“Great Hotel in a Very Good Location”
Reviewed 24 September 2013

The hotel is perfect for short or long stays. I stayed only 2 nights, but I saw several long-term lodgers that seemed to be right at home. The suite was comfortable and in good repair. The kitchens looked to be newly renovated. The hotel staff were very professional, personable, and helpful. They have an outdoor grilling area, whirlpool, some exercise equipment, free internet, and even free laundry. It is an easy 13 miles to the downtown area and located at the junction of I-69 & I-475. There are a few restaurants nearby. I noticed they had, but missed out on, free appetizers they had catered in on one of the nights. As an IHG member, they acknowledged my status and gave me a room upgrade, which was nice.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the highway. It is a bit noisy in the morning.

Very clean and convenient! The suites were large and had plenty of space. They have free wireless Internet which is always a plus also. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We would for sure stay here again.

We are local residents and just wanted a night out. Our suite was on the 3rd floor and upon entering the room the smell was of a dirty vacuum. We were only going to leave our items, then go out to dinner. We hoped that once the air condition was turned on and we got back ,the odor would be gone,
We were back within 2 hrs. The odor was lessened, but still noticeable. We had no other complaints of our room. I went down to the service desk and was offered an apology and a deodorizing spray. I will admit, the spray had a nice scent of 'Orange creamscicle' , and lasted longer than I thought.
The Jacuzzi was and pool area was clean. Temperature perfect. Again, no other issues.
Also, with it being right by I-465 and even though our room faced that way, we heard no noise that caused us sleeping problems. Well built building.

We stayed here for one night on business in August 2013. I am an IHG points member and chose this hotel based on points. This hotel is actually in northern Indy, right off the thruway in a suburbish type area. Right by the hotel (100 yards) in a Thai restaurant, a steakhouse and a convenience store. This makes it relatively convenient as nothing is really all that far away (including a mall). The drive here from the airport is roughly 30 minutes and is very straightforward. We happened to have business a few miles down the street which made this convenient for our needs.

Check in was smooth, staff was really nice across the board. They have a "movie rental service" which is really a DVD library the front desk runs. They also have a pool (we didn't use) and a "lend an item locker" which had blenders, board games, etc. You can tell this hotel is generally good for longer term stays and families as each room has a full kitchenette with fridge, stove, microwave and dishwasher. The hotel also has a workout room and full self serve laundry. The rest of the room is pretty basic with a lounger, TV, bed and basic bathroom with tub/shower combo, sink, etc. Considering the star class of this hotel is a 2/3 the rooms were actually pretty nice, clean and comfortable.

All in all it was an OK stay. Decent rooms, nice staff, etc. I would give this hotel somewhere between a 3 and a 4 on tripadvisor. Some things that could have been a bit nicer would include a breakfast option in the hotel (not going to go to a steak house or thai place for breakfast), perhaps updating the rooms at some point in the future (bathroom, lounge chair)....... We would stay here again if we were doing business in the area.

We had stayed at the hotel for a cheerleading event in the winter and knew it would be perfect for my daughter's wedding. We were able to get rooms next to each other and this made it very easy for the group to join in the kitchen area and head up for all the various wedding functions. It is close to downtown. The hotel is quiet with comfortable beds. (pillows bring your own as they are not the best). The full kitchen and wide tables are very handy. To us it felt like we were in a small apartment which was great.
