Much too expensive. Room had a sliding door to outside but screen had holes in it and there were no curtains on the sliding door only blackout drapes therefore no privacy unless drapes were pulled. Only one person working the desk so time to check in was long. There was a small patio outside the room but children were running... More

Pluses: Attractive lobby, good-sized rooms, lovely setting. The even-numbered rooms look out on a small lake. Walking distance to just about any fast food chain you can think of, as well as several nicer restaurants. I sleep through trains, but if you are a light sleeper, you might find it on the noisy side. Stay away from the eggs at... More

Best feature: room large and comfortable. We had a standard king. There were sliding doors leading to small lake, with private patio/balcony which was nice. Staff were all excellent. Bed very comfortable. We would stay there again.

Location was good for us. Was looking for a spot between southwest Michigan and Chicago and this was it. Hotel is a minute or two off highway. Plenty of restaurants right around it. Good exit to stay at if you want to go to Indiana Dunes State Park. This was probably a premier hotel back in its heyday. The approach... More

Thank you for your feedback to your recent stay with us. In regards to the pool ceiling, the vent is positioned at an angle and would give the illusion that it is loose if not looked at closely. We have been working with our pest control prevention team to take care of any bugs that you have mentioned. Unfortunately, being... More

My daughter had a birthday party there. The pool was very clean and the staff was very helpful. I thought it was very nice that they gave us a stack of towels for the pool. All of her party guests we very impressed with the hotel. Would definitely come back.

In town for loss of family. The staff was very helpful and apologetic. There were not many rooms left however they made accomodations to the best availability for myself and family. The breakfast is very appreciated, hot and delicious. My daughter looks forward everytime and it can actually get her out of bed. Will never sway from this hotel when... More

Recently there with my family and baby for Labor Day Weekend. Went to the bathroom at 2am, turned the lights on and see several cockroaches by the coffee maker.

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel while we visited the Dunes State Park. The location is great, the room large & comfortable with a nice patio. The breakfast was quite adequate especially enjoyed the waffle maker option!

This appears to be an older hotel, but has wen very well maintained. We arrived late without a reservation. The desk clerk was very helpful and provided us with extra linens and information on local restaurant delivery. We used the pool and hot tub which were both nice.

Got a late start, trying to find lodging, on a long road trip. Saw this hotel listed on the Internet at a reasonable price. Unfortunately, even though the parking lot was not overly inviting, went to front desk to inquire about rates. Best price available, approximately 100% greater than listed on the Internet. Plenty of hotel options available – –... More
