We were impressed by the staff friendliness and wonderful breakfast. The staff was able to provide me with a pain reliever when I had forgotten mine. The homemade salsa was superior. :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :)

We stayed at the Ivy Court Inn & Suites back in August 2014. It was a first trip to Indiana. The front desk was very helpful! The room was clean and huge. We loved the breakfast and the yummy cookies. We went to dinner at the local Irish Pub.

Incredibly clean, impressive suite; when I couldn't sleep in the middle of the night (due to insomnia; the room was very quiet), it was nice to be able to go into the living room, close the door to the bedroom and read while not disturbing my sleeping husband. Staff were helpful in providing maps and answering questions. This hotel is... More

It's about comfort at this place: large beds, spacious rooms, refrigerators and down in the lobby, cookies, a terrific breakfast spread with about everything you could desire and helpful staff. It's not malarkey. I've stayed there four or five times on business trips to South Bend. I happened to be working on campus, but even if I weren't, the Ivy... More

I stayed at Ivy Court while my apartment was being restored after fire and could not have found more comfortable, friendly, and conveniently located (w.r.t. Notre Dame) place. Friendly staff are at desk 24 hrs. with cookies, hot and cold beverages available next to fire place; it feels like living room of your own home. Delicious hot breakfast buffet served... More

Ivy Court Inn and Suites, at the edge of the Notre Dame Campus, is a terrific place to stay when visiting the university or the community. Away from major highways, quiet, tucked in to a residential area, it has ample parking, comfortable rooms, a full breakfast, and an accommodating, cheerful staff. During football season, rooms are in high demand, of... More

Thanks to tripadvisor , we first found this hotel three years ago, when our son started Notre Dame. I am also a travel agent and in the business for over 30 years. I am very picky about where I stay. This is the only hotel I book, when we go there. We stay several times a year. Ivy Court makes... More

I've stayed at the Ivy Court numerous times. The staff is so friendly and their breakfast is great! The rooms are clean and the fresh cookies in the lobby are delicious! My room was upgraded this last visit and I was very impressed with the suite.

I have to travel to South Bend often. I ONLY stay at the Ivy Court Inn & suites. The Ivy has amazing breakfast, great rooms, and killer workout facility! Best of all, the staff! They make it a point to provide the best service from either cleaning your car if it snows to recommending close restaurants within walking distance. Also... More

If you're looking for basic accommodations, this place is fine. Our room was a good size but the door sticked badly, the bath towels are lame and the walls are paper thin. Breakfast was predictable-on par with entry level hotels.
