Although located in a not so great part of town, this place lives up to its very good reputation. A free workable computer, a mini-fridge, reasonably good cable channels, and even BACON at breakfast on a Tuesday morning. I think the worst part of this place IS the location as you have to make a u turn to get there... More

I like this hotel and have stayed here several weeks in a row while in Indy on a business project. The staff is friendly and professional.

It started with check-in. I had missed the group rate set up by our basketball club, but I went ahead and paid extra online, to stay at the same hotel. We all arrived pretty much at the same time and the desk clerk, said that since I was with them, he could give me the same rate. Two thumbs up!!... More

This hotel had it all. The pillows were plush and comfortable. The rooms were clean and the breakfast was exceptional. I am quite thrilled that they had more then I had expected for the price. It was close to an all you can eat Chinese food that served fresh made sushi. They were personable about my (Emotional Support Pet) but... More

I stayed here for 3 nights on business. The room was large and clean. The staff is friendly. The in room air conditioner unit was very noisy. The breakfast buffet is limited, but fine if you want some cereal and coffee. The nieghborhood is safe but a bit bleak. It is about 7 miles from downtown. Other than fast food... More

Thank you for your review. I am glad we were able to provide you a large clean room and that we have friendly staff.

Stayed one night on a recent road trip. Check-in staff person was very friendly and helpful, unlike the front desk staff the following morning. The morning staff would barely make eye contact, as if they didn't want to be bothered by your questions. The room was fine, no complaints. We found the location a bit challenging for our GPS for...

We go to the Indy 500 every year and have stayed at this property before since the location is not a bad option to the track and activities in the area.

This hotel was exactly what you'd expect from a Holiday Inn Express. It was clean, affordable, and the front desk staff was both helpful and friendly. The breakfast was good as well. The location is really convenient too. It is right off of I-465 near both Greenwood and South Indianapolis. We stayed here for the Indy 500. It is about... More

Booked this hotel through Hotwire. Staff was very friendly. Room was nice and clean. Small microwave and mini fridge was a good perk. Bathroom was very good size. Complementary breakfast was better than many others I've had. Only complaint is the pool was closed for maintenance reasons.
