Stayed here in March doing a college tour. Clean rooms, complimentary hot breakfast, 10 minute walk to downtown, complimentary happy hour, great staff. What more can I say? This place is awesome! Was very pleasantly surprised. Will stay here again if my son goes to USC.

Stayed one night in order to attend a wedding. The hotel was very accommodating, both with a slightly early check-in and a late check-out. Breakfast was the normal free breakfast fare, i.e. scrambled eggs, sausage, etc. Room was clean enough. The only issue that I really had is that as a Rewards Club member, I was never acknowledged nor given so much as a free bottle of water. Also, the hotel has a very scant pantry, and does not carry any beer or wine in the pantry for sale. I have seen m... Read more

Clean, modern lobby, wifi, nice pool area. We stayed on first floor back toward parking lot, was very quiet. The Taylor street location makes it possible to walk a few blocks and be in the Vista area where all the restaurants are located. I enjoyed sitting outside by the pool to read, it seemed like a safe secure area for a woman alone. I did not participate but the hotel has free happy hour -2 drinks per person and has free breakfast. Staff was nice and let us check in early. Would stay here a... Read more

The prices for hotels in downtown Columbia are outrageous because it is a so-called historic district. This hotel is as good as it get in downtown Columbia in terms of value. Just choose a room facing away from the parking lot. Holiday Inn is so concerned about car safety at the parking lot that the lights are suitable for a baseball stadium. They're really bright, so you will have to close your curtains tight to be able to sleep. :-)

Decided to stay here as a base for playing golf and watching the Masters. Great town with plenty of restaurants and bars to spend the evenings enjoying yourself. Being Masters week, the rooms were pricey, which pretty much occurs at all places within a 90 mile radius of Augusta and we booked relatively late so if you plan to be at the Masters, book early. Decent sized room for my buddy and I, free breakfast got us going in the morning and located close to where you want to be.

Our family traveled to Columbia for a weekend baseball tournament. On arrival to the hotel we experienced a very warm welcome from the front desk lady. She stated that she was a new employee, but she was very friendly and knowledgeable. The room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast had a nice variety, with hot and cold items to chose from. The property location is a little difficult to get into. We had to do a U turn when we arrived. Also, the fitness area is very lacking. The elliptical ... Read more

This was one of those short trips, in and out of Columbia in two days. Great place to stay, the staff were friendly and helpful. Loads of eating joints around and ease of commuting. The hotel is centrally location, very close to the office premises as well as education centers.

The hotel itself was clean and comfortable. I did feel the bed was not supportive enough, though. The breakfast was really good. They have a pancake machine where pancakes come out through rollers. Pancakes were a little tough, but still not too bad. Now, here is why I won't stay here again. They put a $100 hold on my credit card - in case I caused damage to the room. We were travelling to other cities and if every place did that, my credit limit could have been met with holds! What about... Read more

It is very nice and clean. Staff is very friendly. Our kids even mentioned the breakfast lady because she was so nice. She definitely loves her job. ??? The front desk handed us more towels when asked with no questions or tell us someone will be there later which was nice. The only thing that was disappointing was the $100 hold on your credit card which they do tell you in advance. The lobby furniture is pretty but not comfortable.

The AC nearly drove me out is was so cold. Once I got that under control, everything else was a breeze. Large room, comfortable bed, nice furnishings, well appointed bathroom, clean, and GOOD LIGHTING! Nice towels, plenty of hot water and room on the vanity, hook on bathroom door for hanging clothes. Great.

I ended up here at the insistence of a colleague who read the reviews and claimed it was great, overall I think this place is decent. It has a decent enough breakfast, a pool, and it's not too expensive. The issue really is the beds and rooms. The beds are way too soft, I ended up with a backache from the bed; walls are thin, I could hear another guest coughing; they have wall AC units that are ridiculously loud (good thing I travel with earplugs); use very strong smelly stuff for the lobby whi...

I stayed here on business. I felt safe here, but I found the hotel to be a bit dated. The pool is just outside the front door, adjacent to the parking lot. The hotel is technically in walking distance to downtown, but I did not see many people walking in this area, and it would be a long-ish to go grab some food. I wouldn't do at night here because it is just on the edge of town. The wifi was terrible, and I really needed it to work. The evening staff at the front desk was friendly, but the mor... Read more

I stayed here with a friend to visit the capitol building and Univ. of SC campus. It was very close to the capitol and downtown. Also close to the State Museum which is well worth a visit especially if you like Civil War history. The hotel is very clean and newly renovated. Our room was very nice with new bedding, fridge, microwave and good internet. The happy hour from 5:30-7:30 was an unexpected nice touch. Front desk staff and ladies working the food area were very friendly and helpful. ... Read more

I stay at this hotel reluctantly when I am on call for the hospital that I work for. I say reluctantly because they have a contract with my hospital for direct billing to the hospital when I or another employee needs to stay there; however, the staff does not understand what direct billing means and makes me give them my credit card each time I stay there, and EVERY SINGLE TIME I then get billed for the room. Then I have to jump through hoops of fire to get my money back. Steven at the front des... Read more

Stayed for one night during a recent visit to area. Lobby area is clean spacious and nice. Check in was efficient. Breakfast standard fare for HI express. Good location for downtown access. Standard clean rooms. Access can be a little tricky due to one way street. Better than average.

Stayed for one night while in town for a conference. The hotel was centrally located and was very close to the capitol building. The lobby and rooms were very clean and spacious. The lady working at the front desk was also nice. Breakfast was relatively good, as far as hotel food goes. Would stay here again because of the good location and price.
