We stayed at the College Inn for 3 nights and enjoyed our stay very much. We arrived pretty late our first night and the owner answered our call right away and helped us find our way inside and get settled in. He asked us what time would like breakfast the next morning and it was prepared right on time. Not only was breakfast on time... but it was delicious as well! Eggs, sausage, toast with butter and jam, fresh strawberries, great coffee, so good! The owners, Jack and his wife, were super friendly and provided us with helpful information about the local community which aided us in our trip. We highly recommend the College Inn Bed and Breakfast for a visit or stay of any length.

Excellent customer service is his number one priority, and Innkeeper Jack ensures your stay is delightful, cozy, comfortable from arrival to departure. There is a personalized greeting at the entrance with your room key, accompanied by delicious snacks at a nearby table. Guests have full access to the well-applianced kitchen -you do provide your own food, but can use the fridge, microwave, coffee pot, sink, and such. We've only stayed in Room 1 on our trips. This first-floor room has a super-comfortable queen bed with attached bath. It's CLEAN, warm, quiet, and perfect for our needs. We've stayed overnight on multiple trips during the week for business, and have the house to ourselves, as the majority of visitors reserve rooms around the weekend activities of their student/s attending Wesleyan Indiana College across the street - it's wonderful! Breakfast is served at JAX Cafe two doors down from the Inn. Hearty, scrumptious helpings are served at a fully-placed table in a delightfully welcoming coffee shop atmosphere. On our first trip, Jack, an occasional trumpeter with Disney, played "When you Wish Upon a Star" as a breakfast serenade! This is the only place we stay when overnighting in Marion, and we can't wait to return!

We started staying here 3 years ago when our son enrolled at Indiana Wesleyan. Jack and his team do a great job. It’s nice to see a group of folks who still take pride in the hospitality business. Always well rested. The breakfast next door at “Jax Cafe” is always great!
