Stopped in here to break up our business trip to Colorado. 3 adults in our party and we had the suite which features 2 beds and a pull out. The Internet was good. Hotel was clean inside and out. Service was excellent. Downside was no free breakfast.

SlickNEO, Thanks for letting us accommodate you during your stop in Columbia. I'm happy to hear you had an overall enjoyable stay with us, and the word "clean" truly never gets old to us!

This was an easy stop on the map between St Louis and Kansas City so our expectations was faulty roadside typical. Pleasantly surprised by the relatively high spec of the property and the unexpected high quality of service. University towns tend to get better service, probably because of the students working part time so that's a huge plus. All in...

Marissa F, Front Office Manager at Holiday Inn Columbia East, responded to this review

SkypeDaddy, I'm elated to hear how we exceeded your expectations! Regardless of our location, we have a very high standard of service and are so proud of our students and non-students on staff. They all work very hard and we really appreciate the acknowledgment. Have a safe trip, and we would happily host you again on your way back home!

Toilet ran constantly. Maintenance worked on it, still ran continuous. Sprinklers set off by kids, ruined 4 rooms and caused a lot of hassle for a lot of people. Pool closed for maintenance part of our stay. Elevator floor looked like it had drops of blood on it. Overall, not a great experience. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Lisa M, Thanks for the review! I'm so sorry we did not follow-up with you after the initial toilet repair, and for the inconvenience of the pool being closed. I found your reservation and will be writing a work order for the toilet so that we can fix it once and for all. I'm afraid our pool had a very...

Back in the day, Holiday Inn was the "Safe" "default" choice for American families seeking clean and hospitable lodging along the highway. Over the years, many of those Holiday Inns have not aged well, and sometimes renovation efforts have not done much good. The Holiday Inn East in Columbia, Missouri, has been made over and has a lovely lobby and...

Thanks for your feedback, Dave 11974! I'm glad you liked our lobby and restaurant! Our property turns 6 years old this August and has not yet needed renovations, but I'm sorry to hear that other Holiday Inns have fallen short. Your comfort is very important to us, and we never get tired of hearing the word "clean!" I hope you...

Checked in early evening, no line to wait in and greeted very friendly. Check in was very quick and I was given a great room on the top floor. Getting to the room was easy and once inside I was very pleased with the cleanliness.

This Holiday Inn is one of my favorite places to stay.
