Got a very good deal using Express Deal on Priceline to stay a night at the Clarion Inn. Thank goodness for GPS, as the hotel was way back down a side road, past some construction, with no hotel sign to let you know you had arrived. The staff was friendly, and the hotel was nice and clean. The bed was... More

Stayed just one night; found deal on hotwire. The exterior was being repainted, which it desperately needed. The inside of the hotel could use some updating. Our room was small but quiet. The sofa sleeper was due to be retired as the hard metal coils were practically poking through and made for an uncomfortable nights sleep for my eleven year... More

We had traveled back from Green Bay on our way home from my husband bowling in the USBC Masters Tournament. We checked in fairly early, but the hotel was kind enough to let us check in. We asked them to put us in a quiet area because of the problems we had at other hotels and guests being loud and... More

All in all, a okay hotel if you just need a night or two in northwest Indiana. The hotel is VERY hard to find. It's located down a frontage road, past the Star Plaza Theatre, then, where you think the road dead ends, it's past that. It sorely lacks updates. The pool area looks like something from the 80s with... More

Great Clean Hotel. Should give free breakfast even if you buy from priceline. That was not fair. You save a few bucks then they want $9.00 each to eat breakfast Nice pool and hot tub Need kids to be respectful and not run the halls banging on doors at midnight

Thank you for taking the time to complete our online survey regarding your recent stay at our hotel. We run some amazing rates on Priceline, Expedia, and Hot Wire, but they do not include breakfast. They are so highly discounted that we offer breakfast at an additional charge. For those who do wish to have breakfast included we have some... More

First time ever, we were able to use the pool as a family! Our oldest is in a wheelchair and not light, so using a chair lift in the pool was great! Our room was extra big compared to most, bathroom was even better, 100% handicap accessible!!

We got this hotel through Express Deals. Definitely for the cost it was a good deal. Nothing stands out, the hotel is dated that is clear, there is no waterfall when you walk in. My husband said it felt like we were going to a lodge. It would be cool if they could theme it that way a little more... More

The rooms are very nice and clean. The service is wonderful and I love the breakfast. I have stayed here every time I go to Chicago. The price is reasonsable and the hotel is convenient to shopping and food in the area. I love it!
