Positive Reviews

Great location near the interstate

While some distance from central Bloomington, the fact that the hotel was right by an interstate exit was a major positive to many guests. They found that the hotel was easy to find initially, and that they could quickly be on their way, speeding along the highway to their destinations.

Good value

While guests typically did find reasons to criticize the hotel, after listing their grievances many went on to add that they received an especially competitive room-rate. Based on this, and the great location, many concluded that they had received good value for money.

Good restaurants nearby

Guests specifically mentioned that there were a number of good places to eat nearby. They liked that they didn't need to travel far to eat well.

Negative Reviews

In desperate need of a makeover

This was perhaps the most common complaint. Many guests simply felt that the property was looking very run down, and desperately needed a full renovation to bring it back up to a reasonable standard.

Problems with the plug and play facilities

Though not mentioned often, it was reported that there was an issue with the plug and play facilities built into the TV's. It was mentioned that after hooking up a computer, users could not use the TV to play their Netflix movies or stream Hulu. They were uncertain what the problem was, since doing something like that was almost the definition of plug and play.

Very disappointing breakfast

A simply overwhelming number of guests registered their disappointment with the breakfast offered. Most felt it simply lacked the variety that would enable anyone to construct a decent breakfast. A more specific criticism was that it held nothing at all for diabetics, those on gluten-free diets, and those who were cutting down on carbs.
