Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by HReunion2014 Housekeeping???
My family and I stayed at this hotel for a family reunion. Overall, it was a typical Holiday Inn Express. We had a great time being together with the family, but did have 2 issues with the hotel specifically:
1. I had a room for 2 nights, one of which was a reward night. For whatever reason, housekeeping did not clean our room after the first night. I told the front desk personnel that the room had not been cleaned, and they said it must have been due to the fact that technically I was under a separate reservation for the second night. They were not able to clean the room because the cleaning staff had left for the day. I did not understand that because I was in the same room both nights, and even if they thought I was checking out, they should have cleaned the room. My experience at other Holiday Inn Express hotels has been much better than this.
2. My family had a least a dozen rooms for the reunion. When we asked about using a meeting room as a group to visit, we were told we would have to pay additional for it, but they would give us a discount. Seems to me, that if the meeting rooms were not in use, we could have used one free, based on the fact that we were paying for a large number of rooms.

Staff always friendly. A nice location to wind down after work. Sad, though, since I will not be able to stay there @ the government rate during my October trip; will have to stay in Peoria that month. Fortunately August, September and November are good.

This is a great hotel to stay in when visiting Pekin, The hotel is very clean. The staff is very courteous and friendly. The complementary breakfast was the best I have ever had at a hotel. My family and I would stay here again on our next visit.

Recent spent 12 days in Pekin visiting family and we couldn't have picked a better place to stay. From the first moment at check-in to the last good-bye as we checked out, our stay was pleasant. The rooms were clean; a varied breakfast provided; fruit and coffee in the lobby 24/7; nice swimming pool/jacuzzi; pleasant patio for relaxing outside and very friendly, helpful staff.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SeñoraR Great choice for Pekin, IL
Hotel was clean everywhere: lobby, room, dining area, public restroom on main floor, and even the outside grounds. There was an ice machine on each floor, which is nice if you are on the 3rd floor. I really appreciated the gluten-free breakfast option!

Our stay at the Holiday Inn Express was a very pleasant one - the breakfast on the morning after the stay was not just a continental breakfast but had a little bit of everything to choose from - was great!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by chili1 Cost
The hotel was clean and well maintained; however, this location is way over priced. We have stayed at larger Holiday Inn Express locations for nearly half the cost. The amount they are charging for staying at the Pekin location is way out of porportion for what you get.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Angelai Great continental breakfast, very clean
Great hotel for a great price. The bed/pillows were very comfortable. They didn't clean the room on the second day for some reason. We had no towels and needed to go to the front desk for some. That would be my only criticism. Otherwise, very pleasant, clean hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LydiaG Great hotel
The hotel was comfortable and clean, offered free coffee in the lobby. The breakfast included gluten free options, which I liked. I thought the room was a little pricey compared to other places I've stayed that were equally as nice. Had one small problem, when booking the room I received an email confirmation that we booked the romance package, including champagne and other items. I never requested the romance package and nor did we receive it. When I brought it to the attention of the front desk, they seemed baffled and said they didn't even have champagne in the hotel. They did offer to go out and buy some, which I declined.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Robert_B Not impressed
The room was comfortable, but the hotel's wifi is so slow I tethered my laptop to my cell phone to use the internet, which was much faster.
Also, staff didn't recognize platinum members at check in. Since they were booked full due to a baseball tournament I didn't expect an upgrade, but they seemed to have the attitude that since they were booked full they didn't really need to do much.

The Holiday Inn Express provided everything I needed on my recent week-long business trip. I was able to plug-in to the Internet and grade my online courses with ease. The rooms are so comfortable, clean and modern. This is the best hotel in Pekin in which to stay, especially when it's necessary to have secure access to the Internet.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by traveling grannies no thanks,twice was enough
2nd stay at this property, I try to sample a property more than once to compensate for that one time disaster that may not occur again. this hotel has failed both stays. while clean and convenient for our purpose, it is lacking in too many areas to warrant a return visit. The price was nearly double what I have paid for the same or better facilities while traveling in many areas of the country and at several other 'chains' . cheap furnishings, poor buffet quality.

I was upset when I discovered on arrival that the reservations people had not specified that I needed a special needs room. By the next day, we were able to move to a room that accommodated my needs. The manager, Linda Marie, bent over backwards to make sure I was comfortable.

I like the pillows here, some the hotels, including HI, are starting to provide these "half pillows" that I can't stand. The last time I slept on a "half pillow" I had to see the chiropractor. Seriously.

Great place for a visit with cousins and their grandkids. They loved the pool. Halls were quiet, even with alot of kids there. I forgot my bathroom bag, mainly because the sink area was not I in the bathroom, like usual, not saying that it was bad, just that I am forgetful. Lost the best lotion that I have found, and my special little knife, so what ever staff got, keep it sharp. Breakfast was good, eggs could have been hotter, but trying to keep eggs hot is impossible. But a nice choice. Desk manager in the morning was great, got me to 74 with perfect directions.
If I stay in a hotel in that area again I will stay there. thanks Holiday Inn.

Had a great time, got to visit with my cousin and her grandkids got to swim in the middle of winter - actually the beginning of a great snow storm. Just wish that I hadn't forgotten my bathroom bag - really miss the new lotion that I just got. But I guess that is what I get for not remembering it. The front desk clerk in the morning was a great help in directions. Breakfast hot food could have been hotter especially the eggs. If I need to stay again, I will return. Thank you

Vey much enjoyed the size and comfort of the suite! The bathroom in the suite was great! Only suggestion would be to put up some Towel Bars! There's no place to hang wet towels to dry/ re-use.
