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

My daughter and I stayed here. We arrived late in the evening and George went out of his way to make us feel welcome. The breakfast that Jan prepared was phenomenal. My husband and I are coming back many times this year since both of our daughters will be attending IU in a few weeks. Looking forward to staying here... More

We have stayed at some other B&B's in Bloomington and the Shower's was our favorite. Great Breakfast. Will definitely be returning. We come to Bloomington frequently. This visit was for our daughters wedding and it was nice to stay someplace separate from the hotel where wedding party and guests were staying. Great location within walking distance to downtown and campus.

My wife and I stayed 2 nights in the Roosevelt Room for our 13th anniversary. The room was spacious and we enjoyed the balcony. The king bed was comfortable. The bathroom needs to be updated! The whole house needs some sound proofing. We could hear conversations from the lobby in our room. Breakfast was okay. We were glad to be... More

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
