fine, except ice bucket not clean, still had previous tenant's bag/melted ice

Just wish they offered breakfast like most courtyards do.

I found the staff at this hotel to be exceptionally friendly, personable and helpful. I needed a flatter pillow, and got it very quickly. I got a personal written note from the housekeeper each day. I was greeted cheerfully by the desk staff each morning or night. I also appreciate the upgrades to the hotel. My room was clean and pretty and spacious. I liked being able to get on a high quality treadmill.

Clean hotel, great location, good vibe. Friendly staff. Bar in the lobby.

Hotel was quiet and they have been remodeling the rooms since my last stay. The room was nice.

Hotel was fine and in a good location but the bed was too soft and we sank into the middle of it all night.

A/C was very poor. We are Marriott vacation club owners and stay at Marriott's everywhere. My wife woke up to strong marijuana smell in middle of night. The AC was not good. Staff was friendly. I will stay at the Hilton Garden Inn down the street next time.

was there with some friends for a concert and maybe not worth the money but still a good experience overall ... I would stay there again though

I was in town for an Indiana University basketball game and to visit campus. It was great to have another option for a place to stay in downtown Bloomington. I had a great experience with no issues so would recommend it as a great value for your money! The only thing I would change is that I wish they would include a free breakfast.

very friendly and helpful staff. room was very nice and it was nice to relax in the pool and hot tub area.

Very clean, great knowledgable staff, room was larger than expected!! Really have no complaints!

This hotel was clean, well appointed and perfectly situation to the downtown nightlife. The staff was exceedingly friendly, helpful efficient and courteous.

Nice pool nice location breakfast could be better.

Very close to campus - plenty of bars and restaurants around. It was little too expensive and it could be becuase of football game that night.

Just what I asked for - clean room with comfortable beds and decent amenities.

Our daughter lives close to this hotel and so we have stayed here several times.The location is great, close to the walking trail into the centre of Bloomington, the farmers' market and Kirkwood where there are several restaurants. Our granchildren enjoyed the pool. I was surprised though to find that the ground floor outside door was not kept locked after 10pm, and it was also not able to be locked. After reporting this I was glad to see that it was repaired -but not until the following morning I found housekeeping to be somewhat lacking because supplies for the room (coffee , coffee cups, tissues were not replaced the second night we were there. In a previous stay we found that there were pills on the floor in our room when we arrived. It is a shame that small details like this are missed by the housekeeping staff.

This hotel was clean and very well located for our purposes. However, the staff seemed a bit stingy with the number of towels.

The room was very nice and the bed was comfortable. With this type of hotel it would have been nice to have some sort of free breakfast included in the price. Other than that it was a very nice stay and will stay here in the future.

It is a great spot for parents to stay if visiting with their children at the Indiana University. Very close to the campus but not too close. It was kind of pricey but I like the no smoking policy. It has a nice work out room and swimming pool and spa,though the spa was out of order at the time. Could use a vent system in the bathroom and the bath tub faucet was leaking. The beds and pillows were too soft for my taste, but I had brought my own pillow from home,that helped out. The staff was very friendly and courteous.

I took this hotel for its downtown location and was not disappointed. But it was very pricey and not worth the extra money. Also I like a small fridge in the room and most hotels have them but not this one. Also no wifi in the room--an ethernet cable that did not work on my computer.
