We checked in at almost 10pm and hadn't specified that we would need a room with a pull-out couch or cot and we were told at 1st none were available but the front desk clerk worked some magic and found a suite with a pull-out! We were so glad. Then we asked about the pool and hot tub as we could tell from the entrance there were some renovations going on. We were told the pool wasn't officially open until tomorrow and it had just been refilled that morning but we were welcome to use it and as long as we were quiet we could stay past closing time. The pool was chilly but nice after the hot tub!! We went to breakfast the next morning, delicious and accommodating, then prepared to check out. We accidentally left a pillow behind but didn't realize it til that night as we were preparing for bed in Michigan. We figured it was lost forever. We just happened to travel back by 4 days later on our way home and called about the pillow and they were holding it in the office!! Stopped by and picked it up after lunch. GREAT customer service all around. Will definitely stay here again if we're in the area!!

Great hotel and great location. Happy every time. We stay here every time we visit our daughter at Illinois State University. Great hotel for a very reasonable price. We would highly recommend to other families visiting their children at Illinois State or Illinois Wesleyan.

Friendly service, clean rooms, great location. Close to restaurants, right off the highway, easy to get to.

Nice overnight stay after the Illinois State Football game.

A very good location for my client visit. Well maintained with exceptionally attentive staff.

We enjoyed the pool and ewhirpool during the bitter cold weekend of our stay. Clean...friendly.....tasty breakfast..great pillows! Our view was the back of the Fleet and Farm? We were on the wrong side of town for good restaurant choices.

My daughters and I enjoyed our stay at the Fairfield Inn & Suites in Bloomington. Hotel room was clean, front desk lady was very nice and informative on dinner suggestions based on our needs. Their continental breakfast area was very clean and their breakfast was better than expected.

The hotels breakfast was the best of all hotels that we stayed in the ISU area.. It was very clean and the staff was helpful when we did not want a room next to the elevator. We will go back to this hotel

For the one night it was perfect and we will stay at this location again.

Room was clean, beds reasonably comfortable. Enjoyed the extra pillows and the complimentary breakfast. Front desk not well staffed. Had to wait to check in because the reservationist was plunging a toilet and waited to check out because she was folding laundry. Really?

Fairly convenient off of the interstate. The hotel was exceptionally clean and comfortable with a very comfortable kingsize bed. The staff were lovely in every respect, outgoing and friendly. The continental breakfast was very good and better than most. The coffee was a cut above the usual. Overall, I wish that every overnight stay on the road was more like this one. There was dining within walking distance which was important as we had a rental moving truck.

The hotel was conveniently located off the interstate. It was comfortable----excellent breakfast. The staff was very friendly.

The hotel was extremely clean. The desk manager was very friendly. Our keys were ready when we arrived. Check out was no hassle. The let our couch in the king size room was uncomfortable.

Picked it because it was quite new and wasn't disappointed. The B-N area includes a wide range of alternatives and we've been in many of them without ever returning to the same one twice. I think we've landed a keeper here. Quite comfortable, very clean, although the beds were so-so.

Although it was a short stay the staff was very friendly and helpful. The property was fresh and clean and conveniently located to everything. Would not hesitate to stay there again. Actually already planning a trip next month and will be staying at this property. It was nice to stay where a room that accommodates 4 is one price and not priced for 2 with extra person charges. Thanks Fairfield Inn Bloomington!

We were in Bloomington for my husband's surgery - during the blizzard of 2011. Hotel management worked with us when we had to cancel our 2nd night because the doctor couldn't make it to the hospital for his surgery. They were very friendly and very knowledgeable about the current weather/road conditions. We would highly recomend this hotel to family and friends.

Stay here every time when visiting or moving my daughter at Illinois State. Wouldn't stay anywhere else.

This blew my expectations away. The staff was friendly and place was VERY clean. I would stay there again!

Stayed overnight after moving our daughter into Illinois State University. Room was nice, clean, and quiet.

room was great, very clean picture perfect impression walking in the room. Never got a chance to use the pool or hot-tub, but it was a nice size for each. Breakfast was an incrediable spread!
