I visited South Bend this past week and stayed at the Holiday Inn Express just off Notre Dames campus. I am a member of their reward program and always stay at this brand when traveling. I have always found them to be a great value with clean rooms and top notch service, this was not the case this time. First,... More

My family and I visted our son attending college and enjoyed our stay very much! The room was clean and the breakfast was free! It included scrambled eggs, muffins, yogurt, bagels, coffee and the like. We will definitely stay here again!

This was my first stay at this location and it was not too good. On average I stay 8-10 nights per month at Holiday Inn Express hotels and this location fell well below expectations. Check in was very slow and while I will not blame hotel personnel for slow computers, they seemed to be quite unorganized. When I checked in... More

The interior of the hotel (lobby and hallways) is nice. Stayed in room 207 which was right off the elevator, but it was pretty quiet. It was a little more beat up and they hadn't fully cleaned the room. When I called, they quickly came to the room to take care of it. The room was spacious (we had a... More

Although overall this hotel is very nice on the inside and pretty uniform to all holiday inn express hotels, it is not located in the safest of areas in South Bend. During our stay my father's car and my fiancé's car were broken into, along with seven other guests over night. The windows were smashed and valuables were stolen out... More

Very Clean and comfortable room. Excellent service and the queen double room was very spacious. In-room desk / work center enabled a good working enviornment.

My sons team had the experience of staying at this overpriced hotel for 2 nights. The lobby was clean and initially the staff was welcoming. From there it was all down hill. The staff apparently had never hosted a team before because the male employee was extremely rude to all of us our entire stay. It seemed that he enjoyed... More

Dear Guest, I am sorry your experience at the hotel was less than exceptional. The hotel is staffed with some unseasoned desk clerks. Unfortunately your team came in on a Notre Dame event weekend, along with the hockey and also Valentines. That can sometimes host a variety of issues. We do our best to assure everyone has a good time,... More

Everything about our stay here was excellent, starting with the check-in which was the fastest I've ever experienced. The lobby and hallways were clean, the room and bathroom were very clean. We were pleasantly surprised with the size of the room (queen double); it was much more spacious than the average room. It was a corner room, so that may... More

This is not a standard H I express. It has a restaurant, bar, and located on the Notre Dame campus. It is very clean, warm, and quiet. Good coffee in the room and comfy bed. Good tv, bathroom amenities, and fresh coffee downstairs 24/7. Prices moderate and a good value. I would stay here again

We stayed for one night during our holidays. This place is definitely a cut above other turnpike hotels in the area. I especially appreciated the friendly staff and working gym. No restaurant, but there are a lot of good places nearby.
