Stayed here last week. It was an okay place, but you could tell it was an older property. It also is not located very convenient to restaurants. After driving all day, all I want to do is walk to a close place for dining. Well, at this location, that was not possible. The complimentary breakfast we had in the morning... More

I should start by mentioning that all staff members were friendly; that being said, there were a couple of problems. When I checked in, the sheet I signed correctly noted that I had reserved a room with one king-sized bed plus a sofa bed, but when I entered the room I saw that it had two double beds and no...

Given the proximity of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway to the Indianapolis International Airport made getting an airport hotel almost impossible on Indianapolis 500 weekend. Luckily this hotel only about 10 miles away was offering rooms at a comparitively reasonable rate. Was given a clean quiet room by a friendly staff and the breakfest staff had everything ready to go by... More

Lots of people checking in, but lines moved quickly and check in was fairly efficient. Room was clean and the right temperature. Breakfast was good with a number of choices. Coke machines were located on only the second and third floors.

My family booked a Family Fun Adventure (tickets to the Zoo and Children's Museum) and chose to stay at this hotel. Unfortunately, there was a terrible storm during our stay, and lightening knocked out the power to the hotel.

We usually stay in downtown Indy when we are here but because of several large events going on at the same time we ended up a little further south than usual. We had a group of 25 teenage swimmers and were with another team of 17. That would be enough to scare away most hotel staff. The HIE staff was... More

If I'd have paid full price for this room, i would have been supremely displeased. I AM a fan of the staff. They were friendly and courteous. When I had complaints they saw to them immediately.
