Were looking for a stayover spot around the bottom of Lake Michigan on our way to northern Michigan. Were not familiar with Merrillville. In retrospect maybe we should have tried to get further away from Chicago/Gary area. We were right next to an interstate which was loud, the hotel seemed to have a lot of commercial-oriented patrons vs. vacationers etc., and it was Friday night and there was a fairly loud party down the hall. Room was a bit worn and the beds not terribly comfortable. Overall not a really relaxing stay for the first night of our vacation trip.

Had to take small dog on vacation and Candlewood suites accommodated us with a first floor room for easy access to outside

The hotel did meet my expectations. Hot showers, cold air conditioning . Clean sheets.

The room was good and we used the kitchenette for our breakfasts. There was a good assortment of basic food items in the motel "cupboard". This saved us from finding a grocery and going out to pick up misc. items. The staff was very helpful and there when needed.

Everything was great. No problems.

We were in town for a huge soccer tournament and stayed at LaQuinta the previous night, also pet-friendly, down the street because it's where our team was staying. However, we discovered Candlewood had availability and switched immediately the following day. The rooms were beautiful: a handy kitchenette, comfortable beds, updated decorating/tv, and a great bathroom. The wood laminate floor in the kitchen area was great. Our puppy was sleeping the afternoon away while we hit the big mall/restaurants across the street, and the best part is the price was within $20 of our other hotel yet was so much better!
