The staff is amazing. The room is not what I expected. Luckily it was large and clean but no refrigerator or microwave. The microwave is located next to the ice and vending machine. The room was outdated for a Holiday Inn but pleased overall since I was only staying one night. We normally are in a room for a week...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 27 September 2016 via mobile

Nice big rooms! The hotel staff was amazing we were the last of the group to check in due to car trouble and it was late,so we ended up with a double room. The next morning they moved us to a king suite and it was awesome! Close to highway, gas,stores and food! Breakfast was standard,but okay! Would definitely recommend!!!!

Hi "Jeseven"! Thank you so much for taking the time to submit a review... I appreciate it! So sorry to hear about the car trouble, but hopefully that is all worked out now. We're glad you enjoyed both of your rooms... those King Suites are huge aren't they!?!? Thanks again for the 5-star review and we hope to see you...

Nice, clean non-smoking room in which we have been subjected to the second hand smoke of someone else. Since I'm allergic to the smoke, I woke up with a stuffed up nose both mornings. I do like the hotels which are completely non-smoking. The Best Western in Lincoln, IL is such a place. Will be better to stay there next...

This Holiday Inn used to be a nice place to stay. It has become rundown and the redesign of some of the rooms is poor. The bathroom was so small I had to stand between the toilet and shower to shut the door. The bed was not comfy with springs poking through as the mattress was very old. The shower...

This hotel was clean, comfortable, and the people went out of their way to make sure we were doing well. Food was pretty good. Fitness Center very nice. Room was small, but that was ok since there were only two of us. We needed another chair in the room; and it was brought to us right away.

I was on the 3rd floor. The curtains did not close. The shears did but not the heavy curtains. They were put up that way. During the day the sun was shining in while trying to sleep, and at night the light from the Holiday Inn sign and a street light were shining in. Not great for sleeping. Also, the...

Stayed here over Christmas visiting friends in the area. Room was great! Flat screen TV, microwave, mini fridge, Keurig coffee machine. Our bathroom was small. I'd have to say that the continental breakfast was awesome! They had Quaker oatmeal cups that you could add walnuts to, cinnamon rolls, a pancake maker, juices, eggs (tasted like fake-boil a bag eggs), sausage,...

The last time we drove to St. Louis, we stayed just outside of Bloomington, and paid about $30 more. It was worth driving a little farther. This hotel was right off I55 in Lincoln, and we really had no complaints, though we were on the highway side, and my husband noticed the traffic noise, as he is very sensitive to...

INDIANAPOLIS
Reviewed 18 October 2016

This hotel was certainly an adequate facility for an overnight stay - clean and comfortable. However, it was far below typical Holiday Inn Express caliber. Very small lobby space with no seating. Business center was a counter across from the check-in. Very small breakfast area.
