"Not up to La Quinta standards"

I stayed at the 5316 W.Southern Ave. Location.Room had a old, musty smell. I purchased Lysol and an Fabrez to kill smell of room. Found DUST built up on headboard,lamp fixtures, corners of room along with hair and other stuff. Front desk staff didn't care, would not change room even after being shown pictures. Don't advise staying.

"Comfy Beds, Gross Everywhere Else"

I am a 22-year old female. I was traveling alone this weekend and needed a cheap place to stay the night before a race right outside of Indianapolis. I couldn't justify paying over $80 just for a place just to sleep and shower, so I opted for the La Quinta. Apparently, $60 gets you a comfy bed and limited cable - cleanliness is not mandatory in that price range. Upon check-in, which was around 8:00pm. The front desk agent was quick, friendly, and helpful, though she raised a few red flags as I was checking in. She said I could park my car near 2 different back entrances, but would recommend parking it so I could see it from my window. Security concerns? As soon as I got to my room, my phone rang. It was the front desk agent again asking if I got to my room okay. It was nice of her to check on me, especially because I am a young female, traveling alone, but I would hope I could feel safe. I guess not. I always make it a point to check out the entire room before I settle in, just in case. I peeked in the closets, bathroom, and under the beds. That was probably a mistake - there was trash under both beds. In the shower, there was a dirty washcloth hanging from the shower rod (and I mean DIRTY). A few other things: the lobby smells bad, the showers are loud, there were toenails on my floor, and the walls are incredibly thin. A few good things besides the friendly and caring front desk agent that checked me in, include: good basic cable and comfy pillowtop mattresses. I was actually pretty impressed with the comfort of the beds. These are the only reasons this got any points at all. This place does the job if you're looking for something quick and cheap. Have low expectations, and you'll be just fine.

"Paper thin walls, no room fridge."

Would have been nice to get sleep at least 1 out of the 4 nights. INCREDIBLY noisy every night between 2:00 and 4:30. There is NO WAY they didn't wake up the night clerk with all that racquet. Loud conversations repeatedly by the ice machine. Running up and down the halls. Loud conversations. Things breaking. Broken something (plate? Light bulb?) on floor in the hallway at 7 AM, still there at 4 PM. Room was decent size, but no refrigerator. That is expected now. Slow draining tub, broken vanity light (they did fix that the same day), toilet BARELY flushes. Just looking very used. Forgot hand towels, no soap the first day (luckily we had our own). Friends stayed literally 2 min away at Wyndham for $50 a night (less than this!) and had gorgeous, HUGE room with full kitchen, fresh, clean, updated...... It is a great location (as are ALL the hotel properties in this area - there are lots).

"Good value, but don't expect luxury"

My wife and I stayed here for one night on a weekend in March 2014. We attended a concert downtown, but all the downtown hotel rooms were either booked or ridiculously expensive, because of another activity there, so we booked an airport hotel. This one worked out well for what we had in mind, but we are not the pickiest travelers in the world either. The price and value were very good. The environment was average -- patched plaster and thinned carpeting indicated on old hotel, but there were also signs of recent updates. The housekeeping staff must be very good, because even in a somewhat rundown building that obviously gets a lot of use, we were not able to find any signs of shortcuts or shoddiness on cleaning. Our biggest complaint was the carpet -- after walking across it a few times barefoot, the soles of my feet were turning black. We decided to wear socks the rest of the time. This is a pet peeve of mine, and it's not a housekeeping problem. It's just that vacuuming doesn't remove that ground-in dirt. Carpets must either be steam-cleaned or replaced regularly, and these were definitely not. That was the only major negative, though. Shower had lots of hot water, staff were helpful and friendly, we were not disturbed by other guests, and the TV and wifi were both very good. I can't rate the breakfast because we both decided to sleep in and missed it. I can't say that I will definitely return, but I wouldn't hesitate to book again if we were in need of a reasonably-priced room in this area. One other thing to consider -- there are actually two La Quinta Inns in the airport area, so make sure you've got the correct one. Even a reasonably smart smartphone might not find the right one.

"Great overnight stay near IND airport"

First time to stay here, I booked a room for less than $60 including tax. The room was decent and clean, seemed to have been remodeled in the past few years. It has a flat screen TV, micro fridge, coffeemaker, everything you need for a one-night stay. And the free wifi worked great. However, there was no "Do not disturb" sign in my room. I went down to the front desk and told the staff about that. The reception lady was kind though she said they don't have backups. I actually needed a "Do not disturb" sign because I was pretty exhausted after a 13 hours layover. The bathroom was outdated but relatively clean, not perfect. I found hair on the floor and bathtub. Water pressure was so good. There's nothing to explore nearby, but Jimmy John's and Waffle House are across the road. The shuttle picked up/dropped off in 15 minutes. The shuttle driver (he said he turns 80! this year) was so friendly and helpful. We had a nice little conversation in the car. Overall, I would say this airport hotel is much better than the others in the same price range (like Days Inn, Ramada, or another La Quinta etc.) This is a great place to stay for a night before/after a flight. I would stay here again.
