Once again, I was very pleased with the service the hotel gave and I would recommend this hotel to just about everyone. I also enjoyed the in house restaurant, the food is really good and it is very convenient for someone that doesn't have to go out of the hotel to get food. They also bring the food to your... More

Left a personalized message wishing me luck for an interview. Was incredibly thoughtful. Very cheap on Hotwire with great value. Also appreciated the Keurig in each room. Hotel was clean and easy to access and was away from majority of traffic.

While passing through we stopped here and found the hotel to be very nice, we'll appointed, and comfortable. The on-site restaurant was also enjoyable for both our dinner and breakfast with good cheerful service. WiFi was troublesome but they should have that worked out. We won't hesitate to stop here again on our way through.

Unlike most desk clerks we have encountered, we found the one at this property to be very impersonal. She seemed more concerned about being "professional" than friendly. Our room was clean, quiet, and well lit. The property has its own restaurant. There are not many other dinning choices without driving back to Columbia. We have stayed at many Holiday Inn... More
