The floors havent been swept in months - everything has dirt and sand on it. The hotel owners sit outside the whole time with their dogs and chainsmoke and...

Rude employees. Dirty bug filled rooms. Drunk foul mouthed maintenance man, will curse around your children at the pool. You will be charged for things you did not do, and the owner will not return any phone calls.. Do not stay here.

Just this last weekend we had to find a hotel at the last minute and we got stuck with this crap-hole. Horrible. We got a room on the lakefront...which sounded great till we walked down to it and opened the door. It stunk, outdated everything.. plastic patio furniture for tables, a small tv that was ancient, doors wouldn't close, dressers...

Location is great! We've been going to Indiana Beach for 25+ years, since our kids were young. We have tried to make it 2-3 times each year with our boys and their families. Mr. Biddle owned the property previously. When renting from Mr. Biddle, it was known that everything worked, was clean and all rules were posted and well known....

My husband and I wanted to go to Indiana Beach last minute and we called this place because it was recommended to us by the hotel that was full. The first room we looked at smelled like an old basement, and looked like it had never been improved on since it was built, and for this they charged 100 dollars...
