This is located in the Kroger plaza at 65th and Keystone, a few doors down from Cancun.
All the washers are front load. They come in 3 sizes, double-load, 4-load, and 6-load capacity.
The pricing on the washers is not flat rate, but it makes sense. If you want warm or hot water (as opposed to cold) it costs $.25 more per wash, regardless of the size washer you choose. With the price of energy, one can't blame them for charging just a bit more for heating up the water.
The price also depends on whether you choose ""light"", ""medium"", or ""heavy"" soil level, which translates into the minutes per wash: 24 minutes, 27 minutes, or 30 minutes. (Those are the times for all cycles.)
The washers automatically go through 3 rinse cycles, but only one wash cycle (no pre-wash.) At least that's how it worked on my 4-load (the middle size) washer set for ""heavy"" soil.
For double-loaders: $2.75 for light soil, $3.00 for medium, $3.25 for heavy (plus another .25 if you choose warm or hot water.)
For 4-loaders, $4.75 for light soil, $5.00 for medium, $5.25 for heavy (plus another .25 if you choose warm or hot water.)
For 6-loaders, $6.75 for light soil, $7.25 for medium, $7.50 for heavy (plus another .25 if you choose warm or hot water.)
There are 7 flat panel TV's up high on the walls, plus another TV used as the monitor for the 16 security cameras.
They have free Wi-Fi. See one of the signs for the username/password that you need to log in.
They just opened in March 2012, so everything is shiny-new and clean. The men's room was spotless.
The evening attendent is a recent immigrant from Asia, who is not fluent in English yet, but is super sweet and nice to the point of being a bit obsequious. But she knows enough English to explain the options on the machines.
There are two size dryers: normal size is 8 minutes per $.25, and the large size are 5 minutes per $.25.
They are open until 11:00pm, with the last wash having to start by 10:00pm. The washers are computer-controlled and are programmed to shut down at 10:00pm (unless you've already started yours prior to 10:00pm), so the attendent can't make any exceptions.
Prices are on par with the Classic Cleaners Tan & Laundry in downtown Broad Ripple, but not as cheap as my favorite 24-hour ghetto-laundry at E 38th and Mitthoeffer.
They have not been ""discovered"" yet, so it's not crowded so far.
