After driving for 18 hours I reached the Econo Lodge in Chesterton Indiana. My son came out of the bathroom saying that there were black stains all over the shower curtain. I immediately went to the front desk and complained about the mold on the shower curtain. As I waited at the door of the room, the front desk attendant... More

My sister and brother-in-law recently moved from Chicago to their new home in Chesterton, Indiana. They invited me to share Easter weekend with them. Having lived there only one month, I thought it best to find lodging while they still get settled. EconoLodge Chesterton proved to be the perfect choice. The service provided to me regarding having WIFI support and... More

2 guys fighting outside, no cars in lot (should have been a sign). Dirty stained walls in room, filthy bathroom, stained towels, old 70's decor. I could have stayed at the best western for the same money or better yet, the Holiday inn for $40 more

I was here a year ago and liked it, so I came back the other day. There are a lot of bad reviews and the place almost got one from me. The room they initially gave me had a problem with the locks. Once I was finally able to enter, I noticed the ceiling leaking in the bathroom. I went... More

Gray sheets and pillowcases, rooms with extremely poor lighting, dirty toilets, dirty tubs, two gray bath towels per room, no face towels, a TV that makes you wonder if it's color or black and white, a continental breakfast consisting of miniature plastic wrapped sweet rolls, a loaf of white bread and butter, smoking guests outside of guest room windows --...

What a rip off. Stayed at a lot of places and this is by far the worst. They are so cheap even with the coffee served for breakfast. Could not wait to get out of there. Dirty too. Too bad but I will never again stay at an Econo lodge.

I hesitated staying here because of a few bad reviews. I stayed anyway and don't understand what the problems were. The room was clean and everything worked. The staff was great and the location was excellent. I'm from the area and will stay here again.

We stayed in this hotel in March 2013 and we found it very comfortable and clean. We had no issues with our room and actually had a quiet night. There weren't many tv channels but the wi-fi worked. Our shower worked fine and there were plenty places to eat around the hotel itself.

This is by far the most disgusting place I ever had to stay. Was traveling to Wisconsin in August 2012 and at 2 am in the morning and after stopping for many miles at several places to be told "no vacancies" we finally found this place. (Now I know why this place had available rooms - because NOBODY in their... More
