A perfect oasis on the drive down south for Wisconsin. Friendly staff, excellent clean room, excellent clean towels, hot water in the shower, and a delicious breakfast with a huge selection of food choices in the morning. The bed & pillows were comfortable allowing for a good night sleep.

Good hotel for the money. It is priced a lttile lower than most of the national chain hotels in Merrillville. Room was larger than most and very clean. Frig and microwave in the room. Toilet paper a little cheap and Kleenex was nowhere to be found. We did not have breakfast as it is not included; but the free breakfast...

I'd consider staying here again because I got a great discount through Travelocity, but there were some basics which could be improved upon. No cable, only broadcast. Switching between channels was a challenge with the remote. Luckily I knew the Chicago broadcast channels so I wasn't't lost. No sleep function. It took a long time after the breakfast buffet was...

At check in there were no rooms available. I requested a first floor room (at reservation) because of a knee injury and was told that I could not have one unless I waited three or four more hours. It was already 4:00 pm. I asked about breakfast at check in and was told it was pay only and that I...

We were at the mercy of Hotwire.com, just needed a decent place to stay in NE Indiana as it was a good location for a stop on our family roadtrip. Happy to say we were pleasantly surprised.

2nd stay here. Last time we stayed it was a courtyard but they have changed the name. Regardless it was just as good. Clean and friendly. Close to highway. Wish they had a free breakfast. Right now I believe their breakfast buffet is $11. Free coffee and fridge in room which is very nice.

Arrived at 5pm on Sunday. There was just one old church van in the parking area. There was no indication the hotel was functioning. Upon entering, the front desk staff was helpful with a quick checkin. We were given a room in the 2nd floor. We had 4 heavy luggages. We went around looking for elevator. Couldn't find one. Asked...

Great experience at the hotel/lodge. I booked a 3-night stay at this hotel. I got a great price through a discount sight and ran into a problem with the reservation.
