2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Nice location for a visit to ISU; close but not too close! Either this hotel is new or was recently redone as things looked good and the beds/bedding were awesome for this price range. Breakfast was OK, the pool was clean but could have been a couple clicks warmer. Only real complaint was that the heating/AC unit in our room had a bad, loud rattle that made it hard to sleep without earplugs? Management was apologetic and I would imagine it was a simple maintenance issue that was corrected. The only other quirky, kind of funny thing to be aware of is that the hotel sits next to a company that rents large construction equipment and, around 630am when everybody came and picked up their rented construction equipment, it was pretty deafening! Otherwise, it was a good stay in a clean, modern looking property with really friendly stafff! Would stay again.

This was an over ight stay on my way home to St. Louis with my daughter. I chose this location as it is right off highway 55 and easy to find. The staff was very helpful and accomodated my request. the breakfast was very good and easy check out. I would definately stay there again.

I was in Bloomington for a wedding. The hotel was clean and well staffed and maintained. I asked for directions more then once and the front desk was kind and accommodating. The second night of my stay was restful. The first night the room next to me was hosting was I can only assume was a dance party that kept me up; I would have liked the staff to have been more on top of all of that action, but otherwise I had an enjoyable. I would stay there again if I were in Bloomington/Normal

I appreciate the desk, computer hook up and small sofa in the room. A weary business traveler likes to feel they are at home, and not a hotel room. This felt like home! Actually, better bed than at home! For the price of the room, it was a great value.

Went down for a state tournament and found the facilities and staff to be excellent. Would stay there again without a doubt.

The location is ideal next to a Walmart to stock up for long vacation driving and is surrounded by other hotels so spontaneous reservations seem plausible. Food cost is a little high for food joints for family of four but if we planned it better this would not have been an issue.

Even though the hotel was fairly new, it looked like it had been there 20 years. All the tiles in the bathroom were either broken or falling off the wall. Not to mention that the entire room was infested with ants.

This was a great Hotel in a wonderful setting we loved it.

The staff was extremely friendly and hard working.The included breakfast was good. We were upgraded to an executive suite. The room was very large, though it only had one king size bed instead of two full size beds. The pull out couch was uncomfortable, so with 4 adults sleeping, we would have much rather kept a smaller room with the beds we had chosen when the reservation was made. Also, there were spots of something on one of the blankets in our room!

The hotel is a good one - especially for discount hotels. Clean and a good continental breakfast. They missed our room service one day, but gave us a reasonable discount for the trouble. The rooms are new and comfortable.

good bargain for complete family stay

The location is ideal next to a Walmart to stock up for long vacation driving and is surrounded by other hotels so spontaneous reservations seem plausible. Food cost is a little high for food joints for family of four but if we planned it better this would not have been an issue.
