Overall your standard Holiday Inn express, with clean rooms, good breakfast, etc. The piece that I thought set this apart a little from the rest was the friendliness of the staff. Little notes written on the bananas and a nice thank you on my bill tells that the staff truly cares!

Much larger hotel than your typical holiday inn express and my room was also exceptionally large. Check in was very simple and they had a manager reception going on with free beer. It's in a fairly nice area in town with several things around it for both dinner and shopping.

Our Nebraska family lives in and around Columbus, so this is a great option for us. The staff is amazing. The rooms are immaculate. Breakfast is fast, and typical but solid for the setting.

This was a nice quiet, clean, and comfortable Hotel. It was a nice place to park the motorcycle after a long day on the road. Eunice and Kelly were very helpful as I was having problems with my app and wanted to use points. They were just very nice. Restaurant/Bar next door was nice with a great waiter.

A customer friendly hotel, very clean, good breakfast, a hospitality evening time with beer, wine, lemonade and snacks. The room layout is excellent, the lobby is nice but the best part of this hotel is the friendly greeting, making one feel welcomed.
