We were in Merrillville for my daughter's softball tourney. Had booked a different hotel near by that we were not happy with at all. So we quickly searched for another hotel and found Candlewood[More]
within our price range. Checked in very late at night with a 1 year and 2 other children who were exhausted. Front desk associate was super helpful and quick, ensuring my kids could get to bed ASAP. We were really surprised by our room size and the fact that we had a mini kitchen with large refrig, stove, microwave and even a dishwasher. Made it so much easier for us to keep milk and food in the room for the kids to have early in the morning or before bedtime.
The only issue we had but it didn't bother us too much was regulating the air conditioner. It would be really hot when we would get back from the ballfields and by the middle of the night, it would be almost too cold. But compared to the hotel we were suppose to stay in, this was nothing that we would complain about. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and will certainly look into Candlewood Suites for future out of town stays, [Less]
