Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GK1969 Clean, comfortable bed, good service, but lots of noise between floors.
I will stay here again as long as I am on the third floor.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SweetiePie73 Attentive and courteous staff
The speed and accuracy of checking into and out was great. The staff even reminded me that I had left my pillow behind in the room when I was checking out. If there was anything that needed to be attended to the staff was on top of it. I couldn't ask for a better, friendlier staff.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by case172 Friendly staff, very comfortable and clean room, and hot breakfast...mmm.
We usually are not disappointed with Holiday Inn Express motels. And we weren't with this one. The front desk was friendly, courteous, and helpful.
The room was very clean and spacious. The large screen LCD TV was also appreciated.
The hot breakfast: excellent variety and delicious. We appreciated it when the staff opened up an adjoining room to the breakfast area to accommodate a large breakfast crowd. It enabled us to find a table to eat!
As others have reported, the noise from the room directly above us was very noticeable. We could hear the upstairs guests walk across the floor, run water and shower. There must not be much sound deadening material between floors. However, it wasn't bad since they went to bed early as we did, so we still had a good night's sleep.
Overall, a good value.

Good overall except for the lack of heavy curtains to block out the bright light coming into my room from the rear parking lot

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TW2014 Carmel Holiday Inn Express
Clean new hotel with great staff. We will probably make this a regular stop as we travel to see family in the coming years. It is conveniently 1/2 way on our trip and close enough to Indy to site see there without being right in the city.

HIE continues to be my favorite. Of course, having a maxxed out rewards card does not hurt. I do enjoy the recognition of my status and even without that, I always feel welcome at HIE.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by laura333 Perfect for weekend getaway
My family stayed here for one night for a weekend getaway. The accommodations were exactly what we needed. The hotel was very clean and well maintained. The staff was helpful and friendly. The continental breakfast was more than we expected. Will definately stay at another Holiday Inn Express for future travel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TJ5678 week long stay
Check in was quick and easy-we'd had the reservation for nearly a year and had stayed at this particular hotel when it was with another chain. Lobby was updated, nice and clean. We left early in the mornings about a half hour before breakfast hours, but there were mornings that the staff was already preparing things and we took advantage of what was available. Mostly, they were very friendly-only one tried to remind me that breakfast doesn't start for another half hour. My only complaint about the room was that the exterior door squeaked terribly and the interior door to the bedroom didn't close until you lifted on the handle (top hinge screws were loose.) I asked a gentleman at the desk one evening if he could get those things fixed while we were away the next day. He made a note, but it didn't happen. The next day, I asked Lori, the desk clerk, if I could borrow a Philips screwdriver and a can of WD40. I explained why I wanted them and she got them for me. I was able to quiet the squeaky door, and I tightened the screws a bit on the top hinge of the inner door, but they were too short (1") and stripped. It helped but they need to be replaced with longer ones. (I worked building maintenance for 4 years.) I told Lori what I accomplished and she gave us a partial credit on our bill and 500 points on our frequent lodging account. I also forgot something in the room and called the day after we checked out to see if it had turned up. Lori was going to check on it and get back to me. Still waiting on that one. It's not a valuable item, but it does mean something to me. When I called today, (3 days after check out), the desk person checked lost and found, but nothing like it was there. The stay was fine. The room was comfortable and clean. Housekeeping was a bit slow although I believe they were full for most of the time we were there so they were always busy. One day, we returned around 3pm and the room hadn't been touched yet. We asked for clean towels-got them quickly, and emptied the garbage. That's all we want done when we stay for less than a week. Housekeeping is typically overworked and under paid. Even though we were on the front side of the building, the road noise was minimal and we were able to sleep fine. Bath and body works stuff in the loo also. Clean, quiet, nice staff (especially Lori) and a decent price-had the government rate. If we have business in Indy again, we will definitely look at staying here.

