Our check in started on a perfect note. Front desk friendly quick and extremely efficient . Hotel rooms are renovated but hotel still has a dated dark feel probably from long narrow hallways. Rooms are just so so. Could have been cleaner crumbs in corners and edges of sofa. Bathroom small. However our entire experience was overshadowed by experience with... More

First... the location is impeccable. I grew up down the highway from the hotel. I've been there for events growing up but I've never spent the night. So now, 15 years removed from living in the area, I decided to get a room while visiting. I booked my room through Priceline so I got an excellent rate on the room.... More

This was just an average hotel. It was obviously an old hotel, but renovated so it seemed up to date. The pool area inside was attractive with the waterfall, but beyond that, I can't say it was anything special. There was no hot tub inside and the one outside was still closed for the season. The whole cabana area was... More

The recent room renovations have made a big difference. The rooms are well fitted with nice HD TVs. It is still a sprawling property and rooms around the indoor pool can be noisy. Worth a visit especially mid-week when there are fewer large events. Ample parking and an onsite Starbucks are a plus.

I stayed for one night with my husband and preschool age son. The hotel has been remodeled (new linens, furniture, vanity and sink in the bathroom etc.). However, there are places where you can tell it's an older hotel. The bathroom is very small. The hallways were noisy until around 11 p.m. The pool was fun for my son but... More

Stayed here one night to attend a show at the Star Plaza Theater. If you know Merrillville, you know you don't want to be out driving around - just too much traffic. From a convenience standpoint for the theater, it can't be beat. This is an aged property, but is pretty well maintained. New carpet, furniture. New vanity in the... More
