“A pleasant surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

My family and I, consisting of 4 adults and 3 children, booked two rooms for a one night stay. Check-in was quick and friendly. The rooms were clean and comfortable. But the pleasant surprises were the evening Kickback and the breakfast. Good food (not gourmet, but very good) and a great evening happy hour and meal if you're open to just basic food and drink. We and our kids and grandkids loved it. The kids also enjoyed the pool after the Kickback. The only small negative was our room air conditioner was pretty noisy, but that doesn't change the overall satisfaction. Given the situation, we'd stay here again without a doubt!

Room Tip: If you want want it more quiet, ask for a room away from the expressway.

My husband and I met our son's family @ the Drury Inn a few weeks ago and, wow, what a wonderful place to stay! We have since stayed there again and will continue to come back when we visit Indy in the future!!! We had 3 son's who all played travel hockey, so needless to say, we spent half our lives in hotels all over the country and never once stayed at a Drury Inn....what a loss for us!!!!
The check-in both times were fast and friendly....the lobby is spacious and has beautiful marble throughout. Our grandkids absolutely loved the heated indoor/outdoor pool....(loved swimming back and forth under the wall....what a cool and unique feature)!!! The pool area was very clean and equipped with pool towels at all times. The rooms were very nice and clean and the beds were very comfortable. But what we enjoyed the most was the absolutely awesome Breakfast (and I mean AWESOME) and the unbelievable evening layout (and I mean UNBELIEVABLE and UNEXPECTED). The Manager made many rounds making sure everyone was ok and had what they needed.....We really can't say enough except...WOW; very impressive... we would have a hard time finding and/or staying elsewhere for the reasonable room rates that they have and all the amenities that go along with your stay. We will always go back as long as they have rooms available!!! PS..my husband loved the around the clock popcorn and sodas....GREAT JOB DRURY

I was working in Indy for three weeks, and my company set me up in the Drury Inn. I went home on weekends, so I actually stayed in three different types of rooms. The King Suite was very nice and really too big for just one person. The 2 Queen bed room was also nice, but did not have a mini-fridge which would have been better. On the last week I had a King bed and the room had a fridge. All three rooms were very clean and had the same nice decor. Large HDTV was good. Was not too crazy about a soap dispenser in the shower, but used the small hand soap in the sink area instead.

The breakfasts were fantastic! Eggs, sausage, potatoes, biscuits and gravy, cereal, donuts, bagels, etc! The evening snack/meal was also very good. Every day you could have a baked potato, soup, salad or hotdog. In addition, they rotate theses menu items every 2 days: Ziti and meatballs, then chicken strips and mac/cheese. It's all you can eat, so a good value for families. They also give a coupon for 3 free drinks with this meal, which includes beer, wine and mixed drinks. I stuck with the wine. The drinks are somewhat small, but you can't beat the price!

I have never stayed at a Drury inn before, but this one was so good that I'd consider this hotel and hotel chain for other business and family trips.

I have to admit that I have never stayed at a Drury Inn before. I was apprehensive before the booking. Upon arrival, I was impressed with the high ceiling lobby and the décor of the hotel. The receptionist Jake and the General Manager, Andrew Woodruff, were most helpful. The room was spacious and clean. Best of all, it has a soap and shampoo dispenser in the bathroom. I have seen them in Asia but never in US. They are environmental wise and efficient. The breakfast was above and beyond the same class hotels.
All and all, we were extremely pleased with our stay. We will come back.

Our family has traveled to Indianapolis four or five times in the last year. We have stayed at this property on each occassion because we have been met with a very clean and pleasant environment, friendly and professional staff who had customer service as an obvious goal, and bountiful and delicious food. The General Manager of this property clearly sets a high goal of providing great value to the guests and the provision of exceptional service. Thanks for many wonderful stays. We will see you again soon!

We stayed for 3 nights during an end-of-the-year trip with our troop of 13-year-old girls and it was the perfect choice. The two-room suites were spacious and comfortable, and free breakfast and Kickback hour made it a great value.

While it's obviously outside Downtown, it's conveniently located near the highways and is just down the street from numerous fast food/chain restaurants and a mall. Have never really had a bad experience with a Drury, but this one was certainly well-maintained with a friendly and accommodating staff.

My only experience with Drury In before this one was years ago near the Atlanta airport which was a dump in service and facility. This Drury Inn was tremendous and a pleasant surprise. Everything was tremendous in appearance as soon as we entered the hotel. the breakfast options were varied. the room was very clean and had all we needed. I was there attending a meeting in the neighborhood which ended after checkout on my last day at the hotel. They granted my a generous extended checkout time, even though the Indianapolis 500 crowd was beginning to filter in to town for the race a week later.

The meeting personnel ranged a special rate which was well below the walk-in rate.

If we ever go back to this part of Indianapolis, we will likely stay here again.
