“Very Comfortable, Nice and Clean!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2008

We have stayed in the area for Notre Dame football games each of the last 4 years, and this hotel is the best one we've tried (see my reviews of Jameson/Signature Inns in South Bend and Elkhart, and the Courtyard by Marriott next door). This time we brought both kids, aged 11 and 8.

Football guests are greeted with a glass of Asti Spumanti and petit fours; like all of the other hotels we've stayed at here, you have to schlep your own luggage - the staff is nice and smiley from behind the desk though! The room is a 'suite' with an armchair, couch, desk and 'kitchen' area (microwave, fridge, coffe/tea setup and supplies, good size counter and sink) on one side, and the beds, sink/vanity area and bathroom on the other. There was a TV in each section, good when travelling with kids!

The furnishings looked brand-new - the tags were still on the extremely-comfortable mattresses! The closet is good sized, and there are three small dressers. The bathroom is actually big enough to move around in, the towels were large and fluffy, and the shower had good water pressure and the temperature stayed consistent even when there must have been a lot of people getting ready at the same time on game day. I appreciated the full array of toiletries (including body lotion, hair conditioner, separate facial and bath soaps)- most of these hotels give you only one tiny bottle of shampoo and one sliver of soap.

Unlike a previous reviewer, I didn't hear any conversations through the walls despite the hotel being full. My only complaint with the room is the heat or A/C fan - when it's on it is LOUD and blows forcefully on whomever is sleeping in the bed closest to the window. There is a digital temp control but nothing to adjust the fan itself - it's either on, off, or "auto" based on temperature.

The indoor pool was chilly (it was not cold that weekend - mid 60's during the day) but my kids didn't mind - the hot tub was great though! The pool area is attractive and seems new or newly renovated with tables and chairs and lots of towels.

The included buffet breakfast is fine, my kids got a big kick out of the waffle irons. They also had "McMuffin" makings, a variety of breads, pastries and cereals, yoghurts, fresh whole and cut fruits. Only downside was the juices were way too sweet - they need to adjust the water/concentrate ratio of the dispenser.

For $239 a night (plus $30 in taxes) I thought it was a much better deal than the Courtyard next door, which three years ago I felt was horrendously overpriced for what you got (maybe they've reduced their prices since then?). I would absolutely choose this hotel over the others I've mentioned, although I'd like to try the new Hilton at St. Mary's but not for football ($1,000 for the weekend!).

The room service menu looked interesting - a local wine and tapas restaurant supposedly provides in-room waiter service! However we needed kid-friendly food quickly so we just got takeout from the Papa Vino's across the driveway and it was very good.

Feel free to email me with any questions! Go Irish!!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2008

A decent and new hotel in a nice area, surrounded by good choices of dining and shopping. My only concerns were with the quality of the construction and the design of the room. I was distrurbed to hear a normal telephone conversation from the room next door. Not only could I hear someone speaking at a normal conversation voice, I could undertstand the entire converssation through the wall. Obviously, there is not insulation sufficient enough between the rooms. The room also had a strange design, with the desk at the front of the room facing a wall instead of in view of the TV. The batchroom is in the rear righthand corner of the room and there is a lot of wasted space that could have been used elsewhere in the room. There is one TV between the couch area and the bed, on a nightstand that does not swivle and does not face either the couch or the bed. Just seems like not a whole lot of thought went into the layout of the rooms at this facility.

  • Liked — Clean, new
  • Disliked — No sound proofing, design of room was poor

Close to all major shopping and restaurants, the SpringHill Suites is a good choice of hotel for a traveller wanting a room in what appears to be a recently renovated hotel, complete with new linens, beds, complimentary deluxe continental breakfast, pool, pleasant staff, and of course, the Marriott standard of cleanliness and service.

Located beside the Courtyard Marriott in Mishawaka (in which I have also stayed), this hotel represents a better bet for even a fairly discerning frequent traveler.

Stayed there in early September 2004. Agree with everything that has been said by the others! This is an excellent choice!

Got it on a Priceline bid for $37. The staff was super nice and never mentioned Priceline. Got everything we wanted - two double beds and quiet location - and more! Very good breakfast included.

Only difficulty was location. It is not off the freeway, so call ahead and get directions. The hotel is near a bunch of mid-to-upscale malls, so there are plenty of places to eat.

This is what all hotels should strive to be like. The Staff is one of the best I have ever encountered at any hotel....and I travel about half of each year. Knowledgeable and friendly, the front desk really tries to help you find everything you want in the area. The housekeepers do a great job...I found nothing but a spotless room each day I was there for the week. Hallways and the pool/spa are very clean also. The price is right for the value. This is THE place to stay in the South Bend area when going to the Notre Dame ballgames.......
