“great staff!!!!”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

I booked an event in one of their meeting rooms and was very pleased with the facility and attentiveness of the staff. In particular, Gregory Austin was very helpful and professional. I can recommend the sleeping rooms, presentation rooms, and the whole facility without reservation.

My daughter and I spent one Friday evening at this hotel. The hotel was very clean and in a location that was convenient with shopping and restaurants close by. The room was nice and bed was comfortable. However, it was a very rude awakening when it sounded like a freight train was coming though the room at 2:20 AM! I thought I was having a nightmare!

After finally returning to sleep I was awakened again about 4 AM to another train. Thought I was in a bad Seinfeld episode. We checked out early the next morning and I did not have a chance to ask management if the train was a recurring event or just a Friday night event.

Room Tip: Ask for a room far away from the train tracks!

Dear Kim,

I am so sorry to hear about your situation. I know the trains can be disturbing to some of our guests. If you are a light sleeper we encourage you to notify us on checkin so we can put you in an area that is more accommodating to your needs. However with that being said I will encourage you to reach out to me. I would like to do something for you, due to the disturbance you experienced. We pride ourselves on world class golden glove service. I hate to hear we did not live up to the standards we live by. You can reach me at the hotel main phone line.

Sincerely,
Joseph Skopp
OMM Manager

Woodmen of The World has monthly meetings of 40+ people at HGI every month and has been for the last several years. HGI is one of only a couple of full service hotels in the NE area. They have a great chef and very professional employees who are determined to make your event or overnight stay the best expereince. Our Managers can choose any hotel to stay at however, HGI is the choice for their overnight stay every month and HGI accommodates their every need including a reserved spot with an electric car hook up for one of the Managers. After our meeting each month the one comment we get is the meeting was great and so was the food. It's convenent to everything, professional, clean and very friendly.

Easy on / off Interstate 77 with a wide selection of places to eat. Great bed, ultra clean room, friendly professional welcoming staff, restaurant food exceptional, and all for a good price. Again the restaurant food was excellent. I would recommend this hotel for extended stays and weary travelers.

This hotel is very clean and comfortable. The location is in a safe surburban area, very convenient to I-77 in Northeast Columbia. Staff are always eager to make sure guests have an enjoyable and productive stay. Breakfast is great, and dinner/bar is very nice as well. I stay here multiple nights each year and have found it consistently excellent. Highly recommended!
