HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 4 January 2017 via mobile

We had a great stay. The teenagers that attended Jackie's 13th birthday party had a great time. The service was great. The beds were comfortable. The pool fit all 13 of them. The pool was 3' to 5' deep and very clean. They played with a beach ball and nerf footballs in the pool area, which worked because of the...

First off, love the updated rooms. They were due & did a nice job. Still giving average rating but USED TO BE awesome. We have stayed here numerous times but the most recent 2 night stay while passing through will be our last unless some changes are made. Agree with some other recent reviews: unsupervised kids, obnoxious kids throwing toys...

Dear mabradford14, We appreciate that you took the time to share your experience with us. I would like to apologize for the issues you experienced during the spring break. We were not expecting the kinds of crowds we received mostly due to the unexpected closing of another popular hotel pool. We have already discussed steps to make improvements for 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
