My friend and I decided to take a weekend get away at the last minute on July fourth. I made reservations at Red Roof Inn in Michigan City for two nights. We left RR after the first night. Very DIRTY....stained sheets, stained towels, dirty carpet, and moldly smell. I got my money back for the extra night and we headed... More

The Buffalo Motel is a standard roadside motel. The rooms were fairly small, but everything was clean. The bed was comfortable, and though the motel is on Highway 12, it was quiet. Bathroom was small, but well kept. The small box of Whitman chocolates upon check in were an unexpected surprise. This is everything I need in a roadside motel.... More

There weren’t many reviews about this place nor did they have a website. So, we were skeptical to say the least! We drove in from Chicago, fingers crossed, and despite the look of the outside were happy with it. The lady at the front desk was nice and even let us check out late the next day. It’s a motel...

I was skeptical staying at a motel, but I was surprised at how clean the room was. We had a coffee maker, stainless steel mini fridge and microwave in our room. The rooms are small, but for $55 a night, the price was right. Located only a mile from Casey's and a few miles from the casino. I would stay... More

I have stayed here a few times over the last few years and had NEVER had a problem. The owners are nice, the value is great and the room was very clean. I'm a stickler for clean bathrooms and it was very clean. I have a major spider phobia so I was kinda nervous about bugs but I still have... More

After reading thie last review I was pretty scared, but there wasn't too much to choose from on a holiday weekend. I didn't expect to be spending much time in there so I figured I would chance it. I don't know where the other reviewer stayed, but this place was clean had everything i needed. The room was small and... More
