This was an upscale holiday inn. Great location just off the freeway next to the Columbia mall. Very modern lobby. There were elevators close to our room on the fifth floor that led to the lobby and elevators further down another corridor that were the best elevators to take to go to the outdoor courtyard pool. Very nice to have both the indoor pool and the outdoor pool to chose from. Enormous gym. The room itself was extra large with extra comfortable beds. Bathroom had some upscale touches. Plenty of cable channels to choose from, including the Disney channel, so the kids were happy. Our room door was a little tricky, for whatever reason when I closed it it didn't close all the way, so I'd have to give it an extra tug or push every time. That didn't bother me but in a hotel this nice, it could be something for them to fix. We were just driving through but after we checked in, we went to see the "Devil's Icebox" at Rock Bridge state park and that was a great quick outing. It's a sinkhole that leads to a cave entrance with a creek and since there's a cave, the sinkhole area is about twenty degrees cooler than the hot July temperatures. This was exactly 9.9 miles from the hotel.
