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.

I've stayed in many Holiday Inn Express', but the one along I 80 in Peru Illinois has to be one of the best !!! Very easy access off the interstate, also quiet and comfortable with a full breakfast at 6am. The staff is very professional and helpful.

I arrived late and left early, but I left with a very good impression of the hotel. The staff was very friendly, the room was clean and comfortable, and the free breakfast offered a very good selection. The hotel is right off of I-80, and is easy to get to.

Visited Starved Rock with family combined with business. Hotel staff were always very friendly. Only minor things I noted in the room like peeling wallpaper along the seams and my maid only cleaned half of our room one night of our stay. She made one bed but not the other, took out the trash can but left the empty cups... More

I have never had an animal to travel with, and I've always had horrible allergies. I spent the greater part of my past life trying to avoid any place where animals have been. I still have the allergies, but I found this place to not only be accommodating to my pet, but also to have lots of rules to protect... More

While driving across Illinois, we stopped in Peru and stayed at the Holiday Inn. It was very nice. The staff were also very friendly. It is always nice to be greeted by someone pleasant after driving all day. The room and bathroom were extremely clean and the beds were outstanding!! Excellent nights sleep. Only issue was breakfast. Typical HI breakfast... More

Sad to say, I was looking forward to loving this place but didn't. First, we were given an outdated room with the smell of dog lingering even though I specifically mentioned my allergy issues. Secondly, the pool was dirty with cloudy water and sand or a gritty substance on the bottom and even a dirty wipe floatin in pool. Not... More
