“A 5-star hotel”
Reviewed July 26, 2007

We traveled from Sacramento, CA to So. Bend, Indiana and stayed at The Inn at St. Mary's for 5-nights. It's a beautiful hotel that we feel rates among the best. Staff were extremely helpful and courteous, the hotel was squeaky clean, large rooms, a great morning breakfast was provided, and on one evening, a free, delicious barbecue dinner was served. A free shuttle was provided for transportation to and from the airport. All this for a very reasonable rate. The hotel is located near beautiful St. Mary's College and Notre Dame.
Staff and managment should be commended for running a high-quality hotel.

The Inn at St. Mary's is a great place to stay if you're visiting Notre Dame. It's about a 3/4 mile walk to the campus; they also provide a shuttle that will take you to the campus or other places in town (taxis in South Bend are notoriously expensive, so you'll want to consider the shuttle as an option if you didn't bring a car).

The hotel is very pretty, rooms are comfortable and roomy. Breakfast is a cut above the usual hotel buffet; it includes several hot dishes. The facilities are good; no pool, but a nice exercise room, hot tub and sauna.

The staff was very helpful and pleasant. The hotel is definitely worth the cost, especially if you're visiting the college.

We have stayed at the Inn at Saint Mary's 3 times and have already booked a stay there again for this summer. It is by far one of the best hotels we have stayed in anywhere in the world. It would rate second only to the Palace in Montreaux, Switzerland.

The rooms are spacious, extremely clean and very up to date. Much better than many upscale (and costly hotels)

The full breakfast buffet is superb and there is a small bar in the hotel also. It is also convenient to the Tollway, but you do not hear the noise.

For an interesting sidetrip, drive to Shipshewana, just a short drive away. This Amish area is similar to the PA Dutch area, and there are great places to eat.
