I booked four rooms for multiple nights back in April. Family members came in from around the country for an opera performance. I have been coming to Bloomington for about 6 years, and have stayed in many other hotels (all adequate), but somehow I did not know about the Showers Inn. I now believe this is the very best place... More

What a wonderful place to stay. The craftsman style architecture on the interior is beautiful. The food was wonderful, it was an easy walk to restaurants and bars downtown, and the staff was super friendly.

Wonderful all-around! Showers Inn is in a great location to walk around town and to IU's campus. We stayed in the largest room--the Roosevelt Room. It has a chaise lounge, a dining table, and the full balcony, for just a little more than the cost of the rest of the room options, I am glad that I went with the... More

We stayed on a Saturday evening for my girlfriends birthday. The staff was very nice and the room, Cassatt Room, was unique and added to the experience. The breakfast prepared by the chef was very good. The location was perfect for what we wanted to do, after check in we walked downtown Bloomington and checked out the eateries. We will... More

Never stay in a hotel or motel in Bloomington, Indiana! Showers Inn is charming, while at the same time, comfortable and somewhat luxurious. The sizes of the rooms and bathrooms are much greater than any local hotel and I would recommend booking a room in the annex, which has been completely updated. Breakfast at the Inn itself, and simply walking... More

The Showers Inn is a very special place. Mike, the owner and manager, personally supervises and assists in its day to day operations. He himself, in fact, often attends to any need of the customer, however small. Concerning the accommodations we can confirm that the beds were very comfortable. Following a very restful night, we enjoyed a delicious and abundant... More

Moving in a child to school can be stressful but staying at the Showers Inn alleviates some of the stress. The house which is actually two houses is beautiful. We stayed in the adjacent house and the room was spacious, clean and beautifully done. The only issue is because you are in a home you hear more noises. The breakfast... More

Charming bed and breakfast located in two houses. Nicely furnished and clean. Within walking distance to IU campus and shopping. We stayed two nights. The first night was very quiet but the second night was noisy. We were in the larger house on the first floor and could hear people walking above us most of the night. The outside door... More

I am so glad we chose Showers Inn over a hotel. We stayed in the Roosevelt Room which was huge and beautiful. I've lived in apartments smaller than that room. It was sweltering hot outside during our stay so we, unfortunately, didn't get to make much use of the private balcony. However, the room was cool and clean and comfortable.... More
