I was surprised by what a nice property this was. I was a little put off at first because it was substantially more expensive than anywhere else in town. However, in the end, it was worth it. The property itself was lovely. Very clean and well kept. The person who checked me in was very friendly and helpful - it... More

We stayed at the holiday inn express in Columbus the night before my eye surgery. The room was VERY clean and updated. We couldn't believe our spacious the room and bathroom were.

We were welcomed very well at the front desk during check-in, told of the breakfast hours and exercise room, as well as the manager's reception held at 5:30 p.m.. For the price we were very pleased with the... More

Like all the Holiday Inn Express hotels I have stayed in, this one was very clean and attractive, and the staff were friendly. This one, in my king room, had a lot of counter space in the bathroom. The free large breakfast and the evening snacks were great. The room had free wifi. My only complaint is that there was... More

We went to Columbus for a cattle sale, and stayed at the Holiday Inn Express. I don't know how old the place is, but it looked like it opened that day. They had a great pool, breakfast every day, and our room was great. The cool thing about this place is it was more that we expected. It wasn't a... More

This is my second stay at this hotel. I have been impressed with the friendly staff, clean room and yummy breakfast. I would recommend it for business and family travelers. From what I have seen of other hotels in Columbus, this is by far the best.
