Stayed here for 1 night while I was getting transferred. Check-in was smooth and the lobby area was clean and nice. Got up to the room on the 6 the floor and the room was large and clean. The room could use some paint and drywall patch as there were lots of holes and scrapes. Bed and bath were fine...

I gave this hotel 5 stars last time I stayed here, and imagine I will next time we stay. Great pool, very comfortable rooms and beds, good staff, clean, etc. Fridge and microwave in room, cookies and tea in lobby, great breakfast with lots of variety. The only reason it got 4 stars this time is that they were having...

Nice stay, used the hot tub to relax. Little high on the chlorine, but very doable. Would live to see a bar inside this hotel. I didn't get a chance to use the game room as it was out of order but maybe next time.

This hotel was one of the nicest and cleanest facilities I had visited in the area. It has a very large pool, a smaller kids pool and a hot tub for its visitors. All the staff were friendly and welcomed you while you walk through the facility. It also has a portable lift to assist handicap visitors into the pool...

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
