“Nice.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago

My sisters and I, all of whom matriculated at USC, stayed in a suite at the Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites the weekend before Thanksgiving, so we thought it wouldn't be crowded, We didn't realize that the Gamecocks had a home game, and there was limited availability because the away team had several buses (and presumably lots of fans). Ack! We inadvertently broached enemy territory! Nonetheless, the hotel was quiet, and we had no problems with noise or unruly, misguided South Alabama fans.

The suite was spacious and the television channel selection was excellent. The bath had a jacuzzi but the bathtub area could haven been cleaner (mould) and the towels weren't quite plush.

Northeast Columbia is not a "happenin' place" but it would have been nice if there were some sort of visible nightlife in the hotel itself. Also, we would have ordered room service or eaten in the restaurant, but the menu wasn't appealing.

All in all, it was good value for the room, but the amenities were lacking.

I was thrown way off when I booked this hotel. I have stayed at prob 20-25 different Holiday Inn's this year alone. At checkin I was told that the bar didn't have food and I could only get food at the restaurant? When I got to the bar I was charged $16 for a burger that was average at best. Hotel was clean but this place is a ripoff on food and drinks!!

$67 for 3 drinks, a beer and a burger.....

I could get that at the Hilton downtown for way cheaper...

Staff wasn't knowledgeable on information of hotel. The rooms were very clean and upgraded. Bar was stocked and enjoyed the atmosphere. I really enjoyed my stay overall

As I stayed in Columbia a lot, I stayed 4 different Holiday Inns due to the availability. This location always exceeded the other three's performance. They have excellent customer service, extremely clean. They always expressed their appreciation for my business, they knew my name which meant a lot.

We were in town for a funeral and this hotel was near our friends' house. It was a great stay for the money, very convenient to our destination and 20/77.

While the interior was a bit dated it was VERY clean! The staff was great! The waitress we had for breakfast so nice! Very welcoming place!

The beds were the typical HI beds with odd shaped pillows. This time instead of the little squares they were almost body pillows. Ok comfort. The sheets were thin as usual. I wish HI locations would get better sheets. While clean they feel rough!

Thank you so much for the review and letting us know about your stay. We are sorry to hear you were in town for a funeral and give our condolences. We are pleased to hear the hotel was to your liking and all the staff members were friendly and accommodating. We do hope you enjoyed the new pillows Holiday Inns are switching over to which are sized based upon the bed size instead of the small little squares as you stated. We hope you will get to return on a better note next time and look forward to your next stay with us. Thank you again for the review!

Recently stayed on a one night business trip to the Columbia area. Very nice, upscale property that is meticulously maintained. The staff is friendly, too! We also enjoyed the restaurant/lounge for happy hour and catching up with an old friend there. I would definitely stay here again!
