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

Just perfect rest stop enroute to Carlisle, Pa. Warm greeting on arrival. Room was clean and comfortable. Great rate. " King Gyros" next door does a great job for sandwich and soda. The TV worked just fine. The facility was quiet, the bed was good, room was warm and a good nights sleep was to be had. Up bright and... More

This motel is on a highway near Notre Dame so there are lots of nearby services. But the rooms were small, almost European sized, with several delayed maintenance problems such as sink faucet too far back, yellowed caulk around the tub, worn rugs, and others. Nothing disastrous but something to which the management should attend. The cold breakfasts were minimal... More

My husband and I stay here every time we come to South Bend for a football game, Rick is very helpful and always ask if he can do anything to help out with as far as taxi service or tickets to games. The rooms are very clean and the lobby is also which is a indication of what the rooms... More

I went here with pretty low expectations but the hotel still managed to disappoint us. Everything is pretty run-down. If you get a double room for $65 or less including taxes then probably it is ok. Breakfast was unusually poor and the coffee just bad. Sorry, can´t recommend it.

Clean rooms with a fridge and cool air-conditioner - Very nice people at front desk. My mom was with us and she is very picky and she said she slept well. We ordered pizza and it came right to our door. Also, the people at the front desk were helpful with knowing where to go to church on Sunday.
