDs you can check out. The management also hosts a reception with appetizers and beer/wine most nights from 5pm-7pm. There is nothing like having a cold beer... More
