Spent the night in Bloomington on our way to Indianpolis. Visited with a friend and the IU campus (my husband is a graduate). It was a short and sweet visit, just needed a place to sleep and shower. HIExpress was clean, had comfortable beds and a great shower. The nightly rate was higher here than the rate we were gettnig at the HIExpress in Indinapolis so this HIExpress matched the rate in Indy, nice, thank you.

Had a wonderful stay here. Hotel was in great condition. Nice lobby and breakfast area. The breakfast was good and I always found something to eat. Our room was clean and the beds were comfortable. I was in charge of arranging the booking for our group and Shari, the group sales manager, was so helpful and pleasant to work with. In fact, all the staff I encountered during my stay were nice. The only negative I have is the internet connection. It was horridly slow. Other than that, I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed as we were in town for a sporting event. This is a new hotel with all the best. Great decor, cleanliness, nice big rooms with pull out sofa and a stuffed chair. Micro/Refrig. Great front office staff! Breakfast was just fair and is probably the only place this hotel could improve.The breakfast had daily eggs, biscuits and gravy,bacon or sausage,yogurt, breads and juices but the eggs were microwave scrambled and not hot, no waffles and the only fruit was apples. But that is the only improvement I could recommend. Would definitely do it again for any kind of trip.

Cailin helped us with directions on the phone, and after we arrived, she could not have been more helpful and accommodating. We had a wonderful weekend.

This is my second stay at this location. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful! The room was spacious and clean. The bed was very comfortable with 4 pillows!! Crisp white, warm linens completed the perfect bed. The bathroom was large and very clean!
