My first stay here was good. This time, not so much. I saw a review that mentioned bedbugs but that the management had installed mattress covers to remedy the situation. I decided to look for the mattress cover. It wasn't there. Only a mattress pad. Im happy to report that I wasn't bitten by any bugs. Although that could be...

The rooms are always super clean and quaint. I have stayed here a couple of times when I've come to Bloomington for business. The service and the great price here is what keeps me coming back. The manager Jay is what made my stay!

The owner was very nice and helpful. The room was very clean and neat. For an older property it is well taken care of. The bathroom was very clean and well taken care of. The owner gave me great ideas for diner that night. The rooms are not large but finished nicely.

While in Bloomington I can't explain how helpful the manger was at this motel. He directed me to some of the best spots to eat and things to do. Room was super clean and overall I enjoyed my stay very much. I'll definitely be back, and this is where I plan to stay --- which is a true testament to...

The hotel room was spotless and the manager was extremely pleasant and helpful. The hotel had already put mattress liners on all the mattresses to prevent bedbugs, but we got a dozen bites anyway. It really isn't the fault of the hotel, their guests bring them in and they are nearly impossible to keep out without spraying. I suggested he...

I was positively surprised by the high quality and cleanness of the motel. It was more like a real hotel with a fridge, TV set and other nice things in a room. Ideal for business, convenient for the university visitors. Manager Jay was extremely friendly too.

Price was right, and room received for that price was expected. It is pretty basic offerings, but this was business so I was not needing too much. Bed was comfortable, room was clean but dated. Area is quiet for the most part. They do have long-term tenants and apartments that stay further back from the regular rooms, so you may...

Stayed 3 minutes and ask for refund and found another place to stay. Room smelled like an ashtray. It was just nasty. Man at the front desk reminded me of Norman Bates. From the movie Bates motel.........

Enjoyed two nights at this motel recently. The room had a very comfortable king-size bed, and was complete with a TV, microwave and refrigerator. The bathroom, while small, had a large walk-in shower with great water pressure and plenty of hot water. Bottled water and coffee were offered in the office. The staff were very friendly, knowledgeable about the area...

Clean rooms, fridge & microwave, and a nice walk-in shower (RM 107). Busy weekend, so we just needed somewhere to leave our stuff and sleep. Worked very well for our needs and price was unbeatable. South of town where there was much less traffic, too. Desk personnel were very polite and helpful.
