I was working for 3 weeks in Whiting, but the lack of hotel choices, and high prices nearer made us look farther out. We wanted a kitchen so we stayed here. It's a reasonably quite area surrounded by other hotels. The rooms are a bit on the small side, but very clean and everything worked. However they offer a VERY limited selection of television channels, far below what I'm used to in hotels. There are several restaurants in walking distance, as well as a mall and a movie theater. Wal-Mart and grocery stores are within a mile. They have several laundry machines. I never had to wait to use one.
Breakfast is coffee, snack bars and packages muffins.
The total daily rate came out to about $75, but then everything is high in this area. I was a bit taken back by the pay-in-advance policy, but they refunded the overage quickly at checkout.
Overall, the place is bare-bones in furnishings, but comfortable and safe. Not quite what I'm used to, but this time we had to stay on budget. I'd stay here again under the same circumstances.
