We stayed here for two nights. Both mornings had the same breakfast, but it was very good. They had several types of eggs, hashbrowns, bacon, sausage, biscuits and gravy, cereals, fruit, yogurt and breads. The staff worked really hard to keep it all available. They had real plates and silverware too! The desk staff was very friendly and helpful. If... More

I should have taken the sign on the door of the lobby more seriously "Excuse our mess while we renovate". Stopped up toilet, boarded over work in hallway, construction work - screwing in drywall? - started at 8am on Sunday morning. Plus we could hear every door shut and footstep taken. Since we were near the entrance to the building,... More

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

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

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. We invite you to look around and get comfortable. You’ll soon see why Ivy Court Inn & Suites is the choice for accommodations in South Bend. We look forward to welcoming you soon. ... more   less
