Right across the street from Indiana Wesleyan is the perfect location when you need a place to stay while visiting your student at IWU. Rooms are cozy, breakfast delicious, owners are so kind. Room 10 has a bonus room and can sleep 4 people. It was a great spot for our boys to sleep. We are definitely going to stay... More

Excellent facilities. It looks small on the outside but our room was spacious and we had a king size bed. Everything was clean on the premises. If u want to make sure u have a quiet room ask for something upstairs. We had the lower unit and could hear some noise from the hallway. Nothing that kept us awake though.... More

It is also right across the street from the college (a great place for an early morning walk while breakfast is being made). The... More

We really love our stay here at the College Inn B&B! We've stayed here twice. The hosts are friendly and kind! This really is the best B&B we have ever stayed. The rooms are very clean, organized, and inviting; the breakfast simply tastes heavenly. We will come again in the future! Thank you, College Inn B&B! :)

Wow, couldn't have been a nicer experience. Very relaxed and laid back, yet great attention to detail both in the rooms as well as in the hosting. Jack was so accommodating and extraordinarily understanding when we accidentally broke a dish in the breakfast room. We were in Room 4. Even though the rooms upstairs are very close together, it couldn't... More

Thank you for this detailed review! When Jack renovated the Inn, he did a couple of things with the new walls to make it extra-quiet, so it's good to hear someone noticed that. Hope you will stay with us again. Diana:) More

Great bed and breakfast! The owners were very accommodating with our varied tastes and schedules. The food was delicious and large portions. The rooms are more than adequate with close or attached baths -especially needed for 8 women!! Will definitely use the house again. Lots of good conversation and 'treats'!!
