Cons: Bathtub is sleepery, no refrigerator
Cons: Do not book this hotel, I repeat, Do not book this hotel. We made an honest mistake by booking the hotel 5 days prior to our stay. Due to a late arrival (7:30pm local time) they gave our reserved room to someone else. Manager and Ass. Manager are liars...

Pros: Nice location, nice pool, Great breakfast, nice room
Cons: No elevator--had a room on 2nd floor!
halls, lobby needed to be vacuumed.
Pros: The staff were very nice and quick to respond. We had a broken towel bar and someone fixed it right away.
Cons: Having paid through a 3rd party, I felt the $6.99 for breakfast was too much. It really would be better to charge a couple more dollars and include the breakfast.
Pros: The room was clean and the a/c worked well! The mini fridge was a nice touch for a standard room. The waterfall was awesome and had a gazebo and short trails. Seems unimportant, but the water pressure and temp was perfect. The staff was great. They grabbed extra towels and supplies quickly when we asked and offered the hot tub past hours since the pool was down. Housekeeping tends to knock until you answer so put the do not disturb sign up!
Cons: The pool was unusable due to chemically shocking it for 24hrs. That was just an inconvenience since we had a child with us that was so looking forward to it. The spa/hot tub was nice just very hot and no way to regulate it.
I was surprised by the fact breakfast was not included. We had to pay $5+ per person.
Lastly, the pond out back is awesome but could use some attention. It smells like a merky pond.

Cons: The breakfast was horrible. Also the heat didn't work in none of the 3 rooms I was moved to. The pool was filthy and had a pile of what looked like sand in the corner of the hot tub.
Pros: Nothing. It was horrible.
Cons: Everything. Dirty. Bugs. Smells. Backed up sinks. Invasive cleaning staff. Super tiny pillows. Tiny TV. The pool was horrible. And it is cold. Not heated. It was all just nasty and I am so upset I got taken advantage of! Worst trip ever!
Pros: Pool & hot tub. Breakfast was good.
Cons: Had to call the desk to get heat. No kleenex A giant bug on the wall.
Pros: It was a convienet location.
Cons: it was old . the paint was coming off the walls. they did not have reservation when I got there. The breakfast was not out on time and there was no coffee and no bottled water . they guy behind the front deck told us if we wanted water there was a cup and
Pros: I can honestly say that the front desk clerk when I arrived Friday evening was the best employee at that location, other than that, it was very disappointing and out right disrespectful in the manner that they treated me and my children.
Cons: The overall condition of the hotel was very poor and dirty. My first room was horrible, the floor wasn't vacuumed and there was a dirty foot print on the white bed sheets. They didn't want to change my room until I told them I was going to leave then at 1
Pros: Pool and staff very nice
Pros: The pool was nice but the hot tub wasn't working. The price was okay, not worth the money. I would have rather paid 20$ more for a better breakfast.
Cons: Location-The main road to enter the hotel is under MAJOR construction at this time. It was inconvenient. Staff-Most of the staff was friendly, about half. The other half were rude. Breakfast-Terrible! The only good thing was the waffle maker.
Pros: Staff very helpful
Pros: The staff was so wonderful at check in and very helpful when asked about directions to and from where we were going. Room was more than what we ever expected! Beds were so comfortable, like being home.
Cons: Someone in the next room decided to smoke in their room and we had a baby with us and woke to the smoke coming thru the bathroom vent. Very unhappy and reported to the front desk. They were not at fault and so sorry for the issue. Only down side.
Pros: I liked the friendliness and honesty of the staff.
Cons: The toilet wasn't clean, and they had ants bad, both in the bathroom and on my night stand.
Pros: It was close to a lot of things
Cons: The quality of room was horrible. It seemed very janky. Not classy at all. The breakfast tasted like rubber. I would not stay there again for the price I paid.
Pros: Not much to like about it. The whirlpool was filthy with loads of sand on the bottom. Many people from the community were just allowed to come in the back door and use the pool--no security enforced. The entire building is in need of major repairs.
Cons: It was a non-smoking room, but it smelled like smoke. There were cigarette holes on the bedspread and burn marks on the toilet. There was paint scraped off the walls all over the room. The carpet was stained in many spots with a bright red stain.

Pros: It was quiet and the staff was mostly pleasant.
Cons: They don't clean your room daily. I think this should always be an option for people. Some may not want their room cleaned or disturbed because they are working but others may want new towels and a clean bed spread everyday....this is what hotels normally do, a luxury you should receive when you go to a hotel for a stay.
Pros: The hotel is located near restaurants and shopping, and major highways. The room itself was very nice with comfortable bed and plenty of desk space to work on. The shower was good and strong.
Cons: We brought back leftovers from a restaurant meal and wanted to heat them up and eat them later. The kitchen had NO utensils or kitchen ware of any kind. It just had the appliances. Very disappointing.
Pros: Good location.
Cons: Would like to see them upgrade the breakfast.
Pros: We were happy to see that the online photos accurately reflected the hotel and that the photos weren't pictures of another property. It was extremely pleasant and affordable experience--especially when considering the price. I'd be willing to pay a little more next time knowing what I now know.
Cons: There really wasn't anything negative.
Cons: Staff seemed lazy. They wanted us to come downstairs to get towels and cutlery instead if bringing them to the room.

