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

This hotel is old, dated, and not clean. I had disgusting stained bedding and pillows (until I asked for a second set), and and old and deeply uncomfortable bed. Breakfast is not free if you book through Hotwire and Priceline, but it did not look very appealing anyway. It is just a very tired hotel in need of a complete... More

Very comfortable place to stay for our one night stay. Only thing that keeps it from a 5 star rating is that for the cost, I am not sure why breakfast was not included. Otherwise, I highly recommend it.

Scott C, General Manager at Clarion Inn in Merrillville, responded to this review

Thank you for staying with us! We offer very competitive rates online, which is why we do not include breakfast in those rates. There are numerous packages and options that you can choose from through several websites and choice hotels. You will not find better service, or a nicer property in the area at those prices! More

I don't know what's wrong with the people that are complaining about picky little things on here, they aren't staying at a luxury hotel. Clarion Inn is supposed to be the lower end of the choice Hotel chain, but, for the price, this is one of the nicest I have stayed in and I have stayed in over 100 hotel... More
