Stayed here one night. Room was spacious with both microwave and refrigerator. Tv remote did not function upon arrival. After new batteries from front desk it worked. Heater seemed to run almost constantly but got used to the noise. Pool was nice. Large too. Breakfast was spare with sweet rolls, breads, yogurt and cold cereal mainly. Nothing hot other than...

We stayed in a room with two queen beds as a family (two parents and three small children) for a night. The first impression that the hotel made was being once quite respectable, but now being rather down on its luck. It really needs a bit of TLC from the management. Little things, like a cheap printer being used a... More

After pulling in and out of a few other motels in the area at 4 am on Nov 25 we finally found the Waterford. Hallelujah! We were tired and had our dogs. Yes, there was a $15 pet fee/dog and even though my dogs are neat and clean, I do understand the reason for this. There was a fenced courtyard... More

We were looking for a place to stay in South Bend & found this place on Expedia. Made our reservations and when we got there, was able to get a handicapped room. The room must have been a special room as it had pictures of some great coaches of Notre Dame. The room was adequate for our needs & will... More

Aging common spaces, but the rooms are clean and largely updated, with new furnishings, flat panel televisions, fridge and microwave, and a small desk. The staff seemed friendly. My room was a standard, queen size room; the window opened to a hallway lined with windows overlooking the outdoor pool. Even with every light on, they are somewhat dark. Watch out... More

Picked up our keys to our room and drove to the specified entrance only to find out that the card wouldn't open the door. Pulled our luggage to the next entrance and were happy to get inside. Made it up to our room which was about 90 degrees. The air conditioner was broken. Requested to move rooms and ended up... More

Upon arrival to the hotel I was, to say the least, disappointed in my online choice for the night. The building is an odd collection of buildings and the exterior needs updating desperately. However, the lobby was perfectly suitable and the front desk experience was outstanding on check in and check out. When going to our room, we again had... More

Stayed there last nite and it was great for the price. The pool and hot tub were one of the best we have seen. Very clean. The place was old but well kept. Breakfast was fine. We were very satisfied. Would go there again.

I've read some of the good reviews and wonder if they stayed in a different hotel... first off let me say that the staff is wonderful and amazing. Amazing in that I don't see how someone could remain positive at such a run down establishment. The entry is nice, but aside from a few TVs and air-conditioning units this hotel... More

As I eat my home made peach muffin (breakfast included), and after a great night's sleep, I can't say enough. Room clean, well appointed, and quiet. Good shower. Good coffee!!! And the price was under $70. I've spent twice as much for much less. Hallway carpeting old, but I'm not sleeping in the hall. This is a find. Try it....you'll... More
