The Morris Inn got a major face lift and they did an excellent job. I don't know when the reformation project was completed, but the place is brand new. As such, it has all the great amenities that you want: excellent (free) wifi, good plumbing, ipad in the room, good HD TVs, soundproofing in rooms, etc, etc. It is definitely a business-style hotel.
They have a great bar that is open late. The restaurant was good too. The location on the Notre Dame campus is also fantastic if you are visiting the University.
Service was incredibly friendly and always willing to help.
If I have to point out some areas for improvement: 1) I thought the decoration was a bit over the top, 2) the health facilities were very limited and 3) the laundry service slow (all shirt/suit pressing is done off site and as such, you cannot get a 1 hour turnaround if you need it...as I did).
Having said all of this, the Morris Inn wouldn't be a five star in New York, but in South Bend it is. Considering the price, I cannot remember a better hotel value in the last 5 years.
Now I need to figure out how I can get in here on a football weekend!
