"Clean & Consistent"

5
12/11/2018

I've traveled to LaPorte on business about six to eight nights a month for the past three months, and I find myself returning to the Best Western Plus each time. Staff is stable, friendly, and noticeably attentive to the needs of their guests. I've had the opportunity to stay in many different rooms - they have three or four different floor plans across the hotel. All rooms are clean, well maintained, have comfortable beds, and feature basically the same furnishings and amenities - the in-room experience is very consistent from stay to stay, which gives it a feeling of "home" when I'm there. WiFi works well - I've had issues a couple times when staying on the third floor, but their tech support company was able to resolve those issues. In all my visits, I've only had to report a maintenance issue once...and that was simply to "Draino" the tub - which was fixed when I returned to the room. And, I've yet to see a single bug inside the walls of the hotel! Overall, I'm proud to call Best Western Plus my home away from home in LaPorte!

"Nice rooms, amenities - but superior, welcoming staff sets them apart"

Another great year staying at the LaPorte Best Western for a music event. If you're just there for business or a family vacation know that they have great staff/management who truly want to make the stay perfect. The hotel is fine as is, but Best Western would do well to invest in some remodeling of common areas, but the rooms are well maintained, comfy beds, etc. so really no complaints. Food in the restaurant is quite good too!

WONDERFULLaPorte, Manager at Best Western Plus Laporte Hotel & Conference Center, responded to this review
Thank you for your kind review. I am very glad that you enjoyed everything. We really take pride in making each guest have a memorable experience. That's why we are even more excited about our upcoming renovations to make the experience even better. We look forward to seeing you again in the future!

"Clean and very quiet"

26/10/2018

Our room was clean and very, very quiet which was so nice. The bed was comfortable but not the most comfortable we have slept on. The elevator was a little scary as it was old and 'landed' and 'opened' hard. There was definitely interesting architecture all around. Unfortunately, through no fault of the hotel, we can't really rate the breakfast as the morning we were there, they had a problem in the kitchen so breakfast was very limited.

WONDERFULLaPorte, Manager at Best Western Plus Laporte Hotel & Conference Center, responded to this review
I am very glad that you enjoyed your stay. I am, however, sorry that you did not get a chance to enjoy our full breakfast buffet as it normally is. We appreciate your understanding. Thank you so much for your feedback & for your business. We hope to see you back again soon. Until then, Happy Travels!

"LOUD Party ALL NIGHT LONG"

22/10/2018

Hotel was hosting a billard tournament...nice for them, bad for me. Noise ALL NIGHT LONG. When I complained, the desk said "didn't we warn you when you checked in?" As if, as long as they warned me they were covered. A quiet night for sleep - clearly more than you can expect at this location!

WONDERFULLaPorte, Manager at Best Western Plus Laporte Hotel & Conference Center, responded to this review
I apologize that we did not exceed your expectations. We normally do not rent to non-tournament guests during their event since some of our hotel policies are temporarily lifted to accommodate for it. I did see that we had a few guests that were not with the Pool Tournament, such as yourself, and I truly apologize that you had to experience a stay during this time. I know that it must have been a shock and could cause disruption to your stay. We do not normally operate under the conditions that you saw during your time here. We have several events throughout the year that rent the entire hotel for their event such as this one. If you are ever in need of a future stay we would truly appreciate the opportunity to serve you under normal conditions. Thank you for your feedback & your business.

"Comfortable Stay"

Very convenient location. Friendly staff and clean rooms. Breakfast was adequate Will definitely stay again for future stays in Laporte. The hotel has a restaurant that I would like to try out next time.

"Excellent stay!"

29/09/2018

Breakfast was great, the beds were absolutely comfortable, we had zero issues with anything in our room. Mom, who is a senior, did mention that the toilets were a little low, but that still wasn't any issue. The property is suppose to begin remodeling renovations starting the end of this year, and I am very excited to see what comes from it! All the staff are friendly, check in and check out was speedy, and we overall just enjoyed our vacation. Very much wanted to take the bed home because it was that comfortable...

WONDERFULLaPorte, Manager at Best Western Plus Laporte Hotel & Conference Center, responded to this review
We appreciate your feedback! We are very excited about the upcoming renovations as well. We strive to exceed all guest expectations and were happy that we were able to do that during your stay. We hope to see you in the future!

The room needs to be a bit brighter. Currently dark and very drab.The staff were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant breakfast was very good. especially the cheesy eggs :-)Overall this is a good weekend stay. Great people in this area.

WONDERFULLaPorte, Manager at Best Western Plus Laporte Hotel & Conference Center, responded to this review
I am very glad that you enjoyed your stay! We always aim for 5 stars and I believe that with our upcoming renovation you will love it even more. I hope that we will have another opportunity to serve you in the future. Until then, Happy Travels!

"The staff!!!"

10/09/2018

I have spent about 10 weeks at the Best Western in Laporte this year. Being away from home that much takes a toll. Thanks to Crystal and Patricia, it feels a little more like home. They are always waiting at the front desk with a smile, and are truly what makes this business tick. (Best Western, if you're listening, they are the epitome of brand ambassadors).

WONDERFULLaPorte, Manager at Best Western Plus Laporte Hotel & Conference Center, responded to this review
Thank you so much for your kind review. I am so glad to hear that some of our staff members were able to make your stay special. We truly appreciate your business & feedback. We look forward to assisting you in the future.

Great stay. Nice rooms, clean and comfortable. Indoor outdoor pool is very nice. Staff is super friendly and courteous. Free hot breakfast in the morning is great. Try the Asian Zing chicken wings at the restaurant and they were awesome. One of my favorite hotels to stay at.

Thank you for providing us with your feedback & for your business. Until we see you again, Happy Travels!

"Worked for us"

07/08/2018

We stayed here while driving across country. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly. The only odd thing was how warm and humid some inside parts of the hotel were -- maybe due to the pool? Our room was fine; AC worked with no problems, things were clean and orderly. Breakfast was pretty typical for free breakfasts -- perfectly acceptable. I wouldn't have a problem staying here again.

WONDERFULLaPorte, Manager at Best Western Plus Laporte Hotel & Conference Center, responded to this review
We hope that the rest of your trip across the country was safe & beautiful! Thank you so much for staying with us & for your kind review. I hope that if your travels bring you this way again that we have the pleasure of assisting you. We value your business!

"Very nice service"

07/08/2018

Excellent service as I had reserved a room over the phone for my mother who was traveling with my daughters. The staff was very accommodating & took my payment & welcomed my family without any hiccups. They enjoyed the room, the pool and the complimentary breakfast. The only negative they reported was the bar at the entrance with patrons that were using "colorful" language. They avoided the entrance because of this. Everything else was great thought.

WONDERFULLaPorte, Manager at Best Western Plus Laporte Hotel & Conference Center, responded to this review
I am very glad to hear that you had a wonderful time! Thank you so much for staying with us and for taking the time to review our hotel. I am very sorry that you had to encounter other guests that were not being respectful of their surroundings. I will have our staff be attentive to ensure that others are behaving appropriately while around other guests.

"The sticky hotel"

1
06/08/2018

They greet you with a smile, granted if you smile first. The wall all around you are sticky. Dirty dirty and gets worst. Travel into a new dimensions as you seenk into the most uncomfortable matress ever. Who needs a pool when the bathtub water in your room wont go down. I think my best experience was check out. Wa th over priced.

WONDERFULLaPorte, Manager at Best Western Plus Laporte Hotel & Conference Center, responded to this review
I want to assure you that your review will not get lost in another dimension & I want to apologize for not providing an out of this world experience for you. We take all feedback very seriously, so I will have our maintenance crew look into why the bed was uncomfortable. We do live in a very humid part of the country which may have contributed to the "sticky" feeling you are referring to. Our staff perform routine deep cleaning of the hotel public areas and our guest rooms, but regardless I will look into this as well to ensure that all is as it should be. Please know that we will use your feedback to improve. I truly hope that you will give us another opportunity to serve you in the future. Until then, Safe & Happy Travels.

"Worst stay!! Waste of money!"

30/07/2018

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights. This is the worst hotel we have ever stayed in. The shower would not drain. The bathroom always had a funny smell. The jacuzzi is a joke! Water was like warm and there was crud and yucky caked dirt all around the inside! The water looked contaminated! The hotel is definitely worn down. The pool walls are filthy. The floor is filthy.They have a lot of amenities that make it seem like it's a great stay. Don't be fooled!! This was supposed to be my birthday weekend getaway and it was terrible!

WONDERFULLaPorte, Manager at Best Western Plus Laporte Hotel & Conference Center, responded to this review
We apologize for not exceeding your expectations. We try to make every guest's stay wonderful and memorable. We truly hope that you will give us another opportunity to serve you. Again, as mentioned in our response to your google review as well, I have already passed along your feedback to our staff member so that we may remedy the issues that you mentioned.

