Traveling through on hunting trip. Needed a place to pull off that would be safe and secure where our boat and truck would be safe. Desk clerk was rude and hung up on us the first attempt to make reservations, luckily he left when we called back. Everyone refused to allow us to

Thank you so much for providing us with your feedback regarding your stay. I apologize that you had such a poor experience, and I would very much like to discuss this further with you personally! With Tripadvisor, I do not have access to any reservation or guest information. We hold our staff to a high level of customer service, and I would like to find out who on my staff acted this way and address it immediately! If you would like to reach out to me directly, my name is Melony Roe and I am the General Manager. Again, thank you for bringing this to my attention and I look forward to speaking with you directly.

Quincy, Wow what an excellent review about your stay and especially Steven! We just love him; he is a superb example of our level of customer service! I'm also so pleased to hear that the food was above and beyond. Our chef, Gilberto, has been with us for 8 years and really knows his stuff! We would love to host you again the next time you are in Columbia.

My family was traveling to GA from CO when our newly turned 2yr old decided to vomit all over herself in the car and car seat. Just some tummy issues from travel. We went to the hotel for some fast clean up. Travis Orr helped us out big without asking too many questions

As a full service Holiday Inn we have an on-site restaurant, Kem's, that serves a sit-down breakfast off the menu. However, we do have certain rates that include a breakfast voucher, usually good for two adults. I'd recommend our Best for Breakfast rate! There is no additional charge for a mini fridge and, in fact, all of our rooms have one as well as microwave, coffee maker, iron, and hairdryer.

"Even near the elevator was still quiet."
"We had two rooms on the fifth floor and had no issues with environment or amenities."
"Skip the light and noise pollution and stay here. Hotel is only two miles from the heart of Columbia."
