Most importantly, this is a clean and dependable hotel with a great Smallwood location. Likewise, the hotel offers paid parking in an adjacent lot and the breakfast offered is always good quality (with friendly attentive service and the nicest woman in Bloomington making fresh eggs, omelettes and waffles with a great big smile). But serious issues here include rates which are all over the map and often ridiculously jacked up when they can take advantage of their patrons and that leaves a bad taste for Hilton Diamond customers (including myself) who then end up forced to other hotels. Likewise, a room in the front can leave you bleary eyed in the morning with consent emergency vehicles, sirens blaring, passing the hotel. Even rear located rooms can be noisy. Also, the elevators here can be very slow, and on several locations, only one of the two operated, which meant extended waiting. Since the hotel cannot control the outside noise, we cannot blame them for that issue, but the game playing with the rates does hurt, and for that reason, while we come to Bloomington on a fairly regular basis, we often stay elsewhere, even when we can get rooms at the lower rates, because this hotel simply does not work to consistently earn our business.
