Try The Fairgrounds Inn for some local flavor.
It is not overly recomended but cheap and not like the ones you asked for. It may not be there any more though

RE: Downtown Indianpolis Non-Chain Hotels

The Fairgrounds Inn was torn down a long time ago.

If you don't want to stay in a chain and want a nice hotel, then try the Renaissance Tower Historic Inn. The hotel features 80 very lovely Victorian style rooms. The price ranges from $79-$400.

You can also try the many historic bed-and-breakfasts inns downtown. For example, the Stone Soup Inn, the Looking Glass Inn, the Villa, the Tranquil Cherub, the Nestle Inn, DeWolf-Allerdice House, etc.

Travel Tips for Indianapolis

The greatest spectacle in racing...

by Cabana_Boy

Commonly referred to as "the greatest spectacle in racing", the Indianapolis 500 mile race first started in 1911. Since then, the race has only been suspended during the years in which America was involved in World War I and World War II.

Growing up in central Indiana, I have been fortunate to have gone to the race many times. It truly is something to witness at least once in your lifetime; and, if you are a racing fan, it's an absolute must. The crowd alone is incredible with over 250,000 people craming into the stands at the corner of Sixteenth Street and Georgetown Road. Then there's the roar of the enigines and warm breeze that blows in your face as 33 open wheel race cars scream passed you at speeds over two hundred miles per hour. As a spectator, take a cushion for your "ace", some fried chicken for your belly and plenty of beers for your added enjoyment.

Some art with a side of lunch

by staindesign

I like the IMA. There is always something new happening there. Right now they have the asian art gallery that just reopened. It was closed for probably 2 years, because they remodeled the entire building. It looks very modern and beautiful. The first floor is the check in, the gift shop, and a cool little restaurant called "Puck's" after the famous chef Wolfgang Puck. The second floor is changing gallerys, currently they have quilts there and they have the gallerys of old rembrant style paintings. The third floor is the asian, african, and indian art. Then on the 4th floor they have contemporary and modern art. This one is my favorite. They have some crazy rooms that are places that are experiences. But don't forget to take off your shoes to enter those!

*Another quick tip~
Go on a thursday, it is free! And nothing is better than free!
UPDATE: beginning 2007, general admission is free!

Not a boring town!

by GeneralTsao

"Man, there's lots to do here!"

A fellow VT member introduced me to Yats restaurant and Rathsketcher (or however they spell it) bar/restaurant.

Highly recommend both. The former has Cajun food, the latter has German foods and beer, plus live music---all outdoors and on the roof.

If you're into nostalgia, do not miss Fountain Square. This is a huge 75-year-old four-story building that contains two bowling alleys, a banquet hall in an old theatre, a 50s-style restaurant, a 40s style soda fountain, a 60s style upscale restaurant, and a rooftop beer garden.

The atmosphere is perfect. Everything in the place is old. The floors are original. The soda fountain stools are circa 1930. The booths in the 50s restaurant are genuine, not replicas.

The games and jukeboxes throughout the joint are antiques--and most still operate! I played pinball; five balls for a quarter. The jukeboxes blay 45s, and they still work.

The old billards tables are there to be played.

It is obvious the owner takes great pains to maintain authenticity.

Finally, make sure you use the bowling lanes--they are Duckpin lanes (miniature bowling, for lack of a better term).

highly recommended!
