This is my "go to" hotel when I visit family in Chesterton, it is comfortable and clean, I love the pond/lake, it adds a nice view and has some great wild life. It is close to the main roads, restaurants and some light shopping.

This property is constantly being upgraded and the level of service is wonderful. It has become our "go to" place for frequent trips to and from Ohio. We heartily recommend it for family and business stays.

Excellent value and location. Stayed NYE to visit friends in NW IN who host a Polar Bear Swim each New Years Day. Chose because the rate was significantly cheaper than similar hotels within the area; the quality of room, pool, breakfast, and check-in and check out process was top-notch. Close to both our friends' house and shopping, dining, etc. Would...

Breakfast was nicely presented in an inviting room. Spacious reception area and lounge in the front of the motel, overlooking a nice man-made lake with Canadian geese and some...

Our extended family has been having our annual holiday reunion at Indian Oak since 2007. Right from the beginning the staff has been most accommodating and supportive of our gathering, which averages about 55 people of all ages. In addition to using the hotel's meeting room, many of us out-of-towners use guest rooms over the weekend. It has been a...

My husband and I had stayed at this hotel several times about 15 years ago for weekend get-aways. We stopped when we heard that the hotel was going throught rough times. I read new reviews that sounded positive and encouraging, and decided to take a chance again. We were pleasantly surprised from the minute we pulled into the parking lot....

Checked out the Deluxe King Suite with Lakeview, Spa Tub, and Fireplace. Room was awesome. View of the lake was very nice which was in contrast to pictures which showed a mostly mossed over lake. Had a good time. Breakfast was OK at best but we got full from it.
