Just Don't!

I booked a lake view room online, I was given a room overlooking the parking lot when I tried to call the front desk the line was so crackly the I could hardly understand the lady. She said that unless I clicked a certain button online I was not guaranteed that room. I took my printout down to her and she said that the hotel was booked for the weekend and she could not do anything about it. I also explained that teenagers were blocking the stairs and running up and down the halls and that I did not want that room, I asked her to get us another hotel, she said that none were available in Indy, I said I was willing to drive to another city. She finally gave me another room of someone who had not yet arrived, overlooking the lake and away from the teenagers. I had called that afternoon to ask what time the pool would be open until and was told 11 pm. However when we checked in they said they would be closing at 10 due to the teenagers staying at the hotel. I explained that I had called and was told differently so they did keep the pool open. The ice container in the room had mold in it. The sink and bathtub would not drain, the toilet had to be flushed 3 times to go down, I lifted the sink stopper to try and get it to drain and it was full of gray slime, hair and toothpaste. Also this room did not have an alarm clock. Pool was good other than teenagers were doing cannonballs into the 3 foot end and others diving into the deep end. I was scared for my 8 year old. When we got out of the pool someone had pooped on the floor between the pool and our chairs. We did get a good night sleep but when we went down for our waffles we found that they did not have any forks. I asked and they said they were out and we had to eat our butter and syrup covered waffles with our fingers. I had asked for a partial refund but was told since I booked online that I had to talk to corporate. Front desk staff was extremely rude during all of this.

Ok place

Over all ok. Getting close to needing an overall up date. Hot tub needed cleaning bad but pool was ok. Breakfast was horrible. Room was clean & ok but could use a new TV - Pretty old. Over - all ok for the price. Food in bar was excellent.

3 Stars??

I realize that you get what you pay for. I was a bit surprised that the hotel has a 3 star rating. By who's standard? The Hotel was musty smelling and the room was somthing along the lines of a Red Roof Inn. Had I been aware of the state of that hotel I would have paid 20-30 less for the same style of caliber room. The room was in desperate need of updates. I felt as if I had jumped back to 1980 with the wallpaper border in the room with the flourecent lighting and the console TV. Staff was friendly and courteous. Could have done without the Baptist Revival Wake Up call first thing Sunday morning. If you are going to host such an event (revival) in the meeting room off the lobby and the parking lot is that empty on saturday night I feel that you could have given me a room further away from the fire and brim stone service being held in your lobby. I would not recomend this hotel to anyone.

HMMM

Well, the room wasn't very modern,V. The bed was not very comfortable. The toilet, shower, etc was not modern either. I asked for non-smoking room and got a smoking room. We didn't get our room cleaned. The front desk staff however was excellent. They were very friendly.

Two Thumbs Down

Condoms with safe sex info in a package tucked at the top of sheets next to pillows. What in the world are they thinking? Can you say "No Class?" And who would use condoms that were "issued" by someone you didn't know, and no history of the individual foil packets, (there was two different brands and one packet of personal lubricant). Let's call this place "booty call hotel" Hotel needs to be closed and have extensive remodeling done. There is no reason to have carpet that old, that smelled so badly! Also the secondary exits and entrances glass doors should be cleaned, let's say once a year. By the looks of them it had been a few years. And what does it cost to clean and some fresh paint? Lastly, the bed spread in my room (347) was badly soiled. Down right frightening! Listen I am a 46 old X-Marine and let me tell you, I have know what dirty is and sleeping in bad places are truly like, and I am well traveled so I know what's what. For a $150.00 night's stay they fell well short of offering value. Only up side was the location to the Speedway. Five minute drive.

Not so much

Hotel staff was GREAT, but don't expect anything beyond that. Filthy rooms, everything including the walls and furniture were stained. The t. paper dispenser was broken as were several lights. Cobwebs abound. It is very close the the IMS, but I will never be back.

just a couple of issues

We liked how close it was to track. We did not like the running toilet that kept us up the first 2 hours. Had to keep bathroom door closed till we left.
