Econo Lodge Chesterton

1.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Clean, but amenities and breakfast skimpy. No in room coffee, no hot breakfast. Good TV and wifi.

Very pleasant except microwave didn't work in my room.

Safe place, decent rooms for the price, clean rooms n neat beds.

We were looking for a clean place to crash that was pet friendly. This filled the bill. Their free breakfast was nothing much but the helpfulness and courteousness of the staff made up for that. I needed directions to a nearby event and the staff not only explained to me two ways to get there they also pulled up a map.

Bathroom ceiling was water damaged and looked as if it would cave in any moment.

The room was small, clean and pretty, it was comfortable, though I like a very firm bed so not all may agree about the comfort. It did need a bit of airing out when we arrived, and the neighbouring business was a little loud at times, but not enough to bother us, and once the window was closed again we didn't hear anything. The reception clerk was very friendly and helpful. It was low cost so nothing fancy, but we would stay there again.

I needed a place to stay in the Chesterton area for one night. This motel functioned very well for me. Nice. clean. It is located near a significant intersection of major highways, as well as near other services. It is not posh. Breakfast is quite basic. The price is right.

The motel met my need for a problem free one night stay that was part of a larger trip.

The motel met my needs very well. It was not posh, but clean and efficient. The breakfast was minimal, but satisfactory. The price was good, and met the brand name of the motel.

The toilet is higher and there were multiple cheap chairs set around the room. It was also the closest to the front desk. The two pillows on the bed did not match. One was plump and the other was thin and smelled like it had never been washed. I brought it to the front desk and was promptly given a better pillow with a clean pillow case. The breakfast was sad. I must say that the young man working the desk was very helpful with any problems that arose. But I couldn't wait to get out of there in the morning. Mom always says that you get what you pay for. I wanted an inexpensive place near the Blue Chip Casino. It was.
