“Excellent location and staff!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

I really like the convience of the location. We were right in the midst of everything for the fourth of July! We could see the fireworks from the hotel and we could walk to River street which was directly across the street. I would recommend this location to my friends for sure. The staff was great especially Nicole, Armethia and Shavon. They front desk staff were very friendly, but Amethia stole the show! She was so attentive to us as guest and I really appreciated her excellent customer service the most! You should bottle her and make duplicates...lol

P.S. The room was so quiet we thought we were on the fourtfloor alone!

Room Tip: We were on the the fourth floor. Corner room and it was QUIET!

The Holiday Inn Express was wonderful to stay in for our little vacation. The staff was friendly, the rooms were clean and pretty and the breakfast was great every morning.
The location was steps away from both the river street an historic district. A trolley picks you up right outside the hotel.
We loved our stay and would recommend this hotel.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

This hotel worked well for my family, although I think it was a little over priced. We had been at Hilton Head Island for a week and wanted to spend one night in this lovely city, so we decided to stay here. Located on Bay Street, it was convenient to the beautiful river front area and to the historic squares located in the area. We could walk to everything we wanted to see. If I was staying longer, I would have preferred a more "historic" hotel, but with that being said, it was lovely on the inside and did have some Southern charm.

Lobby - Nice lounge area that opened at 4 p.m. We missed the breakfast, but I understand from other guests, that it was very good. Ice water and snacks were available and a nice touch after traveling and touring the city. The concierge was very helpful and an added bonus.

Rooms - A little on the small side. I did pay extra for the balcony. Probably not work the extra money, as it was small and had no chairs. If I had to do it again, we would have just went to the roof-top to enjoy the beautiful view of Bay Street and the river.

The hotel rooms are very comfortable, with a very nice upscale bathroom, and amenities, the location can not be better right in the center of East Bay street, walking distance to literally everything in the historic district. The staff is very friendly and professional, breakfast is very nice, self service with very good selection of hot and cold food, very good cinnamon buns!!!

This Holiday Inn Express was not typical of others, Located right near the Historic District, it had the ambiance of an older hotel with its decor. In the lobby were comfortable club chairs, and a bowl full of apples and oranges for the guests in addition to to bottled water.The room was spacious, clean, and comfortable, and a great bed! Our room looked out at the river where we could watch the freighters piled with containers go up and down the river. A few steps out the door, we were a block away from one of the historic squares.

It was so busy when we got there, there was no one to help us with our luggage, but the manager, seeing our dilemma, personally got a cart for us, and got us our room. The concierge was most
helpful in recommending restaurants. The breakfast was plentiful and complimentary.


We could go,out the door, cross the street and go to the river walk to spend the evening strolling along the river walk. great location, we loved our stay there.

I do agree with another reviewer about the parking and needing the valet. Pricey, but loved the location so much, we didn't really mind.

Such a nice, clean place to stay. Very comfy room and beds. Glad they offered valet. Location was GREAT! Such an easy walk to anywhere in the Historic district. Only one street over from River Street. Rooftop pool was fun too. Would definitely stay here again. Complimentary breakfast was quite good also.
