DO NOT go to this hotel!!!

While the location is lovely (on a lake) but far from IU Bloomington, and the amenities are just ok, I highly recommend NOT using this hotel because it is by far the worst managed hotel I have ever seen. Check in was awful - the young staff are so poorly trained it was painful, not to mention long and done incorrectly so I had to return to fix their errors. But the worst was that my room was not cleaned! And when I complained, I was told that because I booked through an outside marketer (which the HOTEL made the decision to market through, not me!) I had no recourse in terms of any kind of compensation for the complete lack of basic service. And the key didn't work on the door. And the promised free coffee was completely gone before the end of the time they promised. And it took over 15 minutes for the poorly trained staff to sell me a breakfast bar. It was a truly painful experience. The worst.

Very nice vacation

My wife and I had to go to Bloomington for business and we looked on line and saw the good reviews for this hotel. We decided to give it a try and we are very glad we did. The place has been very nicely updated, or at least that's what we were told. We don't know what it was like before. I can say with confidence anyone who stays here will not be disappointed. The staff, food and rooms are all excellent. We will be back to Bloomington again and when we return we will book here.

Eagle Point Golf club is across the street and is a really nice course. So if you get tired of the water you can play a round.

Indiana Wedding

We had a good time. But the cleanliness was very bad. We rented 2 rooms--one of the rooms had stained sheets (blood or fecal) and, the toilet hadn't been cleaned and dead bed bugs under the mattress. The other room had snot wiped on the wall and live bed bugs. I had never seen a bed bug before until our stay here--I now know what they look like and they bleed like a swatted mosquito when sqished. The manager comped us one night stay but we had been sleeping with these things for 3 days--Now we have to wash/dry clean/heat our clothes and quarrantine our luggage to make sure we don't bring these things into our house. Like I said I didn't know what they were until I squished one the morning we were leaving

Great Hotel!

Stayed at this hotel after visiting some friends from IU and the entire experience was great. The staff was extremely friendly. Also, the hotel was recently renovated so the rooms were great. My friends from IU came and stayed with us at the hotel for the day because of the unbelievable pool. The view from our room was great and we had a balcony as well. Will absolutely stay there again when I visit my friends from Indiana over the summer

Wonderful Renovation!!!!!!!!!

My family and I have stayed at the resort in the past and it was tired but always a beautiful location on the lake. We always were hopeful that the property would get updated. Well.....they updated and the rooms are just fabulous and the new pool is really nice. They now have an exercise room and are just finishing up with the hallways to the lobby. We received free breakfast because the lobby wasn't done. Be sure to ask if you go now for the free breakfast.

Nice option for IU stay

Although the resort is undergoing renovations, the room was comfortable. The bathroom was clean and updated. I hope they update the carpet as it looked old and dirty, but otherwise the bed and room were clean. It was a nice option since hotels closer to IU were all booked. The area was beautiful with rolling hills, woods and the lake. The food was very good and the bar was cute. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful.

Business trip

Staff very friendly, although I stayed two nights and my room wasn't cleaned/bed made/towels refreshed after the first night. I got back too late to bother calling the front desk. It's a bit of a drive from Bloomington, but I wish I had more time to enjoy the lake. It's a beautiful setting.

Unique lakefront experience

FourWinds is right on Lake Monroe in Bloomington and I think it's about the only place you can stay right on the lake. The hotel has a big marina, although I didn't walk around much -- it's January. But it looks cool, especially at night from the balcony of the lakeside room where I stayed. The room and hallways were very clean and the front desk explained remodeled this year. Has has a neat indoor/outdoor heated pool and nice exercise room, and the bar is great with pretty good burgers and pizza. Overall it was a great deal, half the price of hotels downtown but really nice and lots of improvements since last time I visited (about a year ago) I plan to visit again during summer and enjoy the lake!
