The hotel makes many claims, however, none are accurate. The hotel claims it is on a lake .... Nope a slimy, green pond. The hotel claims it has been recently renovated. Though it has new flooring and white bedding, renovated leaves you with high expectations. The ceilings are flaking and in disrepair, the walls and windows are as thin as... More

We couldn't afford to stay in Chicago for a weekend getaway so we opted for Chesterton at less than 1/2 the price. The hotel is a quick drive to the Dunes State Park, Interstate 94 and the South Shoreline commuter train (which we took into Chicago to avoid traffic and parking). There are a wide variety of restaurants within walking... More

Hotel was very accommodating. Clerks were very pleasant and helpful. Breakfast area a little small, was very over-crowded so went to eat somewhere else. Room was nice, clean and had everything needed for our trip.

We just needed a place to rest our heads for the night. Arrived late. Had called ahead to secure a room. Check-in was swift by friendly staff (had to call down to get the wifi password-later found a small piece of paper in with the key cards with the password on). A two double room with AAA discount came to... More

Overall a very nice hotel and pleasant stay. The hotel has been recently renovated from the looks of it with very nice and comfortable rooms, they have a decent breakfast, and the service was pretty good. There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance, it's close to the 94 interstate, and the Indiana Dunes State Park is about 5 minutes... More

This little jem of a hotel was a great place for me and my family to stay overnight when we went on our recent trip to the Indiana Dunes. The hotel had clean comfy rooms, great breakfast (I had seconds of waffles and biscuits and gravy), and a very helpful and friendly staff. I would stay here again if going... More

I found the pool area wonderful and the rooms wonderful, my only suggestion is having a Handcap ramp installed so you can go to the 2nd floor from the 1st floor. I would also install plastic patio's on each floor instead of the Wood Patios. Plastic is a little safer on the feet. I would put a water mover into... More

This hotel was in the perfect location to get to the Indiana Sand Dunes State Park as well as restaurants and ease of getting on and off the interstates. Great breakfast and nice views for kids to enjoy waterfowl.

This is an older hotel, but has been kept up nicely. The room was quite spacious. It was fairly clean, but not overly so. The bathroom door was splintering and the tub/shower was not quite up to my level of cleanliness. We requested a crib, which was not in our room when we arrived, but was brought down within 20...

We have stayed at this hotel for the past 10 years and the service and quality has really improved. Great location, love the view. Substantial breakfast and great value. Screens were repaired this year. Hotel was sold out on the weekend we went.
