Upon arrival, the staff was very nice and welcoming. The lobby was new and open. The room was clean. I had dinner in the on-site restaurant. The flat bread pizza was quite tasty! The location is right off expressway. However, there is nothing around the hotel. After exploring the area, it is not far from very far from populated areas... More

Easy access off freeway, Right next to Columbia Mall is a plus. Beds are full size but comfortable... Hotel needs some attention; small esthetic issues are easily corrected. Lovely staff, Large property. I would stay here again.

The hotel was clean and staff were enjoyable upon check in. We just stayed for one night and spent a large chunk of that time at the game. The only negative would be that the bar only stayed open until 10:30. The game started at 6:30 and when we showed up and wanted a nite cap they were not open... More

Sonny A, Thanks for staying with us, and thanks for sharing your feedback! I'm pleased to hear you liked our staff, and the overall facility. It is true that Kem's Restaurant closes at 10:30, but the bartenders may use their own discretion to extend that time, especially if there's a crowd at the bar. I've forwarded your comments to our...

Upon arrival, I waited at the counter for approximately 10 minutes before I called the hotel number. As the phone was ringing, the front desk clerk emerged from around the corner and apologized but said she was not feeling well. She did get me checked in quickly and on to my room. My room was a little smaller than I... More

Mike M, Thank you for the 4-star review, and I'm terribly sorry about the poor first impression. I'm happy to see your room had everything you needed and a spacious bathroom. For a larger room, you may be more interested in a suite. I'd recommend the King Business Suite, which is one of our largest rooms in the hotel. I... More

Good hotel for a business trip. Quite in the evening at the bar so if you want just your business partners there you can. The best part was the breakfast. Full order breakfast with a free voucher for the breakfast. The waitress was extremely friendly and service was fast. That made the hotel worth being on the east side of... More

We booked this hotel in advance when traveling to Sturgis SD. Booked here cause we know that Holiday inn is always a nice place. Wasn't disappointed. Very clean, nice restaurant with good food. If I had anything to complain about it would be they need more luggage carts but not a big deal. Would definitely stay there again.

Sorry about the inconvenience with the luggage carts, we will have to be more diligent about returning them to the lobby whenever they are left upstairs or in a guest room. Thanks again, we'd love...

I asked at the desk when checking in if the children staying there for the "show Me Games" would be a problem - as we would be up early and need sleep for a long drive the next day. She assured me they were always kept in control. Sprinklers were set off by kids - firemen came to inspect rooms... More

Stopped in here to break up our business trip to Colorado. 3 adults in our party and we had the suite which features 2 beds and a pull out. The Internet was good. Hotel was clean inside and out. Service was excellent. Downside was no free breakfast.
