I always get an upgrade when I stay here for business. The staff is very kind and there is plenty of food to choose from at the contental breakfast. Convenient stores like Walmart are very close by. WiFi can be a little shotty but it's dependable for the most part.

I love these hotels. The staff were.very nice. Very clean place. Breakfast was good. Free fruit also. My only complaint was that the bed was horribly uncomfortable. Will probably try somewhere else nect visit.

We were in Pekin to visit my nephew and his wife and stayed at the Holiday Inn Express. Our room was immaculate, the beds were super comfortable and the bathroom was even a nice size! The staff greeted us warmly and helped us with so many things! We were even treated to pancakes at 10 p.m. during the month of... More

The rooms were very clean, guest service was outstanding, and I was very impressed with the young man that did breakfast. He made sure the food was well stocked, and when he wasn't working with the food he was cleaning the cabinets, and counters.

The staff here is great. Especially Sam. Our rooms were not ready, and he went above and beyond to get us in our three rooms. He contacted housekeeping to inform them of our late departure. It was an outstanding experience. The breakfast is fresh and tasty. The speedy pancakes are a nice touch vs the usual waffle grill. The rooms... More

This Holiday Inn rips you off if you leave early. I made the reservation in person and they did not tell me about the fee. Once I came back to check in they tell me about the fee. This hotel also does not honor the cancel by 6pm the day of the reservation. They were rude on check in. I... More

The early departure fee is explained at check in and is implemented "ONLY" if we do not receive the 24 hours cancellation notice. You were booked in under a sport team contract in which we hold these rooms for your team for months. We turn away business in the process and then if you cancel do to loss and want... More

The room was quite, clean and comfortable. Breakfast area was roomy and clean but the air conditioner could have been turned down a notch. The breakfast food was OK but nothing to shout about. The reservation facility did get my dates mixed up but the front desk clerk took care of the problem without any difficulty.

A bit expensive for a Holiday Inn Express but this hotel is nice and clean and the Internet is solid. If you're in the Pekin area, this could be a good option. HOWEVER... judging by the form I had to sign at checkin and the voluminous number of kids running up and down the stairs/halls late into the evening, this... More

My husband & I stayed here on our last night before arriving home after being gone 3 months. We had several occasions when we stayed in hotels during that period, but the Pekin Holiday Inn was by far the most expensive of all.

We apologize for the temperature of the pool, I did see this comment in our communication log that they had just "back-washed" the pool that day. We did talk about this in the management meeting to figure out what we can do different. Due to the fact it takes a couple of hours to warm back up. We again are... More