Cons: It was challenging to find the drive back to the hotel in the dark. More signage would be helpful.
Pros: Staff was nice
Cons: Not really
Pros: able to get room
Pros: Awesome staff and amenities!
Cons: We had to have them change the bedspreads and after looking behind the bed it seems like they never changed the bedskirts at all. The only reason we did not leave is the stay was non-respundable and it was snowing at the time.
I will use this hotel again.
Pros: Ease of finding it. Good price.
Not worth the xxx dollars i spent on it. It was run down and dirty. lobby and elevator smelled terrible. I would never stay there again. Not sure why this hotel is offered on priceline and it will make me think twice before i book another hotel from price line.
Cons: Dirty dirty dirty
Overall, it did the job. The room did smell really bad. Not like smoke, but just bad. Location was good for where we needed to go and it was right off the highway. Only better beds and a better smell would've boosted the score
Price was descent and the location was good, but sadly the area it was in was quite run down, despite the Indiana Dunes being so close and Chicago just an hour away.
Pros: It was affordable and the location was what we needed.
Cons: It wasn't the cleanest place I've ever stayed.

Pros: Not my first stay here. I didn't roam about the hotel, only went from room to car, so that's why I don't feel I experienced enough to give an excellent rating, but I will rate it next to excellent. The facility and rooms are clean, nice bright colorful & white bedding too, clean laminate floors, no dirty sticky carpet. Housekeeping lady cheerfully thanked me for staying as I departed. I stayed across the street once at some extremely cheap budget hotel or whatever and it was the nastiest - Anyway - long as this Motel 6 continues to provide quality accommodations I WILL ALWAYS STAY HERE WHEN I VISIT THE STATE.
Cons: Only thing I will give a thumbs down on is that I had to walk my dirty towels to the front desk to exchange for clean towels. No EXTRA towels would be given. Lol.
Pros: Just the tx
Cons: Floors are sticky and slimy
Bathroom mirror look like it was just used one of their own towels to wipe it down with Big smudges
No microwave nor fridge
No additional privacy curtain
Not enough parking
They charge for each additional person per your room
But the booking app don't
Front desk told me it's $7 a night per extra person
But the room tag says $3 per night
We stayed the weekend
This place like the screw people
This place is not quiet
Other guests screaming and yelling
When we were leaving
Two parents were fighting and screaming Leaving their toddler unattended
Pros: Clean, quiet, and cheap place to sleep and shower. Front desk lady, at night, was friendly and efficient. Bathroom was pleasant surprise.
Cons: Mattress was ok, not good. Pillows were decent, not amazing. The bedding/covers were thin, scratchy, and uncomfortable. No hair dryer. "Hard wood" floor was weird and not warm/inviting/comfortable. Hallways hot and stuffy, with a bit of a feel of, well, cheap motel.
Pros: The price
Cons: The hard wood floors
Pros: The room was likely completely renovated. The walls freshly painted, linoleum instead of carpeting (and thus, no lingering smells), new furniture, all new bathroom fixtures. All still in-line with what you would expect in Motel 6 (i.e. utilitarian), but all in working condition and clean. Water pressure in the shower was adequate (in contrast with some other reviews), and the tub drained quickly. The front-desk staff was great - efficient and inviting.
Cons: I asked for a quiet room because I was going to bed early. I do think they gave me a room that had away from other rooms. I didn't hear much chatter outside my room. That being said, somewhere within hearing distance, one of the self closing doors was in use all night long. I heard that door banging and one person walking up and down the stairs until about 3 am.
Motel 6 Merrillville is a smoke free property off I-65 conveniently located to dining, Southlake Mall, Deep River Waterpark, Lake County Fairgrounds, and Genesis Convention Center. Enjoy modern rooms with WiFi for a small fee.
Cons: The huge amount of hair on the sheets and bedframe and having to put new sheets on myself!
Pros: Staff was friendly.
Cons: Checked in but had some running around to do so we came back to the room later. Upon returning we found that the smoke alarm was constantly beeping and the comforter in the bed had large cigarette burns in them right where house keeping would turn the bed down so they had to be noticed. Told the front desk about the beeping and their response was that there was nothing that could be done due to maintenance being gone for the day. When we were leaving the following morning housekeeping asked what room we were leaving from and as I told her she must have sensed my frustration and asked if everything was ok. In which case I responded not really considering I spent all night listening to their smoke alarm beep so I really didn't sleep. She apologized and then continued to tell me that she had told maintenance about it the previous day. Don't stay here, find somewhere better.
Cons: VERY rude staff. It was the filthiest room I've ever been in. Whole room stank of old smoke and pet odor. Demanded another room and they showed me two more which were even worse. Food scraps on the floor and on the table. Pillows stank, towels had stains and stank, comforter had holes. Microwave was all greasy and nasty. A/C half broken, fridge not cold, one lamp had no bulb and they said maintenance is gone for the rest of the day and it was 3 PM. All the night constant highway noise was only interrupted a few times by people fighting and shouting curses at each other. Didn't feel safe. It ruined my whole short getaway trip. NEVER AGAIN.
Pros: The staff was very courteous.
Cons: The bathroom facilities were terrible! You had to hold the handle to flush the toilet. The sink was stopped up, couldn't wash hands without the sink filling up. There was hair on the wall of the shower. Have stayed at various Red Roof Inns but will NEVER go back nor recommend this location.
Pros: Clean, convenient, great price
Cons: noise by highway, but okay while sleeping and water pressure just okay in shower and the shower was very worn....needing updating.
Pros: Nothing really
Cons: The place was filthy, I felt unsafe even though it was in a good area. We were booked for 2nights but left after 1.
Still close to Chicago, but with a charm and attractions all its own—that is Merrillville. Southlake Mall and Deep River Water Park are both nearby, while Star Plaza Theater, Lake County Fairgrounds, and McCormick Place are all only 25 miles from this hotel. This Red Roof is conveniently located near a variety of restaurants.
