Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JamesK144 This is my local constant
This is a great place to stay for people who (like me) drive in to Bloomington / Normal from the east -- (IL 9). Or if you are using BMI / CIRA, there is a nice attached restaurant (Baxter's American Grille) and a Buffalo Wild Wings next door. But just beyond that is Avanti's ... sigh ... http://avantisbloomington.com/ -- YUMMM! The main reason I stay here annually is to snatch some Avanti's for the road trip home. PIZZA BREAD RULES!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by stay away forever Worst Customer Service
I want to qualify this statement. I travel each week for work and stay at various hotel approximately 75 nights a year. I have had bad rooms, bad meals, poor customer service a number of times. This Holiday Inn has the worst customer service. The shuttle does not run to the airport unless you make a stink (the airport is 2 minutes from the hotel). I actually walked from the airport to the hotel after waiting 25 minutes and seeing the shuttle not move. When I arrived at the hotel and told them I waled, the front counter told me to take a cab next time. Also, there was not a manager on duty all weekend. Problems with room included no upgrades (that were paid for), loud air conditions and overall cleanliness was poor. I would never recommend this hotel

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shopperextrodinaire "Roomy" IHG By BMI
We have stayed in 10 - 20 IHG/Holiday Inn Express hotels in the last two years across the US. This one was the best so far. It is new, clean, had large rooms, a large well-lighted parking lot with wide lanes. The lobby is beautiful. The BMI airport's main terminal is across the street, but the jet departures do not go over the hotel. This means it is quiet, and the grounds and parking lot are clean (no jet exhaust soot), and your car does not get dirty from the overflights.
Minor peeve: The phones in the room do not unplug. Who steals a desk-phone these days? Also, there is no electrical outlet on the night stand for a CPAP. One must pull out the table and unplug a clock radio, or light.
Overall a very nice one-night stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rain1018 Nice clean hotel
Good hotel, nice new and clean.
Close to airport, close to businesses in Bloomington.
The airport shuttle comes in handy (might save you a bit of rental car time too).
The restaurant attached (baxters) is very good for lunch and dinner. Buffalo Wild Wings is right next door as well.

A little far out of the way for my taste however my overall experience at the hotel was a great one! I was very impressed by how new and updated this Holiday Inn was compared to others I've stayed at. I would definitely recommend others staying here. The price is fair and I love that the travel size shampoo is Bath and Body Works. Well done Holiday Inn!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by duckie40 Reservation not correct
We had made a reservation for a king size suite two months ago. Had a confirmation print out for a king bed. When we arrived to our room it had two queen size beds. Not what we reserved. Luckily they did find a king size, we were told it was the last one.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Aboriginal Bad experience
We were given room # and proceeded.. As we arived on the floor a group of men from the housekeeping staff were loitering & conversing. The beds had not been changed with clean sheets as one bed had bloody nose discharge on both the pillow case & sheet. Need I say more?. The staff eventually changed the sheets but not until after we left for the day. I would niot reccommend this location.I didn't think of snapping a photo but there were 3 of us in the room and this review is factual.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by M1957 One of my favorites
This Holiday Inn is one of my favorites. The staff is always friendly and working to make your stay as enjoyable as a work trip can be. The staff is more than willing to answer questions, provide directions or suggestions. Very nice group!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by mkmiller2013 Value paid for advertised services is poor
Value paid for services received was poor.
1) Pool/Hot Tub was out of order
2) No tub in room only shower
3) Price fluctuations are inappropriate especially for this property and being a priority club member. I have stayed on Wrightsville Beach, NC with an Oceanfront room with living room, Jacuzzi, pool, hot tub and property on the beach with all the amenities for a GUARANTEED price that does not fluctuate and LESS than this property.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by jjtroy Very disappointing
When I checked in, I did not receive the type of room requested. When I went to my room, a maintenance man was sitting on the couch with his feet on the coffee table watching TV. The toilet made noise during the night. I waited several times at the front desk for someone to come out of the back room. Very disappointing

