“Don't Stay Here!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

This place is terrible and a complete rip off. The deadbolt didn't work. The toilet didn't work. The coffee pot didn't work. The soap packets were from other hotels. The water tasted and smelled horrible. The towels and sheets were gross. I requested a non-smoking room, but it reeked like stale smoke. It was dark and dingy. I can't believe that this place charges $85 per night. I wouldn't have paid $5 for this disgusting hole. Don't stay here.

Probably the worst place we've ever stayed. I would echo some previous comments: dirty shower. dirty floor, dusty furniture, dead bugs on floor, water smelled like rotten eggs, no hot water for shower, no security locks on door.

Room Tip: Best tip: find another motel.

Booking process was fine but twice we tried to cancel due to poor condition of hotel. It was in total disrepair and a little eerie. Had we not been on motorcycles all day and dreadfully tired, we would have moved on.

Checked into a $85.00 room. Rug filthy, room cold, running water smelled like rotten eggs, bottom of shower curtains reaked of filth, mold and stench. Tissue containers...empty. deadbolt on door, non functioning. No basic accessories, i.e. plastic clothes bags. Holes in walls, cobwebs on ceiling. Need I say more? I would have felt better getting mugged for $85.00, the the price I paid for this room! STAY AWAY!

Room Tip: Drive a littler further North on Route 41 into Schererville, Indiana. It is well worth the price of...

My husband and I stayed in one of the Crestview Inn Paradise suites for our anniversary and I only wish we could have stayed longer. The hotel is beautiful, the decor is interesting yet understated. The service was outstanding. Every person there wants to help you in any way they can. We felt very pampered from the moment we walked through the doors. Our room was large and opulently furnished. I can't wait to go back!

This was our second time to Creatview. All I can say is...what a great hotel. The employees are over the top. Not one issue with any employee from check in to check out. The rooms are extremely clean and comfortable. The list goes on and on. If you stay here you will not be disappointed.

Wow! What a nice hotel! The decor is beyond amazing and the overall relaxing, calm vibe you get is something you don't usually get at a hotel. I loved the rooms-- the bedding was awesome, shower great, lots of TV channels, and I could go on and on. The "Pond" is one of the best I've ever seen at a hotel. They have everything you can imagine. Overall, I was extremely pleased with my stay and was actually sad to leave. Definitely check it out if you are in the area!
