This was our first time staying at Showers Inn and we will definitely stay again. The room was spacious and clean with a "kitchen" area complete with refrigerator, microwave, and sink. The bathroom had a wonderful shower/bath with the sink in a separate area so one person can shower and the other shave or apply make-up. The breakfast was substantial;... More

My husband and I had a wonderful two night stay at the Showers Inn. We arrived tired and late into the evening, and was greeted with a warm welcome, ice cold water, and delicious cookies. We were brought around to the second building on the property and I was so happy with our room. The second building on the property... More

Friendly staff. Clean, neat, comfortable. Good wireless. Quiet. Good breakfast. Good location. Nice setting w/ perennial garden and fountain. If it were possible, I would rate Showers Inn as 9/10 or 4.5/5. Since I cannot, I will rate as a solid 4.

I was there during a sunny and hot week of June 2016, and it was a wonderful experience. A ten minute walk to the university, and most of the many restaurants in the city, very convenient place to stay. A wonderful breakfast to start your day. The room was spacious for a couple, and everything worked perfectly: air conditioning, wifi,... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. Room was very clean! Staff was very friendly! The Inn was upscale but not pretentious! Breakfast was absolutely delicious; Brad ecen shared his recipe for the scrumptious baked oatmeal with me! Great to be within walking distance of restaurants and campus. Bed was super comfy! A delightful stay overall. 😊

We stayed at the Showers Inn for the IU Mini University. I was well located just 7 short blocks from the Union, where most of the classes were held. We stayed in the Cool Evening room, which is in the building a bit closer to the IU campus. The room was spacious. It has a small refrigerator and Keurig coffee... More

We just graduated our third child from IU, which adds up to a total of 14 years visiting Bloomington. Why did we only discover this gem NOW!? The Showers Inn is an absolutely beautiful B&B, located within walking distance of almost anything you may have traveled to Bloomington for. We n walked to dinner on the square, a concert at...
