“One night stay”
Reviewed August 22, 2014

Just recently stayed overnight at this Inn while on our way to Chicago. Our room looked like it had been recently renovated, and was very clean. The staff were friendly, and the Inn offers free WIFI.
Not much in the way of facilities but a great place for an overnight stop. Close to 2 major highways, a great value.

Quiet Country Setting, just moments from two major thoroughfares, and Michigan City, Indiana. You can't beat the Kindness and Friendliness of the Owners and Staff. I've stayed by the week in other places, they may clean once in a week, they clean your room everyday.

My wife and I stayed here on vacation. We chose the motel for its location and low price. The good: staff let us in early to room; small, but clean and appealing room and bath; quiet even though on a busy road; tv, fridge and microwave in room. The not-so-good: a fairly long drive to dunes, casino, and city; uncomfortable mattress and pillow; unappealing tap water (my wife was less bothered by this); no cups, tissues, bar soap, or shampoo (dispenser did not work). Remodeling going on, but not bothersome.

My wife and I just left this motel after a 1 night stay with our little baby. The room wasn't big but big enough and it was clean. The staff was very friendly. We thought the motel was great for the price. We will definitely stay again if passing through.

Our family of four with a pet on a tight budget. This was the place to stay. The owners were super nice. We misplaced our shampoo and the owners gave us a big bottle. Our Labrador had plenty of space to stretch her legs and I enjoyed the appearance of the place. Although our room was tight for all of us, we were only needing a place to lay our heads because we visited a friend of mine and spent days at the Dunes in Indiana. We would come again.

Although remodeling was going on, this was a nice place to stay. It's out from the city and very quiet and cozy. Although small, the rooms are clean and don't smell. Great TV, fridge and microwave in the room. No hair shampoos or conditioners which was fine with me. Our room had only one queen size bed. I thought there would be two beds but it was ok for my daughter and I to sleep in the same bed. After shopping all day at the outlet mall, we headed for the hotel. We were so comfortable that we didn't even go out to dinner. Just picked up pizza and headed back to the hotel and ate and watched tv.

This is a nice, family-owned motel in a very quiet location 3 miles south of the highway. They are currently in the process of remodeling the rooms, so be aware that there may temporarily be some construction noise. My room had clearly been remodeled, and was quite nice. Everything was clean, the bed was very comfortable, and the quiet location made for a good nights sleep. This motel is dog friendly with a very large grassy area to run and play with the dog. However, dogs are not allowed in all the rooms (the owner says this is a Health Department rule) so call ahead to make sure they have a pet room available.
