2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel was near the highway. I was happy with how quiet the hotel was. Nothing worse than waking up to slamming doors.

We attended a notre dame fame and the south bend area was booked solid. This Location was close to major roadways . The staf was outstanding Sophia welcomed us snd made us all feel right at home !!! If we ever have to go back to that atea .. We will go directly to the Hampton inn !! Thank you !

The staff at this hotel was very friendly and helpful. I have to say the lady that runs the breakfast area in the mornings has to be the sweetest and hardest working breakfast attendant I have ever seen in any of the hotels I have ever stayed in. She made sure everyone had what they needed, all the breakfast items were available and fresh, all tables were nice and clean when someone got up for the next person sitting down and she also came around to get your plates for you when you were done eating. I hope they pay her what she is worth, she deserves it for that kind of service.:)

The room at the Hampton Inn Portage Indiana was lovely - beautiful decor, very cosy easy chair and very comfortable bed. And the breakfast provided a good selection of hot and cold items. I would definitely stay at the Hampton Inn again!

overall experience was pretty good. sure there were some things that I was disappointed with - they were minor in nature , but overall it was fine. I would stay there again if I had too.

Very comfortable and the breakfast at Hampton is always a plus.

Nice hotel with great staff. Continental breakfast was good. There was plenty of food, and choices. The lady that ran the hospitality area was very friendly and helpful. Room was clean and they even had put a roll away in our room before our arrival. (we had previously requested it- but had been informed it was on a first come basis. Pool was large enough for the kids to have plenty of room to have fun.

Easy on off highway and good dining options close at hand.

We enjoyed the clean accommodations. Hotel was a 10 minute drive from Lake Michigan. Enjoyed our stay.

We were staying a weekend to go to nearby beaches of Lake Michigan; I was very pleased with hotel (price to quality) particularly comfortable room, friendly staff, breakfast offered, and location.

Very clean comfortable rooms. Staff very friendly. Breakfast was great!

My husband and I stayed in the Hampton Inn Portage for two nights during our visit to the Indidana Dunes. (Our first weekend away from our 1 year old son.) My review of the hotel: The front desk staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful at all times. The rooms were nice enough, clean, etc. The pool was small and cool, which would not have mattered except we came back from the dunes early b/c the water was so cold there, and thought about hanging out in a heated pool, except it wasn't really heated. Overall, our stay was great would stay in a Hampton again. My review of the dunes: My husband and I traveled from Cincinnati on Friday, August 14-Sunday 16 to visit the dunes. We were quite disappointed in the "best beaches this side of Florida." I'm not sure what I was expecting, but the dunes did not hit the mark. There are no accomodations on the beaches (unless you stay in a beach house or something.) We stayed in Portage and the hotels were about 10 minutes drive. Driving through old run down industrial areas was not the scenic route I expected to the dunes. Once we got to the dunes, we had to park in a parking lot and walk pretty far to get to the beaches. We visited Central Beach, Mt. Baldy, West Beach, and the State Park Beach - the walk to the beach was worse in some places than others, but pretty much the same story, different beach. The highlight of our trip was taking a train into Chicago Saturday afternoon and spending the day there. The water was very cold. We got in, but only b/c we had walked the beach for an hour and were hot. If it is not super hot, the water will be very cold. My recommendation would be, if you are traveling more than 1-2 hours, the dunes are not the place to go, you can probably find a similar beach at a lake closer to you. It was definitely not worth the 5 hours it took to get there, and I don't think we will be revisiting any time soon... Chicago yes, the dunes, no.
