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,...

We had a weekend getaway after attending a comedy show at the Star Plaza. I was seeking a nice hotel that was near and ran across the Clarion via Trip Advisor. The hotel had positive reviews so I thought I'd give it a try. The hotel is tucked away, but not hard to locate. Upon arrival, I was greeted and...

If it wasn't for the staff, this review rating would be SO much lower. This, obviously, was a hotel of stature but is now a bit run down and in need of a top to bottom deep clean! Beware there are no elevators. So, if like me, you are traveling with multiple items to carry in, be sure to book...

This hotel is a little out of the way compared to most of the chain hotels in Merrillville. Very clean with a great staff. Quiet area. Definitely will stay here again when in the area. We did not have breakfast but I believe it is an extra charge to eat there.

We stayed here one night on our way to the U.P. Very clean and spacious. We were given a handicapped room even though we didn't ask for it or need it. Glad we got it though - the bathroom was very nice and big! Bed was very comfortable. Only complaint is that the people above us on the second floor...
