This hotel was very clean and QUIET. It's an older hotel, but the décor was neat and not shabby looking. Hotel staff was friendly and helpful. Even the cleaning staff checked to make sure we had everything we needed. Breakfast was good with lots of options.

The facility had a face lift from the last time I had stayed here. Very neat and tidy. The location was so close to the Indiana Dunes, the South Shore Line that runs to Chicago, a grocery store, a city park, Peggy Sue's diner in the little town, and a Catholic church. Also, many stores and eateries are with in... More

Loved the decor & amenities but our key cards worked infrequently both at the door to our room and also the outside door. Loved the little patio & chairs outside our room. The patio & chairs made the room feel homey.

We spent one one here before heading to the Dunes. It seems this place was once part of a larger hotel complex which has been split up. We had a wonderful room on the second floor in the back overlooking a small lake with ducks and geese. It had a nice little deck to sit and watch the birds. Free... More

Front Desk Service was great. He even gave us directions to the Harley Davidson Store tht we wanted to go to. The staff was very nice and promptly brought us a blanket when we asked for one. The Location is great. Bathroom showercurtin needs cleaned and the Price is too high. All in all it's Good but could be better.

Wasn't sure what to expect when booking, but was pleased with our stay. My guess is that when this place first opened, it was very nice. It definitely shows some age now, but you can tell there have been efforts to update it. Rooms are clean. Beds comfortable. Breakfast is good with a good amount of options (eggs, sausage, biscuits,... More

Best Western was very close to the Indians Dunes National Park. There is a variety of restaurants nearby, with a very low traffic build up. The motel staff were very friendly and provided excellent care. The room was nice, comfortable and clean. The indoor pool is a nice size for kids to swim and was clean. There was a problem... More

Best Western Indian Oak had nice sized, comfortable rooms. We had two rooms: one with two double beds and one room with a king sized bed. The beds were comfortable! The hotel surrounds Lake Chubb. There are various birds: geese, ducks, and sea gulls. The birds can be a little noisy, but what can you expect? There are many rooms... More

FIrst of all, be forewarned that there is no elevator at this hotel, although the front-desk clerk did offer to help us with our bags. That being said, why was there a luggage cart on the second floor and how did it get there? LOL. I booked earlier in the day, before leaving Wisconsin. Good thing as hotel was FULL... More
