Our room smelled of strong disinfectant and my eyes started watering the minute I walked in. I checked for bed bugs but couldn't see any. I also couldn't see any hair dryer or face towels that were thicker than a Kleenex. There were no screens on our 3rd floor room's slider, so a child easily could have tumbled over the...

The worst hotel I have ever been in.. Owner does not care about any part of this terrible place. Broken elevator, NO SECURITY.. DOORS TO OUTSIDE THE BUILDING DO NOT LOCK. No lock bar on the inside rooms. Broken lights, outlets broken filthy towels I could keep going but it is clear the owner understands that people desperate to stay...

The room appears to be clean at first glance, but everywhere you look, something or the other is broken or falling apart. The bathroom is bare with rust marks on the tub, the baseboards are crumbling due to moisture. Breakfast that comes with the room price was mini chocolate donuts and coffee. I couldn't tell how old the donuts were....

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.

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...
