was ok. Room was clean and well maintained, which is the most important thing! The lady doing breakfast REALLY cared about breakfast and it ended up great... I can't stress this enough; best breakfast cook at ANY hotel I have ever been to. (she was on everything, including customer portions. she deserves a hella raise) The cons were the staff who may or may not have been zombies, I didn't check. The counter lady was useless to the point of actually making life more difficult. I will forgive the construction. I cant forgive me getting a double instead of my confirmed king room though, that the front desk refused to even look at or take money off of, or the day early I clocked out because I couldn't sleep there and I am guessing I won't get refunded for either. The front desk was so ignorant that it was borderline criminal.

great! Try it! definitely a lot more welcoming on the inside than the outside. The construction it was taking was barrel noticeable

Friendly staff. Older hotel but has been renovated. No breakfast but close to where we needed to be.

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.

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.

Clean and good value. I would recommend to business travelers

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Hotel was ok, I think it is a older Hotel so it didn't seem very nice for the cost.

I found the hotel very clean and quiet. It is somewhat out of the way, but since I am from the area I had no problem locating it. Access is off the main roads.

It was a very wonderful hotel. The only reason why I booked there was because my husband was booked there for an oritation for a new job he got. I did it as a suprise for him. I loved the room. It was a very nice roo,. It was perfect. This is one of the better hotels of Indiana!!!!!

While the location was not ideal being located along a sort of dark, winding road and near a strip club, the motel itself was clean, the room nicer than I expected.