Front desk was very nice and accommodating to our late check in. Room was clean and bed was super comfortable. We had dinner in the restaurant and the food was delicious. Made a stressful day a lot better.

WONDERFULLaPorte, Manager at Best Western Plus Laporte Hotel & Conference Center, responded to this review
I am very glad that we were able to help ease your stress during your stay! Thank you for your kind review. We look forward to seeing you in the future if you are ever in our area.

"Would NOT Stay Again"

1
27/07/2018

Check in was horrendous! I gave my name with spelling, my id and showed my points membership and the front desk clerk still couldn't get it right. I should have left then. The lobby was clean but the furniture looks old. The walk to the elevator was hot because the hallways are not air conditioned. The room itself is dated. I asked for a room by the elevator, I was placed at the end of the hot corridor. The lighting in the room is very dim. The worst part was I was given a room that hadn't been cleaned. The bed was made but the tub area still had someones liquid soap. There was something furry in a bag under the night stand, and the coffeemaker was out on a table with a dirty rag and a cup in it. The chair to the desk wouldn't move. I did call maintenance and they replaced it. I complained to the front desk and they explained that the cleaning staff was subpar. In their defense they ended up comping my stay. The new room was clean but for me the bed was uncomfortable. Upon check out there was no cart to take my belongings out to the car on. I did ask, and the morning person didn't know where it was nor did she bother to look. so I made three trips in the hot hallway up and down to GET OUT of there. I would not ever stay there again!

WONDERFULLaPorte, Manager at Best Western Plus Laporte Hotel & Conference Center, responded to this review
Again, I am so sorry that you did not enjoy your stay. We sincerely strive to make every guest's stay a great one. We will definitely use your feedback to improve for future guests. I truly hope that we will have another opportunity to serve you in the future.

"Take your family somewhere else"

26/07/2018

When checking in, I was told the room was more than the price I'd been quoted at booking. I showed them the email that confirmed how much my card would be charged and was told I'd be charged that amount. I was informed that the particular room I'd booked had several problems, such as a non working phone and a non functional sofa. Walked into the room and found it filthy. Stains on the floor, walls, and doors. A used hairnet on the floor. It smelled awful. The AC didn't work. On my way down to the front desk, I discovered they'd charged my card over $50 more than the price quoted to me when booking. I brought up the additional charge to my credit card, and was told it would be changed at checkout, and was given a different room. We took our kids down to the pool area, but were unable to enjoy the pool due to the group of adults sitting at the pool smoking and visibly intoxicated. One was so intoxicated that he had to be helped up and needed help walking. Definitely not something children should be exposed to so we left. This has been the worst hotel stay we have ever stayed at. The atrium area has many men coming from the downstairs bar carrying drinks back and forth to their rooms or they just walk around. Two men stood on the second floor and watched a group of young teenage girls as they played together. Definitely creepy and when brought up to staff, they said that they'd look into it, but I saw the same men doing the same thing multiple times tonight. Take your family elsewhere. Our children have asked to go home so we obliged them. Very disappointing.

WONDERFULLaPorte, Manager at Best Western Plus Laporte Hotel & Conference Center, responded to this review
We apologize that we did not exceed your expectations. We strive to ensure that every guest has a wonderful stay while staying with us. I know that some of the things that you mentioned can be remedied by staff member immediately and that others where caused by other guests. While we can not control what other guests do, we can however work to enforce our policies so that they do not disturb other guests. Please know that we will use your feedback to provide a better stay for you and other guests in the future. We also have full room renovations planned for the future & hope that you will give us another opportunity to serve you.

"Disappointed"

22/07/2018

We just spent 3 nights there and was disappointed in a few things for the first time after having stayed there 4 other times over the last few years. It was very clean but the bed had a metal piece sticking out on the right side that I put a big bruise and a inch while in my leg on as I was getting in bed. Rooms need a lot of updates. Not enough outlets to change devices. Not enough lighting in the rooms. Could see good when doing anything at the desk. Room wasn't cleaned out last day so when we got back to our room late there was no towels for showers. Had to go to the desk for them. Loved our trips in the past their but this was disappointing. Thought this hotel didn't allow pets and liked that due to my allergies but there was 3 dogs there and they woke us up barking in the hotel indoor area.

WONDERFULLaPorte, Manager at Best Western Plus Laporte Hotel & Conference Center, responded to this review
Thank you for taking the time to leave a candid review of our location. We appreciate you letting us know how we can improve for our guests. I will bring these items to the attention to our maintenance & housekeeping department so that we may improve & prevent these from happening to another guest. We hope that we will have another opportunity to serve you in the future. We appreciate your long loyalty with staying with us & hope that we continue the relationship. Thank you again.

"Shake my head "

20/07/2018

I stay at hotels all around America & this one was one to complain about. Hallways hot, sweating bringing luggage to my room. The WiFi was not operable & at check in it was completely ignored. My bed had a crescent/ banana shape to it that didn't allow me to get comfortable & sleep. The ac unit for the room was behind a wall and it wasn't till 5:30 in the am the room was at a comfortable temperature. However the stained smelly comforter didn't help either. It was sheet comforter sheet. Don't order the wings at the bar downstairs, at least not on 75¢ Wing night. The biscuits & gravy the next morning was a meal for the trash; absolute leftover slurry. Upon check out I made it known that this was the “worst night sleep I've ever had!” But I wasn't early enough there was already another older couple at the desk complaining about their stay. They laughed at my exiting comment & I turned to let them know “that was not a joke!” The hotel clerk asked me for my information so the manager could call & possibly arrange a discount or maybe even a refund, a simple call & apology would have kept me from writing this. I waited all day. Nothing! Therefore if you're in the area I'd highly consider the travel lodge just next door.

WONDERFULLaPorte, Manager at Best Western Plus Laporte Hotel & Conference Center, responded to this review
We sincerely strive to exceed all guest expectations. We have experienced a very hot summer with feedback such as yours. We are currently in the beginning phases of a renovation which includes work on our roof & AC units. I am so sorry that we were experiencing difficulty during your stay with the AC. We do offer a full breakfast buffet along with guest rooms and we normally receive good feedback regarding the items we serve for breakfast and in our restaurant/bar, so I will bring your comments to the chef to see why they may have received your negative reaction. We sincerely hope that you will give us another opportunity to serve you in the future. and to see all the changes to come.

13/07/2018

My wife and I stayed here last night while traveling through Indiana. We arrived after midnight and the late night desk clerk was wonderful. She got us checked in quickly, was very personable, gave us excellent information and our breakfast passes. The room was quiet, very large with a great king bed. Mirror and sink are outside of bathroom which helps getting ready. The water was hot with great pressure. Breakfast is included and is a full breakfast with cereal, fresh fruit, yogurt, donuts, muffins, breads, eggs, sausage, scrambled eggs with ham and cheese, gravy and biscuits, waffles, coffee, juice, etc. Great nights stay with a very filling breakfast included. We would certainly stay here again! Jill and Tim Brafford

This Best Western accommodation in LaPorte, IN offers a comfortable, quiet stay in a nice town. It is located away from the traffic on the Indiana Toll Road, so it's quiet. I chose this location purposely for that reason. It is very reasonable in price. Its staff is extremely friendly and courteous. Breakfast in the morning has a variety of foods. This BW allows pets to stay with you as well.

WONDERFULLaPorte, Manager at Best Western Plus Laporte Hotel & Conference Center, responded to this review

"Avoid this place...."

1
09/05/2018

Initially made a reservation for 3 nights, upon arrival I was told that the reservation was for only two nights. It appears that they run air conditioning in the lobby, bar and dining area. The rest of the hotel was filled with hot stale air including the rooms. When you arrived at your room you had to turn the air conditioning on. My sink and tub both filled with reddish colored water. The tub would not drain. the night staff offered a 20 dollar discount for each night in order to apologize for the water issue and were kind enough to tell me that the room had recently been closed for maintenance. I let her know the maintenance was not complete. Upon checking out, the desk clerk could not explain or understand the rates on the bill. Since my credit card had two pending charges on it, I was looking for an explanation. Instead of signing the check out form I left a note on it requesting a call with an explanation. That was ignored. Since I did not hear back from the hotel, the next day when I got home I called them. Both the assistant manager and general manager were extremely rude. They actually counted 8 consecutive calls that they picked up the phone and hung up on as they counted them. I placed a call to the corporate office to complain but since they are a franchise, there's not much they will do. BEWARE IF YOU STAY AT THIS LOCATION.

