Spent most of the 3 days at the speedway or going around to autograph sessions in town, so was only at the motel to sleep. When you are used to a quiet little 2 stop light town, police sirens and people argueing a couple rooms away aren't the norm. That was the first night, the second night a lot more... More

The hotel is surprising quiet. The room is a great value for the price and the staff is as professional and helpful as a 5 star hotel. The room is nothing fancy, not super clean and a little run down, BUT, for the price, it is a good deal. I will stay here again. On two different trips in May... More

NO room cleaning and NO towels were replaced during our 4 day stay. Fortunately I had a couple of towels in the car. On the 3rd day despite a promise from the Manager for a room clean and sheet change the room was not even touched nor were any towels or sheets provided. Staff refused to even provide another room...

For starters, I have to admit, we got this for cheap. The rate we paid for the room was $43, but we didn't even get what we paid for, we got less than that. Maybe it was just a wake up call that I can no longer expect to pay low prices and get decent service. The lady at the... More

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.
