“Our go-to Peoria hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2012

Hubby and I go to Peoria for shows at the civic center now and again, and this is where we always stay. Our most recent stay, the shower in our room wasn't working. Their maintenance staff doesn't work on Sundays, so there wasn't anyone on site to fix it. So they moved us to a one bedroom suite! It was a lovely surprise for Valentine's day weekend. We look forward to our next stay here.

Nice hotel, typical Holiday Inn Express. Kind of hard to find the hotel, in the middle of a bunch of industrial businesses. Can see the interstate from the hotel, so ask for a room not facing the interstate, towels do need to be replaced due to being rather rough and older.

The Internet in this hotel sucks. Don't bother trying to get any work done. Other than that, the hotel is very nice, clean, and the staff is very friendly. If you don't need to use the internet, then this hotel will be the one you want to stay in.

I've stayed at this hotel several times while in Peoria for business. I enjoy its location, near several large roads which are convenient regardless of which direction I'll be heading for my appointments. The staff is always super helpful, nice and outgoing and they have always accommodated any requests I've had for specific types of rooms etc. The breakfast is always good, and they put your bill under your door for a speedy check out--which I sincerely appreciate.
Probably the only downside to this hotel is the parking situation. The front lot fills up quickly, leaving guests to park in the back for which there is no 'automatic' door like there is in the front, leaving guests having to wrestle with their luggage and key card just to get in/out of the door.

Very nice hotel. The rooms are clean and up to date, comes with a flat screen tv. I checked for bed-bugs and there were none :) Bathrooms were clean and well maintained. Staff was very friendly upon check-in. Prices were great, especially compared to the hotel a few blocks away. Interstate is only a few minutes away, and the riverfront is nearby so location is good. Pool was nice, not to cold, and the pool area was clean. There is a continental breakfast with your normal stuff plus they have an automatic pancake maker, of which tasted great. Would definately stay here again.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2011

This was my first trip to peoria & to USA infact. As our usual hotel Staybridge Suits was full, I was accomodated in Holiday Inn. The rooms were very cozy with big LCD TV. The bed was excellent and very comfortable. The hotel has indoor swimming pool and small gym. Pool was good and used it regularly during my stay. The hotel was also with in walking distance to the place of my work, which was big advantage but one drawback was that its little far from the downtown.

The few things I didn't like was wash basin is right at the entrance to the room and variety at breakfast was not so good, cosidering the tarrif of the hotel.

Apart from these 2 issues my stay was unblemished and woudn't mind staying again at this place.

Room Tip: Try to get rooms at upper floors
