“Good stay! :)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2013 via mobile

Mostly clean! Service was great! Friendly and very nice! My husband and I really enjoyed the hottub! So did my dad. I thought the price was a little high and breakfast could be better! All around it was good and good stay! It's really nice when you stay at a hotel that the front desk is nice and friendly! This hotel definitely succeeded on that!

There's nothing fancy here, but I also found little to complain about. We stayed one night on a road trip. We arrived late, almost midnight, and quickly found the hotel right off the Indiana Toll Road. Even at the late hour, there were two friendly people at the front desk to check us in quickly and we were in our room in minutes. The room was as expected: clean and comfortable. In the morning, the breakfast was the average "low-end" choice hotels offering but sufficient for our needs. If I had one complaint, it's that silly $1 "safe fee" that you have to ask to have removed. If you really want one more dollar, just raise the rate! I wouldn't hesitate to stay again or recommend the place.

I've stayed here several times during the past few years (returning again next week). My stay a couple weeks ago went well. Check-in was smooth; the room was clean and well cared for. Best of all, the price was just right! Breakfast in the morning was simple but took care of my AM cravings. Elkhart is a good area to stay in when driving east of the Chicago area. This motel along with several others offers good rates, located just off the interstate, several restaurants, Wal-Mart/K-mart, and nicely priced gasoline. It’s a good location stop. If you’re driving west, leave after breakfast in the AM and miss the Chicago rush hour! This is a newer property, complete with an elevator and plenty of parking.

We stayed here when the hotel was fairly new. At that time, it was nice. Unfortunately, it isn't anymore.

I'll echo much of what the last reviewers said in terms of need of update (if the lobby was being painted a week ago, they haven't made much progress in that time - it's still in rough shape) and cleanliness. Our room also smelled some of smoke, the carpets were wrinkled and very dirty, wallpaper was torn and peeling off the wall. It just needs work. Beds were OK, but the hotel must be aware of the need for an update there also. They put thick padded mattress covers on them to increase the comfort. Not enough blankets were provided. Only one thin blanket.

I can't comment on the breakfast as we didn't eat it. Many restaurants in the area.

The pool area also appeared in need of renovation. Pool markings were faded or non-existent in areas.

With so many other hotel choices in the area, I'll stay elsewhere in the future.

NOTE: If you're planning a weekend stay in football season, check the Notre Dame schedule first. Hotels in this area tend to hike the prices up significantly (one night here was $140) and require a 2 night stay on game weekends. Last minute availability is non existent.

The hotel has signage indicating they are renovating however it appears that they are only painting the lobby. The hotel entrance is less than inviting and the rooms are in desperate need of updates. There was visible dirt and debris on all the floors and in the elevator and stairways. Although our room indicated it was non smoking, the entire room smelled of smoke and there were burn marks on the bathroom fixtures. We found a cockroach in the room and reported it to the front desk. The attendant (Annie) was not very helpful as she indicated she was shocked and indicated they had not had 'that particular bug' there but did offer to move our room to a higher floor that had recently been sprayed by the exterminator. There was no apology for this or accomodating gesture that most hotels would offer. The Manager Mel (who only works at night) however did apologize later in our trip. There are many newer hotels in the Elkhart area as well as those that appear better maintainted. The management should consider investing in upgrades and providing additional customer service training for the employees.

Room Tip: It is worth considering paying the extra and staying in South Bend if you are travelling for a footb...

Sleep Inn Elkhart is in a great location but is in need up updates. The entry is fine the room is well outdated other than the flat screen television, and the breakfast isn't worth your time. With the other hotels so close you would think they would take more pride in their inn and update it.

This Sleep Inn is a great place. We have stayed there twice in two years and both times it was excellent. Rooms are comfortable, beds and bedding were great. We look forward to staying there whenever we go cross country. We got there around midnight and the night manager was kind enough to allow us to sleep in past check out. We drive longer days just to reach this place.
