please see response above which is the same guests. The pool closing is mandated by IHG and the State of Illinois for the protection of ALL guests ! Again sorry you feel as you do but we must follow safety mandates.

This hotel was GREAT! Very modern, very comfy, room was large, extremely reasonable. Staff was very helpful. Pool, hot tub and fitness room were great

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, pool hot tub fitness ctr
My family and I loved this hotel and would gladly stay again. Staff was very helpful and attentive. Temperature in pool and hot tub was just right. Fitness center was nice...only complaint was no ventilation. Otherwise all equipment was in working order. The complimentary breakfast was fantastic! I'd never seen a pancake machine until our stay here! Lots of variety to choose from: pancakes, yogurt, fresh fruit, toast, cereal, scrambled eggs, hard boiled eggs, different coffees and juices too! I loved the outdoor patio you could eat your breakfast at too. I must say pool hours were great too (8am-11pm). Kids always like staying in longer so these hours were a welcome sight). Perfect hotel, perfect price! Highly recommended!

Great Place to stay

The hotel has a very clean and crisp apprearance from the time you walk in. The front desk was very friendly. The hotel is in a great location..you have a 24 hour Walmart as well as a 24 hour Meijer all within walking distant. The only issue we had was the pool, in my opinion it had way to much chlorine....other than that, it was fine. The pool hours were great. Pool did not close until 11pm...which the kids enjoyed very much. Overall, the hotel was great!

Very Clean

I travel quite frequently and I like to stay at Holiday Inn Expresses because you know what your getting usually. They are pretty "cookie cutter" in most areas. This Holiday Inn Express was definitely different from others I've stayed at. It was VERY clean and well ran. It is not like a basic HI Express. It is beautiful!! I would suggest this one to anyone who wants a nice Hotel experience. The staff was also great....answered many questions....very helpful! Choose this location if your traveling to Bloomington-Normal, you won't be sorry!!!

My Weekend trip

The hotel foyer is very impressive for a Holiday Inn. The staff was friendly. The room was average. The sofa bed was uncomfortable for sleeping. We didn't get fresh towels our second day; I had to request them. One of the considerations in selecting this hotel was that it had an indoor pool and hot tub. The pool area was clean but it was difficult to stay very long because there was so much chlorine you could literally taste it. The room was very hot and humid. The complementary breakfast was done very well. There were many food options.

Great Hotel - for the right price

This hotel is clean and convenient. The ""suite"" was just a sofa, mini-fridge and microwave. The bathroom was poorly lit, but the amenities were nice and it was clean. The coffee was too weak for my taste!

Well worth the money

I was taking a certification test at ISU and needed a place to sleep the night before. It wasn't full of college students, and was VERY well maintained. The staff was wonderful, the complimentary breakfast filling and the pool was spotless. I highly recommend this hotel if you are looking for a good place to stay on a budget!
