This Motel 6 is right off I-65 and Rte 30 near the South Lake Mall in Merrillville, IN. It has two stories and no elevators. We were a last minute/late night arrival. Our room was ready however for a small fee we accepted Tamea's offer to upgrade our room to include MicroFridge microwave and mini fridge appliances which were very... More

Hardwood floors, flat screen TV, and great prices. My husband and I have weekend getaways once or twice a month here for the last 6 months. Scott is the best front desk worker they have. Samantha has an attitude everytime I've interacted with her. The redhead doesn't work well under pressure. We booked two rooms this weekend and decided to... More

The location is one of the newly renovated with flat panel televisions and bed linens. Arrived early and was given a room close to front door. Ice machine was in opposite end of complex, hence quietness. Motel uses interior entry room and promoted a safer feel. Coffee was available at morning departure. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Hello , I just spent a few day on business in Merrillville, IN at a motel 6, I was on a budget and every other place there was over charging, so I saw the sign and give it a shoot. First the advertised price way, 39.00, and before i go any further this was 07-12-16 to 07-13-16. I think that... More

The price was great for what you got. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I liked the laminate flooring in the room much better then typical dingy carpeting. There was a few hairs in the tub but that was overlooked as it can happen. Little tricky how to close the door perhaps was just our room. The room itself... More

We work for a delivery service, so we stay in hotels quite often. The night we stayed at this hotel was the worst hotel experience we have ever had. We checked in around 11pm, the front desk clerk was pretty incompetent but we finally got the key card. When we walked into the room, the beds were pulled out from... More

We've stayed at this hotel twice in the past 2 months (April/May 2016 same room, one night each stay). The first stay was just my husband and I, the next was with our 2 teenage children. For the price of less than $50 a night(tax included), it was worth it. The room was clean and looked as though it was... More

The location of the motel 6 is right next to I-65 and close to the mall, target, grocery store and any restaurant and fast food chains you can imagine. The hotel itself had very nice staff and the room was equipped with a king size bed which was more than enough for me. Unfortunately I found a couple hairs from... More

We were driving into Chicago and stayed here as it was East of Chicago and we would be getting in late. The place was nice - friendly staff and they made an effort to let us use the pool early so my son could have a swim before we left. It is only 30 minutes out of Chicago so it... More
