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...

Nice, clean hotel with helpful staff. The location was good for us due to being near interstate and restaurants. Only stayed one night and on our way the next morning but would definitely stay here again if in the area.

A perfect oasis on the drive down south for Wisconsin. Friendly staff, excellent clean room, excellent clean towels, hot water in the shower, and a delicious breakfast with a huge selection of food choices in the morning. The bed & pillows were comfortable allowing for a good night sleep.

Good hotel for the money. It is priced a lttile lower than most of the national chain hotels in Merrillville. Room was larger than most and very clean. Frig and microwave in the room. Toilet paper a little cheap and Kleenex was nowhere to be found. We did not have breakfast as it is not included; but the free breakfast...

I'd consider staying here again because I got a great discount through Travelocity, but there were some basics which could be improved upon. No cable, only broadcast. Switching between channels was a challenge with the remote. Luckily I knew the Chicago broadcast channels so I wasn't't lost. No sleep function. It took a long time after the breakfast buffet was...

At check in there were no rooms available. I requested a first floor room (at reservation) because of a knee injury and was told that I could not have one unless I waited three or four more hours.
