This hotel is a fantastic place to stay for business or pleasure. The rates are great. The staff is very accommodating and friendly. I was impressed by the phone call to make sure that my expectations were met and also asked if there was anything I needed. The restaurant is very nice and the food is great! The hotel is... 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

Humidity should be outside the property. Not in it. The whole place was damp. There shouldn't be condensation on lamps and TV screens. That being said, the service was good and the price was better. The location is away from the casino in Michigan City. If that's the reason for your trip, I recommend staying elsewhere.

Interesting layout to this facility. Some rooms are like the old motels where you park in front of your room door, and others are more hotel where the door enters into a cooridor. We had the former and and found it very convenient for loading/unloading. Room was clean, quiet and comfortable. All staff that we encountered were friendly, competent and... More

I stayed at this property just a month earlier and while it wasn't great, it was clean. Shortly after arriving, the front desk called and asked how thing were. I told the agent that the ottoman was filthy and the carpet was very stained. She said that after the public area person arrived, she would send someone down to check.... More

Hotel looks worn out inside and out. The remodeled rooms are okay, but, the mattresses are hard as a rock. No fan in the bathrooms, just the outdated sunlamps that they chose to keep when they remodeled. We checked in, then left for the evening. When we returned, we could not find a remote for the tv. When we finally... More

The original motel had a new wing constructed eight years ago. This wing is VERY nice and worth the money. HOWEVER the original motel is over forty years old and needs some major improvements. For the price being charged, one would expect a refrigerator and microwave. Instead, one gets poor lighting, a narrow room, no sound conditioning and a bath... More

This hotel was an exterior hallway motel that they did a conversion on to make the hallways inside. Unfortunately, the rooms are still 1980's motel quality. It was not worth the price compared to other, much nicer hotels within blocks. The breakfast was sub-par. We ended up paying for breakfast a few hours later when we all realized that no-one... More
