Recent guest reviews

Room was clean, staff was friendly but the pillows not very comfortable...

The first thing noticed was all the signs about not smoking on the premises or you would be asked to leave the hotel. I thought this was good considering I or my wife don't smoke. The next thing I noticed when we went to our room, was the strong odor of cigarette smoke in our "non-smoking" room in the "non-smoking" hotel. The room appeared clean, and the bed was comfortable. Staff was friendly and accommodating considering how many people were checking in at 10 PM. Breakfast was average, with the dining area a little small for guests. The hotel itself is set back off the road quite a ways, and I was a little concerned about safety of my vehicle, but the parking lot was well lit. I would have recommended the hotel, but the cigarette odor was pretty unpleasant.

Good value for the money quiet clean location accessible and close to the dunes Breakfast OK but area is too small however. Only 3 tables.

Welcoming and comfortable. Traveling with two teenagers. Denny's next door. Close to I94.

-Not a good location, off main road behind a closed worn down restaurant, can't see from main road except for their sign, it felt like in middle of nowhere -they recently became smoke free (in July I think), but my room still had smoke smell that gave me headache, they were completely booked so I could not move -during my stay, there were lot of truckers staying there (18 wheelers) -bathroom ceiling was in bad shape on one side, could not get water out of faucet at tub, just the shower -unsecured wifi worked fine -staff was friendly

This hotel was just right. It was in between Chicago and New Buffalo. We could visit either way and still see the National Dunes Lakeshore that was 2 miles down the road.

We chose this hotel during our visit to the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. It was probably the worst hotel I have stayed in. The whole place smells. Our room had a slanted bed, so we asked for another room. The front desk gave us another room. The furniture in both rooms was badly damaged. The mattresses were thin and the pillows were of poor quality. The continental breakfast was limited and was only available until 9am on a Sunday. On the plus side, there was fast free WiFi. Overall, I would never stay in this hotel again.

A good size comfortable well furnished room and spotless. Lobby area ,elevator, and halls very clean and well maintained. There was a washer and dryer in the hallway by the vending machines. Great location close to the interstates.

The hotel staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. We chose this hotel because it was the least expensive in the area... everything was clean and tidy. The beds weren't that awesome, but we were only staying one night so it didn't matter that much. We would definitely stay here again. Bottom line is that if you're difficult to please, you'll probably find something you don't like about anywhere you stay! The air conditioning was awesome. We didn't travel with any pets but the hotel was very pet-friendly. We saw a couple of labradors and another dog outside... we didn't hear them at all though and it didn't smell like pets.

The hotel was reasonably clean but needs updating. The staff was friendly and helpful. The location to the freeway was good. They were gracious in the acceptance of our dog. There is a nearby hotel and good walking area for the dog.
