This is one of the nicest and cleanest hotels that I have stayed in. I would recommend it to anybody. Some people have called me a "hotel snob" because I am picky about where I stay. This gets the "thumbs up" from me. They keep it so nice and clean that it feels like it is brand new. The breakfast... More

I usually stay at HIE and this one stands out. They have a nice managers mingle at night with free food and drinks. Plus they refunded me a night since I ended up leaving early even though I prepaid. This hotel is right by the highway and only 5 min drive from downtown Bloomington. Will stay here again when I... More

When I travel, I don't intend to spend all that much time in my hotel room. It should be a relaxing space to come back to at the end of the day where you can get a good night sleep and recharge. That is exactly what I got out of this hotel. The staff was friendly and inviting the second... More

When we first walked into the room there were 5 tiny ants crawling on the desk. We killed them and I looked around too find where they were coming from. Could not find out where they were coming from and it was late and I was too tired to ask to switch to another room. If you are a light... More

We stayed here overnight while visiting our daughter. We had two children with us so wanted to stay somewhere with a pool. The rooms were reasonably priced and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. They had a manager's reception w/ lasagna, bread, salad, wine, and beer from 6-8. We had dinner plans elsewhere but took advantage of the wine.... More

The location is great and the proximity to campus a real plus. Easy access to the highway getting in and pout of town. Visited my niece who was a student at the university. The drive from Indianapolis is easy and very scenic. The breakfast included in the cost of the room is a good bargain as well.
