There were several small issues that, by themselves, would not have resulted in a negative review from me. However, the totality of issues, as well as the one big issue, and an even larger issue this one big issue suggests, leads me to my recommendation. The Big Issue I booked two rooms in this hotel, each for three nights. I... More

I stayed here four nights for a class. I found the staff incredibly professional and welcoming, with one of the housekeepers remembering my name even after we had spoken briefly the day before. The location is pretty good; it is a short, five minute walk to downtown restaurants and bars. It's around a 10-15 minute walk to the west side... More

Came in for a wedding and really enjoyed my stay. The beds were super comfortable and made it easy to get some rest between the long hours of festivities. The lobby remodel looked great as well. I will definitely be returning to the Courtyard Marriott the next time I stay in Bloomington.

The room was clean and the bed comfy. The college makes it noisier with people coming and going in the night. We had family in the hospital and they don't have any hospital rate. The breakfast was a bit on the skimpy side unless you paid for your breakfast.

Visiting IU, and it was really convenient, but... currently undergoing remodel, bare floors & dust. Paper-thin walls, drunks whooping it up in the halls after last call, and stark, featureless rooms leave much to be desired. Take my word for it, it's worth a few bucks to find a nicer place.

Bob, Thank you for taking the time to review the Courtyard Marriott Bloomington! We appreciate your insight. I am very sorry for the status of the elevator area, we know this is a very heavily trafficked area and it does not look great as of right now. As you stated, we are currently updating the property and occasionally our progress... More

My daughter and I stayed here when we came for a college tour of IU. The location is on a main street about a 10 minute walk to Kirkwood Ave. which is the heart of downtown Bloomington where a slew of restaurants are located. You can walk to the campus (which we did) but it will take about 20 minutes... More

Stayed here many times as my son is now in I.U.s doctorate program. Not much had happened other than wear and tear.... but the new lobby renovation shows promise of improvments to the dated rooms, bedding, mechanicals and finishes. Staff has been great and accommodating: moved us to a new room with a fridge for 84 year old mom's meds....brought... More

I stayed here for the first time in March. I was attending a meeting at the convention. It was a great choice. The staff were friendly and apologetic for the renovations. It didn't bother me. The room was spacious and clean! Breakfast was also great! I would definitely stay here again.

I should caveat this review with the fact that the hotel appeared to be going through renovations when I stayed there in early April 2014. This was my first time traveling to Bloomington so I can't say for sure how it compares to other hotels, but I'm sure you can do better for your money. Woke up early as I... More

Justin, Thank you for your response. You are absolutely correct, it is awful to not be able to take a hot shower. There was some work that got done nearby which left our water unable to recirculate properly resulting in the water issue. This has all been corrected and adjusted!
