Very friendly staff who did everything possible to make our stay excellent. I was very impressed by "Alexis," who was helpful and friendly to everyone!

We stopped here overnight on our way somewhere. The room was clean (decor a bit outdated). We had a microwave, coffee maker, and mini fridge. The hotel has a pool and a small fitness center. The fitness center had everything you need for a basic workout but was a bit messy and needed some housekeeping. The hotel offers a hot...

We spent one very comfortable, quiet night here while visiting our daughter. The room appeared to be recently and quite tastefully decorated; the king-sized bed was super-comfortable and the black-out curtains insured that the parking lot lights did not bother us. Clean, friendly and the person at the front desk was welcoming and pleasant. We will be back in Bloomington...

We recently took our teen-age kids to Holiday Inn Express. We typically stay there every time we come to Bloomington - great location, friendly and helpful service, hot breakfast and evening wine and food, and a nice pool and hot tub.

We stayed here for four nights and everything was very nice. One of the kitchen staff, Pat Stinson, was very helpful, kind and attentive. She helped us find a lost wrist band. The hotel was also very close to lots of restaurants and several strip malls for shopping. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