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mike444 Good experience overall but skip breakfast
Had another positive experience at this location. I do not, however, like the change in their breakfast. The food wasn't as good and the service was beyond disappointing. No silverware, staff talking loudly on their cell phone, no food out, etc. hope they get that part figured out.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 Disappointed
When my group first arrived we saw several young women behind the front desk complaining about their jobs &/or job opportunities. We were in our hotel rooms no more than 10 minutes and had someone call and complain about our group. I guess no one called to complain about the room full of adults playing their music loud enough for us to hear it down our hallway later that night. I also had to call and complain about the noise level that came from downstairs. I was told by Justin that the party would be over by 12:00. We had to listen to the noise for over 2 hours. I had children in my room trying to sleep and having to wait until midnight, knowing we were going to get 6 hours of sleep or less wasn't my idea of fun. When an adult asked for a blanket he was refused twice and told to look again. So, I went to look and told the young woman behind the counter that we needed the blanket because we were not given the 3rd one in the bag. I had to get extra towels for both rooms and blankets and each time the woman behind the counter and man that was getting them rolled their eyes and had a big attitude. One of my adults also found a pair of black, lacey thong underwear in the couch bed. GROSS The chlorine levels were way too high in the pool. I was having trouble breathing and my kids were washing their eyes out with the water fountain. The young woman at the front desk told me that some kid complained to her and told her to do something about. All said with an attitude and it was a conversation I didn't even bring up. And I was very disappointed to find out we had to buy breakfast. If it was on your website-it sure wasn't visible because I would have kept calling for another hotel. Considering the rates at your place compared to others-which you were higher- I expected a lot more! Won't be back and already complained to my connections on Facebook.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SFMatt Pristine condition, excellent service
I have stayed here on business with State Farm a few times, now. Each time the service has been above average, and the property itself is always in impressive condition. On my latest stay, I was recognized as a Platinum IHG Rewards member and offered a complimentary upgrade to a suite free of charge. I appreciate the top-notch service, there. The breakfast is also great, as well. I certainly recommend staying here when in Bloomington, and indeed I may not even think of staying anywhere else.

I had cereal for breakfast. When the bill came she charged me for the whole buffet. I asked her if there was not a continental price and she looked and said yes and then proceeded to change the bill. Exactly the same thing that happened the last time I was there, however a different person as a waiter. Makes me think that this is a training ploy to over charge.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by erpa2005 Great location and Very Clean
Me and my family of 6 had a great time. The suites could be bigger. BUT for the price, they were great! Show up on time for breakfast because when its time to close there will be no more hot food. Actually, 0945 saturday morning. Slightly disappointed in the "rewards" for Reward members. I stayed two nights and asided from earning points for my stay there was no benefits to being a reward member. When I travel ANYWHERE I look to IHG properties first because I am a rewards member. Lack of rewards my have me choose a different hotel in the future at this location.

After a long work day I checked in after midnight. I was welcomed by name at reception, my key was ready and I was in my room in a matter of minutes! The room was clean and very comfortable. Even hot coffee in the lobby on the way out - very relaxing and stress free. Great location for business in Bloomington and the staff was very friendly.

we visit Bloomington several times a year and always make every attempt to stay at this hotel. The front desk staff has always been great and help us anything we need. Housekeeping associates always said hello and asked how we were doing as we were walking in the hallway this is an experience you do not receive any hotels. were very nice and have to clean. The only problem we had was that are shower surround was completely crashed. overall I would highly recommend Hotel 2ne1 going to Bloomington Normal area

We stayed in the family suite. This room was perfect for the kids. Everyone had plenty of space in the room. The bathroom was a little small but clean. The only negative thing was breakfast was not included, but it was only $3.49 for the kids. The adult breakfast was a bit high but they had a speacial which included free breakfast. Overall a great hotel stay for the price!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by StateFarmContractor Poor Service
I’ve been a guest at your hotel since November 2012 and have never had any issues with the
service up until this week. Upon arrival I noticed that the sheets had not been cleaned in my bedroom.
Due to me having unpacked all of my belongings and it being late at night I had to sleep in
dirty sheets for the first night. Not what you want as a Platinum member of IHG.
On top of this, last night the noise levels on the fourth floor were at extreme levels due to a number
of teenagers on the same floor. Although I notified your staff on 2 occasions, the noise levels
continued until after midnight, definitely not the best way to prepare for a day’s work.
After this week’s experience, I’m on the verge of taking my custom elsewhere for this rest
of my time on the State Farm project.
Not a happy customer.
