    Conveniently located. Like the room set up and the view over the water.

    There were frequent train passings across the lake. It seemed like a train would come through about every half hour and blow its whistle so it made it very difficult to get any sleep.

    It’s in a good location

    This place is a dump. Extremely dirty. Not sure it could ever be cleaned again, it is in that bad of shape.

    Like: Great location, beautiful view of the lake, hot tub in some rooms, friendly staff & quick check in.

    Dislike: Gloomy entryway, no breakfast option included in the $170 price. It was renovated in the past few years yet, run down in spots. Other than the corner of dirt in the tub, the room was clean.

    Everything was perfect for us. The view was spectacular makes you feel like you have traveled out of Chesterton Indiana for the night. Love the balcony despite the cold weather. Would love to come back in the Summer time. Room smelled great upon entering, the Lobby was Beautiful. Staff was super friendly and helpful. We had a great night here!!!

    I have bad knees and could have used an elevator but other than that I had a great time here.
