My wife and I stayed here to celebrate her graduating from college. We first arrived and we had to wait outside for 15 minutes before we were let in. We stayed in the Lilly Room. The room was beautiful but we had no hot water until after 11:00pm. I called downstairs and we were told that because of the high...

We are sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your stay. We checked the drain situation after your departure (as we were not allowed into the room during your stay) and the flange on the drain was simply flipped up. It holds water and works well. Again we are sorry this happened and we could have remedied it on the...

We stayed at Stone Soup to celebrate our wedding. We had stayed at bed and breakfasts in the past and loved them. We arrived about 8:30 (I informed them previously of our late arrival time, and was told it wasn't a problem). The person that greeted us seemed put out that he had to let us in and take us...

We will look into all of these issues immediately. Our apologies if anything wasn't up to standards. Please email us directly with the dates of your stay if possible.

We stayed at Stone Soup excited about the Inn based on the pics and info we had about the Inn. We arrived late but called ahead and was told there would be a key in a lock box. There were two of us and someone took our key so we had to stand outside awhile. I'm ok with older accommodations...

Thank you for providing us with feedback on your stay. We welcome the opportunity to improve our services and/or explain better how Bed and Breakfasts operate. Our innkeepers do retire for the evening between 10-11pm. We are happy to accommodate late arrivals and do utilize a lockbox to provide a secure transfer of a key to access the building and...

We arrived at Stone Soup Inn at 1:00 p.m. when we were to be met by someone. After 10 - 15 minutes, we called the emergency number on the door and someone from Looking Glass Inn came over. He let us in the house which smelled musty and was extremely cold. After showing us a few rooms, he took us...

We are saddened to see a negative review regarding the Stone Soup Inn as we went out of our way to accommodate this guest - even opening an inn that was closed for the holidays to make them satisfied. The guest did reserve the Carriage House at the Stone Soup Inn. We do not make selections for our guests -...

Since a lot of Indianapolis Hotels were full, we stayed at Stone Soup for a weekend. In many ways we were pleasantly surprise - nice reading room space, pleasant dining room and a nice breakfast. Our room, the Lily had a comfortable Queen sized bed and a nice, large, well lit bathroom. Our only problem (why I gave 4 instead...

Accommodations. Location. Service. For me, the three most important aspects of my stay anywhere. At Stone Soup, all were top notch. Clean rooms with a warm decor. The location in a friendly neighborhood yet walking distance of downtown Indy. And a welcoming staff that was attentive and helpful with suggestions of things to do and see. Have already recommended to...

First, let me tell you about the positives... the location is outstanding in a neighborhood close to downtown, with nice tree shaded sidewalks if you like to walk. The staff was all very friendly and tried to be helpful. The food was excellent one morning and not edible the next morning (blueberry pancakes served which were uncooked in the middle...

We are sorry to have disappointed. We have had thousands of guests stay in our Lofts over the 20 years we have been open and they have loved them. We do understand that not all guests have the same taste and a more traditional room is a better fit for some. All of our Lofts do have queen size beds...

DO NOT STAY HERE. Seriously. HORRIBLE customer service!!! I booked a room and they claimed that their 'booking app' booked me for the week following my intended stay.

The Stone Soup Inn doesn't have a 'booking app', we do have a booking engine on our website that is completely controlled by the guest reserving a room on-line. Our guests select a room, dates and any extra amenities they desire. We are then sent an email with the guests' request. We then confirm via email the room and dates....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We look to welcome new visitors to our city and have created a warm, friendly environment - a home away from home - where travelers can relax by a fire, share their experiences and sleep in comfort. Located in the heart of the historic Old Northside, the Stone Soup Inn offers all the beauty and comfort of an upscale turn of the century home. After stepping into the large foyer, relax by the baby grand piano in the living room or cuddle up with a good book in our library. All of these rooms contain beautifully detailed woodwork and hardwood floors. Breakfast will be served in our distinctive dining room or, weather permitting, on the large, wraparound porch. On the second floor, share stories with other guests in the sitting room or outside on the spacious balcony overlooking the front garden and Lilly pond. Decorated with a combination of Mission-style and Victorian-era antiques, guests will find a comfortable, convenient place to stay as they explore nearby historic sites and downtown attractions. ... more   less
