I travel a lot on business and I choose Holiday Inn Express because they are usually a good place to stay. However, this one is not one of those. The facility is not maintained very well. I had brown water most of my stay. Toilette, sink, and shower. I was told that was normal and should clear up as the... More

Wow. It looks like we really dropped the ball there. I am sorry you had such an unpleasant experience. The water issue is a city problem that they have been working on for some time now. It generally clears quickly but it is unsightly early in the morning at times and I understand how it can impact your stay. I... More

We stayed here during our cross country move from east coast to west coast. It was very nice that our four legged family members were also welcome. Beds were comfortable, and room was relatively clean. Kids played in the pool, delivery for dinner, and breakfast was as expected in the morning. Good value.

We checked in late due to weather we encountered traveling. The front desk attendant was very courteous and made check in a breeze. We asked for a few things we had forgotten and she provided them all very quickly. The hotel is a little old, but is kept in very well condition. We did see a sheet in the room... More

Old & not up to IGH standards & check in person was rude. Had a hard time getting refund on unused days. Room was expensive & not worth the $$. Go some where else. Only a few choices here but much better on down I-10. Had to call Orbitz in order to get a refund. Front desk did not provide... More

Ok, the location is convenient and next to a stand of live oak trees. The staff is friendly and welcoming. Then there is the building and rooms: How does a hotel not 10 years old with a national brand name look like an off brand off the highway hotel gasping its last breath? Rooms have patched walls, plumbing poorly maintained,... More

Overall, the Holiday Inn Express in Columbus is a fairly comfortable hotel BUT the traffic and accompanying noise on US 10 is relentless. When I checked in and saw that my room was on the highway side, I asked to switch rooms, but the hotel clerk assured me that the traffic stopped early in the evening. It did not. The... More

We are sorry that you heard a lot of noise from the Freeway, we have oak trees in front of the hotel that acts as a barrier for the noise, since we had a full house we could not switch rooms for you, there are certain situations that are beyond are control. More

We did a last minute trip and the staff was friendly, room was clean and comfortable and breakfast was made an hour early and tasty. Definitely recommend. We are traveling from Houston to San Marcos and it is about half way. Bathrooms were clean and the shower was hot.
