My son and I spent two nights at the Sleep Inn for the Notre Dame Purdue football game. In the superheated South Bend lodging market for ND home games, the Elkhart Sleep Inn is a relative "bargain."
Not that $159 per night ($144 AAA rate) is a good rate for a Sleep Inn, but with rooms in South Bend and Mishawaka going for $200 - $400 a night, this is a good alternative.
The room was spacious, the bed comfortable. There was good water pressure in the shower (although I wished it was a few inches higher). The shower and toilet were in the bathroom, with the sink outside the bathroom. This would allow two people to get ready. There was some room around the sink, but not much.
The room had a microwave and a refrigerator. The climate control worked well.
The pillows on the bed were not very comfortable. A few of the towels in the bathroom were comfortable, some needed replaced.
The continental breakfast was very weak. It pales in comparison to the Hampton across the street where we stayed last year.
The Sleep Inn has free high speed internet. Wireless is available in the lobby and breakfast room - but does not reach all rooms. The front desk has ethernet cables for your laptop if you can't get the wirelss.
Some sections of the parking lot were not as well lit as I would have preferred, but I definitely felt safe in the area.
The hotel and the room were quiet. No traffic noise from the Toll Road and no noise from the hallway.
There is a 30 day cancellation policy for rooms for football weekends, although I did check the Sleep Inn website on the Friday before the game and they had rooms available.
