My first stay at Clarion Inn since it changed from Courtyard. Upon arriving which was after 3:00 pm I was told my room was not ready and I had to wait for 30 min. Their excuse was an employee called off. My room was at the far end in which I also could enter thru the end door. The entrance...

We are a Family of four with two children. We book this through Priceline had a great rate. The hotel is being updated and that's where extremely comfortable. Everything was clean and nice. It is my understanding that they do you have a hot breakfast however our booking did not come with it. The swimming pool is an indoor outdoor...

But I just can't! I've been to this location a minimum of 5 times. Had a variety of different rooms on each side and each floor of the hotel. The first thing I'll note is the smell. I have yet to stay in a room that did not have a stench of mold! Every time, it never fails. If you...

My first time at a clarion inn hotel. Loved the room. Beds were comfy, everything seemed to be clean. Nice pool area. Great service. Use Priceline for cheap rates, look at (express deals) and pick the 3 star hotel. Merrillville was great city to relax in.

This hotel was our family reunion hotel and it was a great short stay (it was just overnight). The staff was friendly and helpful, delivering amenities to our door quickly. It is family friendly, spacious and had wifi and a business center computer. Our room had a beautiful view of the water and the room was nice. It was a...

Right off the highway and close to everything. I booked king with sofa sleeper because we actually use the sleeper on occasion. We've had bad experiences with them before. As we settled in, we checked out the sleeper and it was typically uncomfortable. What was awesome was the end result from the staff. Angie and crew brought in brand new...

We wound up needing to stay near Crown Point for one night for work. Booked this due to price and I was honestly slightly nervous. We'd never stayed in a Clarion before. There is nothing at all fancy here, but I loved the location of this hotel. A little off the path of all the other hotels and tucked against...

My wife and I planned a 3 night stay. We liked the room, but couldn't believe the noise from a large rowdy group staying there. The yelling and laughing was so loud you could not have a normal conversation in the foyer area. At night it was no better. Children running and yelling down the hall ways. Adults talking loudly,...
