Great place to stay!

The hotel is an older one, but still very nice. Doors are automatic, the lobby is spacious and guest friendly. The staff was excellent, and we had no problems checking in or out. There is a nice open staircase, or an elevator for those who don't want to climb. The refrigerator was quite nice, and the light switches glow a bit so you can find them in the dark (which could also be annoying if you are sensitive to light while trying to sleep). We didn't partake of the complimentary breakfast or any of the other amenities so I don't know how those were. This was about 18 miles north of Indianapolis. A little bit of a drive, but worth it for us.

Get what you pay for

We only stayed one night. Bed spread was dirty & likely hadn't been cleaned for awhile. There was a piece of plastic with staples in it that my husband stepped on... Which he wasn't pleased about. There were only 3 pillows on a king sized bed. TV is old!

Room smelled

I was booked for three nights but left after the first. They charged me for two nights - I told them in the morning but hey charged me anyway. No one saw at the front desk for me to check out. I was either bitten during the night or broke out in a rash due to the sheets. Hotel room was in need of refurbishment, bathroom shower rail was broken. I asked for a wake up call and did not receive one. The "breakfast" consisted of three breakfast rolls and surgary cereals.

Disappointing Stay

Staff was very pleasant, however the room was not very nice or clean. There were little bits of trash on the floor and it looked like it needed a good vacuuming. Paint was peeling in the bathroom. The bed was comfortable and clean but overall it was not a good experience.

Sucks to be you . . .

if you stay at this hotel. Hard to find. Unable to see address number. No cars in the parking lot when I arrived, very few when I left. Parking lot was heavily littered. Doors to building were accessible by anyone as they were damaged. Room carpet was so dirty it soiled my white socks within just a few minutes. The bed cover was dirty. The TV was outdated. There were cobwebs with spiders in the bathtub. The stool ran. One of the bath towels was frayed and old looking. The pool was a mess and hadn't been used in years. I could go on but you get the idea. I wouldn't stay there again if you paid the bill.

Not a Best Western

Confusing at first because the name of motel was changed. I think it's called Magnison now.The Free Breakfast was rough. Carpets and walls really needed some cleaning. Conveniently located not far from the interstate 69. We did enjoy having the microwave and small fridge in the room.

CAT LITTER ON BATHROOM FLOOR CAT HAIR EVERY WHERE! GROSS!

First the lady at the front desk told us that we had changed our room reservation to the night before and that it had been canceled. The only thing I had done is change the bed size and I had even called the hotel to varify this when I did it online and she confirmed! So "luckly" she had one room left with the bed size we wanted. Walked in. Smelled like cat litter. Cat litter in the tiles of the bathroom. Nasty accumulation of cat hair on window curtain! Cat boogers or some thing on dirty NO SCREEN window. Went down to front desk to get change for vending.....took them 20min to produce 4 quaters! Front desk lady needs to get off phone and freakin CLEAN!!! Text me and I'll send pics! :(~

Indy Super Weekend

We brought our grandson to the races, and found our hotel to be a pleasant surprise. AL though it is older, and we were disappointed that they weren't filling and using the pool these days; the beds w ere SO very comfortable and the staff helpful. We will probably stay here again., The location is great too!