WONDERFULLaPorte, Manager at Best Western Plus Laporte Hotel & Conference Center, responded to this review
As we've already stated in your other negative reviews on other sites; I apologize that management was never made aware that you requested a call back. We strive to exceed all guest expectations and I am truly sorry this did not happen for you. However, when a guest becomes verbally abusive towards staff members using curse words and very offensive language that's when we have to terminate a phone call with a guest. We made several attempts to rectify the situation, but when they are not accepted and also met with hostility, anger and unacceptable treatment/comments towards staff members that's when it becomes difficult to help resolve an issue. I believe we offered many solutions and multiple apologies yet they were still not accepted. I am sorry that this was the outcome. For others who may be reading this, I just want you to know the post I'm replying on is not entirely accurate to my encounter with this guest.

"Convenience isn't everything"

This hotel is in dire need of a remodel. While the rooms themselves are decent (bed was fine, room was mostly clean), the hotel in general is run-down, somewhat dirty and just has a dirty, dank feeling. The atrium area is fantastic for socializing, but also needs a complete overhaul.

WONDERFULLaPorte, Manager at Best Western Plus Laporte Hotel & Conference Center, responded to this review
I apologize that we did not exceed your expectations. I am happy, however, to let you know that we have full renovations planned for this Summer Season. We will have a whole new look, new mattresses, vinyl flooring, etc. We truly value your business and hope that you will visit us in the future to experience the new look & feel. Until then, Travel Safely.

The interior could use a little modernizing but the room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the staff was friendly. It's a good value for the price. I'd recommend this hotel for travelers even though it's a bit off the tollway.

I'm glad that you enjoyed the hotel & I'm also happy to let you know that we will be going through renovations this Summer to make the atmosphere more modern for our guests.

"Staff Extremely Loud, Furniture Falling Apart in the King Suite"

26/03/2018

Staff cart rattling and making noise at 6AM both Sat & Sun mornings was awful. I think the twin towers probably fell making less racket. I suppose if you are awake by 6AM and not falling out of bed from the noise it could be acceptable. Sleeper sofa was very old and falling apart, even young kids complained about it.

WONDERFULLaPorte, Manager at Best Western Plus Laporte Hotel & Conference Center, responded to this review
I apologize that noise disrupted your stay & that we did not exceed your expectations during your hotel stay. Our housekeeping staff do not start their day until roughly 9am, so I think it may have been noise from other guests that may have woke you. Our goal is to make each guest's stay memorable & comfortable. I will definitely have our maintenance team look into the furniture in our King Suite to ensure that everything is taken care of. Thank you for your candid feedback. We truly appreciate your business and hope that we will have another opportunity to serve you in the future. Crystal H. Assistant GM

"Stayed in all LaPorte Hotels and found this one to be by far the best"

20/03/2018

This hotel never disappoints. Problem resolution, when they arise, is immediate and satisfactory. I love staying here with my Grandson and he and I love the indoor/outdoor pool. Great for inclement weather should it arise during our annual 4th of July stay. Sometimes, in Indiana, its just to darn hot to go to the beach on the 4th and this offers a nice alternative after the Parade. I look forward to staying here in my usual patio/atrium room 4th of July 2018, especially since I am bringing a special guest with me to share this family experience. My birth Mother who I have just met from California will be meeting her Grandson and Great Grandson for the first time. We are overjoyed.

Stayed one night with family. Rooms were clean but show wear and tear. Beds sank in the middle. Breakfast was great. Lots of choices. Staff was friendly and helpful. Could hear trains as they passed all night. Did not wake me but others in my family were awakened. Average stay at best.

29/01/2018

Had a great time at this hotel. The kids were able to swim and enjoy a hot tub. The hotel is under new management and they are doing small things to entice the guests as big improvements are coming. There is a whole new staff excelt the maintenance man who is great and friendly. The desk clerk and I had common ground and were able to hold conversation several times throughout the night. The kids were safe and free to roam the hotel to play in the game room and there were many places to order food. After the kids went to bed i went to the bar. It was very clean and had many choices of cocktails. It also had many choices of beer. Normally they have entertainment in there but the bartender carried conversation with me while i drank. The breakfast still needs to improve but blows away any continental breakfast. Id reccomend this hotel to anyone. Get ready for Notre Dame season 2018. Go Irish

"Extreme noise in the hallway and atrium until 4:30am"

06/01/2018

Hotel allowed NYE celebrations in the hallways and main floor open-air atrium until 4:30am. Called about it starting around midnight. Problem never solved. Upon check out, expressed my dissatisfaction at which time the desk clerk stated she had received the same complaint from other guests at check out that morning.

WONDERFULLaPorte, Manager at Best Western Plus Laporte Hotel & Conference Center, responded to this review
On behalf of our staff I sincerely apologize that we did not exceed your expectations. Many of our guests were celebrating the New Year a little past midnight to welcome in 2018. After that point we were asking guests to refrain from noise and disruptions. I am sorry if any of the guests disturbed your stay however. Our hotel, under normal circumstances, does not allow celebrations such as this. We hope that you will have another opportunity to stay with us in the future. We truly value your business. Crystal H.

I was stranded due to car problems. Traveling with my dog they had a room. It was clean comfortable and safe. What set them above the other places I have stayed was the staff. They helped me find a repair shop open on a Sunday, help find transportation and gave me late check out so I had a place to stay until my car was done. A little kindness goes a long was and they went a mile to help me. I will definitely stay there again

"Couldn't ever think would acceptable to anyone!!"

22/11/2017

We booked several rooms at this hotel because of its distance to our final desination of Chicago. Would you believe that upon arrival we were told that they would not be any water available after 7 am the next day. NO WATER!! Replacing boiler needed to shut off water until replaced. The management thought it was ok to book rooms without water!! After 10 hours on road couldn't find another hotel that had rooms because everybody before us had already cancelled. Do yourself a favor never stay at this hotel. Even with the hours we had water it was a very run down, not clean, hotel and the even mattresses bowed in the middle. Wouldn't stay I againf they gave rooms away.

WONDERFULLaPorte, Manager at Best Western Plus Laporte Hotel & Conference Center, responded to this review
We sincerely apologize that our unanticipated issue caused you distress. Unfortunately rooms were booked before we knew our boiler needed to be replaced. Our staff along with a local company did their best to resolve the issue promptly. We also tried to help relocate many reservations that were affected by this event. Our team works together to resolve issues as quickly as possible to not disappoint our guests. I hope that you will truly consider staying with us again in the future since this was an isolated issue. We value your business and hope to serve you in the future. Crystal H. Assistant GM

Staff is amazing. So kind and helpful when I was having a bad day and needed to stay since my heat at home stopped working. (I live near the hotel) The bar on site was really fun to kill time in. Good food and drinks. It was also my first time there and I will be back. Comfortable bed, and had a fridge and microwave we used to reheat our food. Very convenient. Everything was clean and comfortable. Managers Crystal and Patricia were so helpful and have an excellent staff. I can't recommend a more friendly and welcoming hotel if you are ever in need.

Your review warms my heart. It is so great to hear that our entire staff were able to make your stay even more enjoyable. I hope that they get the issue with your heat resolved quickly.

Noisy kids from a football tournament running around screaming at all hours of the night and early morning, staff did nothing about it, DIRTY, BROWN WATER. Will never stay at a best western again. There was a fight at the bar, the cops had to be at the hotel because of all the wild kids but didn't do anything to stop them.

WONDERFULLaPorte, Manager at Best Western Plus Laporte Hotel & Conference Center, responded to this review
These are not normal occurrences at our location. The city of La Porte was having issues within the water department that we were unaware of at the time. We apologize that this issue affected your stay. We employ local police to help staff with security. We were monitoring our sold out weekend as much as we could given the volume of guests.

03/11/2017

Disappointed with room prices Each time visited prices changed. When asked why the price difference, no explanation except when events are going on prices are higher. I was there for 3 different events happening and each time prices were higher. Last time even exceeded prices on room door. My last visit due to extreme prices (to this hotel).

WONDERFULLaPorte, Manager at Best Western Plus Laporte Hotel & Conference Center, responded to this review
Our prices fluctuate due to many reasons such as season, special events, etc just as airline tickets do. I am very sorry to hear this is the reason that is unappealing to you. If you are ever staying for business or a group we are happy to work with your company to negotiate something for you. We do have certain blackout dates that may apply to all guests, but not on a normal basis. We truly value your business and hope that we may see you in the future if you are ever in the area.

"Friendly Staff - HORRIBLE Sleeping Conditions"

2
31/10/2017

I was looking forward to this stay. The staff was very friendly and helpful throughout the hotel. Unfortunately it stopped there. I had the most horrible night's sleep ever. I don't like the little marshmallow pillows. I like full size. And the mattress was absolutely horrible. It was hard to get out of the dip I fell into each time I laid down. I couldn't even move. I kept falling into the dip in the middle of the bed. Each time I got out it felt like I was crawling out of a water bed and had to climb over the wooden rails (except there were no wooden rails - that was the side of the mattress). Ended up sleeping a couple of hours in the chair, before giving up at 5 a.m. and just leaving. I would NEVER recommend, nor would I stay here again. The room also had a smell and my daughter and I sneezed dozens of times while in the room and had red puffy eyes after being in the room for an hour.

