Though there is rarely anyone at the reception desk (which I found surprising), a sign informs you they can be summoned if needed. The lobby and breakfast areas are beautiful. The suite was spacious and well furnished with a full kitchen, living area with plenty of seating and large TV with high-def, and the bedroom had two queens, a desk and chair. The bathroom had all the necessities and good soap and shampoos. Everything was immaculate and well cleaned each day. The first day we skipped the full breakfast because of an invite to friends' house. The second morning breakfast was served 6-9am, but at 8:35 there was no bacon left (10 minutes till more) and only one breakfast burrito. Eventually more were forthcoming, but by then we'd had cereal and fruit and moved on. There were no forks or spoons, but a staff member helped located some plastic ones. Would stay here again because of the size of the room and the location of the hotel near a shopping center and a Kroger's on the SW side of Bloomington, which happens to be convenient for us.

Miss that old prison cell? Prison food? Well then, you will love this place.

Our room had metal (that's right) furniture. The "coffee table" could serve no purpose at all.

Like a nice warm bath? This place has only prison like showers.

Miss the cellblock noise? Well, Ind 37 can be heard throughout the hotel

And the food? The worse I've had anywhere. Thank God there is a Cracker Barrel nearby.

Hilton has shot itself in the foot with this location. Oh, I am Hilton Silver and Marriott Gold, so I do have traveling experience. My advice: go elsewhere.

I am very sorry to hear that our hotel did not meet your expectations. I can honestly say that I have never received such negitive feedback regarding our showers, location,furniture or food from other guests so I am quite surprised by our comparison to a prison. Then again, I don't have much experience with what it is like to be in prison. Thank you for your feedback.

loved the 2 bedroom 2 bath suite. stayed there during a weekend family wedding. Beautiful lobby, friendly staff, great continental breakfast. close to lots of activities, shopping and eateries. the kitchen/breakfast area was nice. I wish I was able to take advantage of the evening reception but we checked out on a Monday morning.

This place is wonderful, the bed and pillows made us relax and helped us overcome the jet-lag problem. Staffs were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was nice, even tough the restaurant was small and very limited tables during the peak hours.

It is very important that our guests are able to relax and feel at home here. Since we offer a complimentary full hot buffet breakfast we do tend to get very busy in our dining area on IU football weekends. We find that our guests would much rather eat here at the hotel then battle the crowds at local restaurants. We do offer one of the largest dining areas of all the hotels in the area but unfortunately during peak hours it still fills up. Thank you for your feedback and we will look into ways to provide more seating during busy times.

I had a very nice stay. The staff is very nice, and were helpful. The rooms are very comfortable. The rooms are clean and appear new, one of the nicer suite-type hotels. If you are visiting Indiana University, it is slightly farther away than many of the other hotels, but the extra distance (a few minutes) is more than offset by the nicer quality of this hotel. I would definitely stay here again.

This hotel needs some attention, nice accomodations. Just needs some TLC. Poor breakfast, needs improvements. We have stayed at this hotel numerous times and it is a wonderful hotel, along with being very close to everything in the area.

Great pool, great suites for families, and a nice breakfast. We stayed here on our way to Nashville and liked it so much that we booked again for our way back from Nashville. I liked this hotel very very very very very very very very very very very much!
