We just checked out this morning! Was in town for a swimming competition. Opted to stay here instead of with the swim team due to miniture golf. On Friday night we checked in with Kelsie not sure on spelling of his name. Super friendly and professional. Kelsie gave us cards to have free breakfast both mornings. Our room on 7th... More

Stayed two nights. Very helpful and friendly staff. Pool and game room and fitness center were exceptional. Hotel is very outdated and in poor repair. The room we stayed in had no wireless internet signal. The door to our room was very thin and not secure. Gaps all around the door.

Have stayed here twice in the last six weeks. Although the place is a bit older and some of the decor is dated, it's been clean, the beds are comfy and the rooms are of decent size. This hotel has both interior rooms in the tower and outside entry rooms in the east wing. I've only stayed in the tower.... More

It was nice to see that you are a return guest to the hotel. Our hotel is definitely an older hotel, but our staff works very hard to keep it clean and well-maintained. The hotel does still have some exterior rooms that were part of the original build. Weekends around the pool area can become quite hectic and water does... More

My wife and I were only there one night, but we had a very enjoyable evening. They have a great pool area. Plenty of restaurants nearby, plus a nice restaurant on site.

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

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 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
