Showers Inn was a lovely setting for our return to Bloomington and revisiting the IU campus. We had adjoining rooms which was perfect for visiting and catching up. The beds were very comfortable, amenities plentiful, and our breakfasts were hot and delicious thanks to Chef Brad. All members of the staff were welcoming, kind and helpful. I look forward to...

My wife and I stayed in the Lazy River room for our anniversary. The room was quiet and warm for a cold February night. We enjoyed being located close to campus and downtown. We were able to get anywhere in just a couple minutes. With being in our 20's this was our first bed and breakfast. The experience was fun...

Very friendly staff. Our room was clean and very nice. The property was beautiful. The complimentary breakfast was very delicious and better than most complimentary breakfast you get at hotels. Would definitely stay here again!

I'm a little afraid to post this because I'm worried this little secret place will not be available when I want to go again once people learn about it. I've been visiting Bloomington for more than 30 years and just stayed at the Showers Inn this past weekend with my wife fro the first time. Honestly it felt a like...

Great place, comfortable rooms, friendly and accommodating staff! We were allowed to check-in early after taking a red-eye flight into town, and were asked if we had any special requests for breakfast (food was wonderful). Highly recommend!

My first experience at a BNB. Loved it. The room was large, clean and comfortable. I especially liked the hardwood floors. I enjoyed the fireplace and jetted tub. The bed was very comfortable and breakfast was excellent. It was too cold to walk to our favorites on Kirkwood but will do that next time.

What a beautiful place! We came in for an alumni basketball game and ended up getting there well past the regular check in time. The hosts were incredibly accommodating AND had fresh cookies available!! Our room was beautiful, sootless, and quiet. Breakfast was the icing on the pancakes!!! It couldn't have been more delicious. We will DEFINITELY be back and...

My wife and I both liked Showers Inn a lot! Our room was of a style with an ambiance you just can't get in even the nicest motels. Very convenient to all the things that go on in downtown Bloomington. The breakfast was fabulous.

My wife and I opted to stay here instead of a hotel. The location is great, the service was superb, and the breakfast was excellent. We will certainly visit again the next time we are in Bloomington, as you cannot beat the hospitality.

I have now stayed at Shower's Inn on two trips and will continue to return when I go to Bloomington, IN. First I have to say I love Bloomington! The campus is gorgeous and surrounded by interesting restaurants and shops. The best thing of all is you also have Brown County State Park within 20 minutes and it has miles...

“The Roosevelt bathroom is old with original fixtures/tile/etc. If you'd prefer a more modern bath/shower, choose one of the other rooms. Beware if you have problems navigating stairs. There are many to get into the house and up to the room. The Composer house might be a better choice but you'd still have to contend with stairs at breakfast.”
