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

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

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
