Our owners took great care to make our hotel family friendly when it was built and didn't forget about the little ones. Our kiddie pool is amazing and so much fun for the little ones that we see the same families come back often because of it. We hope to see you again very soon. Stay safe during your travels...

Great location to hit the Indiana dunes and historic Chesterton. The draw here tho is the staff, front desk super accommodating and personal. Cleaning staff over the top helpful and the pool area has a kid are large hot tub and huge pool. Great find for our family!

Had a small getaway and stayed at this lovely hotel. Our room was wonderful, very spacious and clean. The A/C worked incredibly well in our room on the 4th floor. The hallway was noticeably hot in the evening but we saw workers out there trying to be quick to remedy the problem. The bathroom was nice and clean and the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are located near the the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore and just 1 mile from Portage's Riverwalk beach park. We are a family friendly hotel with a large aquatic center featuring a kiddie pool, hot tub, swimming pool and an arcade area. We offer a great free breakfast every morning that includes fresh homemade waffles, various hot items like sausage and eggs as well as lots of fruits and cereals. We are just 45 minutes from downtown Chicago with great rail service available daily until midnight or later. The famed Lighthouse Outlet mall is less than 20 minutes away as are numerous casinos. Portage is a great place to vacation or just visit. Our beaches are second to none and our people are friendly and always inviting.. The famed Steel Mills of NW Indiana are just minutes away from the hotel so business clients are always welcomed. Specially negotiated rates are available for all contractors and vendors doing business with the mills. ... more   less
