    I went to the bathroom. Do not forget 'the'.

    You could say "I went into the bathroom"  Not simply 'in'.

    Note that, in the USA, 'going to the bathroom' usually means going into that room to use the toilet.  In Britain we use other expressions.

    neither

    I went to the bathroom

    I went into the bathroom

    and if you mean toilet, outside the USA you say toilet, not bathroom/restroom

    Both will actually work, but 'to' would sound better, but the sentence should read:

    I went ___ the bathroom.

    I went in bathroom.

    went to mean "move from one place to another" on the other hand went in ( go in) "mean to enter some place".

    My answer is I went in bathroom

    Both can be correct depending on context.

    "Went to" often means using the toilet.

    "Went in" could also mean that, or simply going into that specific room for another purpose, say, washing hands or getting a towel.

    Both are correct, but have slightly different meanings.
