Looking for an overnight stay during your fishing trip?  INCCA has arranged special deals at hotels convenient to the marinas close to where we are located. Feel free to contact any of the following to set up reservations. 


Ramada Inn at 4141 S. Calumet Avenue
Hammond, IN 46320 

This is the most convenient hotel for fishermen heading for Hammond Marina. It's located about 3miles south of the Hammond Marina, just south of I-90 (Indiana Toll Rd.) X U.S. 41 (Calumet Avenue). 

This hotel has all the usual amenities including on-site dining and in-house bar. There's an outdoor pool. 

I would not suggest this hotel for groups planning to fish at East Chicago, Portage or Michigan City unless side trips to Chicago are planned. This is the closest Indiana hotel to Downtown Chicago.

SUPER 8 - Merrillville 
8300 Louisiana St.
Merrillville, IN, 46410 US

Lodging close to the marina or casinos offers certain conveniences, but little in the way of other attractions.  Merrillville, Indiana at the crossroads of I-65 and U.S. 30 is the heart of northwest Indiana's shopping, dining and movie theater district. Westfield Mall is there with both a Gander Mountain and Dick's Sporting Goods store.  There's a Super Walmart, Sam's Club, two multiplex theaters and more restaurants that you can count.  Drive time to either the Hammond, East Chicgo or Portage Marina is less than 20 minutes.
