We stayed 2 nights for a weekend getaway, and chose a 2 queen bed suite. The suite has the extra sitting area, with a pull out couch, giving all 3 of us our own bed. A nice option for us, as we ranged in age from late 30's-mid 60's - and it's not always as comfy sharing a bed as it was when we were younger. :)
The room was spotless, and very little wear and tear. Our suite also had a mini fridge, microwave and coffee maker. The fridge didn't keep our things that cold, but it was adequate, and nice to have so we didn't have to keep everything in coolers. All of the decor is modern and the room was spacious.
The beds were comfortable - not too hard, and not too soft. Bedding was clean and crisp without being too "scratchy".
The pull out bed was what you would expect from a pull out. Obviously not as comfortable as a regular bed, but adequate and not horribly uncomfortable. It was clean and easy to make. Thankfully the legs that pop out are fairly far under the bed, so that anyone walking past the bed (when it's popped out), won't catch their bare toes on the metal legs. (I've done this plenty of times before, so felt that I should mention it.)
The bathroom was spacious, with a giant countertop. Excellent for sharing with 3 women. Towels were pretty scratchy and stiff...I appreciate the cleanliness of them, but they were pretty rough. I always bring an extra from home just in case of situations like this.
We never used the TV's, but they looked great. Also looks like it had an ipod stereo system in the sitting area. Not sure if that's what it was, and never used it, but if that's a a bonus for you, I think they have one.
The hot tub and pool were nice. Neither were very big, but it was well taken care of and a nice spot to relax.
The breakfast and the eating area were nice. All the basics of hotels that offer included breakfasts - cereal, muffins, bagels, hard boiled eggs, fruit cups, Jimmy Dean breakfast sandwiches, waffles, fruit, yogurt, oatmeal, milk, orange juice, apple juice. I thought the coffee was very good. It's available all day long. Tea and hot water available too. Different flavored creamers were nice to have too. Sufficient selection of food for breakfast. The woman who was running the breakfast area was very kind and "motherly". Very personable and polite.
Check in time is at 4:30, and we arrived at 5:45 and surprisingly, our room was not yet ready. (Check out time is noon.) The manager on duty kindly offered for us to get some coffee, and wait, as it was almost ready, and gave us a room discount for our wait. (Not sure what it was, as we also used a AARP discount, but we were anticipating on paying about $270 for 2 nights, and we ended up paying $240.)
We didn't use it, but there is a shuttle that goes to Four Winds Casino, with pick up/drop off times listed at the front desk. It's also about 20 minutes away from at least 10 great wineries, and 20 minutes from Michigan City, where there is outlet mall shopping and Blue Chip Casino.
We had a great time and felt safe and completely comfortable at this hotel. We plan on visiting this same hotel next year for our annual winery, shopping and casino weekend getaway. I wish that we would have found this place last year when we went. Last year we stayed at Blue Chip. Nice place, but so big, it took forever to get in and out of, and wasn't as clean, and was a LOT more expensive. I read that the average price for a hotel room in 2013 is $107/night. This place is right around that price, or a little more, depending on the night, or if it's a weekend - and well worth it. I don't require luxury when I stay at hotels, but I don't like to stay in dumpy places either. I loved the modern decor and feel of the hotel, and would check out any other Fairfield Inn and Suites from now on, just based on my stay here. We will be back, for sure!
