Recent guest reviews

hotel overall- old but clean staff- friendly free breakfast- crowded room, good selection though. room- clean, good view of lake, comfortable beds, however noisy at night! train passes by every 10-15 min all night long, blowing their horns like theres no tomorrow!! Geese from lake add to the noise, room was not sound proof. we stayed on a saturday, not sure if this happens on weekdays. if youre a light sleeper, i wont recommend this place.

Nice hotel nestled behind a shopping area alongside a pretty lake with geese, ducks and swans! Hotel is comfortable and accomodating and we appreicated the accessible room. Lacks and elevator however. Enjoyed the breakfast as well.

Went to the local casino nearby in New Buffalo, MI. Hotels in that area were very pricey. Went to have dinner in Chesterton and found this hotel near our restaurant. Very clean and spacious inside. Large indoor pool. Has a hot tub/sauna but they were not operating at the time. Room very comfortable with king size bed. Has a small bar there to buy drinks in the evening, which we enjoyed by the open lobby area with the view of the lake. Staff very friendly and breakfast had several choices. Would stay again if in the area.

Our family enjoyed our weekend getaway at this hotel. The place was very pleasant and super close to the Dunes, it had an easy access to the road and the hotel has a pond behind it, which was nice. The staff was pleasant and helpful, although it seems like our sheets weren’t changed before we arrived, other than that our room was clean. It was quiet at night except a few times where the train would be heard. The breakfast was nice and hot but there weren’t too many choices. The pool was well maintained and clean. There are good places to eat around the area and the city of Valparaiso is nearby if you want more of a dining or shopping experience. -M.B.

This motel is in the right place for our trips into Indiana. It seems to us that it get better all the time.

Everything went smoothly and was very pleasant. Good night of sleep and a hot shower. The eggs were spongy but it filled my stomach. I would stay there again.

Clean and nice stay. Breakfast just ok. Good size rooms

Great staff that gave warnings in event of in moving bad weather and looked out for the safety of guests.

everyone was very friendly, from the front desk to the woman who cleaned the rooms... the woman who cleaned the rooms, even though we didnt have our room cleaned all three nites made sure we had everything we needed, and were extremely friendly, and also the day we were leaving one offered to help carry our luggage, and other belongings to our vehicle... which thought was very nice...definately will return...

Everything was perfect staff helped with everything

The facility is good, showing a little wear, but a great place to stay. Location is good. A little bit away from the highway is appreciated. The breakfast selection included an item that wasn't great, but that was one among several very good items. Adequate convenient electrical outlets in the room is a plus for contemporary travelers. Peace - Karl.

The location was just right for us. Many choices for food, good access to the beautiful features of the lakeshore. Though within a congested area, the facility has some pleasant natural views and features.

I was booking a king size bed and roll in shower room, but I got a room which has 2 double beds and garbage from last guests. when I check out I ask the staff she looks unhappy and said "I thought we can give you whatever room we have". They totally make my day.

Comfortable room. Nice pool and spa. Easy access to local businesses. A pleasant bit of a posh feel.

This is the third time we have stayed at this motel for ND football weekends. The rooms have always been clean; the hot breakfasts have been good; and, the staff very friendly.

good food good drink and European market on Saturday morning. we had a good time and have reservations for Sept 21 looking forward to the 5% discount thank you Ray Durbin

Overall, the hotel was comfortable and acceptable. The pictures were not accurate to the experience. The hotel is older and in need of renovation and updating. Lake pictured is a man-made lake overshadowed by McDonald's sign. The jacuzzi is an above ground add-on. The facility shows signs of age and wear. Breakfast was very good. It was an acceptable experience but not what I expected.

we were given a smoking room after requesting a regular room. Staff was very unhelpful and our room was not changed.

Several times per year we make the trek from Minnesota to Michigan to visit with family. We like to split the trip by staying overnight somewhere along the way. This is usually accomplished by looking for signs along the road but this year we booked through [...]and stumbled onto the Best Western Indian Oak hotel in Chesterton, IN. We were unfamiliar with this hotel but it had many good reviews and was one of the few hotels that still had available rooms.We were very happy with our decision to stay here. It was conveniently located to the interstate and had plenty of dining options within a very short distance. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our rooms were clean and comfortable. The atmosphere in the hotel was very nice and very comfortable. Breakfast was similar to other breakfast offerings of other hotels, but met our needs.Very good value for the money. Not the Ritz, but that wasn't what we were looking for either.
