We spent one very comfortable, quiet night here while visiting our daughter. The room appeared to be recently and quite tastefully decorated; the king-sized bed was super-comfortable and the black-out curtains insured that the parking lot lights did not bother us. Clean, friendly and the person at the front desk was welcoming and pleasant. We will be back in Bloomington... More

We stayed at this hotel 7/2/2014 through 7/3/2014 for IU college orientation. The hotel was very accomodating for our late check in. The front desk staff was very helpful, signing us up for IHG honors on the spot. The rooms were very clean, well stocked and there were no issues that we found. Our only knock was the incredibly bright... More

We recently took our teen-age kids to Holiday Inn Express. We typically stay there every time we come to Bloomington - great location, friendly and helpful service, hot breakfast and evening wine and food, and a nice pool and hot tub. But on this trip, I rode the elevator with a maid and found out something wonderful about this hotel... More

We stayed here for four nights and everything was very nice. One of the kitchen staff, Pat Stinson, was very helpful, kind and attentive. She helped us find a lost wrist band. The hotel was also very close to lots of restaurants and several strip malls for shopping. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Great rooms, friendly staff, wonderful breakfast. Manager's reception means a free dinner several nights a week. Pat, one of the breakfast attendants, really made my day each morning. I appreciate the smiling face. Thanks for a great stay!!!

I could write for a week on this hotel. It is centrally located, it is clean, it is friendly, it is comfortable, it is really really unique.
