The good: Decent location. Not too far from the children's museum and zoo. Plenty of towels at the pool. Friendly reception at checkin. The bad: The hotel was a little rough around the edges. Example....the chairs in the dining area were very worn, rough floor in the elevator, the hot tub concrete tile area needs to be caulked or sealed....

As an IHG Rewards member you would expect to get the smallest of priority services. Not with this place! Desiree was rude and condescending. We were told our reserved rooms were not ready, but watched in the lobby as family after family checked in after us with a ROOM KEY.

This was my second time staying at the holiday inn express South in Indianapolis. Last time I stayed, I only stayed for a night, this time I stayed for 3 days and enjoyed the quiet and clean room.

Really enjoyed staying at this hotel. Easy to get to, exceptionally friendly staff, clean room & pool area. Bathroom was larger than I expected. Keurig coffee maker, microwave, mini-fridge. Beds & pillows were very comfortable. Pretty close to downtown Indy. Nice movie theater with IMAX only a couple of blocks away. I definitely recommend this one!

Staff was pleasant. Room, decent but dated Internet connection almost nonexistent. And HI wants the attract business travelers? 120+ night per year business traveler. HI still needs to show their stuff. Not bad for a port in a storm, but if you have options look elsewhere.

Have used this hotel several times over the past few years and have found it to be consistently very good. It's located close to the University of Indianapolis Campus so it's highly recommended for visiting parents and prospective students. It's only about 15-20 minutes from downtown Indianapolis (straight shot down main road!), so it offers a less expensive alternative than...

Clean and nice. Friendly. Had to drive 4 miles for something other than fast food or Mexican food but no big deal. Great stay. Breakfast was good. Typical hi express food. Safe parking lot. Stay here was great.
