Needing to travel on what turned out to be Notre Dame’s commencement weekend, we had looked to stay overnight at South Bend which would be the half-way point for our travels but were shocked by the room rates and limited availability even on a Thursday evening. Discovering that it was commencement weekend at Notre Dame, we looked for options close by and found this hotel less than 20 minutes away was priced normally and highly rated. It turned out to be a great choice as the hotel is very clean and well maintained with large comfortable rooms that include a kitchen area and large refrigerator for extended stays, a great staff and a nice complimentary breakfast and breakfast room to enjoy it in. In addition to the standard pool and fitness room, there is also an outdoor courtyard with seating, covered grills, a putting green and a basketball half court that are particularly nice for those staying for an extended period. At checkout, I commented that the room rate was very reasonable compared to the crazy rates just a few miles away in South Bend. The lady at the front desk stated that this was a typical situation for Notre Dame commencements, football games and other big events; even the price of gas skyrockets in South Bend at these times. While we would recommend staying here at any time; it is a particularly good option for those traveling to Notre Dame for a large event.
