"Nice with large rooms"
A little hard to find, with the entrance on University Blvd. Although bathroom was small, room itself was larger than most. Staff was friendly and informative.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice price, fairly convenient"
I stayed here when I came to Indy for a work event at the Zoo, but I have also stayed here when attending athletic events. The hotel is only a few miles away from downtown and the zoo, Lucas Oil. It is right in the center of IU. The property condition is well-kept. The service has always been good. The valet was very quick. The food at the bar which […] is open later has always been good. The only downside is that the business center does not have color printers and the conference center was not open when I arrived or when I left in the morning.

"Great for business travel."
Great hotel for business travel with free wifi and in room fridge. It also has free shuttles to and from the Indiana Convention Center.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to downtown with bigger rooms"
The people of Indianapolis are very pleasant, particularly the staff. This is a campus hotel that they're making into a dorm. Still, the grounds are beautiful, the restaurant good & there's the benefit of a campus attention to detail. Nice spot & I'd stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel location was close to downtown, the accommodations were clean and he staff very helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"About what you would expect for price and location"
I thought it was well worth the price I got the Hotels.com. If I paid the regular price, I think I would have been okay with it because of location and overall it was a nice room. It did not have enough functioning plug outlets, would be my main complaint. I have lots of "devices", well three. Cell phone, tablet, and laptop. You would think the room […] would accommodate that.

"very comfortable for anyone"
Everything about our stay was wonderful & I would definitely stay again. The only drawback was the parking charge. We didn't know about it, as well as the size of our room & bed and what accommodations we would get until we arrived.Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel stay, room, property, staff, very enjoyable. Room service burger and next day breakfast, food, fair at best. Sports bar staff attentivness was also fair, but had a few local beers on draft, that were quite impressive. Complimentary hotel shuttle to local destinations, was a nice touch. Valet manager, could not be more accomidating, with Indy facts, […] he was awesome! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Very clean, great guest relations. Everything went well and the location was perfect. Would suggest to friends or family to stay here, especially for the price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Would not go back due to the musty smell"
The room smelled very musty. Would not go back due to this. It was bad. The shuttle service was great! I did not Like having to pay for parking at the hotelGenuine Expedia guest review
"Quiet for meditation"
Cool. The environment particularly the well kept garden is pleasant.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to downtown"
Really appreciated the free shuttle to downtown areas. Even though we visited during a really busy time, with GEN-CON and MOTO-GP in town we never had to wait too long for the shuttle. Only wished the hotel had taken care of the empty water in the vending machines, still empty after 2 days.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Spacious, clean room, everything seemed near new. Free shuttle to and from downtown was really handy. Its a good location if you are going back and forth from the racetrack, hotel and downtown.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"It was the right place at the right time"
I liked the stay but they didn't provide parking which I thought was rather odd.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
""Nice and quite getaway""
the hotel and the stay was great. location fair. very weird smell in the lobby. Smelled like a hospital.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Ok but we won't stay again"
We had a late check in. The staff was helpful but did not go out of there way to be helpful.I know this is a college area and expected some noise but they were running up and down the hall yelling until three am.Genuine Expedia guest review
Lobby smelled musty like they had a recent water problem. Room was good though. Could have been more clean. Found cereal remnants on the floor. Definitely not a 4 star hotel, but I would rate it worthy of a 3.5 due to the comfort of the beds.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, great shuttle, and great room! :)"
All in all, it was a very clean, and convienent hotel to stay at, the only downfall is that check in is not until 4...while I know that is a pretty standard time to check in, when you need to get to events downtown, it is not very convienent. We were told that are room would be ready at 4, and that meant that we had to get behind everyone else in line […] who was also going to be checking in. we did go on a very eventful weekend in indy, but again, i think that extra staff should be hired and all rooms should be ready by 3 pm even if check in is at 4, that way there is no rushing!

