Sherry at the front desk greeted us right when we walked in with great service and a warm friendly smile! Very fast check-in and she gave us a top floor room facing away from traffic as... More

Very good stay at Peru HIE. First time we took our dog along. Would be helpful to have a trash can by all doors for our doggy bathroom disposal. Good breakfast. Will stay here again. 15 minute drive to Starved Rock. Nice little mall down the road and lots of good eating places close by.

I didn't spend enough time here to probably properly rate this property. However, the beds were comfy and the room we had was very large and open for 5 people. Huge hot tub! Very close to a lot of restaurants and stores.

This is another nice and clean holiday inn express. They have a nice fitness center with updated equipment. I did not get to try their breakfast due to leaving before it started. Restaurants and shopping around hotel including Walmart. If you are driving a big rig you can park in street or the McDonald's next door has truck parking.

We stayed here with our daughter and her dog so we could hike the state parks. The front desk was friendly and accommodating. The room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was standard fare for an express, but the staff was very nice and friendly.
