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.

The Magnuson Inn is not in danger of cracking the top ten places to stay in the Indianapolis area, but if you are looking for decent lodging at a great location and a decent price, it's pretty good. I have been staying there on various nights as a family member is in a nearby hospital. Their advertised price of $39.99... More

First of all, I knew when I made my reservation that this was not a top quality hotel. However, there are many other hotels in this price range that are far better. First, the hotel staff did not direct me to the elevator or my room. The elevator is quite a walk from the front desk and there is no... More
