I booked this hotel for my daughter's graduation. We decided to stay there when we visited her in the fall. I was nervous because it was very cheap. But...the place was spotless, the staff very friendly and the breakfast was good!! Wish she wasn't graduating cause I'd love to come back.

The HIE, Bloomington, IN was excellent in nearly all respects, from check-in to check-out. It's obvious that management is in control and focused on providing the best customer experience. Personnel at the front desk and in the dining area were welcoming, friendly, and accommodating. The room was very clean and well-equipped with jacuzzi, micro-fridge, large flat screen with a good...

We had the privilege to stay at this wonderful hotel. The staff was wonderful and the rooms were very clean and modern. The indoor pool and hot-tub were perfect after a long day.

I have stayed in this hotel on two separate occasions. Each time our stay was excellent. The rooms are nicely appointed, although not lavish, the lobby is very nice and the parking is ample. The staff is very helpful. The breakfast is an added plus. Additionally on weeknights they have beer on the house.
