The city of Indianapolis is known as the “Crossroads of America.” Visitors here can take in historic monument circle, browse four stories of stores and restaurants and catch a movie at Circle Centre Mall and see the Indianapolis Colts play at Lucas Oil stadium. Whether visiting for business or pleasure, you can find a convenient motel just minutes from the city center.

The majority of the north side's motels, such as the Microtel Inn Indianapolis, include complimentary wireless Internet access and a continental breakfast among their amenities. The Super 8 Indianapolis College Park provides guests with passes to a nearby fitness center, and Best Western Castleton Inn has a fitness room onsite. Both feature outdoor pools for additional fun in the summer.
