The whole idealogy behind a national chain is that you can expect a certain quality without having to read a review. A big mac is a big mac no matter where you are; that is the beauty of a national chain. Not so with this place. We were late getting to this hotel due to the snow, so my wife...

My father and I stayed at this room so we had a place to stay after watching the Notre Dame/Pitt game. I am a 30 year old man and it takes alot to disgust me as much as this room did. Usually all hotel rooms are the same to me as long as the bed is comfortable and the shower...

We stayed here while traveling on the interstate. We saw the coupon at a rest area and it looked like a good deal, about $45. On the positive side, there were no bedbugs and I slept well. The bedding seemed clean, the bathroom was clean. A modest breakfast is included: cold cereal, pastries, and juice. BUT...the ac didn't seemed to...

I have never been more disappointed in a hotel! This hotel is loacted near the airport and within 4 miles of ND but in a very questionable section of South Bend. We were in a room that connected to the room next door - the locks were broken between the rooms and they had the mini-fridge/microwave up against the door...

I was on a business trip to South Bend, stayed couple of days at the Econo Lodge. The room was clean compared to some ofther motels of the same price range. Actually room looked the same like the hotels where I paid 50% more. Defenitely worth for the price paid.

Yes, we were in town for a football game (as a fan for the visiting team), and we just wanted a bed to sleep in, but the Econo Lodge is hands down the worst hotel that I've ever stayed in. On the up-side the staff seemed nice, especially since they allowed me to receive my last-minute game tickets via FedEx...

Well, at least it's cheap, and that is really the only reason to stay. We had a small roach problem...we had a lot of small roaches. Bathroom was old and dirty, toilet in disrepair. It was a stopover for me on a long trip, so luckily I was not in the room very long. I'd recommend spending another 10 bucks...

My husband and I stayed here this weekend for a ND football game. Normally I don't bother writing reviews but this hotel was so bad that I could not wait to get home to write this. Not only did we pay almost $200 per night, but the room looked like it had not been cleaned in years. The bathroom was...

We rented and prepaid a room for 2 nights for an ND game at $147 a night. They never cleaned the room after the first night; did not offer to correct the problem and told us we had to wait until the morning to talk with the manager. The manager was totally unresponsive and refused to honor the on line...