WONDERFULLaPorte, Manager at Best Western Plus Laporte Hotel & Conference Center, responded to this review
This is very surprising to hear. We normally get great reviews on the comfort of our beds and pillows. I will be sure to have our staff members inspect the room you stayed in to ensure that everything is inspected and corrected if needed. I can assure you that this may be a very isolated incident and we would be very grateful to assist you in the future. We appreciate your candid feedback and will use it to improve for our guests. If I can ever assist you personally I can be found at 219-362-4585 at ext. 103. Thank you again, Crystal H. Assistant GM

"Poor Service Desk"

30/10/2017

Upon arrival I paid for 2 nights in cash, had to leave a credit card for the $30 charge. Upon departure the lady that checked us in never marked that we paid in cash, so my credit card was charged all weekend. They had to call said lady in to verify everything and then their fix was to just give me cash back, which theytried to do in $5s for the whole bill. I paid cash so I wouldn't have any problems or put it on my credit card and had to do so anyway. I had 2 reservations at this hotel for this stay and the same lady did it to both rooms and both rooms had been paid for in cash. Just unacceptable in my book, but this is where out pool tournaments are held so we have to put up with it.

WONDERFULLaPorte, Manager at Best Western Plus Laporte Hotel & Conference Center, responded to this review
On behalf of our staff, I would like to personally apologize that one of our newer employees made a mistake on your account.

"Powerless"

1
16/10/2017

The power went out several times the afternoon and evening of the 15th. This was not the hotels fault but the fact that the generator was not working correctly left most of the rooms without power. After the last power outage there were no working emergency lighting in a 4 floor hotel. This is a major fire code violation. We navigated the stairs by cell phone. The young staff was abused by some customers which made me wonder where the manager was. I presume it is a salary position and that the person lived within driving distance. The staff and the customers could of used the support from a processional. Obviously the systems are not tested or maintained. Due to the terrible weather no one was inclined to venture out to look for another hotel. We were so relieved to hear that some guest would receive as much as a 20% discount on the fee. No more BW for me.

WONDERFULLaPorte, Manager at Best Western Plus Laporte Hotel & Conference Center, responded to this review
We sincerely apologize that you were not able to experience our facility as you should have during your stay. Our General Manager on duty, who was present until 2am & returned hours after that, did her best to ensure all guests safety & well being during our unanticipated power outage caused by storms in the area. Due the size of our facility she was needed at many locations to help with guests' needs during the outage along with other employees who volunteered to come in to help during the outage. I know the power outage inconvenienced many other local hotels, businesses, & residences as well. I wanted to address your concerns about the emergency safety of our facility; We have annual inspections from our Life & Fire Safety Security Solutions company along with monthly on site inspections performed by our maintenance team. Our guests' safety is at the top of our priorities list. Our facility was inspected again for safety purposes and no violations were found as result.

"A very old and dumpy motel Shoiuld be torn down"

21/09/2017

The hotel clerk greeted us upon arrival and was very friendly. We asked him about a guest laundry which he said was by the vending machines on the 3rd floor where our room was located. When we arrived at our room, and entered the carpeting was stained the sofa bed was from the 70's and very uncomfortable to sit on. When you entered the bathroom to use the toilet we found that when sitting on the toilet, you felt like you were sitting on the floor. It was very hard to get on and off the toilet. The bed was uncomfortable and it was hard to sleep. When we turned in for the night someone tried to access our room and that was terrifying experience. We have stayed in many motels and we have never had anyone try to enter the room. The elevator that we needed to take was very old and it seemed like it was from the dark ages After getting out of the elevator, the atrium was deserted and we felt like we were there alone. It was very eerie. I finally found the guest laundry hidden In a corner by the vending machines on the 2nd floor. The machines did work, however, they didn't appear to be very clean. The air conditioning unit was in an alcove by the bathroom so when you were in bed, you couldn't get any benefit from the air conditioning. I would never stay here again and I advise you to keep on going and not stay at this disgusting motel.

We traveled to Laporte Indiana for a wedding. This hotel was the only place recommended to stay . We arrived early so that we could relax get dressed for the wedding and mingle with other wedding guests. Our room smelled musty and moldy and we got ready as quickly as possible and left. The complementary breakfast was in my opinion inedible. We actually packed in the morning and went home to shower because we did not want to spend any more time than necessary in the room. The room appeared dirty to us. For $125 it was a huge disappointment. I'm not sure what their regular rate is, but I'm surprised that it was this amount for being a wedding block. Would not consider Best Western anywhere after this experience.

I do appreciate when the outside perimeter doors are locked for safety and these doors seemed to be unlocked front, side and back at all times. The other thing that was unpleasant for us is the pool did not open in the morning until 10:00 am with check out at 11:00 am, our grandson's love the pool and we appreciate that they can get up and go swim until we get ready to check out. So that was very disappointing. The game area while nice proved to be an expense since the pool was not open. That was disappointing.

Thank you for taking the time to complete your review. We take our guests safety & security very seriously.

The staff are friendly and kind. The Hotel is dated, not vary clean, and dated. There are parts of hotel that have strong smell of mold. The paint is old. The carpets are vary old, dark, and seemed from may years ago. The Inner court had fake plants that are lots of Dust. A front lobby bathroom was closed with bunch of towels in front of it pilled up, with a tape on the Door.

"Disappointing"

14/08/2017

This hotel was extremely disappointing. It was dirty, smelly and very noisy. The hotel pool was advertised as closing at 11 pm, but the staff closed it an hour early. The towels in the pool and fitness area were extremely rough, to the point where it scratched my husbands face. We had a couple dead bugs in our room and there were many cobwebs with spiders on the ceilings in the hallway.

WONDERFULLaPorte, Manager at Best Western Plus Laporte Hotel & Conference Center, responded to this review
I would like to personally apologize that we did not exceed your expectations during your stay. We will take your direct feedback and use it to improve the performance of our staff & facility. It is extremely upsetting to hear of feedback such as yours since this is not the normal feedback that we receive from our guests. I did want to clarify that our Pool/Jacuzzi hours have been posted as 10am-10pm for several years. If there was a location that you saw it posted otherwise please let us know where. Thank you for taking the time to review us and we sincerely hope that you will give us another opportunity to serve you in the future.

"Outdated hotel with broken furniture"

1
07/08/2017

When I booked the hotel I called and asked for a suite since I have 2 kids and a set of infant twins. They were sold out but told me the king with a sofa pull out was the largest they had so I booked it. When we got to the room there was no bedding for the sofa pull out. Once the bedding came, I realized the pull out for kids was broken. It is around 10 pm by this time and babies are crying and ready to go to bed. They gave me another room. I wen to look at it. This room was somewhat of a mini suite with a king bed and a pull out. Much larger than what I had. So I knew then that the lady I talked to on the phone when I booked the room did not tell me the truth. Nevertheless, that pull out bed in the couch was broken as well. They gave me keys to a third room. By this time it is past 10:30 and the babies are so tired they are screaming. This third room only had a king bed and no pull out. This wouldn't work as there was no place for the 2 older children to sleep. They then gave us a fourth room. This room had a king room with a sofa pullout. It was by far the smallest room we had seen that night but the sofa bed wasn't broken so we took it. By the time we got all of our belongings and children moved, it was well past 11:30 pm and the babies were so tired they were screaming. Given all of that trouble I would have thought the hotel would have offered to comp us at least one night however no such offer was made.

This hotel is centrally located, but is in a much needed update. The front desk staff was outstanding. The free breakfast ends at 9:30 am so get there early. The breakfast was pretty good. I was told they do offer some type of entertainment in the evening, however, I was spending time with family.

"Hotel was OK, but expected more for the price"

30/07/2017

I do not consider myself to be overly picky when it comes to hotels, but for the price I paid, I was surprised at how outdated and worn down the hotel was. The front desk person was not very friendly. I was travelling with my kids and mother in law and we asked if we could have rooms near each other. He made no effort to accommodate us and in fact put us as far away from each other as possible on separate floors. The hallways were very hot and stuffy. The room was clean enough, but very outdated. The entire hotel could use an overhaul.

"Pet friendly, decent rates, but I'll try someplace else next time."

2
22/07/2017

So this is a decent hotel. The people here were great. They tried SO hard. The room was clean, and the property was fairly well kept, without too many obvious flaws. The rate was good, although they didn't offer a state rate, only a "first responders" rate which is the first I've heard of that. They gave us a good rate, though and that was fine. The breakfast was reasonable. The hotel was set up as an old 50's or 60's lake community hotel. Only a little updating has happened I suspect. The room let out on a sliding glass door that went into a common space...a little weird to me, but that's OK. Made for a VERY good night's sleep--no sunlight to waken us. THe hot tub was closed when we arrived, which is SO aggravating, I don't know why they're not open 24/7 everywhere. Why have them and close early? No good reason. The main thing though, it wasn't in the best part of town, and it would be wise to exercise caution when in the hotel coming and going and such. Overall I'd cross this one off my list, but it was hard to find a hotel that was pet friendly in this part of the country.

