Super clean, great I-80 convenience, remarkable staff! Hot breakfast and very competitive price. This place adds smiles to your miles. Great freeway access without freeway noise. Hi light was having breakfast and seeing staff share an uproariously funny moment together--started my day on the right note!

We stayed here for 4 nights. We chose this hotel because they accepted pets (our kitten made the trip with us). The hotel is very nice. Like some other reviewers, I have to say that you can hear the train that goes by. However, I'm from this area so train noise is not bothersome to me. And it is not...

Portage, Indiana We stayed at this hotel on December 29, 2014, the last night of a grueling drive from Whitefish, Montana.

Every aspect of this hotel is superlative - easy access on/off I-80 and I-94, super clean rooms, new very very comfortable beds, fresh clean smell, outstanding breakfast with cheerful service by Tracy, close to Indiana Dunes for a nice walk after a long drive.

The water pressure to take a shower is horrible. I had to stand directly under shower head so the water would trickle down. Will never stay there again. Front desk said "sorry" and moved on to someone else.
