Reviewed November 3, 2011

We stayed here after a Notre Dame football game. It was only an hour from campus, right off the toll road. The beds were very nice, room clean, breakfast so-so. What makes the place outstanding is the honesty of the staff. We left on a Sunday morning and on Tuesday morning I realized I had left a leather jacket hanging in the closet. I called, not expecting anything, and the woman at the front desk said she had been just about to call me. The woman cleaning the room had just discovered the coat and had turned it in to her. They had my billing information, so they arranged to have it shipped to me (of course I paid for shipping). They even called when it was picked up by the shipper to let me know to look for it in a few days. I had begun to believe that this kind of honesty (which I expect of my kids) was passe. They revived my faith in the goodness of people. Thank you Best Western- I will definitely stay here again!!

A friend found this hotel and it worked out perfectly. The bed was extremely comfortable and the rooms were very clean. It's right off the Toll Road and within an hour of South Bend - we were there for the ND game. The staff was very courteous. The breakfast was free but not very good - missing some fresh fruit and ideally yogurt. All in all a good place to stay!!

Clean, convenient, comfortable, cost efficient and courteous staff...this BW handles all 5 very nicely. No, this is not a 4 or 5 star hotel (2.5-3 maybe); but, they are a welcome option for a weary group of travelers! For 2 nights, we had the king suite, with a door between the LR and BDR (yeah!!), so when I'm up late preparing food for a party the next day, the road weary driver (DH) can ge to sleep). This suite had sofa bed, coffee table, desk/chair, TV armoir, kitchen area with small MW and small ref. (lg. dorm size) in the LR and, in the bedroom, an extremely comfortable bed, with white comforter (or it was triple sheeted?), with 5 super comfy pillows, dresser, 2 bedside dressers, and a 2nd TV. Bathroom was clean, very important! Our 2 young adult sons had a 2 queen-bed room, which was a last minute request (thank you Grace!); their room was also quite satisfactory. Breakfast was fine, as others have previously reported, the boys had no trouble getting thei fill. The finishes were 2-3 star but the hotel is great for what it is.

Room Tip: we had no trouble with noise on north side of hotel, and right across from elevator (usually a no st...

This hotel is located just off of I-80 and only a short drive down to Shipshewana and the prices are very reasonable. We were here 4 nights and couldn't have been more pleased. The beds were wonderful..and I LOVED their pillows!! The hotel was very clean with a good atmosphere, Breakfast was fine but a bit lacking on a variety of fresh fruit. Also, there was no in room fridge or micro. When I stay more than one night, I really like to have those in the room. The front desk was very helpful and friendly. I needed to use the computer/printer in the lobby and the clerk was quick to help me when I needed it. I would be more than happy to stay here again!!

Room Tip: The best tip is to get online, search the various hotels and READ THE REVIEWS. It is amazing at wha...

We were quite pleased with this choice. Easy to find. Grace who check us in was pleasant and helpful. Room was large enough for the furniture. Bathroom was fairly spacious—nice shower head that WORKED with soft water. Breakfast included a couple of hot items plus a variety of breads. With the window open, we did hear traffic all night, but it was not really a problem.

I stayed here a couple of weeks ago, and it was overall a great place. Everything was really clean and comfortable. The vending machines weren't too pricey for a late night snack. I used the pool quite a bit at night, which was pretty convenient and kept very well. The rooms were very clean, and I didn't even run into the housekeeping.
It had one of the best "continental" breakfasts I've ever had at a hotel. They had a variety of foods. The biscuits and gravy was delicious - it reminded me of my childhood. The beds were extremely comfortable. They were much better than other hotels I've stayed at. Finally, the staff was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay again.