Front desk employees were rude and never at their desk. The restaurant was so-so, although our server Joy was very attentive and did extra to satisfy our breakfast as did the chef. We did see other employees standing in one spot as guests were coming in. Very unprofessional. Our room was not the cleanest and the housekeepers didn't seem the cleanest themselves.

"Avoid this hotel. Not worth the hassle."

04/07/2017

I checked into this hotel for 2 nights for my sister's and it was nothing but trouble from the start. The plumbing was sub-standard and it took forever just to get hot water for a shower and then to top it off I actually found literal BLOOD STAINS under my pillow when I went to go to bed. The staff moved me to another room because they said that housekeeping was unavailable and then offered me nothing more than a $30 discount on a $264 2-night stay after I tried to voice my concerns over having to move rooms in the middle of the night due to actual biological contamination in my room. Avoid this place at all costs.

For the most part it was a very good time. I think they should have a few more options on the breakfast and that if you have 4 people per room you should get four breakfast vouchers . A double room usually means you have more than 2 people. Other than that very nice employees and very good at their job.

WONDERFULLaPorte, Manager at Best Western Plus Laporte Hotel & Conference Center, responded to this review
We are glad that you enjoyed your stay! The base rate for all group rates includes breakfast for 2 adults.

The hotel itself is quite clean and the staff is very helpful and friendly! The pool is a little chilly and not toddler or infant recommended. Also, be sure to take a towel to the pool, as none are provided in the pool area. The hotel has lots of great seating options and is easy to navigate. The breakfast was good and coffee offered at all times of the day, great! Overall, the room was clean and the staff friendly. For an older hotel, it is kept as well as can be expected. The rooms have been updated, however the beds are a little worn. I would recommend this hotel if you could get it for less than $100/night.

I can't begin to express how satisfied I was with this place. I stayed for one night. I was working in the area and just needed a beer and to relax. I walked in and they got me in ASAP. My room was very clean with a nice TV and one of the nicest bathrooms I've seen at a hotel in awhile. I went to Rothers Pub down stairs for dinner! WOW! The food was extraordinary! The waiter/bartender Dean did an excellent job. He gave me his recommendation on a beer and it was the best beer I had ever had! So glad I stayed and had a few. He even had 4 guys walk in 10 minutes before the kitchen closed so he went to the kitchen and had them stay open longer so those guys could eat! You don't find that kind of service much anymore! I will definitely be staying here when I'm in the area for work. This is again another great experience I have had with a Best Western hotel. I actually signed up for their rewards program because of how satisfied I am with the hotels. I always look for a Best Western no matter where I'm at.

"Not Impressed"

25/04/2017

When we arrived to the room I saw a piece of plastic on the floor, picked it up and threw it away wondering if it was just missed with cleaning. Then I noticed a brownish-red spot on the bathroom floor, took a wet napkin and was able to wipe it up easily. Then as I walked the rest of the room and saw more trash that hadn't been swept up. I realized the floor hadn't been cleaned well and called the front desk to report the problem. The receptionist apologize for the mess and sent a member of housekeeping up to the room. The member of housekeeping that showed up was very pleasant and did a great job cleaning the room. She also apologized for what hasn't been done well. The beds in the room were very springy and squeaky-you could fill the frame of springs through the padding. This made for an uncomfortable nights sleep. I personally did not fill that the two receptionists I encountered were very friendly but whatever. I also felt it was a bit of a rip off to have to pay for breakfast for any additional guest over 2 per room (meaning if you have 4 in your room it will be an additional $14 for everyone to have breakfast) That said, The hotel does have a unique "Flintstone" feel to it that the kids found entertaining. Also had a pool, putt putt course, shuffleboard, arcade room that kids really enjoyed. I was with a group of schools for a volleyball tournament and the hotel was very suitable for this reason.... the rooms not so much. I also did appreciate an in room refrigerator and a late check out

"Good Stay - let the water run before using sink!"

12/04/2017

The hotel, staff and check-in process was great. The room itself, not too bad, had two nice queen beds, clean and organized. The bathroom seems outdated and when using the sink, I had to let the water run for about 5 minutes as the water was brown - from pipes being changed - is what I was told. Each day, the brown water came out, from both the sink and when using the shower. The hotel is nice, but needs to be updated in my opinion. Modernization is a necessity. It may be long overdue for the Best Western of LaPorte. It was a pleasant stay, I reported the problem and they were accommodating and asked if I wanted to move.

We recently stayed here with our paintball team while playing at Sherwood Forest. The rooms were very comfortable and the hotel looked very neat and well kept up.

We enjoyed their pool and hot tub also while there and have no complaints at all. We will definitely stay here again!

The front desk staff is amazing at taking care of a long, line and helping every person with a smile. I cannot say enough about the employees that work there. They really care and take pride in what they do, all across the board... Great Problem Solvers and it is obvious that they care and take pride in their jobs too.

"Raised Rates"

5
31/10/2016

The hotel was very nice. The front desk staff were very helpful and very friendly. My only complaint is that we had to pay over twice what the regular rate was because of a Notre Dame game that was played that afternoon. It was late and we had no options as we were driving through the area. A couple of hours after we had checked in, another couple came in and were given a room at the regular rate. So we had to pay over $200 for a room that they got for $90+. I happened to be in the lobby as they checked in so I know this was true. This definitely soured my experience and my opinion of the hotel.

WONDERFULLaPorte, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS La Porte Hotel & Conference Center, responded to this review
Rates do fluctuate due to seasonal events unfortunately, just as airlines do. We hope that this will not prevent you from staying with us in the future. They earlier the booking, the better change at avoiding some of the higher rates. Thank you for your review. Crystal H. Assistant GM

"Horrible place to stay"

1
27/10/2016

I stayed here a few nights ago and it is a horrible place to stay. Some of the staff is nice but it has a old smell to the place and one of the floors smells like urine. There is mold growing on the walls. I stayed in room 140 and the housekeeping department is loud. Also my toilet in the room was nasty looking it was clean but you can tell it is really old or just recently started being cleaned.

"Great hotel, service, and amenities."

22/10/2016

There are plenty of things to do for fun, for all ages, all at the hotel. The pool is quite fun; swimming from the inside to the outside, and the hot tub were huge hits. Then, there is the game room. I played several games of pool with my teenage sons, and they played quite a few games of air hockey. There is also a mini putt putt golf course, and shuffle board. If you get hungry, there is a restaurant right here with wonderful Cobb salad. The breakfast buffet was wonderful; the selection is outstanding, and the food is delicious. There is also a pub, which I was told has live entertainment every weekend. All of that being said, the best part of our stay was the staff. From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel welcome. Every staff member that I passed in the hallway smiled and generally said hello. Any time I had a question or needed anything, the ladies at the front desk were so friendly and helpful. No matter how many guests were at the front desk, or how many people were calling, the front desk staff were able to help the guests at the desk while managing the phones as well, and it didnt seem to slow them down, make them less attentive, or impact their cheerful demeanor.

Quiet, comfortable, clean, rooms. Staff was friendly and helpful. Can't comment on the breakfast as I was too tired to go down after a long tiring trip in heavy rain. They now having automatic sliding doors at the front which is a great help getting in with luggage if you are alone.

07/10/2016

For the price I couldn't beat this hotel. We got free breakfast, the internet was decent enough and the staff was extremely friendly. We were staying in the area on our way back home on a road trip and it was a welcome change from the last few hotels.

"Outdated and pricey"

26/09/2016

We paid $150 (that includes a $50 discount) for a room that was very outdated and questionable cleanliness. There were stains on the sofa, bed dust ruffle and carpet. The value was extremely poor for what we paid.

11/09/2016

Bugs in bath tub, paper plates for breakfast, no water pressure in tub and poor drainage in tub. Will not be back. This hotel is located near our boat slip in the lake and would be ideal to stay for us and family. I will not recommend this hotel to anyone.

"Unsafe, unclean, unacceptable rooms"

1
09/09/2016

We had to switch rooms two times before finding an "acceptable", i.e. not awful, room for our family. The first room smelled so strong of chemicals that we all felt sick within the first 10 minutes. The second room smelled SO STRONG OF MOLD that we could not even walk in the room. This was not being picky. It was literally an issue of safety. When we told the staff, they said they would take something off our bill, but never did. This is one of the worst hotels I have ever stayed at.

