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.

Thanks for stopping and staying with us, Ericdjr! I'm glad we met your expectations and that you got a chance to try out Kem's Restaurant. 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

rgreene5, I'm so sorry you happened to stay during the fire sprinkler fiasco! During our high occupancy, and Show Me Games weekends in particular, we have security on site that will patrol the hallways to discourage running/shouting in the common areas. However, there is only so much we can oversee and control as far as what occurs in the guest... 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.

This was an easy stop on the map between St Louis and Kansas City so our expectations was faulty roadside typical. Pleasantly surprised by the relatively high spec of the property and the unexpected high quality of service. University towns tend to get better service, probably because of the students working part time so that's a huge plus. All in... More

Toilet ran constantly. Maintenance worked on it, still ran continuous. Sprinklers set off by kids, ruined 4 rooms and caused a lot of hassle for a lot of people. Pool closed for maintenance part of our stay. Elevator floor looked like it had drops of blood on it. Overall, not a great experience. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Back in the day, Holiday Inn was the "Safe" "default" choice for American families seeking clean and hospitable lodging along the highway. Over the years, many of those Holiday Inns have not aged well, and sometimes renovation efforts have not done much good. The Holiday Inn East in Columbia, Missouri, has been made over and has a lovely lobby and... More
