We stayed in building 9 on the second floor. The accommodations are nice-the bed was comfy and the unit was very spacious. However, the decor needs updating. Lighting is dark, and bathrooms were clean but dated. I'm okay with a split level unit, but loft units, unfortunately, make watching different television channels on different floors difficult. Also, the second level... More

We stayed at this hotel last Saturday and I had previously booked the room online. At the time I booked the room, I advised them that I would be traveling with my dog. At the time of check-in, I was informed by the very pleasant and helpful desk clerk, that the pet fee would be an additional $100! For one... More

Thank you for staying with us and taking time to write a review. I appreciate you bringing to my attention that the pet fee is displayed, but not prominently when booking. We are working with Marriott and 3rd party sites to create a booking message that will display there is a pet fee and the amount more prominently. More

It was a short trip to Notre Dame University. So we picked the hotel with the best location/price ratio. The hotel itself consists of several separate buildings with few rooms in each one. In general it was a nice and pleasant stay. The room was clean and spacious. If you want piece and silence in your room, you'd better ask... More

He was so loud.. it actually sounded like he was rearranging his place. . That's how ridiculous it was. Or he was lifting weights and dropping... More

room was very comfortable. Could use one more TV near the bed area but overall an excellent stay. Will be staying here whenever I'm in town. the entire complex was well laid out and you felt like you had some privacy and it was nice and quiet throughout the entire evening. Breakfast was good in the morning with a great... More

We took our children up to Notre Dame for a college tour and stayed at the Residence Inn. The staff were amazing. We were greeted at the front desk by Chris and Cassie. They were so welcoming and accommodating. The Penthouse Suite was perfect for our family including two teenagers and enjoyed the full kitchen and fireplace. The breakfast in... More

We stayed there for almost 7 months. It was a home for us. The staff is more than the staff and they become a family to you. Our room was very nice, clean and very peaceful. And there was absolutely great room service throughout our stay. Everyday there is breakfast at the lobby and its very good quality. the girls... More

In the fall, my husband and I go to quite a few of the "Fighting Irish" football games, and has stayed at this hotel a couple of times now. It is not a five star hotel, but we enjoy the convenience of being in relatively 'close' proximity to Notre Dame's Stadium. We enjoyed their open buffet hot breakfast. The bed... More

Stayed here on after a football game. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. They really treat everyone they should be treated. The Penthouse suite was nice, but not as nice as I was anticipating. It is very spacious though!

I have no complaints about this hotel. My room was clean, the staff was very friendly, and I had zero issues. The rooms are a little dated (e.g., green carpet), but the location is fantastic--walking distance to Cody's bar (made famous in "Rudy") and within minutes of downtown and Notre Dame. Overall though, just an average place to stay.
