This is a 19th century building converted into a modern inn. The room that we stayed in was beautiful, clean, and thoughtful. There is noise from downtown, but they provide earplugs and a sound machine. Also, parking is super tight, so I’d keep that in mind. There is a communal kitchen, which was super nice. I had to stay longer, and the host was very gracious in allowing me extra time to check out. I loved my stay here, and I recommend it to everyone :-)

Thanks for your review!!

I liked the ease of just entering a code to get into hotel and room. Room (Maple) was very spacious and clean. A peeling ceiling in bathroom needs addressed , along with broken glass and trash in parking lot. In spite of that, I would definitely stay here again, Fantastic location on the Square.. walk to shops, dining and bars.

Thanks for giving us a 5/5! You’re awesome! We have 6 spaces for the five rooms but they are tucked away and I’m sorry for that. It’s the only thing available outside of making you have to pay which is not something we are interested in doing. We would also love to get a larger sign but we don’t own the building so we have to work with what we are given. I’m really happy you enjoyed the accommodations and in room amenities. I hope we can host you again in the future!

Cozy hotel, close to shops & dining

I booked The Walnut Street Hotel because it seemed much cozier and more personal than one of the big chain hotels. I wasn’t disappointed. The space is clean and well kept. It is an older building that has been converted to large guest rooms. There is a large common space with kitchen for visiting. I loved that I could walk down the block to grab a drink or a bite to eat. One thing to note is that the hotel is on the main square in Bloomington. There is street noise and you can hear the nightlife. The hotel offers ear plugs, which I found helpful for sleeping. I would stay here again next time I’m in Bloomington.

Thank you Nikki!! I’m so happy you enjoyed your stay! That’s street noise is our number one complaint for sure. We recently added white noise machines to each of the rooms. If you were able to use yours I would love some feedback on how well they work.
