4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We were on our way to the Indy 500 and only wanted to drive half way. We had stayed at the motel before and were pleasantly surprised how nice the King Studio Suite was. Very clean and comfortable. There was no noise outside coming in or in the halls. The location was very convenient for getting back on the interstate... More

I booked a no cancellation room by accident. I contacted them two weeks before my stay and they would not give me any grace for this. They must be more concerned about short term gain than long term gain as I will not stay in their hotel or any other in their chain nor will I recommend them to any... More

We stayed at the Country Inn and Suites in Merrillville IN on our way to Chicago to save some money. It is approximately an hour or less from the city and was only 1/3 the price of our Chicago lodging. The property is near other lower prices chains but probably one of the better options for this particular area. The... More

Was at first leary of booking but when I arrived I was so surprised on how well kept and nice the facility and rooms were. Staff was the nicest most helpful I have had in awhile. Breakfast was very good and most of all they had dark roast coffee which is unusual. Most time what I end up getting is... More

We got this hotel via a hidden bid on another travel site. While I probably wouldn't have chosen it on my own, I was pleasantly surprised when it was revealed to me. The hotel was in decent condition, no significant dirt/odors/issues that made our experience unpleasant. When you looked a little deeper though, the wear and tear on the building... More

My stay was absolutely amazing. I had such a wonderful night. The beds were so comfortable and big. The girl at the front desk, Nancy, was so nice and polite as she checked me out. As was the manager, Rita, she was so friendly and accommodating. The breakfast as well was wonderful. I loved this Country Inn & Suites. I... More

We love our stays at most of the Country Inn Suites. That is our hotel of choice, however this one had very slow Internet, it just shuts down. Bathtub does not have handicap rails a person could slip & fall while taking a shower. Cable goes out, wires on back of tv and connected to wall very loose. One TV... More
