We got a deal on priceline. For this area it is alright a decent place and location to spend one or maybe two nights at. The room decor was a little dated and the bed was alright to sleep in. Room was clean it just needs some updating.

Stopped here for a night before heading on to Chicago in the morning. I tend to choose Fairfield Inns in these circumstances because they are pretty reliably clean and comfortable. After many hours in the car, the kids just wanted to get in the pool, but even they noticed how dirty and old the pool and hot tub were.

While I've never seem rooms or bathrooms so small in a Fairfield, the front desk staff and buffet attendants were excellent. Strange layout with the entrance almost an after thought this is a very oddly designed property. Rooms are smaller than most and bathrooms look like they were added after the fact, but the decor is fresh. If you're looking... More

You have to be careful at this Hotel with your Credit/Debit Cards. My Bank Listed my card as "Hot Card" soon after staying at this Hotel. The night Auditor kept charging my Debit Bank Card over 7 times! Make sure you get it in writing or print out your receipts. Always check your statements and Bank Cards after staying here!!!...

I had an early flight to Chicago and got to Merrillville Fairfield Inn tired and too early to check in. But the hospitality I got from the hotel was amazing as I was treated like a customer/guest by the staff at the front desk. He kept asking me "How can I make your experience at Fairfield memorable" repeatedly. That was... More

Clean and updated rooms. Front desk staff extremely welcoming and helpful. They remembered your name and greeted guests as they arrived or left. They really seemed to like their job. Great location to access I65. Many eating choices close by.

My son and I attended a Copa America match at Soldier Field in Chicago that started too late to allow us to safely drive back to Indianapolis.

I would not remodel but would call in the wrecking crew! Stayed there last week the breakfast was a joke including the construction dust! If we had a remodeled room then they should start over! The rooms are very small, the TV hardly got any channels and the bath room was the size of a porta potty!
