I stayed here for an entire month while relocating to Bloomington. A perfectly enjoyable experience in every way. Clean, quiet and very safe. Very accomodating and friendly owner and staff. It's not the Hyatt Regency people, and not supposed to be! It's a cute, rustic motel in Southern Indiana. Move along lady needs to do just that, room service? Ha!... More

Clean, classic-style motel. Affordable base for exploring region. Recently updated. Midway between Bloomington and Nashville. Quiet and comfortable, nothing fancy, no breakfast. Perfect for relaxed traveler. Resident manager very helpful.

When I visit southern Indiana to attend the Bean Blossom Bluegrass Festival I make it a point to lodge at Hickory Shades. The rooms are clean and spacious. A refrigerator, stove and laundry facilities are provided for guests. Costs are quite reasonable. Located approx. 7 miles from Nashville, IN.

This meant we could upgrade to better toilet paper than the institutional grade stuff that disintegrates in you hand after first use. If you have asthma, go somewhere else. Our room #23 seems to...

We stayed here while participating in a wilderness navigation competition and didn't expecting much. We took a chance based on the one review posted. This motel was in a wonderful rural area convenient to Bloomington and Nashville. The cost was half what we would have paid in either place. I met the owner who is in the process of upgrading...

The Hickory Shades has gone through several owners since we started staying there some 20 years ago. Some changes were for the worse - notably the short-lived transformation to big-chain management and sky-high prices several years ago. But now, the place is back to being better-than-ever. Very reasonable prices - cheaper than anywhere in Bloomington or Nashville. Immaculately clean. Friendly... More
