Beautiful, Historic B&B

As soon as I walked in through the front doors, I was welcomed by two very kind receptionists, one of which showed me around the entire hotel. The architecture was incredible; the place was built in the very early 1900s and was inspired by a villa in Italy. The room I stayed in, Stanza One, was beautiful and comfortable. I was amazed by the amenities offered, like a free snack bar that had coffee, tea, and an assortment of bags of chips. The private bathroom had a jacuzzi as well, which is a nice touch to a relaxing hotel such as this. The breakfast offered, broccoli quiche, was wonderful and there was an array of fruits, pastries, and drinks to choose from. None of these aspects would matter, however, if the staff wasn't as wonderfully kind as they were. From the very first entrance, I felt welcomed. The entire staff was sociable, warm, and seemed to actually love their jobs. When I decided to watch a movie in my room, I was even brought free popcorn by a staff member! I will definitely be going back whenever I am staying in the Indianapolis area.

How very kind of you to compliment our inn. I couldn't have selected more perfect words if I had written it myself! We will let the staff know of your remarks.

Do not stay at this place. The pictures make it seem nicer than what it is, it was like a hostel. Rooms are very small the bathroom had a roll away wall which had a water heater and what looked like a basement room. You could hear the next room over like they were in bed with you. The bed was very comfortable but shaky as heck and loud when you would ever roll over. The hotel staff kept me waiting for 15 minutes while they "did stuff on the computer" and were indifferent about the situation. The owner threatened me with slander if I gave her bad reviews.

We find it very unfortunate that this guest selected their own room on-line admitted; to us that the photos look exactly like the room they reserved and they are now 'fishing' to get something for free. This guest selected our least expensive budget-friendly room of their own accord. Upon arrival, they wanted a free upgrade to a high end suite with jetted tub in the bath. These rooms are $150 more per night than what the guest reserved. We offer a wide range of accommodations to meet every budget. However, we did offer an upgrade for ONLY $30/night which the guest declined. Since the guest would have had the use of 2 rooms, we thought this a very fair offer. Yes, there is a water heater to supply our guestrooms in a closet behind louvered doors and decorative fabric sliding walls. We are a bed and breakfast inn operating in an historic building and utilities are where they are. The guest actually threatened us with bad reviews in an effort to bully us into receiving his money back. We offered alternatives to the guest but all attempts to make them happy were declined.

Villa inn

charming, but definitely dated and room wasn't very clean. Toilet clogs, jets didn't work in tub that I purposely picked room for, bath mat was dirty, hair various parts of bathroom. Bed was old and not comfy. Male receptionist acted like I was inconveniencing him when I had questions. Breakfast was amazing though. Different place to stay but definitely not worth price.
