You can't beat the convenience of pulling off I-94 just 2 min. to your room. They have a nice size indoor swimming pool with a nice hot breakfast included. It's also across the street from a very large indoor Antique Mall and close to everything else, including the Lighthouse Outlet Mall.

Stayed here for a few nights while in town for a wedding. Got a room on the interior of the building near the indoor pool. Because of the pool it was very humid and the smell of chlorine was pretty strong. Plus the only window was a view of the hallway. Not good. Really dark in the room. They also...

Worst hotel EVER. After checking, two rooms old section, saw that rugs stained throughout entire rooms and ceiling pealing. No other rooms available. That was best part. At 1 am numerous fights inside and out. 1:45 major fire broke out. Had to evacuate. Allowed back into room with fireman escort at 4 am just to retrieve personal property. There was...

We called near midnight and were told they only had 2 rooms left a king room or a room with 2 double beds. We took the king room. When we got there the staff was abrupt but okay it was late. The place was under construction (might have warned us). We got to the room and the air conditioning wasn't...

We always travel to Michigan City Memorial weekend. We usually bring our dog, and the Clarion Inn gladly accepts pets. We stayed here last year and were eager to stay again. Our check in went smoothly, as expected. What was not expected was they have done away with their complimentary breakfast. You can however, pay the $5 charge to dine...

We had booked 50 rooms for a family reunion. They worked with us to give a competitive rate due to amount of rooms. Customer service and front desk staff was great and very helpful. The restaurant on-site (Crawford's) was great and comfortable. We did not need to go outside and were able to enjoy the time with the family. The...

The hotel is not without its problems, but it is painstakingly obvious that they are making an effort. I had the good fortune of staying here a month, the staff were extremely accommodating, no matter the curve ball thrown at them. It seemed that they were short staffed often. I have witnessed angry customers complain about the noise level on...

I was here fore one night with a tour group. First thing I noticed when I got off the elevator to the second floor was debris that came from the ceiling. It was all over our floor! The room itself was fine but the bathroom was a different story. When we took our showers that night there was mold at...

When I arrived it was quiet and I had time to check on the different types of room available. I decided on a suite (very reasonable rate) and was extremely pleased with my choice. The hotel is bigger than you first imagine with many rooms inward facing to the pool. If you are a family these would certainly suit, but...

If I could give this place no stars I would. Stayed here off Hotwire. As soon as I read the reviews I didn't even want to go. It's a motel style with hotel inside. We had the motel room and came in after midnight and were upgraded inside. The inside was almost as old as the outside. I thought I...
