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... More

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... More

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... More

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.... More

Stone Soup Inn is a beautiful home and B&B. With a warm welcome we were shown our room the NW Loft. The room was very nice and the loft was a very cozy place to sleep. The continental breakfast was ok. Nothing special. Overall wonderful experience and will be staying here again.

My husband and I stay in B&B's or hotels a few times a year.

I admit that the price seemed too good to be true; however, when looking for a place to stay for 5 nights, it seemed irresistible. The "lower level entrance" should have been my first clue that it's actually in the basement of the inn, but I didn't pick up on that. The inn's website explains that the Garden Suite "...offers...

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
