Got here Saturday at 2pm. Check in was at 4. Was allowed to check in at 2. We didn't like the 1st room and the front desk was nice enough to upgrade us to a junior suite. When we checked in we signed a sheet that there are no parties. We decided to use the hot tub before dinner. It... More

I have stayed here before in the tower side of the hotel. It was fine no issues. We took our 4 year old grandson this time and got a room pool side. Big mistake, room has no way of controlling the temp in the room, its from a boiler that you cannot control. Room was about 74 degrees, when we... More

The pet friendly rooms are very tired and small with double beds. The bathroom was barely big enough to turn around, the a/c did not work and the pet-friendly entrance smelled really bad. The pool and hot tub were nice but it was really dark in the room with the pool at night. The staff moved us to a different... More

I booked a large group into the hotel. I was needing not only rooms for a team but also a block of rooms for the parents as well. Every person I spoke with while booking and clarifying our needs was great. A big thank you goes to Dawn for her patience with all of my questions and numerous verification calls... More

Breakfast was great, hot stuff and friendly caretaker. TV swivels which is great, windows open for fresh air at night. Pet owners so... More

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...

Clarion Inn M, General Manager at Clarion Inn Michigan City, responded to this review

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
