"Nice, but not fancy"
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.

The front desk service was terrible, the room smelled, and the beds were so uncomfortable. Next time I will pay more to stay somewhere else.

"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.

The best part of this hotel is. That the front desk staff were so helpful and friendly. While the hotel room was clean and provides everything that a hotel room should (bed, bathroom,etc) the room was definitely outdated.

"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.

"Same as many reviews"
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

"Adequate"
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.

"Marten House review"
The hotel was older, but maintained fairly well. The complaint we had was with the bathroom. Only one bar of soap, so you had to keep moving it back and forth from the shower to the sink. The biggest complaint was the the shower. The shower head must have been clogged with some buildup, because the water pressure out of it only sent the water put about a foot and a half making it very difficult the rinse off. The staff was excellant. The location of the hotel was excellant, very close to our medical appointment.

Stayed last two years for Indy 500 week. Even got same room. Wanted to book for next year but web site says "not available. Stay some place else", so I booked some place else for 2014. If we like that it will be "some place" else from now on.

The Marten Hotel staff was most helpful.Check-in was quick,including a room change due to handicap reasons.Extra pillows were brought quickly and a wake-up call done within 5 minutes of the asked for time.Now the minus points.The décor is in need of refreshing,but was kept clean.The parking lot is in dire need of repaving.Drive carefully around the potholes.All told,we found our stay to be most pleasant and recommend Marten Hotel for your consideration.

"An adequate, good, deal"
Staff were friendly and helpful; the bed very comfy; the pool, while small, was very pleasant. The facility was dated and on the verge of needing an overhaul. And, like most hotels, there was some lingering fake fragrance; good thing the windows open. But if you're looking for a clean, quiet place that's relatively cheap, this'll do ya.
