When other hotels in the area QUADRUPLED their prices for ND graduation, this hotel only doubled the price, and we had a clean and comfortable room 5 minutes from campus! We stayed in a king room on the first floor. Breakfast is basic--make your own waffle, a little danish, 3-4 cereals, yogurt, juice, toast or a bagel. Staff was friendly... More

We stayed here just before Christmas as a halfway stop on our trip from MN to NY, having made an online reservation just a couple of days prior at a surprisingly low rate. The accommodations were basic, clean, and comfortable; all that's necessary for an overnight stop. The property seemed quite well maintained for a budget friendly hotel. I have... More

Besides the stained furniture in the room, it is by no means a deal much less the best. The free breakfast consisted of stall danish and a waffle batter from a messy looking decanter. And putting a do not disturb sign on the door doesn't stop the staff from entering your room. I had a feeling this was happening so... More

Dear Ms. Judith, Thank you for your feedback. I am truly sorry for the issues that you encountered during your stay with us. Our Lodging is Non-smoking and It is a Indiana State Law. You were smoking in our room and we had to check your room before we informed you in a polite way. Thanks. Sincerely, Rick More

We were looking for a one night stay in South Bend on our roadtrip and we came across this little gem. The Manager / owner Rick was very welcoming upon check in and even offered us a discount! Because its situated a little back off the road and between two taller buildings its easy to miss. All the rooms are... More

This hotel is a great value. You can expect clean and tidy rooms, and quick breakfast options. Best yet, the manager is the Owner. He is gracious and welcoming ensuring all of your needs are met and your stay is pleasant.

I assume most of this hotel's bookings come from online means by those that haven't seen it first. It was disappointing as we pulled in. It was the simple things, weeds growing up in the parking lot and landscaping. Dirty windows. These are simple, easily-fixed things that ruin the hotel's first impression on its guests. Refrigerator was broken in our... More

This was my second trip through South Bend, and my second stay at Rick Patel’s Americas Best Value Inn. The rooms are clean, comfortable, quiet and value priced. The breakfast includes cold cereal, fresh waffles, baked goods, fruit, the usual. Convenient location. I enjoy conversing with the owner. He and his wife understand customer service and knock themselves out to... More

I needed a place to stay for three nights in a row. Chose this location for the price and proximity to campus. Well that old adage you get what you pay for is not a cliche. The owner was weird and peeked around at the guests eating breakfast as if to say "Don't take another roll." The coffee was weaker... More
