Recently stayed at the Residence Inn - Merrillville. At check in I was upgraded to a 2 bedroom room. The hotel was clean and overall in good condition. It came stocked with basic kitchen items and had 3 TV's. The room was clean and very well maintained. It can be hard to find this hotel at night. There is just a small sign telling you where to turn.
There was a small stain on the carpet on the guest room and the Ice Maker did not work.
The Hotel offered a free breakfast in the morning.
There was also a pool available:
