hotel is nice, nice family enviroment.(ie: indoor pool, game area, pool tables & ping pong tables. nice hot tub, but should be for adults only, becase children use it as a kiddie pool! Rooms are nice, quiet and comfortable, no noise from rooms next door, but lots of noise from hallway, from kids running. Restaurant & Bar are staffed with... More

I could not locate a hotel close to Bloomington for freshman family weekend, nor was I willing to spend $$$ for the privilege of staying near campus. I found this hotel and was very happy with it. The price was right, breakfast was provided and I was less than 35 minutes from campus. The ride to and from campus takes... More

Our hotel is conveniently located and is close to Nashville and Bloomington Indiana. I am glad that you enjoyed our hotel and the uniqueness of it with all the old fixtures and antiques. More

We stayed two nights this past weekend while our son attended a soccer tournament. Most of the team stayed at the hotel and we'd reserved as a block of rooms facing the indoor pool and courtyard. The rooms themselves were pretty basic and a bit dated..less than average beds and a very loud heating/cooling system, but the room had a... More

I do highly recommend staying here as a close and fun family get away. This is the most family friendly environment I have been to in a while. The set up if the facility allowed for a great environment for the kids to play. Food was average, but there are nice restaurants around. Would recommend for families, not so much... More

The lobby was so inviting, very nice, but then we got to the room which I would guess was built in the 60's and never upgraded. Outside access to rooms. The only nice thing I can say about this hotel is that the bed and pillows were nice, after that - the door (leading outside) leaked cold air, the bathroom... More

I was so sorry to read that you did not have a good experience here at the Clarion. The hotel was built back in the 1960's and we do still have the exterior rooms. Some guests really enjoy the outside rooms and then there are guests that really despise them as well. I am sorry that there were issues with... More

I stayed here during a business trip. The first morning, Debbie hosted the complimentary breakfast during which I requested a "to go" cup of coffee. The next morning, when I returned to my table after filling my breakfast plate, there was a "to go" cup already waiting for me. It is great to stay at a place where personal attention... More

Got to the hotel to find we were on the 2nd floor without an elevator. My wife has a bad hip and I have a bad knee. Nothing the hotel could do they said even though we arrived early. Will never stay here again. Couldn't get my WIFI to work. Their tech support blamed my laptop having a firewall.

I was sorry to read that you did not have an enjoyable stay with us. The original portion of the hotel was built with only two floors and there is not an elevator to the second floor. The tower portion of the hotel was built many years later and this area does have elevator access. I am uncertain as to... More

Stayed for my son's birthday. Nice pool area, with tables around so you can bring in food and eat by the pool. Was impressed by Richard, a very attentive employee who kept the area clean and even offered to get us plates for our pizza.

I am glad that you had a nice weekend stay here at the hotel to celebrate your son's birthday.
