ISO 14001

ISO 14001 is an internationally accepted standard that outlines how to put an effective environmental management system in place. It is designed to help businesses remain commercially successful without overlooking environmental responsibilities, such as:

• Improve their environmental performance constantly
• Comply with local and national regulations and other requirements subscribed
• Prevent water, air and ground pollution hazards
• Control and optimise water and energy consumption
• Promote waste recycling and recovery
• Raise environmental awareness among employees and train them to adopt good practices in their activity

ISO 50001

ISO 50001 is based on the management system model of continual improvement also used for other well-known standards such as ISO 9001 or ISO 14001. This makes it easier for organizations to integrate energy management into their overall efforts to improve quality and environmental management.

ISO 50001 provides a framework of requirements for organizations to:
- Develop a policy for more efficient use of energy
- Fix targets and objectives to meet the policy
- Use data to better understand and make decisions about energy use
- Measure the results
- Review how well the policy works, and
- Continually improve energy management.

The location is decently placed. The rooms seem very tidy upon arrival. Even though their breakfast service was alright, I have only seen no more than 5 people working there.

I enjoy staying at this hotel every time I’m in town for a work meeting. Front desk staff is always extra pleasant. Breakfast is actually good and fresh. They serve free dinner. It feels more like a homey hotel. I only removed one star because I don’t like the lighting in bathroom and vanity area, there was a blood stain the size of a nickel on my carpet right where I needed to stand to use the sink, and I don’t feel like the rooms are the cleanest hotel rooms I’ve stayed in. I usually walk around without shoes (yuck I know) but I feel kind of gross walking around without shoes in these rooms. Otherwise I do love it.

Room with 2 queens and sofa bed is good size with full kitchen. Kind of dated but comfy enough and pretty clean. Only had 3 towels in the room upon arrival. Only 3 pillows on the queen beds...was there a pillow shortage? Check in was smooth. Small parking lot so spaces fill up quickly. Breakfast was not great, pretty bland, most of the food was gone midway through, even the ice water ran out early...really? Oh, and the bathroom door didn't close properly so it couldn't be locked which was very annoying. Expected better accommodations for the money.

Pro's: -It was clean. No bugs. -Free breakfast every morning. Breakfast is decent: waffles, bagels, sausage, eggs, toast, juice, etc. -Free standard wifi has decent speed. Standard wifi is free if you are a Hilton Honors member. -Two complimentary bottles of water upon check-in. -Friendly staff! Cons: When I checked my bed, no bugs, but found strands of hair. This means that housekeeping re-made the bed after previous guest left instead of changing it out for fresh bed linens. Housekeeping & front desk staff were more than glad to rectify the situation.

Not as up to date as some Hilton's but overall great stay. The way the rooms are designed the doors can get in the way. Would stay again if in the area.

When I went to eat breakfast at the breakfast bar I found that they made omlets with peppers and onions. The attendant asked if I needed anything. With my diet plain eggs would be better. She said no problem and made me just plain scrambled eggs. Very nice. I definitely appreciated it. All the staff that my wife and I met were friendly and considerate. They are also pet friendly. A plus for sure in deciding where to stay.

The front desk staff and maid staff are super friendly. The hotel is clean and well maintained. The evening social is the treat of the stay. The gym suits fine for a short term stay but for a long term you will have to work out elsewhere.

Stayed at this hotel for a work event. It is a very nice hotel for the price, they have a military discount, they allow dogs up to 75lbs, very clean and quiet rooms. My only complaint about the stay is the incredibly over priced convenience counter (bring your own water) not a big deal considering how nice the hotel is I would love to stay again.

I typically do not write reviews but I felt that in this case one was needed. The rooms are a bit outdated and in need of some love. My bed was barely made each day. The sheets were not clean (gross) and the shower had hair in it - yuck. Another little lovely was that the wall in my bedroom had a hole in the wall. The staff at the desk and dining room area are extremely friendly and accommodating.

My mother in law had to move into this Homewood Suites while water damage was being repaired in her home. She, and we, could not have been more pleased with her stay. The staff treated her very kindly, her room was clean and bright, and everyone was very accommodating of her special requirements. She was safe, happy and comfortable - and we are truly thankful. The next time we have family coming into town, we will definitely bring them here!

I would have rated them five star but the front desk attendant lacked good customer service. She basically has no knowledge of her job and her communications skills under rate what Hilton chain stands for. I have stayed in thus same Homewood suites branch in the past and the receptionists were professional. Please give her more training on how to do her job because she definitely lacks required skills.

We had a wonderful stay at the hotel! My husband I booked our Bridal party there at a group rate. The manager there Elisa, took care of our every need including helping us create our own personal website for our guests that were attending the wedding! The rooms were very clean and comfortable and the next best thing to being at home! Their complimentary breakfast was a very nice perk in the morning. You can’t go wrong by staying here! We stayed there from 9/16-9/18 20 17. Veronica

This place is adequate. The air conditioning works great. The breakfast and dinner are standard for this type of hotel. Beds are firm, I prefer softer and the pillows are too soft. My bathroom was also not completely clean as there was home built up around the vent of the tub.

