“Nice Room, Horrible Neighborhood”
Reviewed 1 March 2008

The rooms were really nice for a simple Motel 6. However, what lurked outside of the door scared me greatly. We went to the walmart down the street to purchase toothpaste and the people there were rude, crude and rough. We spent the night there hoping our car would still be there in the morning and switfly checked out!

Reviewed 19 September 2006

The hotel was clean, and the cleaning staff great, but the desk clerk was rude. The air conditioner did not work during a very humid/hot time (outside temps mid 90s). Housekeeping very responsive but the front desk was not. There are other hotels in the area with comparable prices and much better accomidations.

Stayed at the Motel 6 Indianapolis South for the 2005 Brickyard 400. It is about 20 minutes away from the speedway, and is located in a commercial/industrial area, with a few neighboring hotels on the other side of the interstate. It was no more than a couple minutes drive to a number of different restaurants and shopping, making it a convenient starting point each day. The rooms were larger than an average Motel 6, making that a nice bonus. Our room overlooked the pool and the interstate, and surprisingly, there was no noise from either. Did not get to use the pool, as our weekend was filled with race activities, but it looked nice and clean. Did not get housekeeping one day, that was the only downside of the stay. Overall, this property is much better kept than your average Motel 6 and the rooms are certainly priced right. I would stay at this Motel 6 again and recommend it to anyone looking for an inexpensive hotel in Indianapolis.

Stayed August 2005
