I should have taken the sign on the door of the lobby more seriously "Excuse our mess while we renovate". Stopped up toilet, boarded over work in hallway, construction work - screwing in drywall? - started at 8am on Sunday morning. Plus we could hear every door shut and footstep taken. Since we were near the entrance to the building,... More

I stayed here a few weeks ago while visiting family between business visits. We had one of the suites, and it was extremely comfortable with two tvs, a sitting room , and a fridge. The hotel is right next to ND, so I imagine it's an ideal place to stay for football games. The free breakfast was also a welcome... More

We spent a long day touring in Michigan only to find no room availability, so we headed to South Bend. We lucked into the last room at this boutique hotel adjacent to Notre Dame University, and felt lucky instead of desperate. The building looks like a large New England clapboard house, parking is close, the rooms are large, the décor... More

Warm cookies and great coffee. Was able to leave my 14 year old son safely in lobby until lacrosse coach picked him up. Rooms are large and comfortable. Will definitely stay again next year. They were kind and called.me by name every time I came back to hotel. The location was ideal as well.
