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

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. They do a great job, I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone coming to the Bloomington/Normal area. In a great location where you can get to just about... More

Much appreciation for the feedback. We enjoy hosting accommodations for guests that value our staff and services. Our location is superior for those traveling to/from the airport or simply need the east side for shopping/restaurants or corporate travel---as the east side is the premier area to be in the Bloomington Normal market.

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

First time stay here. Very friendly front desk staff. They upgraded me for Platinum level. Baxter's Restaurant was very good. Only minor thing I would change was the shower and tub. I had to stand on edge of tub to reach shower head. It had to be seven ft in the air. Also it appeared they had been working on... 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.

With much much empathy for your recent stay.

Needless to say, this group will not be welcomed back to the hotel. We have never rented this many rooms to... More

I flew into Bloomington following one of the milder snow storms. I didn't call for the shuttle until after I landed, but it arrived quickly. The driver wasn't the most pleasant, but not rude. The rooms were a decent size and comfortable. They need to update their TV guide though; the stations had all changed. My hearing ended earlier than... More
