This is the only place to stay in our opinion if you're going to a concert at Star Plaza or anything else you have going on in Merrillville. The hotel is very nice as are the beautiful grounds. It's at a dead end so it's quite private and easy to get to. The breakfast was great and the room was...

The continental breakfast was delicious with a wide variety of choices and the set-up was well spaced to allow room for guests to get their food. The hotel room was average, with lackluster remodeling as none of the furniture matched, some of the wallpaper was peeling and the door to the room did not have the best soundproofing. The beds...

I booked this room because I came from out of town for a funeral. The staff was extraordinarily helpful and accommodating, allowing for early check-in and giving me a room that was more than I was expecting. The room was clean, attractive, and spacious, with a beautiful view from my window. The hotel has an attractive lobby/lounge area and a...

Great room. Very clean. Very spacious. Really good hearty breakfast. Courteous and friendly staff. Only downside is no elevator. Not a big issue for us, but might be for some. Will definitely stay here again.

Comfortable bed, great hot breakfast, great shower, plenty of room, clean and friendly. That is all I need and at a great price. It is very handy to the interstate and most amenities close. Indoor pool and hot tub.

We spent one night at the Clarion Inn in Merrillville, Indiana. We were driving through late at night and we're able to get a room. We have to say, for the price, it was a great stay! The room was impeccably clean and very spacious. It has been recently remodeled and was very nicely decorated. The beds were comfortable and...

Clean hotel with a very nice room. Breakfast was good with the bacon being crispy. Exercise machines need some updating and maintenance. No automatic doors as you walk inside and never did find the elevator so we ended up dragging the suitcases up the stairs. The walls are a bit thin since we could hear the couple in the next...
