Try to place your text in indesign as .rtf.

Try also .doc and .docx. 

Is the result always the same?

Hi Mark,

before import make sure that you did select the character style [None] in the Character Styles panel.

Hi Mark,

as a workaround you could also try a script by Marc Autret if you do copy/paste from Word to InDesign.
