Not your usual Country Inn. TV's were old tube style but based on comment above they are planning on replacing them. The pool was just ok. It was small and boring. No hot tub. The rooms were clean. Breakfast was ok. Seemed short staffed and I had to ask the breakfast guy to fill the OJ machine both mornings. It... More

I would never stay at this hotel again. I have been staying at Country Inns exclusively because of their cleanliness and this one is terrible. The carpeting was so dirty. The unit itself was not very clean, either. Good thing I bring bleach wipes to clean things I touch like the remote. It was filthy. The first room I was... More

I have stayed at sea Country Inn and Suites in Merrillville several times. The rooms are always clean and comfortable. The staff is very polite and helpful. Also, the rates are really competitive for the Merrillville area as well. I recommend this hotel.

Wife and I are used to having great experiences at Country Inns. The check in was nice as you would expect but the person did not know the area for food recommendations. The first room had a TV that did not work and all the room TVs were old tube type. Pillows were nice but it seemed like management had... More

Short stay...in late and out early, but the staff was helpful and the room provided all that I needed for the stay. Breakfast was good. A little interesting actually getting back to the hotel as it wasn't right off a main street, but Maps took me directly there.

The hotel was clean, the staff was courteous and the fresh baked cookies were a great welcome! The location is on the service road next to the highway, but I did not hear a lot of hwy noise. The hotel was busy, but everything was still pleasant. I would definitely recommend thie hotel and stay here again.

Very comfortable and very friendly. The front desk personnel are very friendly and accommodating. Worth trying to get to this hotel; kinda tricky. Safe! Close to all amenities. The value received is very good! As good as it gets. Good parking.

We enjoyed our stay. The staff was friendly and helpful.. The room had a separate sitting area which was very nice. Unfortunately the hot tub was taken out of the hotel a week or so before we stayed at the hotel and we stayed there because of the hot tub.

The hotel provides very good value, is a little hard to find in the cluster of hotels in this city. It would appear that the management has "screwed down the cost control of manpower" a little too tight. Luckily the desk clerk was good at riding out the storm pretty well and put on a great face for the hotel... More

We stayed here for two nights while visiting family in a nearby town. I'm not sure if everyone else expects more than us or if we're just easy to please but our stay here was fine.
