Bathtub had lots of different hairs, bed had dead mosquito in plain sight by pillows, and fitted sheet had a urine stain larger than a quarter on it. Staff did give us a different sheet- bed only has a thin brown blanket- no comforter, so if it is chilly out, you may need to turn on heat. Pool was very...

The hotel is close to Indiana Dunes. There is a variety of restaurants near by. The hotel is clean, nice breakfast and friendly staff. We stay there each year for the Indiana Dunes birding festival. It is right off the interstate.

We had noticed the Best Western Indian Oak on previous visits to the area, and tried it for this most recent one-night stay. If you are visiting Indiana Dunes or just passing through, it is a fine place to stay. The best thing about the hotel is the lake. Half of the rooms face it, with small balconies. I had...

The hotel is very nice. The rooms have modern decor in them. My only complaint was the TV on the dresser made a creeking noise every time I moved around the room or someone walked by in the hallway. Located just 3 miles off the Indiana toll road it was very quiet(minus the TV thing)

This hotel was conveniently located a short distance from the Indiana Dunes State Park, off of the Interstate, and to local shopping and dining. It spite of the closeness to the Interstate highway, it was quiet, and very comfortable.

I was impressed with the entrance of the building. We enjoyed it because we walked to dinner and lunch. Taco Bell is nearby, two Chinese Restaurants, and many other options were available to us. We really enjoyed the heated pool, however, there were no towels available to us. We left, dripping down the hallway and we ran to our room....

Don't buy a room with the fireplace, it doesn't work! Front desk was as helpful as possible though. I wish I could've gotten some type of reimbursement since I paid very close to $200, I tried not to complain but it was my money!
