There are very few hotel selections in downtown Augusta, so when I discovered a new Holiday Inn Express right on Broad Street, it was a pleasant surprise. We were there to attend a family wedding and were within walking distance of the venue. This hotel was recently completely gutted and rehabbed, so everything was clean and new, which was my main motivation for booking. Check-in was a little slow, because the clerk was in training. The room was nice, clean and well appointed....the king bed was extremely comfortable, including the pillows. The only drawback was the noise coming from the locked closet which housed the heating/cooling system...it literally sounded like a Mack truck was in our room every time it kicked on. This was room 503, and for that reason alone I would try to avoid it. We did not partake of the free breakfast so I cannot comment there. We did sit out at the pool area and drink a beer (there is a package store next door), and it is a nice area with a good sized pool. All-in-all, it was a good stay, with the exception of the noisy cooling system, and I would stay there again if I needed to be located downtown. Although this end of Broad St is a little run down, I never felt uncomfortable and I never saw any people lurking or hanging around. As I said prior, our family walked the 3 blocks to the wedding venue and felt completely safe.
