This hotel is a good value with very friendly and helpful staff. Large parking lot if you are towing or have a large motor home. Very close to I 465 easy on off. I have been staying here for years when i am in the Indy area.

We stay at this hotel for the Miracle Ride each year (for the past 2 years) they sponsor the ride. We are pretty much happy with the hotel except the breakfast is very skimpy and needs definite improvement! I think it would be beneficial to put Biscuits & Gravy, maybe some sausage patties and something a little more "significant" on...

Hotel rooms were very dated. Room was pretty clean but dated. The entire place looked run down, I believe it might have been a top notch place at one time. We stayed for a conference and it served it purpose, nothing special. The food was eatable but not desirable and tasteless.

The people cleaning rooms and front office were very friendly. Check in with simple and they called us a cab upon request. The breakfast was simple, yet appropriate for the price of the room. If you want clean, this is not for you. Upon arrival there was a used, dirty pizza box in our room. Not all electrical sockets work,...

Third stay here for a yearly conference. Pleased with the updating of the rooms and common areas. But that's were it ends. Checked out my room late in the day and found stains on the bathroom floor. Housekeeping says it will not wash off. Went to adjust the air conditioner and found black mold on the drapes. Staff did replace...

For the past 21 years we have held our annual meeting at the hotel. They have nice theater seating, good meeting rooms, and swap meet rooms. Hotel is upgrading rooms and rooms each visit are getting nicer. Great value for the cost. We will be meeting for all meeting in the near future. Charles Bogart

We stayed three nights with a larger family group for a wedding. This hotel fell far short of our expectations. We've stayed at other Choice Hotels in the past and generally have been very pleased. This location is old, in need of updates, and in need of management that is involved. Our #1 issue was the breakfast. They simply were...

This is in the Choice hotel chain, most of which are average motel-style places. The Clarion is a very large facility with unexpected features that are of no value to the average guest - such as an unused theater, conference rooms, etc. It's not exactly in the middle of nowhere, but I'm not sure that it's near anything that matters...

We had reservations for 20 rooms and found this is the perfect place for our group. We plan to return annually. We found the staff great to work with. They were willing to make special arrangements for an early breakfast on the weekend.

This is the worst Choice Hotel I've ever been in. Their standards are usually pretty high but not here. This one is well-worn and in need of a lot of renovation. We did notice that during our stay the Conference Center was being worked on. Hopefully, the rest of the rooms will follow soon. We arrived late on a Monday...
