“Nice, comfortable place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2008

My girlfriend and I have stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in East Peoria (it's actually an Express, rather than a regular Holiday Inn as this site indicates) three separate times now and have enjoyed our stay each time. The hotel is conveniently located just off I-74; you can drive to downtown Peoria in a little over 5 minutes, and the riverboat casino is equally close, as are a variety of restaurants. It's a fairly new building with a nice lobby. The guest rooms, though, are especially nice. The king beds (and I would guess all of the beds) have extremely thick, comfortable mattresses that are amazingly comfortable. I'd say this hotel has the best beds I've ever slept in.

There's also a pool and fitness center (no whirlpool, though); we haven't used the fitness center but have enjoyed the indoor pool. The staff is friendly, although we haven't had any interaction with them other than the most basic check-in/check-out stuff. The only tiny complaint I have about this hotel is that we always request a late checkout on Sunday; the last time we stayed there we were told they could give us an extra hour, but not two. Maybe they were busier than they looked, but the hotel seemed to be about 3/4 empty that night; I doubt that the extra hour would've caused a problem for them. I didn't push the issue, and it really wasn't a big deal.

We come to Peoria a couple times a year and unless things change, we'll always stay at this hotel. The price is a little more than we'd like to spend, but the hotel is exponentially nicer than hotels that are only $20-30 a night cheaper, so it's a great value for this area.
