I stayed 2 nights to be close to the hospital. Upon arriving it took 25 minutes to open outside entrance to our room. The furniture in back entrance so old and shabby I wanted to run. In the room lighting was poor, no instructions for anything other than room service and very little direction in hallways. Immediately I went to... More

DON'T STAY HERE!!! This is a hole!!! Blood on the wall, blood on the curtains, the chair looks like it sat on the curb for a "garage sale". Dirty shower, dirty carpet, dirty floors, disgusting light fixtures, corners have never been cleaned, it is down right disgusting.

The Marten house is a massive 192 room hotel that has seen better days for sure. I had interactions with several of the front desk staff and it was a mixed bag. Some were very polite and helpful, while others were, well, not. The rooms are dated, ours even had some mold on one wall, and depending on what room... More

I booked this hotel in a last minute. I didn't look how far it was from downtown and its about 25 minutes. That is my own fault. But I do not recommend this place if you want something close to downtown. The value was ok. The first room we got looks very nice, but it was on the first floor... More

My wife and I stayed at The Marten House Hotel the evening of 6/23/16. We experienced friendly and efficient staff, a clean and spacious room and a very good breakfast the next morning. There were many early teen soccer players also staying there. There must have been a tournament nearby. This did not effect service or comfortability in the least.... More

The exterior and interior are in desperate need of an update. The linens are old and bathrooms are tiny. It is in a good location, however, if you need to visit St. Vincent Hospital or Brebeuf High School.

We stayed Friday-Monday nights (4) over Memorial Day (Indy 500) Weekend. Not our first stay here, but our first in remodeled room. We were very impressed with check-in staff, and again when we opened the door to our "room". It was more like a mini-suite.

My husband and I stayed here the night before I had to have surgery at IndyOrtho. Yes, it is an old hotel- but the room was clean and comfortable. The staff friendly and helpful. And definitely affordable. I highly recommend The Marten House.
