Beware of the double parking charge scheme this hotel seems to be running. The hotel is right next to I U so I expected some loud parties but now on a Sunday and Monday night on the top floor. I also was double charged for parking in the city garage. I never swiped the hotel provided card that would charge... More

Room was clean, quiet, and comfy with nice modern finishes and all the amenities we needed. Free wi-fi worked great! Lobby was large with multiple cozy gathering spots and the complimentary lemon water was a nice touch. The fitness center was awesome with a nice variety of strength and cardio equipment. Hotel is surrounded by dozens of wonderful eateries. The... More

Very friendly staff. Really great location. Within walking distance of Kirkwood shops and restaurants as well as IUs gorgeous campus. The room was warm. The beds were of the Flintstone era...after 2 nights, I need a massage. The most unfortunate issue was the large clump of black hair in the fold of the comforter. Not coming back unless I absolutely... More

I enjoy staying on the square after visiting Oliver Winery. The rooms are clean, equipped, and the "hardwood" tile floor was a nice change. The small Keurig coffee maker was a bonus to start my morning. This location enables the guest to utilize all that the square has to offer!!!

I stayed here the last weekend in June 2014 for my son's orientation. I didn't experience a lot of this hotel. Didn't go to the pool or the bar, didn't stay for breakfast, just checked in around 8:30pm and crashed. The first time I tried to get into my room, the key card didn't work. Desk staff was very apologetic,... More

My family and I always enjoy staying here when we come to Bloomington. The staff is very friendly and accomodating. We are able to walk to many restaurants that we enjoy including The Farm, Malibu Grill, and Grazie. We can walk up and down Kirkwood easily. Our kids enjoy the pool. We also like Coaches for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.... More

My son and I stayed here for his orientation at Indiana University. Clean, family friendly and a great location make this a hotel I would come back to in the future. I would recommend it to anyone traveling to Bloomington for any reason.

We decided on this hotel because of the on-site restaurant, on-site parking and complimentary breakfast. The restaurant was closed for the 4th of July holiday. Makes sense, close up for a big travel holiday! The on-site parking costs $6.00 per day, not free as I was lead to believe. There is no breakfast buffet. There is breakfast available for $11... More

Location was nice for Bloomington, but we didn't get a whole lot for a higher price than some other chain hotels. No complimentary breakfast and had to pay for parking. Pool is very, very small. Attached restaurant, Coaches, was quite good - big portions of bar & grill type meals.

Stayed here for 3 nights while attending a trade industry conference. Had to have room keys and swipe card to public parking garage that adjoins hotel reprogrammed more than once. Elevator was slow and noisy. Food served at conference was adequate. Rooms facing College Avenue are noisier. Overall rating: average and a bit overpriced for the property.
