We arrived after midnight and got a room. Pleasantly surprised. Spacious and had a refrigerator as well. We weren't sure how long we were staying. We stayed 4 nights before we had to leave because they were full. We never received newspaper at the door, but it seemed as if others on the hallway received paper at their door. Continental breakfast was good. Had tasty, warm cinnamon rolls on the bar along with usual cereal, muffins, bananas and oranges. Location is about 2 miles from Notre Dame and 5 miles from hospital. They said there was free internet in the lobby but each time I tried it was slow as molasses and it took me 30 minutes to try to send one message late at night.
On the third day, I asked the hotel if we could extend through weekend because the relative we came to see had passed away. He said they were full, but he would check and let us know. When we came back later that day, I asked if he was able to help us and there was no message with a yes or no. So I started asking again and they couldn't help us out. I understood not being able to help us, but I didn't understand not having a message later that afternoon to let us know definitely.
Great location near fast food options, and Notre Dame.
