Maybe I'm just not used to South Carolina humidity but our room felt very humid upon arrival. We immediately checked the air conditioner for proper settings and increased the fan, but woke to a damp room. After our morning showers was even worse. Not a good hair day for those with wavy hair. Unfortunately, it wasn't just our room, it... More

Well, we will begin from the start. Not a good one. I guest being a Platinum member for almost twenty years and my expectations are high from the good old days when frequent traveler got a higher level of service when checking in. In the parking lot getting out my luggage, a hotel employee saw me struggling and did not... More

I actually really liked the hotel, but suspect I got some bed bug bites there. The facts: I hadn't stayed anywhere else prior. I came straight from my house where I live by myself and have never had any bed bug issues. Over the weekend while I was there I got about a dozen or so bites, mostly in small... More

It's been 15+ years since I stayed at a HIE, but this visit will make me think about staying more often. The staff at this hotel makes the stay. They smile :-) and they are friendly, attentive and aim to make a customer happy. The hotel is very clean and well maintained. Sheets are crisp, towels are of good quality,... More

This place was great. The Manager went out of her way to accommodate our large group over the weekend for a family wedding! We had some folks with walkers, and the house staff was great. The rooms were clean and very well kept by housekeeping.

This is a chain hotel as one come to know it, but it is better managed than some of the Holiday Inn Express chain. My first floor room was spacy, clean with a very well designed bathroom and calm surrounding. The location close to I20 is also convenient, but there are few choices for dinner at that exit. Breakfast at... More

The hotel is lovely very clean and a huge upgraded room. The breakfast was quite delicious. The towels and wash cloth were 100% cotton. There was a clean king size bed with clean sheets. The cost was too expensive for Camden, SC

I read the less than glowing reviews, but the hotel was recommended by a business assoc I was visiting in Camden & decided to try it. I was pleasantly surprised.

Disappointed. Not Holiday Inn Express Quality. This place seems outdated and unkept. I will not return. This place even smells bad. On my way to Charleston we stayed at another Holiday Inn Express in Columbia and it was much nicer.
