“Good Choice close to the casino”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2010

We decided to stay at this Holiday Inn Express due to its location. It is really located by itself and finding the correct road into it is a bit odd as there are no signs on the roadways that we found. However, we could see it plainly. It's a 4-story building that is about 10 years old and has been recently updated and is really nice. We had a king, smoking, executive suite that was really HUGE! There was lots of space in the bedroom/living room area, and the bath counter was really big. The wide screen TV was good, and the wired internet in the room was very quick. The morning breakfast was standard Holiday Inn and this time included scrambled eggs as well as biscuits and gravy. In all, a very nice stay. It's less than a five-minute drive to either the casino or downtown.

My girlfriend and I have stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in East Peoria (it's actually an Express, rather than a regular Holiday Inn as this site indicates) three separate times now and have enjoyed our stay each time. The hotel is conveniently located just off I-74; you can drive to downtown Peoria in a little over 5 minutes, and the riverboat casino is equally close, as are a variety of restaurants. It's a fairly new building with a nice lobby. The guest rooms, though, are especially nice. The king beds (and I would guess all of the beds) have extremely thick, comfortable mattresses that are amazingly comfortable. I'd say this hotel has the best beds I've ever slept in.

There's also a pool and fitness center (no whirlpool, though); we haven't used the fitness center but have enjoyed the indoor pool. The staff is friendly, although we haven't had any interaction with them other than the most basic check-in/check-out stuff. The only tiny complaint I have about this hotel is that we always request a late checkout on Sunday; the last time we stayed there we were told they could give us an extra hour, but not two. Maybe they were busier than they looked, but the hotel seemed to be about 3/4 empty that night; I doubt that the extra hour would've caused a problem for them. I didn't push the issue, and it really wasn't a big deal.

We come to Peoria a couple times a year and unless things change, we'll always stay at this hotel. The price is a little more than we'd like to spend, but the hotel is exponentially nicer than hotels that are only $20-30 a night cheaper, so it's a great value for this area.

  • Liked — AMAZING beds!
  • Disliked — nothing, really...haven't experienced any problems here
