Comfortable bed, great hot breakfast, great shower, plenty of room, clean and friendly. That is all I need and at a great price. It is very handy to the interstate and most amenities close. Indoor pool and hot tub.

We spent one night at the Clarion Inn in Merrillville, Indiana. We were driving through late at night and we're able to get a room. We have to say, for the price, it was a great stay! The room was impeccably clean and very spacious. It has been recently remodeled and was very nicely decorated. The beds were comfortable and...

Clean hotel with a very nice room. Breakfast was good with the bacon being crispy. Exercise machines need some updating and maintenance. No automatic doors as you walk inside and never did find the elevator so we ended up dragging the suitcases up the stairs. The walls are a bit thin since we could hear the couple in the next...

Really great hotel at reasonable rates. The rooms were comfortable, very new and clean, and attractive. The pool (and hot tub) area was clean and family friendly. The BEST part of our stay was the free breakfast. Without a doubt the best hotel breakfast we'd ever had. Will definitely be back to this hotel the next time we're in the...

I arrived at the hotel on 11/24 and requested to check-in early. The front desk clerked granted my request and finally got it right the 3x. The first room I walked into was occupied by a sleeping family, so I went back and informed her. She apologized and assured me the next room would be fine. The second desk clerk...

Only took 28 minutes to find bed bugs crawling on the wall beside the bed. Checked in on Nov 17th, 2016 at 10:40pm checked out at 11:08pm. When we went to the front desk to check out and get a refund the girl didn't even seem surprised. Not even an apology for our inconvenience!
