I was pleasantly surprised by the Cascades Inn. I felt I got a great deal for what I paid for. Beds were big and clean. Breakfast that was included was delicious and full of local products like Square Doughnuts and cider from a local orchard.

Thanks for your nice review! We are happy you liked the breakfast. We keep it simple but try to bring in as many local producers as we can, including fresh roasted, fresh ground coffee from our local Hopscotch Roaster and real Bloomington Bagels on the weekends. Hope we see you again soon!

Hi James, thanks for staying with us for the Hilly Hundred. We definitely aren't a modern hotel. We are one of those classic (I prefer classic rather than dated) mid century motels. Every room is different and we kind of go crazy with our landscaping and exterior amenities – something the modern chains don't have time for – though our top goal is clean rooms, comfortable beds, and maintaining a reasonable price. By the way, we know some nice, quiet shortcuts to the IU stadiums and campus the next time you are in town.

superbe place with amazing service. We were welcomed by Peyton after a long drive with smiles and helpful information. There is a lovely central garden area, BBQ, confortable lounge and a play corner for kids with wooden games.
Such pleasure to eat local produce on china plates..

The first room we were assigned was very dark with the window overlooking the stairwell. When we inquired about changing rooms, they booked us into one of the king suites with French doors overlooking a garden area with a purple flowering bush covered in monarch butterflies. This

Hi Paula, thanks for your nice review and we are happy you liked the king suite facing the garden courtyard (we're happy the Monarchs like it too!). Hopefully you will be able to come back and visit soon.

Our room had bugs. A few roaches and numerous very loud crickets who chirped constantly all night. Bathroom fixtures were from the 1960s. The air conditioner was noisy and didn't dehumidify. I expect better for $400/night.

Hi Mike, sorry I don't often see roaches so needless to say I am surprised you saw a "few". Backing onto a wooded park, and with gardens on the other side, we definitely get our share of southern Indiana crickets. They go well with the cicadas when they all decide to sing. We are a 1960's retro motel style facility (and proud of it!) so you are spot on on the 1960s bath fixtures.

Does this hotel offer a free breakfast?
Hi Rachel, sorry we are currently not serving breakfast as part of the room reservation. However, on busy weekends we will put out a light continental breakfast with local made bagels and donuts.
