We used a coupon for $10 off that we found at one of the Toll rest areas. The price was fine at 55.99 plus $6.72 tax with the discount. the furnishings in the rooms were very dated and everything looked very worn and tired. The sheets were so thin and even the pillowcase had a large tear. The worst was... More

While in town watching trains and visiting the Dunes, my brother and I stayed here for one night needing somewhere cheap to stay. At only 58 dollars with tax you can't go wrong. Sure the hotel needs a little updating but I really only care about a comfortable bed to sleep in and overall it was. There were only a... More

Once again, a clean, comfortable room at a great price. The location is the best, the customer service is awesome, and if you just need a place to sleep, this is it! I stay here several times a year and keep coming back.

I stay here several times a year. It has always been clean and comfortable. They have some complimentary breakfast items, but don't fill up since the Northside Diner is nearby. The customer service is great and you can't beat the location and price!

Worst hotel stay of my life. Carpeting was dirty and worn. Halls were not air conditioned--stuffy and smelly. Three lamps in the room, one was broken and another had a bulb missing. A/C (Very noisy) had two functional settings: "High" and "Off". Shower had such low pressure that I had to bend at the waist to get my hair wet.... More

Ceiling tiles broken. Chain on door fell out of the wall. Place did not smell clean. Towels were old and scratchy, discolored and stained (dirty). Sheets on the bed were dingy and stained. I questioned wether or not they has even been changed. Under the blanket, the sheet was loose, wrinkled and creased. Only 2 bath towels in the room.... More

We stayed here in order to be close to our grandkids' school. We appreciated the laundry facilities being available. The staff was friendly. We weren't looking for fancy, but we were glad it was clean.

I'm currently staying at this hotel. The ONLY reason I'm here is because my company is paying for the room. 1. The bed is meh. Its not terrible but it isn't good. 2. Housekeeping messed with my toothbrush (rule of thumb, if someone messes with your toothbrush, throw it away) so I had to go to the local Walgreens and... More

After driving for 18 hours I reached the Econo Lodge in Chesterton Indiana. My son came out of the bathroom saying that there were black stains all over the shower curtain. I immediately went to the front desk and complained about the mold on the shower curtain. As I waited at the door of the room, the front desk attendant... More
