I stayed here a few weeks ago while visiting family between business visits. We had one of the suites, and it was extremely comfortable with two tvs, a sitting room , and a fridge. The hotel is right next to ND, so I imagine it's an ideal place to stay for football games. The free breakfast was also a welcome... More

We spent a long day touring in Michigan only to find no room availability, so we headed to South Bend. We lucked into the last room at this boutique hotel adjacent to Notre Dame University, and felt lucky instead of desperate. The building looks like a large New England clapboard house, parking is close, the rooms are large, the décor... More

We had been in and out of hotels for a week with our travels, and Ivy Court was absolutely one of our favorites. There were 2 TV's in the... More

Warm cookies and great coffee. Was able to leave my 14 year old son safely in lobby until lacrosse coach picked him up. Rooms are large and comfortable. Will definitely stay again next year. They were kind and called.me by name every time I came back to hotel. The location was ideal as well.

I wasnt sure what to expect when I booked this room but was very pleased. It was a nice location, next to the campus, the hotel was clean and the rooms had a lot of personality. We went during a time when they were doing renovations. This made some areas look like a work in progress. However the breakfast was... More

The homemade cookies in the lobby were a nice touch and delicious as well. :) We enjoyed the hot breakfast as well. All the staff was very friendly and helpful.... More

Having grown up in South Bend & traveled through the city many times since, I find the Ivy Court to be perfect for my needs. It's located on the edge of Notre Dame's campus, allows easy access to downtown, & is neither too close to nor too far from major highways. The staff is first-rate, the rooms comfortable, the breakfast... More

I booked this inn on the Internet because it was a mile from a relative's house and it sounded like a nice place. We try to support independent businesses as much as possible. I decided to book the suite for no other reason than to treat myself, and it was a good choice. I had a nice living space to... More

Whether you’re looking for a stylish, boutique-style hotel or relaxing overnight accommodations next to the University of Notre Dame, you’re inn luck. The newly renovated Ivy Court Inn and Suites is located directly across the street from the University of Notre Dame’s campus and unbeatably close to the heart of the city of South Bend. We want to help make your stay happy, convenient, and comfortable when visiting the Notre Dame/South Bend area. At Ivy Court, we’re pleased to offer a unique experience with various room plans from which to choose, gathering spaces complete with an exercise room, and a hot breakfast buffet with made-to-order eggs and make-your-own waffles. We offer unbeatable amenities and are located in close proximity to many South Bend attractions, world-class universities, healthcare institutions, corporate businesses, and Indiana’s first two-site, state-certified technology park. We are a convenient and charming drive from local Amish Country, nearby casinos, outlet mall shopping, the exciting and diverse “Windy City” of Chicago, and the city of Indianapolis. Just take a look around and you’ll enjoy views like no other: the famed Golden Dome, The House That Rockne Built—Notre Dame Football Stadium, Basilica, and, of course, Touchdown Jesus. We’re proud of our standing as a Better Business Bureau-certified hotel. And, our hotel exterior isn’t the only green thing around – we have a green mission, too, and we follow and cultivate environmentally friendly practices every day at our hotel.
