Close to Banker's Life

Posted Sep 30, 2014
Pros: Comfortable, clean, nice staff. Can walk to downtown and Banker's Life.
Cons: Outside should be painted or something. From the outside, it is not very nice, but the inside is really nice. As nice as more expensive hotels.
Location: Went to a conference at Banker's Life. Very short walking distance. Close to restaurants and shopping.
This was a really nice hotel INSIDE. That's why I gave it 4 stars for condition instead of 5 stars. It was very comfortable. Friendly staff and great amenities. The breakfast was well stocked and lots of variety. I would stay here again if I needed to walk in downtown Indianapolis. Next to a heliport, but never heard a sound. Very nice, comfortable room and clean.

Indianapolis La Quinta Inn

Posted Sep 29, 2014
Pros: reasonable price , quality rooms
Cons: maybe better directions on how to get to the hotels
Location: I went mainly for the zoo . but there were many other attractions and restaurant around the area .
Because I was unfamiliar with the streets of Indianapolis ( there are many one-way streets ) I had a little difficulty getting to the hotel . But that is no fault of the hotel . Once I arrived , the staff was EXTREMELY courteous and helpful with my questions and needs . The room was clean and comfortable. La Quinta will be first on my list when getting a hotel for my next trip .

Convenient Economical Hotel With Amazing Breakfast

Posted Sep 15, 2014
Pros: The staff was great. Parking is Free. Close to Downtown. The breakfast won me over.
Cons: The whole building could use a paint job, and the air conditioning units and light switches could be improved.
Location: It's just outside of town. Everything you want to do is about 4 blocks away. It's convenient because parking is free, and it's only a 15 minute walk.
The hotel is unattractive, the rooms are old and the air conditioner sounds like it's going to take off at any minute. But what this hotel lacks in physical appearance, it makes up in charm, service and personality. I was about to pass on this hotel, located on the edge of downtown (about 6 blocks from the convention center, or a 15 minute walk), but then decided at the price I was paying - I'm getting a deal. I'm glad I did too, because by the end of my weeklong stay, I was happy. Staff: The staff is very friendly. From the front desk, to the maintenance team - everyone looks you right in the eye and says hello, good morning or good evening. Amenities: There are none. However, there is a simple but suprisingly satisfying breakfast nook. The kitchen offers delicious biscuits and gravy, self serve waffles, and a variety of breads, bagels, fruits, yogurts and cereals to eat. The service is offered until 9am weekdays, and 10am weekends. This includes Milk, Coffee, Tea, Orange and Apple Juice too. The food is great, and you can eat as much as you like. Facilities: The building must be decades old. The elevator alone seems like it was made in the 1920's, as it has a max capacity of 4 people, has ancient push button controls, and smells of grease. Room is clean, but smells musty. Linens and Towels are old but clean. The windows are clouded over, and the curtains are sturdy but worn. The air conditioning unit is loud, and temperature control is two fold: Freezing, or Off

Not Appealing from Outside - But Great Inside.

Posted Aug 29, 2014
Pros: I liked the FREE onsite parking, the newly refurbished rooms, the helpful staff and the reasonable prices.
Cons: They really need to do something to modernize the exterior of the building. It looks too institutional, and really needs a "face-lift."
Location: It is an easy four block walk to the center of downtown Indianapolis.
I am not familiar with downtown Indianapolis, but this hotel seems to be on the "developing edge" of downtown, about three or four blocks from the central downtown business section. The place looks pretty plain (almost grim) on the outside: It is an old 1940's building that has been completely refurbished inside, but not much has been done to spruce up the exterior. Once I got inside, my entire opinion changed. Yes, the building was old, but the rooms - and bathrooms - had been completely redone and the beds were brand new and extremely comfortable. The free wireless internet worked very well, and the room was immaculate and well-appointed. The staff was welcoming and very helpful, and there was FREE, covered parking on the premises, a very important amenity for a downtown hotel.

Great location to the downtown and affordable.

Posted Aug 12, 2014
Pros: Price and location
Cons: The elevator is extremely small and old, but we understand that would be too expensive to replace. We used the steps, which was better for us anyway,
Location: Easy walking to great restaurants and sporting events
Everything was perfect for us, close to the downtown and yet affordable.

Nice downtown hotel

The hotel was older, but it didn't matter because it was clean & the staff was wonderful. The breakfast selection & eating area were both great as well! We would stay here again.

OK hotel but lots of noise

Posted Jul 31, 2014
Pros: very clean/well kept
Cons: too loud
Location: close to downtown and cheaper than other options
Hotel is located by a heliport and had helicopters landing well pass 11pm on a weeknight. Also there are train tracks nearby that sound whistles consistently throughout the night--did not get much sleep
