Only blocks from the shores of Lake Michigan...

The Inn gives you full advantage of its beauty without North Shore prices. We can arrange Charter Fishing excursions or direct you to the best swimming or picnicking spots along the six miles of sandy beach, including Hosea Beach, a 22-acre maintained nature preservce with boardwalk and identified conservation areas.

As part of the historic downtown Zion business corridor, The Inn at Market Square was designed to reflect the architecture of the original 1907 Zion Hotel that was razed in 1979. That structure was the 2nd largest wooden building in the United States and stood just two blocks north of The Inn along Sheridan Road. The classic dome of the original building was preserved and the site can be visited during your stay with us.


Two blocks from the Cancer Treatments of America and all of downtown Zion's retail and restaurant options. The Bee Line Trolley provides free rides to the Farmer's Market during the summer and the hospital shuttle service arrives every 20 minutes year round. On Thursday evenings, the Zion Park District presents a free Conccert in the Park series with a range of professional perfomers from Dixieland Jazz to Classical Strings.
