Warm cookies and great coffee. Was able to leave my 14 year old son safely in lobby until lacrosse coach picked him up. Rooms are large and comfortable. Will definitely stay again next year. They were kind and called.me by name every time I came back to hotel. The location was ideal as well.

Stayed: June 2014, travelled with friends

I wasnt sure what to expect when I booked this room but was very pleased. It was a nice location, next to the campus, the hotel was clean and the rooms had a lot of personality. We went during a time when they were doing renovations. This made some areas look like a work in progress. However the breakfast was plentiful and the common area were very clean.

The cookies were very good and they provided coffee and iced tea throughout the day.

Room Tip: Room 30 was very spacious. West facing windows will over look the baseball and softball fields for N...

The Ivy Inn is a great place to stay! We were amazed by the large room complete with microwave and mini refrig. The room was clean and well kept up. The homemade cookies in the lobby were a nice touch and delicious as well. :) We enjoyed the hot breakfast as well. All the staff was very friendly and helpful. We did take time to walk around the University of Notre Dame. It is a beautiful campus. We would defiantly stay here again if we get the opportunity!

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room!

This hotel is very close to our home and when we had a bad storm come through and left us with out power for 4 days on July 1st, Jennifer Thomas came through for us, with a great rate at the last minute.
The hotel was great, we enjoyed the room and the hot breakfast in the morning. We would definitely recommend this hotel. It is close to Notre Dame with shopping and restaurants close by
We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful and will stay here again if we need to.
I asked Jen to put us on the power outage list!! LOL.

My husband and I lost part of our home in a storm on July 1. We needed a place to stay for a couple of weeks while we looked for a house rental. Ivy Court is just minutes from our home so we stopped in. They checked is in quickly and painlessly. The entire staff was so nice and helpful the entire 2 weeks we spent there. The one staff member that stands out is John, every time he saw us he knew who we were and remembered why we were there. That made us feel very welcomed.
Every morning we went to the breakfast in the main lobby-every time the food was perfect. So much to choose from. Our room was clean, parking very convenient. The hotel is just steps from Notre Dame, from our room we could see the Golden Dome-I know I leave in the area but it was nice to see from our room. Eddy Street Commons is just a short walk, plenty of restaurants. Overall, Ivy Court is the best place to stay!

Having grown up in South Bend & traveled through the city many times since, I find the Ivy Court to be perfect for my needs. It's located on the edge of Notre Dame's campus, allows easy access to downtown, & is neither too close to nor too far from major highways. The staff is first-rate, the rooms comfortable, the breakfast better than most such buffets. Because it is independent, it doesn't feel like cookie-cutter chain accommodations. They also work to reduce their impact on the environment. This place is a great value & a welcoming inn. Both stays, once with my 90-year old father & the other after dropping off a teenage son, made me want to come back again.

I booked this inn on the Internet because it was a mile from a relative's house and it sounded like a nice place. We try to support independent businesses as much as possible. I decided to book the suite for no other reason than to treat myself, and it was a good choice. I had a nice living space to spread out in. The bed was comfy (well if it wasn't, I had another double bed and a pull out queen couch to use)! The area was clean and quiet. The breakfast was very nice, and the ever-present cookies welcome. The inn is very close to Notre Dame University and the surroundings are beautiful. There are shops and nice restaurants close by. I will definitely book this inn on our next trip to South Bend.

Room Tip: Give the suite a shot.
