The hotel was quite nice. It is rather new, so you would expect things to not be in too much disarray yet. The rooms were nice, the lobby was nice, the staff were nice. The location was very ODD. It was kind-of like a hotel stuck in the middle of an old, broken down truck lot. There were broken, old trucks surrounding the property--really unsightly. If I didn't know we were in Indiana, I would have thought it was part of some Disneyworld themeing or something--it just seemed so out of place for such a nice hotel. The freeway is very close. And it is out in the middle of absolutely NO WHERE. Really.
We stayed here to go to Washington Park on Lake Michigan for a few days. Michigan City is a cute little city. It is a lot longer of a drive from LaPorte to Michigan City than one would think and there is NO where to eat in LaPorte. The drive into Michigan City was unpleasant to us. I love that Hampton provides a breakfast. (Everyone should do that.) I liked the cleanliness of the rooms.
One other odd thing to mention. We didn't think we were there on a particularly busy night, but when we returned from dinner, we could not find a place to park in the hotel parking lot. And since it is in the middle of no where, there really is no where else to park. It thought it was really odd that they seem to have such a small parking lot--or maybe we were there on a night were there were a lot of big vehicles taking up more than their fair share of spots, but we had to ask the receptionist to ask a guest to move their vehicle so we could park our car!
Over all, we did not have a bad experience here, but because we stayed to go to Lake Michigan, I would think a while before choosing LaPorte Hampton again. Next time, I'd like to choose something closer to or in Michigan City.
