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

Dear No Security, I thank you for giving your feedback on TripAdvisor regarding Holiday Inn Express South Bend / Notre Dame . It's unfortunate and very frustrating there were some very destructive boys on the lose during the Notre Dame move out weekend. I understand having your vehicle broken into is a very unsettling feeling. This vandalism is not typical... 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. In-room refrigerator and microwave is a plus. Hotel location is very close to Notre Dame University and the South Bend Airport. Had a early flight the next morning so I wanted to stay close to...

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.

While the price was kind of steep, the hotel location was great. Additionally, it was very clean, and the staff (all areas) were kind and helpful. The manager, Donna, was excellent, as she was friendly and outgoing. We were even welcomed to relax in the breakfast area for a while in the evening, instead of being forced to our rooms.... More

Rooms are pretty good, staff is friendly and helpful. Given the neighborhood and surroundings the hotel is a bit overpriced. Breakfast is included but really poor. Expected a bit more for the money we paid. Overall an acceptable experience without any excitements.

We stayed there because we thought it would be a safe place. I left my ipad on the desk. I called the manager but it was already gone. The manager did nothing. I would not stay there with valuables. Our vacation became about changing passwords and securing accounts.
