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

It is a dump. The lobby doesn't look horrible, however the hallway and rooms are another matter. The carpeting in our room was old and needed a good cleaning and the bed was hard as rock. It just looked dingy. We settled in and my husband got a call to come to the desk. When he got there they said... More

We picked this hotel because several family members were staying there for a family funeral and the price was economical. When we checked in we were sent to a room with a large box in the middle of the room and there were no heat controls on the unit. Went to the front desk, and they changed rooms for us... More

This establishment was an excellent 'find', amidst a large cluster of big name and higher name motels of very good reputation. This Motel, part of the Best Western Family, was clean, efficient, quiet, and had an admirable staff. In particular, one Mrs Roshni, was extremely gracious, and a bonus to her employer. I would recommend anyone to this motel.

The Castleton Inn advertises as a Best Western, but there is no BW sign outside. The lady at the desk looked overworked and tired, but the room service was kind. My guess is that this hotel is seriously understaffed. The stairs between the floors were absolutely dirty, for example. Breakfast was extremely poor, the coffee tasted like water and there... More
