We have stayed many times in other Bloomington hotels, as our daughter is a student at IU. But coming on a big game weekend, we found that all our known hotels were sold out. Quite by accident, we stumbled upon the Showers Inn, and what a treat for us! The Inn has been brought into the 21st century, making sure to have all the conveniences of today, but the charm of the original house has been left in all the right places. Our room had windows on 3 of the 4 walls, giving us a beautiful view of Bloomington from various angles. The bed was the most comfortable I have ever slept in. In fact, my husband said that he got very little sleep, because I woke him so many times doing the night to tell him how comfortable I was. The staff was warm and welcoming. The food was excellent. My only complaint was that I couldn't stay longer. Had to hit the road early, and didn't have time to see more of the Inn. Will definitely return, and hopefully for longer next time.
