Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by tjpo Be careful booking
I booked this hotel for a family wedding and used the group code. However, when I tried to change reservations I was told that I could not cancel the room. I was also told that others in the party could not change their reservations and take one of the nights I had booked. That was completely wrong information, but by the time we had gathered, it was too late for the changes because they require 24 hours notice. So it cost me $100 . Also, there is a grand piano in the lobby and we needed to rehearse a piece of music and were told that no one is allowed to play it. News flash: pianos are instruments, not decorations. Tune the thing once in a while and be hospitable to guests' needs. Finally, the breakfast was not good and the exact same food was served every day.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 1ChrisW A very nioce place
The hotel is located in the center of what appears to be the shopping district of Normal. It is within minutes of the colleges and surrounded by lots of restaurants.
I thought the bed was too firm...No worries, the wife thought it was perfect. There is also a variety of pillows in the room. Our room had a couch and a desk with a comfortable chair. It made it bearable when our son came to our room to visit.
The star of the breakfast is the pancake machine. However, like most Holiday Inns, the cinnamon rolls and biscuits are dry from sitting 3 inches from the heat lamp. The microwave bacon was not cooked long enough for my taste. But I make a hobby of complaining about the continental breakfast at every hotel I visit.
All in all it was a very "Normal" visit. If prompted to visit Normal again, I would definitely stay here again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Business Guy 27 I expect more from an IHG property
I travel frequently and always use IHG properties for my accomodations. This hotel lacked quality breakfast, had spiders in the room and loud drunk people outside my window. Also I did not get my bonus points for not taking the welcome gift, not the first time this has happened.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Folky 4 Familly reunion
One front desk person scolded us twice for moving a chair in the lobby so that five people could talk and then said we could rent a meeting room if we wanted to talk -- A call to the owner did nothing to make peace -- If you don't want to stay in your room, stay some other place.

The Holiday Inn Express by far are the best hotels we have stayed at. They have been clean, beautiful and have a great breakfast buffet. When we travel and have to stay somewhere that there is no Holiday Inn Express we are not happy. Thank You for the great stay!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Folky 4 Picky, Picky, Picky evening staff !!!
Had a family reunion with multiple discount rooms. For that price we should have been able to sit in the lobby and move a chair or have a beer in a cozy, but NOOOO, don't move that chair and get your drink in a clear glass. After being scolded a couple of times we were ask to rent a business meeting room for only $100.00 instead of the usual $400.00 rate !!! Calling the owner we got no satisfaction , so DO NOT MOVE A CHAIR !!! Calling corporate got no satisfaction and we were told it was up to the owner. The late night and morning staff were much better. but spend your evening or night at some other place !!! P.S./ Sorry about not following your writing guidelines.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PB 49 Great place to stay in Bloomington-Normal!
My family has stayed a this hotel several times, over the years. We are always impressed with the friendliness and attentiveness of the staff. The rooms are always clean and comfortable. The breakfast is great and plentiful. Our children really enjoy the pool. When the rare complaint arises, it has always been resolved with courtesy and to our complete satisfaction.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Traveling3426 An average stay
I stay at this hotel, because it is close to the airport and to all points that I have to travel to. The maid does not clean the room well at all. When I got to my room on my first night I found three empty beer bottles on the side of the sofa in plain view. While staying here there were many children at the hotel who stayed up very late running in the hall and yelling.

All was good except for the front desk day clerk. He needs a a few courses in customer appreciation. Those are the people who
make his paycheck.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Don & Joan Service
The front desk person was extremely friendly and helpful. He made excellent recommendations for dinner. He also put us on the third floor because he had baseball teams on floors one and two. It was quiet and we did not even hear the baseball teams. The breakfast was good.
We have been staying at a competitive chain which is higher priced. We find the HI Express to be a better value.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dbhwyman Softball Tournament
We chose to stay at this hotel as a team for a recent tournament. I made the initial contact with the hotel months earlier to reserve the block of rooms. The sales person was very accomidating in assuring that each member of the team would have rooms with 2 beds. They provided me with a code to pass to other families to assure that they had the proper reservation rate and room. The reservations went flawlessly. Upon arrival the team was warmly greeted by a staff that met all of our needs. They provided us areas where we could meet and dine together. They were accomidating with checkout times that fit with the schedule of the tournament. The stay here was an overall success. I highly recommend this location for future tournaments.

We always use HIE for our trips and this facility is a great example of the reason we do. The staff was very helpful and greeted us as old friends. The room was very clean and comfortable, and I always feel secure at this hotel.

The room was in decent condition. I could not get the phone in bedroom area to work and when I told front desk she just gave me their phone number and said to try from the phone in front area. I switched the phones myself and they seemed to work and I got through to front desk. Never received wake up call and when I brought to attention of front desk she just said the computer shows trying to call room twice and they would let repair person know. The pancake machine did not fully cook pancakes and no one there for 15 minutes to fix. Then she just said oh I might have put too much water in the batter. Not the best experience I have had at a Holiday Inn Express.
