Spent several nights. Room was clean. Staff at front desk were helpful and pleasant. House keeping can not comment on as we saw them and heard them but never had one attend to our room the entire stay. Breakfast provided was standard. Juices, coffee, tea, instant oatmeal, cereal, muffins, bagels, waffles, (never saw this one before) hard boiled eggs. There was a little more but that's the general feel of it. There was a very clean mini fridge and microwave in the room. The parking lot leaves a lot to be desired, very bumpy ride. And our room didn't have much access to electrical outlets. Could have been a little better for the money, but generally a pleasant stay.
I had an event in Chicago starting early the next morning but hotels in Chicago proper are very expensive. I prefer LQ because I frequently travel with my dogs, so LQ Merrillville was the obvious choice for reasonable price a reasonable distance away from the city.
I was a little concerned because this hotel got some bad reviews but I did not have any issues. The hotel was well marked with a huge sign visible from the highway and from the surrounding streets. Although the actual driveway was off the main street from the highway exit, I did not find it difficult to locate. I did not have to drive through any parking lots and I did not see a single abandoned building or run down store as one of the other reviews described. The staff was excellent and friendly. The room was just like the many other LQ rooms I have stayed in. It was clean and well-maintained.
There were a few signs of past maintenance - the vent in the bathroom had clearly been replaced and the lid to the toilet tank was not quite the right size/shape for the tank but it covered it completely and was clean and secure. I do not count that against them - damage happens, and they had apparently dealt with it acceptably.
If I ever need to travel to Chicago again I will definitely stay here again, and I would recommend it to friends and family looking for an affordable, clean place to stay within reasonable distance of Chicago.
The hotel is looks great and the staff and manager is like family at this hotel. I'm a BP worker and travel all year round, this place is my home away from home and I tell everyone about this LaQuinta. The people that work there are very thoughtful, I recent lost my wife and the employee's made sure that I knew they were therefore me during my hard times. They helped with travel arrangements and just always take time to listen; they also send Holiday cards to remind me they are thinking about my family and me.
My wife and I had a great experience at the La Quinta Inns & Suites located at 8210 Louisiana, Merrillville, Indiana. We were attempting to make it home from Bloomington, Indiana (we live in Chicago) when we had encountered the worst snowstorm in our life. We exited the I- 65 exit at Interstate 30 and were fortunate to have located your hotel. Your staff was professional and rooms were clean. The breakfast was busy but the employee from the night before was back and ready for action, smiling while refilling items and wiping down tables. I have never stayed at a La Quinta Inns & Suites, but would not hesitate in staying in one in the future, all because of one single employee?s action, she set a pleasant tone during a rough travel experience and made our day.
January 31st my family was trying to drive home, but as there was heavy snow we decided we had to stop. The La Quinta was the closest hotel to the highway. So, we decided to stop there. The lobby area was fine, and the lady at the desk was polite. We were dead tired, and booked 2 rooms. When we drove around to the end of the hotel with our rooms (161 and 159), we were surprised. That hall smelled awful,and the floor was dirty. The furniture in the rooms was old and scraped. I had a hard time sleeping as the room had an even stronger smell than the hall. Part of the stench was clearly cigarette smoke even though the hotel had a sign that said it was "smoke free". We got up early and skipped the free breakfast: we couldn't wait to leave the smelll.
