Front desk put the wrong room number in the computer, so someone got assigned to our room and rattled the knob from 3-5am until another employee used the master key at 5am and realized we were inside when he shined a flashlight in my face. They went away after that but needless to say we didn't get enough sleep. Otherwise... More

This was the worst hotel room I have ever seen. We booked this because there were no other rooms available near Indy for the Big Ten Championship game. When we checked in the room stunk. The carpet was filthy. The bathroom floor was filthy. I would not stay here. We immediately checked back out and got lucky and found a... More

I am lying in bed right now at this motel scared to death!someone keeps banging on the door. My sister booked this room for 1 night for our trip to Hankfest. She obviously didn't read the reviews. Next time I'm in charge of booking the room, this is ridiculous! Don't stay here it's very shadey and scary!

I don't know what the patrons of this hotel are doing at night, but it's not sleeping. The place is loud, with thin walls, and scary characters are hanging around outside at all hours. I put earplugs in, tried to ignore everything around me, and somehow made it through two days in this pit. Never again.

Very unsafe area. I was alone and had a very bad feeling even before I went into my room. I stayed 2 hours, trying to decide whether to stay or go. The longer I stayed, the worse I felt. I would not recommend this motel to anyone. I was afraid to carry my stuff from the car to my room.... More

My husband and I absolutely did not feel safe here. We stayed here during the drive from Nebraska to our home in Maryland, so we are not familiar with Indy at all, but this place sure didn't give a good impression of the city. The people in the next room and outside made a lot of noise during the night,... More

This place is bad. We've stayed at lots of Motel6's across the US over the years and generally been satisfied. This place was disgusting, nasty, and not clean. Don't make the mistake of staying here. We checked in late at night and were tired from being on the road so once we unloaded all our gear we were too tired... More

This motel was ultra-cheap (I paid $29.00 a night), so for the money, it was a good deal. The rooms were a bit worn out but clean. The area was decent - some motels and restaurants close by. It was a good pet-friendly motel. I stayed in the handicapped room on the first floor, it was on a corner and... More

I stayed here much of January, because I live out of town and work in Indianapolis. As of this morning, however, I will NEVER make that mistake again! There has always been problems everytime I stayed. These problems, to name a few, include: 1. Burn holes in the comforters (although I never slept underneath the covers). 2. Bathroom fan/one of...
