The hotel needs updated. No automatic front entry door. The elevator is at the end of a hallway and is shared with housekeeping. Every Hotel room everywhere should have lamps in the rooms with extra outlets to plug in the electronics. Very annoying trying to reach behind furniture to charge a phone and camera.
The plumbing is a issue at this hotel also. Barely any water in the toilet bowls which cause the toilets to clog easily.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by roxve Pleasant hotel, good service
When we arrived we were offered a room upgrade due to my IHG rewards status, as well as extra points. The room was very spacious and had a jacuzzi. Unfortunately it seems the room used to be a smoker's room, so the stale smell of cigarette smoke was still present, but everything else about it was great.
Breakfast was the usual Holiday Inn breakfast, including the cinnamon buns which we love.
We tried going in the indoor pool but the water was so cold we were not able to stay in for more than 5 minutes. This was a little bit of a disappointment.
The staff was very friendly, and the business center was new and easy to use.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ivyoreo Room size and items for breakfast very limited
The staff was very helpful.
The room was too small and the bathroom smaller.
The price was 20 to 25 dollars more than other Holiday Inns we stayed at on this trip. They were bigger and offered more for breakfast than here.
We enjoyed the popcorn and cookies. Very good.
Very limited TV stations, unless we wanted to pay extra.

The hotel is in a good location and it is very easy to get on the interstate. Good places to eat very close. Staff very friendly and helpful. Made sure to let us know if we needed anything or anything was not as it should be to be sure to let them know and they would take care of it. Would stay here again.

Since I am often in the Merriville area in business, I often stay at the Merriville Holiday Express. I appreciate the friendliness of the staff and how they go out of the way to offer service and be friendly while doing so. They always remember my name and ask me if they can do anything for me. Even housekeeping service people stop in the hall to wish me a good day and safe travels. It seems more like a small inn than a big city hotel. Cookies, popcorn, and lemon water meet you in the front entry with the hometown paper. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JEM8 Helpful and friendly staff
I was very impressed with the staff at this Holiday Inn Express. When I made my reservation I accidentally made an error, and all it took was a quick and easy phone call to the hotel to get everything situated. I was incredibly grateful for the help. Beyond that, everyone I dealt with during my stay was happy and friendly, and had answers to my questions.
My room was clean and quiet (just what I needed), and I will stay here when I'm back in town.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Renoir Comfortable affordable and great service, but . . .
The room and facilities at Holiday Inn Express in Merrillville are wonderful, topped only by the great service. I've been a regular guest there for over a decade. My only complaint is the variety of continental breakfast foods. I've written several times to management over the years about providing dairy-free beverages as an alternative breakfast beverage. Not everyone wishes to consume or can tolerate dairy products. I've suggested everything from almond to soy milk as a healthy alternative, to no avail. These are inexpensive alternatives that can be easily be provided to guests.

My husband and I came to this hotel just for a one night get away. We were very impressed! The pool was very clean and warm and they even provided toys!!! We rented the jaquizi room and it was very spacious and relaxing. The breakfast options were great! Definitely will be back!!

Great service, clean and comfortable rooms, decent choices at breakfast. Highly recommend. I work and travel on the road 15-20 nights per month and would definitely stay here again when in the area as a first choice in this Holiday Inn Express.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Chaz126 Poor staff
I would not stay at this place again. There were kids running the halls up until 2AM and the front desk did nothing. I sent Shelli, the manager, an email about my stay and never received a response. I stay at Holiday Inn Express all over the country and this place will be taken off of our company list of recommended properties. Several other issues with the stay were never addressed either. The staff seems not to care that they are going to lose business.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bradlee Not recommended
I stay in HIE properties on aversge 4 -5 nights a week thru the year.
I found this property to be a poor experience.
Upon checkin, the young lady at the desk was unkind. She handed me my key and shoved the bottle of water to me.
I was stunned.
The room was ok but the tv clarity was terrible.
Not a recommended property for me.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by racrinmuncie Another visit, Not as good as the previous.
I like the location and the general condition of the hotel is good. I had a problem with the bath tub drain running extremely slow. I notified the desk when I went out for work in the morning. I found it wasn't repaired yet the next morning. Not a good sign. I'll be on a project until September next year in the area. I hope the reponse improves or I'll have to take my business to a different hotel.

I recently (today) tried to make reservations for tomorrow for 2 nights ( which have stayed many nights here at Merrilliville)and was told they only have the Suite left and I attempted to make a reservation (being a IHG Platinum member) and was rudely spoken to by Marcia on the phone as to upgrading as a Platinum Member for this room. MANY MORE HOTELS IN THIS AREA TO STAY AT, TO ADVOID THIS KIND OF IHG LOYALTY ABUSE.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by racrinmuncie Long Term Visit Planned
The desk staff are freiindly and service oriented. I like the popcorn machine in the lobby, although the cookies need to be left in the oven longer. They are consitently doughy.
I like the proximity to quite few resturaunts and convenince of shopping nearby for suipplies I might need for work or personal.
One item needing improvement is the consistency of housekeeping. I had to go down and get coffee a couple of time during my stay and the bathrom fixtures didn't look like they were cleaned every day.
Otherwise I like the hotel and will be staying for the next several weeks while I'm in the area on a project.

There was construction going on while I was there and as I tried to rest in the afternoon the fire alarm went off and woke me up. The staff acted like it was no big deal and didn't bother to tell me it was a false alarm. The overall appearance and cleanliness was not great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Karen92 Great hotel
Close to a lot of restaurants and shopping. Big, clean rooms. Nice to have complimentary, freshly popped popcorn in the lobby....with three different cheese toppings to choose from! My only complaint was that I called ahead early the day of our arrival and asked to not be put in a room close to the elevator. When we got to our room, yep, it was two doors over from the elevator. I said something to the front desk clerk, but by then it was too late. Fortunately, it was not too much of an issue....this time. Overall, though, the hotel was great!

This Holiday Inn Express is a nice place to stay. Its defiantly not meant to be for extended stays. Had been staying at another IHG motel in town, however they were full up this week. Rooms are cozy and clean they do have a small fridge and microwave. The internet service is outstanding. I don't do breakfast so I couldn't really comment on that. I would definitely come back.