We were in Indianapolis for 4 days for the Brickyard 400. We stayed Holiday Inn Express North. We found everything perfect from the location to the room the staff the price and the indoor pool and hot tub. The service was great and the bed was very comfortable. Thanks for a great weekend.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Msnet04 Unhappy with hotel booking
I was part of a Family Reunion planning committee, and was given group code EG2, which was to guarantee 15 King Suite - Non Smoking with pull out Sofa, refrigerator and microwave. I called made reservation and confirmed that I indeed had booked the above. Upon checking in and going to our room, low and behold we ended up with a king bed/Handicapped room. Very disappointed, I went down to front desk and was told that since we didn't book directly with Carmel that the only other option was a queen room with hot tub. That wasn't what I wanted so we made the best of the handicapped room. The closet was half the size of a regular closet and we could not hang up our clothes. I booked out hotel room on 06/08/2014 and received confirmation with King Suite Nonsmoking. My husband and I was very unhappy with the room; however, we had to make the best of a bad situation.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MM465 Not bad if you like wet carpeting and the smell of fried chicken
The hotel looks nice, but looks are deceiving. We weren't staying long, just needed a place to sleep. Brushed off the fact that when we checked in, our room smelled like fried chicken and felt.... damp. Carpet was damp. The next morning realized that the carpet wasn't just damp, it was soaking wet. Neatly folded towels on the rack? Soaking wet. Neatly hanging over the bathtub edge was the bathmat - also soaking wet. Not discovered until one of us already showered and had to paw through the stack to find a semi-dry one. A trip to the front desk for dry towels didn't get much attention from the staff. Perhaps this is a common problem?
Overall, this was a really disappointing stay at a hotel chain that can usually be counted on for a good experience. At least the beds were comfortable and the cinnamon rolls were plentiful.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wellrestedandhappy A very pleasant experience!
I stayed for one night and the front desk staff was very responsive to my needs. My room was clean upon arrival and check in was efficient. I especially enjoyed the breakfast.. it wasn't too crowded while I was eating, there were plenty of options and the attendant was friendly. I felt comfortable in this hotel and am very pleased with my experience. Thank you all for the great hospitality!

Good location with many shopping and dining choices within walking distance. Good breakfast but seating was limited. Needed new batteries for the remote and bedding for the pull-out couch but all were provided upon request. Will choose this location again if in the area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Denfam4 Quiet and Off the Beaten Path
This hotel looks to be less than a couple of years old and as such has nothing on either side of it. It is close to shopping and restaurants but distant enough that you are insured a good nights sleep. Its in a nice part of Indy so safety is good to. I go to Indy several times a year and plan to stay here again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Excellent Rooms
The front desk staff was great, very attentive & helpful. We arrived at the hotel after a very long day on our motorcycle, so we were looking for a comfortable & clean place to lay our heads & find something to eat. The staff was helpful in pointing us to some places to eat & where we could park our motorcycle so it would be safe. My only complaint was in the morning at the breakfast. I have been to a lot of Holiday Inn's & I have to say this breakfast bar was the worst I've ever been to, they were out of everything, bacon, potatoes, no fruit etc.the pancake maker would not work, when I asked the lady that fills everything about the pancake maker & about the other products that were out, she snapped at me & was very rude. I could understand if we went there late but i't was only 8 am. If it wasn't for the breakfast experience everything else was great.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ronjv Good location and good value.
Visiting relatives and stayed for 3 nights. Liked it that we came back the following weekend again.
Only reason I did not give it a Excellent rating for breakfast choices is because it was crowed and food was OK.
Would recommend to anyone to stay here. Great location. Easy to get around town. One block from Interstate.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Nish13 Average at best
Front dest staff was not friendly and rude. Attempted to check in but computer systems were down so we had to wait and wait and wait. Elevator was broke down and I was stuck on it for 20 minutes. No one appoligized at all or even tried to make it up. Food was not that appealing so I preferred to eat out. This is the second time staying at a Holiday Inn, I don't think I will try it a third time. Not worth the money.
