Guest Reviews

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 108 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nothing fancy Average Holiday Inn Express Same old choices daily for breakfast with many mornings of cold stale coffee. Room is average, nothing that really stands out with the exception of one evening when the hotel was quite empty, a group of walk in partiers had been placed in the room right beside mine. At 2 am they were beyond loud, no response when front desk was called so I had to police the issue my self. The entire floor had 3 people and these had to be placed right next door? November 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable stay Everything went quite well during this stay at your hotel.. One thing I did realize after getting home.. While laying in the bed pulling off my rolling gloves my pinky ring flew off my hand November 21, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Clean and convienient Overall clean and failry comfortable. i would avoid staying near the coke maching because of the vibrations transfered to the room. November 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by meets all our needs meet my needs, never turned down for a rewards room when we have them available November 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Relaxing, comfortable stay I went to Bloomington for leisure, a football game. My stay at the Holiday Inn Express enhanced my overall weekend experience. October 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great service Comfortable beds, housekeeping was great, very personable. We arrived and the toilet in our room was not working properly, we contacted the front desk and they moved us to another room without hesitation. We will definitely select this location again in the future. October 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy check in, clean room, good breakfast We've stayed here before and we will again! The rooms are clean, beds are comfortable, and there's a great breakfast provided. Check in and out were quick and easy. Highly recommend staying here. October 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by My stay at Bloomington My stay was great, however it wasn't long enough for me to enjoy it. The kids (my cats who travel with me) loved the facility. October 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable bed and great service The room was confortable, but the bath tube was not clean. October 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice place to stay Room was clean and the staff was friendly. The hotel was easy to get to and there were a lot of food venues close by to choose from. October 13, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Travel interactions Overall the stay was fairly standard for most hotels. I was a bit disappointed with the interaction that I had with the front desk particularly in the morning. They seemed to be bothered by me dropping off key cards and both were on phone and did not even acknowledge my pressence for about 5 minutes even though I was only one at counter and sounded like one of the calls was personal. October 13, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Be sure to get up early on Sunday a.m. for breakfast The hotel is nice and our stay was fine but it was extremely surprising to find the breakfast closed at 9:30 a.m. on a Sunday morning. Several other guests were also coming down for breakfast and left without having anything to eat. This was never explained at check-in either. October 2, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Wish there was more consistency All pillows were soft, even the ones in the firm pillow cases. Shower rod falling off the wall. Hair on the shower wall. Other than that, the location is good and staff is friendly. September 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome hotel, clean too A very nice hotel, very quiet, very clean and professional staff. September 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome Stay Do Recruiting and always stay here. very clean and relaxing September 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great room! Due to a recent knee replacement, an accessible room was required for ease and comfort-ability. I could not have been more pleased with the room and bathroom - in particular the great shower! I was very comfortable and found it easier to get ready for the day than I would have even at home. September 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Stay The staff was friendly and pleasant, the hotel was clean and quiet. We have stayed here several times, while visiting our daughter at ISU. This hotel is convenient and good value. Julie and Jasmine were very professional. September 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jackets We forgot our jackets and called them to hold them until we come thru the next week. They were kind to hold the jackets for us. September 20, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by AVERAGE HOTEL STAY THE ROOM WAS OK. BATHROOM COULD HAVE BEEN BETTER ATTENDED TO AND MORE ATTENTION TO DETAIL IN THE ROOM (LIGHT BULB MISSING FROM THE LAMP). STAFF WAS NOT APOLOGETIC AS TO THE CONDITION OF THE BATHROOM HOWEVER A ROUTINE ANSWER THAT "THEY WOULD LOOK INTO IT." I WOULD EXPLORE ANOTHER HOTEL OPTION IF I WERE TO VISIT AGAIN. September 19, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by professional and knowlegdeable staff Emily is fabulous. Very professional, and knowledgeable about the surrounding Bloomington area. September 16, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bad washing machinw The washing machine is old and difficult to operate. The hotel staff did the best they could but it still was a bad experience September 4, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good Service The beds were not the best, nor did they appear to have been changed. May have been due to water shortage. Pillows were not comfortable and the air conditioning unit was much too loud. Suggestion for all hotels: Use a deodorizer that has no fragrance. If a person has copd or asthma, this will determine whether or not they can tolerate the room or hotel. Our generation is getting older and has more health issues to deal with, therefore the fresheners used to either mask odors or freshen a room can cause a problem for individuals with the above issues. Use non-scented soaps etc., for they are another source of irritation for the older traveler. September 2, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice property Primarily passing through on a long drive. No problems with the hotel. We had the hot tub suite. The arrangement of the faucet and the shower were a little goofy, but it worked fine and was relaxing after a long drive. September 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great service The staff here is the best that I've experienced in all of my hotel stays. I travel 2 to 3 times a week and this team is great! The hotel is very updated, clean and very well taken care of. The staff went above and beyond more than once for me during my stay. August 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very neat, comfortable and cozy This was the first time that we stayed at a Holiday Inn Express and we were very pleased. We found the entire facility very neat and clean including the lobby at check-in, elevator, our room and the breakfast area in the morning plus the building exterior. The breakfast food had a good variety and was fresh and tasty. We only wish they had smaller, more economical rooms available for their guests. August 23, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 Not Attentive to Room Conditions The overall structure of the hotel aligned with HI Express. The room quality ranks as my worst experience. I stay at HI Express for the quality. Upon a return to Normal/Bloomington, I would be greatly inclined to seek out another hotel. Othwerwise I will continue to pursue HI Express as my default choice. As mentioned in my previous comments, the toilet was cleaned. There were obvious lights burnt out that were never fixed. August 19, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by College town Stayed here to move daughter into ISU the following day. August 16, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice clean motel The facility was clean, the staff friendly and the motel was for the most part quiet. The grounds are clean and well kept. August 14, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by front desk staff When we arrived too early to check in, the desk clerk was very friendly, professional and helpful. (She had black hair pulled up in a headband. I remembered her from previous years. When we checked in later, the desk clerk, a thin young man with dark hair and a un-ironed shirt, was not friendly, or helpful. When I asked for a different room at first, he refused and did not make eye contact with me. When I came back and asked a second time, he agreed to make the change, but was not at all friendly about it. August 13, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Hotel Hotel & Staff Very nice. Very good breakfast choices. August 9, 2014
