Back in December I had a crazy work shift where I basically was working way outside of my normal shift plus I had 2 shifts only 12 hours apart. I decided to make things easier on myself and book a room at a nearby property so I could just go and crash right after I got off and would not...

Hi Jill, I'm glad to know that my team took time to recognize your IHG status and upgrade you. We love all our guests, but IHG Rewards Club members have a special place in our hearts. Also, thank you for letting us know about the beds. I will work with our maintenance chief to make sure that issue is addressed.

Holiday Inn Express is usually my family's go to for decently priced, clean accommodations. You typically can't go wrong with this chain. This particular hotel seemed to be a bit more dated than others we have stayed at, but still a great value. We did a package deal and also received tickets to the zoo and children's museum, so for...

Hi Desiree, Thank you so much for bringing your family to stay with us. Our Family Fun Package with the tickets to the Children's Museum of Indianapolis and the Indianapolis Zoo is very popular. I've shared your comments with our staff. We hope to see you again.

We decided to take a spontaneous trip to Indy to visit the Children's Museum. It was a last minute thing and as usual I used hotwire. The price was wonderful- for what we paid ($107 for 2 nights), it was more than adequate. I prefer staying in a nicer hotel but this was just fine. The bad-I don't know much...

Everyone was accommodating and professional.Check in and check out was made stress free thanks to the attentive front desk staff. Loved the room size and its amenities. The bathroom was clean and the shower had nice pressure and stayed hot. I would highly recommend it here.

We stayed here last weekend as a family member made a visit to the University of Indianapolis. In prior trips to Indy we would stay in Plainfield, west of downtown. But this property is a great place to stay for downtown Indy. Just enough away from downtown to be out of the hustle and bustle, but close enough to be...

The Holiday Inn Express in south Indianapolis is a definite "YES" for business travel. Conveniently located on East Street it is an easy drive into downtown Indianapolis. Plenty of places to eat within a one-mile radius of the hotel. On entering the main entrance the reception area is to the right. Staffed by friendly and helpful people, the check in...

After arriving I was greeted by one of the nicest people I have dealt with at any hotel ever. Check in was quick and easy. There was a mix up with my room but they were quick to fix it with out hesitation. I had to be up early for an important event in the morning. They went out of...

The staff at the Holiday Inn Express Indianapolis South were wonderful. They were very helpful, especially when it came to the continental breakfast in the morning. The indoor pool was also remarkably clean. Easily one of the better quality hotel pools around. The shower pressure in the room was strong, and the tub itself was spotless. I would recommend this...

Such a clean, comfortable room and bed too. Love the extra pillows. Fridge and microwave are convenient. The bathroom is very clean, roomy, and spacious. I felt very relaxed in this room. Super friendly and great staff. Will come back next year!

This hotel was fabulous! Big, comfy bed and spacious room. My room was particularly cool because I had a jacuzzi tub in addition to my shower. The staff was so nice and accommodating to my late check out. I'll definitely be back!
