We were very impressed with the hotel staff, the accommodations, and the cleanliness. Our suite was excellent and it was very quiet so we got a great nights sleep. Also, the fact that they had a bar/restaurant (Coaches) attached to the hotel was great. Good food too. We loved being downtown and within walking distance of shops, restaurants, and the IU campus. We would definitely stay here again.

Thank you for giving us your feedback! We were glad to see you rated our staff friendly and helpful and our rooms clean and comfortable. You are right about Downtown being so walkable especially during those fall evenings. We hope to see you real soon! Hot tip try the Breaded Tenderloin sandwich at the restaurant - the best in town.

My husband and I stayed here with a group of friends for a wedding on IU's campus. Great location, very helpful staff, nice rooms and amenities. Walk to everything to explore all the neat bars, restaurants and shops. After the wedding, they even let us continue our after party in the lobby!

This hotel charged $ 389 before taxes for a single Saturday night when IU played Penn State this season. This was without breakfast and did not include a $ 6 charge for parking.
Of course there was also no service.
This is a complete ripoff, and the owners should be ashamed of themselves for charging such prices.
Indiana University football is not Notre Dame or Ohio State!

Thanks for sharing your comments with us. Our rates do rise during Big Ten Football games, IU Graduation and high demand dates such as Little 500. This is true of all hotels in Bloomington or in any city with a large special event. Our rates are published in advance and agreed to at the time of booking and we try to be as transparent as possible. While IU Football's reputation is not the same as Ohio State yet, we are getting there. Go Hoosiers!

I stayed at the hotel for 2 nights as I was visiting my son in college at IU and I got everything I expected. A perfectly clean room, a comfortable bed, a good view of the square, a very good coffee and tea maker (with real mugs and real tea!), excellent customer service. The hotel is nothing out of the ordinary, it is not particularly fancy but it offers very good services all around. The fitness room and the pool were well maintained, the hotel was clean and friendly. It was so easy to walk from the hotel to the center of the campus as well as to the fun coffee shops and the stores that it made the stay even more pleasurable. I highly recommend the hotel!

This hotel is one of the best places to stay in Bloomington. The location can't be beat, right in town, walking distance to the better restaurants, and close enough to the IU campus. There is a parking garage on site and an easy place to pull up in front to unload baggage when checking in. The hotel itself is pretty typical of a mid-tier chain - clean, reasonably comfortable, adequate services - but there's nothing luxurious or special about the place. That said, in a town comprised mostly of this sort of hotel, this one is the best of the lot (but for a few small B&B's). The attached sports bar is convenient, the room is clean, large enough and has most of the amenities one requires. Wifi is included, breakfast was not, but there are many places nearby to walk to for great food options.

Thank you for taking time to review our hotel! We are glad you found our team to be friendly and helpful and the rooms clean and comfortable. The downtown area has become very vibrant with the amount of shops and restaurants. Many IU Grauates are suprised at the change if they've not been back in a while. Thank you for staying with us! We hope to see you again very soon.

This hotel is located right where you want to be! A quick walk to Kirkwood and Sample Gates. It is also clean. However, watch out for its prices. Sometimes they are totally outrageous!!! Also, there is a long wait time for the elevator. Parking is also an additional fee.

We appreciate you sharing your experience with us! It was good to see you found our staff friendly, the facilities clean, and the location exactly what you wanted. We continue to try and improve our offerings. For example we did just upgrade all our in room coffee makers to the Keurig K-Cup brewers.
Our rates do very based on demand and large events such as Big Ten Football games in the Fall. This dramtic influx of demand can cause a substaintial rise in room rates over our normal weekday rates for certain dates. In order to be as fair and open as possible our rates are published well in advance and are the same on all websites and through our reservation lines. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you'll come see us again very soon!

Thanks for staying with us! We're pleased to hear you found our staff friendly and helpful and the location was just what you wanted. Being located right in the heart of downtown does allow us to recommend many unique restaurants and shops for just about anyone's taste. The B-Line trail is relatively new and they've just completed several upgrades to it that make it a great walkable venue both during the daytime and in the evening. Bloomington seems to always be changing and enhancing it's downtown image with something. Come see us again soon!
