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

Showers Inn is a rather dignified B&B in a college town where lodging options normally consist of mid-tier budget hotels. Beyond that, the location is excellent for anyone who wants to stay within walking distance of the IU campus or downtown Bloomington. Parking was ample and the grounds/gardens were well maintained and inviting. My room had a private bathroom and... More

Our stay was short, but great! We were greeted by a lovely woman and shown to our room. It was a short walk to the restaurant our friends recommended. Our room was very clean and the bedding was out of this world! After a wonderful night's sleep, we enjoyed the beautiful gardens on the way to the main house for... More

Showers Inn was beautiful, quiet, and exceptionally clean! The staff is helpful, attentive, and polite. Parking was easy. The room had a spacious bathroom, comfortable chairs, and a bed that was very soft with silky, comfy sheets. Topping it off was the breakfast buffet (with all kinds of breads, fresh fruit and vegetables, yogurt, and nuts as well as quiche,... More

I travel all over the world, and I have to say that this place is one of the best. I couldn't find one thing wrong with this place. Charming, clean, perfectly perfect. The grounds are breathtaking and I didn't want to leave. I traveled to Bloomington to see IU with my daughter. I am hoping that she choices IU just... More

This is such a great place. We have always stayed at the IU Union Hotel, but they were filled. I stumbled onto Showers B & B online and trulyl we will always stay here on future overnight trips to Bloomington. We stayed in the Composer House - which is so lovely - huge room. Showers is close to everything -... More
