Rooms very nice. The kitchenette has full sized refrig/freezer. Two burner stove, apt sized dishwasher. It had new fixtures, flat screen tv. The tub had a higher side which would be difficult for somebody with handicap to step over and the hot water wasn't real quick in reaching the showerhead. Rooms clean, housekeeping very quick in response when called to advise short a set of various towels. The next day was checked on to see if needed to exchange towels, or needed anything. Hotel manager reported after football season the facility was going to start replacing all counter tops and the tiles in the hot tub. There is already a new pump and mechanics in the hottub.
There is no food available on site, however, no problems if meet people and bring foods of any type to the public area to visit. Many restaurants in area. The bar was only open from 5P on Friday and Sat of ballgame weekend. During this period one cannot take any of their own alcohol to the bar area, however when the bar is not open, guests may enjoy their own person al alcohol while viewing the wide screen television.
During the mornings the Skillet Restaurant in South Bend caters in a fine breakfast buffet.
The town has a bus running to the ND Stadium on a schedule. For $7.00 per person people can be picked up transported to the stadium, enjoy the festivities, and be deposited back to the hotel. It is more cost effective than parking near stadium and fighting traffic (and now construction in the area)
Staff was all very friendly.
The fitness area needs updated. Very minimal, no treadmill. Hopefully it on the list of items to be updated.
There is a laundry area availalbl.
