“Lovely place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013 via mobile

I would stay here again . This place is as nice as any Hyatt I have stayed at. Location was great for us. Staff could not have been more friendly or helpful. Rooms are big. Our room had a counter with microwave coffepot and a fridge. Room was SPOTLESS.

This charming little in right next to the Notre Dame campus was a delightful surprise! We were greeted by friendly staff. Our room was clean and MOST comfortable complete with a little kitchen area. Beds and pillows were to our liking. Complimentary breakfast was AMAZING--3 kinds of eggs, bacon, sausage, pastries, fruit, cereal, & beverages all served on glass dinnerware with real silverware. This place was far above an average stay!

This is a charming inn - with low ceilinged rooms, very clean, and a high quality complimentary breakfast with hot food. Driving around Notre Dame can be a huge pain in the neck on a busy weekend, so the ability to walk to campus is a pretty valuable perk. The staff is friendly. The rates on football weekends are exhorbitant - but that's the case at all the hotels anywhere near campus. You have to drive to Elkhart to get a reasonable rate at that time. And the Ivy Court books up early for all campus events such as Junior Parents Weekend and Freshman Orientation.

Room Tip: Ask for a campus view or else a room not facing the street.

We have stayed at this property many times over the past 5 years while visiting our son. We have never been disappointed. The breakfast is incredible and the accommodations are excellent. The rooms have always been clean and the grounds very well maintained. The staff has always been very pleasant and helpful. We prefer the corner rooms facing the college because of the view and room arrangement and the front desk has always tried to accommodate our requests. The staff preparing the breakfast and attending to the buffet are always very pleasant, efficient and accommodating. My family and I highly recommend this place.

When we arrived, we did not expect much. But this was soo much better then average. Great big room (twice the average size), clean. huge gym area (all sorts of weightlifting machines). But the best was the breakfast. Great, wonderful options which are prepared in their own kitchen! Real eggs (different kinds) and bacon. You can't find these in a free breakfast anywhere! Too bad the stay was only for one night.

We were in South Bend for a conference at Notre Dame. The hotel staff was very helpful and the room was clean. The breakfast buffet was better than most hotel's that "include breakfast". We were traveling on a budget and think that the hotel was impressive for the money!

Wonderful location, beautiful view. Great hotel: comfortable, clean, classic.
Nice breakfast in the morning and great amenities.
I got a great deal on the room from a travel site, now I've found my hotel for everytime I stay here in South Bend.
I can see Notre Dame from my window.
Wonderful staff too, very polite and helpful.
