“Just not the breakfast”
Reviewed 22 June 2013

The room was a bit small, but it was clean and appropriately furnished. Large desk, comfortable bed and easy hair. Nice grassy area in back to walk the dogs. Quiet. Front desk staff were friendly and informative.
The breakfast was pretty bad. There was no bread for the toaster, just bagels and biscuits. The only protein was scrambled eggs - the powdered kind - some limp bacon and the worst yogurt I have ever had. The eggs made me gag.
So you will sleep well, but maybe skip the breakfast. I would stay again, or maybe at the La Quinta up the road.

Our family of four stayed at the Sleep Inn in South Bend for one night on a recent road trip. The hotel appears to be somewhat newly updated. Carpeting appears new and breakfast area appears newly decorated. We had a room with 2 queen beds. The room size was decent. The room had a frig and microwave. Our bathroom had a large shower, no tub. The kids enjoyed the indoor pool. The staff was very nice and the free breakfast was good. The location of the hotel though was on the outskirts of the wrong side of town. We wanted to visit Notre Dame before leaving town and realized we were on the opposite side of South Bend than the University. We found it best to not go through the downtown area but to head back out to the Interstate and take the exit closest to campus, a little out of the way.

Stayed here for my son's tennis tournament at Notre Dame (an easy 12 minute drive).Very comfortable and clean hotel with everything well kept. The hot breakfast was delicious with many choices including protein such as omelets, sausage and biscuits, bacon, and sausage patties. The staff were all genuiniely friendly and seemed like they wanted to help you and enjoyed their jobs. I will stay again when I retun to the area.

Room Tip: Lots of kids sporting activities in South Bend. Best to be on the top floor on the ends, I think, as...

We stayed at the hotel during a hockey tournament. We loved the couple who ran the hotel. hands-on, they took a personal price in all they did. They worked at the front desk, served us a lovely hot breakfast, and went out of their way to help us throughout our stay. The hotel room was meticulously cleaned and the entire stay reflected the care and thoughtfulness of the management.

The hotel is located a few blocks from a small airport and a short drive to Notre Dame.

Our first trip to South Bend on 11/2/12 for a Notre Dame game was wonderful. We stayed at the Sleep Inn which was convenient but most of all friendly. I can not say enough about the staff , they were friendly, and all went out of their way to assist us in all of our needs. The complimentary breakfast was better than most and the attendant was excellent, catering to everyones needs.I called several times before our arrival with questions and JAY was very patient and informative. Jay Patel was at the front desk during our stay and went above and beyond to assist us on our first trip to Notre Dame-thanks Jay! We hope to stay at Sleep Inn in South Bend for another Notre Dame game in the future..
SINCERELY,

Easy to find.
This is a well run hotel. We interacted with three front desk people and all were responsive and knowledgeable. The lobby and rooms are clean. All room facilities were in good working order. Breakfast fully stocked, on time, with a smile.
comfy bed though listed as a queen and that's a joke. Quiet.
Cleaning staff left the room OCD tidy. My compliments.
one con that is not unique to this hotel, right now their parking lot was an ice rink.

I stayed here due to late planning for a football game. Inflated prices for game day that do not cover amenities. free breakfast closes way too early so I didn't even see it. typical Choice brand hotel with prison like atmosphere and poor attempts at making rooms ornate. they clearly never do a proper "deep clean" once a month. Heating was either way too cold or warm...never could get temp right with the thermostat.
