Our family of approximately 60 people attended BW Indian Oak in Chesterton, IN for our annual Christmas party. The meeting room is very nice and they called me a couple of days prior to our coming to make sure the room would be set up to our liking, they offered more tables if we needed them when we got there....

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff was friendly & very accommodating as we had also rented the room for our family party. We did feel the cost of the room was high, considering we had booked over 10 rooms at the hotel. The rooms are very spacious & were clean. The only negative was that the pool area had...

Comfy, homey hotel in a country atmosphere with wonderfully helpful, friendly staff. This hotel has a homey feel you don't get from the more modern facilities in the area with a small lake on one side where you can sit in relaxation to enjoy your breakfast or check your email in the business center. Nice little patios off the rooms...

So happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. That is the exact feeling we want all of our guests to have when staying. Hope that you will visit again. The fall is absolutely beautiful with all the leaves changing over the water and with all the wildlife that has chosen our backyard for their home.

Great second experience at this hotel. I mostly enjoy the nature out of the West Windows. Watching the birds and ducks play is so relaxing. Enjoy the pool, sauna and whirlpool. Great restaurants in town. Close to Indiana Dunes.

Motel has deferred maintenance issues. Complementary breakfast needs improvement. The food looked like it had been there a couple days. Motel needs more ice makers. Our room's bath was marginal. The tub needed work as well as the bathroom floor. The check in person was professional and efficient.

Late reservation and late arrival. Hotel was very polite and accommodating. No issues in hotel room, has been some time since renovated but no problems. Beds are about average, nothing special. Price was reasonable for accommodations. I would recommend

Nestled just off a convenient thoroughfare, with easy (even walkable) access to a wealth of shops and eateries, the location of this hotel is made even better by the immediate (I'm talking just a few feet) view of and access to a lake, one third covered by lily pads, surrounded on three sides by trees, with swans, geese, ducks, kestrels,...
