This place has a lot of potential. It's right on Pine Lake and if you choose the right room, you can get a great view of the lake at a reasonable price. That is exactly what my husband and I did a couple years ago - we made a reservation for a specific room that we were told we could have when making the reservation, only to be told upon check-in that our room was given to someone else. We were moved to another room not quite as nice as the one we reserved. We complained but management was not sympathetic at all and made no apologies. It has been almost two years since we stayed there and decided to give them another try, only to be told over the phone that we are no longer welcome to stay there. I guess if you complain, be prepared to be banned from their hotel. Their motto: The customer is always wrong.

We stayed for 2 nights (hotel has 2 night minimum requirement during summer season on weekends). Staff was helpful since we asked if possible to check in bit earlier since we had to change for a wedding. They have map of area in the front desk. Self serve hot breakfast was eggs and sausage and included fruit and yogurt. As others already mentioned, inn is located right on a lake and so nice to sit in the back and enjoy the relaxing view. Great value as inn offers free WIFI and rooms with microwave and small fridge plus lobby area has coffee/tea station all day (coffeemaker in the rooms too). Would definitely recommend and stay here again.

If you're near Indiana Dunes State Park, you will not find a better place to stay than the Blue Heron Inn. Our clean $99 Lakeview room had a jacuzzi, fireplace, king size poster bed, and a patio right on the water. There's a free hot breakfast and 24 hr. free cookies, coffee, and tea. They have a small heated pool that looks out onto Pine Lake and a great restaurant on site.

I was on a road trip and stumbled onto the Blue Heron Inn. Lucky me! The rooms are large and include a fireplace, a whirlpool tub, and a generously-sized coffee area and refrigerator. I had a beautiful lake view. And the rooms were spotlessly clean. Not everything in the room was new, but it was all very well maintained. So much better than the chain hotels in town, and less expensive!

Room Tip: Ask for an upper level room with a lake view!

This was our first visit, and wanted a quick weekend getaway. I found relaxation everywhere I looked, and our room was so cozy and clean. We enjoyed the jacuzzi in the room, and lake view. Room was updated with flat screen tv, beautiful bathroom and the bed and pillows were so comfortable. Frig in room was very convenient. The lobby is beautiful. Enjoyed dinner at TBone restaurant. Everyone so friendly and attentive.
