This is a great hotel. Wonderful old Bavarian feel to the lobby with large ornate furniture. Staff was very helpful and thorough. The king size bed was very comfortable. The room could use some minor updating. The only downside to this hotel is the smell. We noticed the smell of a chlorine pool the minute we walked into the lobby.... More

We stayed in late July for a family birthday party, as Bloomington is a central location for our group. The hotel has a nice, clean appearance, both inside and out, and there are still a few pieces of art and furniture from when it was owned by Jumer's. I agree with previous reviewers that the lobby smells of chlorine, even... More

This hotel is like a diamond in the rough!!! I find it hard to believe the beauty and gorgeousness of the hotel for the price. It feels like a $150 a night hotel and both times we have stayed there for around $77-under $100 a night. The exterior and the interior is absolutely astounding. I used to work in the... More

The room was extremely clean and had a welcoming appearance. I have been periodically staying there for business purposes over the last 20 years. The front entrance vestibule has always smelled like chlorine. The elevators always smell like hydraulic oil. This stay, the closest elevator to my room and parking was out of order. The left lobby elevator was due... More

We celebrated our 10th anniversary here and returned for our 33rd anniversary to find very little had changed or been updated. It is still a nice, unique place. It's just not up to today's upscale standards any longer. It needs a complete update makeover if it wants to stay as a destination hotel.

A really good value stay. $67 for a nice, clean, quiet room. Friendly service at the desk and free breakfast the next morning help seal the deal. I've stayed twice the last two years and will stay again if in the area. About 5 minutes off I-55 with several fast food type restaurants near and a Tony Roma's attached to... More

I was satisfied with mostly everything about the hotel. I was pleased with the room and the service. I appreciate the ISU family rate as we have a son attending in the fall. The only flaw in the hotel was the breakfast...not enough food for the guests. Other than that I will definitely be back.

The room was very nice, clean and comfortable. The hallways and elevator were hot and stuffy though. The location is great with a lot of restaurants close by. We were there for an ISU event and would definitely stay there again.
