We pick this hotel every year because of its friendly staff and conveniences. It is close to all the shopping and offers a great breakfast. The facilities: the room, workout room, pool and the breakfast room are all very clean. It was just updated and is a beautiful place. While we were there there was a wedding party staying there and took pictures of the bride on the beautiful staircase. Perfect place for pictures! We look forward to this trip every year.

This was such a great hotel, can't wait to stay again. The staff really treat you like kings/queens. Rooms are very new, modern and have nice big flat screen tv. Breakfast delicious and hot. They front desk always greeted us when we left and came. It was so nice being steps away from meijer, wal-Mart, panera bread and a cvs. Thx for a great stay. The staff knows how to treat their customers.

I stayed for most of a week for a business trip. Rooms were comfortable size with free wireless and a hot breakfast each day. There is onsite parking at no charge. Better yet, you are 5 minutes from a variety of restaurants. There is a Panera Bread right next door which was great when it was snowing one night and I did not want to go far. There is an indoor pool and a fitness center. Walmart is right across the street so it was easy to get drinks and snacks for the week. I had to move out on Friday as they were sold out and ended up at a lesser hotel. This hotel was very comfortable and quiet. I would stay again if I needed to go to Normal Illinois.

My family and I stayed here last month to visit family. It was our first time and now, not our last. We loved it! The staff was very helpful. The kids loved the pool and we ordered pizza and had a little fun pizza party of our own. Great beautiful rooms and breakfast was delicious, hot and always replenished. I would highly recommend staying here!

we have gone back to the Holiday Inn Express and Suites in Bloomington Normal once again and have had another outstanding experience. the staff just make you feel like you are family and welcome you with open arms. the rooms are still very clean as the beds are very comfy. the management is always on property so if there should be any questions they are available. they make it a point to see you usually around breakfast and check if everything is ok.i really can't say enough great things about this hotel. the pool is wonderful and very clean. great place for family, kids, meeting, gathering, even just a week-end get away which is what we did.

Room Tip: if you like the suites they are great, if not any room they have is very clean and comfy.

My wife and I stayed at your Hotel last week and truly enjoyed or stay for 4 nights on a Business Trip to Bloomington-Normal. We stayed at the Parkway Plaza Drive location next to Panera Bread and Walmart close to lots of things like Restaurants and Malls. We especially liked the Cold Bottle of Water and Snacks at check-in. Bart was the one who checked us in and very helpful for directions. We met the Manager Tony who also gave our children Fruit Snacks ! The Rooms were crisp and clean and very modern decor. Maids were friendly too. Liked the Suite we had with 2 Flat Screens and comfortable Sofa. Breakfast was great too and liked the Pancake Machine made fresh! We will be back again. The Best Holiday Inn Express we have ever been too and I travel for State Farm.

Room Tip: Suites were spacious with 2 Flat Screen Big TV's in 2 separate Rooms in the Suite !

Spotlessly clean and very friendly staff. I was most impressed with the the fresh appearance and cleanliness of the facilities. The public areas were as clean as the rooms. Their breakfast bar in the morning as fresh and delicious, because of it's conveninient location it is perfect for business OR vacation.

Room Tip: Their breakfast in the morning was delicious, don't miss the cinnamon rolls!
