Where do I begin.... so my co-workers and I got 3 rooms here. We went into one of the rooms to find 2 defibulators (the things EMTs use to jumpstart your heart) on the wall, blood and bleach stains on the ground, and cockroach poop in both beds. We bring the front desk guy in and show him and he... More

The carpets were dirty, and I mean covered with stains and not vaccumed. I didn't take my shoes off. The ceiling had black smudges on it. Not sure what that was. The bathroom was a petri dish, filled with black mildew or mold. I'm not an expert. The heating/cooling unit was noisy and we were never able to make the... More

This hotel was disgusting. Durning check in the family who owns the hotel was hanging out sitting in the lobby bare foot. The hall way to our room was not swept. But the worse part was when we got to our room. The toilet was dirty, the shower was dirty, there were stains on the wall, the bathroom door was... More

This is the nastiest motel.... I mean "hotel" I have ever stayed in. The room has a pungent odor of mold, mildew and cigarette smoke. The carpet is completely covered in black dirt and grime! Thats right dirt!!!!! Mold is growing on the ceiling in the bathroom (and I have the pictures to prove it.) And to think this abhorrent... More

I arrived at the Magnuson Hotel Castleton Inn in Indianapolis Indiana on Sunday August 3rd. I was staying at this hotel through the eighth for a training a couple of miles away. When I first arrived it took approximately twenty minutes for me to be booked in, as there was no one at the front desk. When the guy working... More

I wish I could post photos. Moldy shower curtain. Cobwebs. Handprints on dirty walls. Crazy huge spider nest in the window(inside). What appears to be snot all over bathroom walls. To sum it up, everything is absolutely filthy.

It smelled like bad chicken or eggs. would not stay here again. They came in our room even though we didn't ask them too and claimed damage on the carpet... More

Dirtest hotel I have ever stayed in. Dirty floors, dead bugs in the corners, scum all over the shower, light bulbs burnt out and the most unfriendliest owners/family operated hotel. It felt unsafe. Definitely other hotels in the area for the same price that are much nicer.
