The gentleman who worked the front desk when I checked in was very friendly and helpful. The room had everything I could ask for and was very tidy. The pillows and mattress were comfortable and there was no smoke or mildew smell to the room. My only complaint is the mouse turd on the pillow. When I spoke to another... More

This is in a quiet location on the south side of Bloomington. The closest business is an excavating company, and they are closed by the time the sun goes down. The room was clean and comfortable, and the prices can't be beat. There was a microwave and fridge in the room, but no coffee pot (coffee can be acquired at... More

The location is not terrible but it is also not near the heart of town. It is actually in a residential area south of town. It is near Bloomington Speedway but there were no races during my stay so I cannot speak on the noise that this may cause. I had a room with a king bed. There does not... More

We had decided to drive from Central Florida to Bloomington Indiana to visit family members. We were running late so I called the front desk to let them know. While on the phone the gentleman told us of another route to take to avoid all the construction and heavy traffic. He was so right, when we arrived after checking in... More

this is your old style roadside motor and that has been upgraded in the rooms are very clean. All rooms are now non-smoking so there was no smelly issues here. Very basic accommodations but can't beat the price.

Basic hotel, skimpy pillows, nice shower tile. Great deal about 5 minutes south of Bloomington and about a mile from the speedway. Didn't realize the speedway was so close but was tired enough I didn't care. If silence is a concern, check the race schedule. Nice desk clerk, good price, clean, no frills.

My daughter just graduated IU last weekend. Like many of you, I use to spend hours trolling the websites for suitable lodging during our frequent visits from Chicago. The Union, Grant Street B&B were always in pursuit but never available nor reasonable as the IU Hotel conglomerates have figured out a way to squeeze vacation resort room pricing from us... More

If you are a Marriott or Other chain hotel patron, you will not be happy here. A lot of things are nice about This motel. Clean, secure, several updates, very comfortable beds, CLEAN BEDS, microwave & mini fridge..but, the smell of smoke will ruin your night. Seriously, this is probably the place where every smoker stays bc they'll be charged... More
