Old, dark, somewhat dank hotel. Overpriced for football weekend at $157 per night. Seemed clean, but well worn. Within easy walking distance to Memorial Stadium. Bedding below standard, furniture worn and old.

booked a room for Friday, Oct. 14, 2016. Mold in the shower, bedding, bedspread were stained and smelled to high heaven. Carpet was dirty and worn, very outdated room. The TV appeared to be from the 70's. The smell was indescribable. I paid $167.00 for one night. The room looked nothing like the one pictured on the website. This place...

WORST HOTEL IN BLOOMONGTON, INDIANA! Read reviews, I wish, I did. I filed a formal complaint with bookling.com, sadly nothing was done to compensate me for the disgusting and filthy room, I had no choice but to stay in. Top dollar rate for sub-standard accommodations. I should have slept in my car. My accommodations would have been clean and bug...

I stayed here for the family weekend at IU because it was the only room I could get. The room was dirty, the towel rack was broken, there was hair in the shower and stains on the shower curtain. The towels were thin and may have been washed, but were stained. I made sure I wore flip flops to avoid...

If I could give this place zero stars then I would. This place a dumpster fire. I booked a hotel room for my friends coming in for the Michigan State vs. IU game and this was the only place I could get a room. First off, they wanted to charge me $250 a night... which I paid at the time...

The carpet looked like it had never been cleaned, with large grungy spill marks; there was mold/mildew in the shower and grout. There were splatters of stuff of the walls never wiped off. Elevator barely works. This is worse than a 1 rating hotel.

I had to stay here for two days for IU orientation. We forgot to get a hotel and we had to stay here. I knew it was bad when the toilet paper was hanging from the wrong side, but first I will talk about the good things, the sheets smelled clean, they had a mini fridge. That's almost where it...