Saw the reviews and wasn't expecting much. We were pleasantly surprised, friendly staff, clean rooms, nice pool (also clean) and an amazingly good breakfast buffet.

"AWFUL stay"

31/08/2016

The beds were damp. We were told that was because they cleaned the floors earlier in the day or week. It was extremely humid in the halls and therefore the dampness just hung in the air and landed on the bedding. Very dissatisfied.

WONDERFULLaPorte, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS La Porte Hotel & Conference Center, responded to this review
We did just have our carpets cleaned by a professional company recently. I am unsure as to whether or not that is the cause for the issue with the bed. I can assure you that this issue is definitely not a normal occurrence. I am so sorry that you had to experience this as it is an isolated incident. Thank you again for your review. Crystal H.

"The hallways wreak of urine, the rooms of mildew. Hotel is falling apart."

29/08/2016

This hotel was absolutely disgusting. And to charge 120.00 to stay in it is just insane. The only reason we stayed is because we had no other options available in the area, and this was the location that was recommended by the bride and groom of the wedding we were attending. We could not get out of there fast enough. Hallways smelled of urine, ceilings brown with water stains and falling apart. Tub would not drain. You felt like you needed to shower just standing in this hotel. It should be torn down immediately. I'd like a refund. Disgrace.

WONDERFULLaPorte, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS La Porte Hotel & Conference Center, responded to this review
Our carpets were just cleaned professionally in all public areas and in our guest rooms to ensure that they are up to expectations. We are also in the process of completing maintenance projects around our facility to fix any leaks that may have caused the stained ceiling tiles. We apologize that things were not up to your (or our) expectations. Just know that we take all feedback very seriously.

29/08/2016

mattresses need to be replaced and toilet fixtures updated to accommodate an adult. Good staff but restaurant and bar hours should be expanded. Hotel has good layout but needs elevator replaced or modernized. Rooms are roomy and with better mattresses and toilet fixtures would be very comfortable.

"Dirty & Dated"

28/08/2016

We travel often and this hotel tops the list as one of the worst. It is extremely outdated and every inch of it is filthy. We would have checked out if we could have found another hotel close enough to the event we were attending. The entire building inside, including the rooms, are painted dirty gray stucco with stains and drip marks everywhere. The elevator floor is sticky, the floor buttons are upside down and caked with crud, but the stairwells are even worse. I don't think our two queen bed room had been cleaned in a long time. The bathroom floor had dried spills on it, the bathtub had about a dozen bugs in it, the carpet had old food crumbs on it, the sheets had several hairs on them, and the bed-skirts are made of vinyl and streaked with stains. I can't even believe that this hotel remains open in this condition.

Hotel is in need of total remodel !! Exterior does not reflect interior. Price gouging because of convention in town. Elevator is falling apart, not working properly , scary ride.

"Employees Great but Hotel Outdated"

2
14/08/2016

For the price we paid at other hotels this hotel was not a bargain. The hotel is old and defianately nedds updating. The breakfast food reminds me of school cafateria food, no variety and substandard in quality. The spread has to be more of a variety. The fresh fruit was limited to Apples and oranges, still with the UPC label in them.. If Best Western is reading this review I hope they take it seriously and invest some money in this property..it is so outdated. The area of Lapoint seems to be more of a middle income area and I am not sure how this hotel is doing as far as sales or customers, but a critacal review like mine is not good for business. The gym and game room were not air conditioned, nor was the remainder of the hotel, with the exception of the rooms and the restaurant. The only thing this hotel has going is the dedicated staff who worked so hard keeping it clean and running, they were all very professional and polite, I give them all a 10...but you could ony bail out so much water out of a sinking ship..

rooms ready for an upgrade, clean but over priced, service was good. the bright spot was the bar. Appetizers were great, drinks generous and service good. fast food close by, decent Mexican restaurant a block away. attended PGI International Fireworks convention and found the local people helpful and pleasant.

"bugs"

11/08/2016

Run down, noisy, bugs galore. Room key malfunctioned. Two different kinds of bugs literally everywhere. Thank God for the bartender. Sad that he has to work in a place like that. The staff was not to blame. The management needs to update this facility in a bad way. Atrium was about 100 degrees. The room AC units face into the facility. Might be ok in the winter but not in August. Sink broke, Stains on the floor and the couch. Just a dirty place all around. Gouged on price due to the convention in town. This is why I do not like to travel any more.

"Where the F is our room"

08/08/2016

Our flirty clerk loved the clientele of the hotel because the truckers bring her food. Our room was located on the second floor. After walking aimlessly down a hall, the elevators were located. We took the elevator to the second floor, which opened to falling down ceiling tiles and sliding glass doors with no way to open them. After walking down the hall, we still didn't see a door that a key would open. We returned to the front desk and asked again. The clerk was different and was kind to say, it's a sneaky way and told us that we had to walk further down the hall, go through the hidden doorway and walk back down the hall to our room. Finally found our room, cooky signs and all. View was of the roof and air conditioners. Breakfast was traditional edible. Clean, but nothing special.

The staff and service was second to none. Our room was clean and comfortable. the property has a little age and wear to it, and typical things that come along with it.

"Nothing like I expected, AT ALL!"

18/07/2016

The management is pathetic! They DO NOT care about the well being of their guests! The "free breakfast" is a joke. The fruit weren't fresh, the juice was mostly water, & if you weren't there 6:30 AM, you'd be lucky to get anything at all. Also, if you have more than 2 people in your room, someone doesn't get to have breakfast because you only get enough "vouchers" for two people; regardless of the fact that you have to pay extra if there are more than 2 adults in the room. I'm a 22 year old female; while walking outside to the parking lot with my boyfriend, a male janitor I assume to be somewhere between 50 & 60 years old decided it was a good idea to look my body up & down. My boyfriend confronted him & he proceeded to give us attitude about it. He then tells the management that he was threatened & we were asked to leave the property. When we attempted to tell the management he was looking at me inappropriately, we were told the janitor "was just doing his job". Never once did they listen to anything we tried to say to them. The entire inside of the place smelled of chlorine & urine! I would NEVER suggest this hotel unless you're completely DESPERATE!!

"Filthy room"

1
18/07/2016

Check-in took 20 minutes of waiting in line. The hallway and room smelled like marijuana and cigarette smoke. The room had stains on the comforter, balls of hair on the floor, and dirty chairs. It was the filthiest hotel I have ever stayed at. I thought if I was paying over $115 I would at least get a clean room, but I was mistaken.

"Nice location and decent hotel but expected better"

11/07/2016

We attended a wedding in the area and our family chose this hotel. I was impressed with the hotel desk clerk, Deseray, in how she handled a difficult guest in line in front of us -- very professional and courteous. The hotel was clean and fairly quiet but was quite dated. Our hotel door didn't close by itself and the toilet ran continually unless you opened it up and "helped" the float manually. The shower/bath was old and had to changed a lot due to hot/cold blasts. The beds were comfortable and the air conditioning worked well and wasn't too loud. Our room was on the second floor and opened to the hall on one side and had a sliding glass door that opened to another hall that overlooked the lounge area. We had fun with our family in the lounge area. The gathering area was nice but some of the chairs were permanently reclined. The pool was nearby but closed fairly early (10pm). We each got a voucher for breakfast but were a bit disappointed. The food was typical of any free breakfast at an economy hotel. They had eggs, oatmeal, biscuits/gravy, and waffles. There was very little fresh fruit/vegetables options. If you want tea you need to ask for it specifically. Only coffee is offered in the food area. For the price, I expected better. But the service was good and the location was great. Shopping, lakes, restaurants are all close by.

"Old Dump needs bull dozed"

07/07/2016

Should have paid attention to the reviews. This place needs a total gut and remodel. Very old dated and DIRTY feeling. Long drive late and I just didn't want to push it. Never again. Very deceiving the lobby looks ok but after even walking through the hallway doors it was old dingy and just gross feeling. The room looked ok at first bathroom had newer looking vanity. But tub old plastic dingy bad calk job and old 80's fixtures. Breakfast was bland and picked over. Normal every day cereal over cooked steam pan eggs and hard biscuits.

"How quickly things change (and not for the better)"

07/07/2016

When we arrived at the hotel, the main entrance was taped off and signs were posted to use the side entrance. As we made our way to the side entrance, we had to walk past employees smoking outside the side entrance. Check in was quick, but instead of charging the card we checked in with, they charged the card that we held the room with and at check out, were unable to o anything about it. The room was as expected. Not spotless, but acceptable. Breakfast was pretty good besides only being offered from 630-930 causing it to be extremely crowded and items not stocked quick enough. The staff did their job, but they had this attitude as if they were either burned out from the holiday, or just not happy at the hotel. An agent "Deseray" explained her frustrations about management never being around without me asking. At check out, we learned of the mistake on the bill and were told sorry but there was nothing anyone could do as no management was there for the weekend. I have tried contacting the GM "Patricia" with 3 voice mails in 4 days and have not heard anything. I stayed at this property last year and it was great The age of the property is showing and combined with a "C" squad of employees, I will spend the extra money to stay somewhere else.

