This is a nice hotel for Michigan City. The room was small but clean. I love being able to take my large dog and have no issues with his breed/size!! The only problem is pet friendly rooms are on the outside of the hotel. You have to walk outside to get to the pool or restaurant. The other problem was... More

I stopped in Michigan City, IN and stayed at the Clarion Inn. They are very pet friendly and didn't charge for my cat. . .of course I don't think they normally charge for pats. They have rooms inside the main building, and additionally they have a separate section of rooms like the old style of motel--probably for those individuals with... More

This property is a former Holiday Inn with the old hotel and a newer one attached. We stayed in the older hotel with access from the outside. I would definitely prefer an inside room in the newer building.

I went shopping at the outlet mall in Michigan City. This place was very inexpensive which made me nervous at the time but it was decent. There were some things that needed to be updated or taken care of through out the building but nothing that gave me the creeps. The restaurant had good food. It was about a 15... More

Pets stay with no additional pet fee and their only rules were, no pets in the hallway. Usually in the hotels we have brought our 2 boxers to, there has been a limit on size and how many pets, and within those constraints an additional nightly fee...not at this Clarion in Michigan City, IN; thus I give 4 stars because...

We would like to thank you for taking the time to review our property. We appreciate hearing the good feedback, as well as the constructive criticism. I am purely to blame for your room "upgrade". Our standard king outside rooms do not offer refrigerators, microwaves or the space that the 2 queen deluxe room offers. That said, I did not... More

Based on the mixed reviews we didn't know what to expect, and we were a little nervous about our stay. Upon arrival we were pleasently surprised! Yes the place is dated, but it was very clean and comfortable. The hotel does have a funky layout, but easy to navigate. The room itself had a very comfortable bed, with full size... More

This Clarion is a nice place, especially considering they are fairly inexpensive. It looks like it is used as conference center, with a large indoor pool Oasis Area. This would be great for parties. We were only passing through and stayed one night. They put us at the end of the 1st floor hallway so it would be easier with... More

Just stayed at the Clarion. It was just an average stay in my opinion. The inside hallways were HOT and not sure if the AC was working, but the AC in the rooms worked excellent. The rooms are a little dated as our bathroom had numerous patches in the wall and had been painted with different shades. I am not... More
