We just needed a place to rest our heads for the night. Arrived late. Had called ahead to secure a room. Check-in was swift by friendly staff (had to call down to get the wifi password-later found a small piece of paper in with the key cards with the password on). A two double room with AAA discount came to...

Overall a very nice hotel and pleasant stay. The hotel has been recently renovated from the looks of it with very nice and comfortable rooms, they have a decent breakfast, and the service was pretty good. There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance, it's close to the 94 interstate, and the Indiana Dunes State Park is about 5 minutes...

This little jem of a hotel was a great place for me and my family to stay overnight when we went on our recent trip to the Indiana Dunes. The hotel had clean comfy rooms, great breakfast (I had seconds of waffles and biscuits and gravy), and a very helpful and friendly staff. I would stay here again if going...

I found the pool area wonderful and the rooms wonderful, my only suggestion is having a Handcap ramp installed so you can go to the 2nd floor from the 1st floor. I would also install plastic patio's on each floor instead of the Wood Patios. Plastic is a little safer on the feet. I would put a water mover into...

This hotel was in the perfect location to get to the Indiana Sand Dunes State Park as well as restaurants and ease of getting on and off the interstates. Great breakfast and nice views for kids to enjoy waterfowl.

This is an older hotel, but has been kept up nicely. The room was quite spacious. It was fairly clean, but not overly so. The bathroom door was splintering and the tub/shower was not quite up to my level of cleanliness. We requested a crib, which was not in our room when we arrived, but was brought down within 20...

We have stayed at this hotel for the past 10 years and the service and quality has really improved. Great location, love the view. Substantial breakfast and great value. Screens were repaired this year. Hotel was sold out on the weekend we went.

This hotel was very clean and QUIET. It's an older hotel, but the décor was neat and not shabby looking. Hotel staff was friendly and helpful. Even the cleaning staff checked to make sure we had everything we needed. Breakfast was good with lots of options.

The facility had a face lift from the last time I had stayed here. Very neat and tidy. The location was so close to the Indiana Dunes, the South Shore Line that runs to Chicago, a grocery store, a city park, Peggy Sue's diner in the little town, and a Catholic church. Also, many stores and eateries are with in...

Loved the decor & amenities but our key cards worked infrequently both at the door to our room and also the outside door. Loved the little patio & chairs outside our room. The patio & chairs made the room feel homey.
