“Not a bad place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2014

Not the most ideal location from IN-49 and the older smell in the hallways aren't the best points of this property. I was surprised that it was priced more than $100/night. The hot breakfast was good, although I had to grab something and go. I wasn't impressed by the lake outside because it was dirty on the edge. I know what they were trying to accomplish but it didn't fully succeed.

Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. Being right off highway 49 does have some negative sides to it, like having to hear the traffic every once in awhile. The lake right outside our property is used more by all the wild life that like to frequent our little town. My staff and I thank you very much for your review and encouragement, and look forward to your next visit.

For the money this hotel is a great value. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The Wifi works great. Make sure you ask for a Lake side room. The lake is absolutely lovely. The ducks, geese, gulls are all around and you can feed them out of your hands. They have a great pool that is never crowded.

I would not recommend this hotel due to its lack of cleanliness and its mediocre breakfast and service. We stayed there one night. We did like the sitting areas in the room and in the lobby because we stayed with friends and we were able to visit. However, one night was enough. I was disappointed with the hotel which I now consider pricey for what you get.

I am truly sorry that you did not enjoy your stay at my property. Yes it is true our rooms are oversized with a pull out couch in them, and makes it really nice to visit. Our spacious lobby is nice as well to have visitors come and visit with you.

This place was very clean, filled with friendly, helpful staff and has a great indoor pool, deck, fitness center and comfortable beds. We will definitely recommend this place to others! There is a beach about 8 min. from the hotel and the staff gave us many suggestions, directions and went out of their way to make our stay wonderful.

It had been awhile since staying at a Best Western but this one didn't disappoint. We took advantage of a discount from being a Harley rider and enjoyed our stay. You can tell the rooms must have been recetnly updated becasue everything in them seemed very new. They appeared to take their time and did the room up nice. The bathroom while having some new fictures looks like they could have used a little better painter but that's being picky.
We stayed here because it's just down the road (5 mins) from Indiana Dunes State park. Very nice place to visit and real close by.
Our breakfast was acceptable and plenty to eat, while not the best I've had at hotels more than enough to get you fill. The staff I worked with were both friendly and helpful. They even had the abiltiy to get a drink if you wished at a very small bar. I didn't use the pool but looking at it, it seemed clean. You have a great veiw of a small lake out back. Overall nice stay and if back in the area I would return.
