Terrific bed and breakfast adjacent to an also pretty wonderful restaurant of the same name. We loved our room; beds were comfortable (an issue for me), everything was spotlessly clean, great breakfast with a good range of possible dishes. We will be back!

Great price for a wonderful room-stayed in the AFJ Suite- enjoyed a great breakfast on the patio. The staff was great and for a small price we were able to have our child meet us at the Inn for breakfast.

We stayed in Annie's Room which is just off the kitchen (not a good location due to morning noise). Just a basic room with a tiny bath. This is a house in back of the restaurant. Grounds/parking area are not well maintained and the house has a sort of worn appearance. Friendly staff and nice breakfast

My family stayed here for my wedding last weekend, and we also had our reception dinner at the Scholar's Inn Restaurant right next door to the Bed and Breakfast.They went above and beyond for me and my family to make sure they were comfortable and that the dinner was perfect. I strongly recommend both the B&B and Restaurant to anyone...

Came to Bloomington to relax and celebrate our anniversary. Scholars Inn is much better than a hotel. Rachel, our hostess made vegan breakfast to order; found storage for our bikes; and made us welcomed in every way. This is our third stay and we will be back. Don't miss the granola!

My wife and I stayed here June 5th, for an anniversary getaway. The staff was extremely accommodating and received us with well wishes. The room was fresh and well put together. We enjoyed dinner next door, where they had a private candlelit table waiting for us. We would highly recommend it. Rachel, the B+B manager couldn't be nicer or more...

After making last minute changes to my itinerary, I needed a room at the last minute. I called Scholar's Inn to check availability and was told that there was a room available and that I could have it right away even though it was will before check-in time. Rachel was so kind and gracious and went out of her way...

We have stayed here once before while visiting my daughter in college and loved it. At that time we had the back bedroom and it was very quiet. On this trip we stayed in the Charles Austin Beard (CAB) room. The room was nicely furnished and the bed was very comfortable. The Inn is over 100 years old and is...

“I would probably avoid the one downstairs room (Garden Room) as it is right next to the entrance hall. Also not all rooms have ensuite bathrooms.”
