Met up with college girlfriends this past weekend and the location is great - central for our needs. The loft suites are spacious for 4-5 people and having a full-sized fridge worked out great for beverages, food, ice. The whole place -- and the especially the bathrooms-- was clean and updated, the grounds were kept clean (no trash) and there are grills and decks to hang out on (if the weather permitted). Location great to shopping, ISU/Wesleyan for concerts and plenty of parking if you are having a guest visiting

The only so-sos for the trip were: not enough room in the communal breakfast area to negotiate or sit. The cocktails and snacks (bar mix) were ok -- I would suggest a few types of beers (bud light was the only option) and wine -- no hard liquor. Also, have a few DVD players to check out for kids (or adults that want to watch a movie). A shade over the semi-circle window would be nice, too.

Made reservations for same night while riding in car. Person who helped book us was great. Got loft suite for 3 people and 1 dog. Place large and clean. Only complaint is no window covering over the bed in loft so room sunny at crack of dawn. Breakfast just average. Waffle iron broken. We were only ones eating and instead of asking if we were done or if we wanted more food they just come in and put everything away. Poor customer service from that standpoint.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience! We will address the concerns you shared and do our best to make sure other guests do not leave with the same concerns. We are glad our guest services staff helped you with the last minute booking, and that you (and your pet) were able to enjoy our spacious loft suites. We will be looking into window coverings for the loft area to help make the suites more enjoyable.

We are continuously looking for ways to improve our guest's experience, so we greatly appreciate your feedback about breakfast. We have a new waffle iron and I will be working with our breakfast staff on their customer service. We pride ourselves with having an outstanding team, and we will do our best to make sure each of our guests get to experience the courteous and professional staff that we strive to have. Thank you for choosing Eastland Suites Hotel. We hope to have you as our guest again soon!

I have stayed in 10 hotels in Bloomington, and Eastland Suites is my favorite place to stay. WHY? A "real" heating system, a sliding glass door with a little patio that you can actually use for fresh air, wonderful staff (Nice and efficient), wonderful front desk staff, large closets, shower that has pressure, parking right next to room. Full kitchen, even though I don't cook, I love having real dishes, coffee cups, and silverware, instead of plastic.

The only thing else I would like to have is room service.

I arrived without a reservation and had was tired from driving all day. The front desk staff was exceptional and even assisted me in getting a local restaurant to deliver to my room. The conference center was packed but they also assisted with where I could still park I will stay there again!

I recently stayed at Eastland Suites while the company I work for was performing at the Bloomington Center for the Performing Arts. Not only was the price/room very reasonable but the accommodations were wonderful! Clean and cozy rooms, free hot breakfast in the mornings, free happy hour cocktails every evening, free shuttle service to and from the hotel, constant snow removal on walking paths between buildings, and super friendly hotel staff. The hotel is also very close to the mall, local businesses, and restaurants. Lots to choose from within walking distance!

I would highly recommend this hotel if you're ever in the Bloomington-Normal area.

My very pregnant wife and I were in Bloomington for a wedding this past week-end and stayed at Eastland Suites. While our stay started off a little rocky-(our room initially smelled of cigarette smoke), the staff couldn't have been more accommodating. The following day we were switched to smoke free room and given an upgrade with a personal message from the manager. The staff went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure our out-of-town stay was comfortable. I can't praise the staff enough for their courtesy. I highly recommend this hotel and wouldn't consider any place else the next time we visit.

We had a king suite that was very spacious. Bed was very comfortable. Room had nice size tv. Nice bathroom. The grounds were beautiful and we parked right outside our door. Overall the hotel was pricey but it delivered and exceeded expectations. Will stay here again.
