The room was older, and definitely had seen a lot of wear and tear. The refrigerator was so loud that we unplugged it for for the night. Not that the hotel staff have much control over their guests, but we were awakened all night by loud talking, pounding on doors, and running up and down the hall. Since we were...

The room is not fancy, but clean and with all the amenities. No annoying noises or air conditioners that constantly kick on and off. The bed was fairly comfortable. Breakfast was ok... typical of this class of hotel, with a couple of hot items and all the usual. Hotel staff was friendly and helpful. Overall, not a "wow", but perfectly...

Clean room, courteous staff, and a hot breakfast with low fat protein. This hotel is not fancy or luxurious, but it's good for a comfortable and convenient overnight stay. Rooms include a small microwave and refrigerator, free parking, and basic amenities. It's fairly quiet, but a bit of interstate noise permeates all of the rooms. The small bathroom is barely...

I stayed here on a business trip with a large group. Check in was very fast. Front desk staff were very friendly. Plenty of parking for large vehicles. The room was very clean with a comfortable bed. The pool are was nice with warm water. I would definitely stay here again when in the area.

Since the summer 2016 remodel, this hotel is awesome and if you are using Marriott points, you will be even more amazed. Rooms are well decorated and clean. The breakfast bar is good and the staff friendly. Really convenient to I 65 and US 30. Some traffic noise but not terrible.

My husband I stayed here for 2 nights to visit the Indiana Dunes nearby. We got a great deal and stayed for 50% off the standard rate. Staff was super nice, we arrived in town 3 hours early and they let us check-in without a problem. The place was clean and carpet looked new. Loved the pillows! Downside to our...

This is an old style FI. They have updated the rooms with new furnishing with a fridge and micro. The rooms are very small. The bathroom is tiny. For a quick overnight this worked out OK but I would not stay in such a small space for a long period. Breakfast was typical FI fare. No fresh oatmeal station though.

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...
