“Home away from home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

What a wonderful place to stay! My family and I stayed here for a Notre Dame football weekend - it is an easy ride to ND - about 15/20 minutes on the highway. The staff was so friendly and welcoming. There was always complimentary coffee, cookies and ice water in the lobby. When I asked if there was decaf one evening, the staff insisted on making a whole fresh pot. The breakfasts were delicious and reasonably priced. The rooms were very nice, quiet and super clean. There are many nearby restaurants and a comfy living room/tv area in the lobby. My kids enjoyed the computer area and we printed our boarding passes there. Great place!

I stay in this area traveling through and for work have stayed a few different hotels, this one is by far the best and I would stay there again. The service was friendly and very helpful. Just walking in to the main lobby you knew you were in for a relaxing stay. the room was clean and did not smell of smoke and mold.

We arrived Friday morning and thought the hotel was perfect! It was convenient for our weekend to South Bend. However, Saturday morning, we noticed ants in our room and had to throw out two bags of items due to the ants on the table! It took over an hour for someone to come to the room to take care of the ants! It would've been nice to ask if we wanted to move to another room, but nothing was said to us!

Stayed here with 2 kids while in town for ND football opener Labor Day weekend. As other reviewers mention, the big plus is this hotel is CLEAN. I have high standards and the housekeepign staff here really derserve a raise, because cleanliness is the primary reason I would come back. My kids used the small indoor pool and it was clean and safe too. Since I am a rewards member we had breakfast included (it is not standard) and the breakfast service was very rocky. It was very crowded on game day, and the waitresses were very nice and really trying hard, but there is a real lack of systems in place to take orders and convey them to the kitchen. The breakfast bar was pretty sad and they ran out of basic things including eggs and also cutlery and coffee. It really needs a management overhall -- and maybe just don't even try table service and focus on the buffer. The second day we opted to forego our "free" breakfast and eat at the pancake house across the parking lot and I was happy with that decision. Also a few other weird things about this hotel -- the toilet was seriously the loudest flushing toilet I have ever heard. My 3 year old was scared of it and made us flush after he left the bathroom. We laughed, but that could be really annoying if you stayed long in this place. Also, the toilet paper holder is so far from the toilet under the sink my 6 year old couldn't reach it. She said "They really should put a holder on the wall where people can reach it." She is right! Also, something more serious, and maybe not fixable, is the noise level in the rooms. We could really hear the people above us walking and the people next to us talking and coughing. Luckily our neghbors weren't up too late so it was berable but I used ear plugs the second night and would only stay on the top floor if I ever stayed here again.

Room Tip: Choose the top floor if you don't like to hear people walking above you.

Two of the staff, Cindy and Corey, were extremely welcoming and stayed late to accommodate us, a group of hungry, tired bikers who stopped overnight on the way to Milwaukee for the Harley Davidson 110th anniversary. We pulled in at 9:50, 10 minutes before closing, and they graciously stayed so we could eat and be taken care of. Great job and great employees!

Great place to relax and regroup at the end of the day. You can start the day with a great breakfast and at the end of the day relax in a comfortable room very quiet to the outside world... exercise in a room filled with whatever the average health conscious person is interested in.

Absolutely Lovely, the only thing I had a hard time with was the parking lot, it is shared with other hotels, otherwise it was a great experince and the hotel staff was outstanding. Place was extremely clean and very close to Notre Dame University
