This is my third stay here and will always be my first choice in Bloomington. Every staff member encountered was pleasant and offered extra assistance. Linens and bathroom spotless. It's an old building and wear and tear show up here and there but the beds are comfortable and rooms quiet. Parking access alone makes it worth staying here! Plus easy... More

My daughter and I spent one night while visiting IU. While the Biddle is an older property, it's in excellent shape. Our room was as clean as you could ask, we never heard any noise, and the beds were super comfortable. You've got the food service in the IMU right down the hall, or Kirkwood Avenue is just a five...

The Union, largest student union in the country, is just a perfect place to stay....in the heart of campus, the amenities offered are just fantastic...food, bowling, coffee shops, and proximity to the campus and town. Rooms can be difficult to get on big weekends.football and basketball and graduation, but has always been my first choice. Rooms have been updated. Prices... More

Great classic building, right in the heart of campus. Walking distance to Kirkwood Ave and food/beverages. Fantastic setting. Slightly higher priced than the chains on the edge of town but sooooo very worth it.

The Biddle Hotel's location was perfect for discovering all of the goings-on during Welcome Week. Parking was never an issue on the busy campus. The room was updated and extremely comfortable, and the food court was very convenient. The staff was helpful. I will plan my next visit at the Biddle. I recommend The Biddle highly!

Great hotel and excellent price. We have stayed there for six nights. The rooms are very clean and convenient. There is wifi service but is not necessarily reliable for serious business. It is fine for occasional browsing. The hotel is housed in a building where there are many areas for food. There is a free parking lot. Smoking is not... More

I stayed at the Biddle for 3 nights while moving my daughter into college. The accommodations are very nice, but not amazing....but the real reason to stay here is the friendly staff. We were so very pleased by how all of the staff were so very nice. We had a wonderful stay and hope to return whenever we are in... More

MY BAD, yes my bad, for even trying this place again after being previously disappointed on two previous stays. This time after spending two days helping my son move back to I.U., my daughter and I arrived at Biddle at 10:00, hungry and thirsty. We ordered pizza from off-campus bec nothing was open at Biddle and then called the front... More

We just spent 5 nights at the Biddle for my son's wedding, which took place in the Alumni Hall in the Union. It is impossible to find more convenient accommodations. We were on the first floor, and simply walked to the location of the ceremony and reception. The reception area is beautifully crafted in wood, and displays an impressive antique... More

I used to love hanging out in this beautiful building as a student. Now when we come back to visit I really enjoy being in the middle of campus. It's not a five star hotel, but you get Hoosier friendliness and a clean comfortable room. Don't miss the Sugar and Spice shop. The cookies are still delicious after all these... More
