We stayed at Indy Lodge around April 2016. We have two young children that live with their mother in Columbus Indiana, OS this was a nice place to stop and stay at. We were quickly checked in, went to the room which was rather clean, we had some minor issues. Something that appeared to be hard water stains, however the...

It was worst hotel motel experience I have ever been in my life. The man at the front was very rude. I ask him how he was and told him I liked his accent and where he was from? He said(OUTERSPACE) he was rude all the way threw. We went to the room where it smelled so bad it took...

This was the worst hotel experience ever! Room stunk, no air conditioning, window would not open. Un-real how loud it was. Terrible check in. No handicap room after I had booked it. No elevators. Dirty and gross. Left early. The only redeeming thing was the manager calling me a few days after I left and was nice, and worked with...

It was hard to select a budget hotel in Indianapolis, as most of them had terrible reviews on this site. This seemed to be one of the better ones, so I took a chance. Our king room was clean, as was the bathroom. The wifi was slow and dropped out often. Noise from the hallway carried into the room very...

Dear KYProf, Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on your experience at the Indy Lodge. Overall we appreciate that you seem to have had a fairly positive review given that our mission is to provide a quality stay for less money. We're sorry the pool seemed cool; it may have just been topped off with fresh water...

For the price it was a decent stay. The neighborhood surrounding it was the main concern, considering there were a bunch of people lingering around outside the hotel. I guess whith such a small town there's really no much to do. The whole night sounded like fast and the furious with the amount of motorcycles driving by... The room was...

I have stayed at alot of hotels from time to time. My stay at Indy Lodge was amazing experience. I have never been treated so nicely and welcoming.

I know I'm exaggerating, but really this is a place I would return to. The staff (owners?) were friendly and attentive. It's true that the bed wasn't made for us and sheets and towels are not changed daily, but isn't that a convenience we've just come to expect? The hotel is going through renovations and you can see them working...

Dear 1024, Hello. We appreciate your review very much, and since we're big on training our staff, its a delight you found everyone friendly and attentive. However, I am not pleased to hear that housekeeping missed your room. We certainly do provide cleaning everyday for nightly guests (extended-stay guests, get weekly service). Our renovations are coming to a conclusion and...

Hello Randall, Thank you for taking the time to review the Indy Lodge: the good, the bad and the ugly. Regarding the pot holes (the ugly), yep, the winters in Indiana are hard on the roads etc. We had the pot holes filled the 3rd weekend in March, must have been shortly after your visit - seriously, I'm not joking....

Stayed here for a cheerleading competition with my daughter and dad. Upon arrival the parking lot was filled with huge pot holes. Both of our rooms were old, needed work and smelled funny.
