I've never stayed in a Clarion Inn before and will not be staying again. It was decent, but the bathroom and sink outside of the bathroom were dirty upon arrival. The sheets were mostly yellow instead of white (which they obviously should have been). The only good things about the room were the fridge and microwave.

I got this room for a good price on a hotel deal sight. I stayed here for 5 nights while visiting family in the area. The grounds of this hotel are very pretty. The inside is dated but clean (can't complain for the price I payed). The hotel does offer breakfast but it was not included with my stay because... More

Above average for a Clarion Inn, as I just stayed in 1 earlier this week in a different town that was a dump. This location though has clean and comfortable beds, with good quality pillows. AC blows very cold. Wifi was fast and reliable. Bathroom and shower were clean. Front desk staff was friendly. No road noise even though I-65... More

We were looking for a place near the Indiana Dunes and Deep River Water park and outlet shopping. This was a great location. I liked that they offered an indoor/outdoor pool. Our kids loved this! The room was a double with 2 double beds a chair and a desk and chair. It was decent sized for $89.00 a night. They... More

We stayed at the clarion hotel for three nights for the band/dance competition. We traveled all night from Alabama so inquired about checking in once we arrived.(before check in) the front desk staff was amazing. The manager allowed us to see the room beforehand due to a bad experience booking with a third party before this stay. The rooms were... More

Stayed two nights while traveling on business. Did not take advantage of the indoor pool or free breakfast but saw many who did and they all seemed to be enjoying them selves. Located a bit off the main road but that made it private. The room was good and I had no complaints. Did use the WIFI and it worked... More

We stayed for two nights for a family reunion. It's not really what we're used to, but it was clean. The decor is a bit dated. Chairs in hallway were worn. The duvet cover on the bed that my children slept it had a rip in it. We never got around to calling about it. Have to say that the... More

Based on the info book in the room, this property used to be a Courtyard by Marriott. It does not look like a typical Choice property. The lobby was a massive, rather dramatic two story room with a larger than usual dining area. Hallway was a bit twisty and not the typical straight off the lobby. Our room was also... More

We are a very unique hotel in Merrillville, offering a nice little oasis and getaway from the standard square, parking lot hotels in the area. Beautiful grounds, ponds, waterfall, and our swim out indoor/outdoor pool is amazing. Thank you so much for staying with us! Please come see us again. More

We booked online thru Priceline about 2 hrs before we checked in and it was by far the smoothest Priceline transaction I have had. The desk agent (Edward/ Edmond?) was very welcoming and eager to help in any way he could. Stayed one night in a King suite. The hotel is a little bit dated, but our room was clean,... More
