Location offers easy access to freeway and is immediately north of the Notre Dame campus. We were on a long trip with time for overnight. So the location enabled us to visit the campus and enjoy the new shops and Irish dining next to campus. The room and services were much as you expect from Holiday Inn Express.

The hotel is convenient to Notre Dame but it is a noisy hotel. It is not cheap. But I can here the conversation the people in the room next to me are having. I hear every sneeze and cough. The breakfast is pretty nice.

My husband and I stayed here last night. We were upgraded to a roomy and comfortable king suite. The staff was very friendly. The breakfast was standard Holiday Inn Express fare but the area was clean and items were constantly replenished. It's right across the street from a great German restaurant. Too bad they were closed on Tuesdays. Better luck... More

Traveling across country with friends and we needed a comfortable place to stay the night. We definitely found it. Our room was clean, well appointed and quiet. The beds were very comfortable and had 4 pillows each, labeled "firm" & "soft". There is a decent breakfast included with your stay and the woman attending to it was friendly & helpful.... More

We stayed here on the Sunday that the US Women's Soccer Team won the Championship. The hotel is on the northern border of South Bend but is only a 5 minute drive from Notre Dame. It is in an interesting neighbourhood of pubs, sports souvenir shops, pizzerias and so on. Amber greeted us at the front desk and was a... More

We stayed one night in July so definitely not prime football season. We found it to be quiet and clean. Not a complaint for us but an observation...the breakfast area was extremely small. I can't imagine during peak season there would be any space in that area.

The hotel was going through a renovation and though I thought the room was very clean and did not notice anything dated or worn. Bath, TV, towels were what you would expect. Very nice and clean. The carpet and interior of the lobby was best described as "Brady Bunch", though other than dated, was clean and safe. Staff was courteous... More

We were desperate for a good sleep, and thanks to the very loud fan that blocked out the neighbor's loud children, we got it. Breakfast was average. Unremarkable hotel really, but did its job. The staff at the front desk held moderately inappropriate conversations discernible to guests.
