Waterbird Lakeside Inn, Chesterton
Beautiful room and view, friendly staff.

Very Good8.0
Nice enough, and excellent location.
Waterbird Inn was a very nice place. Nice, clean, comfortably large room with excellent view. The bed and bedding could have been in better condition, but it was very clean and well kept. I wasn't real happy with an upstairs room because of some difficulty I have with my leg and hip, but the gentleman at the desk did carry my luggage upstairs for me. I only found ice on the ground floor so that was a little inconvenient. The location is very good.

Friendly staff, but everything else was a mess
This hotel is over priced, unclean, and very outdated. Wifi was spotty at best. The staff was very kind and professional, but it's clear the owners have not invested in keeping the building and grounds up to date or clean. I even found nails in the parking area and, it is covered with cigarettebutts and other trash. The locations is directly behind a stripmall. The only reason we stayed is because they accept pets.

No issues
This is a great value for the price. Clean and comfortable.

Spacious room with balcony overlooking the lake. Great for my morning meditation time. All restaurants were within 500 to 1000 feet. Even though it was winter and snowing the view overlooking the frozen lake was still awesome while it snowed. Would have been nice if they would serve at least a continental breakfast of bagel and cream cheese, cereal or something of that nature.
