Wanting to try something new, we looked online and found the Scholars Inn. All the photos looked wonderful and it all sounded wonderful. When we arrived and went inside, we were surprised at how slanted the house was! ...even the floors. We asked to change rooms because of this, which the staff were gracious and accommodated us. When we went... More

Staff was very friendly and incredibly helpful. The historic home is charming and each room is unique. The breakfast in the morning is yummy and the Scholars in restaurant is AMAZING! I encourage you to try it if you like B & B style stays.

Scholars B&B is thoroughly quaint and charming. The Inn is a beautifully maintained historical home near both downtown and the university. Each room has its own character and charm. All accommodations were clean and the service was excellent. Beverages and fresh baked scones and cookies greeted our arrival. In the morning fresh coffee was available outside our rooms and a...

I stay at Scholars Inn at least once a month for business. I am constantly overwhelmed by the friendly and accommodating nature of the staff here. I've always felt incredibly welcome and at home. The building is beautiful, old and charming and always very clean. Breakfast is delicious and they always have soda, coffee and juice in the fridge. They... More

The Inn is a beautiful relaxing home. Each room is uniquely decorated. We had a relaxing and comfortable experience. The staff had coffee waiting for us as we woke. Very friendly staff and an extremely clean Inn. The patio area is absolutely lovely. Was hard to believe we're so close to downtown and IU.

The inn is a beautiful historic home, well maintained, clean and comfortable with all the charm of a 125 year old mansion. The rooms are each uniquely furnished, comfortable beds and soothing linens, I especially enjoyed the chocolate and welcome card left in each room! We woke to fresh brewed coffee waiting outside our rooms and had a delicious made... More

Classic style B&B. The inn is very charming, very clean, centrally located to Indiana University and rate includes a delicious made to order breakfast. Rachel, the manager bent over backwards to make our stay special - home baked cookies at the end of the day was just one of the many added touches. Would highly recommend!

I am an IU graduate and remember when my parents would visit I always wanted them to take me to Scholars Inn for a wonderful dinner (which I couldn't afford back then). After graduating I looked forward to returning at an adult and hopefully staying at the B&B someday. I finally came through! The Inn is so wonderfully kept nice,... More

We arrived after 24 hours of travel to be greeted with warmth and enthusiasm. The inn is beautiful nestled amongst tall trees and a lush green vista. Our room featured lovely furnishings and a huge comfortable bed. Our delicious breakfasts were cooked daily by delightful and helpful staff members. Nothing was too much trouble for staff members. Overall the experience... More

The first night of my stay there was very loud music until 10:30 PM coming from the terrace of an adjacent restaurant owned by the inn keeper. When I requested the music be turned down in volume the staff contacted said that was not possible until restaurant closing. The second night of my stay the management had scheduled a dinner...
