"Holiday Inn Express New Columbia"
This was our first time here and we were pleased with our room. Only complaint was there were no towels or wash cloths left in the room the second night we were there we had to go ask for some. There could be a grab bar in the shower also, but otherwise the hotel was clean and comfortable. Nice heated pool and hot tub. We drove to Shade Mountain Winery […] in Middleburg on Saturday which was about a half hour away from the hotel. Nice quiet area and a Bonanza restaurant is right up the street from this hotel. Otherwise it is a quite remote area unless you're there for a specific reason. Will stay agsain next year I am sure! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"stayed one night"
Stayed one night and did not get to use available services (pool, exercize room). For overnight stay was very good. Did not get to check out neighborhood and surrounding area due to length of stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"newly renovated and very close to Bucknell"
This hotel is within a 5 minute drive, right up the road from Bucknell on Rt. 15. Everything in the hotel has been newly renovated (except perhaps the mattresses). The beds were only so comfortable, but everything else was great. The breakfast buffet was convenient, offering eggs, sausages, cereal, coffee, fruit, bagels and juice. Parking was also convenient. […] We went for Bucknell Parent's weekend and wish we could have this hotel for graduation, but they are already sold out for 2012. Word to the wise, Bucknell parents...book your hotel for graduation at least a year in advance. This hotel is very convenient and was a pleasant experience. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A great chain"
This one is like all the others we have stayed in this year. Clean, comfortable, well-appointed, excellent staff. Holiday Inn Express hotels seem to be sprouting everywhere and it's very nice to know that by choosing this chain you know exactly what to expect and you get good value.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Holiday Inn Express in New Columbia, PA"
Our stay was a last minute reservation due to a death in the family and they were more than accomidating to us as when we where leaving to go we had to add another person to the room. A rollaway bed was waiting (that was actually comfortable) and extra towels. The staff was very friendly too. Would stay there again when we are visiting family down that […] way.

"Comfortable hotel, currently being remodeled"
We stayed here 4 nights while attending the 2011 Little League World Series in Williamsport, PA. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the room was clean and comfortable. They were currently in the process of remodeling the hotel, but we were not bothered by the construction in any way. The breakfast was decent.....hot and cold items to choose from. […] Our only complaint was finding a good place to eat dinner when we returned to the hotel as there were not alot of options close by. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not a bad place to stay"
room did not include a refrigerator, front desk stated that only some rooms had them.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Had a great night sleep"
Had a great night sleepGenuine Expedia guest review
While the rating for this hotel was only 2.5 stars believe it should be higher! Our room was clean with good mattresses and well appointed. Service was good and had easy access to Route 80.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We rented 5 separate rooms. One of the rooms smelled so strongly of smoke that we had to have the room changed. It was a typical HI Express, nothing special but nothing terrible either.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lacking attention to details"
Room was clean. Beds and pillows were very comfortable. We had to move from first room because of noise. Second room had a shower curtain that didn't fit right because the rod wasn't secured properly. Overall stay was fine, but not the best Holiday Inn Express experience we've had.Genuine Expedia guest review
For a budget hotel just off the highway the New Columbia Holiday Inn Express was not bad. Bed was good, room was clean and the free breakfast, unlike many other chains, was not bad. I have stayed their twice while on Business in Lewisburg and plan to stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Pillow need to be replaced with more COMFORTABLE ones. All were very lumpyGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"HIE New Columbia - Little League World Series"
Hotel was good, people very friendly, good breakfast, great room, but thought the rate was steep for the distance back to South Williamsport. Rate was probably increased due to Little League World Series.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Angenehme Unterkunft bei verkehrsguenstiger Lage"
Das Hotel liegt in unmittelbarer Naehe an der Interstate 80 und ist doch sehr ruhig. Der Service war sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend. Das Zimmer war sehr sauber und wohl aufgrund einer gerade abgeschlossenen Renovation mit neuen Betten und Moebeln ausgestattet. Das Fruehstueck war sehr gut und frisch. DIe Tische wurden regelmaessig von Servicekraeften […] gereinigt und das Bueffet wurde regelmaessig aufgefuellt. Das einzige Manko hier war der Pool, der etwas aelter und nicht ganz auf dem neuesten Stand war. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"No hot water"
Upon realizing we had no hot water in our room, I call the front desk. She told me she would check the hot water heater and to try again in 10 minutes. I tried 10 minutes later, still no hot water. Call the front desk and the response was basically, you're the only 1 with his problem, sorry. Well, I need to bathe my children so what can we do? Her solution was to move rooms. With a 5 year old, 3 year old, and two suitcases full of things unpacked, that was out of the question. Could we take a shower in a different room? No. Why not? They would have to clean 2 rooms if they moved us anyway, right? After she called the general manager, she allowed us to shower in a room a floor above. Not accommodating whatsoever, not helpful, not a good experience.
