“Old strange room”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

We had a jr suite which was very strange. A long narrow room with an outdated bathroom. There was a desk where you came into the room that had a power strip on the floor with everything plugged into it. Definitely not good for our one year old grandson. The shower curtain had mold along the bottom; just a yucky bathroom in general. The toilet had black gunk under the rim that showed. Would not stay there again.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

If you haven't tried this hotel recently you should give it chance. For our most recent stay in September 2012, I was shocked in a great way! My husband and I had stayed there a couple of years ago and the facility was showing it's age, so we hadn't gone back for a while. I decided to give it another chance when a few of the local residents told me that there were some recent upgrades throughout the hotel. Always listen to the locals, they know! This full service hotel/restaurant/bar was clean, fresh and very hospitable.
From the new furniture in the lobby to the freshened hallways to the rooms that were full of customer friendly aspects, everything was fresh and clean. They have upgraded the service to guests by giving them the ability to request room service very easily or plan the time of day that you want your room cleaned by simply filling out a checked card on the night before. The TVs are nice comes with a remote that has been sanitized.
The weekend we stayed many other activities were happening in the area. At the hotel, there was a huge wedding party and some live music that attracted a small crowd in the bar, but the staff made sure that even at the late time that we came back from our event, the guest's safety had been considered. The parking lot is well lighted and there was plenty of staff to maintain a safe environment for families or party goers.
The food was good at the restaurant too. Sunday morning buffet was delicious with a great selection of food that satisfied everyone. Our 11 year old loved the pool too when we finally had some family time on Sunday to enjoy it after our weekend work was done.

The rooms were large with very comfortable mattresses and bedding. The restaurant was excellent! They had locally grown farm fresh items on the extensive menu and even offered gluten free pasta. The breakfast buffet was also delicious and had a large variety to choose from.
I would absolutely stay here again!

The rooms were large and updated, even have a microwave. Having the dining room and bar so easily available was great. Food was delicious. I really enjoyed the menu, many different things to choose from so every family member would be satisfied.

I found the Best Western Plus in LaPorte to be a fabulous place to stay. The rooms were decorated beautifully with everything one could ask for. The restaurant was superb with lots of variety in the menu and each item we ordered was absolutely delicious. The Rothers Bar was inviting with great music and a full assortment of beverages and food. It is a great place for conferences or weddings. I would highly recommend it.

We were coming home from Milwaukee to Cleveland, and stopped here as kind of a mid-way point. There were no towels in the pool area, and the pool was warmer than the hot tub! The room we booked said atrium view, and we got a view of the parking lot. Also, the room was FREEZING!! You turn the a/c off, and the room is stuffy. The a/c control has a little dial that has numbers on it, that usually lets you control how warm/cool it is. Not here. It's low, high or off. But, I didn't get chewed on by bedbugs, so I'm happy! :)

We stayed here 3 nights over Labor Day weekend for a wedding. The price was much lower than the other hotels, and for the price we paid we were very satisfied with the room. It's basic but it had everything we needed and everything looked clean. Beds were comfortable (we much prefer these beds over the very hard ones at the Holiday Inn Express in town). The free wifi worked great. We visited the bar in the hotel and there were actually a lot of people there. We didn't visit the pool.
