Here are a couple hotel options for anyone that might want them:
Mayflower Motel-on State Road 2, one mile west of downtown LaPorte across from the County Fairgrounds. Phone 362-2092. I just dropped by there and they have 7 rooms open. 1-2 people, $49 plus tax=$56. This is an older type motel but it looks like it would fine. It is right on the edge of town and very close to the road that goes up to the lakes.
Best Western $89 plus tax=$99.68 http://book.bestwestern.com/bestwestern ... Code=15100
This place is very close to Fay's Marina and the lakes. This is a newer motel.
