The hotel is clean and the staff is wonderful. It is an older facility so don't expect granite counters and not all rooms have refrigerators. It has a restaurant with a bar attached for convenience. Free breakfast and parking. The indoor pool is enclosed by a fence and numerous hotel rooms open to this common area with indoor seating, perfect... More

Beds were comfortable, great pillows and plenty of them, room was good size and clean, and management accommodated my request for a first floor room, which I appreciated. Hotel boasts an indoor pool, which we did not use but we heard a lot of shouting from it when we passed the arboretum so it must have been enjoyable to the... More

We grabbed a room at the Michigan City Clarion for a wedding in the beginning of August. Chosen for two reasons: Price and the wedding venue had it on it's shuttle route. Looking at reviews I was skeptical but couldn't really beat the price. I have to say any negative review I read was wrong. The hotel was great. Clean,... More

Not at all impressed with booking through Hotwire. Should have called the hotel directly to book. Got the hotel and they gave me my room key. They gave me a double room in the old motel part of the hotel. It was dingy and very dated. I went immediately back to the desk and said the room was unacceptable for... More

We stayed here in our way to Chicago. We were given a HUGE suite with a massive bathroom, kitchen, and living area! The room was clean and the halls were quiet and close to the elevators.

We was on the way to iowa but the traffic is heavy so I need a room so we book room here for $109 that's included military discount. The room smell sting and dusty. No microwave. Bed sheet has period stain and not enough outlet plug. I make a big mistake to stay here. I will never stay here anymore

We had been driving most of the day and wanted to stop once past Chicago and Gary, IN. We stopped at Michigan City, IN because there were several motels promoted on roadside signs.
