I was put up here after the Marriott overbooked and didn't have my room available. Great alternative. Breakfast was good and average for property. Just a quick overnight. Good sleep with no problems. Nice location.

The staff greeted us as soon as we walked in the door. Very professional and refreshing. The room was clean and very comfortable. We all enjoyed the breakfast the lady working was friendly and kept up on keeping things filled. Beautiful hotel I will recommend to others.

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. There are several restaurants and a Walmart within walking distance. Checking in I found the lobby warm and cozy with a Christmas tree and other decorations. The staff here, as always,...

Great well-lit location right across from Walmart and restaurants. Spacious room and decent breakfast. Kudos to Benjamin for his above-and-beyond customer service - made sure we got discounts we were entitled to, checked on us after we checked in to see if we needed anything, and ran down the key to unlock the breakfast storage to get us a couple...

On our trip to Florida we used Holiday Inn Express four times and found all of them clean, modern and cheery. This one is only a few years old and was no exception. Near shopping and dining. Had dinner at Biaggi's per the manager. Was not disappointed. Would surely return if in Bloomington again.

We only stayed a night, but appreciated the lovely, clean rooms! At the time, the printer for plane tickets was down and I didn't appreciate the unprofessionalism of the man behind the counter, letting us know how a customer did that; however, he did add that someone had been called to come and fix it. My husband didn't mind the...