It was very good stay at the hotel. The hotel has a very good room and service. However, the surrounding was not very functional ; no stores, ATM or even ppl. In general, the hotel stay was very pleasant for a student who is going to attend the university their.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good hotel, but closing soon"
The staff was very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The hotel was very clean and close to downtown. It's on the campus of IUPUI, which was ideal as we were in town so my daughter could visit the Herron Art School. The only thing I didn't like was the $18 fee to self park the car in their garage -- very unnecessary. I was able to park in a garage […] a block or so away, and the art school was going to validate my parking. That was somewhat inconvenient, since I've stayed at other downtown hotels that didn't charge for parking. Also, I learned from friends and family in the Indy area who told me the hotel is going to be closed in November and will be converted to freshman student housing for IUPUI. The adviser at the art school confirmed that as well. I didn't eat at the hotel restaurant so I can't comment on the food. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I felt that for the price I paid, a breakfast should have been included. I feel the room should have been accommodated by two queen beds, not two full size beds. The staff was wonderful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Would stay here again"
very nice hotel, clean and frendly staffGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It was good. The staff was excellent - especially the valet parkers! So friendly with great service. Wish breakfast was included in the stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Right on Indiana university campus"
Wow I definitely did not know what to expect as I never stayed here before. It was just a hop skip and jump to downtown and extremely close to my favorite bar and restaurants. It was very tricky at first trying to find where I had to park but the valet was very helpful on showing me where I had to go. The restaurant had some high tech desktop computers […] that I fully took advantage of. They also have an on site bar and restaurant and a small cafe that would give Starbucks a run for their money. The bed was comfortable and it was very quiet since school was not in session. The hotel is just a few blocks away from local fast food chains right on campus. Overall I would stay here again. The only drawback was that if you want friends or family to come see you there is no where for them to park. There is no convenient street parking. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenience of staying in event location"
I felt the accommodations were very nice. It is very disagreeable to me that I should have to pay separately to park my car. I also feel breakfast should be included.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is a good value. Although away from downtown, the courtesy shuttle was nice. The view of downtown was great. My only complaint was that our ice bucket had about an inch of water in it when we opened it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean, comfortable and worth your consideration"
Very clean rooms, shuttle service to downtown was very convenient; drivers very knowledgeable and friendly, especially "Miss V" who was a great source of information.Genuine Expedia guest review
Staff very helpful. Main shuttle vehicle broke and smaller substitute vehcile caused long wait time.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice place to stay"
There were a few things broken in my room. Nothing that really bothered me. Tub stopper in bathtub was comepletely off. Small mirror in bathroom was loose and falling off the wall. And a few of the clips for drapes and shower curtain were broken. It is a very nice looking hotel. I love the art and decorations around the lobby. Bed was VERY comfortable […] and the blackout drapes were nice. Overall I had a pleasant experience. The young man working the booth in the parking garage however was rude and I did not enjoy the fact of having to pay $18 to park my car for less than 12 hours. Especially considering the shuttle only runs until 11pm. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"On IUPUI campus"
Parking fees are too high: $18/day! Clean rooms, excellent service in all areas. Prices in main restaurant a little steep.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Both good and bad"
The ceiling in the bathroom was a bit moldy. The staff knocked on our door at 10am when check out was at 11am to see if we were gone yet. The bed was comfortable and the sheets were nice. Everything was pretty clean.Genuine Expedia guest review
there was no one at the front desk when I first wanted to check in. This was around 11:00 on a Friday night. Everyone was friendly who I came in contact with. I wanted to work out at the Fitness floor at 6:00 on Sat morning, but security did not have the door unlocked. I called down to the Front desk and they called security, who arrived about 10 to […] 15 minutes later. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Overall nice stay and nice price"
Room could have been cleaner--particularly the coffee mugs appeared to have just been rinsed out - not washed--also, the pillows smelled of perspiration. Aside from this, the stay was comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Downtow is within walk-in distance"
Overall, I had a pleasant and comfortable stay at this hotel. As for the amenities, the free internet service is not reliable (probably a dial-up speed), the shuttle driver does not familiar with other interesting places beside know his way to downtown (the circle/mall) only, and almost all the time there is a long queue to the front desk whenever I […] need assistance during my three days stay.

"Beware 2 beds vs 1 bed - NOT guaranteed!"
We had a bad experience that is unique to our situation, so I will not rate the hotel poorly, as it was very nice in the traditional ways. However, we booked through Expedia and thought we booked for two double beds... apparently we didn't "book" but "requested", which the hotel was not able to accommodate due to being booked. We ended up with a room […] with 1 king size bed. They also gave us a roll away (twin sized) (and did not charge the $15 for it). With four adult sized people, our youngest teenager ended up making a pillow bed and sleeping on the floor. They would not provide a second roll away due to fire code, and no rooms available to give us that would have improved our situation. (we got there at 9pm that night). Other than apologies, they agreed to waive our $18 parking fee (after we asked). Frustrating, but it worked out. Thank goodness it was a 1 night stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"More than a Campus"
My overall experience was great. It would have been more helpful if the shuttle service started before 8AM. I was in town for the NAEYC Professional Development Institute and all the workshops begin at 8.Genuine Expedia guest review
"good for price"
Not a bad place. If you're looking to be in the heart of downtown, there are much better options. If you're in town for something at IUPUI it'd be a great option. The free shuttle to restaurants was ok, but we waited 35 minutes and the driver even tried numerous times to convince a couple on out ride not to go to a restaurant on the outer edge of his […] route. It definitely was an awkward part of the stay. Parking was a little pricey with no other viable options since the hotel is surrounded by a campus. But things were clean, and staff overall was friendly. I would definitely come back under the right circumstances. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"near IU Hospital"
everything was just fine except their need to charge extra for use of the parking garage. just include it in the price of the hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Hotel, great price (on Expedia)"
The rooms were very comfortable, close to downtown, neighbors were a little noisy, but not too bad. The beds are amazingly comfortable, the radio didn't really work, but the bathroom was nice.Genuine Expedia guest review
Check In a bit rough- was told to "wait a moment" by one desk clerk who then disappeared and never returned. Other desk clerk very friendly.Other workers in Hotel friendly.Room ok but did notice some visible dirt in corners of Bathroom and tub was somewhat stained. Food in restaurant in hotel was average.Overall ok hotel stay for price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Soon to close"
Little outside of the main downtown area but has all the facilities required for a comfortable stay. Unfortunantely, closing later this year.Genuine Expedia guest review
Visiting IUPUI campus, this was an excellent location, central to campus locations and easy access for driving.Genuine Expedia guest review
Good stay but i specifically booked a room with 2 queens and upon arrival they said they only had 1 King rooms available. They said room type is not guaranteed when booked thru hotels.com. In the end they found a room with 2 queens so it all worked out.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
