Being close to downtown Chicago is just one of the many reasons guests keep returning to this convenient, affordable Hammond hotel. Casinos like Horseshoe, Ameristar, and Majestic I and II are also in the neighborhood. If you need a Hammond hotel that's close to the BP Refinery in Whiting, the Ford Plant, or the steel mills like Arcelor Mittal and US Steel, you're in luck. We're right on a major 80/94 corridor, so it's easy to zip around the neighborhood. Lakefront activities are a perfect way to pass the time. Guests at this Hammond hotel get to experience the natural beauty of the region. The Pierogi Fest in Whiting is a popular attraction. The South Shore Air and Water Show is another annual event that draws in guests from around the country. Guests of this Hammond hotel are often in town to check out the Festival of Lakes or Gary South Shore Railcats. We also welcome visiting professors and families that are in town to check out the local campuses. Both Purdue University Calumet Campus and IUN Northwest campuses are just a short drive away. Business travelers especially adore this Hammond hotel. Regular guests are employees of the casinos, BP Refinery, and steel mills.

Average Best Western, nice rooms

Just off Interstate 80. Location is convenient to the freeway, but you will have to drive to go anywhere. Rooms are large and comfortable with good wifi, comfortable beds, microwave and fridge. They have a bar and restaurant on-site. Overall, OK., about what you would expect.

The hotel was exactly what I needed a cheap place to stay that was bearable. I was there for four days and the staff was fine.

Smells like stale cigarettes.

The location is right off the highway near a strip club, its not as bad as it sounds but its not great. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful and the rooms seemed clean. The big problem we had is this place used to allow smoking and many of their rooms are former smoking rooms which caused instant asthma attack, the hallways also smell like stale smoke. We did manage to get switched to a room that seems to always have been non smoking but big warning that many rooms smell like smoke.

Hard to find

The hotel is fine, but due to a bridge collapse and subsequent road closure, my GPS had me detouring through some very scary industrial areas that looked like refineries late at night. Here's hoping the get the road open again soon.

Look elsewhere

For $114 a night, you'd expect a little bit more. This is an old, tired hotel. No breakfast. Slow internet. Shampoo and liquid soap in dispensers in the shower. Really tacky. The TV had to be 10 years old. You can stay at the Super 8 next door for $41 a night.

Short overnight stay

Our hardest problem was finding the place even with our GPS! The road looked like it was going no where! But once there--the room was great, clean, quiet, comfortable. Staff were friendly! We did order a pizza from one of the local joints that delivers and this MUST be noted. I don't recall the name of the place but they have their menu in the resource book in the room. DO NOT ORDER from this place! It took 1 1/2 hours for the worst pizza to arrive.

Just ok

The receptionist was friendly and accomidating. The lobby seemed to be filled with people just hanging around taliking loudly. It was like they had no place to go. my room was ok. nothing special. however the shower was not working well. I mentioned this to the receptionist. she gave a key to the repair man while i was there. i assumed he would go and fix it since he wasn't doing anything else. However, next day. shower is still not working well. For the money you pay for a room there, i would expect a lot more. i won't go back.

friendly hotel by the highway

I was there for a quick visit with friends and family in the NW Indiana area. This is the second time I've stayed at this hotel, and I hope to do so again during future visits. It's a friendly, affordable hotel right off the main highway. Nothing fancy or extravagant, but good service and a comfortable room at a fair price. Hotel restaurant serves a hearty, inexpensive breakfast.

Nice motel off the highway

Clean, affordable, friendly, and comfortable hotel for those on the road or looking for a nice play to stay while in the Calumet Region. Only noticeable problem was cigarette smoke making its way into a non-smoking room. Would much prefer a non-smoking floor/wing rather than rooms alternating smoking and non-smoking on the same wing. Location requires accessing a side service road to get to the BW and a cluster of other motels. Nice little restaurant/coffee shop with big, inexpensive breakfasts. My visit coincided with a huge snowstorm that covered everything with ice & snow. Somehow when I walked out the hotel in the a.m., I found that my rental car and other vehicles had been cleared of snow & ice. I asked the girl at the desk if someone had done everyone that huge favor, and she kinda smiled and said maybe it just melted off and politely declined my tip.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

For great thin crust pizza, the House of Pizza on Indianapolis Boulevard in Hammond is first rate. For great old fashioned hamburgers, the Miner-Dunn restaurant on Indianapolis Boulevard in Highland is highly recommended (orange sherbet comes with each burger platter -- and don't forget the vegetable soup).
