“Almost Like Home!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2011

Great hotel!!! Staff was friendly and always kept homemade chocolate chip cookies in the cookie jar on the front desk -- how can you go wrong with chocolate chip cookies!! Breakfast was always hot and fully stocked. What the pool lacked in ambiance, it made up for itself in toasty warm water. With in walking distance of shopping, restaurants and a movie theater.

Thank you all so much for your kind words! The staff and I have worked very hard to get the hotel to where it is today and it is so great to hear it is working. I will be sure to pass these comments along to my staff.

Thanks again!

We were just passing through Bloomington. We were looking for a good nights rest, clean room, & a good safe location. We found all of this in this hotel. We were greeted politely & got good advise for a local Mexican restaurant which was very good. The hotel is very appealing & completely filled our needs. The location was convenient to the interstate.

We travel a lot and have learned that a place like this is the exceptions where you receive fantastic service, a very nice room and a great breakfast all for a very reasonable price.

If you want to feel comfortable and not have to worry about a thing, take a trip to this place!

Traveling with my family we stopped for the night. I travel often for my job and stay at various hotels. I must say the staff at this hotel is one of the best. Hotel has a nice appearance, rooms were clean, and front desk was exceptional. They made us feel right at home. Nice job!

Considering I booked the room one night before, $81 was a decent rate for this property. The room and bathroom seemed clean if a little worn. The bed was comfortable but I didn't like the pillows. The bathroom was adequate but nothing special. We did have a refrigerator in our room which came in handy.

We enjoyed their complimentary breakfast. Juices, coffee, hot cinnamon rolls, bacon, sausage patties and links with biscuits and gravy, cereal, milk, yogurt, bread and bagels, etc.

Although we did not swim, there is an indoor pool and whirlpool which looked inviting.

There were lots of young kids (14-16 years of age) staying here but it didn't bother us.

All told, we would stay here again depending on price.

This place looked like it was left alone too long, on the outside.
The Landscape was nice, but neglected!! Weeds were taller than the bushes!!
Furniture in the room, dusty.
Tub needed some bleach!! ( Who wants to take a bath in someone else's grime?)
To top it off, THE ALARM CLOCK WENT OFF AT 5:00 AM!! and I didn't set it...lol.
The bed was awesomely comfortable, the room was cozy, just dirty..uge.
