I hosted my Mom's retirement party at the Holiday Inn and it was perfect! Everyone had a great time and it was the easiest party I've ever planned. The hotel staff was so great to me and my family. The food from Baxter's tasted awesome. The hotel facility was beautiful. I highly recommend the Holiday Inn for any of your... More

This is my preferred hotel when I'm in Bloomington. It's right across the street from the airport and there are a few good places to eat within walking distance. The hotel is relatively new and is well kept. The rooms are clean and beds are comfortable. I've never had any issues with noise, but I've never stayed here on a... More

Many thanks for allowing us to be your hotel of choice while visiting the Bloomington area. I also appreciate your comment regarding the fact that you have never had noise issues. The hotel was constructed with windows that ensure outside noise (such as airplanes) would not be heard. We do have a strict policy of which we do our best... More

Recently stayed at this hotel and found that the workers were extremely rude. It was a busy weekend and I'm sure they were overwhelmed, but that gives them no excuse to treat paying customers like trash. The front desk workers seem "slow" and the management was conveniently never around. Then when I asked to use their shuttle service there was... More

Thank you for your review. We are very sorry that you feel the hotel was understaffed. We always staff our hotel very well however there are times when the front desk may seem rushed due to a sudden flow of guest requests or arrivals. I am sorry that they seemed rushed and came across unfriendly in anyway. We will remind... More

My spouse and one of our kids went on a college visit to Bloomington and stayed at this HI. We had a 2 Qu + sofa sleeper suite. It was a very clean hotel due to the fact that they opened only recently, so everything was spotless. The location is right by an airport but no one in our party... More

Thank you for your very detailed feedback.

This is a huge motivator for our management team as they all work so hard to maintain this property. We... More

Great location, courteous staff, clean rooms and good food all tied together. This hotel is directly across the street from the airport, you could literally walk there if you wanted to.

Much appreciation for the feedback. We enjoy hosting accommodations for guests that value our staff and services.

This was a nice new property by the airport. One thing to note is this seemed to be a cross between an express and a traditional holiday inn. They had a restaurant so they did not include breakfast with our stay. We did not try the food but the restaurant looked nice.

Thank you for your review. We are a full service Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites. The difference would be that our hotel offers meeting facilities, room service, and an adjoining full service restaurant including a lounge. As a full service Holiday Inn, breakfast is not complimentary unless you reserve a package including breakfast or a room rate in which breakfast... More

Located outside of town, but near attractions it's a good location. I stayed only one night here but as I had a full day of sightseeing, the fact that the bed, shower and towels were excellent, made a big difference. Being a suite, there was a living room with a TV and mini kitchen: sink, fridge, microwave and coffee maker... More

Three party busses pulled un in front of the Holiday Inn at 5:30pm dropping off about 100 college students with cases of beer and bottles of booze. You can guess what the rest of the night was like.
