Coming N. from Indianapolis, where to stay outside Chicago?

We will be coming from Indianapolis into Chicago (we are from Ohio, but this is the route we are taking) and are wondering a good place/neighborhood about 30 minutes to an hour outside the city to spend the night? We are going on into the city for the weekend the next day, but just need somewhere on the way to stay as we will be traveling in the evening/night. Any suggestions? Thanks for any help:)

Use www.hotels. com or similar site and check for properties in Hammond, IN. There's a Fairfield Inn, Best Western, Residence Inn, Courtyard and others. All will be right off of 80/94.

If you are coming from Ohio through Indianapolis you have some driving to do. If you can't get within an hour of the city you have Lafayette IN about two hours away from Chicago.

HI I would look at Crown Point over Hammond. But actually if you are that close to Chicago you might as well drive all the way.

I personally wouldn't stay in Hammond but if you check Merrillville (or Munster) IN there are many hotels on the way back from 65 to 80/94. The area is safe, cheap (compared to Chicago) and only 45 to an hour away from the city. Merrillville has a mall so plenty of dining choices across the board. You also have Lansing IL which has several motels off 80/94.
