This Holiday Inn is one of my favorite places to stay. The beds are the perfect combination of soft but firm (wish my bed at home was like this), the restaurant makes a perfect omelet, and the staff is always welcoming with a smile. A couple of times per year the Missouri Gideons holds our state cabinet meetings here because...

The front desk was very efficient, there was a restaurant there that had friendly servers and served delicious food, the room and bed were well thought out and very nice...just the best HIE we've stayed in, ever.

Spent one night here. Nice clean room however, the bedding was terrible. Need to throw out the sheets and mattress pad. Was like sleeping on a bag of laundry. Told the front desk, hope they do something about it. About 3 miles to any decent eats.

GaryM1970, Thanks for taking the time to share your experience with us! I'm so sorry about the condition of your linens, this is is certainly not up to our standards.

This hotel has 8 Tesla chargers conveniently located at the rear of the hotel. They give Tesla owners their lowest rate and a 10% discount on food in their excellent restaurant. Extremely friendly staff at both the front desk and the restaurant. Great place to stay.

Great hotel to stay at in Columbia - I would stay there again for sure - Everything from the staff to rooms were A rated - Also they have a nice sports bar on the property that is nice to watch a game or grab a bite to eat without having to drive anywhere

My husband and I have stayed at many Holiday Inn as we are IHG rewards members. We were in Columbia for a basketball tournament. This hotel was one of the nicest holiday inns that we have stayed at. We upgraded to a suite which had a separate living room area. Very roomy, well appointed, and comfortable. The staff was wonderful,...

Booked through Priceline for around $75 well worth the money, it was nice, clean and quiet location. Kids liked the pool area as well. Had some noise above us at night and they, got them to quiet down. In addition gave us a voucher for breakfast.

Good: Nice place, very affordable. Business orientated, friendly staff. Not so good: Don't catch the breakfast restaurant when they are busy - you don't get served. Gymnasium has dated equipment and for the size of the hotel and really needs a larger room and more equipment - not worth visiting.