The folks at this hotel knew how to do things right. They were very friendly and would go the extra distance to assist you without complaint.

They serve complimentary breakfast to their guests and are always accommodating.

"Unsatisfactory Stay at Best Western"

2
01/06/2016

I was overcharged, which caused a $35 fee to my account. The hotel acknowledged that it was their fault, but refused to compensate me for the $35. Apparently, there was a notation in the fine print of the hotel contract. They finally fixed the overage, but added an additional hold on my account. I'm still trying to get that rectified! The hotel is old and our room had stains on one of the headboards. Other than that, it was pretty clean. I didn't like the old spanish style of the common areas and the room. I felt like I was in an older part of Mexico. The breakfast was ok, not as good as in most hotels. On the plus side, the service staff were exceptional. Deseray should be promoted or at least given a raise. She provided stellar service, as did most of the other service staff! But, in spite of the the wonderful staff, I will not stay at this hotel again because of the other issues.

"Safe Pool "

28/05/2016

I liked the pool area. It had barriers across to keep youngsters safely in an area with their moms and dads, whilst other older swimmers could swim and splash about freely and there was an outside area accessible by a little "tunnel" from the inside pool. The bartender was friendly and accommodating as we were able to order a bowl of soup and a starter. The chowder was great. Room and everywhere else in the hotel was clean.

"I WAS CHARGED A 500.00 CLEAN UP FEE!!!"

26/05/2016

Hello myself and my friends kids stayed over night one night in two rooms. I was charged a 500 dollar cleaning fee and nobody warned me about it. The floor was commercial carpeting and it was not bad at all. I decided to call hotel after I saw it on my account and they said there was a cake stain on floor and on linen. I calmed down called back later and talked to front desk she said I was charged 400.00 for carpet cleaning and 100.00 for linen. Are you kidding me? I asked for her to leave message for general manager to send me bills,pictures, and reciepts so I can show it to a attorney. I also called corporate and will call the better business bureau if it doesn't get resolved. I expected more from Best Western I have stayed at many Best Westerns in the past. I am still waiting to hear from company.

24/05/2016

Hotel seemed nice enough, but was very dated. My room had a musty smell that was seemed to be covered up by using a LOT of air freshener or crept fresh....so much so that I had a headache after sleeping there. Staff were friendly, but there is a newer Hampton Inn in town that isn't far from this Best Western. Also chose this hotel thinking it would be a nice place on the lake, but there isn't even a lake view from this hotel.

02/05/2016

This is an old Holiday Inn that has been restored sometime in the past. However, it now needs to be re-restored. Things are way out of date. Especially for the price that the hotel charges. The service is excellent, but the décor is worn. Lighting needs attention in the rooms along with the bath tub water knobs being hard to turn and know which way is colder and hotter.

"Rest and Relax"

25/04/2016

My less than perfect rating delt with the condition of the building Several holes in the façade of the walls, wire ties seen, Holes chucked out as if speakers or something should have been in them.. This needs updated in the worst way. The room was clean and the bed was a little dated but comfortable. The desk person was awesome and very helpful at check in. The only problem at check in was the matter of the cost of the rooms, Online the cost of the room was $99.00 as was the Hampton inn, I chose Best Western because I am a rewards member as well as have AAA ARP , which I told the girl but when I asked the cost with my discount she Quoted $125.00. We then told her and she price matched the 99.00 a little disappointing as my friends that were with us wanted to go to the Hampton where they said that they always got a discount over the list price online. We were there and booked both rooms anyway. I can see this would be a wonderful place to stay if you have children. The breakfast setup was poorly organized, food was dry and not as abundant as we were accustomed to. They had no bacon, no gravy, no individual cereal and no Danish. Did enjoy the plentiful seating and the booths. A pool was available as was indoor games. These we did not use. Overall stay was ok.

18/04/2016

This hotel was old. It was decent for the price and the bed slept really well, however, the restaurant was not good at all. The dinner service was horrible and the breakfast was not good. The breakfast selection was poor. And, the waffle maker should be located in another area. This slowed down the line for others who were not making a waffle.

The staff was courteous, professional and attentive. The room was fine and the pool and hot tube were most welcome. The wifi worked well. The breakfast buffet was lackluster. I was really looking forward to the cobb salad for dinner in the evening, but it was a little bit disappointing, the chicken was dry and the dressing was not the best but the service was splendid and the desserts were to die for. We will definitely be coming back.

"Housekeeping needs a review"

13/03/2016

This was my second experience in staying in this hotel. My first trip there was about 18 months ago. Not much has changed since then. Having driven for a number of hours my first stop was the ladies room behind the Lobby Desk. The floor was dirty, not littered, but dirty and in the corner there was a lot of dirt with cobwebs growing over it, so obviously the floor had not been wiped down that day. We progressed to our room. The furnishing are nice but when we opened the door, there was an odor. Not pleasant. Later determined it was originating in the bathroom, Apparently it had been some time since the floor had been cleaned thoroughly or disinfected around the stool and the odor was coming from that area and the floor was a little "sticky". Also in the morning we had very cool water. Even though it ran for a long time a "hot" shower was out of the question. I heard a couple of others complaining about this also. Otherwise the hotel was "average." some of the chairs on the second floor poolside were still in poor condition - too many too large folks had used them for too long. The hallway was quiet during the night. I judge the quality of the hotel by the cost of the room versus my expectations for that cost. It certainly is not a 5 star hotel and I am not judging it as such. For the cost (average) it is a good hotel, the housekeeping needs to be improved especially in the common areas and the bathrooms.

The Best Western Plus La Porte Hotel and Conference Center is such a wonderful place to stay in at, the rooms here are just so awesome, comfortable and relaxing. The staff working here are all indeed very friendly and always welcoming you with a warm smile.

We have chosen Best Western LaPorte for 5 years for a Viet Nam Reunion and Lion Convention. The hotel is clean and the food is to die for. Great job! They have hired more staff to meet our needs which we so appreciated!

This hotel is so very cute! The decor is one of a kind. The staff are friendly, attentive, and welcoming. There is a pool and hot tub in good condition, a workout room, a restaurant and bar, coffee in the lobby, pets welcome. It is located along the main strip, coming into Laporte. Rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. We got a room with a sliding door to the Center atrium, and it was great to watch the rest of the people in the hotel come and go.

I do not know how this hotel does it and puts up with all the organized chaos we bring to this place twice a year now... Bravo. We love this hotel and its developing, creative use of the place as a whole to have 3 band stages and 24 hours of hippies constantly running around. From decorating the Atrium with banners, constant music everywhere 24/7, the Potluck Saturday night dinner tradition and fire alarms... (which was reduced to only one this year, on an early Friday before the event started.) We are now not rookies and eveybody had a good time and blissful experience. Despite small hangups of my room leaking water on my bed from 61 degrees in February two days in a row - I booked the SAME ROOM for next year. Love it. Thank you. - Joe A.

Never done one of these but it is linked with my email. We arrived and the girl was so nice and got us taken care of quickly. Got us a room on first floor close to the front so we wouldn't have to walk far. Room was cold upon entering and it took awhile to heat up but that's my only complaint. Room was comfortable and clean. The whole hotel was pleasant and all the staff members were very sweet. Overall it was a very nice stay and we will stay at that hotel again.

05/02/2016

It was a very strange experience. Many room had multiple people staying in one room. It seems very shady at night and exterior entry doors were normally unlocked. The free breakfast was just average and the hotel seemed very outdated. A little more security and less noise could go a long way in this hotel.

"Not sure we'd stay again"

05/02/2016

The room only had one mirror with an outlet near it (was in the very small bathroom) - made it difficult for 3 people to get ready in the morning. The in-room refrigerator froze everything. The internet was very slow. The rooms appeared dingy and outdated. The staff was very courteous and helpful.

Service is fantastic, and the facility is clean and well run. From the moment of check-in to the time of check-out, the experience was excellent. The management of this hotel is to be congratulated. I travel for business almost weekly, so I believe I have a perspective on accommodations.

The staff here is very rude. They are not concerned with the feelings or needs of their guests. Over priced for the overall quality of the hotel. Pool and hottub always swarming with young children. The rooms are very run down and bland. Not a very homey or comfortable place.

