Beautiful rooms, large and spacious, lovely, well appointed. The breakfast was nice as well. Very friendly staff. But the best part was the beautiful rooms and bathrooms, and I appreciated the quality soaps and products in the bathrooms.

The staff was very good to us, but several things kept this from being a great stay. There is no handicapped parking or access to the rooms. We had a difficult time getting our luggage in and out to the car. Crazy you can't park on the street right in front as it is all permit parking only. There was... More

Great anniversary gift for the parents who have everything. Location was great and although it was summer, a quiet neighborhood. Very laid back and friendly - easy check-in! Great breakfast. And great website - easy to book and pick a room.

This place was almost 'perfect'! Loved the warm atmosphere and the room was excellent. Just wish that the bubble jet tub was working in our room - we enjoyed using the tub, there were no instructions on how to get the bubble jet going.

Nicely appointed accommodations. Beautiful courtyard. Very accommodating host. Perfect place for our 60's sorority reunion. Close to IU campus. We would definetely stay there again. Ample parking. Breakfast was very good though since our stay was three days we would have appreciated some greater variety.

The room, the house and the grounds are beautiful. The service is outstanding, with friendly recommendations and a genuine willingness to help and make your stay enjoyable. My husband and I both truly loved this bed and breakfast. The breakfast was wonderful, and served in a beautiful room. The bed was the most comfortable I ever slept on.

The Showers is a formidable last bastion of the grand old days of Bloomington, holding its own alongside the young exuberant Bloomington of multistory apartment buildings and burgeoning nightlife. Quiet, tastfully simple, with its own private back garden, the B&B almost whispers songs of the 30's. The Showers sports a great little staff, very friendly and accommodating. Lovely clean rooms...

We found we would be in Bloomington again for an overnight and when I started researching hotels in the area I found I could get a room at the Showers Inn for about what I'd pay at nearby chain hotels. We decided we'd give it a try and were very happy we did--the inn is beautifully done, as are the... More
