“Great Place to Stay in INDY”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

I have stayed at this Country Inn & Suites multiple times. There are a lot of customers staying overnight that need to get to the airport in the morning. What I can tell you is that you will get in and out rather quickly.

The food is average, but hot. There is ALWAYS fresh coffee in the lobby.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms on the upper floor to keep things a little quieter.

We stayed here last week while we took a weekend trip out of the state. We have stayed at this hotel twice before when we had an early flight out and it has always met our expectations. We love the option of leaving our vehicle there for up to 14 days while we are gone. The hotel offers a shuttle to and from the airport as needed. We had an early flight so had to leave the hotel at 5am. We arrived in the lobby at 4:55 and the shuttle was parked out front. The free breakfast was not open yet but they provided a "to go bag" with a granola bar, apple, muffin and bottle of water. The ride to the airport is about 15 minutes and they drop you right at your gate.

The rooms are spacious and updated with a flat screen TV and free WiFi. Normally when we stay here the hotel is very quiet. However, on this particular trip there was a large group of construction/railroad workers staying there. We did have one problem with one of the workers playing his car stereo very loud outside our room - the bass was so loud that it was actually causing our room to vibrate. I waited about 20 minutes before going to the front desk to complain. The manager on duty immediately went outside to take care of the problem. The music was turned off and everything was quiet from that point on.

There is a Culver's restaurant next door to the hotel and several other fast food places fairly close. I believe there is an Appleby's about 5 miles down the road.

Make sure you request a room facing the front of the hotel. The on ramp for the interstate runs on the backside of this hotel and the noise from the trucks was very annoying. The rooms were fine and the staff was great. Not much around for dining.

Room Tip: Room facing the front of hotel

Well, I wouldn't pick this place if I wanted dinner nearby. You have to drive about 20 min for a sit down meal. Hotel was clean and quiet. Close to interstate and easy access. We used it as a late night stop on long trip. It was fine for that purpose. Breakfast area clean and they serve their typical waffle machine and biscuit gravy combo. There is a really dirty gas station at the entrance to hotel...gives a bad impression of neighborhood. There is fast food not too far up the street.

I realize that the hotel was close to being sold out this week however as a regular customer with long range reservations there was complete disregard for this status and no effort was made to TRY to offer an upgraded room (with a refrigerator) as we keep groceries for our week while on duty with our airline. Nor was an effort made to keep us on the quiet side of the hotel as we fly all night and sleep during the day. My room was right next to the highway and very loud. The desk staff wasn't the most pleasant.

Room Tip: Hope that you get someone with a bit of graciousness at the desk.

My wife and I stayed in room 311 and found it to be very comfortable, clean, and relatively quiet, even though it overlooks the Interstate and the airport is close by. The WiFi signal strength was strong. The disabled parking spaces are a fair walk from the front door. The breakfast was one of the best yet and the staff were highly professional and helpful. The pool has a chair lift which is a very welcome addition. Definitely gets a gold star and we will definitely return.

Nice place! I was only here for 1 night. I thought the desk staff was friendly and helpful. There was a challenging customer in front of me that was clearly agitated. The staff was always polite and handled the situation professionally. I stayed in a 2-queen room. The room was plenty spacious and was up to date. The bathroom was clean top to bottom. The bed was comfortable. The linens were like new and didn't give me that creepy 'somebody else has used these feel'. All in all, a very good experience. I get to Indianapolis at least once a year and the Country Inn & Suites at the Indianapolis Airport is my go to place. Thanks!
