Very happy with our stay at this hotel. Our first room we were given the heat/ac unit was not working but the staff quickly got us a new room and upgraded us to a suite. Very nice and clean room. Breakfast was exceptional. Would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay here again when in the area.

Right off of Hwy 37 and W. 3rd Street, it is easy to access. Wonderful staff and clean facility. Complimentary beer and wine between 6-8 pm. Breakfast was very nice with a wide variety of food. Good coffee too! We stayed only one night, but had everything we needed. Our room had two queen beds, and was a nice, large... More

I've stayed here a few times over the years and I have never been disappointed. The InterContinental Hotels Group training department should bring their prospective managers to this hotel to see how things should be done right. In the past I've provided laudatory feedback on this hotel at their website, and I have mentioned it again when I have used... More

Visited Bloomington, IN and spent 5 nights at the Holiday Inn Express - Fantastic! Labor Day weekend, college soccer and football, town packed. Room perfect, food great although a little slow in coming, however, the place was packed so we're prepared to overlook that. We'll go back to the same hotel in December. Restaurants just across the road, Cheddars, Golden... More

We stayed here for 3 nights while we moved our son into the dorms at IU. While the hotel is not walking distance to the campus, it takes less than 10 minutes to get there by car.

The first time we went here a few years ago we were not impressed. Truthfully my husband could not remember why. I thought it was because there were a lot of unruly teenagers there and the jacuzzi suite tub was not that large. This time my husband had to go to Bloomington for business so he decided to stay here.... More
