Our daughter is a student at Saint Mary’s college and the Inn is the perfect for move in as well as for visits as it is almost part of the campus. The staff is always friendly and helpful and the free shuttle is great!

The Inn at Saint Mary's is an amazing hotel. From the minute we stepped foot into the lobby we knew we chose the right hotel. The lobby was clean and laid out well. The staff at the front counter were very friendly and made check in a breeze. They were very accommodating by give our party adjoining rooms that were very spacious and comfortable. They have a great little bar on site. Hannah the bartender we had was amazing. She was very friendly and made sure that everyone was taken care of the entire night.

The Inn at St Mary's has a free breakfast every morning that has something for everyone.

They also have a courtesy shuttle that we used a couple times. One of the drivers, Preston, is fantastic. On our first trip out he gave us a quick driving tour of the Notre Dame campus. The knowledge that he had about the area is great.

We will definitely be staying here again on our next trip to town.

Excellent value that is clean, updated and very well managed. We especially appreciated the shuttle drivers Preston Chaney, Jimmie Smith and Mary who safely transported us around town and provided valuable info about Notre Dame & St Mary’s. Thank you and we will be back!

Dont go during hockey/soccer time if you want to relax. Kids all over the place(we have kids)not able to use the pool orhot tub,full of team kids abd parents. Went to go use hot tub very early in the morning and no towels bathroom trashed from night before. Eating breakfast tables are not wiped down or in the lobby .at this price point we had no use of amenities and staff should be going around wiping banisters and tsbles off.255.00 we felt wasted maybe at a time when not run over by catered teams and parents.

Dear Guest, I am so sorry for your experience. Like most industries, we are struggling with staffing and doing the best we can. There was an unusually unruly group of kids over the weekend that will not be returning. I do hope you will try us again. Have a great day. Sincerely, Kim Allsop & Team

We were expecting to have a double with a pull out sleeper sofa, and did not. Additionally, our group paid extra to have breakfast available at 0600 rather than 0700. Many other groups showed up, there was no food available, no coffee and no juice - though we paid extra to ensure our group would be fed. They were ill-prepared for this kind of activity.

The hubs & I recently travelled from CO to CT during COVID pandemic. I booked our stay based upon a July review that mentioned traveling during pandemic. I called the hotel directly and spoke to a really nice young woman. She reviewed the COVID cleaning protocol & assured me that every effort was being made to keep customers safe. Even though there is signage on all doors that say masks are required, NO one in the lobby area was wearing a mask except the front desk clerk. The hotel is old and worn and the photos on line do not match the actual room. The carpet was stained, bathroom fixtures were outdated, I won’t bore you with all the details. All in all we were disappointed. We cancelled our reservation for the return portion of our trip and stayed at a gorgeous historic hotel in Davenport, Iowa where everything was immaculate and COViD procedures were followed.
If you choose to book this hotel, be very careful to not get tricked into booking on Reservations.com. from the hotel website. I had asked the young woman at the hotel if she could make the reservation for me, but she told me it would be better for me to book online. maybe she was busy??? Anyway, I accidentally booked on a Reservation.com trap & was charged an additional $20 for the privilege.

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We do our best to assure all guests are wearing a mask, we even free masks at the front desk. However, if guests are eating or drinking in our Starbucks and bar, masks are not required. We do hope you will try us again in the future. Sincerely, Kim Allsop, General Manager

I’m a little skeptical when I see others’ glowing reviews singling people out by name. We were there for Easter and I didn’t sense much engagement from the staff. The front desk is awkwardly placed for the reception staff to greet or engage with guests and They were either on the phone or not paying attention to the lobby. The breakfast here is an attempt, but it falls short. It was unhealthy and tasteless. Stick with the fruit is my advice to future guests. The fitness room was dirty. Our room was average in cleanliness and some of the room fixtures need to be replaced. The lobby is impressive, but as another reviewer mentioned there were many hanging around the lobby without masks, so we did not feel comfortable. The hallways to the room are very narrow. I kept getting the feeling I was in a dorm. The sitting area in my room was nice and the bed was comfortable (however the amount of hallway light shining in at night disturbed our sleep). Would I stay here again? Sure, but only because it’s practical. My expectations would be for just that and nothing more. The reviewer who called it a boutique hotel must not have stayed in a boutique hotel before. This is like a economy hotel.

Traveled 13hrs and showed up at 0930 in the morning, they were so nice to allow me to checkout late at 1pm so that I could at least get a nap in prior to driving again. I’ve stayed here twice & both times were great. It’s quiet, they have a Starbucks and allow pets (yes even cats, a lot of places say they are pet friendly but only allow dogs!) Bed was comfy, bathroom is nice. Pet fee was a little expensive (esp for a 4 hour nap) but would def stay again! Sorry I didn’t take any more photos, too exhausted.

Very nice hotel.
Was charged $50 incidental fee to be refunded in 3 to 5 days. We are traveling the Midwest and so far have stayed in 7 different hotels. This is the only one that charged this fee. It’s been years since I was charged this type of fee. Not nice!
Great location. Very close to Norte Dame campus. I used their washer and dryer. Worked properly. Charge was $2.50 per load per machine. Washer runs 20 minutes and dryer 60 minutes.

I have stayed here twice,once in June,and then a few days ago for a funeral. Both times was excellent stay,and clean room. Would be nice if the rates I paid were the same for a Notre Dame football weekend,but all hotels then are very high rates. For football games,there is free shuttle to game from St Marys field,across the street from Inn. Kim,the manager was helpful with a billing question;thank you!