The room was fairly nice, lots of space and a comfortable bed. However, the room learly smelled like someone had smoked in it previous to me, and then the staff just sprayed a whole ton of fragrance to cover it up... But it still smelled. The bathtub had rust in it, but I don't care a whole lot about that. The staff was nice, and attentive.

Beautiful hotel with an outdoor pool and free breakfast. The rooms come with a small kitchen equipped with microwave mounted over the stove, refrigerator, coffeemaker and a kitchen table with 2 chairs. There is a sofa bed , Olive Garden, Bob Evans restaurant across the street and next door is a Friday's. Also there is an Asian buffet across the street. Close access to Rt 95.

We really liked this hotel. It was super clean. The pool was great and my kids loved the basketball court. The breakfast was exceptional for a free breakfast. Our room was large and comfortable. We liked it so much we are staying here again next weekend. We would recommend this hotel.

Great experience! Ideal location for a quiet stay on route to a destination. Quiet, clean, and great customer service. Rooms are well laid out and thought out.

Generally a good hotel but not as nice as other Homewood suites I've stayed at. Elevator is out this trip. When I come here I usually stay for two weeks, and the strangest thing is that the three times I've stayed at this hotel there have been fire alarms at least one night each time, usually somewhere between 2-3am.

Homewood Suites have overall been a good experience, but my last three stays (two at different locations) the first room I've been put in smelled heavily of cigarette smoke and I've needed to switch rooms. The staff have been friendly and accommodating and I even got a free upgrade last time, but the fact that it happens is a little aggravating and my next stay two weeks from now I'm anticipating another frustrating experience at check in.

Found this hotel on a website about dog-friendly accommodation. Traveling with two relatively large dogs that exceed the weight limit of many other hotels had previously caused us problems. No problem here! Booking was uncomplicated, front desk staff very nice, professional and helpful. Clean room, cozy bed, lots of blankets & pillows, hot shower, great breakfast. 24h gym and restaurants/shopping close by. Will definitely come here again if staying in the area.

Clean hotel, friendly staff and nice amenities. Rooms are well furnished and kitchenette well stocked. (Even had a wine key). Breakfast and mon-thurs light dinners were a nice bonus. Only drawbacks: front doors a pain to get in and out with luggage. Location also seems to be in flight path of airport but the sound insulation is pretty good and you can barely hear them.

I have to give them a low review. The first night there was great, room was nice and the area was quiet. On day 2 they began tearing up all the stairwells to put in new carpet. The glue smell quickly filled up the stairwells and by the end of day 2, it was completely down the halls. Day 2 also had no hot water when I returned home from a very expensive medical appt. So not only was it a super headache smell, but had to wait till hot water was back in the morning. The smell of glue by morning was so bad it was starting to enter the room, and I had to leave early because I just couldnt take it anymore. None of this was brought to my attention before booking my tickets, and my tickets were much higher rate than I was expecting, especially since they said it was military discounted. There was no compensation for my stay, regardless of the 2 times I complained, and when I checked out they only apologized and ensured they would get them to open windows. It's 90 degrees out and I was checking out, so I don't see how that helped much either. I understand when upgrades and stuff have to happen, they have to happen, but this made my stay a 2 star experience. I didnt make it a 1 star because the room, and the staff don't deserve a 1.

Room is clean and spacious. I've stayed here over 14 times in the past two years for work very convenient to get to major shopping areas and restaurants. Very close to major highways. Over the years I've noticed rowdy guests who are left unchecked. Mostly teenagers on school or family trips. Have caused some disturbance in the few stays over the last couple months.

My favorite hotel to stay in in Columbia. I travel for work, and normally spend 1 in 4 weeks in Columbia. This is my preferred hotel, but it's popular and isn't always available. I prefer this hotel over others for 2 reasons, the kitchen, and the separate bedroom. Having a full kitchen is great, i can buy cereal for breakfast and having a full fridge means i've got somewhere to store leftovers. Also having a separate bedroom is great, being able to close the door and not hear people in the corridor or doors slamming is great. Love the free dinner Mon-Thur, to be honest haven't tried the breakfast. I normally start work super early from my room, and it's more convenient to make breakfast in the room while i work. If my boss was to review this hotel he wouldn't be so kind. He's had many issues at this hotel, including AC not working, or the TV being broken), and prefers to stay at the Homewood in Hanover.

Check in was smooth (10:00PM). Room very clean. Everything worked. Well appointed. Breakfast was ample. Recommend showing at 6:15AM or later since all breakfast items were not available right at 6:00AM each day. Social hour and food was OK. WiFi was fast and always on. Business center had all needed services but the computers were slow. Probably need to be re-imaged. Plenty of parking available. Located near 3 decent restaurants in a quiet neighborhood. Checkout was OK but a bit slow. Overall good experience. Would stay again and recommend to others.
