“Good Enough”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

It cost about $100 booking through Hotels.com and honestly, it shouldn't be any more than that. Overall, it wasn't awesome, but if you need a good place to sleep with food, shopping and restaurants around you, then this will work. One downer for me is that there is only exit back onto the highway (that I found) and it takes about three red lights to finally get out of there because there is so much traffic. Maybe it was because it was a Saturday and it's next to a mall (not sure). The staff was helpful and the rooms were updated. Breakfast was your typical mid-range hotel setting, and it was decent. The noise level for us was good, but we weren't on the highway side. It also seemed pretty safe at night. Overall, I rate this is as a good place to stop and just get sleep.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the side opposite the highway.

We recently stayed at this hotel to attend a wedding. We were promised a group rate of $55. We got to the hotel around 5:00pm and were told that we had booked a room with two double beds (which isn't true) with a rate of $65 per night. We told the front desk agent that we booked a king bed at the rate of $55 per night. She told us that there "is a wedding party staying at the hotel" and they didn't have enough king rooms. She also said that they had oversold the king rooms by 6. We told her we were a part of the wedding party. She did absolutely nothing to help us, although she did change the rate to $55 (which is expected since that was the rate we were promised). We stayed the the clear other end of the hotel, which was no where near any of the wedding party, and it was very inconvenient. We were also told there was free wifi in the hotel, which is actually non-existent. When I called the front desk from the room they said that they had wifi, when I told them it wasn't connecting, they said they were having problems that they were "working on". The room we stayed in was remodeled, and the new fixtures were nice, but the walls were still dirty, the bathroom was disgusting (shower/tub was very dirty and there was mold growing behind the toilet). There was also hair on the floor and toilet seat when we got into the room. Overall, it was a terrible experience. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone, not even for the price.

The last time we stayed here a few years ago, it was not good but we heard that it was now better. That was wrong. The hallways were very dirty, the room itself was okay--not sparkling clean but not intolerable. However, there was a strong smell of smoke in the room all night. The breakfast area is very small and the selection is limited. When we complained about the smoke smell, the desk clerk said that the hotel was basically non-smoking...so then, where did the smoke smell come from????? We will not be staying there again.

My husband and I found the Merrillville LaQuinta Inn to be a very clean hotel with friendly staff. The Bright Side Breakfast was good. I would highly recommend this hotel and will stay there again whenever I'm in that area.
