This hotel is an excellent place to stay. Clean, breakfast is great, rooms are big and have the best sheets and towels I've ever had in a hotel. Better than mine at home! And the pool is an added bonus.

This property was a pleasant surprise. Our family was visiting colleges in the area and just needed a place for two nights. We love pools and hot tubs, so we chose this one because it was close to ISU and was reasonable. The staff was very friendly and efficient when we arrived, and we got checked in very quickly. We...

Nice place for a weekend visit to ISU. Pool & hot tub for down time. Near places to eat that college kids seem to like & near big box stores to get those important college supplies to keep them going. The staff was very friendly. I'll stay there again on the next visit.

We went for a log weekend and our daughter wanted to see the new family dog. It was perfect. The dog rooms are on the main floor and we were next to the side door to let the dog out. The floors were laminate which was perfect. Plenty of grassy areas and places to walk in the area. $20 pet...

Really nice staff upon arrival. Room was clean and everything worked. Our sleep was not disturbed and there was plenty of parking for a our big truck. There is a WalMart right across the street, and a Meijer around the corner.

We greatly appreciate your review and feedback. The hotel did undergo a complete renovation a couple of years ago, netting us an award for best renovation of the year in 2014. We're glad everything in your room was in working condition and there was ample parking for your vehicle, although, we cannot take credit for the convenience of Walmart and...

Holiday Inn Express Bloomington is top-of-the-line! I travel for a living and Holiday Inn Express has never failed to deliver. This property is conveniently located right off the interstate.
