Located about 25 minutes from downtown Peoria, with restaurants and shops within walking distance. The parking lot was full, so there was not place to park. The hotel room was small, the pool room was cold, the pool and hot tub were both dirty, with brown foam floating on top of hot tub. Will not be staying here again.

My husband had business in Peoria. Rather than stay in Peoria, we selected this property. We were pleased that we did. It was a short drive into Peoria. The property and rooms were extremely clean and well maintained. We stayed in the King suite. It was quite spacious. Breakfast was the typical for a Holiday Inn Express. However, the coffee was better than usual. There are several places to eat and a Walmart nearby. On Monday evening they held a managers reception with a selection of appetizers and beverages. I would recommend highly recommend this property.

Hard to find anything negative about this place. Everything was clean & updated. Housekeeping was good. Common areas were exceptionally clean. Even the ventilation grates in pool were dust-free. Breakfast was surprisingly good with lots of choices. We had a suite, which had sliding doors to close off the sleeping area from the living room area - very handy when traveling with children. Great stay. I would definitely recommend to anyone coming to the area. Also close to Avanti's Dome.

I travel in Illinois regularly for business. This hotel was a great surprise. It was recently remodeled and very clean. Fitness center was smaller, but had free weights, which is rare for hotels this size.

Generally our stay was clean and comfortable. On a number of occaisions the housekeeping staff failed to make up our room. We found it necessary to call the front desk to specifically request have our room made up, which generally solved this problem.

The pool was completely closed and off-limits prior to our stay. We were not notified of this fact in advance, and would have appreciated some advance notice.

business meeting for about 40 people booked by the company. Clean, spacious room with a small sofa. Staff very friendly. If you plan on charging your devices overnight, leave the wall switch on, and turn lamps off with their switch. Outlets are controlled by the wall switches.

To get to this hotel you have to get off the major highway and take a smaller county highway past rows and rows of cornfields. And since we didn't want to stay in a big city, this hotel was just what we were looking for. The front desk was helpful. Our room was on the first floor so it was nice not having to ride up and down the elevator. I didn't like the fact that the toilet and shower were in a tiny room and there were no towel racks except for one hook on the wall. The sink was just inside the doorway so you had to make sure you grabbed your towels before going into the shower. There are several restaurants in the area including a wonderful Asian restaurant.
