good hotel within easy access of the highway. rooms are standard as to be expected from this group, no surprises. Front desk staff seemed a little out of sorts with a very long check in process and not a lot of local knowledge other than what was within about a mile of the hotel. Breakfast was quite good.

I typically stay here when I come into.town and never had a bad experience til yesterday. Mid day I stop back at my room to do some work and I find a cockroach running up my wall. I couldn't pack up fast enough and get out of there. They refunded me for that day and gave me 5000 priority points....

Located minutes from ND and across the street from Bruno's (GREAT PIZZA), it's a good hotel. There was a small mix up at check-in and they upgraded us to a three room "suite". Breakfast was good. $115 was the rate we got online. Very comfortable beds and the room was pretty clean. Friendly staff. A good visit.

Stayed here for a football weekend and paid $500/night. Pros: Rooms seemed clean, beds were comfortable and rooms were large. Cons: The front desk was never manned -- someone always had to appear from a back room. Our toilet flushed every half hour by itself all night long. I complained the next morning, the front desk sent the maid to...

I visited South Bend this past week and stayed at the Holiday Inn Express just off Notre Dames campus. I am a member of their reward program and always stay at this brand when traveling. I have always found them to be a great value with clean rooms and top notch service, this was not the case this time. First,...

My family and I visted our son attending college and enjoyed our stay very much! The room was clean and the breakfast was free! It included scrambled eggs, muffins, yogurt, bagels, coffee and the like. We will definitely stay here again!

This was my first stay at this location and it was not too good. On average I stay 8-10 nights per month at Holiday Inn Express hotels and this location fell well below expectations. Check in was very slow and while I will not blame hotel personnel for slow computers, they seemed to be quite unorganized. When I checked in...

The interior of the hotel (lobby and hallways) is nice. Stayed in room 207 which was right off the elevator, but it was pretty quiet. It was a little more beat up and they hadn't fully cleaned the room. When I called, they quickly came to the room to take care of it. The room was spacious (we had a...

Although overall this hotel is very nice on the inside and pretty uniform to all holiday inn express hotels, it is not located in the safest of areas in South Bend.
