We were very happy with our stay at this location. I expected it to be loud since it is right at the airport and planes were going in and out, but it was very, very quiet. Perfect for a family traveling and very tired!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sara1876 Really nice hotel!
I have stayed in this hotel several times recently for work purposes and it has been just wonderful. Great service, super clean rooms and the beds and pillows are super comfortable. I have never had any issues with anything. The pool and hot tub are clean and well maintained. Everything is great and I look forward to another stay soon!

I can't say enough about the Holiday Inn by the airport in Bloomington, IL. It was clean, beds were comfortable, hallways were quiet and staff was very accommodating. Baxter's Restaurant connected to the hotel which made it easier to just have dinner and go to bed!!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Angie1234 Yearly get together with college roommate and kids-Bad experience!
Check-in went well, front desk clerk fine. Went to Baxters, good food and service.
Next day we had issues!!! Our kids wanted to go swimming. We went down to find out the pool was closed. Sign said "Pool is closed Sunday, Aug 2-August 8". It was August 2..but August 2 was a Saturday. Day/date did not match. Front desk clerk said it was closed due to painting!! So went to the Bloomington waterpark all day. When we returned there was a puddle of water in front of the elevator. We asked the clerk why the pool was open. "Oh the day was right, but the date was wrong...it will be painted beginning tomorrow!" Incompetent!!
When we returned that evening a girl was sleeping in the lobby. She looked a little messed up. When we came down the next morning she was still there with blanket in the lobby.!! She slept there in the lobby all night ! She approached us to buy her cigarettes! Why was she still there? Why was the police not called?? Unsafe!
We also noticed the water container with sliced fruit was empty and coffee was running low too. Maybe petty, but why were the morning beverages taken care of the night before?

I've stayed at this property numerous times and it's nice and has great amenities. On my most recent stay I believe I forgot my eyeglasses in the room. I contacted the hotel twice and after 5 days of no response I’ve concluded that they must not have been found. Previous to this incident it took me 2 requests to have a copy of my bill emailed back to me. Staff and service is a component of guest rating, I’d suggest that you not limit your service to just that before checkout…it makes it more unappealing to return to your hotel.

We have been here on two different times and the rooms, beds, are fine.
The Wifi just doesn't work. This really needs improvement!
As you know our lives depends on electronic devices! A plus at a hotel is to have excess to wifi!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by BillTheITGeek Nice, convenient hotel
I have no big complaints about the HI at the Bloomington Airport. The room was nice-sized, bed was comfortable, and bathroom was fine. It was nice having 3 good restaurants within walking distance.
My biggest problem was with the clientele that was there last weekend and with the lack of soundproof-ness of the room. The hotel was packed with ill-behaved brats whose parents had no problem allowing them to run up and down the halls making a terrible racket the entire time. Apparently there were two sports tournaments in town, and a number of the families apparently thought that meant "let's stay at a hotel and let the kids run wild". Normally I could just close my door and let it pass, but the walls and doors of this hotel would not insulate the sound.
So on a regular business trip, during the week, this would probably not be an issue. But this weekend stay was a noisy and irritating one...not necessarily the fault of the HI staff/management, but the fault of irresponsible parents and of an architect who designed the building without sufficient soundproofing.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by kmdbike The good and bad
The good... The folks serving breakfast were very, very nice and helpful. The room was clean and quiet. The AC worked great.
The bad.... Reserved a suite with a king size bed and were told because of a computer error we were put in a suite with two queen size beds. The bed we slept on really needs to be replaced. There was no cover on the back of the TV remote in the bedroom so the batteries kept falling out. There was only one outlet by the beds so we had to unplug the clock to use that outlet.

I stayed here for a wedding. It was a nice place to stay for a night. I lost my dress there and while they didn't find it, they were really nice about it. I don't know about an extended stay, but it was great for a night.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by not-happy Nice bed, poor service, bad experience with hotel staff
I would be very skeptical to recommend this hotel to anyone for anything other than a quick stay. The staff wasn't very friendly or accommodating and we had a bad experience with the bar staff at a wedding reception in the hotel. The bar staff first said that we could bring in some bottles of wine of our own (before booking the hotel) for a congratulatory toast to the bride and groom. On the day of the reception everything changed, we could bring the wine in, set it on the table, but NOT allowed to open the wine! Bare in mind that there were plenty of drinks purchased from the hotel bar as normal, the wine we brought in were only for toasting the wedding couple. Very bad experience!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Monty20 Overall Great Experience
This is overall a great hotel in a great location The desk staff is always friendly & Baxters is a excellent place to eat attached to hotel. However the lady who was responsible for breakfast was awful. Very unfriendly & I was 1 of 2 ppl at breakfast but I couldn't even get a refill on coffee & water. The breakfast is buffet so this is all she has to do. She was more interested in talking with coworker than serving. But other than that experience, everything else continues to exceed my expectations. This is still my "go to" hotel for the Bloomington area.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Safari_Road_Warrior Platinum Member Thrown Out & Maid won't make bed
Almost a very good hotel unless you are a road warrior who might be at a particular location for months. Then, the special treatment you are entitled to as a Platinum member is not given in the same measure as it is at other locations nationally. Staff (and management) is apparently not trained to be customer centered.
1. The hotel threw me out due to a reservations error. Somehow, I needed to stay an extra day longer than my online reservation allowed. I am a Platinum member so this has happened before (I stay in your hotels more than I do @ home). I have always been accommodated. Rather than try to squeeze me in, I was told I could pack my luggage up and leave it at the desk. Desk clerk was hardly understanding and management simply repeated the luggage offer. No offer to find me something else in town & apparently they were 100% sure every guest would show up that evening. I was sort of thrown out. I will never stay in that hotel again & as I have business in BMI every week for the next year, I suspect I'll go to another chain as the HIExpress locations are not quite my style every week for 6 months-1 year.
2. The maid leaves a note that we are unable to make your bed because it is our policy not to move any items. I have stayed over 1,000 nights @ IHGs in the last few years & never got this one either. I have a CPAP machine and part of the mask was left on my pillow. Why can't the maid move it as they do elsewhere? I can see not cleaning the bed if a suitcase is on it or something...perhaps.
In sum, I'm afraid you are losing me as a guest in Bloomington (where I expect to be working the rest of the year) due to this property's poor treatment of guests and odd management style.

Don't expect friendly staff or a quiet stay. Recently remodeled but poorly done. Comfortable mattress and pillow but LOUD environment. Watch out for the SCALDING water in the shower, could be dangerous (not exaggerating).