"Here for a wrestling tournament"
07/17/14 Fran C Ridley Park, Pennsylvania
Property is just average. We stayed here 2 nights for a wrestling tournament. I feel as our room was extremely dusty, not dirty just dusty. I noticed that there was dust strings hanging from the curtains, and ceilings also the furniture was very dusty. My 10 year old pointed it out to me right away. There was a white powder like baby powder on the desk chair and the door of the dresser. Before getting settled in I had to take a damp tissue and wipe everything down. Other than that the bathroom was clean and beds where not bad. Pool was nice kids used it 3 x while there and 2 out of the 3x they had no dry towels. I would stay here again but would look into booking somewhere else first. Just a bit dissapointed since I stay at Holiday Inn express before and they seemed much nicer.

Standard Holiday Inn Express. Clean, decently sized rooms with microwave and fridge. Comfortable bed. Standard breakfast. Almost nothing in walking distance, but plenty a short drive away. Close to the highway but I had a room on the back side and wasn't bothered by noise at all.
"Nice Functional Hotel."
06/17/14 Erik K Emmitsburg, Maryland
We stayed here while at a swim meet at Bucknell University. Some families wanted to camp, we did not, so a hotel near the camp ground was chosen. A somewhat modern hotel in a rural setting. A well kept, nice and clean travel hotel. About 15 min from Bucknell, a mall, a movie theatre, and chain restaurants. My only knocks were that the pool is small (even after swimming all day they still want to go to the pool), every day we had to ask for a forth towel (4 people in our room) and the pillows were terrible (usual hotel stuff). All in all a great value in a central location. Would definitely stay here again.
"Great value for the money"
Great value for the money. Just know that it is a short drive (5-10 minutes) to Lewisburg. The front desk people were very nice. The complimentary breakfast was average, but the hotel was clean & felt newer. I would stay there again if traveling in Pennsylvania.
"Great Overnight Stay"
05/28/14 NJ-Tennessean Newton, NJ
We stayed here for one night before heading to Knoebels Amusement Park. The location is conveniently off the interstate. A number of restaurants and stores are available a few miles down the road in Lewisburg. Overall I was very pleased with everything about the stay. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the rate was reasonable. They have an indoor pool which my daughter enjoyed using. Internet service is available in the lobby. The breakfast was more than adequate and had a decent variety of food options including many nutritious options which seem to be lacking in many hotels. It met all my expectations so I would definitely stay here again.
"Good one, everything done right"
05/11/14 randgust Warren
Stopped on a one-nighter for business, everything just worked. Flawlessly. From checkin, all features, fittings, features, cleanliness, everything just exactly as it should be. Breakfast probably a cut above in terms of execution on a convention HIX. And I stay at a lot, it's a formula, so there are not a whole lot of differences and you have to really dig in the small details to find many differences at all. I seriously can't think of one little detail that went wrong, so you get a rare 5 from me. Glad this is here because my last visit to this area was memorably, terribly, bad in a motel just down the road.
"The Best Holiday Inn Express I've Ever Stayed In"
05/07/14 nhkiwi Center Ossipee, New Hampshire
From the first email contact to the last, this hotel was extremely good. I was greeted by a very friendly and helpful front desk person. The room was wonderfully quiet and the towels and sheets were immaculate. The breakfast area was kept very clean and the food plentiful. The gentleman that checked me out was very nice. It's one of the best hotel stays I've ever had. I'd recommend this place to anyone. Very very good quality hotel at a reasonable price. Thank you :)
"Pricey when we stayed, but nice room & pet friendly"
03/18/14 Barb S Elysburg, Pennsylvania
We were traveling with our dog and this was the only place we could find in the area that accepted pets. The lowest priced room on the night we stayed was $152 (plus a $20 pet fee). There were other less expensive (around $100) places, but we were stuck due the pet issue. Looking today, the rooms are only $96, so I can only assume the higher rate was based on the hotel having fewer rooms. There were people at breakfast that sounded like they were in town for some high school swim team event. The hotel is nice (quite new), convenient to get to and the staff was friendly. We were put on the first floor near an exit (room 103), which worked perfectly - easy access to unload our car (and dog) and get right into the room. My only complaint was the heating unit. It was a cool night (mid-20's) and the unit cycled on and off all night. I am a fairly light sleeper, and I had a hard time ignoring it. My husband, on the other hand, said he heard it, but it did not bother him. Breakfast was good, there was a good variety and the food was decent. I've had better, but definitely had a LOT worse.
"Nice hotel but OVERPRICED"
03/15/14 Sas128 Allentown, Pennsylvania
Nice hotel and clean plus Convenient/Close location to Bucknell. BUT we booked our rooms in advance to ensure room for states and just prior to check in saw that same type room was approx. $40.00 cheaper per nite. After calling them twice a couple days before to see if they'd match price, they refused which we found very unfair and unappreciative of our business. And unfortunately u have to cancel reservation at least 3 or 4 days in advance to avoid being charged for room. (Which is very unusual for large chain hotel). Also, not sure if all rooms are same but 2 of our rooms had no bathroom fans. If in area again probably wouldn't stay here again due to their unwillingness to match lower rate for existing reservations and offering lower rates to last minute customers.
