LaPorte's Best Western is one of the top values in the Great Lakes area. Convenient to area attractions, it is modestly priced and offers a variety of amenities. The staff is always pleasant, yet professional. The rooms are clean and nicely appointed. The unique Santa Fe motif was really appreciated by family members visiting from New Mexico.

This Best Western is operated on the CHEAP and AWFUL!
The only improvement that this place has had in God knows how many years is they did a paint job. that was literally putting lipstick on a pig.
Our experience started with an exceptionally rude clerk at the front desk. She was more interested in talking to her coworkers than to me the customer. When she did speak to me she spoke as fast as lips can move and I could not understand a word.
This entire facility is filthy, dated/old and all furnishings look as though they were purchased at a second hand store. Our bed was extremely worn, carpets filthy, bathroom was beat up and dirty and the TV must've been hooked up to a roof top antennae because there was interference on every one of the 4 channels they service. The hallways are nasty, dirty and the a/c units vent into the hallways making it difficult to beathe and real HOT and un comfortable. i think that whomever owns and operates this dump should be forced to spend a night there to make them realize how awful this place really is.
If you are tired and need a room... sleep in your car rather than spending good money on the DUMP.

Room Tip: Travel farten than you really have to in order to get a good hotel.

We also have a regular preventative maintenance program in place to keep up with the demands of our facility. We are very sorry to hear that your experience was not up to your standards. The experiece that you reported is very unusual and not a normal occurance. Your feedback will be looked at by all levels of our staff to see what items need to be improved upon furthur. We hope that you will give us another opportunity to serve you in the future. I would love to assist you personally.
Thank you for your feedback,

This hotel is the pits and you should avoid at all costs. We were attending a wedding and this is where rooms were blocked. It seems as though a renovation was done to enclose the outside balconies. This meant that all the room air conditioners vented into enclosed hallways spewing hot air. It was awful and everyone was astonished that this was even possible! The sliding glass doors looked out onto the hot hallways but were locked and marked with room numbers. Get my drift? A confusing hot mess. Stay away...

Debra,
The rooms that you mentioned are our Atrium View rooms. Many people enjoy having direct access to the central area of the hotel for convenience through the sliding glass doors that those rooms offer. We are currently in the process of converting all A/C & Heating units in the guest rooms to Digital Units. This will improve on maintaining a level temperature in our public areas of the hotel as well as becoming more Environmentally Friendly. We hope that you will give us another opportunity to serve you in the future. Thank you for your review.
Sincerely,
Crystal S.

Clean bedding, comfortable beds. Carpeting throughout hotel was really old and dirty, hallways smelled of old water damage. Interesting interior stucco design with open sitting & activity area. Little mini golf area, shuffle board, & indoor pool. We paid $169 for two queen beds and I thought this was very overpriced for this hotel. Very outdated. Hallways were very noticeably hot & humid with a bad odor. Not worth as much as they're charging in my opinion. All other hotels were booked on this Labor Day weekend otherwise we would've stayed elsewhere.

Dear Guest,
We have Professional Carpet Cleaners come every six months to do a deep clean on our carpets to keep them ultra clean. We recently had them do our scheduled cleaning just this past month. Our housekeeping team keeps up with high traffic areas between those visits with detailed spot cleaning as well. I am sorry to hear that your experience was not to our usual Ultra Clean level that we always strive to deliver to all guests. We would greatly appreciate the opportunity to have you try our hotel again. If I can assist you in this please contact me directly at 219-362-4585 ext. 103. Thank you for your detailed feedback.
Sincerely,
Crystal S.

I have stayed at this Best Western on several business trips. The rooms are quiet, clean, and very comfortable. The beds are great! Rooms have been updated with flat screen TV's. Lounge has excellent food and specials at a very good value. Internet is strong. The staff is very helpful and friendly. You will enjoy your stay here! They do not have a complimentary breakfast, but this hotel makes that up in other areas.

Debra,
We now offer certain rates that include breakfast with the room rate. Even though some rates may be negociated without breakfast included, we have very moderate prices for a delicious breakfast selection that we do offer. It is always a pleasure when you stay with us. We greatly appreciate your business and your feedback!
