I had stayed here last year, but had some problems. Being the nice guy that I am, I gave it another shot. Things have improved. The staff is very friendly. They were doing some remodeling outside, as well as fixing the roof, so they are trying to keep up with things. Pool area was clean this time.
I had an upgraded room which was nice. It was clear and had a good view of downtown Indianapolis. You couldn't really hear the street noise so sleeping was easy.
There are still a few problems. The spa and printer in the business center were out of order. I didn't ask when or for how long, but they at least had a note saying this. Breakfast was good, however I was surprised there were no bananas. This may be the first HI Express I have stayed in without them. It's a staple breakfast item. The TV selection is also mediocre. Not even all of the locals are carried, and they need a few more sports options. The water pressure is weak, and the bathroom exhaust fan did not clear the steam off of the mirrors.
I will be back in town next year and will probably stay here. Hopefully they will iron out the kinks.
