rooms are not at pictured. the furniture/desk is like dorm room desks. plaster chunks and cracks in walls. Dirty upholstery. It looked like a prison bus dropped people for early release. There was rednecks working on old rusted cars and pick ups in the parking lot. I saw two pimps and prostitutes here in the lot

If you fear nothing, you'll like the place. Small room, quite a few bugs. Crowd hanging outside all night (this group wants to be truck drivers o.O) antisocial front desk staff, but check in was a breeze. Pet friendly, lots of grass for Fido. watch for bees.

This is the most terrible place I have ever stay. The pictures aren't real. My room doesn't have water. But guess what?, I had little fleas all over my bed. They change me. And the new one DOESNT HAVE WATER! And no tv either! The people that work there don't do anything to help you. They don't bring solutions. They... More

This was a two night stay for me. The first night, I arrived late and was initially given a room in the second building which "hasn't been updated". It smelled horribly of smoke and, as I am terribly allergic, I requested another room. They were able to accommodate me and Ives up to the first building. I think the remodel... More

Very tired and needing a place to stay, we hit up Red Roof. My husband and I have always relied on Red Roof to save us from the bad motel experiences. This time it was Red Roof that was the bad experience and sadly this motel gives the brand a very bad name. At check in the receptionist was less... More

To be honest this place is the cheapest in Indianapolis area, so I was drawn to it. I used Booking.com to book it and was doubting myself a couple times because of the bad reviews people gave. But then I decided to book it since I was only in Indianapolis for one night. Ok, so I checked in. Receptionist was... More

When you reserve a non-smoking room, you expect it to be a non-smoking room. However, right when I opened the door into our room, we were hit with the stench of stale, cigarette smoke. Not the kind that may have been left behind by the previous guest, but 30 years of the filthy smell engrained in the ratty, dark, scraping... More

Stayed on a week day. Very busy place with "shady characters". Open fire in a grill out in open outside door. Bath tub bad horrible shape. Appeared to me like someone had lit a fire in that as well? Door to room banged in & frame looked like it had been kicked in at one time. Just didn't feel safe.... More

I don't typically give bad reviews, but I was completely floored when I arrived to this hotel in hopes of getting the kids in bed and relaxing after a long day. When I arrived, there was a sign on the door saying "No Rooms Available" The girl at the front desk tells me that they cancelled my reservation due to... More
