My husband & I stayed as a stopover en route from MT to NC, so we were very road weary and in need of quality rest. This place definitely delivered in that department. We had a king room with no fridge or micro (this is available in some rooms as I understand it). The bed was very comfortable, and we... More

when you first see hotel, it looks very nice from the outside with the exception of the roof. you walk inside and it looks very cultured. But as you look deeper, you see a property that is badly in need of repair and a really good cleaning. the room we had was clean at least. there were a few holes... More

The room is dirty... no smoke detector. ..can't sit on the chairs unless covered by a towel. The bathroom doors are filthy. The carpet is coming up and I almost fell. There are termites everywhere in here... I'm extremely disappointed I didn't expect much but damn this is really bad!!! Avoid at all cost!!!

Driving in there were potholes throughout the parking lot. The parking lot is dimly lit. Walking in should have been a clue not to stay. It was dimly lit inside and the carpets were stained throughout the hotel. The room itself wasn't too bad a stain on the sheets and it needs updating. The community microwave was filthy. My daughter... More

Our stay at the Merrillville Econo Lodge was very pleasant. The staff was great, the rooms clean, and it was very quiet. One thing we greatly appreciated was the thermostat control on the air as the weather went from warm to cool very quickly and we didn't have to decide between heat and air. The continental breakfast was adequate and... More

Badly in need of renovation. Old smoke smell is disguised by perfume. Need to paint in-room walls, sew the fabrics, and update the sinks and toilets. Thank goodness it was a quick stop over. Pool was in need of a cleaning too. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. All in all I'd say this is barely a 3 star... More

Chose this motel after calling at its more expensive cousin across the car park. It might have been a little tired around the edges but that wasn't noticeable. The usual standard of good beds and other facilities are there to be enjoyed. Nothing grated
