This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed at! Hairs on the bed, filthy bathroom, and the place is falling apart. They need to demolish it and build a nice hotel. I would never stay here again! In fact, I left and went and stayed at the Howard Johnson.

The hardest part of working on the road is finding a hotel that is affordable yet safe. The Dollar Inn was so affordable that I should have known better. There was a moped stolen and sketchy characters wandering the parking lot obviously looking in cars for booty to pillage. I lost about 20 gallons of paint myself. At one point... More

As this is being written, according to Trip Advisor there are 34 places in the Indianapolis area that are rated lower than the Dollar Inn - Castleton and that's scary. I HAD to stay at this motel due to a logistical issue, which I am correcting so I will not have to stay again. I checked in around 10 p.m.,... More

They dont even have mattress covers. I would recommend this place only if they change their houskeeping or get... More

I chose this hotel because it was cheap. It was honestly the worst place I have ever stayed. The staff dresses like thugs and are far from professional. The rooms were nasty. Bugs would crawl across the bed. (Beetles, Pill Bugs, Ants, Cockroaches, etc) I had two different rooms thinking that maybe it was a fluke. The staff there likes... More

We drove our friends to Indianapolis, because they were leaving to catch a plane in the early a.m. Anyways, when we arrived we got three total rooms. First, I thought it was strange that we had to pay for ice and talk to a rude man through plexi-glass to get a hotel room. However, we just dealt with it and... More

We just happened to stay at Dollar Inn because we were about to go to our friends house, but we were kind of drowsy so we decided to stop and get some rest. We came in the front desk and the front desk was very nice and accommodating. We went into the room and we were surprised how the room... More

We were lucky to get out alive! How this place stays in business I'll never know? We woke up in this motel (sic.), that we hope is waiting to be closed by the health department. It is a filth trap, and we were getting ready to go to the INDY 500. While I was getting ready in the bathroom, we... More
