On our way to HHI from Ohio, we stayed at a Holiday Inn Express in Columbia, South Carolina. This location was beautiful for a HIE - see my other review from last week.

We wanted to stay at this Holiday Inn based on our past good Holiday Inn experiences. What a disappointment!!!

Holiday Inn Express is a favorite road travel brand of mine but this hotel was a major disappointment from poor customer service to way too few parking spaces to way overpriced for a minimally clean room that sits right next to the interstate.

If driving east-bound, just watch out for the very sharp exit off the Interstate. We were towing a heavy auto transport trailer, so it was unexpected and a little intense.
