I really enjoyed my stay in Marion, in part because of the nice accommodations at the College Inn. The bed was amazing! I believe it was called a Denver and I plan to try to locate one! I arrived late, but the left instructions, snacks, and my key for me. Breakfast cooked to order. Lovely!

Had a wonderful time at this Bed & Breakfast, never experienced a B&B before but Jack put us completely at ease. I really loved our stay there. We were in Room 1, just lovely and quaint. I cannot believe how they snuggled all that stuff in that house. I did not visit the upstairs. I did see room 2 on... More

I brought my child to visit IWU and I needed a place close by to relax in-between trips to campus. Campus was across the street, the room and inn were charming, the host welcoming, and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. I highly recommend this inn. I just hope no one reads this so I can always get a room!

We spent 5 nights at this wonderful bed and breakfast. Jack is a gracious host and makes a delicious breakfast! We stayed in room 1; the bed was so comfortable, it was almost a pity to have to get up! Jack's place is an excellent alternative to any chain hotel around.

Extremely comfortable. This place literally is my home away from home as I conduct consulting business in the area. My stays are lengthy. I consistently am here from four to six weeks every few months. Jack is a gracious host. Friendly and a wonderful chef. The decor of this pleasant home is very fashionable and the beds as comfy as...

Such a wonderful visit with Jack! Accommodations were perfect, warming and welcoming. Very clean and yummy snacks too! Breakfast was just like home cooked...delicious! Had a chance to try out a couple of different coffees...both were great! We had a little problem with timing of a college visit and Jack was so wonderful, he welcomed my daughter and fed her...

I thoroughly enjoyed my recent stay at the College Inn. Well appointed rooms are decorated with the personality and charm of its owner. The breakfast and snacks were also above expectations and breakfast conversation enjoyable. As our children attend IWU, this will definitely not be our last stay.

Our entire family spent two nights at The College Inn while attending our son's IWU graduation. As a retired Airline Pilot, I experienced 25 years of staying in some of the finest places in the world, most of which people will never have the opportunity to stay. This quaint inn was among the very finest, most enjoyable stays I have... More
