While visiting my family in Bloomington I love staying at this hotel. The staff is the best and exceedingly nice and accommodating. The suites are great for relaxing and entertaining guests. I also love hanging in the lobby while eating a free hot breakfast or swimming in their pool. This hotel is right next to the expressway with plenty of...

I was actually surprised by the modernness and cleanliness of this hotel as we walked in to check in. The rooms are clean and very comfortable. Easy access to restaurants: Golden Corral, Texas Roadhouse, and several others very close by. The only complaint, which is not about the hotel, but there were some very noisy guests, and doors closing at...

This HI express was clean and our king room was spacious. We were particularly impressed with Dee who did an awesome above and beyond job in the breakfast area! Would definitely stay here again! Easily accessible from the highway, lots of restaurants within walking distance.

My daughter and I have greatly enjoyed our stay at the Bloomington Holiday Inn Express.

Each morning we set off for business after fresh coffee and breakfast in the downstairs dining room. We returned to nicely cleaned rooms and comfortable...
