I loved that it was close to everything , loved the service from all staff.

We really enjoyed our stay this past weekend. The staff was friendly and helpful, our room was clean and the breakfast was hot and plentiful. The location was ideal for what we had planned in Columbia.

Lots of little freebies like breakfast. No bar (sigh) but that is HI Express

Locatioin. General good quality. No problems at all.

Friendly, helpful staff. Easy and free parking, room was clean and the bed was soooo comfortable. We walked to dinner and to the Colonial Center. It was about a little over a mile each way but weather was good and we like to walk. Would stay there again.

Overall, it was a nice place to stay and in a good location. The only thing I didn't like was that they were doing some sort of construction that I wasn't made aware of before booking and my window had some sort of plastic wrap that you couldn't see through over it.

Convenient location to downtown Columbia, and the friendliest hotel staff you'll ever meet!

During our one night stay we're sadly noticed, that our room lacks of simple things, such as no outlets nor cellphone charging ports around both of night stands!?!?! Had to plug all of our devices all over the room. Feels like back in 90s'.. or even 80s'...

When I booked the hotel I had looked for a long time to find a smoking room in the area. The room was booked as a smoking room and upon arrival the hotel was 100% smoke free. Also after booking I realized the check in wasn't until 3, I called to see if I could check in early and they said no problem I could check in at 1:00. THe desk clerk was not very helpful once we arrived, seemed extremely bothered to help us with the early check in.

The rooms and service were great we weren’t very needy but were well taken care of

Overall nice hotel. Location convient a little noisy at night outside . Welcoming,and clean. Ice machine wasn't working on the 4th floor.

Located on a 4 lane BUSY highway, that seems to have heavy traffic deep into the night. The facility itself is spotless and new. The ground immaculate. But if your room is on the backside next to the 4 lane roadway, forget about getting a good nights sleep. Constant heavy loud noises woke us up until the very wee hours of the morning. We overslept a bit because our nights sleep was constantly interrupted. The breakfast was excellent with a decent variety of food choices, fresh fruits and breads.

Got a great suite with a whirlpool tub. I was expecting an average room but quite the surprise when I got a suite with the tub, huge bathroom and shower and separate bedroom. Staff was great and free happy hour and breakfast was included.

The hotel was nice. Clean with friendly staff. It is on the outskirts of the city so its a pretty long walk to food and nightlife.

The hotel is nice and fairly convenient to the restaurants and night life. My only disappointment was that I was in a room near the rear exit and it wreaked of smoke. Luckily I travel with Lysol. Otherwise, nice experience.

The hotel is conveniently located to USC campus and downtown shops and restaurants. Staff was friendly. Free breakfast was about average. Hotel was clean, service prompt and efficient.

We stayed here while in town for business event. Close to stadium and lots if restaurantsin downtown vista area.

At first it's seem fine inside the hotel room. 'Til I started feeling sick inside the room. I noticed that when I'm away from the hotel I'm fine. But as soon as I get back in. I Felt sick again. Then noticed the signs posted around the hotel of the renovation. Then I realized that's what make me felt sick. And also the hotel keys doesn't work halves the times. It's very annoying to kept going up and down to the service desk to get another keys. And don't forget that I feeling sick at the same time. This is horrible. Its really ruined my trip to South Carolina for the first time.

Great room, LOVED the tub and bathroom. Bed was super comfortable.

Work is bringing me back to Columbia, SC. Will definitely be staying at the Holiday Inn Express & Suites.
