We have been here often and feel that it's the best value in an area filled with hotels. Away from highway noise with windows overlooking a stream and walkway. Breakfast available for a nominal cost. Indoor pool opens to the outside.

The reception people were great. From reading Trip Advisor, I knew what to ask for: facing the back, away from traffic noise, king-size bed, on the ground floor. The room was huge and the park with waterfall out back was lovely. Small biting flies were a nuisance in the evening. Room 131 had a fridge that was a huge junk... More

My first stay at Clarion Inn since it changed from Courtyard. Upon arriving which was after 3:00 pm I was told my room was not ready and I had to wait for 30 min. Their excuse was an employee called off. My room was at the far end in which I also could enter thru the end door. The entrance... More

But I just can't! I've been to this location a minimum of 5 times. Had a variety of different rooms on each side and each floor of the hotel. The first thing I'll note is the smell. I have yet to stay in a room that did not have a stench of mold! Every time, it never fails. If you... More

My first time at a clarion inn hotel. Loved the room. Beds were comfy, everything seemed to be clean. Nice pool area. Great service. Use Priceline for cheap rates, look at (express deals) and pick the 3 star hotel. Merrillville was great city to relax in.

This hotel was our family reunion hotel and it was a great short stay (it was just overnight). The staff was friendly and helpful, delivering amenities to our door quickly. It is family friendly, spacious and had wifi and a business center computer. Our room had a beautiful view of the water and the room was nice. It was a... More

Right off the highway and close to everything. I booked king with sofa sleeper because we actually use the sleeper on occasion. We've had bad experiences with them before. As we settled in, we checked out the sleeper and it was typically uncomfortable. What was awesome was the end result from the staff. Angie and crew brought in brand new... More
