Considering the price charged and the overall rating of the hotel on this website, I was expecting much better. Location is convenient.

Wallpaper was peeling in a couple of places. Room lighting was extremely dim. Bathroom was old and furniture was very out dated. Felt like the 1980's.

Can't belv. this is a Wyndham property! Based on this, I would be wary of staying at any Wyndham hotel!

Our stay was not very positive. The hotel was completely booked up. I had booked my room about a week and a half in advance so it was nice to have a definite room.

When finding this we went to the front desk again and...

I tend to look at the picture of the rooms when I am renting a hotel. Based on what the beds look like is how I choose my hotel. The picture that is represented does not match what was found. The pillows were very flat and the bed was extrememly hard. They do have nice showers and a good breakfast but next time I will go someplace else.

April 25 checked in to Signature Inn, Bloomington, Normal for attending a funeral.
10 years ago, this hotel was good. If you are visitng this great area, it is best to have a reservation well before the date needed. I normally stay at the HIExpress, but needed a handicap room this time, chose Signature Inn after visiting their website, etc....

The hotel location is very good, but the rooms themselves are rather dated. The bathtub was cracked and there were many spots where the finish was missing. There was a crusted stain on the counter by the bathroom sink. I would overlook these things, however, if the bed and pillows weren't so uncomfortable. The pillows were way too thick and hurt my neck. The bed sloped down towards the center,...

This place should not be called a hotel...it is a motel all the way. My bedspread was stained, as was the carpet, and the bathroom floor clearly hadn't been cleaned in who knows how long. When I took the bedspread off because it was stained there was nothing covering the yellowing box spring. The shower barely turned on and the mattress and pillows were horribly uncomfortable. Besides the fact...

The hotel staff at the front desk were very nice but this hotel has not been updated and the rooms are dirty, stained carpeting, cob webs etc. We went out and purchased our own blankets and pillows to use in the room. We were very tempted to just sleep in the car. Couldn't wait until the sun came up to check out.
