“Terrific stay at Comfort Inn Bloomington, IN”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

I was planning a visit to my daughter in Bloomington IN and have never been to that area. I wanted to stay close to her home and picked the Comfort Inn. It turned out to be a great choice. I had been driving for 16 hours and was happy to finally get to my hotel at 9:30PM. Amanda at the front desk was wonderful. She was upbeat, friendly, professional and efficient. This hotel is safe, clean and my accommodations were excellent and the mattress was superb. The next morning I met Michael, the GM, who made me feel welcome and treated me as if I were family. He could not have been a greater host. My overall experience there was extremely positive and I will surely stay there again when in the Bloomington, IN area. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to or through Bloomington, IN.

Tracey at the front desk was wonderful! Very friendly and informative. Highly recommend biscuits and gravy for breakfast.
Handy location to IU. Clean room. Good water pressure in shower. I would stay here again.

Came here to visit my brother who attends IU. Overall, I would say the hotel is "average". Rooms appeared to be somewhat recently redecorated but the carpet was dingy and worn, and there were a lot of dust bunnies behind chairs and nightstands. Bathroom shower could use updating as well.

Cleanliness was, meh. Sheets were stained in multiple areas. The fitted sheet on the bed kept popping up, revealing a dirty mattress underneath (covered partially by a 1/4" thick "pillow top"). The mattress zipper at the head portion of the bed was not zipped. Not impressed by the bed.

Front desk clerk was too busy on her cell phone to relay our request for late housekeeping to the housekeeping staff, so our room was not made up until our 3rd day of the stay.

Fitness room is reasonable- an elliptical, treadmill and recumbent bike and a Universal weight machine (which was very nice). No solution to clean the equipment with other than hand sanitizer, which was fine at the time.

Hot breakfast was standard: store-bought pastries, yogurt, waffles, coffee, hot chocolate, juices in a machine, etc.

Fortunately, we got a reasonable rate for a Thursday-Monday (Sunday night rate was the most reasonable and fortunately it wasn't a football weekend).

Location was FANTASTIC. Average hotel overall, which served the purpose for us.

Thank you very much for taking the time to post your comments after your recent stay, as our guest feedback is important to us. It was disappointing to read about the housekeeping issues you experienced, we are working hard to fine tune our inspection process, so this experience will not be repeated.
We were pleased to see that our location perfectly suited your needs, and we hope to see you the next time to come to Bloomington to visit your brother.

My husband and i went to visit our daughter who goes to IU in B-town. We had never stayed at Comfort Inn before, but the Union was booked. My husband reserved a room online, and when he printed the receipt, we saw pets were welcome! We got to take our new dog to meet our daughter! Never could have done that if we stayed at the Union! Taylor was at the front desk when we checked in. She was very friendly and an IU student too. The following morning when we checked out I had a question about reservations for graduation in May. Jackie was not able to answer my question, but she was so kind and friendly. She got Teresa who was able to tell me graduation was and how to get a reservation. The room was nicer than the Union. We had a free breakfast that consisted of high-quality food. (I don't know who did all the cooking, but I would like to say Thank you and great job!) The bed was super comfortable. The internet was easy to log onto. My dog was welcome. I do not see myself staying at the Union anymore. Thank you Comfort Inn!

Room Tip: If you are bringing a pet, ask for a ground floor room. We were lucky to have one right by the door...

I arrived at the Comfort Inn tired and muddy, my company card had declined and it added yet another problem to an already bad day. But Amanda was very understanding and patient as I called my boss to get his card number. She directed me to some nice places to eat and grab a drink and gave me a few drink cards for the bar next door at the Holliday Inn. I returned and she was doing laundry and I thought this was odd sense its usually a housekeepers job. So I cracked a joke about one of her employees slacking off, she laughed and said "At least I have a job". Her positive attitude and help, turned my day around and made it better. Wish more of my stays at hotels were like this. Gave it a three on the other hand, because there were so few channels on the T.V and the Wifi was spotty. Overall good stay though.

First time at a Comfort Inn, have usually stayed at Hampton Inn. But had friends going with us that were concerned about rate. Signed up for Membership with Choice Inns, and got a great rate. Surprise they have a great place in Bloomington In. Rooms were great clean and beds were good. Have a connection to Holiday restaurant and bar through inside hallway.
Overall great place, give them a call

Room Tip: beset is second floor on the North side, open to pool area and no noise

I was recently in Bloomington, IN for a business trip and stayed at the Comfort Inn. The Staff was excellent and super helpful all around. The room was nice the bed was super comfortable and clean but, Amanda, Teresa and Taylor at the front desk stole the show for this visit. These girls were amazing and even took the time to chat with me, giving me meal and shopping options and discussion when I returned. The manager Michael was accommodating and helpful when it came to specialized things I needed for the trip. The gentleman doing housekeeping (Derek and Leroy) were very kind and the room looked very nice. Thank you all for a wonderful visit to your town!
