When visiting Michigan City, Dunes Inn Michigan City Hotel is a great choice to consider. Guests will have free perks like WiFi and self parking.
This hotel should be condemnedPros: No bed bugs, somehow. My car didn't get broken into, somehow. Cons: I had to wait for them to be ready to check me in, so check in was 2 hours late. They messed up my reservation, right days but wrong month. There were no sheets on my bed when I got to my room. The shower hadn't been cleaned for at least 6 months before I got there. The carpet hadn't been vacuumed in at least a month. I found a knife hiding above one of the lights. I mentioned the knife to the assistant manager who started telling me it was probably left behind by one of the prostitutes who use that hotel. There are at least 4 that are friendly enough with the staff, so that the staff knows what they do. Some of the staff lives in the hotel, including the manager who was clearly very high during check out.
Scary, unsanitaryCons: Dark location, felt very unsafe. Suspicious people hanging off balcony smoking and hanging around main office. Interior smells of smoke, dirty.
Immediately felt it was unsafe to leave car in the parking lot, ran inside and immediately bolted door lock. Two steps inside the door and saw dried food on wall, smelled of smoke, dingy. Didn't take 1 minute to decide it was worth spending money to stay at a different hotel! Wouldn't even sit on furniture.
Staff at front desk kind enough to give us 100% refund for the night.
Cheep price but DumpPros: Never changed the bed sheets in 7 days. Gave me two (2) bars of new soap. One extra towel in 7 days. Room was no smoking put STUNK like cigarettes or cigars, I told then not to charge me for that. Another person walked in as I was walking out and they told them the same thing. No refrigerator in room, they had one before, could see the marks on carpet. Other person asked for room with one, but told me it did not work. carpet super dirty, if you walk on it and then go to shower black will come off you feet. Carpet never cleaned. Had to reset my key card 3 times. Ice in from a pot dispenser. Lady at desk had, I don't care if you don't like it attitude, always an excuse why things were not right. Kids running behind desk by here, tattoos all over her body. Seems like a local motel for local singles to shake up in. Many people just hanging around outside and in cars.
Dirty, unprofessionalCons: Room wasn't ready, after giving them two hours, it still didn't seem like it had been cleaned. Dirty bathroom, dirty floors and walls, cigarette stains everywhere. Also no remote control for TV. NEVER AGAIN.
