“Cheaper than everything else good option”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2011

This is now an Americas Best Value Inn. All hotels in Bloomington are in the $180 - $250 per night. This hotel was $89.00 per night right next to a Motel 6 which is $99 per person per night. A tip book online and sign up for the rewards program before you book. You can then get the rate with a 20% discount. This hotel is run down and for $89 per night if it was anywhere else it would be less than one star. But for Bloomington if your on a budget and you need to be here this is a good option. the room was fairly clean and looked like it had recently been painted. The bathroom had little to no mold and the tub was clean but the floor was dirty. The sink light was really really dirty. The room was huge but had no other amenities like a fridge or microwave. The hotel does look like its trying to improve and maybe when they are done they will also be in the $180 range but for now i guess $89 is okay.

Room Tip: We were on the 3rd floor and the room had definately been painted

I've tried to book this hotel on 3 separate business trips to Bloomington and have yet to ever reach anyone by telephone to actually reserve a room. I've called multiple times and actually let the phone ring for 10 minutes without anyone picking up. I attempted to call the Country Hearth 1-800 number but that number is disconnected. Guess they don't want my business...

I do apologize that no one answered the phone when you were trying to book a reservation. The hotel was just under new ownership, and the staff was working out all the kinks in the system. We have long since fixed all those problems with the front desk, and would really like it if you would give us another chance. Again we apologize for the inconvenience.

Mildew on the bathroom walls. The ;whole room smelled like it had been flooded but never cleaned. Wreaked of strong air freshener. And cigarette smoke (was a non-smoking room).

But they did let our dog stay, who smelled way better than the room.

I apologize that you stay with us did not go well. At this point in time new ownership has just taken over. The entire building is the process of being remodeled! I hope you give us a chance to fix the problems you had and come see us again very soon!

Sincerely,
Chelsen Arnett
