“A great weekend get away!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

This was a very nice motel! If we decide to stay in Michigan City we definitely would stay here again. The room was comfortable and clean, no weird smells, quiet and everything was freshly remodeled.
It was in a great proximity to all the activities we wanted to do, the beach, Lighthouse Outlet Mall, the Michigan City Zoo, Blue Chip Casino ando Duneland Waterpark.
The pool was awesome!

If you are looking for an inexpensive place to stay, this is a good choice. Not much for frills, but the room was clean and quiet and the grounds well kept. This is a true motor lodge like I remember as a kid. The door even used a real key! Nice trip down memory lane.

Stayed here once again over the 4th weekend. Hanging out by the pool & grilling was the highlight. Great location and the hotel is awesome with remodeled rooms. The owners are quite accommodating to all your needs and very friendly and nice. Great rates and I highly recommend this place to all! I will be back next week!

Stayed with a group of friends as part of a bicycle ride / Michigan City pub crawl weekend. Location is great just off the Calumet Trail which is north of the motel on the other side of the tracks. This is a vintage motel, built in the 1950's, a nice change from the cookie cutter chains which dominate the landscape today. Bring the kids (or grandkids) to experience how families traveled fifty years ago. The inviting pool and in-room refrigerators and updated TV's with plenty of cable channels will satisfy their modern needs as well. The owners are a young friendly couple who obviously put a lot of effort into maintaining clean and comfortable rooms and pleasant grounds.

Attn: Bicyclists. Lots of good trails in the area. Al & Sally's is a nice headquarters for a biking weekend. Of course the dunes and beaches are a great draw as well.

Room Tip: Ask for a non-smoking room. Indiana is behind the times where smoking is concerned.

Al and Sally's is an old style drive up motor hotel with refurbished clean and comfortable rooms for a bargain price. We were pleased. However, what was really extraordinary was how the owners went out of their way to accommodate our two bicycles and to send me a favorite pair of boots that I left behind. If you want a good night's sleep and charming hosts, please put Al and Sally's on your radar.

Very clean room, obviously recently remodeled, comfy bed. Everything you might need - flat panel TV with cable, refrigerator, coffee maker. The couple managing the motel were friendly and attentive to our needs and questions. And about $50 for the night - what a deal!

After reading the reviews on trip advisor, I decided to try this motel. There are 6 in my family and luckily this motel had a room to fit all of us (2 queen beds and 2 twin). It beat paying for 2 separate rooms at any other hotel. The motel has a outdoor pool and swingset. The room was nice and comfortable. Bathroom appeared to be newly renovated. Woman at the front desk was extremely nice. Check in/out was quick and painless. The motel is located centrally to the dunes, shopping, and eating. Room comes with refrigerator and coffee pot. There is a commuter train that passes behind property but it is quiet.
