“Fun Stay!”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

It was my husbands Birthday and we decided a night at Blue Chip might be fun. It was! We stayed at the original part of the hotel ( they have a new tower hotel on the property) it was clean, nicely furnished and only down the hallway to the casino and restaurants. We played video poker and slots and did pretty good. We ate at the Game, sports like restaurant, great food and lots of it. Fantastic staff! We would recommend Blue Chip and plan on going again.

We stayed here because we went to a Notre Dame game. We were given a smoking room (we don't smoke). The room smelled horrible but they stated they didn't have any other rooms. The cleaning staff (Heather) was wonderful. She loaned us her spray bottle of Febreeze and that seemed to help mask the smell.

I was familiar with Michigan City, and was aware that the location was a fair bit off the interstate with few places within walking distance. However, we still decided to spend the night on our way home from a roadtrip. I booked last minute from the car, and we ended up in the older portion of the hotel. I must admit, I was expecting much worse. The rooms were dark, but have been nicely updated and were clean and spacious. The shower is fantastic! It was also very quiet, which isn't always the case at casino hotels. The staff is all very friendly as well, from check-in, to buffet service to valet. Very well trained, so kuddos to them.
We only stayed the one night, so had just enough time to walk around, have dinner at the buffet (skip it!) and throw some money at the slots.
I may have been more disappointed if I had booked for the weekend, but it worked perfectly for what we needed. The rate was $90 for a Thurs evening in Oct, and worth it in our minds.

17th floor in Spa Tower awesome! The service and everything fantastic as usual. Comfy beds which you need to have. Only thing could not watch the Bears game in the room. Fox was not working. Tim the host is the best. He is so nice and accommodating. Had a great time and going back for the Legends concert next week!

SPA TOWER IS VERY DIFFERENT FROM OLDER PART.
Last year i stayed in spa tower. It was lovely ....last weekend i couldn't get a room there so i took a room for two nights in the original part flu chip tower..Uhh...dull, dreary, adequate etc, not what i was expecting. I asked for a room change for Sunday night, i knew my request was falling on deaf ears of the disinterested receptionist...she told me she would do her best and call me she didn't....no surprise. I wrote them off there and then...room was grubby around edges, shower was dirty around seals, uhh. Wasn't helped by conversation back to room on Saturday when two other patrons told me their rooms were freebies. In summary i was looking for something soothing and relaxing...i got tired and dull, with deaf ears...may be if all you want is Casino, nightlife, and good buzz,.,byebye blue chip, good location for beach, outlets and short drive to dunes and zoo.

Well, it doesn't help that I really don't have any desire to go to the casino, so the location wasn't anything special to me. Partly because of the need for the casino to route people in a manner that encourages gambling and partly because of the age of the place, the walk from the parking lot to the room was really long. That was annoying. The A/C was a bother, again being a bit aged, because of it's noise and temperament.

I couldn't find any wireless / internet access in the room... maybe I didn't try quite hard enough, but that's not really the point of something that is so common in even the tiniest of hotels these days.

The other thing that detracts from the experience was the cost and the process involved. We were in town for a wedding and despite being on a group rate, we found that it would have been cheaper to book on our own through the internet. It's rather disappointing to have someone go through so much trouble as to select and work with a hotel, only to have little to no advantage.

I will not stay in this hotel again, no matter the convenience factor.

This is the 2nd time we've stayed here in 3 months & the 2nd time the internet was broken. Planned on a working weekend., we had to leave early again as the staff said the problem had been on and off for awhile & doubted it'd be fixed anytime soon. This seems to be a reg. occurrence here. Management seemed put out. Rude, Plus, there isn't any one person to complain to. No one in charge. There were no offers to make up for the problem..not even a buffet coupon. After spending a LOT of money gambling, would expect a bit of empathy on their part. They're more concerned with the private conventions that were going on than the individual guests. Couldn't even get the burnt out lights in the room fixed. Will never stay again. They had a rotten, uncaring attitude.

Room Tip: Book as far in advance in possible. Hard to get the room type, like No smoking, even booking a month...
