Casinos like Horseshoe, Ameristar, and Majestic I and II are also in the neighborhood.

Were right on a major 80/94 corridor, so its easy to zip around the neighborhood.

Lakefront activities are a perfect way to pass the time. Guests at this Hammond hotel get to experience the natural beauty of the region. The Pierogi Fest in Whiting is a popular attraction. The South Shore Air and Water Show is another annual event that draws in guests from around the country.

We also welcome visiting professors and families that are in town to check out the local campuses. Both Purdue University Calumet Campus and IUN Northwest campuses are just a short drive away.

Thank you for your positive response to our hotel. We are currently in the process of reworking the entire public space on the first floor. Our Pub has moved adjacent to the restaurant. This will allow our evening guests to enjoy their meal with drinks, and eliminate the wait time. In addition we have created new spaces; an area where coffee is available, and guests can sit and enjoy their wait in the lobby. Our business center is moving to the lobby area, and we have created a beautifully appointed space for a Free Hot Breakfast. This will be a hot breakfast, with a build your own yogurt buffet and build you own oatmeal buffet. Our guests have been asking for a breakfast for awhile, and we listened. Our guests, I believe, will find these changes exciting. The breakfast area will have outlets for you to charge your phone while eating. There will be many choices from cereal to eggs and sausage. Our rooms will also have all new furniture, carpeting and wall finishes. We are very excited about the things we can offer our guests. Thank you for your review.

Never again

Dear Mr. B: I am sorry for the lack of Hoosier Hospitality you received during your stay. Just as in your own home, we occasionally have unwelcome pests, that are brought in by opportunity, or nature. No one wants unwanted guests, and we are no exception. The first thing we should have offered you immediately is a new room. We then could have fixed the issue, without inconvenience to any guest. Sometimes , in a full house situation, we cannot do this. In your case, on this date, it was possible. I refunded one day of your stay and sent you an apology. I hope you will give us another opportunity to serve you whenever your travel plans call for overnight accommodations. Best Regards
