"I knew I'd made a bad decision as soon as I arrived at this hotel. The parking lot was dark and uninviting, especially for a woman traveling alone. The front desk clerk was surly and treated me as if I interrupted her cell phone call to do something trivial. There was a group of men in the lobby, and one said something inappropriate to me. The room reeked of smoke, even though it's supposedly a smoke-free property. It was musty, and the bathroom was disgusting. Breakfast was inedible. Don't stay here.2017-04-29"

"Hotel was clean but a little dated. Looked like renovations were underway. We had to walk down a number of hallways to get to our room. Room was large. Great bath towels. Continental breakfast was unimpressive. 2015-01-24"
"The motel was OK. There were some stains on the bedding, and the room smelled musty. The shampoo container was already open and half gone, and there was only one bar of soap. Not much hot water in the morning. Not worth the price.2021-09-08"

"Close to the casino, restaurants, and the outlet mall. Low-cost, no-thrill hotel. The room was clean and cool. The bed wasn't comfortable, but the linens were clean. Nice shower with plenty of hot water. The toilet didn't flush well, and there was rust in the sink. No AC in the hallway. Pleasant staff. We didn't see an elevator, and the stair carpet had a pattern that makes you dizzy if you stare at it. Continental breakfast was mediocre.2015-09-07"
"Great hotel; we want to come back with our kids.2016-02-16"

"Good hotel overall, but I found grocery bags between the bed and the wall. The AC didn't work well and was dirty; also, one knob wouldn't turn and the other one was wobbly. The staff was polite, and breakfast was good. Nice enough, but nothing fancy.2015-08-04"

"The bathtub didn't drain well. The hotel clerk was surly and short with me when I asked for a new key. Another clerk told me to go online and look when I asked about the train schedule. I left my phone charger behind, and of course when I called about it, I was told it hadn't been found. I was quite disappointed.2015-03-24"
"The hotel and room were sparkling clean and well-maintained. Even the carpet in the hallway was clean. My entire room was odor-free, and all the furnishings and fixtures looked new. Even the bathroom was spotless, though the floor felt a bit sticky. This will definitely be my 1st choice when I return to Michigan City.2017-01-05"
"Our non-smoking room smelled like smoke, and the smoke detector was hanging from the wall. I turned on the sink water, and water flowed from the handle. The entrance had a sign saying the door would be locked for our safety, but it was not. Don't stay at this hotel.2021-09-20"

"The hotel room was nice, clean, and quiet, and the TV worked. The AC was a bit loud. The walk-in shower had a short shower curtain, so water splashed onto the floor and out the door. I was given extra towels when I told the front desk clerk. There were some loud dogs when I was there. Good continental breakfast.2022-08-03"

"My hotel stay was fine, including the unexpected upgrade to a king suite. One of the TV remote controls didn't work, the bathroom door didn't close properly, and there was no tissue. Fortunately, the 2nd remote control worked for both TVs.2018-06-04"
"There were restaurants nearby, and a gas station and convenience store next door. This was an exceptionally clean hotel. Our room was comfortable and sanitary, and the pillows were wonderful.

Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
