Verified Reviews of Best Western Plus Indianapolis Downtown

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Disappointing"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
I'm so sorry but our stay was unpleasant. The heater in our first room did not work, the fan blew but there was no heat. We were given a second room and there was no heat because the fan would not engage. We were given a third room and I found a do not disturb sign on the door knob and I found towels on the floor when I opened the door. The heat came on in the 4th and we were settled in only to find that what sounds like the fan clutch on the heater making a horrible whine and growl when the heat tries to engage the fan and while the fan is running. The staff was pleasant and tried to help but the conditions of the heating units was unacceptable and needs immediate attention. I'm here with my daughter for the cheer competition and unfortunately neither of us has slept well and tonight we finall had to turn the heat off around 3:30am because the noise was unbearable from the heater. I'm also not sure why my reservation said I would be in a room that included a sofa but there was no sofa in any of the rooms we were given. Last item of concern is that there was a dirty towel on the towel rack when we moved into our final room. There were brown stains clearly exposed and showing on the towel. I apologize for the harsh review but these words are the harsh reality of our stay this weekend.

"Good location not the best hotel for the value."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
This is an old hotel and shows its age. I believe that they may be renovating, but the rooms are small, there was no stopper for the tub and the elevator holds two people max. This was a $100/per night hotel in any other location that we spent $200/night to be closer to the competition. Location is extremely important, but it would be nice if the prices offered to families through the competition site were also based on the quality of the property and not just the location. The hotel staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The price for the hotel just seemed high for the quality of the property especially since the breakfast was of no value to our family since we competed early and had to leave the hotel before it was open.

"Rat Hotel"
Overall Score1.0/ 5
This was the worst hotel that I ever stayed in. Even the staff said it was awful. Someone room got broken into while we were there. We checked out on Sunday and stayed somewhere else clean. The manager told the lady that was making the breakfast don't pit anymore more out. Because they need it for the next day. The evaluator so nasty. I have pictures to show the filthiest of this rats inn.

"Very poor experience"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
My first and last stay with this chain. Building is in need of remodel. Seriously did not think the tiny elevator would reach my floor. Used the steps the remainder of my stay. Hotel is on the far fringe of downtown. Food choices are about five blocks away after you walk through the park full of street people scalping basketball tickets. Train tracks a block away were noisy, but the partiers on the floor below and the guest next door pounding on the walls and floor to quiet them were even worse. But the best part: it was windy, and the wind was rushing in through the air conditioner vents. The room was clean and the staff was friendly. Those two things upgraded this visit from terrible to poor. Spend the extra money for a better place while in town.

"My team and I had a great stay at the Marriot Norcross last week. I was unable to meet up with Ms Vanita and unable to passed her a box of Godiva Chocolates I bought for her. We will not even bother to seek other hotel-planning-organization after we have used your great service. You can even quote me on this. Meanwhile, we have to make 2 trips to the states every year from now onwards and will definitely use your services. Once again, thank you for making our trip a success." O.S. - Atlanta, GA
