Special Discounts Available at McDowell-Nearing House
BSU and Taylor Parent Special
Ball State University and Taylor University Parents stay 6 nights with us at our regular rate and the 7th night is free. You must tell us you have a student at Ball State or Taylor when making your reservation. Stay at McDowell-Nearing House when you bring your son or daughter for freshman orientation and call us your home away from home for the next 4 years.
Yes, graduate and professional students' parents qualify for this program too, as do parents of other Indiana college students when visiting their offspring.
You may use your free night weekdays, most weekends, and some holidays, but you cannot use it for graduation weekend.

Our Senior Citizen discount is offered on weekdays. Seniors age 65 and older get 10% off the nightly rate Sunday - Thursday. There is a 15% discount off our nightly rate for a 2-night or longer weekday stay. (Holidays excluded). Ask for the Senior Discount when making your reservation. The discounted rate will be shown on your reservation confirmation if you book online.
Military and Law Enforcement Special
We truly appreciate what our law enforcement and military personnel do each and every day to protect our freedoms and are deeply indebted to them. Because of that, we extend a 25% discount off our regular room rates to all United States military veterans and law enforcement officers. Active duty service members are extended a 30% discount. Simply tell us your military status when making a reservation and bring your military ID or badge for check in to receive the discount.
