I like this Indy Lodge. Its a good value for the cost. It's just different, unlike anyplace I've been. Seems these people care about this old building and have put some creative resources into making it a nice, decent place to stay. And the employees also seem to give a lot of heart into their jobs. The rooms are nice,... More

I was in a tough spot and was going to have to move out. The two lovely ladies at the front desk worked with me and saved my day. The staff here makes sure your stay is the best available. The room was nice and comfortable

Comfortable bed, warm showers, free, reliable internet, fridge and microwave and pleasant staff at a reasonable price. Inside pool is well kept. Not much traffic noise as, while hotel is convenient to the highway it does not sit right next to it.

It's a drug haven. Several people have died in their rooms from overdoses and there is usually police activity around. It is not a safe place to stay. If you're from the area, you know this is not a hotel to stay in when visiting Indy.

Dear MS from Indianapolis, Thank you for taking the time to give us your opinions on the Indy Lodge. Sadly, two people committed suicide within a few days of each. Unfortunately, like all hotels, we must be vigilant for drug use and when we have hard evidence, we evict users without mercy. If you stayed at the Indy Lodge more... More

$162.82 for a two night stay -- The smell is indescribable. And, the noise that comes through the "thin-papered" walls will keep you up for most of the night(s). Be sure to bring your own pillows = the pillows supplied are very small. On a positive, the front desk staff at check-in were friendly.

Hello RhoadesGirl from Kentucky, Thank you for letting us know that you were disappointed with our accommodations. We paid attention and made changes. We no longer mop our lobby floors with vinegar-water, as we believe this is the root cause of the “indescribable odor” you and a couple of others recently told us about. Also, we are converting rooms with... More

We were excited when we called and the person on the phone was so pleasant but it went down hill from there. We walked into our room and were extremely disapointed. Big stains on the carpet, a big stain on the bed spread and sheets and you could see stains on the mattress underneath. We went ahead and stayed because... More

The front desk employees were very friendly. The hotel on the other hand lacks in attractiveness. Old mattresses laying on the sidewalk, lot in the back of building very torn up. The lounge they advertise having is nothing but couches in the lobby. Walls are paper thin we can hear EVERYTHING the other rooms on each side were doing. There... More

We stayed at the Indy Lodge while attending the 2015 mens Final Four in downtown Indy. The hotel was an easy can ride into downtown. The hotel was clean but could use some updating. The main issue we had was with the beds. They were extremely hard and uncomfortable. So much so that my husbands back went out after two... More

Stayed at Indy Lodge just a few days ago!! I've stayed at this hotel a few times but never has my room been so clean. There was a card with Jackie written on it, she did an amazing job cleaning the room. The front desk staff are friendly and helpful. Hotel was overall very clean. Wished the pool was open.... More

Dear "Travler 1975" Thanks for the review. That's great feedback. Feedback we can use. Guess what? The pool is back open. It was just down for routine maintenance.
