“Bare Essentials”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2007

We needed a fairly inexpensive place to stay when we took our daughter to Indiana University. This hotel fit the bill. It was fairly convenient to the campus, inexpensive, and clean. The continental breakfast was adequate. It is certainly not elaborate or fance, but had the bare essentials.

We stayed at the Quality Inn prior to the busy Memorial Day weekend. During our stay, the staff was friendly and the room was a bargain, considering it was in a college town. We were able to get a pizza delivery from just down the street (a delicious gourmet pizza from a local chain). The indoor pool was a nice surprise too.
When we left the next day, I accidentally left one of my coolers in the parking lot. When I finally realized it, we were too far away to pick it up conveniently for the time being. I called the hotel a few days later, and the hotel staff rep (Ahmeet?) had good news for me -- they recovered our cooler and would hold it for 30 days! I told him when I would be able to come by again and he said he would write a note on the cooler to assure it would be saved. Sure enough, when we stopped by on June 27th, Jason went into the storage room and brought out our cooler(with the note still attached)! Of course, we were delighted. Their staff went above and beyond the call of duty, and we certainly apprecated it. We will be giving them future business when in the area.

A group of 5 adults, 5 teenagers, and 2 children spent 2 nights at this very nice hotel. We had no complaints. The breakfast was very good, the rooms were clean, the pool and sauna were very nice. We were allowed to stay in the sauna after the official closing time as long as were were not too noisy. They even supplied free newspapers every morning. I did not expect that in a small hotel in Bloomington, IN. We were also given a 10% discount at the local steak house. The employees at the counter were nice and very helpful.

All in all, a very good experience. I will stay at this hotel again and recommend it to anyone staying in Bloomington.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2006

We stayed at the Quality Inn, for 2 nights in Feb. - no elevator, at least it was only 1 flight of stairs. Our room was clean, shower hot. We had a frig. and a micowave, that was nice. Bathroom sink with vanity area very small. Beds weren't too bad either. The girl and guy who worked at the front desk were freindly enough. The pool area was kind of strange and old. The pool was a little bit to cool for me (our son liked it though)and the hottub was a little run down. Free breakfast in the morning was nice, pretty basic but good -nice big area with tables and a TV. Our room opened up to a deck with the rock quarry view, there were geese on the lake (better than looking at a parking lot). I think they could use some updating and a lot of painting (especially the hallway).

The "suite" consists of a room plus a fridge & microwave. Nothing else. Don't spend the extra $$. In most ciities I would rate this hotel as very poor, but in Bloomington w/out much else available, it has to do. The better hotels are booked really early. The one nice thing about this hotel is the lake out back and the staff was friendly. The rooms are quite below average.

This is simply a great hotel. Its a little outside of town, but the staff is great, the rooms are clean, the beds are absolutely the most comfortable i have ever slept on.

Made me look forward to come back to my hotel each night.
