There is no available bell hop, but Kevin the maintenance guy saw me struggling with... More

Hotel employees Kevin and Kryston treated us very well and couldn't have been nicer! We choose this specific hotel for the pool, where we can do our water aerobics and it has a great hot tub. Kevin promptly opens the pool at 7 a.m., so we can get our aerobics in before breakfast.

Rooms were very clean and cozy. The pool room is big with a baby pool - slide, hot tub and larger pool. All of which looked great! Every staff person we spoke with were very helpful and friendly. the kiddos loved the breakfast in the morning and were very thankful that Kevin grabbed them some more apples.

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
