Attended a wedding in Watervliet, this was was chosen hotel stay for guest. Pretty decent, clean. Nice customer service ,ok breakfast. Walls were a little thin , so you could hear through them. Bed is comfortable , nice fluffy pillows. They have a water park in the hotel which we did not attend so I can't say anything about that.... More

My husband and I were given tickets to a Notre Dame football game at the last minute, and we could not find a hotel in the South Bend area or even close. I was given the option by Marriott to stay at this hotel. What a great find! First of all, it is about a 45-50 minute drive from South... More

Nice hotel and staff very friendly. Short drive to the beach , shops eating. I would have been very unhappy if I was coming here for the "waterpark". It is expensive and very tiny. We did have a very rude clerk when booking the rooms but onsite everyone was friendly.

Stayed here because the courtyard in St Joseph was booked for the night. Hotel was clean and staff were friendly and attentive when I called to ask them to have the room next door quiet down after 11pm. Price was way higher than I would normally pay for a Fairfield, by quite a bit. This is the first Marriott property... More

I recently stayed here for a wedding (Thursday and Friday nights). We had two hotels to choose from, and we chose this hotel because we were quoted a lower price. Most of my family members were also quoted this lower price. After we checked in, we found out that the hotel had raised the price by $50 for the second... More

We stayed this past weekend for the first time and had a amazing visit! The front desk person was great at check in and check out. Every housekeeper and maintenance guy we ran into always greeted us and ask how our stay was going. It's obvious that everyone that works there is very passionate about what they do. The General...

We were initially attracted to this hotel because of the indoor water park. The 2 big slides are closed during the week, which is just fine for my family. We enjoyed our 1st trip last year so much that we came back again this year. This year, the staff really is unbelievably accommodating. It starts with the manager Brad who... More

Stayed here in 2013 for family reunion. Loved it then, still do. Staff were great hosts, rooms perfect, clean, spacious, modern. Full breakfast, restocked quickly despite 4th of July crowd. Rates a bit steep but again- 4th of July. Most memorable were the hostesses who checked us in and out- very helpful. Has a small version of a water park... More
