I'm at the Super 8 in Indianapolis
Tuesday, April 26, 2005 8:19 PM
I decided that since I would be staying here during the Bash (with about five or six of my local buddies), I would check it out on my way home from Kansas. I figured I would pass on the info.

1- parking is very minimal with just about one spot for every room. If you have a trailer, you have almost no chance of parking (or even room to turn around).

2- its an outside door hotel with balconies, which, we all know leads to good stories the next day

3- no high speed internet, but the AOL dial-up is semi-fast

4- A/V inputs on the front of the TVs, so you can playback all the good movies from Friday night!

5- its located on a strip with just about every fast food, supermarket, and gas station in the world, and everything is within walking distance (Super WalMart is about 100 yds south)

6- there is some construction on the road between here and Raceway Park. I'm not sure if it will be cleaned up by July, and since it was dark, I didn't get a good look to see if it would cause problems with bagged cars, etc. I will be going to see the park tomorrow on my way out of here. I will give everyone the full scoop then.

I'll be going back I-70 to I-71 to I-90 and into MA (reverse of my route when I come back in July). I'll give a little report on road conditions after I get home.

About 3 months ago when I thought I was going to go to the bash I called and talked to the hotel. I asked about parking and trailer parking. They guy said they have plenty of parking and they also have space for trailer parking as well . . . we talking about the same hotel?

Super Motel 8
8229 US 36 East
Avon, IN 46123 US

Either way . . . since you were there you would know about it better then I would since I only talked to a guy on the phone . . .

That would be called a MOTEL, not a hotel.

mo·tel
an establishment which provides lodging and parking and in which the rooms are usually accessible from an outdoor parking area

Which Super 8 are you talking about? There are 2 . . .

Super 8
8229 East US Highway 36
Avon, IN
46123
317-272-8789


Super 8
1100 North Green Street
Brownsburg, IN

The one I was talking about was the one in Avon... also doing more research.. just so people know... the first Super 8 is about 8 miles away from all the other hotel / motels . . . .

Ok, I got home about 2am today. The construction between the hotel (or motel, whichever you prefer ) isn't bad since its actually in a lot off the road. There is two sets of train tracks to cross over, neither of which are drastic. There is also a nice car wash about 1/2 mile east of the park.

Karo- I was at the Super 8 in Brownsburg, sorry for the confusion.

girlRacer- I would have let you know, but I thought you were like an hour from there....

Kandyman- the Holiday Inn is only like 3/4 mile from the Super 8....I may just take a drive over to see you

i think construction has been going on in that part of town for around 4 years, i can't remember when it wasnt, i dont think they do anything i think they just throw some orange barrels out so it looks like their making progress.


and yeah my place will have nice parking lol.

If anyone needs any info of the surrounding areas around either super 8's Im the man to talk to. Ive live in this area all my life, so ill be happy to help.

Karo - The super 8 in Avon does have room for a Trailer, so that guy wasnt lying. Its about teh same parking situation we had at last years bash.

DTP - You realize the Holiday Inn is across a highway from the Super 8.

As for the construction its not as bad as it was 2 years ago. I drive my car thro there and have no problems. There is also a way to bypass this construction if need be.


if you have any other questions you can e-mail me or hit me up on AIM.
