This Holiday Inn was Nice, Clean , and Friendly Place to Stay. I have stayed there on more than one occasion and will return. Only downside breakfast not included, but you you do have choice of breakfast bar or ordering off menu.

I was not overly impressed with this particular hotel. The rooms were clean, but the bathtub and shower were so slippery, we were afraid we would fall. We ended up standing on a towel in the shower. Also, the conference center at the hotel (Medallion Center) left a lot to be desired. Even though our conference had been booked for...

I have stayed at about every hotel near Ft Jackson. The Holiday Inn is the best bang for the buck. Staff is friendly and the location is great for the base. Lots of nice places to go near by as well. The breakfast was delicious. The Jacuzzi tub is excellent and very relaxing after a tough day.

This is one of the oddest hotel room we have ever stayed at. The room is spacious but clearly needs some redesigning. You walk in directly to the sleeping area with a king bed and comfortable bedding except the pillows were way too soft. Then there is an iron railing with a step down into a large sitting area with...

Great hotel, affordable, clean and very friendly and accommodating staff. When we arrived, staff were so accommodating and check-in was hassle free. The breakfast that they served was very awesome. The hotel itself is very accessible to restaurants, shops and other close by landmarks.

We arrived late, check in was a breeze, the room was really nice and spacious. Breakfast was very good and the entire facility from room to breakfast area to business center was clean. The hotel was unexpectedly stylish.

Arriving at 5:00 pm I would have thought that the coupon rate of $89 would still be available. However, the best price offered was $119.99 which translates to $134.39 with tax.
