“Convenient location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2014

Best location for IU visit. Rooms are clean and spacious. Several dining options without leaving the building. Service was very good. Room price included AAA discount and was similar to brand name hotels in the area.

The hotel rooms are old fashioned and gives a feel of staying in the Medieval castle where the long history and the limestone of the campus buildings takes you back to the old times.
Here are a few suggestions for improvement:
1. The AC in the room is quite noisy. There is no control to switch on or off the AC in the room. Central control of the AC is fine, but the guests would hope to be able to turn on or off the AC at their needs.
2. The television automatically turns on with loud sound at 1AM every night I stayed. It is scary to be waken by the TV at midnight.
3. The cabinet that holds the TV has two mirrors on the cabinet door if closed. The mirrors are directly opposite to the bed. It is not an appropriate arrangement in the psychological perspective. The guests may wake up at night and see themselves in the mirror and get alerted.
4. The curtains on the window is thin and transparent. Thick curtain to shield the light at night or sunshine during the day would be useful.
5. When the windows are open during the night, it is a bit noisy because of the pedestrians and students who talk and walk by just below the window into the Memorial Union. But if closed, the room is too warm. Again the AC is too noisy for a good sleep if turned on.

I really enjoyed the convenience of waking up and walking to the health fair. The concierge was excellent assisting me with finding registration, parking and a local destination. It was a quaint and cute stay.

Nice place, perfect location, would stay again. Room is adequate, bathroom is retro-ish. The only complaint was the food brought by room service. It was VERY inexpensive, on-time prompt, but it was terrible. I didn't have time or the inclination to tell the management. Overall, it is perfect if you are visiting campus. They have a late 1 pm check out which is also good.

There isn't a better place to stay to be near your child. When we visit our kids part of the fun is to have them stay with us and treat them to good meals. Breakfast was a long walk to one of their cafes'

The room was very clean. I was pleased that the bed linens smelled very fresh, yet did not cause any allergic reactions. The hotel came highly recommended and I was not disappointed. Thank you for a pleasant experience.

Hotel couldn't be in a better spot. Park and walk to most of campus and downtown bloomington. Lacked updates (old tv and small bathroom), and conference center really needs a full service restaurant. No breakfast option but fast food court and coffee. Very clean.
