We've spent several nights over the years in LaPorte because it is a good stopping point on our road trips across I-80. Usually have stayed at the very mediocre (but ok) Holiday Inn across the street. A waitress at T-bones restaurant gave us a tip about the Blue Heron. Glad we stayed here on our return trip. The hotel is less expensive than the Holiday Inn-- also cleaner. The best part was the the patio facing the lake. Very peaceful room with a jacuzzi as well. The varied reviews on trip advisor are surprising given our very positive experience. The hotel should advertise more because it is a nice change from a banal Holiday Inn.
