This is the first time we have ever tried an Expedia unpublished-rate hotel. We needed an economical rate because on this occasion we had to book two rooms for four nights. For what we paid ($55 per room per night plus tax), it was entirely worth it. However, I wouldn't pay more to stay here. It was clean, and the staff was very conscientious. The rooms are "tired" and in need of an update, especially the bathrooms. Water pressure was poor - the toilet needed to be flushed several times after each use. (The maintenance visit we requested never materialized.) When we first arrived in the room, the air temp was set to a chilly 61 degrees. But we found out why - whenever we set it lower, all surfaces became damp. Humidity is a problem.
The staff was extremely friendly, and the room was very clean. I really liked everything about this hotel, but my one gripe, if I had to have one, would be that you don't get free WiFi unless you're part of a rewards program or something like that.
From check-in to check-out this was one of the best experiences we have had traveling. All of the staff from front deck to housekeeping to hostess at breakfast were kind, concerned for our comfort and friendly. I so enjoyed the full breakfast with all of the choices, I loved the comfortable atmosphere and the room was set up so well. I will be making my reservations there for next year when we return for the 100 Indy race. Thank you and God Bless
I have been staying at this hotel since 1998. This was and always has been our go to hotel. This is the first time that we have been disappointed in the hotel. The pool area was not as clean as usual. The area by the mechanics for the pool needed to be painted and there were wasps around the area.
The room needed to be updated and there were areas that needed to be dusted such as the walls and in the doorway areas.
Room was beyond my expectations. Bed was VERY comfortable. No hallway noise at night. Breakfast was ok - nothing outstanding. Very courteous staff!!!! We stayed 3 nights and would definitely stay there again!!!

I was in Indiana for a two day concert event in Noblesville, IN and was looking at a nice but cheaper place to stay near the venue. This Red Roof Inn was decently priced but the cleanliness of the room was questionable. When we got to our room we noticed there was only one garbage can (none in the bathroom) in the place and water was on the ground next to the toilet and bathtub. The sheets on one bed were noticeably stained and there was no hair dryer in our room either. When we called for a hair dryer we were told when one came up they would call us, which never happened.
The staff was very nice and friendly and answered all our questions. The beds in our room were very comfortable too and the air conditioning was nice.
