Reviewed 11 July 2015

Based on the info book in the room, this property used to be a Courtyard by Marriott. It does not look like a typical Choice property. The lobby was a massive, rather dramatic two story room with a larger than usual dining area. Hallway was a bit twisty and not the typical straight off the lobby. Our room was also...

We are a very unique hotel in Merrillville, offering a nice little oasis and getaway from the standard square, parking lot hotels in the area. Beautiful grounds, ponds, waterfall, and our swim out indoor/outdoor pool is amazing. Thank you so much for staying with us! Please come see us again.

We booked online thru Priceline about 2 hrs before we checked in and it was by far the smoothest Priceline transaction I have had. The desk agent (Edward/ Edmond?) was very welcoming and eager to help in any way he could. Stayed one night in a King suite. The hotel is a little bit dated, but our room was clean,...

This hotel is old, dated, and not clean. I had disgusting stained bedding and pillows (until I asked for a second set), and and old and deeply uncomfortable bed. Breakfast is not free if you book through Hotwire and Priceline, but it did not look very appealing anyway. It is just a very tired hotel in need of a complete...

Very comfortable place to stay for our one night stay. Only thing that keeps it from a 5 star rating is that for the cost, I am not sure why breakfast was not included. Otherwise, I highly recommend it.

Thank you for staying with us! We offer very competitive rates online, which is why we do not include breakfast in those rates. There are numerous packages and options that you can choose from through several websites and choice hotels. You will not find better service, or a nicer property in the area at those prices!

I don't know what's wrong with the people that are complaining about picky little things on here, they aren't staying at a luxury hotel. Clarion Inn is supposed to be the lower end of the choice Hotel chain, but, for the price, this is one of the nicest I have stayed in and I have stayed in over 100 hotel...

Using a discount website, got a room here for a good price. Do not pay full rate for this place. It is convenient to Star Plaza and the highways, but it is not a plush hotel. They had someone else in our room when we checked in. Fortunately, the desk clerk discovered it before we walked in on someone. Clean...

We spent 1 night on our way through town. It was nice and mostly clean. My only (very minor) complaint is about some brown stuff on the desk when we walked in the room.

Got a very good deal using Express Deal on Priceline to stay a night at the Clarion Inn.
