"Hospital visit"
Had to move the mattress to access the extension cord to plug in my bi-PAP machine. Few items on the menu in the restaurant.

"great value"
I visit Indy often and didn't know about this hotel. The price was less than the chain hotels and we found the rooms to be clean with comfortable bed. Had room at back of hotel and it was very quiet. Iwould definitely go back.

"Okay if you don't want an expensive hotel."
The hotel was okay, but the parking lot was in poor condition which reflects on the hotel. If they would clean that up, I think it would be a lot more inviting.

"Good for being close to hospital"
Needed a room for pre and post hospital outpatient surgery. The Marten House is an excellent choice for that. Room was spacious and had everything needed. We were not looking for a vacation experience. It is located adjacent to hospital and was perfect for what we needed. We had free internet and the staff was very helpful and the price was good.

"Budget friendly property"
Marten House, although comfortable, was not what it used to be in the 1980s and 1990s. The decor reflects that time period-very outdated. Green wallpaper in the bathroom (ugh). That being said, the price was right for what we needed-a clean comfortable hotel for a few days while in town visiting family. Location is good-the area is not prime, such as downtown or other trendy area, but it is generally easy to get anywhere in the city because you are close to 465. Bed was very comfortable. Overall, would stay here again for same purpose.

"Old needs remodeling and much needed repair"
I took by boyfriend to Indy for his birthday, wanted something special. The room was clean and comfortable but the hotel is run down and needs remodeling. Pictures were deceiving, the hotel is in need of much needed repairs. Water rings on the ceiling, fixtures in the bathroom were loose.

"Restful stay"
Our family drove several hours to Indianapolis to attend the state fair. Thus we were pretty tired and a little stressed from the drive. On arrival we were pleased to find the room was nice and comfortable although you can kind of tell that the buillding itself is somewhat older. The weekend buffet breakfast was reasonably priced and the food was very good, especially the "real" sausage and bacon. The staff was extremely helpful when we needed to book an additional room for more family members who joined us later in the weekend. If we need a hotel in Indianapolis again we will definitely consider this one.

"Hotelpital"
This hotel is very convenient for guests with family members convalescing at the nearby hospital. For those in Indy for other business or pleasure, a more cheery place in a different neighborhood would be more pleasant. It's a bit depressing and a little strange feeling. Still, it's clean and the in room fridge is quite large.

Very cheerful and helpful front desk staff. Room was clean and spacious. Hotel is conveniently located across street from Peyton Manning Cancer Center (visiting a relative at the Center was the reason for our stay). Family had fun in the pool-very clean and tidy. Did dine in the hotel dining room. Dining room staff was wonderful. Burgers were overly well done, other meals just fine. Nice stay despite our reason for being in the area.

"Decent place for short stay"
The pictures on here are of the NEW conference room. The hotel portion is not shown much. Public areas are nicely lit and look clean, for the most part. Pool area looks very nice. There is an interesting smell through the halls. The rooms are OK, the toiletries are good actually. They give you shaving cream, sewing kit, toothpaste...this is the best part of it. The room lighting is decent, really dark carpets always make me feel i need to keep my sandals/shoes on at all times. No free breakfast, which is a bummer. All in all, for a one night stay I highly recommend it. Oh, I am pretty sure the hotel used to be part of the nearby hospital...at least that is my personal take on it.

Nice hotel, close to St. Vincent's. The Indianapolis Children's Museum is close by and a must see if you have kids! There are many great restaurants close by. The hotel pool was nice, but was closed for 2 out of the 3 days we stayed. Housekeeping left the door to our room open after they cleaned it, but luckily none of our items went missing. They also started cleaning our room before we checked out on the last day, so we had to check out early.

The hotel is clean & has a courteous staff. It's about 30 minutes from down town. The surrounding area has many eateries, Krogers/Whole foods grocers & stores like Walmart & office depot. Overall, you should have a comfortable stay.

"Decent hotel, good for the price."
Overall good quality, the staff I came across was nice. Very quiet for Memorial day weekend. Pool was nice, warm. Rooms were okay, nothing spectacular. A bit of a drive to any attractions. Not much around the area. Definitely geared to the business traveler or people visiting the adjoining medical facilities.

"Why is this hotel still open?"
When checking the website for The Marten House, the photos and description are specific to the new conference portion of the property. None of the actual hotel rooms are part of this new construction, and the rooms we were shown have not been updated in the last thirty years. After being assigned a room, I returned to the desk to secure a better room, but even their "best" room was extremely worn out from the quilts, to the mattresses, flooring, and décor. It was very hard to go back to that hotel room to sleep for 3 nights. Shame on you, Marten House for misrepresenting yourselves, and for even remaining open. This hotel should have been bulldozed years ago!

"Deferred Maintenance"
1) worn out sheets had lint balls, nearly thread bare; 2) kid-sized double bed: my toes were dangling off foot of bed; 3) I am taller than the showerhead; 4) bath drain was rusty (that's like a $12 repair, people); 5 parking lot & exterior could use some work, like resurfacing, maybe a good power wash. On the other hand, staff was nice and friendly. Common areas had newer furniture.

"Great location"
The location of this hotel is wonderful. The hotel lobby and common areas are very nice. The rooms need updating! The photos shown were not the room we stayed in for 2 days. However, for our purpose staying here worked out well for us. We needed a place to sleep and it did serve that purpose. It looks like there is some type of renovation going on outside of the hotel. It is a perfect place if you have someone in St. Vincent's Hospital. It literally is next door and you don't have to drive there. Also located near restaurants, etc.

"Hotel near surgery center"
Was looking for a hotel near surgery center and happened upon this place. It is a huge place, and looks abandoned, but it was clean and the beds were comfortable. The hallways were extremely long...bringing to mind the many zombie movies I have seen..lol..but there was no fear of needing security. There were few other guests, PLENTY of privacy. I can't give it an A-1 rating, but it was comfortable enough and only $90.

Hotel needs some major upgrades. One of the rooms was very smelly and somewhat unclean. When reported to the staff they just apologized. I asked for another room and was told none were available. I returned a short time later and as I was passing by the desk the girl said oh yes we have a room available to another customer. I can't say whether the person had a reservation or not I just assumed she did not

There was no internet access, either in the room or in the lobby. No free breakfast, there was a restaurant on site. There was a large indoor pool and a place to sit or sun outdoors. The exercise room was good. There was only one person working the front desk at 9 am, which I would think would be the prime check-out time. There was a refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker in the room.
