Quick summary: much is the same as a previous visit -- spacious, clean, well-kept room. Whether traveling through or needing to stay for a while, this is a good choice. My review is based on what I expect for a moderately-priced, well-kept hotel. Since there are not many other reviews since my previous visit, I refer readers to that more... More

This is my "go to" hotel when I visit family in Chesterton, it is comfortable and clean, I love the pond/lake, it adds a nice view and has some great wild life. It is close to the main roads, restaurants and some light shopping.

This property is constantly being upgraded and the level of service is wonderful. It has become our "go to" place for frequent trips to and from Ohio. We heartily recommend it for family and business stays.

Excellent value and location. Stayed NYE to visit friends in NW IN who host a Polar Bear Swim each New Years Day. Chose because the rate was significantly cheaper than similar hotels within the area; the quality of room, pool, breakfast, and check-in and check out process was top-notch. Close to both our friends' house and shopping, dining, etc. Would... More

Breakfast was nicely presented in an inviting room. Spacious reception area and lounge in the front of the motel, overlooking a nice man-made lake with Canadian geese and some... More
