Fairfield Inn & Suites South Bend at Notre Dame
Ranked #12 of 30 Hotels in South Bend
Reviewed June 17, 2014

Other than The Morris Inn, you can't stay closer to campus. Great building, relativly new, great staff. It is very hard to get a room here for gamedays, but if you are on campus for another event, this is a great place. Close to Eddy St, so you can enjoy the nightlife and not need to worry about driving or getting a cab. Plenty of places to eat close to it as well.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of campus!!!

Hello 11Timechamps,

Our location just celebrated our 4th anniversary and we are so happy to be a part of the Eddy Street Commons as well as the Notre Dame community. The view of campus from our rooms is definitely a highlight for us as well. Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel and hope you stay with us again!

Stayed here on my road trip to Pittsburg. Great location with the campus across the street and a great little pedestrian mall area with lots of dining options nearby.

The hotel is clean and staff was nice. Not luxury but very tolerable

Stayed here during kids' summer camp at Notre Dame. The hotel is directly across the street from the university and is walking distance to the football stadium/Joyce Pavilion sports complex and Eddy Commons (eateries include Five Guys, Jamba Juice, Kilwins, Chipotle, irish pubs, sandwich shops, etc.). Book your reservations way in advance for football game days... I can see why its in demand. Beautiful brick hotel, clean! clean! clean! comfortable rooms with modern amenities. Our room was on the smallish side without microwave/ref. The shower is a nice spacious walk-in with glass doors. Breakfast is the same stuff they serve at all the Marriott chains (the usual carbs + carton scrambled eggs, flat sausage patties, milk, juice, coffee, etc). Ample well-lit free parking. Quiet residential area surround.

Dear Minniemae,

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. Our location is very nice because we are so close to all the restaurants at the Eddy Street Commons and Notre Dame’s campus. It is very convenient being able to walk to the different camps that Notre Dame host. While our standard rooms do not offer a microwave or refrigerator, our studio suites do have those amenities. Thank you again and we hope you stay with us again next time you visit South Bend!

Born and raise in Tokyo makes this guest very sensitive to cleanliness and efficiency.

Fairfield Inn and Suites South Bend at Notre Dame is not a five star hotel albeit their staff, cleanliness and service would rival one. One super home away from home, which is personified by Carmen who serves a comp breakfast as well as the front desk people who treat each person as a special guests.

Been to at least a dozen Fairfield's - this one is the clear Banzai winner.

Mr Marriott please keep up the fine work

My Dad and I stayed here while attending his 50th Reunion at Notre Dame. The staff was lovely and couldn't have been more helpful. The lobby is comfortable and my Dad and his pals were able to relax in a comfortable area around the fireplace in the dining area in the evenings before turing in. Rooms are pretty basic, no refrigerator in the one we stayed in, but beds were comfortable enough. Clean, simple. If you can, I'd recommend getting one that faces the university, otherwise you face the parking lot out back. Breakfast is included and it's just ok - people enjoyed making their own waffles in the waffle maker, but I suspect the eggs are out of a carton. I did see and indoor pool, but we didn't use it. There's also a small outdoor area facing campus that you can access from the dining area that is gated and can only be accessed from the street using the hotel card key. Rooms don't have balconies.

Really, it's about the location. If you're visiting for Notre Dame, you can enjoy your stay without ever needing to get into a car. We were lucky to stay here during a beautiful weekend and it's a lovely walk to campus. Eddy Commons is right there, so there shops, restaurants, and and Irish pub are steps away.

Room Tip: Face campus if you can.

Hello Ann R,

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We are so glad to hear you and your father had such a good stay with us for ND Alumni weekend. The view facing campus is our personal favorite too. Our location is key being walking distance to all the restaurants and shopping in the Eddy Street Commons along with just across the street from the University of Notre Dame. I apologize that breakfast was not up to the Fairfield standard. We are in the process of trying some new items to improve our breakfast. Hopefully with your next visit we will have more options and better quality for you. We look forward to your next stay with us!

Excellent service, very clean, staff courteous and delicious breakfast. Even when the inn is crowded the service is outstanding and food is plentiful. Great location. Always a delight to stay here. We come often to visit our family. I would recommend the Inn highly. Great trip!
