Extended Stay America - Indianapolis - Northwest - I-465

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I stayed in a queen suite. The decor was very nice, room was smaller than the other Extended Stays but still nice. Staff was nice. I really can’t say anything bad about my stay. Now the hotel is right off the highway and is surrounded by plenty of restaurants

I have stayed at this hotel on business 5 or 6 times and have always had a positive experience. I generally stay 4 days at a time. It is nice to find a recently remodeled room that is clean and quiet with no surprises at the end of a long day.

I just spent a couple of days here and it a good experience. Room with full kitchen (tip: you have to ask for the utensils at front desk when you check in, if you need them) and comfortable bed. Only problem was the heating system. It was not working as it should. I set it to the warmest and I was still cold the entire time. Other than that, it’s a great stay.

My wife and I recently spent a Saturday night at the Extended Stay America Northwest on Waldemar Road when on a visit to Indianapolis. It’s located about 25 minutes northwest of the city center. Due to Big Ten football playoffs that weekend, available rooms were scarce, hence why were so far from downtown. This was not a problem since the hotel is near I-465, an easy link to the city. Honestly, we picked this location solely on price. It was booked on Travelocity and set us back $87.74 with tax. The hotel is located right off Michigan Road, a main drag chockablock with stores and chain restaurants. The hotel is fairly neutrally decorated and was clean. The lobby was small-ish, but serviceable. Ice water and a plate of sandwich cookies were set out. Check in staff were courteous. The hotel does not serve the usual Continental breakfast, but there is a side room off the lobby where free coffee is available at certain times in the morning. Packets of instant oatmeal were also available. A Grab ‘n Go breakfast is advertised, but we never asked about it. There is a seasonal outdoor swimming pool and apparently an exercise room, neither of which we used. Being our first stay in an extended stay hotel, we didn’t know what to expect. I think we got one of the smallest rooms available. Think of a regular hotel room with a full kitchen taking up about a third of it, the queen-sized (?) bed another third and the bathroom/closet the last third. It makes for one cramped space. Okay for one night, but it might be problematical for an extended stay. We kept on bumping into the TV cabinet on the way to the bathroom. The bed was comfortable, but only came with three pillows. (We didn’t bother asking for more.). Both of us were awakened during the night by the sounds of the heater and the refrigerator kicking in. The sink is in the “closet” which you walk through to get to the toilet & tub shower. There was a hair dryer and iron/ ironing board. One minor irritation: no hangers in the closet. There is a recliner - look for the lever between the cushion and right arm. But if it’s extended, it effectively blocks anyone else from moving throughout the room. There were basic toiletries and towels. Water pressure in the shower was okay. The kitchen had a table with two chairs, fridge, microwave, two-burner electric range and dishwasher. You have to ask the front desk for any kitchen appliances, utensils and accessories. One thing that was a concern. Apparently you need your room key to get in the lobby after 11pm. We returned to the hotel a little before 11pm and the doors were still open and there was no one at the front desk. Hopefully this was an isolated instance. All in all, the room served its purpose. But truth be told, we’ll probably look for a regular hotel room for our next out-of-town trip.

Our one bedroom suite was pretty, but had an open layout, rather than a separate bedroom. The hotel did not provide clear photos of the rooms, so I took a leap of faith and assumed a one bedroom suite actually included a separate bedroom within the suite and this was a disappointment. The housekeeper did not wipe off the table in the kitchenette and it still had coffee stains from the previous tenant. Gross! There was no ice machine in the facility and the front desk responded that we were provided ice trays in our freezer. Not very useful when you have to wait hours for the ice to freeze and you need ice immediately! There was no bedding for the pull out bed in our room. I called front desk and let them know and was told I should have received them at check in, but I could come down and get what I needed. In other words, they are unwilling to bring it to you. I was already in my pajamas when I made the call, so it was a little irritating to have to march downstairs to get something I should have already been provided. We didn't expect much from "continental breakfast" as you typically just see muffins/toast, coffee/tea/juice and maybe some yogurt. The hotel didn't provide juice, which seemed a little stingy. I had purchased some frozen breakfast burritos the night before, as my group was in town for an athletic event and needed something more substantial than muffins. I would have purchased juice if I had known the hotel wouldn't provide any. I do have to disagree with other reviewers about the water pressure. It was fine. The hotel really wasn't worth the money we spent and we have already located a more suitable hotel for the next trip too the area.

Water pressure is poor. Breakfast is a very sad joke. It’s not breakfast. Next to nothing to eat. Sign above tiny muffins said that because of “scarcity” only one muffin was permitted. Several door handles were sticky. Room was spacious and clean. Counter service was kind. Quiet. So, some good qualities overall, and some room for improvement. A little more attention to detail, and a little less stinginess.

I decided to stay at this place during the busy season in July since it was closer to work. It was nice to have extra features like the refrigerator and a swimming pool that was not crowded! I never tried the breakfast since I was out the door before the coffee was brewing. It was a good experience and I will consider this place in December, as well as to check out their other locations when I am out of town.

This hotel is well located in the I465 area of Northwest Indianapolis. The area is highly congested with hotels and every restaurant imaginable as well as stores and loads of traffic. This being said, the hotel was set behind the Cracker Barrel and was actually quiet. The lobby was clean and the hotel was presentable and looked like new. We were originally placed in a room that was clean but ridiculous. The entire room (226) was about 15x12 and within this space was a kitchen, a bed, an end table, a kitchen/dining table, a recliner chair, a vanity area and a RIDICULOUS 3 level shelf that took up a ton of floor space between the bed and chair. It had a lamp that was shoved into it like a total fire hazard. The room literally resembled a storage unit. Oh, and the bed was awful. Needless to say, we went to the front desk and had to upgrade. The next room was very spacious with 1/2 the furniture but also big enough to have a couch. Once again, this room was VERY clean but the beds were VERY uncomfortable. Creaky with every move and couldn't get comfortable. The only other complaint I have, which is probably my biggest, was that this hotel has the single worst water pressure I've ever had at a hotel. Seriously. Awful. So, in summary, the hotel has awful water pressure and uncomfortable beds but is clean and well located. We didn't use the pool but it looked nice if you are interested in an outdoor pool with your stay.

I will never stay at this hotel again. The general manager is the rudest most unprofessional woman I have ever met. My wife simply wanted to know something as simple as what was the corporates number and instead of the GM giving it to her to probably ease the situation which we were obviously in or we would not have been asking for that number in the first place. She tells my wife that she will not give her the number and that if my wife wants corporate number that we would have to look it up on Google ourself! That is very unprofessional and I will never stay here again on top of them trying to kick us out because we told them that she should be fired and she immediately kicked us off the property which is completely wrong

It met most of my needs. The room was spacious enough although they did not have enough pots pans or cooking utensils and we had to purchase our own. Other than that the room was fine. The pool was clean giving the grandkids something to do when we returned to the hotel at the end of the day.