WONDERFULLaPorte, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS La Porte Hotel & Conference Center, responded to this review
Thank you for the review and for the previous survey you also filled out about the same items. As previously stated we have to enforce our 21+ years of age policy for guest room rentals. As for Pool usage; all guests are welcome to use the pool from 10am-10pm, so at times it will be quite busy with other guests and their children using the pool also. I apologize it was busy on the weekend that you stayed with us. We hope that you will return in the future. Crystal H. Assistant GM

"Short but good stay"

23/01/2016

everything was good with our stay. the room was comfortable clean and the décor of the hotel was cool. they have a debit card hold policy that holds funds on your card even after you check out for a few days so that would be a downside. Plan for having extra money on your card

WONDERFULLaPorte, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS La Porte Hotel & Conference Center, responded to this review
I am very glad that you enjoyed your stay! Regarding our debit card policy: We only place an additional amount of $30.00 for an incidental hold on your card in addition to your room and tax. If no incidental charges occur, we release the hold the day you check out. From that point some banking institutions may take up to 5-7 business days to release the funds to your account. I understand the inconvenience that this can cause and we apologize. We always notify guests ahead of time so that they are aware of the hold placed on their card at least. We hope that you will stay with us again in the future! Have a wonderful day! Crystal H Assistant GM

We stayed for a wedding that was at the Allure. Hotel was very close to venue. Staff members helped set up cab transportation. Everytime we called to set up everything or when we had questions their communications was great. Rooms were perfect. Fridges in rooms were very convenient. Rooms seemed larger than most standard hotels. There were many open guest areas to sit and congregate. We enjoyed everything. Everyone was so nice but 3 staff members who went above and beyond for us were Karen, Patricia, & Crystal. Ask for them for awesome service!

WONDERFULLaPorte, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS La Porte Hotel & Conference Center, responded to this review
Thank you so much for choosing our location for your wedding group to attend. We enjoyed being a part of you and your family's special weekend.

We stayed at the hotel in laporte with a wedding group. Everythng went smooth and check in was quick. We enjoyed the bar after the wedding also. Our room was really cute and the décor of the entire hotel was pretty cool. Most of our family and friends stayed at the same hotel. Everyone seemed to enjoy everything. All the people who worked there were very nice. We would stay again.

I enjoyed the stay,however I feel the motel is old and outdated. It needs work. Even if it had some cosmetic improvements it would have been rated better. I don't know if i would recommend the motel to a friend. If they were just passing through for 1 nite. Anything more than 1 night.......no.

Power outage due to a winter storm sent us to this hotel overnight, which is less than 10 miles from home. Had to take our 2 kittens with, Pinky and Stitch, and the hotel could not have been more accommodating. Lots of other folks with their pets too. And the price was a real value. Made an inconvenient situation much more tolerable.

This hotel has a pool and fun mini golf area. The hotel was clean. The only thing that I didn't like about the hotel was that there were no clean towels in the gym or pool area. The hotel was also understaffed but it was during Christmas so that could be why.

We get together almost every year around Christmas at the laporte best western. It use to be something else years back but is so much better now. They have upgraded a lot of stuff. our rooms are always clean and have many items that are useful. we always choose the dome side area rooms on first floor for the convenience of our family get together. Everyone there is always so nice and they have many staff members that have been there for many years. It is always nice to see them and they are just as nice as ever.

What can I say about my stay on the night of December 28, 2015? Fire alarms going off, leaking ceilings from the extreme amount of rain. At every turn, the staff was polite and calming and treated every issues with the respect and care it needed. The hotel does need some minor repairs, but is very spacious and inviting. The room was clean and comfortable. The chair and ottoman are a nice touch to help with being away from home. The conference room we used for out meeting was well above average and set up with all the appropriate necessities.

23/12/2015

There are not a lot of hotels to choose from in La Porte, Indiana. The secretary chose Best Western because of the reputation and quality our company has become accustomed to. This particular Best Western seemed like it was some other hotel chain's that Best Western purchased. It is old and run down, very outdated and smelled. Had I know the condition of this location, I would have stayed farther away from my job site and driven in the next morning.

21/12/2015

The staff was nice, but that's about where it ended. Once we got to the room there was hair on the faucet, the water took minutes to get warm, and the room itself was in the 50s until we turned on the heater. It also became quickly obvious that there was some kind of track meet happening right outside our 4th floor room. From the time we arrived, around 6:00 PM, until midnight there was running and cheering outside our door. It did not make for a relaxing environment. After quiet finally began, we started to drift off to sleep, but then the bar downstairs closed their doors and the party moved to our floor. I was finally able to fall asleep around 4:00 AM, but the track meet seemed to have begun again at 7:00 AM. We left tired, cranky, and sore. Not a good experience.

From the moment you step foot in the building you are treated like a friend or family. Each staff member I encountered was so kind and helpful and went out of their way to make things extra special. We appreciated it immensely. Hotel is older but well maintained. Our room was very comfortable and had pretty much everything we needed. I liked the features such as the remote control for the TV that was a "clean remote'" (it was flat surfaced to clean better and easier. It's the first time I've seen one) and it had an easy how to for connecting to their wifi system. The restaurant that is in the hotel actually has really great food unlike other in hotel restaurants that I have tried before. They have a well rounded enjoyable hotel and we will definitely stay again. Another thank you to the wonderful staff for making it perfect.

There is plenty to keep busy on site as well such as shuffle board, putting greens, pool table and arcade games, swimming pool, hot tub, also a work out room. If you want place where they roll out the red carpet, I recommend you choose this one.

They told us the windows opened and when we arrived they didn't and we had a non refundable booking. After calling Orbitz to try and facilitate a refund the girl at the front desk at the hotel was as unhelpful as possible in making that happen. We had no choice but to dispute the charge. I would never go back to this property again. The rooms look tired, old and uncomfortable and I'm glad we ended up leaving.

I would not recommend this hotel be advertised as it is. This hotel is old and run down. She needs to be put out of its misery. It's time someone puts money into this property and make modern renovations. or excavate and start all over. This use to be a grand hotel 30 years ago and with the lack of upkeep and moving times, it is time for someone to step up to the plate and modernize. Beds are old and uncomfortable; carpets are old and smell as if years of build up dirt and stench have fallen on them; our refrigerator worked if you wanted to make ice cubes; Even after turning it off it stayed on. The only way to shut it off was to unplug it. Falling plaster in the pool area. decor outdated...Not enough room to keep going. Hampton just down the road that is newer; maybe try them next time.

Couldn't face another 3 hrs of driving, so we used Tripadvisor to track down a pet-friendly hotel near us The La Porte BW+ suited us just fine. Scenic area / we took a drive around and enjoyed the nearby lake. Off season so the hotel was quiet. Played some indoor shuffle board. Ate at Rother's (food from Timbers) while we watched baseball. Service was good. Room was very comfortable. Ground floor room made it easy to take the dog out.

This Best Western is well-located, with easy access to route I-80. The staff was friendly, helpful, & accommodating. We arrived early, & they allowed us to check in, because our room was ready. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, & the breakfasts were delicious. Their restaurant,'Timbers', served great food, & we were able to watch the MLB playoffs. If I have a small complaint, it's that they don't serve "All-Day Coffee" in the lobby [like the Hampton Inn]. I was happy enough with this Best Western that I booked an extra night there, due to unforeseen circumstances.

They offered special business rates but had a fantastic hotel. All staff were phenonminal. They were helpful and welcoming. Beds were clean, fresh, comfortable.

We will definitely use this place again when we come back to laporte.

The restaurant and pub inside the hotel have great options. It's nice to not have to go anywhere when I get back. The beds are comfortable. But if you don't want your beds made or sheets changed just let them know. I usually put a do not disturn sign up and the will get you things if you need them. They are usually pretty quick to get you items when you need them. The front desk staff are always very smiley and welcoming when I get back every day. It is nice to feel at home. I would recommend since they have a little bit of everything.

"Noisy place to stay"

28/09/2015

Noisy, noisy, noisy. Close to dump status. Your credit card is always overcharged for the room when you check-in. They say they will refund the difference in a couple of days. Guess they expect you to steal a lot of towels. Never stay in a room that borders the atrium. Always noisy. Other rooms lack sound insulation and you can hear every step and voice in the hallways. I am going to look elsewhere next time.

We would have guessed a 4/5 but when we walked into the lobby, we were impressed. Front areas are quite nice, and there is an indoor courtyard area with interesting adobe architecture. Accessing the room was a little confusing, but we were pleased once we found it. The tv had high quality HD. Good night's sleep. Perfect distance away from South Bend for a visit to Notre Dame without spending the higher prices in town.

"Just Fine"

24/09/2015

During my cross country trip, I decided to treat myself to one upgraded hotel and the Best Western Plus LaPorte was a good choice. It's right off Pine Lake (no views from ground floor) and within easy walking distance. The hotel is dog friendly -- and the rooms are clean and comfortable. The hotel is entirely non smoking; however, it seems that the smoke alarm that woke everyone at 3:30 am was set off by a guest who decided to smoke in their room. The staff was friendly and competent -- but I would have expected at least a verbal apology when checking out, for a disturbed night's sleep -- that didn't occur.
