We chose this hotel based on reviews, price & location. We were going to the Colts home opener, the stadium is about 5 miles away, but it is an easy drive to the downtown core and quite a bit less expensive then staying in the downtown core. The room was clean, beds comfortable, the continental breakfast was adaquete and the... More

Allan, Thank you for the review and the high rating! I do remember talking to you, especially about the "secret" trick to our parking lot. (Hint; Turn left at the light on Thompson then turn right to go behind the CVS and just follow the access road as it goes around the next parking lot and leads you into ours).... More

Rooms were clean. Hotel looked good from inside and out. Staff was very pleasant. Felt safe parking our car for the night and was able to come and go as wanted. Would definately stay here again for work or pleasure.

We've been staying at this location since it opened over ten years ago. This is probably our last time staying at this location. Although staff was professional and friendly the rooms are in need of a re-do. Breakfast served is the typical HIE fare (which is totally acceptable) and kept filled and cleaned up well. This location has a nice... More

Hi, Thanks for the review and the many return trips. I am sorry you couldn't give us a higher rating and as I read the review it did seem that overall the hotel is pretty decent, just that the rooms are dated in appearance. In fact, I didn't see anything, even about the rooms that mentioned not being clean, just... More

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. You are correct that within walking distance of the hotel there are not many awesome dining choices (not sure why that should count against us) but about 10 mins north or 10 mins south by car,...

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...
