2 Queen beds; room was clean and quite large, with a kitchenette. The bathroom was very clean and the shower had very good water pressure (low water pressure is a pet peeve of mine). Separate sink/vanity is adjacent. AC unit does make quite a racket, though - knocked sleep quality rating down due to that. Nice bar/ restaurant with GREAT... More

Nothing amazingly fancy but has all the amenities that you could look for. Nice bar/ restaurant with great staff service. It's all you can ask for at a nice price. Located close to Notre Dame provides added convenience.

Front desk staff was very pleasant. Now for the bad -No elevator anywhere in the hotel.The room could have been considered nice except the bed... More

We stayed here for JPW and could not have been more disappointed! The carpet had blood stains, the bathroom floor and bottom of tub were filthy and the bedspreads at least 50 yrs old. Came back at midnight and the "gym" was filled with very rowdy, very young unsupervised children. This was the only thing about our weekend that wasn't... More

I've stayed here several times. The room is always clean and nice, the hot breakfast buffet is always delicious. The indoor pool and jacuzzi is always clean and wonderful. I love this hotel. I have had a WONDERFUL time every time I've stayed here.

Nice hotel with a great full complimentary breakfast Buffett. The room was very clean, comfortable, and affordable. I would recommend the hotel to anyone traveling to South Bend and don't mind staying at an independent brand hotel. Very much ran like a full service branded hotel.

The room was great and very comfortable. Although we did not use it, the indoor pool was a real plus. The staff at the restaurant was incredible. The breakfast buffet was very nice. The front desk was accommodating by allowing us a late check-out.

One of the best in the South Bend/Mishawaka area. More than just a Notre Dame football game option, this hotel is good year-round with an indoor pool (in addition to outdoor pool). I have stayed at many hotels in the area, and this one is by far the best. The rooms are great, staff is nice, and the amenities are... More

I stayed here while attending a Notre Dame home football game. The experience was amazing and it was in part due to the excellent service and accommodations provided by the hotel staff.
