Stayed one night at the Bloomington, Illinois Fairfield Inn & Suites. Hotel is near I-55, convenient for travelers. Hotel seemed new. The bed was much more comfortable than I normally experience at a Fairfield Inn. The bedding was of a high quality. Internet was easy to connect to and stable. Breakfast was standard continental breakfast, but the breakfast eating area had a nice bar to sit at. Surprisingly the hotel did not have a market to buy essential items, snacks, beverages and the like. Room had a fridge and microwave. The hotel was a solid choice for a shorter stay.

King suite was a free upgrade from a King. Friendly helpful service with a clean room. Free breakfast was ample and comp newspapers provided. Pool area was clean and hot tub was relaxing. Easy on and off the freeway.

Good business traveler hotel and good value for family/leisure traveler.

Recommended.

Room Tip: Stayed in a. King suite which was a free upgrade from the king room I reserved. After checking in on this slow weekend I asked how much a king suite would add to my bill and was upgraded at no charge.

Stayed here on points and were happy with the room, bathroom and cleanliness. Room located on the 1st Floor and while we didn't have noise from above, we were next to the stairway. Somewhat noisey so avoid if needed.

My complaint with all Fairfields is that their Breakfast has been severely downgraded--nothing hot except waffles. We were there at 8:00a.m. and the breakfast rolls/bread containers were empty. Only very ripe bananas and a couple of apples. Fairfields have been our preferred hotels for many years, but we may be changing.

Front desk staff (both evening and morning) were very helpful.

Room Tip: Away from stairway

Be sure you stay on floor 3 as you will hear footsteps if you are on the floors 1 and 2. This place is well run and the breafast room is bright and well stocked with the usual Fairfield food. The location is some distance from Illinois State University but close to a movie theatre and resturants. It is also easy to find. I like this place better than the Marriott Courtyard on the other side of town because the Courtyard does not offer any breakfast included in their rates, and the parking is harder to get

Room Tip: 3rd floor rooms are the best

This was our second stay in this particular hotel, and like the last time we stayed here a couple of years ago, we were pleased with our stay this time. Our room was very well-maintained. The common areas are also very nice. Everything was clean. We had the Fairfield version of a suite which included two queens in the bedroom, and a living area with a pull-out couch. These areas are separated not by a real door but by a room divider. This does a pretty good job of separating the areas. This room also had two TVs, a fridge, microwave, and coffeemaker. I do wish that rooms which say they have an occupancy of five or six (as this one does) would come with enough towels for that many people, rather than forcing us to ask for more, but that's a problem with most hotels, not just the Fairfield.

The pool area was small (as is typical for Fairfield Inns). When my kids went swimming on a Saturday afternoon, there were just a few clean towels left, but there were quite a few used ones laying on various chairs, which gives the impression that the staff doesn't clean that area all that regularly.

The breakfast was also typical. One thing I do not like was that instead of having individual cereal boxes, this one had the large dispensers with only four options for cereal. Also, one waffle maker is not enough.

This hotel is convenient to I-55. It's right next to a Farm and Fleet, down the road from Wal-mart, and nearby dining options include Culver's, Cracker Barrel, Popeye's, and Steak & Shake.

We were attending a marching band competition at ISU, and that was about a 10 minute drive.

This is a decent place and a good value for the money.
