If you have to be on the sprawling Indiana University campus, you can't get more convenient than the Biddle Hotel in the Union. The rooms are small and rather old, but clean and reasonably comfortable. The price is perhaps a touch high for what you get. However, the staff was pleasant and always helpful. (While wireless internet is free, it amazes me that for a "hotel" on a major university campus they don't have a business center -- if you want to print anything or check a computer, or print anything, you have to use the concierge desk.) It's a walk of several blocks to find any amenities (unless you're into the Burger King and bowling in the student union), but even then it's mostly low-end student ghetto food, bars and shops. Still, the convenience to libraries, museums, archives and other facilities on the campus make this an acceptable place to stay for a few nights.
