“Don't believe it.”
Reviewed September 20, 2010

The website for this hotel list amenities that are not true. No microwaves, no refrigerators, nothing. We took breakfast food for the little ones with us only to find we couldn't store it. Don't know whose lobby is pictured but it is definitely not this property. If you go down to the lobby for coffee be prepared to see the desk clerk sitting on the coffee counter talking to their friends. Rude at check out. Dingy and dirty outside. Lumpy pillows, squeaky beds. If you rolled over the bed squeaked so loud it could wake up the next room. A lot of the restaurants listed as nearby are closed. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone unless I really hated them.

We were in town for a concert at the nearby Star Plaza Theatre. The location of the Red Roof Inn was perfect in relation to the Theatre and I-65; it was also convenient for us to find a place to eat and rest up before the concert. We will definitely stay here again as the need arises.

Our only problem was with the air conditioning unit...it blew freezing cold air when the AC was on and stuffy air when we tried using just the fan. There didn't seem to be a happy medium. We also noticed an AC unit in a room on the first floor was leaking onto the sidewalk.

This hotel was very dirty. My wife was wearing white sox and walked across the carpet to the bathroom. They were black after crossing the floor.

I was there for a Dog Competition, and will be returning later this fall. I have never stayed at a Red Roof before & it was great. Check In was very busy with all of the other Dog owners their. The manager Janie came out and delivered these little bags with dog treats and they had a welcome letter, not to the people, but to the pets. It was so cute and thoughtful, everyone was talking about them. She kept all of us laughing!!

Was passing through Merrillville on the way to Indiana and we just needed an inexpensive place to sleep for the night. Did not sleep a wink all night. Beds were hard and uncomfortable. Bathroom so tiny you could hardly turn around in it (although this is pretty much standard for this grade hotel, I believe). Room was hot and when we tried to turn the fan on, it was too noisy and annoying to leave on. Close to the freeway so could hear cars zooming by all night long. The complimentary coffee was like drinking dishwater it was so bad. Although this was supposed to be a non-smoking hotel, the check-in office reeked of cigarette smoke. Staff quite unfriendly... not sure where they found them, but I guarentee it was not at the local university.
On the flip side, I did get a good hot shower. We like having a "drive up to your door room" (ie no interior corriders). Price was reasonable for what we paid. Wi-fi was free. There's a Dunkin Donuts 1.5 miles up the road with awesome coffee.

We arrived in Merrillville IN for a friends birthday. Our shower did not have a liner so our bathroom floor got all wet. The biggest complaint I have is that the wall AC/Heat was not useful at all. I am a sleeper that needs a fan on. I turned the fan on and after like 30 min it would automatically shut off and be extremely hot in the room, then I would turn the fan on then it would be too cold, If the wall ac's/heaters were updated like the rooms it would be alot more pleasant. I had to keep getting out of bed to fix the fan/heat. I think the hotel needs to update its wall ac's/heaters. The room was okay in general. It was ok for $55 a night. It served its purpose as just a place to sleep.
