If you are visiting your students at Indiana Wesleyan University, this is the place to stay! The Inn is adorable and its proximity to IWU was perfect. The rooms are so comfortable. The breakfast was wonderful. And Jack, the innkeeper, was so friendly. I really enjoyed talking with him. I will pick this inn over any hotel for my future... More

"A Place to Relax" is the motto of this sweet bed and breakfast, and they stay true to these words. The room I stayed in was cozy and comfortable. Jack, the innkeeper was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast in the morning was made fresh, delicious, and filling! The food and service was top notch like at a fine hotel,... More

I've stayed in many hotels in Grant County over the years, and hands down, my experience at the College Inn has been the best. That's because it's a great example of a B and B at its best: the dependability of a hotel, but with the relaxed and cozy atmosphere of a good friend's home. I totally recommend it.

The College Inn was very easy to find and located right across the street from the campus. The innkeeper was extremely friendly and hospitable to all our needs. There were wonderful snacks and drinks around the... More

Our three nights here were the best stay away from home we've ever had. The inn is cozy, warm, and inviting. Jack goes above and beyond to make the stay as comfortable as possible! The food and snacks were delicious. We could not have had a more relaxing visit!

Wonderful place to stay. Well appointed rooms with very comfortable beds. Nice amenities - like a fridge filled with beverages, coffee, table full of baked goods, fluffy robes, flat screen t.v.'s, hair dryers, shampoo and greet innkeeper. Full breakfast in a sunny breakfast room. Room number one has a king sized bed. If you are a late riser, you might... More

Can't wait to go back.Unlike most chain Hotels.. What you see in... More

This place is the best thing in Marion, Indiana. The accommodations were excellent and the housekeeper/owner, Jack, is a great host. Rooms 1 & 2 were unavailable when I booked, so we ended up reserving number 3. We were allowed to pick from the available room when we arrived though. We stuck with number 3, although they were all nice,... More
