Don't look anywhere else!
I couldn't possibly have had a better experience. The Walnut Street Inn is ideal for those wanting to spend time exploring downtown, and at less than a block from The Bluebird, you'd be crazy to stay anywhere else if you're in town for a concert. This was my second stay (first time in lotus room, second in cedar room). Each room has its own charm and special characteristics that make it better than a typical hotel. All of the amenities we needed, nothing we didn't need. It is truly a little gem. We will absolutely be back!

Charming hideaway
Charming place to stay. A bit of a challenge to find the entrance and parking is a bit difficult but worth the effort. Be aware that there is considerable street noise at night, but that is a function of both the location and age of the building itself. Would definitely stay again.

friends coming to bloomington for a weekend getawa
This was absolutely a must stay. i would book this before ever booking another hotel. My wife and our friends were just so impressed with the closeness to campus and downtown bloomington, the cleaniness of rooms and just how nice they were. thank you for such a great weekend here in bloomington. our stay in your facility made the weekend for us.

Definite return to place.
Great room. Loved the hardwood floors. Homey feel. Close parking (don't forget the permit on your bed!). Will book here again if I ever need to get away.
Chris, us1 night trip
Good 6.0
It was worth the price we paid ($40). The view of the Square was nice. Just seemed like no one really gives the place any love. The water jug in the hallway was empty, the one in the common area had a foul taste, the plumbing in the bathroom was very slow, and they left some nasty-grams on the tea tins by the coffee. (If you're that worried about the tea tins disappearing, don't put them out for people to take.) For $40, I'd stay there again. Filled a need for a quick trip to town.

Great bargain!
Great location, room was clean and comfortable. Complete kitchen facilities are available in the common area, as well as books and games. Tip: bring your own body wash/soap. Will stay there again!
James, us2 night trip
Very good 8.0
Great room, very noisy!
The room was great. Perfect for anyone who wants to explore downtown. The only negative was the sound! We didn't know before arrival about the lack of any insulation. The window ac unit also allowed a lot of street noise in. The owners provide ear plugs, but it would have been nice to know before booking!
