Great breakfast, excellent pool. Our air conditioner had a smell and made the room smell. Hotel has an old feel and is in need of refurbishment. Shower rod was falling down. Otherwise, good staff and good food.

Stayed there with my 3 kids for 3 nights (husband joined us the 2nd night). When we arrived we were greeted well, the lady at the front desk took my 2 older kids to the breakfast area and offered them cookies and juice. Kids liked that very well. Really wish I would had grabbed her name, think she told me... More

Great staff...super friendly. Extremely clean and everything is new. Breakfast was well done and kept fresh. Very convenient to stay...just off I-20. Nice swimming pool for the kids. Surrounded by great places to eat and only minutes to a great outdoor shopping mall. We will definitely stay here again.

Our family was very happy with our stay at this Holiday Inn Express. The staff was absolutely exceptional, from check-in to check-out. The only issues we had were very minor, just a poorly functioning ice machine on the third floor and a sticky floor in the same room. Aside from that, the hotel was in perfect condition, with attractive décor... More

My husband and 2 kids stayed here on a Saturday night. The rooms were very clean and had a pretty big fridge, microwave, and a Keurig coffeemaker. The beds were comfortable and it was very quiet.

Traveling through the area, we stopped at this Holiday Inn Express. The room was very clean and the shower great with strong and hot water. In a hurry, the next morning, we skipped breakfast so can't comment on it. I would recommend this hotel with no reservations.

Since the rain from Tropical Storm Colin was hitting me sideways, I decided to stop short of my goal and at this hotel. Not only was the front counter receptionist herself a biker, she allowed me to keep the bike under the entry way and also gave me a room where I could watch out for the bike as well.... More

The family and I stopped over in Columbia on a trip and stayed at the holiday inn express on frontage road. The rooms were very good and a friendly staff at the front desk. There are several resturants in the area close for dinner or lunch. The breakfast was also very good.
