We booked this last minute because other hotels were taken. It looks rough from the outside and the inside isn't much better. They've made the lobby look nice, but that's about it. The eating area had a strange leak from the ceiling - the liquid draining down was yellowish. Unappetizing to say the least.

The owners are updating hotel, which is not finished yet. Rate is reasonable compared to other hotels near by. The swimming is huge and has laundry room attached. Renovation of fitness rooms is pending. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Breakfast was good for price and comes with room. Free parking.

Attended a family reunion dinner in one of the conference rooms here. This whole hotel needs updating still has the original decor from when it opened in the late 70s or early 80s. Even the grounds are unkept. It is only 6 miles to downtown Indy and is located right off of the expressway.

There is nothing I can say that is good about this hotel. Staff was unhelpful at every turn. I couldn't do my work because lack of wifi. I had about 13 channels to choose from to watch tv, the rest were fuzzy. The pool is under renovation. I was most frustrated with not being able to get wifi to work.... More

If you're just looking for a cheap bed to sleep in for a night this place is perfect. Only spent one night here but I would hate to spend another one. The place is just really run down and old and could be cleaner. I'm glad I wasn't in need of a shower because the bathroom was pretty grimy. Other... More

There was some confusion with my reservation and our room got cancelled during a sold out weekend. The gentlemen at the front desk went above and beyond and were able to get us a room for the night. Hotel is older but clean. The pool is closed for renovations and the Damon's is no longer there but the free breakfast... More

First. It would have 1 star if the staff weren't so nice. Air conditioning poor at best. Door handle broken OFF so it took time to reattach every time to leave.

My wife and I stayed here for the 100th Indy and were pleasantly surprised with our stay. The hotel is an older building under refurbishment, but the rooms are reasonably priced, clean and you get free breakfast! All of the staff was very friendly and helpful.
