Easy access from the highway and many decent dining options nearby. The room was a little small. However, it was clean, quiet, and comfortable. The staff was very friendly, pleasant, and helpful. The breakfast bar was good.

But the hotel is a little on the old side. Positives: right next door to Abuelo's, right off the interstate, reasonable rates, bed comfortable Negatives: interstate noise if your room faces that way, no alcohol in market, breakfast average at best. The one thing this place has going for it is the staff is really friendly and going above board... More

My husband and I stayed here on July 7, 2014. We were only looking for a clean place to sleep after flying in to Ohare from Europe. We booked this last minute because it was on route home. We were pleasantly surprised. The rooms were nice. The beds and pillows are comfy. The breakfast is fantastic and the staff is... More

The hotel is located close to the highway but you would never know it because the hotel rooms are quiet. The check-in staff couldn't have been friendlier and will put a smile on your face and make you feel right at home. The rooms are large and clean, as is the laundry area if you need to do a wash....

We needed to meet Alaska Airline Flight 16 arriving at O'Hare at 6:30. Coming from Dayton, OH, we needed to stay somewhere overnight in order to be at O'Hare by 6:30. We checked motels near the airport and found them to be VERY expensive. We are members of Marriott, so we knew that Fairfield Inn would provide a comfortable overnight... More

My mother and I stayed at the Fairfield in Merrillville one night for a concert at the Star Plaza. If you're going to Star Plaza, consider this hotel. It's cheaper than the Radisson that is attached to the theatre, and it can't be much more than a mile from the venue. The rooms aren't huge, but they were plenty big... More

We have stayed here before but are often upgraded to a bigger room. I asked the check in person (Raquel?) if we had a sofa, and she replied, "yes, there is a chair". The room was super small, even for two of us. Check in was fast but not helpful and no warm greeting, especially as returning guests and Marriott... More

This hotel has smaller rooms than average, but everything you need is there. Room included a mini fridge, microwave, and wardrobe rather than closet. The bathroom counter was tiny, but adequate. Room and common area were clean and well kept. Free breakfast was above average, with scrambled eggs and tasty sausage links. could hear people in the hall on occasion,... More

There were some great things about this hotel: the staff was very pleasant and helpful. The room layout was great, and the room was very clean. But the mattress was lumpy. The lights outside of the room were "staring straight into the sun" bright. The toilet ran all night. And at 1 AM, the alarm clock started going off repeatedly,... More

We were assigned this hotel for the National Lutheran Basketball Tournament at Valparaiso University. The staff was very pleasant and the breakfasts were great. It would be helpful if they had more than 1 waffle maker. It was great to have ice water available at all times in the lobby. The rooms were small. They provided a lot in each... More

Thank you for your kind words about our staff here at the Fairfield! We wish we had an indoor pool as well for swimming year round, it has been a rough winter here!
