Best Western Plus Laporte Hotel & Conference Center
Ranked #4 of 7 Hotels in LaPorte
Reviewed September 22, 2012

I found the Best Western Plus in LaPorte to be a fabulous place to stay. The rooms were decorated beautifully with everything one could ask for. The restaurant was superb with lots of variety in the menu and each item we ordered was absolutely delicious. The Rothers Bar was inviting with great music and a full assortment of beverages and food. It is a great place for conferences or weddings. I would highly recommend it.

We were coming home from Milwaukee to Cleveland, and stopped here as kind of a mid-way point. There were no towels in the pool area, and the pool was warmer than the hot tub! The room we booked said atrium view, and we got a view of the parking lot. Also, the room was FREEZING!! You turn the a/c off, and the room is stuffy. The a/c control has a little dial that has numbers on it, that usually lets you control how warm/cool it is. Not here. It's low, high or off. But, I didn't get chewed on by bedbugs, so I'm happy! :)

We stayed here 3 nights over Labor Day weekend for a wedding. The price was much lower than the other hotels, and for the price we paid we were very satisfied with the room. It's basic but it had everything we needed and everything looked clean. Beds were comfortable (we much prefer these beds over the very hard ones at the Holiday Inn Express in town). The free wifi worked great. We visited the bar in the hotel and there were actually a lot of people there. We didn't visit the pool.

My friends and I stayed here on friday for a birthday. We went to the jacuzzi and pool and had dinner in the bar in the hotel. everything was delicious! We had a room on the upper floor and the beds were amazing! I would love to have one of the beds! front desk was great in giving us the train schedule for south shore to go to chicago and printing us some other directions for the places we were going there. they really did help a lot. it was a fun weekend over all. thank you!

The hotel was very good in general. Two thigs that my family enjoyed the most was the pool that has an inside and a outside part. The second is that the restaurant is excellent. Two things to improve are the internet wireless connection. I had no signal in my room, I need to bring my computer close to the lobby in order to connect. The hotel fare is reasonable and the hotel is located close (30 min) to Indiana Dunes and Michigan City. The Pine Lake (1 block from the hotel) is beautiful.

Room Tip: There are rooms right next to the pool

We stayed 8/4/12-8/5/12 and this is a huge party place and full of children. Very Loud, our room 246 was clean but the 2 full size beds were Terribly uncomfortable.. My husband went out around 2 am into the hallway and saw a woman, drunk nearly passed out sleeping on her suitcase! Someone else was yelling to a bunch of partiers, "read the bible!" It was 116.00, not cheap.
The other complaint, you have to walk through unairconditioned hallways to get to your room, very unpleasant especially with 90+ degree temperatures.
If you like to get stinking drunk, and have bible thumpers yelling at you stay here. If you like to have many rug rats running around stay here.

Realizing this was a small midwestern town my expectations weren't huge, but they were not met even at that. The hotel front desk staff was very helpful and friendly; the property itself was not well kept up or maintained. Lots of maintenance is needed. The rooms are a bit rundown and not particularly clean. The hotel access to the rooms is all indoor, but there is no climate control, so the humidity and heat were terrible in the halls and common areas. I wouldn't recommend it.
