...Just really hard to find
So...I found it online in a last ditch move to go to the Democratic
Convention last June....I waited til the last minute and my rez for the Airbnb downtown went to someone else...dang !
Shadeland sounded like a beautiful place near a northern section of Indy that I was familiar with....not !
Shadeland itself is a highly industrialized section of Indy that is however only about 15 minutes from downtown by freeway....and close to very wealthy shopping and residential sections of Indy if you arent afraid to move around by car....some parts are a bit scary
The Inn is a mixed bag of mostly poorer visitors...staying there with various problems that are very evident....if you are a scardy cat...dont go there....I stayed in one of the rooms in the front of the Inn....highly recommended....I was not afraid of the other guests coming and going, who on the surface, looked like 'gangsters and druggies'...many were visiting family from other states and could only afford Shadeland ...my room was large...big screen tv...refridg..bath..bed and clean....no bugs!
I arrived at midnight and decided to stick it out....inside...there is a big abandoned atrium with and abandoned pool....still nice but not usable...there is a glass enclosed restaurant attached that is also closed...so one time...it was the coolest
The front desk is Plexiglas enclosed lol omg but the Indian family owners are very kind to their guests, who I actually got to meet over 5 days...and I was actually glad I stayed...really....
If you are the luxury seeking type...no way...but if you want to save money and have a sense of humor.....stay in the front rooms...but go for it.....then spend the money you saved on horribly overpriced Indy hotels on a lovely restaurant not far from the Shadeland Inn.....ok
