This was not a good value on our recent stay. We have stayed here before and were satisfied, but this weekend had hotel rooms in Bloomington at a premium (if you know this IU home town, you know what I mean) and as a result, the value was just not there this time. Our room had a non-working heating unit, and the TV screen went out the evening we were there. The bathroom hot water faucet was also working poorly and was clearly in need of repair. The staff were friendly, but since the hotel was sold out, there was nothing they could do for us. A disappointing stay this time.

wheelchair assessible?

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, good location
Cons: no inside access to elevators from lobby
i loved this hotel. the sleep number beds were great; my first time. the rooms were so clean, spacious, and bright. my ONLY concern is that i question their claim to being wheelchair assessible. here is the situation from my pov: when we checked-in, we found out the elevators were assessible only by going outside, down a steep slope and into another entrance. i wouldn't even try going up the slope! the 5-6 steps in the lobby prevented inside movement from the lobby to the elevators. in the winter time, this could present a bigger problem than is was during our visit last weekend. i would suggest that the designation of 'wheelchair assessible' with information of the lobby steps clearly noted.

Good value for the money

Pros: Free Internet
Cons: Noisy, sleep number bed
Sleep Number beds were uncomfortable and leaked air through the night. Noisy cleaning staff outside of the room in the morning. Good value for the money, convenient location, staff was very nice.

Very clean and nearly new

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, close to iu stadium
The first thing I said to my kids when we walked in was this hotel smells and lools like it's practiaclly new. It's a very nice hotel, very well kept about five minutes from IU stadium and a few more minutes from the main campus. Hallways, carpets were very clean. The room we stayed in was like new. Our room had one of those sleep comfort beds where you dial in mattress firmness. TV was a little small but I didn't go to Indiana to watch TV. In the morning we went down for breakfast. I thought the prices would be a bit higher than the Dennys a few doors down but nope, they were comparable. Nice service from the wait staff, good breakfast and reasonable prices. Also, unlike a hotel not far from this one, this hotel is non-smoking throughout. I noticed some others allow smoking on certain floors or parts of certain floors but this one is completely smoke free. I will stay here again.

Very Nice

The room was clean. Wireless internet worked great. Location was close enough to the IU campus. Sleep number beds were fantastic. For me, it was just like home. Will definitely stay here again.
