Went with my wife to check out Indiana Dunes and catch up with an Army buddy. Had previously booked an adjacent hotel, but my booking was for a room with Double Beds and I wanted a larger bed, so I rebooked this hotel.
I checked some of the reviews before arriving and was pleased with what I saw.
One of the complaints that I had seen was people bring up trains nearby. It was a day into our stay when I heard my first train. We live a mile away from a railway line, so perhaps I have grown accustomed to them. But the sound was minimal to me.
The worst thing that I can say about our stay was the tub drain was a little slow. Lol. That was about it, and that is pretty petty. So it wasn't an issue to us.
The people staying right above us on the second floor must have had kids because we could hear them occasionally going across the floor, but having had a child ourselves (now grown), again it didn't bother us.
So that being said, here is what I found when we arrived... An easy check-in and a clean and conveniently placed hotel. Chubb Lake out the back is a nice place to chill when you want to. There are a plethora of eating establishments within walking distance, and Indiana Dunes Park is a very short drive away.
We also hit the Outlet Stores in Michigan City as well as Washington Street Beach there. Those are about a 20 minute drive from the hotel.
We went to Porter Beach to watch the sunset Friday and Washington Beach on Saturday. The difference in the two beaches are Porter is a nice beach for relatively quiet relaxation without alcohol. And Washinton Park Beach is much more lively and allows adult beverages (no glass).
Both beaches were very nice and clean.
My wife and I found the Best Western Indian Oak to be a great place to stay during our trip and will certainly return. less
