Thank you for the review. As a full service Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites and not a Holiday Inn Express--we do offer breakfast at a cost. Guests can select the chef prepared buffet or dine off the freshly prepared menu ala carte with a range of prices. Or guests may select the healthy breakfast bag available at the front desk or purchase breakfast items in our sundry shop open 24/7. We also offer room service for breakfast, lunch and dinner. As a full service hotel we also offer complimentary shuttle within a 5 mile radius, an attached full service restaurant serving lunch and dinner with a lounge and of course 5000 square feet of meeting space. All of which are not offered at a Holiday Inn Express. Our brand has not done a great job of educating the consumer on the difference, I apologize for that. I do hope with your return you will take advantage of our packages including breakfast as most of these are basically at 50% off price point for the buffet. Thank you for your business and we will look forward to your return. Respectfully, Michelle McConnell, GM

Cleanest room ever! One of my best hotel stays

We were moving, and therefore traveling, as a family of four with two dogs across the country. We stopped at this hotel on our second night. It was absolutely one of the best stays I've ever had - and I used to travel for my job, so I've stayed in hundreds if not thousands of hotels! I booked the hotel through my phone (first time doing that) and it went smoothly. I told them we had the dogs and not only did they put us in a room near the stairs for easy access for that last late-night walk, they openly welcomed our dogs when we walked into the lobby! In addition to that, our room had hardwood floors, which made everything feel SO much cleaner than other hotels. My son has allergies and asthma and usually wakes up with coughing and breathing problems during the night when traveling - but not at this place!!! We had chosen the option that included breakfast when booking our stay, and that came with two coupons for a tasty breakfast (with real eggs!!). But then we found out kids ate free! It just got better and better. I would 100% recommend this hotel to anyone traveling through Bloomington or staying there for a period of time. I know it will be our top choice if we drive through there again!

Thank you so much and thank you for the details of your stay. I am thrilled to read that your experience was something that exceeded your expectations. But more importantly, knowing your son slept well is simply wonderful to know. Our flooring in our guest rooms has certainly been a huge benefit to not only our guests whom suffer from allergies but has boosted our overall cleanliness scores to the tune of 100% rankings for several months in a row. We are very proud of our hotel and our staff. We do believe we have a team that is eager to serve our guests but also a group of loyal employees that truly have our guests best interest at heart. And our front desk team loves dogs too:) We welcome you back soon and hope your move ended well. Come back to our area and just hang out for a weekend away--there is so much to offer in Bloomington for a nice get away. Thank you again. Michelle Irvin, GM

Nice, updated, modern hotel close to the airport

Pros: It was recently updated; loved the hardwood floors and modern look & feel!
Cons: The water didn't drain the greatest in the shower.
Hotel was modern, staff was friendly and eager to please and overall my stay was great! Loved that it's literally across the street from the airport.

Thank you for the review. I appreciate you notifying us of the slow drain but with this review I am not able to detect which room it is to repair. We do our best to rectify these issues as our housekeepers report them and also as we do our routine preventative maintenance on our guest rooms. I am sorry that this was not caught prior to your arrival. We are so glad to know that you did enjoy the hard wood flooring in the guest rooms and our modern decor. We do welcome you back and certainly appreciate your feedback and business. Respectfully, Michelle Irvin, GM

Outstanding staff

My wife and I stayed at the Holiday Inn-Airport with our two golden retrievers. Not everyone is a dog person; the staff was outstanding and had biscuits waiting for our dogs. The staff should be complemented for their outstanding service. The facility was clean at all times.

We love to hear that your pets and yourself enjoyed the hotel. We know that pets can be just as important to a guest as their own children. Thank you for staying with us and for utilizing our pet friendly guest rooms as well. Respectfully, Michelle Irvin, CHA, CFBE General Manager

Hotel was accomodating

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
We were coming to to BLM for a wedding, planned on checking in between wedding and reception. My dad had been admitted to the hospital in BLM, so our need to get into the room was much sooner. They were totally accommodating. The room was clean and really nicely decorated. We would definitely stay here again.

Free access to a shuttle.

Cons: no continental breakfast
The shuttle service wz awesome! Friendly and helpful staff. Nice pool and restaurant. Other guests from 4H and Prom were too loud and woke me up ALL night. Great city. Very hospitable residents. Staying by the airport does not get any better if u hav a early morning flight.

We still provide awesome shuttle service but our hotel has been renovated and we have made every renovation decision with our guests in mind. Sleep quality is priority---come back and see all the changes and experience it once again. I guarantee we will earn that 5 star rating with your next visit. Michelle Irvin, GM
