Good average clean hotel, nothing fancy just your standard hotel room. We were able to bring our dog and he stayed in the room. Breakfast was average, employees were nice and friendly. Would stay again as we didnt come for the hotel room we came for the dunes.

If I could, I would rate this hotel as a 3 ½ because it was clean and had a nice indoor pool but the rooms were pretty average and the breakfast was a pretty typical. We chose this hotel as a stopover on route to our Wisconsin destination because of its location and proximity to the Lighthouse Outlet shopping area.... More

Unlike previous positive comments, this was a bad experience. Our room was filthy and the shower was so disgusting, no one even attempted to use it. Room was outdated, dirty and noisy. Next time thru Michigan City, we will definitely look elsewhere. Our room was $130 and would not have paid $50 had we known. Staff was pleasant though.

Nice clean hotel – great pool area for the kids and adults alike. Best hotel we have found in the area. Staff is friendly and helpful. Nothing fancy, but good value for families and/ or groups of families.

This Clarion is the best hotel in the area. The rooms were a good size and it was a quiet night. We slept very well. The hotel had a very nice size pool and hot tub. Breakfast was very good. The hotel was very close to the highway and to Indiana dunes.

The hotel is clean and kept. Our room was standard double beds, and the shower/bath is so nice. The only complaint I had was that I did not check the bathtub immediately after check-in, and the bath tub flooded during my shower. My bed was a little stiff, but that's not something to complain about as I am picky about... More

We appreciate your time in offering us feedback for the property. I apologize, at times the small shampoo bottles can become lodged in the drain pipe. It isn't always noticeable when cleaning as the water does not run as long as it does with a bath or shower. I am in the process of locating good drain covers to prevent... More

We got a room on the first floor, it was clean and since we were only there as a stopover, it did the job. The rooms are a little dated looking. The breakfast was quite good for a budget hotel. It is right off the highway and near a lot of restaurants too.

If I could give a negative rating, I would. This will need to suffice... I could not find a working ice machine anywhere. Even though the hotel was almost completely empty, I was put as far away from the front desk as possible... this hotel had a nice atrium with rooms that faced inside. And finally, when I had difficulty... More
