I drove to the South Bend area late on a Thursday night for a one-day seminar at Granger Community Church in April of 2007. After I failed to win a bid for a hotel room at Priceline, I booked the cheapest available hotel on Expedia, which was this Red Roof Inn at $62. Though this was more than I had hoped to pay, it was the cheapest in the area. And it is located across the street from GCC, so the location was ideal.
I pulled into town at around 2:00 am, so the lobby was obviously quiet. Check-in was somewhat slow but not too bad. When I entered my room, I was amazed by its size. Both the bedroom and the bathroom were quite spacious, especially for a budget hotel like the Red Roof. The bed was comfortable enough, and the bathroom was impeccably clean.
I have two minor complaints about this hotel. First, there was no TV remote, but at 2:00 am, it really didn't matter to me. I didn't even bother to call the desk to get one, so I have no idea how responsive they would have been to that problem.
The other and somewhat more significant issue was the highway noise, which has been mentioned in other reviews. It was significant, as one might expect from such close proximity to a major interstate highway. I am a heavy sleeper, so once I was asleep, it didn't bother me at all. But for light sleepers, I could imagine how this might present a problem.
In the morning, the continental breakfast was solid if unspectacular. In fact, that description ("solid if unspectacular") might best describe my stay. There was nothing fancy about this place, but it did the job. I had a very pleasant stay at the Red Roof Inn in Mishawaka, Indiana, and I imagine that I might stay here again if I'm in the area.
