It was like going to a wildlife preserve with easy and close access to the freeway. Only downside was wild geese woke us up in morning at daybreak. Bar was very quaint and personable, with adequate choices.

This hotel was fine for a quick visit to Indiana Dunes. I wanted a place that was close to the state park and this sufficed. The front desk manager was quite pleasant and allowed me to check-in early and also gave me an upgrade to my room - a room with a hot tub. However, I don't think I would... More

We stayed here for a night on our way home from a trip. Its surronded by places to eat and a Walgreens and Jewel Osco. Hotel was clean and nice. Newly remodled. Bar was not much and the hot tub was tiny. Pool was really nice though.

Very pleasantly surprised by the location of this hotel. The small lake with the geese, swans, etc. made it an oasis in the heart of a busy intersection. The road noise was much minimized by the trees, the rustling of the water reeds, and the calls of the birds. Very relaxing and charming. Be sure to get a room with... More

Property was recently remodeled. Noticed that fixtures in the room were not removed before painting so it looks a bit sloppy. It is only two floors so no elevator. As long as you can carry your suitcase, it's not a concern. On the plus side, it is in a nice location, surrounded by trees and on a small body of... More

This Best Western appears to be in the midst of a renovation, and has a lot of potential. The rooms and public areas were clean, the staff appeared to be new but accommodating, and the location was great. I really like the little patio that came with the room. The eggs and sausage were not good, and the coffee was... More

This hotel is very close to the Indiana Dunes and has a very cool "nature preserve" as a backdrop for half the rooms. They overlook a small lake with tons of birds and I even saw a raccoon. It is close the Dunes and seems to be a small secret!! If the Dunes are your destination this will get you... More
