This is a very nice Holiday Inn Express, I wish I had more to share but my family and I were traveling and got in around 2am and were out by 7 so didn't have much time to enjoy it. Helpful Tip....When we went in June much of South Bend was under some kind of road construction so it made... More

Booked this last minute with a special rewards member discount, but when we got to hotel, front desk staff informed us that we booked the absolute last double bed room and it just happened to have a broken lock, which could only opened with the master key. Um, what? We we were tired but not having any of it, so... More

Clean and comfortable room. Remodeling is going on but there weren't any inconveniences. We stayed here while we were in town for our daughter's wedding and it fit our budget and was perfect for 2 nights. Didn't eat at the buffet but it looked as you would expect for a HIE. A few restaurants surround the hotel if you should... More

We booked a few rooms for my daughters wedding and I was the nervous and forgetful father. But all the staff were so helpful thru out our stay.

First, Andrew was amazing from check-in to handling a situation for us. He was wonderful. Bed was comfortable. We were staying near ND for a swim meet. Hotel was in tip top shape and breakfast was great! I love the new style of the hotel. We will recommend and will stay here again! Thank you Andrew and HIE!

Hotel seemed clean and quiet. Main issue was that the air conditioning didn't work, and the room was hot all night long. Reported issue to front desk, but they had no luck. In the morning, the front desk clerk was in a panic as only one housekeeping staff showed up, and they had no one to clean the rooms or... More

The pros of my stay: The bed was comfortable, the layout of the room was nice with new carpeting, a couch, flat screen TV, the bathroom was nice with good water pressure in the shower, and the breakfast was standard Holiday Inn fare. While it didn't bother me in any way, the hotel is under renovation and you can tell.... More

Challenging and complicated - but they made it right. After check-in, the first room was halfway cleaned: bed made but no towels or toiletries, plus the bathroom hadn't been finished. Second room, the electronic door lock wouldn't accept the key card. Three distinct sets of card keys were created, all with little success. I left for an hour to complete... More

Not as nice as the other Holiday Inns we stayed at on our way home from California. Hotel was under renovations so tiles near floor in bathroom were not great as they were not completed. Room was comfortable, shower pressure OK. Not alot of restaurants in the area. Overall area hotel was located in was not great. Breakfast was good.
