“Finally, a great hotel on the south end of town!”
Reviewed 27 December 2008

This is on the lot that used to house the old Drake Motel, which was a dump. They took it down and built a brand new building, which is now wonderful! Management was very friendly and had cookies at the front desk - yum!

My family of 6 stayed here Christmas week because my parents live on the south end of South Bend in the Gilmer Park area and we wanted to be close to them. We opted for 2 rooms which each had 2 queen beds and a pull-out couch. The beds were the fluffy, comfy kind that you sink into and have a great nights' sleep. Even the pull-out couch was comfy, although we did ask for extra sheets so we could put two bottom sheets and one top sheet on.

Our bathroom was roomy and had a nice granite counter. Towels were nice and fluffy. Shower had one of those curtains on a curved rod so you get more space when you're showering.

Our room had a mini-fridge (not mini-bar), microwave, coffee maker and flat screen TV which sat on the dresser. We also had free Wi-Fi in the room, which was a nice plus.

Because the hotel is new, the furnishings, carpet, upholstery, etc. are all still very nice. You even get that "new" smell in the hotel. Photos on Trip Advisor are accurate.

Continental breakfast was okay, not amazing, but there are plenty of places within 5-10 minutes drive to get coffee and food.

There's a pool (although it's too small for lap swimming) and a hot tub attached to the pool. I think the pool would be fun for small children. There's also a small workout room, which looked pretty nice.

The only disappointing thing was that the dresser was pretty small, but we were living out of our suitcases, so that didn't bother us. But if we were staying long-term I think I would be too small. Overall, I would highly recommend this hotel and will definitely be back!

Note: I'm giving this an Excellent rating for hotels in this price range. This was not a luxury hotel, but for something of this calibre it was excellent.
