“Nice hotel”
Reviewed 15 April 2013

We stayed at this hotel on a Friday & Saturday nights. Hotel employees that we encountered were friendly and helpful. The hotel is nicely furnished and very clean. Our beds were comfortable. The only thing about the beds I would change is the down comforter, which we found to be too heavy and since it was sandwiched between sheets it was a bit difficult to remove. The selection of TV channels was good. The wifi worked fine for our laptop and iPod touch. The breakfast that was included had a good variety that included scrambled eggs, sausage patties, biscuits and gravy, bagels, cereals, fresh fruits and more. While the gravy didn't taste just like homemade, it was pretty good. There is a Panera Bread Co. next door and shopping very close (including Walmart right across the street). We would stay there again.

My Daughter and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express over the Easter weekend. It was a wonderful experience. The folks who run it are so friendly and gracious. The breakfast was marvelous, hot and much to choose from. The Inn was so immaculate and clean I felt like I was the first person to ever stay there. Everything was absolutely grand. Even the outside fountain in the front was charming. I would go back there every time I was in the area.

Room Tip: Higher floors are very quiet and peaceful

Had a king executive for one night in april 2013. Room was completely remodled top to bottom. Outside of not having a new room smell, you would think it was just built. No complaints whatsoever, and would return in a heartbeat at a decent rate..

Room Tip: 3rd floor was quiet even on a saturday night..

We pick this hotel every year because of its friendly staff and conveniences. It is close to all the shopping and offers a great breakfast. The facilities: the room, workout room, pool and the breakfast room are all very clean. It was just updated and is a beautiful place. While we were there there was a wedding party staying there and took pictures of the bride on the beautiful staircase. Perfect place for pictures! We look forward to this trip every year.

This was such a great hotel, can't wait to stay again. The staff really treat you like kings/queens. Rooms are very new, modern and have nice big flat screen tv. Breakfast delicious and hot. They front desk always greeted us when we left and came. It was so nice being steps away from meijer, wal-Mart, panera bread and a cvs. Thx for a great stay. The staff knows how to treat their customers.

I stayed for most of a week for a business trip. Rooms were comfortable size with free wireless and a hot breakfast each day. There is onsite parking at no charge. Better yet, you are 5 minutes from a variety of restaurants. There is a Panera Bread right next door which was great when it was snowing one night and I did not want to go far. There is an indoor pool and a fitness center. Walmart is right across the street so it was easy to get drinks and snacks for the week. I had to move out on Friday as they were sold out and ended up at a lesser hotel. This hotel was very comfortable and quiet. I would stay again if I needed to go to Normal Illinois.

My family and I stayed here last month to visit family. It was our first time and now, not our last. We loved it! The staff was very helpful. The kids loved the pool and we ordered pizza and had a little fun pizza party of our own. Great beautiful rooms and breakfast was delicious, hot and always replenished. I would highly recommend staying here!
