This is a convenient place to stay on my way to Chicago. Plenty of eating establishments close by. This property is an older style of RI. My room was clean and the bedding was good. The breakfast was standard RI fare. Close to I65 but far enough away not to be noisy. I will stay here again when traveling to...

Reserved the room two months in advance, we missed a flight so only at 8 AM of arrival day we realized that we are not going to reach the hotel on the reserved day.

The thumping sound and loud voices of the people above us on the 3rd floor were disturbing due to thin floor/ceiling. The breakfast spread was a bit skimpy. There was only 1 plain yogurt available, the cheese trays had so few slices that they can be counted with one hand. Then when I pulled the chair to sit, I was...

A very nice hotel for a very reasonable price. Stayed in a 1 room suite. The bed was very comfortable and heard no noise from the rest of the hotel. The kitchen area was well equipped though I only used the coffee pot. Breakfast was nicer than the usual waffle and cereal. Was enjoyed by all. Would definitely stay again...

It was refreshing to stay at the Residence Inn especially because we had just left a hotel with a rude staff member who called the police on us for kindly requesting to speak to a manager about them not having 2 cribs we had requested.

We were in Merrillville for a funeral. My girlfriend was so distraught that she left some prescriptions in our room when we left.
