Great location. Friendly staff. Atmosphere is fantastic

Great decor. Close to IU Campus and to the downtown area. Friendly staff.

I loved the hotel. I have been coming to Bloomington since 1981, and this is the nicest hotel. A great addition to the Bloomington community. Clean, convenient and unique.

Property was in a great location closer to restaurants and the university. The hotel was nicely decorated with IU themes. Parking garage got full in the evenings and had to ask the front desk to open the valet lot. Also, due to Covid there was limited staff and had to wait a while to get towels or other amenities to the room. Overall it was a pleasant stay.

Perfect location, fantastic accommodations and pet friendly!

Great location and a fabulous staff!! We will return!

Fun hotel, great staff, great location. Only downside was the tv stations did not work in some instances.

Clean attractive and comfortable. Great location. Beds were very comfortable.

Great room. Got an upgrade because they were fairly empty the days we were there.

Super comfortable, boutique hotel right on trendy Kirkwood. I would definitely stay there again.

Clean, liked decor of room No coffee making in room, very loud in floor, only 1 set of towels in room k owing 2 people staying in there

The property was very clean and staff were very friendly. We loved the outdoor space even though it was cold out. I appreciated the red chairs throughout the hotel and all the other decor was very well done! We were in Bloomington for college capmus visit with our high school son. If he chooses IU we will definitely be staying at the Graduate during visits.

Staying at the Graduate Hotel is like coming home to my son at IU. The warmth, professionalism and hospitality is always appreciated to this Chicago mom.

Great property in the best location in Btown. Also got an amazing deal.
