“Unromantic, but a fine cheap night stay.”
Reviewed August 14, 2009

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel for one night after leaving Chicago very late one night. This is a good place to stop not too far from the city so as to not deal with the downtown traffic during the morning commute. Merrillville is certainly not the romance capital of the world (you're not going to find any very fancy hotels here), but this hotel was certainly your average joe kind of place. We had no problems with our late check-in, the room was clean, all the appliances worked, and check-out was fast and efficient. It did seem a little pricey at $65 a night for a queen bed, although that seems to be the going rate these days. I didn't have any problems with this hotel.

My wife and I came to Merrillville to visit our daughter for the week-end. She lives in a one-bedroom apartment, so we had to find other accommodations for Saturday night. We had never been to Extended Stay America, so were pleasantly surprised to find that the room was clean and well cared for, the woman at the reception desk was very friendly and helpful, and the location was only a few miles from our daughter. There was no continental breakfast as in some locations, but we never use them as we go out for breakfast.. Being an efficiency room, my wife especially liked the fact that there was a refrigerator so we could chill some beverages that we had brought along. We will definitely stay here again in the future.

On first view the room looked great .. but it was really only just OK when you looked closely. Good facilities as it had fridge/freezer, microwave and cooker hob in a separate kitchen area and the room itself was large. Only thing that spoilt it was the upstairs neighbours having a row at 4am in the morning and the floors and walls seemed to be paper thin so we could hear every footstep and we were woken up and couldnt get back to sleep again.. thankfully the staff threw the people out!

We stayed here the night before my husband’s interview. The room was extremely basic, but was very clean and kept up and it also had a kitchenette. It was a good value for the price. Also there are a lot of shopping and dinning nearby.

We enjoyed our stay. Especially pleased we could have our small dog stay with us, for a minimal charge. Staff was friendly and apologized for the inconvenience of remodeling. Room was clean, had no dog odors or smells. Had adequate space to walk the dog. Good value for the price. Will stay again when we visit the area next year. E & D, Stillwater, Mn.

  • Liked — Cleanliness and my pet could stay.
  • Disliked — nothing really,small inconvenience of coffee pot dripping.

My boyfriend and I were driving cross-country and decided to stay at a hotel outside of Chicago. The drive into the city from this location was 45 minutes, but we needed a cheap hotel with an open room.

The property seemed safe and quiet; we didn't see any "shady" people lurking around.

My boyfriend had no problem with the room, but I thought the bathroom was disgusting! The floor did not look clean (there was hair and a few coins) and the tub did not look like it had been scrubbed. The carpet was a dark green, so I couldn't tell whether it had been vacuumed, but I didn't want to take the chance, so I laid down towels to walk on.

Booked the hotel via priceline, so got a low price, and this hotel met our needs for 1 night (after a Jimmy Buffett concert in Tinley Park, about a 1/2 hour away).

They have limited house-keeping and service (front desk closed at 11 pm), but was fine for our needs. Has a kitchenette with fridge, microwave, coffee pot, sink). The bed was fine, although only 2 pillows for 2 people in a queen bed. The shower pressure was great, although they could have fixed some plaster damage for appearance's sake. Oh, BYO-shampoo.

We got a good night's sleep, as the hotel was quiet - located in a hotel park near a mall, shopping, restaraunts, etc. A few blocks off the congested I-65/US 30 area. For the price and location, it was just what we needed and nothing more.
